194

Monday. And if that was’t enough, it’s just past 5.30am. I feel like hitting my head against the wall. I know I fell asleep very early, but waking at 4.30am is outrageous. I can’t fall back asleep so I’m trying to be productive.
My weekend was ok. The house looks great, included backyard and front yard. My mom can’t rest if there are pending things. She claims that her brain suffers with the idea that there are things to do. I explained her about 4 million times that I don’t give a crap if I don’t do something right away. It’ll get done when I feel like doing it. The great thing about it is that when she leaves, mostly everything will be done so I could relax for a few days. At least, that’s the plan.

I totally forgot that yesterday was “Women’s Day”. I didn’t know it was already March 8th. In my head, it was probably the 5th. The “I don’t know which day is today” is ruling my life lately. So for all the women, and one day later, have a nice day, full of love and happiness.
If you happen to be in Italy on March 8th, you’ll get these flowers from the acacia tree (known commonly as thorntree, whistling thorn, or wattle).

And I’m sure my dad didn’t know it was March 8th either because we didn’t get any flowers this year!

Spring is in the air. The birds are already singing. I didn’t see many flowers yet but I’m sure they are about to bloom. My garden has many rhododendrons forming an L and separating the garden from the pond area. Since I moved here, I can see the buds all around and I’m waiting to see the flowers. I have no idea which color they will be but I know for sure that they’ll make me smile every time I see them.
All my neighbors have been busy gardening. They are all retired and I’m not sure if they do it because the garden takes a lot of time or if it’s because there is not much more to do (I think I go for option two).
My gardening experience is limited to mowing the lawn three times and a flower pot back in Cowshitland. I wish I could say I have Green Thumbs. That’s not the case at all. I manage to drown a cactus, and that’s pretty amazing because I rarely water my plants. I made them resistant to harsh conditions (read: living with me).

I hope your Monday doesn’t suck. But in the case it does, close your eyes and listen to this:

    You are getting into the music scene! I hope you at least received the photo of my chair. I’ll spend time tomorrow seeing why they are not going. Probably because I own every MAC goodie, everything goes to cloud, then I transfer to photo software on desktop. Right now it doesn’t matter I have my chair with it’s built in laptop tray. What a difference that makes. I shut the door to office, lit a candle and played the new Blake Shelton CD. It was nice to have the room all to myself. I didn’t have to listen to whatever sport he had on. Do you like country music? Check out Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood has an amazing voice and lyrics that can tear you down. I really Kelly Clarkson because she’s from here, bad ass doesn’t care who likes her and her voice is amazing. I really like her sassy breakup songs. I like lots of country, just have to be in mood. I’m always in the mood for Blake! Nice on the eyes, funny as hell, tall, plays a great guitar and sings mostly about drinking and getting lucky and just something about the way he walks. Takes me back to my much younger days. I don’t miss them but sure glad I did it all. Today I was in a funky bitch mood and had the idea of doing a post of funny things people don’t know about me.
    Did you check out my Bucket List yet, I have a trip for us in there.
    Life is just wearing me down right now. My heart is breaking because my cat is very sick and I don’t believe the Vet when he said Truffles wasn’t in pain. I just cry every time I think about our 15 years together and how much I’ll miss him. I told David we had to make a decision on putting him to sleep. I can’t go this time. When Sasha my Shar Pei was put to sleep we stayed in the room and held her as she died. I cried for what seemed like forever. I don’t have the mental strength to watch another baby die. It’s so sad.
    enough of the downer. Have a great day with the folks, sounds like time for a side trip.
    Hugs

    • Hola Twin!
      I didn’t get your chair picture. Only your short hair. Very nice!
      I’m glad you slept the entire day, your body was tired and I hope you could rest.
      I’m sorry about your cat. I can’t imagine the pain that putting a baby to sleep could bring.
      I’m still not really into music Twin. Sometimes I tolerate something but not always. I’ll check the funny songs (if I get to read the lyrics), otherwise I don’t get 2 words of it. You know my English is not that advanced 😀
      Many hugs and don’t be sad. The weather is getting better and I’m sure the doctor in DC will help you soon 🙂

        I think you are secretly taking DJ lessons so you can be the next breakout celebrity DJ. Go to the hottest clubs, that’s where the money and men are. I don’t understand why photos didn’t go. I sent them via phone thru email. I’ll try on the laptop. You have to see what is now permanently strapped to my ass.
        Take care, trying to go to bed early tonight. Lyme keeps you exhausted. It doesn’t matter how many hours you sleep but you sometimes feel a bit better. Your scarf will hopefully arrive this week.
        Hugs
