You know how it feels when you just come to the end of something. Where it doesn’t seem to be a part of your life that you feel the need to use anymore or even give a damn about? Ya. I am there with school. We are trying to learn how to make a site on Drupal.
Which is not this…
I have been on WordPress forever, it might not be perfect but at least I understand it. I can figure it out. I can google it and find an answer.
Drupal is a bitch. It is hard and sometimes near impossible to set up. You have to be a freaking brain surgeon. It might be easier in the end, but user friendly it is NOT. And I am pretty much at the end of my rope with all the bugs you have to try and work around to make anything go or figure anything out.
I am all about making my life easier right now, not harder. So bite me Drupal.
In other news, we have all new windows in the Castle. This has made me happy…and cut down on the cold and the noise by like, oh….200%. Our living room window now opens…on both sides. Joyous I tell you…
The huge windstorm we had last night stayed outside for a change, my curtains weren’t blowing around with the windows closed!! Who knew?
Although today we do indeed have a moat around the house from the torrential rain that came with the storm…it is staying outside, thankfully…so far… apparently we have one more storm with some super high tides to go, but we will cross that bridge if we need one. Fingers crossed we don’t.
Let’s hope that the only thing we have to worry about this week is the John Hart Dam and the big one…they have recently informed us that if there is a big earthquake we have approximately 30 minutes to get to higher ground because the dam is gonna give and we are basically screwed. Nice huh? You can read that story here…
There is a meeting on the 11th which we are going to, to get more information on what exactly that means, in the meantime and the next 5 or 6 years while they are fixing said dam, I guess we just have to keep our fingers crossed that the Universe decides to maybe hold off on the big one, for like say…80 more years. That would be awesome. I am pretty tired of the water in the house worry, I suppose I should have thought buying a house by a river through a little more, lesson learned there I tell ya.
In other news, I have most of my Christmas making, baking and shopping done. Though I have not got one decoration up. No that is a lie, I have exactly one decoration up. My friend Colleen gave me an awesome early present!! It is a lantern with a led light that looks like a real candle. I love it. It is all that I have for Christmas inspiration at this point. All my other decorations are under the stairs, and it just seems like too big of a job for me to get everything out of the way and get it out from under there this week.
It’s early, and we aren’t even going to be home for Christmas…I might not even bother with a tree this year.
And I am turning 50. Just so you know.
It’s kind of a big deal. Because it means that no matter what, even given best case scenario that you are gonna live to 100…you are halfway there bitch. The young days, the days when you could say you weren’t yet middle aged are fucking OVER. It’s real. Middle age is here. I just have no idea how that even happened. It was just yesterday that I was turning 21, I swear.
Apparently middle age takes away some of your optimism…I am just trying to not think about it. And I will eat cake. Lots of cake. And I will drink Champagne. Lots of Champagne.
Christmas is at my parents house this year, and we are all going to be there…my kids won’t let me smooch them anymore so the wee prince is gonna be giving me some Aunty love. I have the kid for nearly a week. We are gonna have us some fun. Between him and baby Jack I will be smooched better.
Thank goodness for babies, they seem to make you forget that you personally are getting old, and there is absolutely not a single damn thing you can do about it…nothing except take the good when it comes and enjoy the little things…like baby smooches and a nice warm house, that will hopefully not float down the river with your 50 year old ass…
Happy Wednesday everyone!
