This Day was a Day


Today has been a long day and I achieved only a third of the things I needed to achieve. It started with a six am trek to the water closet only to find there was a tiny ant invasion coming in through a crack in the bathtub caulking.

I am, to my own detriment sometimes, anti-killer of anything. I get choked up when I have to prune my plants. I chalk this up to having spent so much of my younger life around so much visual ick, death, and general darkness. After a lot of horrible experiences in life, my empathy button is set to “OH THE HORROR OF THIS WORLD” so I don’t like killing anything. I have an especially strong love of insects to boot. So I don’t like having to kill them. However, the tiny ant swam in the bathroom was beyond my rounding them up and taking them outside. I also can’t abide by material killing, eating, or dirtying in my household. I had to be a bit more aggressive with them. That doesn’t mean I have to like it. This sent me back to sleep with ill thoughts on the brain.

Upon waking I set to the task of getting my shoppe stuff in order. First I ran out of shipping boxes in all sizes. Next my shipping tape and label spray adhesive died. Then I hit the bottom of my “extras” box, so I couldn’t throw in any of my traditional mini prints with my thank-you notes. So I needed to go to the store. This was alright because I already had a shop trip planned mid-day with my gent’s mum, but before I got to that into-the-world-trek the bathroom exploded with the tiny ants again.

The day got away from me after that in strange ways that don’t need a blog outline of. What the hell… *strange expression face that follows* enough so that right now I’m tucking this into my blog while I calm down watching a Reds game. Strange, strange day. Highlights that don’t suck though? The Wonder Woman trailer looked awesome. I was able to give my gent’s mum the most incredible gift of boozy gourmet shmores. And I had a chance to chat with my dad for a bit before everything went south. I will take my victories.

On that note, I so need to sleep. We’re still catching up from the past few weeks (this last weekend being an exclamation point on that time) and combating a little convention crud… oh wait, I’m sorry… Egbert, for those who read my blog. I am exhausted though. Tomorrow I catch up on my shoppe orders in earnest. (Holy heck! Speaking of which… my shoppe was lovingly attacked this weekend with orders. I had to do another special deck order to catch up so that I don’t get behind.) And then so much to do. We’re doing weekend shops this summer for my shoppe (sorry, I spell them differently) and there is so much that goes into planning that. So much inventory needs! It’s wonderful and draining all in one big beautiful moment.

Yet as I leave you… have you noticed? YES!! I’ve cleaned up and updated all my sites to make them a little more pretty, easy to move through, and connected. I’ve got a handful of small things to do, but overall? I’m really pleased. I’m a little closer to my goal of having all my sites clean, united, and easy to navigate and move through! However, right now? I’m going to happily sip a Twisted Cherry Tea (make me a teaspokeswoman!) and finish this Reds game and go to bed. See you in the AM!

"They changed the rules of the fairy tale. I'm no longer just the eccentric niece, now I'm the full blown spooky aunt. So come on! Take your best shot Mary Poppins!" I'm sure Julia said that in that one pin heady movie. Or maybe this is just my take on it.
