Today is an absolutely beautiful sunny day. It's days like these where I love to spend the entire day outside, just soaking up the light. It's a little hot for my tastes, but there's not much I can do about that - so I'm just going to make sure the body stays hydrated and cool and enjoy this beautiful sun.

We're managing to push through the ridiculous mess with the bedroom ceiling, finally. Beth has settled into some sort of routine again, which is good. When her routine's thrown out of whack, it causes her some serious troubles - she finds it hard to concentrate, and her whole day ends up thrown off the rails. I'm glad she's finally settling into some sort of routine again.

(For those who don't know, I just realized nobody has posted about it here - when we came back from vacation on Wednesday, we came home to find out the upstairs toilet had a rather epic leak, causing the ceiling in the master bedroom to turn into a waterfall, ruining the bed and soaking the carpet. It was not a fun thing to come home to.)

Mm. I'm looking forward to the short walk we're going to have this afternoon, from the bus stop to the coffee/tea shop where Beth's meeting with a friend for some tea.

OW OW OW

THANK YOU TORRIN FOR DECIDING THE BEST SHIRT TO WEAR OUTSIDE TODAY WAS A TANKTOP

Fuck ow. We got a sunburn thanks to Torrin's "oh it's so sunny out I want to spend all day outside" thing earlier. Beth had drinks with her friend, and since the buses are running on their summer schedule (read: their ridiculous schedule where buses on the route we use most only run once an hour instead of once every 10 minutes), we ended up walking home from downtown. And ended up all sorts of crispy. I mean, it's not horrible, it doesn't hurt to wear a shirt, but it is annoying. And our back itches. O_o

Husband's off getting some new aloe vera gel for us, since the old stuff doesn't seem to be doing much - and it is four years old, so maybe it's time to get fresh stuff. We're happy he's doing at least that for us - we'd do it ourselves, but I don't trust his scooter, and Scooterlou, our faithful steed, is in the frigging shop.

Maybe a scooter ride will put the husband in a better mood. He's been a cranky ass since we got home. I mean, he's got good reason, yeah, but honestly, he needs to stop dwelling on what's wrong with life and focus on the good. (But will he listen to us? Probably not.)

Oh wait, he brought flowers. I think that's a peace offering. And he apologized for being "a bear", as he calls it. And brought chocolate ice cream.

Okay, apology accepted. XD
