MAY IS THE MONTH OF SPRING. And rain. Lots of rain. XD I go back and forth with my love for rain. Sometimes I want it to be cloudy/wet all the time. Other moments in my life, I just want to see the blue sky high above me. XD
I’m really tired at this moment.
Why do so many of these life updates say that??? And why am I always so tired?! I stayed up really late last night because 1) two little pets of mine were running around their cage, making a lot of noise and 2) I was busy writing/reading. If you’re ever considering getting sugar gliders, they are nocturnal. And if you have their cage right in front of your bed, you’ll stay up too late watching the little white blobs running all over and climbing the sides of the cage. XD
Mother’s Day was a lot of fun. Daddy and I made a lemon curd (sugar free) cheesecake that turned out pretty well.
It turned out to be a nice, warm day outside, so took a hike around the neighborhood (and I didn’t wear shoes and got blisters on my feet from the hot pavement. XD)
We watched a lot of movies this month. Especially ones about missing princesses.
We watched one called The Stolen Princess. No offense to the creators of it, but I really hated the ending. The story was about this actor who meets the princess (who is running away because she doesn’t want to get married, of course). They fall in love after being together for like five hours. She gets captured by this magician guy who is planning to steal the power of her “love” to replenish the power of his magical staff thingy. So Mr. Actor goes and rescues her. The story ends with him dying, getting better and then getting down on one knee and asking the princess to marry her. *coughs* She says yes. Of course.
I was thinking, “Uuuuh, seriously? You’ve spent less than a day with this guy. You know absolutely NOTHING about him! What’s gonna happen when those nice, warm , fuzzy feelings wear off and you realize that you’re married to a complete stranger?” It kind of made me want to write a short story about ‘after the happily-ever-after’. XD
We went to a couple discount stores over the month and lookie what gold I found there…..
TREASURES! The cinnamon sticks were less than 80 cents per container, the succulent was $1.99, the gum was less than a dollar a piece and all of that tea was like $4 total. *nods* It was great! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Also, guys, you HAVE to try eating cinnamon sticks! They’re SO good! I loved doing that when I was little. I also LOVED ground cinnamon so much. Due to a disgusting experience which is too gross to write about at this moment, I no longer love ground cinnamon. But chewing on the sticks…*heart eyes* Ah.
Beyond that, I’ve been getting into a routine of playing with/caring for Ink and Dreamer. While they’re sleeping in the day, I carry them around with me. Then at night, when they wake up, I’ll feed them and play with them.
And yes, they still go to the bathroom on me almost every time I play with them. Dreamer is warming up to me A TON. She’s getting less shy and really coming out of her shell more. She’s so tiny and fits so perfectly in my hand. *goes off into starry eyed wonder for a moment*. XD
And yes, that is Ink. I should have put a picture of Dreamer here ’cause I was just talkin’ about her. 🙂
This is what my story writing has looked like lately….
XD XD Anybody else feel like that, or am I the only one?
*goes off onto a totally different ramble*
I made deep dish pizza for the first time a week ago. It turned out….uh, I’m not sure. I doubled the recipe because we’re a big family with several children who eat large amounts at a time, but I should have just made one batch. We ended up eating it for like a week. XD Baruch, who didn’t like the way it looked, refused to try it the first night, and he’s the person who eats the most here, so by the end of the night, there were still two pans full of it. DX
And for my final point….Yoveil Cuteness!!!
Yoveil, while eating ice cream: I think it froze my heart!
Jehosheba, after a pause: oh, you watched Frozen, didn’t you?
Yoveil: yeah. But I can still breathe!
Jehosheba: will your hair turn white?
Yoveil, with a shrug: I don’t know.
Nahum: it will when you’re an old lady!
Yoveil found a bunch of snails when we were taking a walk around the neighborhood. It had rained and they were all over the sidewalks. She was saving them all and making sure that no one stepped on them or hurt them in any way. When we were close to home, one happened to be squished. She burst into tears and sobbed all the way back. So we made a memorial paper to all the squished snails and put it in our bedroom window for all of them to see. 😉
And so ends another terribly random post with absolutely no point or direction.
Until next time, friends!

How was your Mother’s Day? Have you ever made deep dish pizza? What are your thoughts on the ‘happily-ever-after’ typically displayed in fairy tales? Have you found good discounts on fun things in stores? What is your favorite type of cheese? (Yes, that was random because I am random and my blog is an extension of me. XD
