Running errands for others

Why is it that always "lends" me out to others to run their errands? Does he think that I am at home sitting on the couch twiddling my thumbs thinking "Oh how I wish would call me and ask me to run around town getting information on rentals for his co-worker".

And me being me, I went out and did that for him. hmmff.

Earlier in the day I fixed my dishwasher. That stupid dishwasher has been giving me problems for months. Finally today I took that darn thing apart and found the problem, fixed it and put it back together and wha-la, fixed!

Now, after dinner is done, I can relax. I think I've earned it.

I'm am really tired of this.

I'm in a funk. A serious funk. I have no clue why I feel this way. It's not a sickie, it's just a I don't feel like doing anything, everything sucks kind of funk. Even shopping is ho-hum. It takes a lot out of me to get dressed and my outfits lack creativity.

This weekend was no different. Yesterday I could have stayed in bed all day, but I had to drop a package off at the post office so I got up to so. However as soon as I got back home I crawled back in bed and watched movies off of Netflix.

Today I slept in until 11am and I got up and ready to go to the local pizza place for the Packers game. I wanted to just watch it at home, but wanted to go there because the Packers fan club meets there and he wants to be a part of it again. It was fun, and I am glad I went.

Now at home I am again ready for bed. I hope I get out of this self inflicted funk soon because I can't stand myself right now.

I still got sunburned

This Labor Day weekend we went to Mission Beach in San Diego. It was cold and grey but being that the weather was like that the beach wasn't crowded. It was lovely. We kept ourselves busy with the shops and with the beach itself. and the boys actually got in the 50 degree water and used their boogie boards. I was a chicken but and didn't get in the water. Every time they got out of the water I would point out their purple fingers, toes and lips. But they didn't care, they were having too much fun.

We saw dolphins and other sea creatures up close. It was a really nice mini-vacation.

I must be Soupa strong : )

Yesterday I decided to wash some dishes by hand. While washing a tall glass I broke it. Not the "oops it slipped" kind of breaking the glass but the "my hand was inside the glass washing it and it broke" kind. I was twisting my wrist washing the inside and "crack!" it breaks, stabbing me in two places. My hand and the sink got all red with my gushing blood. I quickly grabbed some paper towels and they would be soaked in a matter of seconds.

My boys were freaking out and they were running around like chickens with their heads cut off collecting gauze and cloth tape so I could wrap my hand.

After they wrapped my hand (and I looked as if I were a boxer) they relaxed. A couple hours later I figured it was okay to take it off and let the wounds air dry. Big mistake! Blood started gushing again. I decided to wrap it again and just go to Urgent Care. Turns out they were a bit deep so in went some stitches.

Serves me right and I have learned my lesson. I need to leave the dish washing to the machine.
