Who designs these things???? Our modem finally bit the dust. It was a small Apple device that was non obtrusive and tucked behind whatever I needed it to hide behind. Now I have this hideous contraption that is awful to look at it and probably produces a ton more EMF’s.
From this picture I can see it needs shifted to the right. But still….it’s awful to look at it. I think I need to find a massive organite…maybe two to inhabit this space. The boy is in his gaming glory! The old modem has been going slowly and has been really bad the last two days. We went to Sam’s Club and split the pre tax price 50-50. I had other things to pick up anyway.
This was the second day of going out when I didn’t want to go out. The Girl killed the vacuum cleaner. I thought it was just the belt but yesterday I picked up a new belt and it killed it quickly. This meant I had to go to Walmart. I go into Walmart once every two years or so…only by necessity. I loathe Walmart, well…at least our ghetto Walmart. A dog, a cat, and two twenty something kids…I desperately need a vacuum. I liked the Bissell Helix so I bought the same model. Things aren’t made like they used to be so I will stick to the economy option.
Yesterday a vacuum…today a modem…please Universe…stop..I don’t want to replace anything else. I work tomorrow so at least I will get out of the house in a productive way. I did start an upcycling project… SB gave me her daughter’s bedspread almost two years ago. It had a small tear here and there but otherwise it looked great. It did tend to lump up once a week when I washed the sheets so I would take my hands and slap away the lump…which got kind of old. Almost two years later I decided to buy a duvet cover for the down alternative comforter I had in a tote in the basement. I was worried that Goodwill might not save it since they are not accepting donations right now so I tried to think of ways to upcycle it.. I saved seven of the embroidered pieces…
I stretched them to a canvas which is not as easy when your staple gun isn’t attached to an air compressor….If this keeps up, I might need to have a pop up or make an Etsy store? I have at least seven more? I ran out of canvas so I stopped.
There was another project with books that I deemed unusable and were in my trunk for Goodwill. Since I couldn’t donate them I tried to paint them and stamp on them…huge fail. They are now in the garbage where they probably should have been from the start…I tried? I can’t save everything…
The Girl did get me sucked into October Faction on Netflix. I didn’t think I would like it but I did. It was canceled but that’s okay…I enjoyed season 1 and was okay with that. At least it ended in a way that made sense. It seems like the 30-40 minute is the perfect amount of time for my attention span…unless it’s Outlander…then it’s forever.
That has been my life other than my new found meditation practice and my study of The Women Who Run With Wolves…oh..and trying out a few new recipes that are GAP friendly for the most part.
This is such a strange time and all we can do is just roll with it…. Stay healthy and shine bright…..Zia
