Husband woke me up at 9pm last night and said, "Look out your bedroom window". Begrudgingly got up and saw what I thought was the most beautiful grey fox I have ever seen. Usually the grey foxes in our area are small and mangy looking. This one was huge and had immaculate fur. I wish I would have gotten a photo but I was half asleep and didn't think about it until it started to walk away. But now I'm wondering if it was actually a coyote. Now wide awake, it looked more like a coyote than a fox. That would be even cooler if it was a coyote because I've only seen one once before and that was 20-something years ago.

DH has been working for 2 solid months now to encapsulate the crawl space under our house. He's saving us a lot of money; but man it's been a long 2 months of him working every weekend on it and a few weekdays too. His doctor told him not to lose any more weight but he's dropped probably another 10lb crawling around under there every weekend. The vapor barrier part just arrived so maybe now he's on the home stretch. :please:

I had to laugh though... he was in contact with the delivery guy because he said several rolls were heavy 75lb ones so he wanted me to move the car and have the garage door open for the guy. I told him I moved them myself. They aren't that bad. They only weigh a little more than DS (who I still lift occasionally). :lol: I could have managed from the front porch to the garage. But they would have taken the whole porch up so I'm grateful I could be here to get it. ;)

If yours is like the crawl space in my former house, it is a vile job. I didn’t have to insulate but I did have go under there to run cable and telephone lines up to a new addition. Being a bug phobic person, I covered every part of me and then put on glasses but I could still feel cobwebs and stuff touching me. Brrr, hateful job.

I'm feeling so grumpy today and not feeling the parenting thing at all. J's been doing a lot of SUPER LOUD VOICE lately, today I had to take her to the doctor for her well visit and hear about how I'm still breastfeeding too much and she should have gained more weight, and then she napped for less than an hour today after fighting it.

I just feel touched out and want to be left alone. :confused:

I haven’t made myself crawl under there but we’ve gotten compliments from our pest control company on how clean ours is after the yearly termite inspection. :lol: DH may have vacuumed under there…:crazy: (Just please don’t expect that level of clean inside!😩) DH wanted to do this way back when DD was a baby but it was too expensive. So he installed a good dehumidifier and got a weather station to monitor things. We had an issue with our 2nd dehumidifier while under warranty so he decided to DIY encapsulate it. He helped my stepdad install one at their house a few years ago and said it was awful! I’ll be staying up here!😩

What is on my mind? WHAT IS ON MY MIND??? I messed around and got old, that is what is on my mind! I realized this last night while shopping for clothes online. I used to find a cute outfit and go searching for the perfect shoes to go with it. Last night, I was looking for the perfect purple nightgown to go with my favorite purple fuzzy socks! AAAAARRRRGGGGGGHHHHH

Have you ever shopped Amerimark? They have tons of comfy stuff at reasonable prices.
