Madeline says, good morning! 🌞
I woke up around 6am today when Christopher went downstairs for painkillers for his headache. He felt bad for waking me up but I was very glad (not about his headache lol) because I have wanted to be up earlier for some time, so I can go out and cheer up a little.
To be honest I’ve been feeling a little lonesome and depressed. 😞 I want to invite friends over but the house is really dirty… I’ve made a decision to have a cleaning service because with commissions, 4 cats, and 3 rats, and how massive this house is (2400 square feet 2 story with a million stupid trinkets) it’s absolutely discouraging. 😩 It can take me 2-3 days to clean it and I have to stop from sheer exhaustion. I don’t even get it fully up to scratch. So I’d rather draw for 2 days and pay someone else to come do it. 🤷♀️
Yesterday I finished paying Christopher off for Megaplex expenses so now I’m saving the money for the cleaning. Then I can invite friends over without being embarrassed. Ah, that good ol’ Latin woman guilt about the house…! 😅 It’s also what kept me from hiring someone all this time. I’m supposed to be good at this right?? That’s some sort of self-racism right there… but these stereotypes are hard to shake off. I can’t cook, either. Lol.
Because today I got up so early, the rats were still active and excited. It was nice to see them so perky. I watched the sunrise from my window… now it’s time to start my day.
Soon after I got ready to head out to Dollar Tree 🌳 and do some grocery shopping. This is hands down my favorite pair of overalls currently!
You couldn’t see my socks but they are decently cute too:
Also, I love this bracelet so freaking much!! myrcurystoybox gave it to me at Megaplex last August. It’s one of my favorites!
While out and about, I noticed Spirit Halloween is getting ready to open! 🎃 🍁 🍂🕸🕷🦇 I can hardly wait.
My local Publix had an ecstatic Cookie Monster piñata surrounded by cookies for their BOGO deal of the week! 🍪 It was pretty funny.
I’ve been trying my best to stay cheerful and work really hard.💕🌈🧸
I thought I got the cats a seasonal toy, but it’s a condor, not a turkey. 🦃 It’s pretty funny looking, though:
Post shopping snack. ☕️ 🍪 My mood has been all over the place… Already said it, but, I can’t wait to have the house cleaned so I can decorate and then invite some friends over. I think that will do me good.
Tomoyo kept me company. To call Tomoyo a handful would be the understatement of the year. But I still love her very much.
In other news, Jane, as her original owner had named, arrived today. I tweaked that name slightly —for me, she’ll be Janie. She seemed to have a slightly smell, maybe cigarettes I don’t know, thankfully it was SUPER faint but I’m very sensitive to those, so I febreezed her and left her in the hot Florida sun a few hours. Good as new!
I had the shirt and bow and made the necklace, her owner sent me the little pinafore. I think Janie looks very happy in her new home!
She looks very much like a koala to me 🐨 So that’s what I think her as being.
