When a 18 month old stacks dinosaurs and animals better then you, you know he is destined for greatness... or just really good at stacking. Haha
What a week. Miley graduated 5th grade and holy shit I can't believe she is gonna be a middle schooler. Then the next day Barb went and graduated from high school and double holy shit I can't believe she is going to be a college kid. Everyone is getting so old so fast, including me! Besides those two having graduations, all the rest of the littles are done school for the summer so things are all summer vibes up in here. To top it off, it suppose to be like 90 degrees and super humid today and tomorrow so I guess that’s one way to start summer. (Blah, I hate humidity, but what we gonna do? I think I shall find me a sprinkler) Other then spending a lot of time trying to sit still in school gyms on uncomfortable plastic chairs or wooden bleachers, the mr and I have been busy as usual. Nothing new. Hung with the Little’s, did this and that and ran all over town. The mr started building the tree house. I picked the first bunch of radishes and lots of greens from the garden. And then yesterday, it happened. I found it.... A coffee table! It was pretty much exactly what I have been looking for. And why I found it was more or less a fluke. The mr and I were out doing chores and one of the places we were going to wasn’t open yet so we swing by the goodwill, just to kill time. (good will was the mr's idea.. he wants credit) And low and behold, my table was waiting right there for me. And it’s a beaut, vintage mid century piece that is is perfect condition and it was cheap as hell. Meant to be! So good, so good. Not even summer yet and I have knocked one thing off my bucket list. It feels so good to finally have coffee table. I feel like more of an adult already, like I have accomplished the un-accomplishable and now I can take on the world and do and find anything! (These feelings are very much illogical but they are my feelings non the less.)
And now it's Sunday. Not going to lie, it’s been a trying morning. My computer has not been behaving and I actually thought it was broken for a while, but I got it to start to kind of work. But I needed an update which took like 2 hours, but now my computer seems to be fine. But I am still afraid because I have dealt with computer sudden death and it’s a terrible so I am weary at the moment, but what can I do? I am just going hope for all the best and back it all up today. (reminder to all... back up yo shit!) Pat on the back for me though cause while I was waiting for the computer to update, I had time to check in with the dad because today is Father’s Day and I didn't forget! I am such a good daughter and deserve an plaque or some shit.
As for the rest of the day, I got some projects that I am working on, some wood/clay things and such. And I'll probably read a lot because again, the humidity and I am shit when it gets like this. I think if I don't melt away into a puddle, I'll be a success. But I might even go try and find that sprinkler that is out there waiting for me.
