|What’s rocking my world lately- boring homeowner edition:

1) My FREE faucet aerator (and to a lesser degree, the free showerhead). I didn’t realize how crappy my OLD bathroom faucet was, until I got this one that makes the water come out in that / | | \ pattern—super great! Yes kids, once you are a homeowner, dumb shit like this will excite you more than you thought possible. Thank you Mayor Nickels, for increasing my water usage efficiency! Now if you could just lay off that “regulating dangerous nightclubs” nonsense, I’d be even happier.
2) The WEEDHOUND! I’m still attempting a brutal program of dandelion genocide, and this makes it so much easier. It’ll still take me weeks before the scourge is eliminated, but this is like the best garden tool ever. As an added bonus, you can make dumb stoner jokes about having a weed hound in your life.
3) I made $103 at my garage sale last weekend. Yay for getting people to declutter your house for you AND give you 50 cents per trinket. And when I didn’t have any browsers in my yard, me and the Weed Hound got busy on the Encroaching Horde of Leafy Menace, so I was all multitasky in addition to pulling in the big bucks.
4) Awesome Boyfriend Paul (ABP), who is making sure we are properly prepared for That Thing In The Desert by emailing me his exquisite packing lists, and encouraging me to do the same, so I don’t wait til the last minute and throw 15 shirts and 1 pair of pants into the rubbermaid bin, like I sorta did last time I went.
We’re decorating our bikes in my garage; his looks awesome. Mine looks….well, at least it will not be an immediate target for theft. We’re also trying to swing it so we get to make the side trip to Crater Lake on the way down there. Yay for planning!
