I never disappoint

Day one of my holidays and I am awake at 4 a.m.
In part I had to pee but there was a small part of me that was awake.
I managed to go back to sleep until 5 a.m.
Debated and finally arose when I realized I can take a nap whenever I want to.
Yesterday was an exciting day in the Doerksen household.
I received several packages and was so delighted.
Carted everything into the apartment.
Cat food and cat litter.
Packages from the car.
Amazon box from in front of the door.
Move everything down and into the kitchen.
I begin to put away the groceries.
When I remember the clothes in the dryer and go run it another ten minutes to shake out any wrinkles that had settled.
Clothes in washer.
Oh yeah more laundry.
Start the load.
Back into the kitchen.
What was I doing?
Oh yeah……
Wait where is the other bag?
I had…..
oh yeah there it is.
Rinse cycle needs fabric softener.
Clothes on bed catches my eye.
Wander in and begin to fold.
Back out to kitchen I had been doing something else.
Opening my packages.
  1. New water bowl for cats.
  2. Went to set it up and was a little put out.
  3. Why can’t instructions be simple?
  4. And why do I always lose a critical piece only to have it right in front of me the whole time.wp-16215996553776855384702810910964.jpg
  5. Blanket for T for his 13th birthday. To remind him I love him even when I want to throttle him during his teenage years.wp-16216003813741490319201160065098.jpg
  6. Clothing I had ordered for myself.wp-16216004636457746146147750852551.jpg
I am going to admit that I am impressed with the quality of both the blanket and the clothing.
All of which refer to a Virgo girl in one way or another.
And describe some of my traits.
I returned to wandering back and forth from task to task to task.
Which took a lot longer than necessary due to my losing focus on what I was doing.
Discovered that T has way more clothing than I do.
It went on like this for four and a half hours.
It was 2-2:30ish when I finally sat down.
I have not done the bathroom or floors as in mopping and sweeping yet but I have given myself permission to let it be.
I believe around one or so I had messaged a friend and said okay I am going to sit down now.
Remembered I had to do the litter boxes and went into scoop.
Came out to ‘no you aren’t’.
And laughing faces.
Someone knows me well
Despite the fact that my weekend plans have been shot to shit thanks to imbeciles in my province (ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha-total inside joke of my own.) I also now have four days to myself.
The ex decided to take last night off instead of Monday.
Which meant T did not come home last night.
This is a bit of an anomaly.
As in the last time I had this many days alone…..
T then messaged me and asked if he could stay home.
As in at his dad’s today.
I am sitting here having finished all my tasks today by 8:45 am. about to read and watch some more The Boys on Amazon.
Pretty dark and quite interesting.
Oh and I broke an Amazon CS bot or person.
Whichever it was.
But that my friends is a story for another day.

3 Hours & Counting

3 hours and counting until I am officially on holidays.

10 a.m.

10:30 a.m. couch/tv/and the many posts to read that are sitting in my inbox.

10 whole days of doing nothing but what I want to do.


I succeeded in getting the floors done and made some arrangement changes to the living room. No coffee table and repurposed the small bookcase from T’s room to act as a shelf/side table by the couch. 

The coffee table is in the middle of the kitchen at the moment. Waiting for the ex to pick it up and do with it what he will.

I spoke briefly with the ex regarding getting T vaccinated. Without explaining to me what his reasons are he wants to wait. So I told him sure. Than I discussed it with T last night. And he told me he is getting the shot. I cannot not take him as he can go by himself without parental consent. I will take the hit when he decides it is time to vaccinate T. 

3 hours and counting…..

Are y’all prepared for the party that will become Jay over the next 10 days?

Happy Thursday everyone!
