who wants a piece of grumble cake? I made it in my own inundated kitchen! 

I'm really the best at taking unintended / unnecessary blogging vacations, aren't I? 


I'd love to say that I've been taking advantage of my time away from my computer to do something really quintessentially summery sweet, like soaking up the sun on a perfectly styled picnic blanket, eating home-made popsicles, and watching a gaggle of beautifully tanned children play in the park. But alas, mostly I've been grumping in my tiny apartment, hiding out from the incessant rain (what happened to dry season, Jakarta? Huh????) and feeling vaguely (or not so vaguely) ragey.


I think I need a vacation.


Last week kind of blew big chunks. Highlights include: a return to pre-dawn awakenings (FOUR AM IS NOT MORNING TIME, CHILD!!!); a significant increase in visits from unwelcome guests; two holes in my bedroom ceiling; a stream erupting from my kitchen ceiling; incompetence or all sorts (see two holes in my ceiling and a newfound indoor tributairy);  and complicated and unnecessary shenanigans related to our upcoming trip to Canada and our lack of actual tickets, and oh, btw? Anyone know who has our passports, or what stage of visa-nonsense they may be currently engaged in ?


And to put a nice little cherry on top of this grumble cake, I've been binging on Breaking Bad and feeling like humanity is kind of totally doomed. So.


All of which is to say, things have been super frustrating. Also, I'm kind of being a big baby.


So, here's to an attitude adjustment a better week ahead??

No. I win at blogging vacays... But by the sounds of it, your entitled to a bit of a slump! Pre-dawn wake up calls...I wonder if its a moon phase because Xave has been doing that for the past week too. Also...visas...I feel you on that one! Hope your passports reappear VERY soon.

Let enjoy your life and take a rest! You can overcome those difficulties. I am sure. Keep hard working.

oooh I am so with you on those unwanted guests (shrews for us), luckily (maybe?) my cat finally figured out how to actually kill them instead of just batting them around and letting me figure out how to catch them myself. Attitude adjustments for all! Hope things look up soon for you!

You're funny! But seriously, I hope you've seen some sunny days. So happy to have found your blog. I once was an expat in Asia, and I miss it very much! Cheers to new, expat, bloggy pals. ^^
