When life gives you lemons…

…it also gives you stress zits. At least if you are me.  Yeah, apparently, my zitliness thinks we have regressed and we are still thirteen.

So, I’ve been all quiet on the internet front lately. Mostly because I’ve been super busy and stressed and sick, generally all at once. And now that the time of trauma is finally over, I’ve been exhausted and sleeping during more of my free time than I care to admit.

Pictures are all from the like 36 hour trip my mom and I took to Monterrey to visit my Aunt and cousins. 

More explanations and pictures under the cut:

So. Let’s see. My arm is finally better, but it was making life difficult for a while. Also, I made my wrist brace disgusting and broken by the time I could finally take it off, so I was super glad when I could say bye bye.

TMI? Probably. But at least I didn’t mention the dried sweat. Oops!

 

Isn't it pretty? At least until you see the fog and can't help but wonder if it's death fog coming up with zombies or a plague and ARE YOU ALL GOING TO DIE?

But really the most annoying part about the arm is that I needed both limbs (or rather all limbs? I guess I have more than two) in tact because I was packing. It was moving time!

 

Sometimes I look at pictures or things from the bottom of the sea and think: Aliens! Because aliens.

So mostly sans one limb, I packed and cleaned and moved. And the important lesson you should all take from this is: no more Bob. That’s right. We moved away from our friendly neighborhood toilet poltergeist. I hope he’s getting along well with his new residents. Also, maybe we should have warned them about him. Too late now, new residents, too late now.

So after we moved. Like literally, the day after. Did we get to unpack or collapse into the tired piles of injuries and bruises that we were? (I had so many bruises and cuts etc, it was ridiculous. Invisible Bob did not part with us easily.) No, we did not. Because we had to go to Monterrey and meet up with family.

And Monterrey was lovely and seeing family we hadn’t seen in years was lovely, but basically I was walking around like a giant exhausted polka-dotted zombie with a camera. 

I see you leafy-sea-dragon!

And once we got back, I had to go into super speed writelyness mode because of a (mostly) self-imposed, but actually quite hard deadline, that was more than a little bit insane all things considered.

So that’s where I’ve been. Carefully growing and cultivating stress zits. Ah, my life, the glamourisity of it kills me. And yes. That’s not a word. I just made it up. Because it’s my blog and I can do that :pppppp 

(Clearly maturity is my natural reaction to remembered stress!)

Shiny!

During LeakyCon I learned something about my curse when it comes to taking pictures of people (all super unflattering,) During Monterrey, I learned something important about pictures of animals. And I will share it with you. In a future post. So be prepared!

Until next time, mes amies.
