*Today was my 37th birthday and I am feeling kind of blahhhhh...Not because it is my b-day and I turned an odd number (which I am not a fan of), but because I am having my period. I am sorry if that is too much information but it is my blog and if you are here reading this than you are most likely used to me "keeping it real". I feel yucky. I have for the past 2 days. Lower back pain and cramps. Heating pad and Ibuprofen, and it only helps a little kind of pain. I have to admit I had to work really hard not to be really grumpy today and even then I am not sure I was doing
*I am back in the having a hard time falling asleep phase again. Some sorry, sad, soul told me I could be going through "the change". I admittedly wanted to punch them because I am not that old. I just can't relax. I cannot turn my brain off when I get into bed, which is interesting because I am sure there are a lot of people who
*We went to the library today to sign up for the summer reading program. Jake couldn't sign up downstairs in the kid section this year. We had to go upstairs to the teen section...? He is 11 going on 12. Downstairs they had a "tween" sign up. I figured 11 would fall into that category. Apparently, the definition of teen has changed to rising 7th graders. I am not sure I was ready to here that I have a "teenager" on today of all days: my period pained, odd numbered birthday....
*Our mouse trap caught 2 more mice in the past 24 hours bringing our grand total is up to 7. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! And I wonder why I can't sleep, as I think about the fact that if a mouse can get in, so can a snake that is stalking it. I am afraid to go into the kitchen and now laundry room. I try to make Sadie go with me and Jake is the official filler of the washer and dryer. He brings it to me in another
*While I am 37 I am going to try to not be so deathly afraid of snakes. I have been praying for it, but I have to admit I have been very specific with Heavenly Father that I DO NOT want it to happen through having to have an encounter with a snake...or snakes. I want to
just feel comforted that there are no snakes when I am out in the backyard-or if there is it is okay because they aren't going to come near me (unlike the dumb snake in the tree over our porch or the one in the big lake that choose to swim right by us--RUDE!!!). I want to not have to think about them every time I go outside. I want to get over this fear/obsession that has gotten worse lately. I have been praying and letting Heavenly Father know that if I don't see a snake for a really long time (or ever again, if that could be arranged) that will help a lot. This isn't like praying for patience and having to be patient-I don't want to get over it by seeing them all the time. I am 100% sure that that would not help at all.
*I had to go on Facebook today to thank a ton of people who filled my email inbox with birthday wishes. It is so nice of everyone, but I really don't get the appeal of Facebook...
*It makes me sad when I am in public and I look around and everyone is looking at their smart phones. Our society has now gone past always talking on there cell phones. Now everyone stares at them....ignoring the people they are
*It is a really good thing I love our dog because she is shedding like never before. When we brush her we fill up a grocery bag. Then we vacuum like crazy. No matter how much we brush, there is fur coming out of her all.the.time. No matter how often we vacuum, there is fur every where all.the.time. I keep thinking we should be seeing bald spots, but it is as thick as every. She is part Lab-a dog that can hold it's
*Maybe I will be able to sleep now since I cleared out my brain...
