I have far too much to do.
but I don't want to!!
Story of my life. but mostly it is the repetitiveness of redoing the same crap. I JUST packed that, I JUST did laundry ,I JUST cleaned that room ! I don't know how many times I can repeat the same action sanely.
Any way.An update on the situation.
I effing hate packing. and I am too stressed.
(the 20th) we were getting ready to go out with Val& fam for a Fathers Day dinner-
Rory and I have the oddest sleep lately, and napped through when we should have been getting ready,
Ri took too long to get home and they showed up before we were completely ready...
leaving me to forget my camera, almost too stressed to want to leave the house.
So. I didn't get any pics or the cake they surprised me with! We had a really amazingly nice dinner- and a fun ride in the Vimo ,Rory sang music from Annie to Seth and talked all about the new house.
.... and got to chat a bit with Tom about this house.
He knows a bit about the housing market and said he could give us advice. Ri has consulted everyone he could think of about what to do with this house.
I don't like most of it. It has been far too stressful. Ri has been way too hard to deal with it over it. Months ago, I told him "I gave up, We have to be out of this craphole before Rory starts school.Handle it."...and for his part he IS getting us out - but I haven't held up my give up side of it .give up. Let him handle it because I cannot deal with the stress.
Instead, I stress.
I blew out the candles on my cake with only one wish.
That horrible 3 syllable F word would never come to pass ,to the house, in our name.
Somewhere. somehow I think someone/thing might have heard that wish. Ri woke me on my birthday the next day to tell me we might have found someone to buy the house. Maybe. I am afraid to even count on it.Ever so hopeful though.
Enough about that.
So instead- Here is a massive picture post. I can do that. Technically it is my birthday blog post, So I can do whatever I want.
And you will scroll over every picture and leave a comment about their awesomeness...
because I said so.
Because the 21st was my birthday, and even though it is the 25th I still have divine rule on this blog , for this moment.
(Give me that much.ok.)
Lissy and Steph came and picked me and Rory up to go to Mom's and hang out.
And Wish Dad a Happy Father's Day as well.
I love my Dad
Nico calls Mom&Dad's house uncleJJ's house... and pretty much visits to visit JJ
We ate lots of junk. Chatted about junk and stuff..and Lissy and Amy's upcoming weddings.
Took the kids out to play.
When we had pulled up we couldn't believe how overgrown with wildflowers the yard was!
I had to google the name of the white flowers.
Can you spot Rory?
I love these pictures soooo much
darn. I missed the power line in that picture.
I love these pictures
there is something so dreamy about the out of focus kids behind the tiny in focus flowers
here they are IN focus:
............................................uh-oh. Nico spotted my camera!
I love that lil ham
I love these pictures sooo much I finally went and slapped together a new blog post on my Fairytale blog.
called I remember being small <---------------Click it,it is short and cute. Besides these pictures are awesome to me. One more...
Well. Just in case your heart is icey.
I still have heartmelty pictures up my sleeve.Amy came over to celebrate with my niece Allura
She has Soo many expressions
How can you not giggle at this picture!!
And then- Wes came in with his fuzzy beard and she was all :
Mommy got me a great cake!
If cheesecake birthday cake isn't awesome enough- try
Allura's reaction to her 1st taste of cheesecake
...the ONLY thing more awesome than THAT
was when mom would eat pieces of the graham cracker crust- and Allura was completely offended
We were laughing SOO hard. That baby could no believe Eggy(thats what she calls Grammy) would dare eat part of her cheesecake.
Oh- check This crap out
we went to st.auggy with Ri's stepbro to start painting and cleaning
Of coarse the water was turned off, So all my plans to clean sort of fell through.
I mostly played with Rory while they painted.
We managed to talk Ri into leaving the kitchen yellow. Rory decided she wants her room blue too- So they got a sandy color to go over the drab gray walls, and a blue color to go over the white- bedrooms and dining room.
Rory does want some purple flower wall art in her room though.
Rory and I did help paint a little
I let her borrow my camera
yes.she takes better pictures than I do.
At one point I ended up falling asleep on the musty carpet . I have been sooo overtired. I spent too much time the past few month not sleeping it is catching up the past few days.
Ri and Carl got the 1st coat of beachSandy tan color on the living room and bathroom- it looks 100 times better. We had plans to go back tomorrow to do a 2nd coat and the blue.
but I am thinking I will stay home and clean here more. This house is a disaster area
.I don't feel I was terribly helpful with .Lissy was talking about going out for a bacholorette type party - but brokeness is a factor.
Well.. I have a severe case of coffee jitters and way too much to do to sit here any longer.
PEACE AND TOFU CHICKEN GREASE,
