So, we totally skipped February, right?
It went by in a blur, but it was a good month! We took care of the vehicle stuff I’d mentioned in my previous post, and all has been well since (*knocks on wood*). My Gram had surgery; it went very well, and my uncle kept me updated with everything, which was much appreciated. I got a darling little bucket with the word “Blessed” on it, and planned to do something artsy with it (I’ll be talking about that in my next post). I had a couple of marathon phone chats with my Momma, both of which were much needed for various reasons. BatKid started writing and illustrating His own original comic ideas for Captain Underpants, and it will apparently have lots of different volumes! We spent a lot of time outside when it was nice (most of the month), and had to bury a dead deer we found on our property (ick). It did snow a couple of times later in the month, which was so exciting for my Son – but it didn’t last long, as usual. Lots of happy mail came in throughout the month, too…but that’s for another post. 😜 We had a few days of decent rain, one of which was spent watching the Kiddo jump in puddles while getting my tire fixed (He loves the rain!) and seeing Him get spoiled by a lady in the waiting room (she’d overheard our conversation about me not having any quarters for a bouncy ball from the machine, and kindly offered Him one). ❤ My husband got a bonus at work, so he was able to splurge on himself with it! We also got a new dryer, since our old one had been slowly dying for awhile before finally ceasing to warm up; it’s wicked nice, but way more fancy than what I’m used to, lol. I binge-watched the entire two seasons of the Netflix show, “One Day At A Time,” and loved the snot out of it. BatKid had His yearly eye exam; His vision didn’t change much, but we still got Him the new prescription and glasses (they look so snazzy). 😏 Our woodstove started acting funny during use, and we figured out why: our chimney was way dirtier than we thought it’d be after such a short time! It’s all better now, after Hubs worked hard on getting it all cleaned up, which he did on a day he’d stayed home from work. One of the snow days was the day after, so it was excellent timing on his part! The Kiddo and Puppers enjoyed playing together in the snow, despite how little we got, and how quickly it’d melted. Hubs and I finally watched the movie, Doctor Strange, and HOLY SNAP IT’S AWESOME. 🤘
The Puppers has been crazy as hell lately. He crossed into two of our neighbors’ yards when I was out walking him around our property one day. I wasn’t pleased, lol. He’s also rammed full force into my chest with his face, which hurt my sternum and most likely didn’t feel that great on his nose, ha. Another day, he punched me in the face and my upper lip was swollen a bit, lol. He’s just so rowdy! 😁 For unknown reasons, he puked one very early morning, and I woke up to those horrid sounds. I guess he’d eaten something outside that didn’t sit well or something, and it was out of his system after that. The Puppers barks like mad every time Hubs comes home from work, but I can’t blame him too much, as it’s quite alarming to have someone entering your house in the middle of the night, lol. He also goes crazy when anyone comes to our house, though he’s gotten used to the people who bring packages (though still barks), and even whined when one walked away from the door. It was too cute! 😄 He’s really been pushing the cats’ buttons, though. He just wants to be friendly and play with them, but they all still let him know that getting too close, is not ok. It’s only been almost three months since he joined our Family, but I do hope they like him sooner rather than later. 😕 The Puppers is a fantastic snuggler; I’ve fallen asleep holding him a few times, and slept super well each time, lol. It’s like having a super warm body pillow, only that body pillow squirms and kicks me a lot when it’s awake. ha! The Kiddo and the Puppers play a lot, inside and outside, and go on adventures together on our land. It makes my heart melt to see them play and have fun together, and how much they respect each other. 😍
Hubs’ birthday was the twenty-first, the day after he’d come back from being away for work; BatKid and I did our best to make it as special as possible, and were quite successful! ☺ The Kiddo made Dad his favorite cake (carrot cake), and we decorated it together. It was delicious, and Hubs really appreciated and loved it. This is his last year of his thirties, so we wanted to make it even more festive than usual. BatKid and Hubs played a video game together earlier in the day, and we got Chinese for dinner (Hubs’ pick)! It was a really great day for us all. 😃
I haven’t knitted much, unfortunately. I’ve mentioned before that I take a medication that treats my anxiety and depression; well, it hasn’t been working as well, so I’m pretty sure an increase is needed. I’ve noticed some mild signs of what I dealt with before I began taking the med, and they’re not pleasant. I had been feeling so good for awhile, so it was even more obvious when those signs returned, no matter how mild they are. I’ll be seeing my doctor tomorrow, so I’m going to address it with her then. I’ve also been dealing with some crazy side effects, but they’re not bad enough to change meds, thankfully. I’ve been down worse roads in that aspect, with past medications – which is a big reason why I was so against taking pills for my mental illnesses for so long. Hopefully an increase helps, so I can get back to enjoying my hobbies and feel my best again. Unfortunately, Hubs’ birthday gift is still in progress because of my lack of interest, for which I feel like shit…but he understands completely, like the wonderful man he is. 🙄
Hopefully March doesn’t fly by, but either way, I’m looking forward to seeing what this month has in store for me and mine.
Until next time…
