The birds are still doing their mating dance.
The kids are playing some weird pretend game with legos that is really loud. At least they aren’t bossing each other around since the last time I sent a dirty look in their direction.
The dogs are in their “I’m not a trip hazard, I’m just sleeping” positions.*
I just got up to throw something away and apparently Cali is my herding dog on duty. Normally I get Abbie who is much more noticeable and Cali herds the kids.
I’m still coughing up snot balls but I think my love affair with Mucinex will be nothing more than a one night stand.
So, what am I going to do about it all? Nothing.
Nope, nothing at all. I’m not going to interfere with the kids or try and drown out the bird screeching. I’m not going to trip over the dogs. I’m just going to ignore it all** and drink warm stuff and clean my room. I want to get my closet cleaned out very very badly. We have a new Goodwill about 5 minutes away and I so totally need an excuse to go! Goodwill, today, I will have a bag of clothing to donate. 😀
I also need to figure out why my gamer suddenly doesn’t like the monitor that’s been on it for over a year. *rolls eyes* After that, I need to clean up the desk area, take some photos and introduce you to Patron. Patron is my new Dirt Devil super sucker on a stick. He’s totally awesome – he has no brushes or belts or anything. He’s just a hand vac on a stick. The first time I turned him on, he stuck to the floor like a suction cup and I had to pry him off. I was going to name him Jose (after the jalepeno on a stick) but Shaun reminded me that I have a very bad time with Jose (Cuervo). Jose is an asshole who gives me anger management problems and migraines. So, Patron is the kinder, gentler intoxicating substance on a stick. Or something.
Anyways, pictures soon. I’m only 1/5th of the way through the Christmas pictures so it may be next year when you finally get to see Patron.
Other crap to do… combine lists into a master plan, figure out what gift cards go where and with who, and figure out what’s going on with LibraryThing and BookMooch***. Fun stuff!
* Having shepherd dogs is great and they come with a factory setting that no firmware upgrade will override. They herd things into groups and if you move, they put you back where you’re supposed to be. If you stay put, they go to sleep. There are times it’s really nice to be cattle – like if I’m having problems with my heart or if Shaun’s away on business. Other times it’s like having a 60 lb hemorrhoid.
** Unless something the shepherds can’t handle happens – like the little shits figure out how to create an IED out of play-do or something.
*** BookMooch has been soooooooooo slow that I’m hardly ever on it. It’s not that people don’t want my books, it’s that there’s nothing on there I don’t already have or that I don’t want. So I have like 30 points with nothing to spend them on. Anyone need a donation? If so, comment me with your BM name and I’ll dispatch a few!
