Messed Up

There was a bathroom break along about daylight. I crawled back into bed and prayed my way back to sleep. When I woke again, it was almost 8:30. I was definitely not rising and shining.

My computer was hibernating when I checked it first thing. That was strange. Later, Genese’s daughter, Kimberly, posted on Facebook that there was a two hour planned power outage during the night. Mystery solved. However, now only half of my lights in the kitchen will come on. I want to replace them with LED tubes but the ones that use the fixtures as they are cost $35 each so four of them plus tax would be over $150. I wouldn’t be assured that the ballast is still good in the one that isn’t working, either.

It was late enough when I got in the sun that Big’Un and I had to station ourselves much farther over than we usually do. The clouds were playing peek-a-boo so I stayed an extra few minutes to make sure I got my 15 in.

DD called and left voice mail. I didn’t hear the phone ring. She called my Google Voice number so there’s a good chance it didn’t come through to the MagicJack. I called her back almost an hour later and we talked for five minutes less than a half hour.

She’d been with her boyfriend’s family last week and some of them viewed her as exceedingly weird because she doesn’t eat meat. BF’s father seems to think it’s a passing fancy. I can assure him it isn’t. She admits to being curious sometimes but when she thinks about actually dining on a dead body, it grosses her out.

My mess-up-ed-ness has followed me through the day. I failed to take my NAC this morning so I’ll only get two doses in instead of three.

No one (but me) was around to feed the critters so after I took care of them, I sat in the sun for 15 more minutes. Big’Un came over and wanted to be petted. He’d rear up on his hind legs and butt my hand with his head. I relented and petted him and one of the Catz came over and nuzzled my foot. One of these days, I may be mobbed.

Sunning time over, I came in and got my camera to take pictures of my front yard. Wouldn’t you know, when I snapped the first one, the batteries went. When I got my supply out, there were exactly four in the package. I’ll have to order more. I use the Amazon brand and they do just as well as Duracell or Energizer. I have them on subscription which cuts down on the price. However, I don’t see where they’re offered that way any more.

Well, here are the pictures of the “Bad House” that’s finishing itself off. I guess it figures if no one will tear it down, it will just fall. And people wonder why I’m ashamed of where I live.

Falling Down

My Beautiful Front Yard

The Ruins

People are so focused on the mess they don’t realize there’s a house behind it all. I guess I’m hidden, at least.

Twinkle has had lap time today. The cooler weather is making it possible. It also makes for good sleeping which is what I should be doing soon.

    The house looks like someone has been taking it down in stages and neatly stacking lumber that can be used again – at least it looks like that in your pictures.

      But the last stage was so long ago, the neatly stacked lumber is rotting.

    I guess it’s a good thing you live in a different house now, right?

      Well, YES!! 😛
