I love how Katie at The Perks does this Thoughts on Thursday every week. I am going to borrow this idea (imitation is the best flattery, right?)
BTW, I have followed Katie a while now and she is amazing. Beautiful, stylish, a new mommy to princess Sarah Sterling, a super cook, great wife to Mr. P (fisherman and grill master) and her blog always has fun recipes, cute fashion, adorable baby photos and so much more.
Yesterday was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Too much thrown at me the minute I got to work and I was done. Over it. Ready to go home. Unfortunately, these problems spilled over to my husband and he spent a very hot day cleaning freezer coils, dealing with electricians and meeting with people I was supposed to meet with also. I am a jerk but when I get in that mood, nobody needs to be around me.
It is that time of year. The gospel group comes in to town this weekend and the next 2 weeks and things go nuts. It is also band camp week next week so we lose the little one as a cook. Let us all pray.
The little one had camp this morning. He was out of sorts because his sacred water jug (that we have had for years and years) is on deaths door and he was almost out of deodorant. I kind of snapped at him this morning to "just grab some bottles out of the garage fridge and use dad's deo!" and I feel bad. I need to find a new jug bottle like his before he loses his mind. He likes things a certain way and if things change, he melts.
I found these cute plastic baskets at Target on Monday. I got a large one too.
Our internet service is terrible. We have had service people out numerous times and their answer is that where we live, it is going to be as good as it is. There are no other providers either so I am stuck with dragging online shows, slow loading and other annoyances. Considering we have the highest speed possible, I think they suck.
It is cloudy today. Still no rain but the temp has dropped a few degrees so it feels a bit better. I hate to say this but the heat is finally starting to get to me. Weeks and weeks of 100 degree days and months of zero rain gets old fast.
Our hummingbirds are going crazy like they did last year. I now have 3 feeders and still make food often.
I am also filling our seed feeders daily. I saw a big black bird standing in the baby pool cooling off (we fill it with a few inches daily) and the waterfall is a bird waterpark. They are messing up my husband's floating pond plants so he put a long broom handle across the pond so they can land on it to get a drink (no more bird drownings please) I think they land on the lily pads to drink.
I have got to spend the last few nights on the phone with my sister D catching up and venting about our lives. It is nice to have someone to talk to besides the kids and my husband. We are really looking forward to a few days away next month. I don't get out with friends much because once I settle in, I don't leave. I did accept a dinner invitation with my sister in law tonight.
