So.. I met my neighbor

Not exactly the way I would have liked either. This past week I have had trouble sleeping at night. This morning I woke up around 6 and decided I was going to do something useful since I couldn't fall back to sleep. I swept the floors and mopped the upstairs and downstairs and then threw in some laundry. I noticed Joseph was still up so we Skyped for a bit. It kinda felt like a wave of sleep passed over me but I had to bring Hayden to school. Ok.. so 2 min drive and then 2 min back meant I could go back to sleep in like 5 min.

I load the kids in the truck and start backing out of the driveway. Keep in mind it's pretty dark and I feel as if I'm sleepwalking at this point. I hear a BOOM when I get to the road. Thinking I may have just hit a snowdrift I keep backing up (not sure what my logic of this was). After hearing a second BOOM I decided maybe I should actually get out of the truck to see what I hit. I get out of the truck (hair is a mess and I'm in pjs) and realize I ran over not 1 but 2 of my neighbors trash cans...that were full... of trash.... The first few words that popped into my head (or maybe I said them out loud, I cant remember, I'm still asleep) I can't repeat. So I thought maybe I could pick it up real fast and hope I didn't bust his trash cans. But then I quickly realize that not only did he not use bags in his trash cans so there is individual trash EVERYWHERE, but he is standing 4 feet away in shock. This is where I am completely humiliated and apologize profusely. He said it was alright and started picking up the trash. Of course I go to help and he shoos me off.

I have actually been meaning to meet him since they moved in recently, but I'm sure I am now dubbed 'The crazy lady who can't drive and runs over trashcans'... My fail for the day :(

In good news I started my art journaling again today. My goal is to do 2 pages a day.

Oh!! And 1 month down for Josephs deployment!!! :D



  1. I am just glad it was a living thing you hit not once but twice!! Geeze you must have been tired. So glad everything was ok.. Next time look in your rearview mirrors!!! LOL I think you need to make him some of your awesome Pumpkin Bread desert that will make him forget about the crazy lady hitting his trash cans!! Hope you journaled that one!! Glad your back journaling maybe tomorrow I can do a page w/you. I have to finsish the rocking horse and Grama's gift then I will be up for it.. luvs See only 5 mons left.


  2. Oh no! Sounds like you have great neighbors though! :)

  3. Today, I went to the beach with my children.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
