Thursday Things

...and yes, they are random things.
*My handy dandy 'to do' notebook was full and I spent too much time looking for a similar notebook to keep track of life. I know I have one, but it appears lost in the void. Honestly, I felt very discombobulated without it. This notebook is like my life line. I still kind of feel that way since the notebook I found isn't the one I wanted. How weird is that?
*My elbow hurts. A lot. I think it's because of the way I sit and the way I hold the mouse or hold my hand over the keyboard when I'm typing. I've been doing okay remembering to get up and stretch not only the elbow, but every other part as well, but it's still store.
*I am so sick of doing laundry that I've begun training the younger K's on proper laundry protocol. It's going well, except for their constant bickering and the fact that they have no concept of sock matching. I can live with mismatched socks, the bickering is another thing entirely. Once they are properly trained, I will move to "laundry days". Brilliant.
*K3's awful nosebleeds appear to be on their way out. This is after a cauterization and several trips to the doctor. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll have minimal nosebleeds from here on out.
*Stink bugs. Since the weather has warmed, they've come out of hiding. B, for some odd reason known only to him, had to tell me he'd removed three from our bedroom when he went to take a shower. Did not need to know that. I also removed two from the dining room - with the bottom of my shoe. They're everywhere. The cat is no longer interested in them, probably because he got stink on him. Special note: Do not rinse stink bugs down your drain. The smell takes forever to go away.
Gotta go. Parent-teacher conferences loom on the horizon.

You are the only one who seems to understand the horror of evil stink bugs in the house. They are so completely disgusting and obviously of infinite numbers. They obviously hide in those deep dark places of the foul existence humans never comprehend and then creep into our world with their caustic odor and monstrous appearance. Death to stink bugs!

Stink bugs are the bane of my existence right now!! Where do they hide?
Remind me to tell you about the time I think I ate one!

Yay on K3's nosebleeds!

You know, I'm either incredibly lucky, or incredibly stupid. The bugs we call stink bugs, I've never smelled. Ever. Even though I disposed of half a dozen alone this week.

Yep, I know, I've jinxed it. :)

Victoria said...

Yeah, well, the nosebleed thing...not really all that better right now. Urgh. Don't go back to the doc for 2 weeks.

Yep. You did jinx it. Let me know when you do smell them. Ick!!

Well, that sucks! :(
