Random Tid Bits

  1. This little bug was inside my work. I just couldn't kill it, and didn't want to deal with getting something to put it on to put it back outside. I just took a photo of it instead.

  2. One of my best students is so nosey. She asked me about another student. Did so and so graduate? Did she just walk, for graduation? Did she have to take a summer class? Is she really joining us to get her BFA? Just reading what I just wrote makes me tired. I responded back with, So and so did graduate. If you have other questions talk with so and so. I also mentioned that people do in fact change, and to give this girl another chance. Hopefully I handled that well. 

  3. I have this horrible habit of freezing when I'm unable to do what I set out to do. Facebook and Instagram wouldn't upload my pictures for a review. Most people would move on. I told myself to move on. Instead I kept trying, and practically froze up with getting anything else done. It would be horrible, for me if the whole internet crashed. Not that I wouldn't find something else to do, it's just that I'd keep trying to see if I could hop on the internet over and over again knowing full well it doesn't work. 

  4. Fresh Farms - formally The Fruit Truck was in town delivering peaches and cherries. I told my family about it (mistake number 1).

    My younger sister went out of town. She said, "Can you pick up a small box of cherries and peaches for me?" I didn't mind, and did. I said to Travis, "Since she was out of town, she'll probably want me to deliver the fruit to her house. Heck she may even want me to process it for her. I didn't think this through. I already hauled my ass out of bed, stood in line, paid for them, and hauled the heavy boxes around for her."

    He said, "She wouldn't want you to do all that." I texted her how much it was, and asked, "When are you going to come get them?" She responded with, "Saturday. If they ripen before then can you wash them, and put them in my freezer?" I didn't respond back. Usually I'm a Yes Yes person, and I'm trying to change that. My husband thinks I say, Yes too much! It's not a big deal in one sense, but in another it happens all the time. If her kid left something at my house - she wants me to drop it off. If my kid left something at her house - I have to go get it, or it will be lost for forever.

    Are you a Yes Yes person?

  5. We had a Lemonade Sale last weekend. The boys made $30 each, totally $60! Not bad! Travis had a bunch of frozen strawberries in a cooler, to make more Strawberry Lemonade. He forgot about them. Many bags busted open, so they were all sticky. We ended up making Strawberry Jam, so we didn't have to throw them out. It took most of the evening, but we now have 25 jars of Strawberry Jam.

That is a stink bug.

Good call on making the berried into jam. I used to be a yes, yes person. I am definitely not anymore. It's liberating.

I killed a stinkbug once. It took forever for that icky smell to go away, so never again. Now, I just let them crawl onto my finger and flick them out the door.

I used to be a yes person. Since getting sick though, I find I say no more often these days. I've learned that people will never give you the same courtesy that you give them, so I don't go out of my way anymore. Like Rosey said, it's truly liberating!
