It's been an up and down week. Some good things like Shannon got her new hip and is now bionic and can pick up cars (or her meds make her think she can), we got to spend time hanging out with all the littles and medium littles this week, and a lot of the mr's family are in town so we get to spend time with them. My sourdough culture is super active now and amazing and I have been baking so much bread. I am thinking that I should start selling it because then I could make lots of bread all the time and have a place for it to go, and money would be good too. And pom poms. I have discovered that I really enjoy making pom poms, and saying the word pom poms. I have so so much freaking yarn that I will never be able to knit through, but pom pom through.. maybe. Plus there is trimming to do, kind of like brushing and trimming a doll head. I get to stylize the pom poms. My younger self is thrilled.
The not so good is that the mr's little brothers mom (he has a confusing family) passed away this week. She was a sweet, somewhat mouthy lady, an amazing mother, and a fun neighbor to have. She especially liked the mr, always shouting at him to come fix this or that and to eat the soup, The stories he would have.... Going to miss that. RIP Nguyet.
So yeah, it's been a little rough.
And then there was the tie. I have to tell you, the mr and I have been together now for 16 years and I have never seen the guy in a tie. Not going to lie, he looked handsome and all, but I don't know, I think I like him better in a flannel. But it was for Nguyet and she would have not like a flannel. No no no. The black shirt, black tie. that she would have liked.
Today I need to get some chores done which include laundry, cleaning out the bad mess in the fridge (there was a dough explosion) and returning the library books that are about to be overdue. I also an thinking about knocking on the neighbors door and telling them it is time for them to take the Christmas tree down. I am starting to get a little creeped out. And if I have time maybe I'll wash my hair, I am feeling like its time.
