Identity Crisis

Posted on

I am beginning to wrap up my obligations to SkillsUSA. Our state conference concluded Friday and in theory, as soon as I hand off the scrapbook, I will no longer be reporter. However, before I can do that, I need to surrender the skillsreportergirl handle and pass ownership of Red Ink In Her Veins over to my other self.

It’s more confusing than it ought to be and I think I might give up for now and return a sense of normal to our living room instead.

Today, we moved the toolbox upstairs to the hall closet. Strange place for a toolbox except for the part where we’re doing more projects inside than outside. Also, we planted a toilet bowl full of petunias this weekend.

These things at least make perfect sense.


The Bright Side

Every now and then you just have those days where you’re glad it’s over and you can just restart. And even on those days I’m glad to have the hiccups of daily life.

So this is my bright side approach to the three hilariously crummy parts of this Wednesday.

  • Our roof was installed. It’s brown. It’s supposed to be grey.

At least we have a roof over our heads.

  • Today I spent my morning at the DMV and they snapped the photo while I’m pretty sure I was licking my lips.

It’s pretty cool that my work supported my pursuit of my CDL.

  • The van I was supposed to be working on today was taken by its driver before I even arrived.

I didn’t finish the service before the end of work as a result. Life is good though because the oil cap is in the top of my toolbox.

Yep. Life is good indeed.
