Life throws a lot of curve balls and I’m striking out. I can’t even go into it all, but let’s just say in the middle of trying to have a normal life (birthday’s, school, Fall preparations) we’ve added custody investigator meeting, juvenile criminal court, lost jobs, new jobs (maybe), expulsion from school (third or fourth time…losing count…one hand has him banned and the other hand has him enrolled and attending classes), custody court hearing, IEP meeting for the expelled child, throwing up (not me), headaches (again not me), physical ailments (me), medical bill drama, new scary creepy stuff that I need to see the police about….the list goes on and on. Honestly, I’m tired. I just want to sew Halloween costumes and have a simple life. Not going to happen.
Saturday night the hubby went to the hospital with a friend who was ill. Ended with no news which was good news. In the meantime I made some comfort food (fried chicken, gravy, fill-your-belly stuff) and ate alone feeling sorry for myself. I don’t do the Pity Party often, but allowed myself a couple hours.
Sunday we worked all day moving things, hauling to the dump, clearing this area and it wasn’t very fun. And we aren’t done, but close. Doesn’t look like much, but inside the White Thing were van seats, insulation and Styrofoam all that needed to be moved. Plus the car with the lost key that we drag with the loader. Jeez, why is everything so difficult?
Stuff. Always stuff to deal with.
Crappy photo, but see the trash pile forming?
Took some time to cut down about eight trees as well. We got Homer satellite for his birthday so he could watch Monday Night Football. There were trees that had to be removed. Now a pipe has to go in. Then maybe it will finally be installed.
Yes, we had to stop traffic because we dropped a tree on the road and then I had to sweep up branches. And the child who promised he would saw up the logs has been gone for days so now I’ll have to hire the neighbor because my husband works to much to do it all.
I took another photo of my too cool compost bins. I love them. Looks so neat and tidy. I got the entire chicken pen raked and shoveled over the fence into the bins. Now I need to shovel out the coop one last time before winter. Oh, and we got a new rooster. Little banty.
Totally cool rug Emily got for her birthday. Nice since she has plain brown carpet (it was bought when it was supposed to be a boys room….when she changes rooms she’ll get better carpet).
Homer brought her home a 37” television and the boys got her a dvd player (that lasted two days and now I have to return it because, clearly, I don’t have enough to do). Can you say
And this is me this morning. My life has been thrown into piles since the accident in July. (This isn’t even close to being all of it). I’m sorting piles to file, pay, deal with even though I don’t want to. I need an office. Maybe when the snow flies which should be soon. It snowed in Tok (200 miles East where I grew up) Saturday, clouded up here last night so I bet it snows tomorrow. That’s my guess anyhow. No. The yard isn’t ready, but I have lawsuits to file, police to talk to, school’s to deal with, doctors to call so I’d better get back to this paperwork.
Please, tell me you are enjoying life. Someone has to be.
