All the things

I'm laid up in bed because I'm old and fell out of my front door, twisting my ankle epically, on our way to our first grown-up party in forever. The TV in our room doesn't work, so I broke out the laptop. And then I realized that it's been a million years since I posted.

We've been doing things! Non-falling-out-of-door things.
Averson is reading all the things and every time it makes my heart burst. (Also, I'm trying to fix my hideous kitchen and I'm pretty sure the yellow is awful. Is it awful?)

I bought a Cricut and I'm crafting all the things. I'm "upcycling" everything I can lay my hands on. I need some pithy sayings for wine glasses next, since I classily drank the wine my neighbor brought over out of a mason jar (aka our "good" jars)
Eli made me a heart for Mother's Day along with the sweetest bullet point list of the things he's grateful for. I totally cried. Then he asked for the heart back because he'd snuck it out of class ad he still needed to get it graded and if that's not the most perfect situation for us I don't know what is. 
Syd finished out softball and they were the champs! Softball was bittersweet, since she's the first grandkid to play and my dad would have been ridiculously excited about it. I'm glad she didn't let grief stop her, and tonight her coach presented her award and said that whenever he saw her play he thought, "Wow. She's a natural."

It's been so long, I don't even remember where I left off. Like, did I tell you about my fight with the HOA about my "vicious pitbulls"? Or how that led to the woman who'd been reporting us to get cited? Or how I took a new (temporary) job back in a prison, but it's an hour away and I'm driving all the damn time. But also it's really fun and some crazy stuff happens. A guy tried to climb the fence last week! Or in TMI news, how I went off birth control pills and realized that maybe I'm not as crazy as I thought I was? And lost five pounds almost immediately. 

I have to go back and figure out what I've left out. In the meantime, we have a week left of school and everyone is DONE. I didn't even buy stuff for lunches this week. I figure we'll just throw a bunch of random crap in a grocery sack and call it a day. We're going to family scout camp in a couple weeks and I'm stupid excited about it. And the pool is up and running!
