One of my great goals with this move is to not bring along anything that isn't either fully utilitarian, or fitting with my vision of the new house. With my upcoming garage sale I am hoping to get rid of things that don't fit those two criteria. I walk around the house wondering...hmm...should I just re-paint that dresser or sell it? Alas. This is what my life has been reduced to. Boring as crap to others, I gather. And that is why I'm not going to bother you with this banter.
As I was digging through one of the girls rooms yesterday I looked over at the Guinea Pig cage. (Remember, I don't own the pig. I'm pig-sitting. Yep, still!) The pig (who is named Niki, but who I call Lloyd) was looking at me with that very depressed and woe is me look. So, of course, I took her out and put her on a table as I cleaned. Lloyd never moves around. Just sits there, like a stone, without blinking. What a pet!
Truth be known, I'm really annoyed I have to take care of this silly little rodent when I'm so busy with trying to move. But, on the other hand, I really think I've fallen in love her and I'm not sure I can give her back to her owner. I really dont need this additional mix of emotions on top of everything else right now. Damn it, man! And I'm so sorry to only be able to provide a picture of Lloyd today. Do you think I have time to go around snapping wonderful pictures right now? Between providing entertainment for Lloyd and packing I'm slammed, man.
Beyond all that, I have all but given up trying to feed my kids in a healthy way during the midst of these busy weeks. Are ice cream and pizza healthy? Cool. I don't give a s***.
And I've totally fallen off the "NO PAPER TOWELS EVER AGAIN!" wagon. The mold in the upstairs window sill really pushed me to my limit and I broke down and ran for the emergency roll. I kissed it, hugged it, and thanked the trees for giving their life for my nasty moldy window sill. By the way...the mold I speak of? Actually not mine, but...IN BRAD'S OFFICE! I would never, never, never, never have mold in the communal living space windows! How gross is that? There is also a enough mold in his upstairs sink to make penicillin for most of the human population. What the ****? This will never happen in the new home. NEVER. Do you hear me Brad? NEVER!!!!!!!!! I am taking control of your office in the new home and you bet your butt it will be aesthetically pleasing and sparkling clean AT ALL TIMES!
Anyway, I just wanted to check in. I'm off to pack another box.
