Lets just start by saying that the world is a crazy crazy ass place. This past week, this past month, damn this past year has been trying to say the least. Natural disaster and human disasters alike, there had been a lot of anger and pain. It's leaving me and my brain feeling a little drained and overwhelmed. The world right now, it's feeling like a strange place and I am trying to figure out how to deal with it all. Feeling all the feelings.
So you know how I said last week I was going to get a new computer, well I still am, but haven't yet. I had to borrow Barbs computer again like a big ass. (Thanks Barb, you be the best!!) And I tell you what, typing on a computer is so so so much more fantastic then trying to do a damn thing on a little Ipad mini. I can't even access my blog on it, let alone do anything productive (like bills) on it. So number one priority this coming week is .. GET A GOD DAMN COMPUTER!
The past week, well, it happened. Alex turned 12 for party number one and Emerson turned 1 for party number two, and I basically went crazy and got kinda sick. An over abundance of tomatoes and now I am having some pretty funky acid reflux topped with some allergies and sprinkles with exhaustion.(not sleeping because reflux) So I am off tomatoes, taking a step back from coffee (want to bang my head against a wall) and sleeping sitting up. It's been so much fun....Haha, no, no it has not been, but that goes life. I might feel like crap and that nothing that I needed to get done was actually done but we all have those weeks right?
And the mr, while I was feeling all crappy he was out and about putting up fencing like a boss, running around for the tenants, digging holes and running cords for other people then coming home and ripping the siding off the camper. (we need to name this thing) And plunging away at the bathroom, kinda. We are slightly stuck because we can't decide on floor tile because everything looks weird so we have spent even more time this week looking for tile and not finishing the bathroom. But hey, I made a super awesome gorilla stuffed animal for Coco (Emerson) and lots of cakes this week so there is that. And now the camper is ripped wide open so the bathroom is not the only project that needs to be done asap.. (the mr was suppose to wait until the bathroom is done and at least the winter to start doing anything to it) That boy...❤️❤️❤️
Last night we had a packed house for party number three. David and Lori and the gang came up from Rhode Island so we had them and the sisters plus littles over for dinner.( I am really digging this seeing my extended family a lot more, I really like them) I made chili, bread, rice, and veggies. Then I made a apple cake, set out the honey pot, and let people go to town. Feed the littles then yourself is the way to go, no formal sit at the table. Especially when it's family because they know they can just do what ever they want and I am not going to care. Plus the table is to dang small so that wouldn't have worked anyway.
And we are back to Sunday, which already feels weird. The week had been so weird and off and I my time frame is off, plus no more Car Talk on Saturdays so how am I suppose to know the day anymore? . All I know is that I have a house to clean, a computer for shop for, and a skeleton to make to hang on the front door. And I am going to drink one cup of coffee today... I need it so so bad.
I still managed to look at stuff on the internet and here is some of it.
-Glass is the way to go. Which Items In Our Kitchens Contain BPA?
-I want a greenhouse just like this (and one that is actually used as a green house)
-Joyless Feds Order Bakery to Stop Pretending ‘Love’ Is a Real Granola Ingredient. What the hell dudes, not cool.
-This is the new reality. How to Survive a Natural Disaster. Know everything.
-WILL WE EVER RETURN TO NORMAL AFTER TRUMP? I hope to fuck so
-Oh Tom Petty your music was loved. RIP. Tom Petty's final interview
-Brooklyn Gets its First All-Vegetarian School. Wish I had the option when I was in school. All I ever eat were pb and j's or deep fried french fries. The choices were slim and mostly gross. Falafel would have been nice.
-How Your Body Keeps Time. Our circadian rhythm is pretty amazing. And I can 100 percent account for itchy skin at night.
