Manic Monday… and Sunday… and Saturday…

Monday, May 18, 2015

Things have been crazy in my neck of the woods lately.  Seriously.  I'm just waiting for life to slow down so that I can catch my breath.  Case and point: I took photos of this outfit 3 weeks ago, and just never got around to posting.  Some other crazy things that have happened over the last few days: 

Saturday: Dance recital.  I had 8 classes dancing and I danced with 2 of my upper level classes. No need to say more. 

Sunday: Was looking forward to resting my old arthritic knees, but after taking a nice bath in Epsom salts, my power went out.  Freaked out because I had no internet and my phone isn't working.  Drove to work to stash all of the perishable meats and dairy products (I really should consider going vegan) food that I'd just picked up at the store in the fridge at work.  Drove home, ended up getting the power fixed (had no food), and sleuthed around to figure out that when I ran my relaxing bath, water leaked through the floor, down the wall on the floor below and fried the socket that my dryer is plugged into.  Yay, water damage and a dead dryer. That was enough for that day. 

Monday: Woke up to a mysterious pile of rocks in the middle of my kitchen.  They weren't there at bedtime and as far as I know, no one came into the house overnight.  Very mysterious.  Once I was done freaking out about this, I hopped in the car super early to beat construction traffic on my way to work.  However, the road to work was closed and I had to drive all the way home (with a dead phone and almost no gas, mind you) to go the complete opposite way to get to work.  It took me an hour to do what should have taken 20 minutes tops.  And then there were those fun arthritic knees.  I think I ended up in tears about 3 times while teaching my morning gymnastics classes.  Things calmed down as the day progressed, and for that, I am ever thankful.  

Now, time to skip a bath so I don't blow a fuse, eat some Oreos, and climb into bed early.   

I apologize for the rant.  But I feel so much better now!

    1. So weird. After further investigation, I've decided that they must have been Thin Mint crumbs that I didn't notice crumbling off after a midnight cookie run!
