Random Tid Bits

  1. Every time I leave my driveway I have a huge blind spot. Big sunflowers are in my way of me seeing. Who puts sunflowers right where people need to see? My neighbor's two houses down do. 

  2. We're double booked on Sunday. We have my mom's side - family reunion that day. Then Travis' uncle texted him to say he'll be in town. We hardly have family from Travis' side reach out to us, or want to get together. We're doing both. Instead of going to the reunion for lunch and on, we're going around breakfast to lunch. Then we can spend a few hours with his uncle. Have you gotten double booked any time this summer?

  3. A new guy started as the role of Education Director when I left for vacation. He was off the week I got back because the Director was on vacation then. I have to admit I was pretty annoyed that I hadn't gotten my syllabi back from being proof read. They've been done, since May! It was my fault - sort of. They were in my junk folder. With my 2 home emails I know to check my junk folder. At work nothing goes in my junk folder. I really only get internal emails. I felt bad about accusing him of not sending them to me. I said I was sorry, once I figured out where they were hiding. 

  4. Mrs Clean Freak has continued to give me tasks to do, but I'm not quite as annoyed as I was. I don't mind being told what to do. I just don't like little to do lists thrown my way. It makes me feel small in some odd sort of way. I also didn't like when she would give me things to do, but she herself wasn't doing anything.

    I won't have to worry about Mrs Clean Freak very much longer, as she put in her notice. 

  5. Travis has been working his butt off on a sculpture. I'm pretty sure he's annoyed some neighbors on the block. Grind, grind, grinding on metal is an annoying sound that I've gotten very good at blocking out. At least he'll soon have a piece to add to his site soon. Do you have any projects in the works - not just art, but home projects?

Be thankful it's just sunflowers. My next door neighbor has a humongous RV that blocks my entire street view. Not only that, since we are the last house on the court and nobody can see our house because of their huge monstrosity, our house is at risk for home burglary. They will pay to store it come November, but they bring it back out again in April. It really chaps my hide that they only use it for a week or two during the summer, then it just sits there the rest of the time. GRRRRR!

I'm so jealous of Travis. I want to be working on a sculpture. But probably with clay. Just love the feeling of "stuff" in my hands. And then the act of sculpting with dental tools? So fun! Unfortunately, sculpting with clay (and really any material) is so messy and I'm trying to clean and organize. Maybe one day I'll get back to it.

Have you considered taking some sheers to the neighbor's sunflowers? ;) Or, do you have an hoa?

Glad to hear Mrs. Clean Freak is annoying you less and on her way out. :)

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and getting to see all of the family!

bahahahah Theresa said, 'chaps my hide.' Love her!!

We're in a condo up high right now, so I don't have to worry about blocked views. Hopefully we'll be in a house soon and then I will hope no one's blocking our view from the driveway. ;)

I love sunflowers, but who puts them on the street edge like that? Makes me want to say, 'duh.' :)

Ms. Neatfreak is leaving??? No more 'clean this now' lists, woohooo!

I love love LOVE sunflowers!!! Their location is kinda stupid though... hopefully they didn't think about it.

Happy Neatfreak is outta there :)
