But, in my defense, it's been a crazy few months. lol Not that I haven't had tons of stuff to blog about, but getting the time, motivation and energy (all at the same time) to get on here has been the problem. Even now, I should be cleaning up this house. Instead I have sat on the front porch and read and waited while the fat lazy mailman stuffed a box that was too big into my mailbox, instead of driving up the driveway and putting it on the porch. Hell, I would have even walked out to his truck and gotten it. I couldn't get the damned thing out of the box and had to come back in the house (cursing his name) get a long flat edge screwdriver and pry it out of the mailbox. Luckily it was double boxed, so I didn't damage the dvds. I was furious. So far I have refrained from calling the PO and registering a complaint. He really is a huge lumpy limpy mess. This isn't the first time he's done this. But dammit, I am disabled too. Grrr... (bless them and change me...bless him and change me...)
On a brighter note, it's beautiful out there today. Sunshine and blue skies. We have had the screwiest weather imaginable, all year. May is proving to be no exception to it either. It got to temps in the 80's, then crashed back down to the 30's. Lots of severe storms. Dust storms so bad (from freshly plowed fields- we live in corn country round these parts) on the interstate north of here that it caused a gigantic crash Monday morning of 30 commercial vehicles and about 42 cars...7 people dead and 30 injured. Explosions from gas tanks and big trucks created black smoke you could see for miles. 60 mph winds that were NOT tornadoes. They closed the road for 2 days trying to get vehicles cleared away, and then the next day the winds were bad again. Today though, it's barely breezy and the temps are in the mid to high 60's.
I'm getting ready to start a batch of marinara for supper tonight. All vegetables, salad and garlic naan, unless I run to the store right when he gets home. I was going to bake some garlic rolls, but like everything else I was going to do, I haven't. lol I've been hungry for some Sketti. I probably still have time to make the rolls...but I probably won't. I don't know what's wrong with me. I have 6 baby kittens that are about 4 1/2 weeks old and so cute I am paralyzed with adoration. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. lol They are starting to gallop down the hallway now and climb anything they can reach. Including our pantlegs. lol
So...all in all still alive and well. Life on Honeysuckle Hill moves on. Life continues to be a series of miracles. And that's about the gist of it.
All you had to do is say you had kittens there and that's a legitimate excuse to not get anything done! LOL!
I was delighted to see a post from you.
I know about mail men who smash things. In an older apartment building I lived in we had the boxes that tipped down and the mailman had to fill the tall narrow boxes from the top. He smashed everything down inside (could have dropped some in with no problem) so that our mail was accordioned, torn, and mangled beyond belief. I complained directly to him and he said "my hands are too big" with such finality. So I complained directly to the post office and they suggested I rent a PO Box. Nothing was done about him at all. Good luck. :)
wait? who are you again?...........kittens.....oh that's better.
Kittens are the best!
