Life In the Nuthouse

If you have a job without any aggravations, you don't have a job. ~Malcolm S. Forbes

Life is crazy. Right?

I don't even know where to start, though I am hoping that my life will be a little less nuts soon. Right now, I'm still playing 'catch up' on all my work due to my internet outage (FOUR days without!) and the craziness of getting my mom out here and settled.

I've visited a total of ONE blog in the past week or so (waves at Brandy) and my Google Reader totals are downright scary. I'm not sure if I'm going to try to visit them all, or just empty it and start from scratch.

My gardens are full of weeds (and cucumbers ... I'm going to have a bumper crop of cucumbers, though my tomatoes are doing poorly), my house is a disaster area and I'm alternately tearing my hair out or bursting into tears.

However, I think things are slowly getting better.

We're disappointed that we have had NO black swallowtail caterpillars this year -- first time EVER. And we have yet to find any Monarch eggs (we went searching again yesterday at the library with no results). DD is so sad.

Oddly, I expected life to settle a bit once school was out, but clearly that was an erroneous assumption (which always makes me think of the line in "The Long Kiss Goodnight" when Samuel L. Jackson's character says, "You know what happens when you make an assumption -- you make an ass out of you and umption." which cracks me up every time).

With any luck, I'll get mostly caught up on stuff this weekend (assuming my internet actually stays up) and on Monday will be myself again.

For now... that is all from my neck of the woods. Gotta get to work! But when I don't post, I am berated by various people, so ... I'm posting! I'm posting!



You Are Social

You are very group oriented. You believe other people make things more fun.

You are altruistic and unselfish. If you were rich, you would be a full time philanthropist.

You are assertive when it comes to getting your way. You put your own needs first.

You tend to be a leader, both at work and at play. People gladly follow you.

About 50/50...

I'm sorry life is so nutty now. I hope it calms down soon!

Did they ever say why you had no Internet connection or was that due to the weather?

I'm bummed we won't have Pillar Place 2011.

You Are Independent

You focus on fantasy more than reality. You have your head in the clouds.

You are a complex and deep person. There are many layers to who you are.

You are caring and deep, but it may be difficult for you to show this side of yourself. You don't always express your emotions.

You are an island. You don't need anyone else to make you happy, and you are very self sufficient.

Except for the first part, it's mostly accurate.

Hope things calm down for you.

Have a good Thursday.

*waves back* Glad to know that despite being so busy you can poke your head up to let us know you're okay! I hope you're able to catch up soon and can take time to enjoy yourself.
That is sad about no Pillar Place this year. I wonder if the harsh winter coupled with the crazy heat this summer has anything to do with it?

My tomatoes aren't doing well this summer, either.

I hope your day goes well!

At least you have good reasons for not being around! I just can't see to manage my time. :)

Maria Zannini said...

Please note, I have been good and not berated you.

Hope life calms down soon.

I'm sorry you've been off line. I've been having computer issues and went two days without a mac. Not fun. So this weekend is my catchup time.

Good luck with all you need to do! Hope you can find some quiet and relaxing time, too.
