Really? No Full Moon?

June 14, 2017

Like what’s with the Full Moon kinda week?






In the last few days we have discovered that we really did have bats in the attic. While cleaning up the bat crap, the shopvac broke, so Mike had to go buy a new one. The crew that was supposed to show up to do mudjacking last week finally showed up today but then the driveway cracked and broke while they were mudjacking it up. I came home from working today and pulled into the garage, then remembered immediately that we aren’t supposed to drive on the driveway for 48 hours, so I backed out real quick. Mike doesn’t know this and I think that’s best. I’ve dropped two large containers of blueberries that rolled all over the kitchen floor. I’m not gonna lie. I ate some. The kitchen sink drain has been leaking for the past two days and Mike keeps fixing it and every time I pull out the dish soap from under the sink, it’s leaking again and he keeps finding a new problem with it. Mike got a speeding ticket yesterday in an area where it goes from 45 to 35 and it’s easy to forget that it does that. One of his clients backed into his front bumper a few days ago, but his car was just dirty enough that he didn’t notice any damage until yesterday when he washed his car. He spilled some wood stain in his car today and on his jeans. I think it came out of the car and his jeans, but when I washed a load of my clothes tonight, they smelled like stain.

I just walked in the bedroom where Mike is working away on the remodel. It is 9:30 p.m.

Mike – “Just go ahead and say it.”

Me – “What?”

Mike – “What’s broken now?”

Me – “Nothing as far as I know right now. I just wanna climb in bed.”

We just keep looking at each other and laughing. I still can not believe there is no full moon.

    Oh my gosh Michelle, I am so sorry. You guys really are going through a lot!

    I like that you’ve decided to say the serenity prayer daily.

    Sending lots of prayers your way for you and your husband. Thinking of you and sending hugs as well.


  2. Geez sounds like my life lately. It is almost like if you didn’t have any bad luck you wouldn’t have any luck at all. In January we had to dig to the footings and put 50 tons of gravel around our house. Then we had to replace the front porch. Then my husband who has been healthy all of his life was diagnosed with brain cancer at the end of March. Then he had a hemorrhagic stroke 3 weeks after surgery. Sometime you wonder how much more can get heaped on you. I say the Serenity Prayer everyday and exercise to keep my sanity and hope I stay healthy to take care of him.

    lol. Dust bunnies I can deal with.

    I hope you have a great summer planned!



  4. I feel your pain–this end of school year was extremely hard to get through and nothing felt right.
    At least I didn’t have to deal with bats—-I just had a lot of dust bunnies.
