The weather. Seriously. It is freaking APRIL. Shut up with the winter already.

School is letting out 15 minutes early today due to the weather. I'm not really sure I understand the point. It's only 15 minutes. Do they really think it's going to get that much worse in the space of 15 minutes? And if so, then when can I move to Texas? Because this is getting silly.

Today I decided to dismantle the ceiling fan and clean it. I felt like a BOSS. And the water was all brown. I had no idea the fan blades were supposed to be clear. Ok, kind of translucent-ish. But still. Not tan. hahaha

My new job is great. Low-stress, nice people to work with, and there's a big giant window right behind my desk so I can sit and look outside and watch all the college students scurrying to and fro. And the squirrel. The squirrel in the tree is fat, and he likes to perch on the very tippy ends of branches where they can't really support him. It's entertaining.

I've asked this before, and I'm sure I'll ask it again, but HOW do families function when both parents work full-time? That's not a judgmental question or anything, I'm genuinely curious because with all the running around and cleaning and cooking and making sure everyone gets their baths in the evening and everything, I really don't know how parents do it when they're out of the house all day and then have to come home to chaos. My hat's off to you people. Working half-time has already crunched my schedule a bit. I can't imagine trying to get it all figured out if I worked 8 to 5 every day.

I am still crocheting. But I haven't completed anything so I have nothing to show for it. I want to make myself a big shoulder bag for summer, but I have to buy yarn for it and I haven't decided yet what color I want to use. So by the time I figure it out, it'll be done just in time for winter probably. That's how I roll. I started making myself a cowl in March, people. How ridiculous is that?

I guess I'd better go get ready to get the girl child since school is getting out early and all. Blargh. Maybe I can get a parking spot in front so I don't have to get out of the car. It's freaking cold, dude.

  1. Yeah, man, your weather blows! My friend Anna has been complaining. It used to do that in Idaho in late April, sometimes even May, and I would just feel like, REALLY???? Enough is enough.

    I'm glad you like your new job! I sit right next to a wall of windows now, and I find it difficult to not get distracted by the view. It's really nice. :-)
