Is Winter Gone Already?

Maybe its just because Sean turned on his old computer which hasn't been used in weeks because its so noisy and it makes the room hot. So the room got hot today. I decide it was time to get the fan out of hibernation. That thing was so full of dust, I could not believe it. Spring cleaning time everyone.

Big Bad Day

Have you ever failed at something you've tried really hard at? I guess the best advice to that situation is to keep trying. I'm having a really bad day and it just keeps getting worse. I've got nothing else to say worth reading. Times like these call for zucchini cake! Zucchini cake! I can't wait.

Crazy Baby

Last night Ephraim didn't sleep. As a result he woke up this morning and said, "I'm going to be as evil as I can so I can drive my mother insane."

The Evil Laundry Room of Doom

I think I'd rather shoot myself than do laundry right now. So you can imagine how happy I was that Ephraim peed his bed and all his quilts last night. The laundry room on our complex is ridiculous. The laundry room door is always locked and nobody has a key. People just leave the door open a crack when they leave, if they're polite. If they're not then I can't get in to do laundry. Or even worse, I've already started a load and can't get in to get to my clothes. This last weekend they held one of my loads hostage for three days. I hate this place. The laundry room is locked right now. Sean, I think Ephraim's going to have to sleep with us tonight.

To Bink or Not to Bink

For most of Ephraim's life he has gone without a pacifier. We didn't want to force one on him when he was little and so he just grew up without using one. Recently however, he's been obsessed with sucking, whether its on an empty bottle or his hand or an important checkbook (grrr), so today I got out his baby binkies that he never used and gave him one. He's taken to it. I'm not sure how I feel about this, but whatever. He seems happy.

Games

Aside from the fact that I have just been injured, I just really hate games. I mean like board games, card games, that kind of thing. Apples to Apples is fun. And I like Pit. There are games I like. But basically, I hate games. Even games I like can get old fast. Most games are only fun for the first five seconds after I understand all the rules, then they just get boring and I try to find ways to end it as soon as possible, even if it means I have to lose. Sean says that one of the purposes of games is for social interactions and that may be one reason why I dislike them. He may be right, I'm not the most social person in the world. Usually if I'm playing a game its because someone begged me so they could have the min requirement of players, or perhaps if I didn't play I'd be the odd man out and have nothing else to do. Maybe its because I just suck at games. I don't know, sometimes I could be winning and still not be enjoying myself, like in Rook. Other times I could be losing big time and still have fun, like in Apples to Apples. I guess it is generally more annoying if I am not doing well in the game though. But since I have to have the rules of Rook explained to me every time my sisters convince me to play with them, you can guess my skills wouldn't improve much.

Cursed

Today my husband broke my toe. We were playing Curses and I was trying to run away from my baby because he was going to electrocute me and Sean who was also trying to electrocute me stepped on my foot and broke my toe. He said was sorry.

I also learned how to be Ninja, Gansta and Emo.

I Suck

I don't know why I even blog, everything I do and say is so stupid anyway. My one new years resolution was to not suck so bad this year and I've already ruined it by going and hitting a parked car. I am such an idiot. Why do I have to ruin the lives of everyone around me?
