My head feels like a huge cluster fuck. I have so many things I want to get done, neigh, NEED to get done, and I don’t know where to begin. Or something holds me back from getting something done, for instance, we are out of gasoline, so I can’t mow the lawn. Well, finish mowing the lawn. I started yesterday and ran out, which was a real bummer and a half.
Our kitchen is half-way finished. We started the “re-design” last weekend. Tore off the crap that was on the walls (I forget what it is called, it starts with a “T” it’s hard and plastic like) then discovered we have to put up new dry wall where the plastic crap was covering huge holes in the wall! Fuck me! That wasn’t in the plan! Of course, we didn’t have enough money to go out and buy more dry wall and everything else that goes with putting up new walls… So my kitchen/dining room is half way done and the other half is in shambles and it is driving me nuts! (Because that whole OCD thing, ya know?) So, I have that going for me.
Then our back yard is a mess. I want it all cut down and cleared out. But I can’t work in the heat and I can’t do a lot of strenuous work on my own (because I always seem to fuck up my back and end up in 3 – 6 months of physical therapy for that! Thank you arthritis!) So, I am at the mercy of my husband to get that done. This weekend he has a graduation party to go to. So, there goes my yard getting done. It would have to get started in the a.m., because it is supposed to be hotter than Hades this weekend. But yeah… I don’t foresee that getting done. Then the weekend after that is fathers day, and I don’t want him to do anything on fathers day. So, who knows when all of this crap is going to get done. And when things irritate me, the center of my back hurts. I feel like a snail must feel when you pour salt on it.
I get to go to the grocery tonight. Yay.
But in good news, I have my big 4-0 birthday planned! I’m going to the casino with my best friend, and possibly her sister and my sister. Haven’t heard back from my mom yet. We are going to the Rising Star in Rising Sun Indiana. I have never been there. My bestie says it is smaller than the Holllywood, and not as crowded. And since we are going on a Monday, I think it will be pretty quiet. Will take pictures and what not of the festivities. That all happens on the 18th. So in essence, I will get 2 birthdays! One with my girls, an then one on my actual birthdate, the 20th. I am hoping for a Kindle Fire, but we will see if I get it. I dunno if the hubby is going to say me going to the casino is my gift or not.
So, I think I am going to get dressed, and go out and try to do some yard clean up while it is cool outside.
