Come and Sit a Spell

Kids and Josh went into the rainforest. I popped a squat on a bench with this view

There’s a bench (not an industrial bench) at the Topeka Zoo that I will sit at when Josh takes the kids into the rainforest. I can’t go in there unless I have to because the smell and humidity make me sick to my stomach and causes a major head.

So I sit outside, and wait. I have some quiet time to reflect on what is the meaning of life (42). I listen to the sounds of the birds inside the rainforest building. I hear the honking of the geese. I hear laughter of kids on a nearby playground.

It’s a peaceful feeling, though I am wishing that I was inside, enjoying the wonder of my kids’ enjoyment of the birds and animals. The ability to spend the rest of the day with my family, though missing those few moments, is worth more than seeing those few moments and feeling them ruined moments later when I feel the need to just crawl under the covers, with my trusty bucket friend. Just in case I don’t make it to the bathroom in time.

Just shoot me now


Oh holy crap! That’s freaking HOT! It’s hot enough that I’m willing to put an ugly sun visor thing in my truck Surprised smile So glad that we retooled how air is circulated in the apartment. It’s currently a comfy 76F in the apartment. A/C hasn’t really shut off, but it’s not working as hard as it usually is. Also, we’re not completely baking ourselves!

We have a big round “box” fan style in Ethan’s room (which is the warmest), 3 tower fans in other rooms (living room, and the other two bedrooms), and a little tiny floor one that’s designed for shops and garages in the hallway! It also has a little surge protector built into it! Sweet, right? $48 at Wal-Mart, on sale right now!

Otherwise, nothing much is going on! We went to Wal-Mart at 9am (that’s early for us, Laughing out loud). Then we came home, put trash bags full of clothes into the truck, and took them to Goodwill Open-mouthed smile. Afterwards, we went to the OTHER Wal-Mart and picked up the little fan, as well as some ant bait. With the heat rising, ants are looking for food Winking smile We have kids, and not so clean, respectful neighbors. Neighbor’s kid like to eat ice cream right in front of our apartment, including making a huge ass mess with it. So, we have to pay Winking smile, but it’s not that bad. It makes me go “Do I want an ant in my soda, or will I drink some water?” I end up with the water (or a 20-oz., which defeats the purpose Rolling on the floor laughing).

How are you keeping cool this summer? And for those on the other end of the world, warm?

My cute kiddos, while we’re in line at Wal-Mart. I get the best pictures when we’re out and about, so I’m glad my phone has a “decent” camera on it Winking smile

Hello Headache


Apparently, it looks like I have Barometric Pressure Headaches. Oh the fun of living with my head.

In the summer, I get dehydration headaches because of the heat and me not drinking enough.
In the winter, I have headaches because … I have no idea why. Lots of low pressure systems. And crappy sinuses
Spring is LOTS of allergies and low pressure systems.
The fall just sucks. I hate the fall. No, not really. Not as many headaches in the fall Smile

So, I need to live in the eternal fall. Know where I can find one?
