Sad. Just Sad.
What do you do when you find out that your BFF needs to leave her husband and she lives 2 states away?

I hate more than anything to take sides as there are always 2 sides to every story, but in this situation the lines are drawn.

My heart is broken, I can only imagine how she is feeling.

Please send good vibes her way if you don't mind, she is going to need them.

Casa de Bug will no longer be ours come June 28th. Our humble little home packed to the brink with all of my favorite memories, will be just that, a memory. The house sold rather quickly considering the market we are in. There was a small bit of concern over the last few days if the buyers were actually going to follow through but everything worked out and I think everyone is happy again!

We found out that our new build will be done sooner than we thought (which is great news) and looks like we will only have to rent a house for 3 months and not live with anyone else in the time bewteen renting and ours being finished. That in itself is a huge weight off of our shoulders.

The family reunion has come and gone. It seems like it was so long ago already when it was only last weekend. It was such a whirlwind of a trip we really didn't get to visit much with everyone we wanted to but we did get to see them and I will be back in a few weeks so maybe then.

It seems that the girl is having a great time. She hasn't called and I am going to let her call us first. I did call my aunt to see how she was and just as I suspected she is just busy.busy.busy. All those cousins to play with, who can blame her for not wanting to miss out on that fun by calling home.

Everyone wants to know do we miss her? Sure we do, but not like I really thought I would to tell you the truth. Before we left she was still in school so I only saw her about an hour in the morning and about 2 hours in the evening. I am sure as time goes by it will get worse. But on the other foot as time goes by it just means that she is that much closer to coming home. 13 days will fly by with everything else we have going on. It has actually worked out "nice" for me as I can pack boxes without her "helping" and asking a billion questions about everything.

I think that is as much as an update that I can muster up at this point. I have a list of calls a mile long and that isn't getting any shorter with me updating here. More again as soon as I can spare a few mins.

Empty Promises
Seems as if I mentioned I was going to be better about blogging. Guess I was a big-o-fat liar on that one. I can barely remember to brush my teeth most of the time these days let alone remember to blog about all the little things.

We have been busy little bees around the ol' bug shack. The lovely bug shack that we are hoping won't be ours much longer. There is a pretty,flashy, sparkling sign in the front yard trying to tempt the fates that be to stop in and have a look around the joint. We put money down on a new build so, as much as we would like to think we can make 2 payments we can't, we must part ways with the our humble little home.

I have been overwhelmed with making sure that every bed is made, every toilet flushed, every dirty spoon is in the dishwasher before we run out the door in the mornings. It is lovely to come home to a clean house every night don't get me wrong, but man there are days that I am almost at the point of passing out worrying if I picked my dirty underwear up off the bathroom floor.

School will be out soon so that will allow for a few extra minutes to perform previous mentioned tasks. Speaking of school being out, we will be pulling the girl out early the last day to race to the airport to attend a family reunion. We will come home late Sunday night leaving our most precious possession behind until I return for a wedding 3 weeks later. I had to make an appointment this morning to go over some new house stuff and I was trying to figure out where the girl would go while we went. No worries she will be living the good life hanging out in Podunk still. I think just about the time I get used to being "kid free" again, it will be time for her to come home.

Nothing Is Ever Easy
Don't ya just hate it when you can't think of anything exciting to blog about? Yeah, me too. That seems to me lately. Nothing to talk about, which really isn't me as I could talk your socks off on any given day.

How about a funny story. It much funnier now than when it happened but you know how it is, if you don't laugh about it you would probably cry.

This past weekend the hubs was touching up paint in our bathroom. He climbed up on the edge of the tub holding a quart size can of paint. As he reached over his head he lost his balance. As he fell backwards he grabbed the towel bar yanking it out of the wall and fell onto the toilet knocking it about 6" off its base. Awesome! Paint was everywhere.

He (I was out of town so this is all secondhard info) had to throw away the bathroom rugs, the shower curtain and liner, a few towels, and 3! YES I SAID 3 pairs of my shoes. The paint flew all the way across the bathroom and into my closet. As he was a one man show at that point I guess he had to pick and choose what to clean up first. The shoes were not real high on his priority list I guess.

I am going to keep this in my pocket until the next time I go shopping and he wants to know why I need so many new pairs of shoes.

Happy Birthday!
Happy 1st Birthday! I can't believe its been a year since you came into our lives. I miss you and Little Mister and Mama and Daddy too. I can't wait to see you this weekend!
Love, Auntie Mar


If its not one things its another. We've been trying to get our house ready to put in on the market and buy a bigger one! Its funny all the little things we have been doing and fixing up were fine for the last 8 years, but now! Must.fix.everything.

The small little pettiness at school continues with the girl and the turd as she has come to been known at our house. I saw the turd this morning and said to her "Lets all work on being nice to each other today". She looked at me like yeah screw you and said "What have I done?".

Then their is all the little "doctor" stuff that has been going on. Everything is fine, but a pain in the arse nonetheless.

The fine establishment that gives me a big o chunk of change 2 times a month has called in a missing persons report on me, given I haven't been here much. I think I may have used all my vacation days up into the year 2115.

It will all get better. It will all get better. It will all get better.

I will try to be better (I just typed more better, great now my mind is going to pot as well) about posting.

Got Milk?
Why is it if I buy a half gallon of milk it seems like we are always running out. But if I buy a gallon I always end up dumping half of it down the drain because it goes bad before we use it.

(If only this were the biggest worry in my life right?)

Me Worry? No, Never!
Last night after my nap on the couch and the hubs woke me up to go to bed, I couldn't get back to sleep. I tossed and turned for what seemed like a long time. I had myself all worked up and in quite the tizzy.

What was bothering me you ask? I was worried about what we would eat for dinner on our lay over at the airport. Yeah, we will be at the airport May 25th. Nothing like putting the cart before the horse hu?

I think it all started with dinner last night. We were having a gourmet meal of grilled cheese sandwiches. Hubs said he wanted 2 and the girl was eating her first one and asked for another. I told her as long as she would eat it, I would make it for her but if not that was the last of the bread and if you only thought she wanted it, I would eat it. The look she gave me was one of great concern. She wanted to know what I was going to eat if she had the last sandwich. I told her that I would find something else but that is just what Moms do, give up things for their kids without thinking twice. (I think she may have decided to become a nun right then and there, she is a bean pole but the thought of giving up food for someone else made her stop and think).

This got me to thinking about the time we went to PoDunk and flew in late and stayed in a hotel before driving to our home town. It was late and there was nothing close to our hotel to eat and was too late to order pizza (we were picking up our rental car the next morning). We were all pretty hungry and all I had in our carry-on was half a bag of beef jerky. I remember letting Hubs and K have it all knowing we would just get up early and have breakfast.

All of this in turn had my mind spinning. If we leave here at 2 its really 4 there, so that makes it 7 when we get there which is only 5 here yadda yadda yadda. So logically at 7 pm there will be plenty of things still open in the airport so we won't wither away to nothing in the 2 hours we are in the land of 10,000 Lakes.

I am off to eat an ice cream sandwich and start building up extra body fat between now and then, just in case ya know.
