Me, in a shell of a nut. Now with pictures.

I thought I would take you on a tour of my week. It's been a busy one of no consequence.
  • I have knit, torn out, knit again, torn out, etc., the same hat 4 times this week. I finally finished it and am happy with it. First Christmas present done!
  • I accidentally wrote "hate" when I tried to write "hat" and that might tell you about this week and how things are going.
  • Positive note: Our house is getting somewhat closer to looking like a house. Frame is up for the main floor and the garage frame is almost ready.

    I love the trailer looks like a boat from this angle.
  • I ate pie, ice cream, and salt & vinegar chips for supper tonight. Because I'm a grown up.
  • I finally finished the first season of Orange is the New Black and now I'm mad the second season isn't out yet.
  • Grandma doesn't know who my brother is when he visits, but can still trump most the family in a game of Scrabble. The mind is a funny thing.
  • Untitled

  • I was grumpy earlier and it really hasn't gone away. I'm trying to suffocate it in carbs.
  • I have had 5 cupcakes in 2 days. I don't even feel guilty.
  • I had the following conversation with The Guy. He's my favourite.

  • The only reason I have walked the dog is because he has guilt tripped me every night until I give in. He stares at me and sighs and looks at the door longingly. I hate him.
  • This little girl caught my eye. She was too adorable, so I took a picture. I'm that creepy person.
  • Untitled
    Her little coat was adorable. 
  • I was in meetings all weekend and they were the best part of my week. That is sad. 
  • I have two night shifts this week and then I'm off to see Pink in concert. I'm rather looking forward to it. Though, I'm not sure I know more than 3 of her songs.

  2. Pie, ice cream and chips...that's my kind of dinner! Did you sprinkle the chips on the ice cream...i've never done that, but I think it sounds pretty delicious!

  3. I'd eat s&v chips for dinner, too... because I'm a grown up and I can! And what's wrong with 5 cupcakes in 2 days - you're a grown up and you can!!! ;-) I hope you enjoy Pink... but seriously, ballroom dancing with cats is a must!!!

    1. Pink was cancelled. I'm heartbroken. And, I took 2 night shifts off for no reason.

  6. We're having similar weeks. I honestly said to Jeff last night, "I'm a grownup, I can't eat whatever I want for dinner!" -- I had french fries. Carbs have also played a major part in my grumpy week, but with little effect. You are hilarious; I hope your week finishes on a high note

  7. Orange is the New Black = awesome! I was so mad too, what do you mean there was only one season for me to watch Netflix? :/

  9. Oh yes, the days of eating cupcakes, ice cream and chips. I have a feeling, after Halloween, when I send Grace off to school, I'll be indulging in some candy bar breakfasts :). I love how you so simply sum things up in such a real but funny way. I want to read your dairy :).

    1. Oh God, my diary was TERRIBLE. I only kept one as a teen. I was so angsty and serious and condescending. Ugh. I'm much funnier when I'm trying to impress people now. Back then I was sure it would be discovered after I died leaving a glorious career of intellectual novels and would be revered. UGH.

  10. hmmm your diet sounds like mine used to be. But no more! I don't eat much dessert now, but when I do it comes BEFORE the meal. Because I can. lol!

  11. Your grandmother's mad Scrabble skills may (somewhat) explain you killer Words with Friends skills.

As much as I like to hear myself talk, I like to hear from you too!
