I Live With Monsters

Last Tuesday I came home after my run and my wi fi wasn't working. I checked the router, nothing was getting power. Actually, none of my appliances on that wall were working. I checked out the circuit breaker box and one was tripped. I unplugged everything reset the circuit, plugged every thing back in and the only thing that didn't come back on was the dvr/cable box. 
I just figured it was fried and didn't think  much more of it. I keep the entertainment stand covered because the baby birds chew on the cords. I had never caught one of them back there, so I never put it together.
The next day, it was working again. Yesterday, it stopped working again, but this time I saw one of them fleeing the scene.
I looked and I found this:

Basically, one of them should have fried when they blew the circuit...but instead they survived to terrorize me another day.
You would think anything this cute couldn't be  *that* evil

but I assure you they are little feather bags of evil

You don't…

Are you a morning person or evening person?

. I am so not a morning person. I'm much more alert and thrive at night. Most mornings I am pretty much in zombie mode for a few hours.Ask me anything

Just Another Manic Monday

I'm not a fan of Mondays...who really is. For some reason though I'm ready for this one. I'm exhausted (were talking about maybe 8 hours of sleep since Thursday). I'm sore. I'm worried. I'm scared.  I feel like I have done something wrong, but I can't figure out what. I'm stressed about my trip home at the end of the week (and dreading doing it solo).  For some reason, none of that matters this morning. I guess my new perspective is working.

I had more time than I would have liked to think this weekend. Some of it was very productive. Some of it just made me feel worse. Mostly, it made me realize all I can do is face each day like I did before the tornado.
