Just another day…

John went to take the car to get it's oil changed. Sean played Fortnite. I stared at these pictures from Memorial Day 2016 that have been on my desk for 5 days. I need to go to Costco and the grocery store. My three weeks of food in the freezer has dwindled to maybe 4... The stuff I really don't want anyway. Wednesday, I watched a Authentique Paper Facebook live where the crafter used "scraps" to make a subway tile background. I've been thinking about how to do this on the Memorial Day … [Read more...]

Never ending drama

I hate asking my husband for help. I can never expect it right away, unless it has to do with food. I can ask, and weeks will go by. Either things just don't get done or I just do it myself. My son is turning into that same guy. I ask him to do things, and they don't get done. I asked him to clean his room. He rolled around on his bed for literally 4 hours yesterday, complaining profusely that it is unfair that he should have to clean his room. That was yesterday. It's 4:44 pm. I told … [Read more...]

Civil Discourse

Let me start by saying, I don't like my city councilperson. I didn't like her when she was on the school board, I don't like her now. I think she doesn't listen, she is out of touch, and she sides with power, not with people. Just my experience. When her District 9 Newsletter hit my email today, I read it. I don't normally. It's mostly rah-rah stuff. I read it this time. I want to know what we are going to do about the police. There was some fluff, then the protest is ok as long as... … [Read more...]

LOAD520 – Day 29

What a day! I had my DAR meeting this morning. Sean had his speech teacher at 1. We went cherry picking again! We got Starbucks and went to the grocery store. I made an unexpected dinner. Kathy Ellen said she'd like to talk. I talked to Kathy Ellen until 11. During that time, I baked celebration bread, but I forgot to put in the fruit. Oh well. Dang! It was a great day!

LOAD520 – Day 9

I signed up for a Scrapbook & Cards Today class a couple of weeks ago. I said to myself, I know I've been lifting or "being inspired" by others lately. OMG! By the time I was done with this one, I was sick of lifting. The instructions were tedious, and so small. They were hard to follow. Now, I'm pretty good at following a picture, so it wasn't an issue, I barely used them. But, not having the product was difficult. It made me realize that my embellishments need to be sorted and … [Read more...]

Gearing up for LOAD519

I just love LOAD. It brings me so much joy. Last LOAD, I got sick, just about 2 weeks in. I did a LO for day 12, but, I didn't even post that day. I'm just a wimpy sick person. So, I asked for a LO again this LOAD, and I got day 12 again. I must be a day 12 kind of girl. I am so excited about the prompt. I'm not going to share it. I'll share it on Day 12. But, because I am so excited, I'm going to write my post. Actually, I'm going to post it on May 12 so I can tell you on the … [Read more...]

Mohawk time!

Sometimes I wonder about my boy.  He has stopped wanting baths, and wants showers.  No biggie.  It's just someone has to be in there with him.  Normally I let John take care of it, but this week, I did it.  When I wash his hair, I like to give him what I call a sudsy mohawk.  When we showered this time, he wanted to keep the mohawk after the shower was over.  This is what we ended up with.  I'm thinking he is ready for his own band...  What a guy! … [Read more...]
