Now, for all those who remember that 70's hit Funky Town you will be hearing that song in your head for the rest of the day.
After some of the covers y'all have been subjecting me to, this is the least I could do in return.
Funny how that song is upbeat though because I hit a funk today that took the wind out of my sails. I headed back to bed for a nap because nothing was going right. Also, sometimes those meds back up in the system and I need a day of sleep so that was probably part of it.
Pool - phffffft. Stupid murky looking, can't get the friggin' water to pump out so I can vacuum the dark spots I can see through the murk in the shallow end - uh pool. I can only imagine what is in the deep end. We threw the hose in and filled the puppy to the top because when you turn this thing on backwash - WOW!! I'm probably going to end up emptying half the pool once I can see the damn dead algae so I can vacuum (alliteration - love it!). Have I mentioned it's an 18 X 40 pool with a deep end? Our last pool was a pond compared to this whale of a pool! 140 000 liters and since I'm Canadian I'm not converting that to gallons because - well, I'm dumb. Actually I think you would just divide by 4 to get a rough guesstimate sooo, 35 000 gallons? I'm gonna check a conversion site because that doesn't sound right ... okay, 37 000. I'm not as dumb as I thought.
To keep this post from becoming an epic tome I will try to keep my inane inner thoughts from falling onto the keyboard.
Wait. That won't work.
The Other House - that's how I am going to refer to it from now on because it has become a pain in my ass. Bob was there while I was asleep today and surprised me with all the work he had done so 'tada!! We don't have to work here today!!'. Uhhhh. Bob got all his stuff done. I still have to paint and clean. Grrrr.
So tomorrow is NOT the official new house day.
Then I called my best friend and layed (laid?) the 'best friend card' that she pulled out on me that one day. Guess what? It didn't work!! I needed her to come to the house and help me paint and clean and she was all, well, I'm kinda looking after other kids and what would we do about my kids and ... crap!!! So I'm bitchy enough right now to say that I will no longer be available to other people on 'their whim'. Not having kids seems to make me an easy target to play taxi, babysitter etc. but NO MORE!! Like Sue said at the end of the conversation 'I feel bad because you never say no to us.'
Yep, I'm being a bitchy schmuck at this moment and I hope you won't hold this against me okay? Cause I love kids and being with my friends and stuff, I'm just feeling like an elephant is sitting on my shoulder.
Okay, I'm not standing all slanted to one side so maybe it's clinging to my back.
Yeah, that's better.
There's an elephant on my friggin' back!!
I know!! What will I be like if I have to ever deal with a real problem.
If I had time to read I would be reading Twelve Sharp by Evanovich.
