Lookey Here!

I got it!

Now I can look at McDreamy whenever I want!

Today I am helping Carolyn with her daughter's birthday party. I forgot to tell Madison it's tonight! We are doing a little cake decorating, house decorating, and whatever else Carolyn has up her sleeve.

I'm hoping to get a little more sewing done today because my machines and fabric are have taken over the dining room table. We ate out on the deck last night just so I didn't have to clean it up.

Our microwave died about two weeks ago. Not only is it my microwave but it is the overhead fan for my stove. Kaput! Nothing. John ordered a fuse for it for $15 off the internet. He had that microwave up and running in a matter of minutes. It was so wonderful to see that the timer was working, the lights were working, and the overhead fan was working. But when John actually turned on the microwave to nuke something, it died. Kaput! So John went to the local Lowe's to look at microwaves and he found more fuses. For $2 for 3 of them. Yes, the internet ripped us off! So he bought a bunch of those. So, I guess for the time being I'm expected to replace the fuse everytime I use the microwave. Sounds easy huh? I'm not bothering. I'll just keep warming up my food the old fashioned way with pots and pans. The thing I hate most about not having a microwave is all the extra dirty dishes. Think about it. You take your left-overs from the fridge and pop it in the microwave, and then eat, all from the same container. Now I take out my left-overs from the refrigerator container, put it in a pot, and then put it on a plate to eat. That's two extra dishes! Such a pain. And I'm lazy.

I mentioned in my little blog world that I have been experiencing family difficulties. I have felt so judged, and misunderstood. I cannot fix it. Believe me I tried that once and it did nothing to improve the situation. So, I'm trying to forgive. I found a quote the other day on another blog that has really helped me with this issue.

If you hear that someone is speaking ill of you, instead of trying to defend yourself you should say: "He obviously does not know me very well, since there are so many other faults he could have mentioned" Epictetus

This speaks to me because I have been accused of feeling and doing things because someone assumes that I am at fault. There is nothing I can do about that. I can only control myself. So, if this family member is reading my blog, please know that this post is not about you. It is about me, my feelings, and my healing.

Alrighty then. That's a little too deep for my little old blog. I need to think about something funny to write for next time. Another rat story maybe? Oh, I need to mention, we found rat poop in the barbecue last night.
