It's not June anymore, I am well aware, but I adore The Like and their song fit my post title for today. I have been so down today. My Uncle RJ lives in the UP and fell off his roof a few days ago. He broke 5 ribs, shattered one of them, and bruised his heart, which I didn't even know was possible. He is at home now, but in a lot of pain. I feel so bad, I cannot visit because they live so far away. Also my Aunt Helen passed away a few days ago. She was in her eighties, so she lived a long life, but my Mom and Aunt Terri were pretty close with her and they are really upset. I feel bad because I don't really remember her. I think I saw her a lot when I was around 5 years old, but I still don't remember her. So things have been a little gloom around my parents house.
On top of that, all the little things are piling up and getting to me. Louie got a cut on his arm over the weekend, it's not a big deal, it isn't infected, but It scares me because I have no clue how he did it. Our apartment has flies. Sink flies to be exact. We have had them awhile and so do other apartments. We tried the vinegar and soap traps, they don't work (I think those are only for fruit flies anyway) so Kyle got a pet-safe bug bomb a few weeks ago and we bombed the place. I cleaned up flies for two days after, it was sick and gross but they were all gone...for about a week. Now they are back and we are going to try it again and try to get all the little cracks in the apartment cleaned out too just in-case any are hiding. I just hate it because I can't have anyone over because there are BUGS all over the place. I know they are harmless, but they are gross. Then my vacuum broke, AGAIN. I have had it 5 years and we had it serviced 3 times at different places, and Kyle and my Dad and brother's have all fixed it numerous times. We borrowed Kyle's Mom's for now, but it is frustrating. I feel bad being upset about these things when there are other important things to be upset about, which is just making it worse.
I think what I need is some alone time. I really am one of those people that needs to have alone time to recharge and be able to function normally around others.
On a better note, I have been keeping up with my workout, and I have two weeks left! :) I am excited to do my "I hit my goal" post. I know I am at a slow pace, but I know it will happen, and soon. Sorry for being a Debbie Downer this post, I promise to have something more fun tomorrow (editing the pics now, actually) :)
