EVILBOY is on his way home today. So glad he wasn't here last night during that big storm, or I would have been a little more afraid. That was one of the worst storms I have seen in a while. At one point when I did get a little nervous, I called my mom, but the reception was wonky - that made me a little more nervous. When I finally did get to speak with her, she was at bingo during a power failure. At bingo. No power - grumpy mom.
I sometimes feel guilty for sending EVILBOY away for most of the summer, but the truth is, he got to do so many things that I wouldn't have been able to do with him and he got to visit family that we wouldn't have been able to see for the whole entire summer. One of the hardest things about being a single parent and working full time is not being able to have the finances or time to travel and visit family. I am very grateful for the things EVILBOY got to do, even if I did miss him a whole bunch!
I spent most of the time re-organizing his room. Making it a little more grown up. Putting away all the baby things that I liked (well most of them anyway!). When I was done, the room felt so empty. It didn't have reminders of him playing in it - and it smelt like cheap pine, not little boy. It was kind of sad.
|I love this carpet. It was only $3 at a garage sale. Best. Find. Ever!|
|The jar of super heroes and the disgusting vat of grow dinos|
|Those are original EVILBOY works of art over there. They really bring the room together, don't you think? Also see: Messy bookshelf - makes EVILFLU go crazy - don't mind if I do!!!|
|We did have a casualty. HERMAN the crab decided to croak. It was so sad to find his little body all withered and out of the shell *nightmares*. He did live a very long life though, which was quite surprising to me. Unfortunately I must break the news to EVILBOY when he gets home. I will let him pick another little critter (hopefully not a crab) to put in his tank if he chooses to do so.|

Hello..this is my blog. I bought this fancy theme and I don't know what to write here just yet. Maybe one day remind me I have to write something inspiring here?
