What the?!

So I didn’t post last night- which is weird because my husband and I had this great long discussion about Bipolar symptoms, which I was sure I shared with you – so here I go again- for real.

I’m currently having what I call ‘solar withdrawal’ – since the earth’s tilt is taking my source of power from me. It’s not a full on depression but more of a loss of willpower. I have no motivation, can’t concentrate and I am beginning to sleep more. 

Now we can add forgetfulness.

Friday the 13th

Two strange things happened today, one involved my water tank for my animals – which we had cleaned last week and again two days ago – it was full of bugs! More than one kind! Had to spend two hours with bleaching the tank clean to make sure all larvae was killed. The second weird thing – we can’t find my husband’s glasses- that are always on/or next to the bed (he only wears them at night) – searched all around/under and in the bedroom but they can’t be found. Strange.


When every we watch movies for the first time that our children have seen, we can’t get through it without their remarks. So we end up missing something or finding out before we should. 

My oldest is behind on Game of Thrones so we have been watching the episodes with her and taking the time to hint about upcoming events. This is so much fun!


Our chickens have been running amok for awhile now and our Easter egg hunts have been fruitless so we locked them up in their coop last night. They were very pouty today since they couldn’t have free run of the neighborhood and when we checked later in the day to see if we had any eggs we discovered they had mutiny once again by eating their own eggs.

Dirk’s response to that, “Meats back on the menu boys!”

Rock my world

My senses are starting to recover- only to be asulted by the hazards of Mother Nature. As the Eastern states drown, we the Western States – choke on smoke.  My bronchitis is making it hard to do anything productive- like breathe, stay awake or stand – oh wait – that might be the earthquakes!

Saturday as we were preparing for the onslaught of bargain hunters we discovered that our main water line was leaking, bubbling up trouble. So not only did we have hordes of people but a backhoe in our yard! By the end of the day things had settled down and we had got a handle on the water – I was laying on my stomach in the grass next to the hole talking with Dirk as he finished up when I began to do the worm involuntary.

It wasn’t till the next day that it was verified that the epicenter was about 100 miles away and the quake was a 5.3 on the rector scale. Since Saturday they have had over 100 aftershocks ranging up to 3.4.

I remembered 

It wasn’t right off that it came to me but halfway through the day.

Yesterday morning Dirk made a great breakfast and asked me if I like the pancakes just as I was about to burp. It wasn’t demure- but a long winded bellow.

Me: No, that’s not what I meant- they were really good!

Dirk: You had me at the belch.
