And then we looked in the ceiling
of the basement, which is the floor of the bathroom, and discovered the drain pipe from the sink wasn’t GLUED TOGETHER! And then I burst into tears. Plumbing still not working right. Bathroom still not done. PMSing like crazy. Kids picking up on my emotional distress and being awful. Plumbing not hooked up. Serious crying ensued. Overwhelmed. I told Tony we need $1000 dollars and then a...
We’ve had a bad day all around. Time for me and my kids to snuggle on the couch with some peanut butter M&M’s, popcorn, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and knitting. Relaxation: Go!
hemigrrrl replied to your post: hemigrrrl replied to your post: Taken Asparagus is… This article may help: motherearthnews.com/org… AAAAAHHHH!!! I PLANTED POTATOES 2 DAYS AGO! That was the root veggie planting day! This article says to plant the asparagus crowns at the same time.
My day continues
Rented an auger to the tune of a $125 deposit. Bought super mega ultra psycho drain cleaner and a new wax ring in case Tony has to take the toilet off the floor. Again. Got home, toilet flushes fine. Sigh. Walking on egg shells. Going to try to do the last few dishes in a little bit, running the water as little as possible and see if it backs up again. Kids were miserable all day. Ignoring...
Grouch, Gripe and yell
I have *the* shortest fuse all of the sudden. It began yesterday. I felt like a crack head tearing through my kitchen last night looking for chocolate. I found none. : ( I bought a bunch today at the store. Mom always says, “Take magnesium before your period, that’s why you crave chocolate and have such a short fuse and are so sensitive to noise.” Well magnesium can...
My Knitpicks order came & while I’m happy, I have a complaint. A huge cardboard box for ONE 110yd skein of sport weight yarn? This skein of yarn is tiny. One could probably fit 15 of them in the box the mailed one in. I’ve ordered from them about 5 times now, and I always get my yarn in the same sized box, no matter what I order (I’ve never ordered more than like 6 skeins...
hemigrrrl replied to your post: Taken Asparagus is grown from ‘crowns’. There are 1-,2- and 3-yr that you can get. Don’t harvest too many shoots from the 1 or 2s. Oh. I am the Sith Lord of Gardening. Welcome to the Darkside. CROWNS! AHA! You’re my new best friend. I knew it wasn’t sets or bulbs, and you have to admit, pods had a nice Star-Wars-y ring to it. Anywho. I found a 5...
Thinking of listing a few skeins of my handspun yarn (all spun on a drop spindle by me) in my etsy shop tomorrow. Only thing is my etsy shop is for my bags and quilts. Will adding a yarn catagory by too ADD?
3 old tires. 1 more left over there I didn’t get yet. I ran out of potting soil, of course. I figure it’ll take at least 3 large bags to fill all 3 tires so I’m looking at $21 for “free” planters. Hm… may go rake grass clippings to use as compost to fill the bottom half of the tires and that way I’ll only need 1/2 the potting soil. I stopped by Lowes...
to steal the tires from next to the abandoned house next door. Is it stealing? The house was abandoned almost 2 years ago and is in foreclosure. Wouldn’t it be helping out the bank who owns it by giving them less mess to have hauled off? Is this a gray area? I want to spray them out with the hose and plant asparagus in them. Never mind that I don’t have any asparagus bulbs. I...
Aside from my painting the bathroom yesterday we haven’t worked a single minute on it since Monday. They’ve been wearing Tony out at work since he got back and he just doesn’t have the energy. Because parts of our house are uprooted and messy it seems like the rest of the house is gravitating toward piles. It’s making me emotionally twitchy and edgy. I need my clean...
I’m 200 pages into a Storm of Swords and all I can think is that I want Brienne of Tarth of end up with Jaime Lannister because I think she would settle his ass down and he would liven her up and for that to come about someone would have to mount Cersei’s head on a spike.
I could quite happily
eat pancakes with peanut butter and maple syrup on them every day. Of course I’d weigh 500lbs and have diabetes so I don’t… But I could.
I might cry.
EIGHT of the tiles that Mom and I set on the floor in the bathroom on Monday came up. It took us from 3 to 10pm without any breaks, and 8 random tiles came up. It’s weird too ‘cause they weren’t all from the same batch of thinset, nor were they ones we’d had to add a little more too to help them set right. Bizarre. But I love the pale gray I painted the walls (what...
A better system
I’ve got to get my hands on an almanac calendar. The co-op here was out of them and my expert gardener get my garden in the paper every year neighbor said a local funeral had them, for free. I stopped by the funeral home and the only “person” there was a gray haired lady laid out for a viewing. Anyway I need one because there’s got to be a better system than said...
I want Tony to hook our Wii back up.
Because I have 2 hours left to be home today and I want to spend both of them trying to get unstuck in Zelda. But I’ll probably just go do dishes instead. Bah.
