Letting in earwigs and beetles and potato bugs on the floors
The windows aren’t sealed and let in the dust
Our yellow stove is old with spots of rust
The furnace makes a noise that can scare a grown man
There is someone across the street looking shady in a van
A swamp cooler sucks blowing warm moist air
But ours is the worst, dripping water all year
Our 1986 linoleum floor is warped and uneven
Better watch your step, it can be deceiving
From a mystery vent in the bathroom comes bird noises and water drops
And when you go number 2 – the water always stops
We actually own a professional plumbers snake
And use it quite regularly for GOODNESS SAKE
Laundry is done in the kitchen you see
You could easily kick in the door with just your knee
Pretty sure I’ve seen the neighbors doing meth & pot
Classy? Our cul-de-sac? It is not.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for a place to stay
But please, let us know, if something comes your way!!!!!!!!!!

Today, I pretty much went to work, got pizza with hubby-o, went to my moms to set up her new iPod, and am now home.
Times that, in general, by 7, and that is my past week.
The only thing 'different' about this month is that I got promoted to a supervisor at work. Am pretty excited about it, but other than that, normal.
This past year, I was pretty much prego the whole time between the miscarriage + Max. So that = hormones, fat, new, fat, cry, cry, fat, love Max, happy, tired.
In the next year, my number one goal is to get out of this dingy apartment!!!!! Hate!! I want to hopefully buy a house this year. I also hope to get some debt paid off, and of course, raise little Maxi-poo.
I've got something in my eye - I gotta go.

what tickles my fancy this week is this: I saw a freaking full on article once on "how to fold a fitted sheet" which I think is absolutely obnoxious. It makes it even more pathetic that it is Martha Stewart. Don't worry - if you didn't get it from the article, there is a step-by-step video from YouTube, too.
Here is my version:
So, on day 16, when it asked ('it'??) a song that makes you cry - I don't know why I put the one I did. It was the first thing that came to my mind. But I heard this song the other day and for real almost did cry. I don't know if it is the tune or the words or what but it can change my mood so fast. My dad said one time that he wants it played at his funeral and that makes me sick. Anyway, here it is, 'Remember When' by Alan Jackson

love this vase thing - don't talk to me about the deer
Like to refinish old furniture
like the hutch, valance, shutters, and green wall color

This song reminds me of my 'first love', my first real boyfriend back in the day & it just brings back all the emotions and craziness of that time. After we broke up, for a long long time, years maybe (until I met Benj!), I couldn't hear this without going into a deep depression, ending up in the fetal position on my bed for days.

Here are some pictures from the day. For family night, we went and set up freaking tents at girls camp. This is Max & his aunt Domonique.
