No Bugs for a Lady

Ladybugs. Tiny little creatures. One of the least threatening creatures that grace this earth, for sure. But I am really hating on the ladybugs right now. For several months, ladybugs have tried to take over our home. -They fly at you in the shower.  Three centimeters of non-biting, non-stinging creature isn’t threatening . . . […]

Feel the Frenzy

Alright . . .TGIF, it’s time for a weekly recap. 1.  Woke up to snow on Monday morning. It was quite a surprise, since the forecast the night before had mentioned nothing whatsoever about snow, and had indicated it would be much, much warmer.  I had to go out for my voice coach that day, […]

Of Choirs and Carpets

I am having a devil of a time deciding on carpet. I could bore you to tears . . . so, simply.  I have always lived on a beige carpet.  I have never really had much say in that matter. For Christmas, my big surprise was Knobby telling me we were going to carpet the […]

The Song Remains

This kid. You put out all these mats, all these blankets, all these cushy minky things for your child to play comfortably on . . . . . . and where does he insist on spending every waking moment? The hard, cold, fake wood floor. (And reworking his daddy’s soldering projects while he’s at it.) […]

Minion of Sandwich

We have to get this Disney review done. If for no other reason, that the pictures, which upload to the magical cloud, are so far down the “loading more” at this point that they’re just about to disappear into magical cloud oblivion. I was super-productive today, though, which also means “avoided Disney entry like the […]

Useless Door

So, we have this useless door in our house. From what I can tell, it was always a useless door. It opens to a dead end of the patio, and to get to it, you pass the kitchen door . . . so everyone uses the kitchen door. I never saw Mimi or Paw use […]

AntHill

This week, two things were on my calendar. One didn’t even require me leaving the house, but that was enough. Yesterday (Thursday) was a doctor’s appointment, which was just as much a waste of time as you’d imagine.  I started typing to you about all the ways and whys she is a useless runaround, but […]

Neverending House Projects

I am all over the place with house projects right now. Mimi’s bedroom has long been the storage space.  All the leftovers and things to catalogue have been sitting in there, and slowly the pile dwindled until it was pushed into JUST the closet (and it is just a little closet, since this house was […]

Vaporized Prunes

Low-key weekend. Knobby finished the soffit work in the kitchen . . . now I’m sanding down wood putty and getting it ready to paint.  Looking forward to putting the kitchen back in order. While his tools were so convenient, I was able to convince him to hang some hooks in the Laundry Room . […]

Doctors Appointment and Random Houses

I have this annoying sinus headache.  It’s more of an ache on my head than a headache. Take your tube of lipgloss, push it into the arch between your eyebrow and your nose, and that’s how it feels. Sinus pressure. Yay. —- Went to the pediatric urologist today . . . an appointment I’d been […]
