Monday…how you terrorize me with your Mondayness.
I got to see my granddaughter twice this week. It was great.
The first time she and her mom brought me my mother’s day gift and some cards. As I was on the floor with her, opening my cards she looked down at my ankle tattoo and said “wassat” and I said “I don’t know, what is it” she backed away horrified and said “iz uh bug”.
Then yesterday the boy’s entire family stopped by for a little bit.
As you know, I don’t dust often. Seriously. I don’t. And as you can see by the evidence below I really don’t.
So I gave my duster to her and she dusted for me, and rearranged all the pictures. I think I’ll leave it like this for a couple days.
I don’t remember much about the rest of the week, because Superman came home after his eye doctor appointment to tell me that he has age related macular degeneration and glaucoma. I can’t seem to think about anything else.
Not much of significance has happened in the last week.
Junior works at a company that ships food to grocery stores. This last week, he brought home 15 pounds of strawberries. The cost??? $3.
So I made freezer jam.
Also since Junior has moved in, we have had to scrunch up our shampoo/conditioner/scrubbie/razors/shower gel/ stuff to make room for his. The girl and I use the same type of razor. So right after he moved in I grabbed a razor to shave the pits. I was busy doing my business, went to rinse the razor and it still had the protective plastic thing over it. Really?!? Who keeps the plastic protector thingie on their razors after it has been used??? And who doesn’t notice that their pits aren’t being shaved???
Oh…and we have had to rearrange the parking situation so he can park his truck in front of the house….I miss my spot.
Hello Internets! It is Monday…again.
* The girl has a new fellow employee at Stuffmart. His name is Trampus. Yes. Trampus. Who in their right mind would burden their child with such a name. Poor kid.
* The other day I was picking up the girl from work and I told her I was so hungry I could eat her arm. She replied “oh no…it is a zombie amomolypse.
* I have rented out the boy’s bedroom to Jr. He is a good friend of the family. It is great to have a young man in the house again.
* I have begun to stop watching the news. The government angers me so much. harumph
* I need to go to the grocery today. What is the thing you run out of the quickest after grocery shopping?
Anyone who knows me, knows that while I don’t dust very often (why bother, it just gets dusty 3 seconds later) but I do not like clutter. I’ve always been “a place for everything, and everything in its place”
This past couple of weeks I’ve been working on a way out of a funk. I have been super Mrs. funk funk funkerson.
Last night I tweeted.
Me: We have GOT to clean the kitchen
Daughter: Why? is someone coming over?
It is time to clean!
○ Monday, you are here to haunt me again….but also you are April 15 which haunts me all the more. Government….blech…
○ Last Thursday was Superman and my 21st wedding anniversary. He texted me Happy Anniversary. :/
○ Being the 15th of April, I must take the city taxes to the city tax office to turn them in. Normally I would mail them, however, the girl hasn’t done her’s yet, so we are going to go get her a form and do them right there in the office so she doesn’t get in trouble.
○ I made our reservations for vacation here. I am sooooooooo doing the wild horse tour. Because me and horses? We are best buds!
♦ Earlier this week something happened and I thought to myself, this is great Random Monday material. I told myself to write it down so I wouldn’t forget. Wadda know…I didn’t write it down and I can’t remember it.
♦ What a glorious weekend we had! Loverly weather, time spent with friends and family. Wonderful. However, the weather just isn’t making much sense. Friday it was cold and blustery, Sunday it was sunny and 70º. My wardrobe doesn’t swing that way. I can not go from long sleeves, sweaters and heavy jeans to shorts and a tank top overnight. I will blind people with my pasty whiteness the second I step out my front door.
♦ I have reserved a room in Corolla, NC for Superman and I to take our very first vacation…without children. It isn’t till the end of September, but I’m still excited.
♦ One day this last week also found me without any breakfast items. No milk, bread, eggs. So what does one eat with no breakfast items to be had??? Leftover hamburger helper. Doesn’t everyone?
♦ JoAnn from the famous JoAnnfabric dot com finally sent me my fabric…that I ordered on February 3. I love the fabric, I can not begin to tell you what I feel for JoAnn.
♦ Well, if wonders never cease. I remember what I was going to talk about from earlier this week. Long story short, I have called the dog warden a couple times on our neighbors. I have filled out statements, taken pictures, in the hopes that they will just keep their dogs on a leash and/or keep them out. of. my. yard! Alas, the dog warden has seen fit to take all info to the prosecuting attorney and they will be served either today or tomorrow. I will be spending the rest of my life in a darkened house with locked doors so the neighbors don’t find out I’m home and come over to “discuss” the matter at hand.
♦ The girl fiiiiinallllly got herself the extended edition of The Lord of the Rings. Now she can quit yammering at me when we watch my measly regular edition that “the extended edition is sooooooooo much better mom!” We are having a LOTR marathon today.
♥ April Fools Day WOULD fall on a Monday, wouldn’t it. Oh the irony.
♥ I finished up the baby quilt I’m making for my friends daughter. Her baby shower is Saturday. I was cutting it close. Now I just need to wrap it. Saturday morning will find me with paper, scissors and tape in hand. Procrastination is my best friend. Sometimes.
♥ Speaking of quilts. I ordered some fabric from JoAnn fabric on Feb. 9. I’m going to be making Jax a quilt for her birthday. I ordered it in plenty of time to make said quilt, seeing as how her birthday is THURSDAY. Guess who has yet to see material on her door step from the UPS man??? CC is NOT a happy camper.
JoAnn and I are going to have a chat today. I don’t think JoAnn will appreciate me after I’m done.
♥ The Federal govt. and the State govt. have dug their paws into my check book to the tune of $1,900. Anyone need a kidney before April 15?? I have an extra one.
♥ Lastly, I tried some MAC pigments. You can purchase samples here. They are very inexpensive. The only way I could try them out.
