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 it.


I’ve been feeling all wrong lately, since about the end of last week. I don’t feel well, can’t ever get enough sleep, I wake up with headaches, and food doesn’t really interest me. Just today I had the brilliant realization that this “off” feeling coincided with the coming of my period. It all makes sense now! So hopefully it won’t be lasting much longer. Along those lines, I get to have another lovely test on Friday to determine if I have the uterine septum I told you about before. I’m not looking forward to it, but I will be glad to know if I have to have surgery or not.

My husband is recovering, although he is still pretty weak. He’s slowly doing more things for himself, although I can tell that he is going stir crazy being stuck at home for as long as he’s been here. Poor guy.

I’ve been running on all my days off, going through the C25k program once again. I’m so out of shape it’s not even funny, and this was proven to me when I played a soccer game on Sunday. First of all, I think 11 a.m. games should be banned. Secondly, since I’ve only ever played the summer season with this team I had no idea that summer is for fun and fall is when the serious teams come out. We got drubbed, and I couldn’t believe that at one point in my life I would have been able to keep up. I kept asking our team manager for a sub, and she said, “I know Kat, you always want a sub.” I told her she could either take me out now, or wait for the paramedics to carry me off with a stretcher.

Work is killing me a little bit. Maybe I’m just saying that because yesterday was craziness, but the thought of going back again tomorrow makes me want to hide under my covers. All my vacation time is spent though, so I need to get back into the swing of it.

I am the leaderof our church’s youth group along with the help of my husband and a few others. I just kind of fell into this position, and have been really struggling with what to do with the group this fall. Today I found a study that I’m excited about and I’m spending some time putting together what I think will be a fun and interesting lesson.

In my spare time I’ve been reading a lot, working on the house, trying to catch up on Gossip Girl, and playing nerdy video games like Civilization 4. With the rest of today I need to clean, get ready for youth group tomorrow, go for a run, and shower before David and I head out to our first meeting of Financial Peace University. It’s a lot to cram in, but I’m hoping it’s possible!

I hope to be back regularly soon, but until then just know that I miss you all. :)

    From Nora:

    What is the Financial Peace U thing? Never heard of it, but am intrigued.

    I always get all grumpy and out of sorts before my period, always forgetting that it’s coming and then I realize why I was craving junk food, getting headaches and etc. Amazing what hormones can do to us.

    I admire anyone who even tries to play soccer so good for you :)

    From kapachino:

    Nora, check it out at http://www.daveramsey.com/fpu/. Basically it’s a 13-week course that teaches you all about finances: saving, getting out of debt, budgeting, investing, even insurance and the like. It’s famous for helping people get out of debt and saving up an emergency fund. It’s hard but so worth it!

    From Kyla Roma:

    Aw, go team Civ! You’re in good company :)

    You’re doing such amazing things, I’m so glad that your husband is on the mend and things are going to be able to get back to normal for you two. <3
