I returned home to the family today (after spending a few days at mom’s) with a car full of groceries.
The puppy went berserk. 😄 Good thing I left the bags in the car at first, since I was getting mauled immediately upon entering. 🙄

My back’s been sore for days now. So finally today I decided a bath with Epsom salts might help me out a bit. This was after my exercises, and the 2+ hours of using the tens system while writing at the dining table.

Today I looked up the expression
The bane of my existence.
I didn’t really know what it meant, so I wanted to ensure I was using it in the correct context.
I’m typing this on mobile with the index finger of my right hand because my wrist hurts.
Also my ass, and my left ankle are sore as well, if you must know.

Does this title mean anything to anyone?
It doesn’t to the humans around here. Nor to furry creatures, either. Like this dude here:
Tucker the Beagle puppy about 10 weeks old.
Tucker on Grandma’s lap about 13 weeks old.

My still teacherless child has been watching youtube videos on how to make space buns.
Space buns is a thing you do with hair. A type of hairstyle. Did you know this?

Here’s the (not so) short version of what consumes my life at the moment:
Tucker at 10 weeks.
I slipped on the wet back porch, fell and landed in puppy poop this morning. He pooped on the deck, not on the grass. The deck is raised. We have to go down five steps to reach the lawn.

The end of 2020 will mark many endings, and a few new beginnings.
Redirect me to this statement next time I sound exasperated, exhausted, depressed, anxious or confused. (Basically every 15 minutes or so.) 😉
Something’s gotta give. So I’m writing down my master plan, a sort of directional instruction guide.

Yesterday I had 20 minutes to myself. The entire day. Which began at 5 am.
I’m always up early. Mornings are my quiet time to write, or read. Except not now, because…puppy.
Me and 9 week old poop machine.

This morning I got kicked out of the bedroom at 6.
“Go sit in the kitchen,” he said.
I was disturbing him with a slight cough.

I live a weird life.
I’m sure you’re not surprised at this revelation… 🙄
Sunday morning coffee at mom’s.
Allow me to elaborate:
I live in two main residences. #spoiled
There’s the house I co-own with the kids’ dad, and there’s the home I grew up in where my mom lives.
I travel back and forth between both houses almost every week…
Here’s the thing:
I like this arrangement. 😳 #weird
