The computer is still not fixed. Mostly because I never disconnected it and gave it to Curt to take in. I did manage to uninstall the security system, and things are working lovely right now albeit without any protection. The computer is naked. Nekid, as we say in these parts.
Friday, I threw SuperKid Screamer in the sling and started making dinner. I went to the trash. It was (still- like, from before vacation) full. So, I pushed down to make some room… and nearly lost my right pinky finger on a can of corn. Now, that can of corn should have been in the recycling, not the trash: Mistake #1. The trash should have been emptied days ago, like when we returned from our trip Sunday night and declared it a major contributor to The Smell: Mistake #2. And, I should not have been cleaning as I went along my merry dinner way… stick to your routine, Kate!: Mistake #3.
Bah. So, maybe I fainted a teensy bit and hit the floor. I was fine… I could hear Rylie say, “Boom” as I sat down, so I never went completely out. Just seriously woozy. I did call Curt and managed to freak him out. Two minutes later our neighbor screeched into our driveway with her National Guard son and a First Aid kit to bandage me up. I was well enough to ask for a Hello Kitty band-aid, which he didn’t have, so really- I was fine.
It’s a nasty cut, though. It’s one of those um- maybe you should have gotten some stitches but there’s not really time for that and also IT’S YOUR PINKY get over it kind of things. But, like a paper cut, it’s annoying as all get out.
2. Amber made Tillie a birthday outfit and used the bloomer leg ruffle tute I wrote up. Fabulous. [Please remember that I am not a pattern drafter or sewer. I am a Wing It ‘Til It’s Right kind of gal. The fact that these came out as pants AT ALL thrills me.]
3. This photo that church took of Rylie Girl. Oh my word. It was part of her Sunday School Mother’s Day present and I just cannot even stand it. What a rugrat. What an absolutely perfect rugrat. This was obviously taken on a Sunday when Gideon and I did not make it to church… look at those bangs!
Thursday. People. It’s time for TexasNorth t-shirts. Be thinking of a one-liner for the farm! We need a tag line… that’s your job. Thursday.
