It is 83 degrees in my house. It should never be 83 degrees in my house.

My amazon UK order came in, but it needs a signature so I have to go to the post office, which doesn't open until 10:30. I came home to the notice an hour after it closed on Saturday. You guys, that's almost two days I could have been watching lowbrow european TV if they'd just left it at the doorstep!!

And seriously, in this neighborhood? Who's going to be all "Oooh, subtitled region 2 PAL dvds of french tv!! Imma just steal this for myself!"

Parcels get stolen from my doorstep annak - sadly they take it whatever is in it cos they don't know what's inside til they have it!

I'm trying to dismantle a heavy office desk so I can get it downstairs. I'm taking one leg off (it has two massive slab legs rather than four legs) as I can hopefully manoeuvre it okay as an L shape, and the last screw (of a million screws) won't come out. Gaaaah!

Nobody steals stuff from our door and you can even put packages inside the foyer door, but the postal carriers now refuse to even walk to your door. So if something doesn't fit in the central mailboxes, you get a slip of paper that says you can either come to the P.O. and pick it up or sign the slip, put it back in the outgoing mail, and they will put the package at your door. BUT THEY DON'T! EVER! It has even happened that we've missed slips and they've sent the package back to the sender because we haven't picked it up in time. The post office is so insanely out of the way and has such useless hours and sometimes they can't even find the package when you go there because the office is across two buildings. Argh. There is even a box on the central unit for packages and they are supposed to leave you a temporary key to open that box where they can put packages, but they don't use it.

After a good 10 minutes of hunting in the back of the post office, they found my DVDs. Wahoo!! Of course, I got bored on Sunday and signed up for a free HBO trial, so now I am busy watching all the games of thrones I have missed.

Today's first world problem is that I find it very difficult not to make snarky responses when well-intentioned, kinder-hearted people post jpegs of pithy military sayings with bad grammar. It makes me realize that my marriage is not like other people's marriages. Which via the transitive property and Tolstoy makes me, I'm fairly certain, unhappy.

Arrive at work. Discover that I have forgotten to put almond milk in my oatmeal before leaving the house. Sad.

Remember that I have Emergency Almond Milk stashed at my desk. Happy!

Forget that room temperature almond milk will require less time in the microwave than chilled almond milk, end up with half of my oatmeal exploded in the microwave. Sad.

Realize that I still have enough almond milk left to make iced coffee. Happy!

Coffee shiitakes. Sad.

It is way too early in the day for this much emotional turmoil.

I know this makes me a crasshole and all, but I sorta hate holidays. As a SAHM with a deployed husband, there's just no upside - everything is crowded and loud, businesses are closed, there's no mail, everyone has the day off but none of MY responsibilities change, it's just impossible to get anything done. It's like an even worse case than weekends. Plus everyone's out of town or doing stuff.

Democracy is great and all, but NEXT

Everyone else in my office gets to leave an hour earlier, but I have to stay (they're all a different position). This blows!

It's too warm and I don't want to hang out with my (awesome) kids today, because the heat is making me kind of grumpy today and I never get a break from them except to go to work. We don't have any awesome babysitters, and our family is too picky/busy/selfish/etc to watch the kids. :( Argghh. I want to go to a coffee shop with AC with my partner and enjoy some iced lattes without little kids talking my ear off or crawling on me (they are so sweaty!)

I didn't have enough pizza left over to have pizza eggs for breakfast and pizza for lunch. pizza for lunch wins.

I had to look up pizza eggs - I had never heard of such a thing! So you scrape off the topping and mix with tofu for a vegan version? What happens to the base? Pizza for breakfast or lunch sounds much better.

I want to leave work early but I have to stay until 5 because my spin class is at 5:30 and it's right beside the office.

Does HBO Go have to sign me out every flipping day? Why can't it just keep me logged in?

I CAN'T LIFT MY OWN (very nice, very comfortable, queen size) MATTRESS BY MYSELF AND IT IS DISTRESSING ME TO A GREAT DEGREE.

While dishwashers are pretty first-wordly, I'd say having to spend a large amount of money on getting it fixed is a valid concern.


My strawberries don't taste like how I want them to taste.

Yeah I s'pose that's true. I also run my bakery from my home kitchen, I wasn't overly busy yesterday but I still ended up doing five sinks worth of washing up. Ugh.

My lips are chapped, but I don't have any balm/ Chapstick-like product on hand. I need my brother Kip to bring me my Chapstick. . . my lips hurt real bad!

Spouse was browsing Netflix/Hulu/Amazon on one TV and I was browsing on the other and neither of us could find a movie we wanted to watch.
