today was a true test for myself; to see if it was at all possible to not smack all the bad people in the world. how's that to start an entry? i'll spare the details but just know that most days that start badly for me will end in a deep bleaching and cleaning of my house. i don't know why. maybe it's because on this day i felt the world was super ugly and dirty, so i could at least clean the crap out of my corner of it? i don't know. something like that. this place hasn't had a good cleaning since before Jon's surprise party 2 weeks ago, so it was quite an accomplishment. even though the day started crummy, life is good and nothing was ruined that wasn't able to be fixed. after cleaning, i gave myself a little pat on the back, decided my hair needed to be washed and took a few pictures of our little homestead. enjoy!!
