New Motto

I have a new Motto that I've been chanting this weekend.  "We'll figure it out."  There are tons of changes going on in the household, things that are so unsettled, I am not going to put them out there just yet.  Know that they are good ones, for good reasons.  Not without their own drama but with the attitude of "we'll figure it out" in place, the drama will be ok and worth it.

I was run out of my living room this weekend by the Boys.  AZ's son came for a visit and Jakes was here this weekend.  I got up late Sunday morning to find every sittable space in the living room taken up by boys, even AZ and Jaxon were taking up space.  I laughed over it and went back to bed with my book for a while.  It was nice to have a full house this weekend.  I'm hoping for more of the same in the future.

Jakes and I went to see The Lorax in 3D Sunday afternoon.  It was a perfect rainy day for it.  Jakes loves the movie.  I napped.  Like I said, Perfect!

The Parents are coming home from Camping today.  They were on vacation away from us but I still heard from Dad each day they were gone.  Um, the reason for vacation is to get away, so leave me alone!  Enjoy your time away from us.

I'm a little disgruntled with life in The Compound at the moment.  Dad and Renie have taken it upon themselves to make sure Kathy gets lunch and dinner each day.  They usually go out to the local diner for both meals.  When Dad and Renie go away, that responsibility seems to fall to me.  I don't know when it was decided that I would babysit Kathy when they go away.  And why me?  None of the other tenants of the Compound seem to be elected to babysit Kathy.  Dolores does volunteer and I appreciate it very much.

Also when Dad and Renie are away, everyone comes to me for handyman stuff.  Like Dolores's cable box had water in it and she didn't know where it was coming from so she asked me up to check it out.  We found out that the water was coming from the cable itself and there wasn't anything I could do to help her out with it.

Then Dad texts me to make sure the trash cans are put out for pick up today.  Really?  Do you think you should have made arrangements for someone to do your job before 10 pm the night before it had to be done?

I guess I just want to live like a regular tenant, pay the rent, say hi in the yard and maybe share a cook out once in a while.  I'm suffocating here.  Might be time to move and see what's out in the world.  Guess I'll have to talk this over with AZ and see what his plans are.

Have an application due on Thursday so I have to get started on that.  Have a good week everyone!


  1. I so wouldn't want those responsibilities falling on me either.

    Oh, it's pretty cute that the boys took all of your seating up this weekend. :)

  2. Sounds like it's time to leave the Compound (you know I always think of WACO when I read that right? lol, don't drink the koolaid Amy!!)

    I think being within 5 hours of my parents will be too close, and I admit I'm more of the hi-neighbor-please-don't-talk-to-me type of person.

    Ugh, neighbor-people. Yuck! ;)

  3. Glad to see there were survivors : )

    Have a great week!

  4. kinda glad i live an hour from my fam...i can help out and they too but def dont feel the need to have to if know....and i like the go with the flow attitude

  5. We really liked The Lorax. Fun movie.

  6. When you say you napped was it during the movie? lol

    It seems that things are going pretty good for you. :)

  7. glad to hear that things are going pretty good for you.
    i really liked what you said in the last line..." might be time to move and see what's out in the world!"

    big hugs!


Leave me some seeds
