what’s goin’ on

September 14, 2010

For about a week now I’ve been meaning to get a post up about the front room of our house that I’ve been working on in my spare time. It’s in the middle of its transformation & I thought it would be fun to show you some pictures and ask for advice. I started working on it today, but I’m having a lot of trouble uploading the photos. Since I have a million other (probably more important) things to do today and not much time to do them, I gave up. I’ll try again when I have time, but for now how about a simple life update? It feels like forever since I’ve spent any time here and I miss…

humor me

July 19, 2010

Y’all, my life is a little bit crazy right now. It seems like, with David and me, we’ll just be going along fine with our little lives for awhile and then all of a sudden something big will happen – usually not something very good – and then the sky opens up with a bunch of other annoyances. Oh, you want to refinance your house? No problem, everything is in perfect order, you’re guaranteed a huge reduction in payment along with a refund. But wait, what’s this! Two foreclosures in your neighborhood? Hold on just a hop skip. You’ll probably end up getting the refinance, but you might not get the refund and it definitely won’t be for at least…

steps to recovery

July 9, 2010

I’m the kind of tired where I barely have the energy to take care of myself, but since I have to go back to work this weekend to continue taking care of other people, I’m trying to get myself back on my feet today. Step One: Pop some pills. I woke up with a killer headache, and though I usually try to avoid medicine for as long as possible, I didn’t want to deal with it today. Four ibuprofen, down the hatch. Step Two: Take a shower. The only reason I did this was because I was meeting Tabaitha for breakfast. I’m grateful for this not only because I got to see her, but because the shower did a lot…

friday things: from the week

July 2, 2010

I’ll be choosing the winner of the Nintendo points card tonight when I get home from work. My family requested that I video the drawing, so I suppose I will give in and do so. I warned you there would be random videos from now on. Check back later to see if you won! *** This week has not been my favorite. My mood has echoed the weather, which has looked like this: This is not to say that I dislike the rain (although I’m not saying I like the rain either), but coincidentally this weather has matched up perfectly with my periodic hormonal imbalance. I haven’t had any energy at all, and no motivation to get anything done. I’ve been…

recovering from the weekend

June 7, 2010

So I played a soccer game this past weekend for the first time in a year. I’ve basically only been running regularly the past few weeks. Our team was two players short, so I had to play the whole game. It was definitely well into the 90’s. You can imagine how that felt. (For the record, we still won.) I went nonstop for the rest of the weekend, giving in to an urge to clean my house from top to bottom. And because I have the best parents and parents-in-law in the world, they came over and painted and cleaned and did chores without me even asking. Quick! I need a party to host! Although I expected to sleep exceptionally…
