Such a baby.  I love this boy so much.

Sometimes I just don't even know what to say.  That's where I was was night and right now when trying to deal with my brother.

Our family grew again a couple of weeks ago.  I've been told I can't have any more piggys.

I feel like I have not been in a very good head space over the past few weeks. 

I haven't been eating well.  I haven't been feeling good, probably because I'm not eating well.  I had a slight meltdown yesterday after a week where it felt like nothing was going the way it was supposed to.  I got that out of my system and felt a lot better. 

I just know though that I'm not coming across to other people very well. 

We've spent the past two weeks learning how to be guinea pig parents.  Love this little guy so much!

Well.....3 afternoons this week and I've been down to the River stage in search of pokemon. And so far I'm at 94 caught/94 seen. 

I probably should be doing something more productive.  But I have done some laundry.  Does that count?

I cannot wait until Monday the 18th when my summer job will be over.  Not only is this a most miserable program (it has gotten a little better, but not much), it will be nice to have a few weeks to take care of issues as they arise.  I'm really sure that I have something stuck in my rear tire, but I didn't have time to stay at the tire place yesterday because they were so backed up and we are so short staffed and stressed at work that I just couldn't.  I should have because my tire has been losing air even faster since yesterday.  I have an appointment t today after work, but I'm still a little nervous.

This summer has been quite an experience in more ways than one.  For the first time in my life I almost walked off my job three times over two weeks.  Had air conditioning woes for almost a week and a half.  Just have had major warfare going on in my heart.  Not a good feeling.  Life and I are kind of at a point of understanding and acceptance now though.  I weathered the most recent atoms and will keep doing it.

I'm taking a little time this weekend to earn some extra cash working at a fireworks stand.  It's owned by a gentleman from my church who gives members the chance to earn some money on the side.   I'm really interested to see how this goes.  I feel like about 10 years of retail probably has not prepared me for whatever needs to be done this weekend.  But I'm up for a challenge.  Just hoping I don't hold anyone back while I learn the ropes.  I'm earning money to go spend a couple days with Amber in July.  I miss her.

More "one step forward, two steps back"

I finally just took on the job of getting in things in our apartment fixed up.  Caleb would make one call or text, and then let it go, and then get frustrated that noone called him back.  But the fridge has been leaking for three weeks now, and the new toilet was leaking again, and he never did get a response about the sink.  So I just said I was doing it, and within two hours I had someone at the apartment talking to him about stuff.  I don't feel good about that, but something needed to be done.  We're getting a new refrigerator on Monday, the sink piping will be replaced, and the wax seal or something on the toilet will be replaced.  Maybe even able to take care of the window birds, who are still very chirpy when they are hungry.

But then our air conditioner officially died so I get to be like "Thanks for taking care of all that!  Now I need this!"  That doesn't make me feel good either.

It is making noise, and the fan part blows when it wants to.  But it isn't strong, and it's definitely not cold.  It is currently 84 degrees in here, and while I have two fans on in the bedroom, I'm still not "comfortable".  I got a couple hours of sleep, but it's hard to sleep well when you are dripping sweat.  At 3:41 am it is 84 degrees in the living room.  When I came ho,e from work it was hotter than 88 degrees in here (thermostat stops there).if I'm dying now, there is no way Caleb will sleep well during the hottest part of the day.

So hopefully I can reach Mike again tomorrow, and he's able to get us in contact with someone.  I have a phone number for a heating/air place he gave us about something before, but I don't know if they are open weekends or not.  We may stay tomorrow night in a hotel if nothing is fixed.  Which has the potential to be a nice break, mini-date, but if Caleb hasn't slept well, it won't be all that great.

I have a rental car for the next week, and I've already put a scratch in it.  #fail.
