Trucking along

23 Apr

Still borrowing/using my husbands computer. I still have no computer of my own per se but, hope to change that sometime in June.

Yesterday my husband was mowing our lawn. It was a bit high and thick the grass. He notices something jump and thinks it is a frog in our yard. So he keeps going and then it jumps again this time he notices that it is a bit more fluffy and fuzzy than a frog. It was a young rabbit that decided to squeeze itself into a very tiny space in between our front steps. He then wakes me up saying that it is rather cold outside and that the rabbits ears are cold. I told him to leave it alone that mom would be back for it. A lot of wild animals do not need our “help” instead they just need some time to relax and stay under cover. They might only need our help if injured. Our little friend went on his merry way sometime last night. No worries. Our little friend was just hanging out I think and believe until mom got back to let him/her know it was ok to move, go home or go to this great place that has a great salad bar lol. I was shocked since my husband is allergic to rabbits and he was being really sweet and nice. I am still trying to figure out who this person is. He has not been a huge fan of Noel but, has lived/dealt with it for me and our daughter.

I finally so far finished making the stuff for my business. I made the lotion bars. They smell great and absorb into your skin really well. I also made the chocolate lip balm. This is the BEST lip balm that I have ever used. I know I might seem slightly prejudice since I did make this but, I have tried a lot of lip balms out there and this is the best one. I love how my lips feel. I hope to post pictures at some point of my different products. Next on the list is some regular soap and then if I can some baby soap/shampoo for kids/babies if I get enough people wanting it.

I took a picture of my two cats in close proximity to each other. It was surprising since usually when they are close to each other there is usually chasing and hissing.

I read the book The life changing magic of tidying up by Marie Kondo. I love and have been deciding on what I love and want to keep in my life. Life is too short to keep things you do not love in your life. I have managed to get rid of at least one box of stuff with more to go along with a lot of clothes mainly of my daughters and a few things from my husband. I have been tidying off and on for awhile so we will see what happens and how much more I get rid of.

Have a good week.

Alas my poor computer

14 Apr

My computer hard drive decided that it was time to say good bye so I no longer have a computer that is “mine” to use. I am currently using my husbands chrome book. I hate it because I do not like people knowing what sites I choose to visit or not.

Plus last week my daughter came down with bronchitis and two ear infections. Poor kid. Then my allergies decided to go haywire and I started coughing (thinking it was part of my allergies) I have bronchitis as well. I am feeling much better and not coughing so much that I either feel like I will be puking my guts out or donating a lung to science. I was coughing so hard. It really stank. I was also running a rather high fever so knew I was in trouble.

I had taken pictures of my beautiful tulips with my phone but, since my computer decided to die I have no real way of posting my pictures. Sorry folks that will have to wait for a bit.

Spring has finally sprung

8 Apr

Spring is here. Yeah and boo. Yeah because that means warmer days without having to wear a parka out or having anymore snow. Boo because I am currently sick. I have the worst allergies and sinus infection going on. So I have been coughing up yuck and blowing my nose constantly it seems. I had to cancel my dental appointment so not sure when I will be rescheduling that since I am so miserable and running a fever.

Last week my daughter was on spring break and was ill the whole time poor kid. Her birthday was also during this time. She had a not so great birthday due to being ill. She did get a lot of cool stuff from the grandparents. More clothes than I know what to do with. She also got a couple of Monster High dolls and then I took her to Kmart to choose a doll that she wanted and we found a Monster High backpack/purse for her as well. She also got a few other things from us as well.

Of course my car decides to be an issue for me as well last week. I got stuck with getting the Serpentine belt changed and of course my husband does not tell me that there are two. I also had to wait an extra day for parts to come in. Then while getting the belts changed one of the belts is old so that has to be swapped out. GRRRRRR all while my daughter is not feeling great.

Thursday while we are having more rain than strictly necessary we normally for the whole month of April get a little over 3 inches we got over 5 inches in two days. I wanted the car Thursday to run errands and just goof off with our daughter. After dropping my husband off for work the car makes a clunk sound and being surrounded by other cars I was not sure if it was ours or not then it starts to smoke a lot(thankfully it was raining). So I call my husband to see what he wants me to do he says to take it to a repair shop that I was not too far from. It turns out that the coolant cap had come undone on the car somehow. More time waiting in a repair shop and being bored out of our minds. Of course I call my mom who is most annoyed that we are getting together Thursday instead of Friday since it interrupts her schedule. Oh well, what can I do?

Hope your week is full of less drama.
