my 5yrs : Big trucks can’t drive crazy but little cars can.
my Dh: little cars shouldn’t drive crazy either
my 5 yrs : But, Corvettes!?
My youngest seems to have kicked Lyme into remission! Praise God! (Thank you for your prayers!)
My Lyme however is flaring up and due to other health issues I had to put BVT on hold.
On a brighter note a new FSSP Parish is opening up near us and we are becoming new parishioners!
Our middle daughter just turned five! She requested a honeybee pinata so I made a beehive pinata with little honeybees glued on. It was a hit (heh) and a fairly easy design. Although assembling the honeybees by gluing pipe cleaners, fuzz balls, and paper wings together was a bit time consuming:
After five years of knowing our bedroom furniture’s layout just wasn’t quite right, I switched it up and am now asking myself why did I think it was such a big deal? Alright, so it was work. But not that much considering the results. Also no paint or money were involved!
This video was incredibly helpful:
I run an etsy bookstore. It does well. The books move, I get good reviews, I make some money, it is an enjoyable endeavor but Etsy has a “bug” and my sales have been stuck in “processing” the third party money pusher (basically an etsy version of paypal) is dead. Not functioning – CA-put !
I have had orders “pending” since July 4th! I can do nothing about it. It is unprofessional, it is an embarrassment, it is unbelievable that this bug is still not resolved. Some shops have had orders pending for a week or more! I can understand a glitch for a day or two, a week, no.
Etsy has offered no support, no compensation for the trouble, for customers lost, for orders lost. NOTHING. Some of my costumers are in a catch-22. They would like to cancel their order because of the “bug” but guess what, they can’t. Why? Because their order is still stuck in processing! Etsy get your act together!
The flowers in my garden have
all come to seed and like
the years before this (and the years to come)
I hope for newer blossoms
As I hold them in my hands.
The center of our home has been gutted and the rest of the house has fallen into disarray (despite great effort). It is tiring living without a kitchen! We have no oven or sink (aside from the bathroom sinks) The fridge has found its new home in the living room. We grill, toast and microwave our way through life these days. I am ready for the simple luxuries of a functioning kitchen! However, we found some water damage and so the project will take longer than we anticipated.
Beginning of project (2 weeks ago)
