Big. Ass. Yawn. Because we need it, or at least I do.
The week started off with nice, calm sister time, the lake, and happy little littles. Then shit got crazy. From dealing with appliances (still haven't settled on a stove yet) to having to wear a stupid respirator all day everyday because I cannot deal with the off gases that come from polyurethane and now have dry skin blotches on my face, to running around painting prepping, sanding stairs... We are just plan pooped out. Now we just need to plow through the house to get it done and moved in. It's getting so close I can almost imagine it. And then we can get a little bit of our life back. That will be great. We did manage to attend the two weeks early double birthday party for So and Justin because get this, it's really sad, they are going to be in Disney Land for their actual birthdays, and so we party now for them. What kinda bummed me out was that I didn't get to make the birthday cake.(I always make So's birthday cakes..the best birthday cakes) My sister being so nice, didn't want to ask to make it me because we are so busy so she ended up buying a cake from costco. It was crazy and huge and no one could eat a whole slice. All I had to say was maybe next year don't go to Disney Land and I will make the cake.
And now it's the week of Thanksgiving. Are you guys ready for the holidays? I wish I could say that I was but I am not, really really not. Plus it's looking more and more like we have no idea what we are doing. Food? There isn't much in the house. (I am running dangerously low on dried beans and I already ate through most of my farm share and there isn't another pick up for a week and a half) I have not a single thing planned or pre-made, and we are not even sure where we are going yet. But hey, we got a couple days to figure it out right? As for food, well I just have to suck it up and do that major grocery shop that needs being done and get to some of the good stuff before all of it is picked through by the early prepared holiday shoppers. I will buy lots of beans and all the carrots.
As for today, well we gots a few weather sensitive things to do, like picking up all the piles of wood out in front of the house so it doesn't look like a dump and piling scrap metal into the work car before it get covered in snow .( I am so excited about snow!!) Also need to give the cat a stern talking to about hanging out in the road because apparently after 11 years of being an outdoor cat, he now decided that is where all the cool cats hang. And my favorite thing on my to do list today is....dig all the slivers out of my hands. Oh so much fun. At least I will be drinking all the coffee that I could possibly want and eating beans and carrots. Maybe I will bake a pie too. (hahaha, but maybe)
