potluck

Officially stressing out.  The migraine I’ve had for the past 3 days is a testament to that fact.

So far today I’ve eaten bacon.  Now I’m contemplating cake.  Another sign of stress.

I have gnats in my houseplants.  I’ve used insecticides for the past 2 days and not much has changed.  I’m trying vinegar jars placed near the plants to see if that does the trick.  Of course the only vinegar I had on hand was apple cider vinegar so there are small jars of what looks like very dark urine around my living room.  Nice.  I realize that the gnats won’t go away completely, but I am sick of seeing them in my house.  If the combination of vinegar and poison doesn’t at least alleviate the problem I might have to buy a small plant stand for my porch and keep them out there.  At least until it gets too hot for gnats.  I wonder if the stray cats that roam the neighborhood would leave them alone.

It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn’t call but I’m a little drunk
and I need you now.
Well I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now
I just need you now.
Oh baby I need you now.

How many of us actually ask for what we need?  I am not good at it.  I guess I fear rejection.  Sometimes I ask, but I am always hesitant.  I’m also not very good at figuring out what others need.  Sometimes it’s obvious, but when it isn’t I need them to tell me.  Sometimes I suck.

The weather’s getting hotter by the day and my kids are getting excited.  Hot weather means swimming.  They are very excited that I have a pool easily accessible.  Now swimming won’t just mean trips out to my parents’ this summer.  The only problem with my pool is that they have to be monitored.  I’m not a big fan of short shorts or sleeveless so I’m guessing I’ll have the best farmers tan around.  Either that or I’ll have to wear my swim suit.  I’m not a big fan of wearing my swimsuit either.

I’m out of Diet Coke.  I’m drinking the last regular Coke in my fridge.  It’s Fleur de lis’s Coke, but I don’t think she’ll mind.

I still need to pay rent.  I usually pay early, but April just got away from me.

My head hurts.

  1. I rarely ask for what I need – I rarely ask anyone for anything actually. I used to, if the need was great enough, but I’ve been rejected too many times and it just hurt too much.

    Also, you’ve made me hungry for cake. 🙂

    Hope you feel better.

  2. I rarely ask either. I’m not big on confrontation and so I tend just to keep things inside.

    Hope that headache gets better and the stress level goes down.

    Loving that song btw, one of my current favs.

    Take care.
