I’m Tired, But I’m Here… And I’m Singing!

Ever have one of those moments where you want to do a bunch of stuff, but you’re so tired you know you’ll only end up with pitiful results, and so you might as well not bother? — Yeah. That’s me tonight.

I want to write (specifically on my novel), but I know it’ll be one gigantic mess that needs a lot of editing later. And I mean, a lot! I tried to read, but I wasn’t processing anything I was reading. I’d get a couple paragraphs down and realize I had no idea what I just read. I was going to catch up on Chicago Fire, I’m several episodes behind, but all that action, drama, and adrenaline rushing that goes on with them, well… it needs a certain amount of focus from me, which I’m not sure I’m capable of right now. — I’m that kind of tired. I can’t even watch dramatic tv!

I think I’m going to pick an animated movie, or a 90s sitcom, something that doesn’t require a whole lot of thinking. Then I’m going to drift off to sleep, and tomorrow I’ll do all those things I’m itching to do.

Sounds like a solid plan to me. (But of course it does, it’s my plan! 😂)

I did manage this blog post though, so I’m feeling rather productive right now. Don’t get it twisted, this is all I’m capable of. I know you’re probably thinking, if you can do this Heather, you can do all the other stuff.

No, no. No, I can’t. I’m half asleep and give slap out. It’s been a long week, a lot of late nights, busy days, and early mornings. This one blog post, it’s all I have to give… (If you’re a 90s kid, and you didn’t just sing… but my love is alllllll I haaave to giiiive, without you I don’t think Iiii could liiiive, I wish I could giiiive the wooorld to youuu, but love is all I haaave to giiiive… I’m a little disappointed in you. 😂)

Double thumbs up to me for actually getting something accomplished, though! (This blog post!)

See you tomorrow! – Heather. ❤️

What We Have Here Folks… Is A Bird War!

I’m writing this post from my backyard. It’s nice out, the sun is going down, the birds are at the feeder. Like right now, a beautiful, red cardinal is at the feeder, and a woodpecker is hanging out on a branch in the tree. No squirrels at the moment. We do have corn for them, but I don’t see any right now. Now that I’m looking more closely, there are about 7 or 8 other birds in the tree, scattered about along the branches. Likely waiting on me to go away. 😂

Along with the birds, there’s a dog barking every once in a while, a next door neighbor letting her grandson help fill up their bird feeder, (I can’t see them, our yard has a privacy fence, but I can hear them.) Several kids are playing way further down the street, someone is grilling… The smell of charcoal is in the air. I hear birds chirping, a few bugs making noise. A squirrel just made an appearance… but not at the feeder, he scampered along the top of our fence and went into the neighbor’s yard.

It’s about 65 degrees outside, I’m wearing shorts, but I have a blanket. The kids across the street are playing basketball ball now. Can’t see them, but I hear the ball bouncing. Birds are still waiting on me to leave. Okay, scratch that… They just flew over my head and went to the neighbor’s yard. The ones that just put out seed. They stole my birds, y’all. 😂

Know what all this sounds like though? Looks like?

Home. ❤️

Anyway, I’mma end this here and go inside, see if leaving lures the birds back over. Think shaking the birdseed bag like ya do the treat bag for the dog works the same? 😂 Prolly not. I may try though. This is all out war now. I want my birds back! 😘

See y’all! – Heather! ❤️

Somebody Went Dress Shopping!

My day went like this…

Shopping, shopping, and more shopping!

Seriously though, I did a lot of shopping.

There’s a company party for my husband’s job coming up, and I needed a dress. Some of y’all know that in 2018 I lost 40 lbs, well, I dropped several dress sizes and none of my fancy black-tie affair dresses fit anymore. Last year, the party was a weird theme, and I bought a different kind of dress. This year, it’s back to regular ol’ black-tie affair, and, well, I didn’t have any fancy dresses. — Hence, the shopping.

I went and picked up my mom, who lives an hour away, then drove forty-five minutes to town to shop. So, it’s been a long day, but a good one! Quality time with mom is always fun, and so is shopping. Can’t beat that!

I shopped, she shopped, we went out to eat, and had a good ol’ time.

Oh, and I bought my husband a coffee mug that says, ‘I love my wife.’ I was looking for one at Christmas and could only find ‘I love my husband’ ones. Popped into tjmaxx and walked right by one. Lucky for me, eh? (More like lucky him! 😘)

Anyway, I’m exhausted. It’s after 10. I told myself… blog post, then donut, in that order. I want my donut now, so I’m going to run! 😘 — See ya tomorrow!

Vacation… Writing… Day 17…

I actually got some writing done today. We’ve been on vacation, so I feel like that’s a good excuse for not getting much done the last few days. As far as work goes, that is. I did plenty of other things. 😂

I did keep up with blogging though. A post a day, just like I said I’d do. Day 17! 👍

Next week will return to normal, so it’ll be the same grind. Work, work, work…. more work. But until then, I’mma enjoy it.

I told y’all in yesterday’s post that my big ol’ dog whipped her head back and caught me in the chin. I told y’all it hurt, too. Just so you know… still hurts. 😂. I have a small bruise and my jaws are sore, all the way up into my ears. Lol. I told my husband, I was like, she basically assaulted me! 😂 — (She better be glad she’s cute and doesn’t know the first thing about malicious intent… Otherwise, well… Oh, nevermind. We all know my threats are empty when it comes to the dog. 😂)

Anyway, I think I’m going to call it a day now. Maybe climb in bed and watch the history channel. See you all tomorrow!

Heather. ❤️

Absolutely Nothin’….

I have nothin’ to say.

I’m tired. My 85lb dog just whipped her head back and caught me under the chin… I don’t know if y’all know this… but that crap hurts. So now I’m sore and I have nothing to blog about.

I may try to get a little work done later tonight, or I may not. I don’t know yet. I may just sit around and pout because I hurt now. 😂

I think my husband is going to build us a little campfire, so that’s nice. 🔥

Other than that, I’ve got nothin’. See ya tomorrow!

Here’s a little picture I took today! ❤️

Hiking & Wild Hogs, Oh My!

I hiked two miles this morning and four this afternoon. I’m beat! But it was fun! Even saw some wild mountain hogs, including a couple babies. Also got to hear the story of how my husband tore his ACL when he was a kid… for the millionth time. 😂. We hiked right by the spot, and every time we do, which is multiple times a year, he tells the story. We joked about how he’ll be telling our kids one day and they’ll be rolling their eyes like, here we go again. Haha, just like I do! 😘

Extra tidbit for y’all… In July, I fell and busted my tail on a wet stone rock while hiking, and I seem to have some form of unconscious fear about stepping on them now. 😂 I was stepping on them very slowly and completely going around them when I could. I kept laughing about it cause I was like… Heather, step on the rock… And then I’d still step around it anyway. — Funny how the mind works.

My husband & our pup, Pepper. ❤️

Oh yeah, and last night we took a short hike around a lake and some critter we couldn’t readily identity in the dark was crossing our path, and needless to say, I turned my butt around and went the other way. 😂 No shame in my game! Not trying to get attacked by some raccoon! 😂

The whole fam! ❤️

Anyway, it’s raining and I think I’m going to kick my feet up and relax. ‘Til tomorrow, Heather! ❤️
