Weekly Journal- The week that lasted forever.

I’ve been seeing a lot of butterflies lately.

This meme really spoke to me this week. It accurately sums up how I felt all week at work. This week was so long in fact, that on Thursday I was thinking back to what I thought was a meeting on Tuesday the week before, but it turns out the meeting was actually on the Tuesday just two days ago. I couldn’t believe it. It felt like an entire week had gone by in those two days.

One exciting thing that happened though was when I came home to all these cool vacuum attachments I had ordered. I love all kinds of cleaning supplies.

I did manage to eat pretty healthy this whole week, so that’s nice.

During this week of weirdness I somehow managed to call the doctor and make an appointment for the checkup I’ve been needing since May.

Hopefully this next week is more normal!

Parking Lot Carnival

One late spring afternoon, a carnival came to town and began to set up in the parking lot of a mildly run down shopping center down the road. We waited until evening, and then ventured down to see what awaited us.

A few rides, and some food stalls stood clustered together in what was usually an empty area of the parking lot. But on this night, the shopping center was more packed than anyone had ever seen. People were walking towards the carnival from all directions, there was no admission and no one really seemed to be in charge.

It was a bizarre scene.  Across the way stood the Taco Bell, a Radio Shack that was going out of business, a Chinese Buffet we had been to a few times but regretted, our favorite Mexican restaurant and a number of strange stores we had never been too. On the other side stood the interstate.

Beneath the swirling clouds people lined up for the rides, waited for their food, and didn’t appear to think this parking lot carnival was a strange abnormality.

 I’ll never forget the time that a carnival inexplicably appeared in a shopping center near my house.

Cat Photos Friday #110- Filter Fun


The other day I had the bright idea to try out Snapchat filters on the cats.

 It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.



I think he looks like a video game character here!



I almost died laughing at this horrendous result!
