Welcome to Tuesday’s recap of Monday! My husband asked me last night if I did stuff, just so that I’d have pictures to take. I had to answer him honestly: Yes, yes I did! I don’t care how that sounds. It’s the truth!
First, I want to say that I have 145 pictures for Monday. No, I’m not going to share them all. A lot of them are duplicates and triplicates because I was trying to get the best shot. I don’t have my page done yet (I haven’t even started but I’ll have either later today, in a separate blog post, or I’ll have it on Tuesday’s blog post).
The Best Thing About Monday: I got almost all of the laundry done.
The Worst Thing About Monday: In the process of doing laundry, I dropped my favorite camera (my Point-and-shoot) into the washer. It’s heartbreaking. The camera is working, for the most part, but the lens is gone. 🙁
First picture of the day. My handsome husband on his way to work. No matter how much pretreater we use, he still has those spots there on all of his shirts. So, we’ve given up. It’s because of how his satchel rides when he’s carrying the mail. Also, have you SEEN how dirty mail can be. Eww!!
My pretty Canon Powershot A3400IS that took a dunk in the washing machine. I love her. She’s so pretty. I’m hoping that if I leave it in the rice for a few more days, the lens might dry out. We’ll see.
My view from the bus stop. The building is mine, the one I’m looking at. The red Trailblazer with the flipflops on the backseat window? That’s mine. I love my truck. She’s a sweetie. Yes, most of the electronics and vehicles are female to me. 😀
And then, fifteen or so minutes after the kids are off to school, the beauty hits the water. Please, keep my camera in your thoughts. I mean, I wouldn’t MIND a new camera (I’m looking at the Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS 16.1 MP Wi-Fi Enabled CMOS Digital Camera with 5x Zoom 24mm Wide-Angle Lens with 1080p Full HD Video and 3.2-Inch Touch Panel LCD), but I still love this one, too!
I took this picture of a favorite picture of mine. This is my baby sister (who’s birthday is tomorrow! She turns 24!!) and our Pappaw. He’s in the hospital right now, in the end stages of cancer. I live 8 hours away, and I can’t go see him. It’s killing me that I’m not able to see him. The pain was made worse by a very rude person on Facebook nitpicking what I had written. A friend on Plurk had the best response about it:
While there may not be five stages of cancer, there are five stages of grief and while you share your impending loss with your timeline, only a person with 0 stages of empathy would nitpick.
Ahh! So much better. If you can’t tell, there used to be drawers there. They were constantly falling off the tracks, both of them, so I said “eff it”, and pulled them out. The space is better utilized as a storage place for my shoes. I’m noticing, if you don’t take my flip-flops into account, I only have 3 pairs of brown shoes. The rest are black. Though I do have the two-tone black and grey heels, but still! At least I don’t have to worry about my shoes never matching 😉
I knew that Tuesday I was going to want some iced coffee (made in my wonderful Keurig). Well, my husband uses the ice cubes each morning for his water jug (heat indexes in the triple digits and the like, and he has a 10-hour walking route (that he didn’t make), so he NEEDS the water!), and they don’t freeze in an hour. So, I used a wonderful silicone ice cube tray that I got from PopSugar. I just love these cubes! It’s like THREE “normal” sized cubes in one!
I had ramen for lunch. It gave me the worst heartburn, and that’s after half of it fell into the sink as I was trying to drain some of the water out. sad face I was watching a Let’s Play video by Llandros09 on YouTube, and was editing videos. If you like Let’s Plays, his is truly ones of the best to watch.
This is what happens when I try to take a selfie in the bathroom mirror. I need to get one for over my longer dresser in the bedroom. It came with one, but it destroyed itself because of the crappy way it was made (who puts a huge mirror on PARTICLE board?).
