That is really the only way that today can be described. Blame it on hormones, too many cookies, or just a lack of patience, today can suck it.  I’m not normally a grumpy person. In fact, I usually get the feedback that my perkiness level could use a little dialing down. Today, I am just in a grumpy mood.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people fail to meet basic expectations-on life, on promises, or just in general at functioning as a entry level adult. It’s not really hard-put on your big boy/girl pants, take a shower and get your shit-show on the road. Don’t make promises that you can’t and won’t keep, and don’t make promises that are conditional. It makes you..well…It makes you a damn asshat, for a lack of a better word. I seem to be running into situations where when push comes to shove, and grown up decisions are being made, people bail. It happens, but it seems to be happening a lot.

Deeeeeeep Exhale. Ok. Now that’s off of my shoulders and out of my head…updates!!!

Now that football season is officially behind us, and the sun has been coming out more, its time to get out and get gardening! I started some lettuce and pac choy this weekend, and started to map out the garden beds. The chickens have been doing their best to keep the weeds in check, and I am enjoying hearing their happy little clucks as they have their dirt bath.

I’m closer to finishing a quilt, but the one that I have been working on for years sits to the side. I think I have hit a place that I am feeling stuck, so I’ll probably just put it away to pull it out at a later date.

There’s some other changes in the works, but I am not quite ready to get into them, its all good stuff, just waiting for now.

Hope all is well, and your level of asshattery is at a minimum.


No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we’re looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn’t test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
