I drank an energy drink that tasted like bottled Slytherin, that didn’t give me any energy and may have given me a headache, and then I ate dinner and now my stomach hurts and I haven’t cleaned anything. SMH
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else...– Ralph Waldo Emerson (via toteardown) Relevant.
I am a bullshit parent.
That is all.
My kids are doing something in the living room that involves a plastic golf club, a pingpong ball, and a Tonka dump truck… and Hannah crying. I think I should go into the kitchen and do the dishes.

And I have several unfinished projects going right now- and a messy house! I’M A LEFTY TOO!!!!! Or at least I was. Now I’m sort of somewhere in the middle. I write left handed still because it’s easiest,...

I think the only quilt I’ve made in the last year is a commissioned full sized one from baby blankets. I actually have its twin to make now. I want to quilt something forme. It just seems like over the past 3 years knitting has become my major forte over quilting,...
I stopped at Big Lots and bought Jeremiah a journal because his penmanship and spelling are atrocious. It’ll be a fun little summer project. I say fun because I’m the Mama AND the teacher and I make all the rules. My house smells delicious from chicken I cooked all day in the crockpot, but the rice I’ve been trying to cook in the juices from it for the last hour and a half is...
Is it sad that Home Depot and Lowes are becoming my favorite stores? (Except book stores, nothing will ever top them.) Itching to go wander around the Mayo garden center here too. I must needs acquire a night blooming jasmine plant. And apparently another green pepper plant.
My book is over. My tummy hurts. And my family is watching Marmaduke. WHY?!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
I just finished A Feast For Crows… The last chapter is a to be continued?! Luckily my library has an online catalog. I just reserved a Dance with Dragons—it was due back yesterday by whoever checked it out. Hopefully they bring it back soon. Hopefully I’m next on the list.

I just scrubbed all Hannah’s make up off her face and now she’s sitting around crying that she’s no longer beautiful. Teenage years are gonna be some kind of pleasant, lemme tell you.
We survived the dress rehearsal, despite driving around in a circle for half an hour because construction has all the nearby roads closed, and the building not being marked, and having to walk 1/2 mile to the building after parking in a parking garage I may or may not have needed a permit for. But I didn’t get a ticket (unlike another ballet Mom who got one for $32 for parking in the lot...

I feel like I’m gonna hurl. I woke up… unwell. Nauseous, weak. I feel feverish even though I’m not sure I’m actually running a fever. Gardening took every last bit of energy I had. I have to go buy Hannah purple, long lasting make ups, come home and dress her for the Good Shop Lollypop and do all her make up like a street walker. Then haul ass to the UT...
I’m proud of my little boy tonight. He had to be fitted for sparring gear at taekwondo in preparation for the belt testing he’s having next weekend, hopefully going from his yellow jrs belt to green. The sparring gear is presented to them with their new belt, in a huge Tiger-Rock Martial Arts International duffel bag. This afternoon we went to the desk and told the woman who works...
I made comfort food tonight. Stuffed shells. I used: 1 box of jump shell pasta, cooked and well rinsed in cold water so they didn’t stick together about 15 oz part skim ricotta cheese 1 small handful of shredded mozzarella cheese 1 small handful of shredded monteray jack cheese 4-5 chicken tenderloins, boiled and shredded about a half cup of cooked, drained and chopped frozen spinach ...
Mermaids y'all... →
stillticking: Sunday night I watched a speculative documentary on Animal Planet called ‘Mermaids:The Body Found’ and I think mermaids are real y’all. It is likely that they look more like this rather than this BUT….I think they’re down there and here’s why Half fish/half human creatures have been drawn and written about for AGES and practically every ancient civilization has some kind of...
I’m not going to be around much today because I’ve been trying my hardest to be positive and I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I just want to bitch about everything. I feel like someone beat me in my sleep. Hannah’s already crying about everything. I’m stressed I’ll forget some ballet related detail and mess up her stuff for her recital. Like for the...
AND DAMMIT I FORGOT TO LOOK FOR THE FENCING AT MOM’S THAT DAD SAID I COULD HAVE.
ronmanblog replied to your post: ronmanblog replied to your post: And my biggest… One of mine did this year too before I could put the cages around it. Didn’t break the vine. It has four tomatoes on it. It didn’t break, thankfully. I propped a it against a cage I’d set up for my green beans to climb. What I really want is a string trellis but I might just have to settle for...
ronmanblog replied to your post: And my biggest tomato plant, that now has TWO baby… Years ago the old timers didn’t stick or cage their tomato plants. I’ve grown them both ways. BUT IT TOTALLY FELL OVER!!! Whines… fix it… I even piled more soil up around it to better support it. Crap crap. Grumpy Des is grumpy and mother nature is fucking with my garden.
And my biggest tomato plant, that now has TWO baby tomatoes on it fell over today so tomorrow I get to figure out how to trellis it. Dammit, dammit. I should not put something off.
Is it antisocial of me to have a small wish that Tony’d take the kids to the pool and leave me to lay on the couch in the air conditioning with my knitting and The Return of the King? Yes, probably. Fine… I’ll go to the pool.
No Kentucky Splash for us today. We’re all still too puny. Think we’ll hit the local pool and swim a little while, then rent a movie on the way home and grill something. Don’t know what. We’ll throw something on the grill and have a lay on the couch day. So far we’ve laid on the couch through Let’s Make a Deal and the Prince is Right so I’m pretty sure...
Maybe I should drink two Emergen-Cs.
Mashed potatoes, done. Egg salad, done. Asparagus crescents, done. Jello brand pumpkin cheese cake, done. Drinking an Emergen-C. Can’t hurt. Shower, taken. Children, dressed with teeth brushed. To MIL, directions given. Waiting on roomie to wake up to see if he’s going with us and Tony to get ready. Gonna be a good day I think, but right this minute having a nap in the air...
Oh he loves me
Tony’s going to make the mashed potatoes for me. He makes better ones than I do anyway. So Diantha is peeling potatoes while Tony makes a gas station run to get me a Monster coffee and I’m gonna make egg salad. Those asparagus crescents turned out SO FREAKING CUTE! Hope they taste good!
So far, Memorial Day weekend can suck my balls.
I’m up, later than necessary with a lot less sleep than necessary. Working on making those asparagus and cheese crescent rolls to take to Mom’s later. Changing the recipe a little, even though I’ve never made it before. Instead of steaming the asparagus I rinsed and trimmed the ends off, then while they were still wet I laid them all out on a cookie sheet and sprinkled with a...
If today were tomorrow I could be watching Game of Thrones
bekaboo answered your question: I can’t remember how long I’ve been cooking these eggs. I would just rinse them in cold water. Better over than under done in my opinion. Yeah that’s kinda what I’m thinking too.

Is there such a thing as too long if there is still water in the pot?
