An Interesting Week

I honestly wonder when I will have a week that isn't like a three ring circus. I probably wouldn't know what to do with myself. Yesterday, the schools were on an early dismissal. Don't ask me why...I still haven't figured it out. But, I also had to be home for two service calls and also be ready to pick up Sissy by 1P. Buddy was having some issues with his laptop, which is still under warranty (Thank Ghandi), so I had to wait on the tech person to come by to fix it and then, I had to wait on someone to swing by and look at a home repair job that is out of the Evil Twin's or my skill set. By the time I met with both parties, I didn't have time for a shower before I needed to pick Sissy up from school. I was already exhausted from Tuesday (Sissy's dance makes me INSANE), so I wasn't really of a mood to deal with much else the next day (Wednesday). Today, I'm finding it most difficult to rustle up any motivation whatsoever. Don't get me wrong....I have a good life. I just get overwhelmed when too many activities seem to stack up and often overlap each other. Sometimes in life, you just have to suck it up and deal with it - and I do, but that doesn't mean I have to necessarily LIKE it. I keep on keeping on. Even if being in bed with the covers over my head sounds much more appealing. LOL. After all, the world might stop spinning on its' axis if I just threw my hands up and went to live in a treehouse out back. Sure, it sounds appealing, but I like indoor plumbing and hot showers (with mega water pressure - I don't enjoy taking a shower that feels like the water gods are merely just spitting on me). I'm just slightly spoiled to "Happy Shower Time". My exasperated parents sent me to Summer camp many years in a row and then I also lived in the Marshall University dorm for a year, so I know a shitty shower when I find one. The Evil Twin removes all the "low flow" valves from our water sources. If we're paying the bill, then we want a good amount of water. A pox on whoever came up with the low flow shower heads and made it mandatory. I fart in their general direction!! Welp, that being said, I'm headed off to my good shower time. I hope my hooligans are having a great Thursday! Love,


  1. I hate hectic days/weeks. I plan to sit on my butt this Saturday, and watch television for HOURS. I may sweep the floor, but that is ALL.

    hugs and love to you!

  2. Nothing like a nice high powered shower to make things all good.

  3. We pull the flow regulators out too. Stupid idea.

    My Dad is hanging on to 30 year-old toilets in their house because he refuses to buy low flow toilets. He just keeps replacing parts with things like old license plates and wire coat hangers.

    Hope your weekend is better than your week!

  4. I'm with y'all on the shower flow things. We just put in a new shower head (the kind that has a hose and massage settings) and removed that ridiculous low-flow thing. Why the heck would someone pay $50 or more for a shower head only to have a few droplets coming out?

    Don't even get me started on low-flow toilets. How is something considered low-flow if you have to flush several times for it to achieve the desired result?
