Little Thoughts

The road at the top of the mountain.
Yesterday turned out to be one of those days that starts out pretty nice but then turns into a whole crying meltdown in the car on the way back from the grocery store. I am usually pretty darn upbeat when it comes to house building even though it has taken so much longer than we had initially thought, but with the wedding looming over us I just kind of lost it. We are kind of at the point where we really need to just make a couple big pushes to make the house done enough for us to move in before the wedding and I'm very afraid that won't happen. And the idea of getting ready for the wedding and taking a shower in our outdoor sun-shower made me just lose it. It's so stupid and silly, but I feel like I don't ask for very much, I just want the house to be bare bones done enough for the wedding. All I'm talking about is just drywall and nothing else, but to get there we will have a lot to do, put on the metal roof, wire, plum, and insulate the place. Ugh it just seems like too much to do in such a short time. 

After my little breakdown I felt a little better and then the day got better. we heard back from some big clients that they really love the work we did for them so that felt really nice. Then we did some blackberry picking (I thought I would incorporate some pretty pictures from then within the post to make it slightly more cheery). But then there was a disastrous BBQ incident that left some of plastic siding on the house slight scorched, and on top of that I got a slew of spamy looking text messages late last night that wanted me to download something. That was super annoying, especially when all I wanted to do was sleep.
We found quite a few, but I think if we wait another week almost all of them will be ready to eat.
Yesterday was all over the place so I'm pretty happy that it's a new day, and we are another day closer to the weekend! We are going to hangout with our friend Shaye, which I am super excited about and of course there will be plenty yummy food and drinks for sure!

And just for good measure a goofy picture of me miming putting all the blackberries in my mouth. This picture makes me laugh at just how silly I can be. 
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday.

  5. Sorry about the rough day yesterday. I always find stress pushes me to that breaking point, then after I've been pushed over the edge and I've had a solid breakdown, I feel a heck of a lot better.

    I wish I lived closer so I could lend a hand with the house building. Keep your head up and stuff your face with all the berries you can get your hands on.
