The Good: This morning the boys were in the yard when I heard them barking like crazy! Because they are such vicious killers I was concerned for the safety of whatever was trespassing on our little piece of land. So I rushed outside ready to defend whatever hapless creature wandered into their territory, only find a tortoise. Yep that’s right; a tortoise was the cause of all the ruckus. I love turtles and tortoises, so it pretty much made my morning. Yesterday when I was leaving for work I noticed one next to my car getting ready to cross the road, which seemed like a very bad idea so I picked it up and moved it into the side yard. I wonder if it’s the same one.
The Bad: The fucking roof is leaking. Not the end of the world I know, but just one more thing to take care of. Buying a house may seem like a great idea for a single girl, but trust me only if it’s brand new and has a very small yard. Otherwise you’ll be like me mowing 1/3 of an acre and dealing with the little things that go wrong with older homes, when all you really want to be spending your time on it reading, knitting, watching some TV, hanging out friends, blogging, surfing the net, and oh yeah, running your own business on the side! Grrrrrrr!
The Ugly: I want a cigarette and I want it now! Right now! I’ve have one or two when out drinking since I quit, but this is different. I want to start smoking again. I like it! When I’m having a crappy moment it makes me feel better. I know it smells, causes my skin to wrinkle faster, may cause cancer is bad for my lungs and other parts of me, I just don’t care! Ok I do care a bit or I wouldn’t have quit. But I swear if I had one wish it would be that smoking was good for you.
