I’ve complained often about the number of friends my youngest has over. Lately we’ve managed to trim the number down, but once his crowd hit legal drinking age, making sure they’re safe takes precedence over my need for peace and quiet. The other difference is girls have started to join the group. None of them have earned a long-term place in my son’s inner circle yet, they enter his orbit for a weekend or two and then I never see them again. Last night, when two new ones showed up I sent my son a text. I wanted to know if they had transportation home before pouring myself a drink.
It is not my fault the e is right next to the w on a keyboard.
On Sunday I learned that my dog is capable of holding it when I forget to bring a poop bag along on a walk.
Monday was blog housekeeping. Starting with my oldest posts – the ones transferred from My Half Assed Life – I’ve repaired or deleted links and added graphics to the ones that don’t have any photos. There are still a discouraging number of posts to go through.
Tuesday was a double-header. An inaugural post for a new weekly series I’ve started called Tuesday Tips. I feel as if I’m being egotistical offering advice when I know so little, but I remember all of my beginner frustrations and how hard it was to fit the pieces together. With so many mistakes along the way, maybe I can save someone else the trouble of making the same ones.
I also wrote of how excited I am about resuming ladies game night with my girlfriends for Two Shoes Tuesday, a new Link Up for me. While Yeah Write will always be my favorite, something different is nice too.
And I created a Pinterest account which you can find here.
Wednesday I ranted about Telephone Scammers. Then as the day unfolded, Canada mourned for a fallen soldier along with our loss of innocence. Those events will be in everyone’s thoughts for some time to come.
Thursday I wrote of my developing fascination with Steampunk after purchasing a new purse.
Friday I finally got my hair cut. Since it was actually styled instead of my usual wash and wear, I spent a half hour taking selfies while praying I wouldn’t get caught at it by my son and his buddies. I updated my profile with the best of the bunch, which inspired me to use canva and create consistent headers for all of my social media accounts. I don’t have any followers yet, but I’m ready when they come.
Then I wrote about how much more normal I feel now that I have a new bag for the Moonshine Grid which you should really check out.
Today I woke up early to meet my son at work so I could babysit my four-legged grandson. I even got paid for babysitting when Asshat #1 cut my lawn for the fourth time in his entire life. I don’t even care that he did it because he wanted to borrow the mower, I’m too happy that it’s done. With the lawn out of the way, I can spend some time drooling over other people’s gardens on Pinterest.
