Sorry for the cryptic blog yesterday -- I have friends and family members who worry if I don't post daily, so I needed to post something! It wasn't a tragic day or anything, just completely unplanned and chaotic (two things I don't deal with well -- I'm totally into schedules and routines).
It began with the entire house waking up early, so I didn't get my usual hour or two to slowly awaken, enjoy the peace and quiet and a cup of coffee, but was thrust into instant activity. But... that was okay: DH was going boating and DD wanted to go (despite still being a bit snuffly). He'd switched days for helping his dad from Sunday to Saturday because of the weather.
So, we started getting things ready: packing the beach bags, making lunch, getting the boat out... and then DH said, "It's awfully overcast." and checked the weather. Rain expected by the afternoon.
So, okay, boating is out. The DD got a nosebleed and DH spent the a.m. cranky cuz no boating for the weekend (and he wasn't happy with the weather folks who had predicted a yucky day Saturday--which turned out gorgeous--and a gorgeous day Sunday--which turned out yucky). Finally DH decided to go up to his uncle's place (that he caretakes) and mow and study for another certification test, and didn't want to take DD, which was okay, because the nosebleeds didn't want to stop coming and now she was afraid to blow her snuffly nose and was a mess.
He finally left, DD stayed home (miserable) and the weather was overcast (a general call out for the bugs to be out) and the dog was antsy. I didn't go to the Romance in the Backseat interview (darn it) -- Terry had thoughtfully told me DD could come along, but I just didn't feel right dragging her around when she felt gross and it was just as well, since the nosebleeds were frequent and messy (causing a change of clothes no less than three times).
It's Monday. Routine returns (sort of... DD is done with school, so we'll have to work around that), the sun is shining, and -- except for the fact the deer ate not just my hosta, but the tops of my snapdragons and liatris... yes, the tops... yanno, the part that BLOOMS -- all is well with my world.
How was your weekend?
You Are A Spaceship
You're so weird that you're practically out of this world.
You are a total dreamer. You are obsessed with conquering the impossible.
You are wild and adventurous. You love thrills of all sorts.
You are a true sensation seeker. You are always looking for that next high.
Okay... a weird dreamer? Sure. But the rest? Wild? Adventurous? Thrill seeker? Um... not so much.
