This morning I got attacked by a bird if you’re wondering how my day is going so far.
There’s a sign at the outdoor pool entrance that says a nesting bird is swooping people who walk by – and lo, she swooped me good today. Right into my pony tail. 🙂
Poor thing, trying to protect her babies who are probably learning how to fly and unable to do so with all the families on summer vacation coming and going to the pool all day…
Also, my house is a mess in case you’re wondering how else my day is going so far. The unpacked suitcases with all the stuff I have to organize, stash and put away are all over every surface on the main floor. 😬
We had to do laundry the other day because people have tournaments this weekend but it kept raining, only for about 10 minutes at a time, but just enough time for things to get wet again. I had it hanging outside, the laundry, because we haven’t had time to call a guy to fix the dryer.
Oh and the air conditioner wasn’t working either when we got back from Switzerland, which meant I had to go up into the stifling, sticky attic where you cannot stand in a full upright position and locate the fans. I usually keep them close by the pull down ladder but someone else put them away and they didn’t remember where so I had to descend again, locate a flashlight to shine into the deep, dark corners, crawl around until I found them, then take them down one at a time without any help from anyone else.
Yes I’m in a bad mood, so sue me.
The boys were still here when I got back from dog walking. This did not please me. I took them at face value when they said they’d be gone by 1230. I thought I could colour my hair in peace with everyone out of the house and then get this place organized. My girl was with friends at the pool for the afternoon, so I was hopeful to get things accomplished before the jet lag hits me again.
You know how you get so much more done when no one is here?
So I told everyone goodbye when I left to walk Jasper, only to find them lazying around plugged in around the house when I got back 45 minutes later.
“We’re going now,” they said and proceeded to ask me if I knew where x or y items were.
The good news however was that Darren had been by (our HVAC guy) and all is fixed. I get to sleep in a humidity free house tonight. 😄
Anyway they’re gone now, the baseball people.
But all the chocolate I brought back from Switzerland is taunting me so if I don’t blog for a while it’ll be because I’m in a diabetic coma. 🙄
Vacation memories will resume…soon. 😊
