There used to be a time where I had a month of blog posts planned and scheduled and now I just don’t. And I am not happy about that. My life has been consumed with all things “new house” so I really have nothing to share besides that. But even then, I don’t feel like posting. And I hate that I have only been posting pics from my phone instead of with the real camera. I feel like I’m cheaping out. But I have no freaking time for that stuff right now. And I’m completely uninspired when I get home from work since it’s pretty much the most boring (but easy) job ever. I’m not complaining, just explaining. I am very grateful to have a house and a job just to get that out of the way. Anyway, I thought I’d put together a post of random things that have been going on here recently. None of which is important enough to make a separate post about but it’s better than nothing…
We went to our neighbor’s 4th of July party on Saturday and they are really amazing people. They fostered and adopted a few children in addition to having their own. I enjoyed myself over there after getting over the awkward moment when we first arrived and no one knew who we were and the only 2 people who did know us, were busy talking to other people. So we stood there getting lemonade like, uhhhhh we are new here and feel silly and I swear we’re not party crashing. And it’s funny how much neighbors know about how each others houses work, like the sewer system and electric bills. Plus we got the scoop on the people who used to live in our house and the neighbors on the other side. Apparently they didn’t get along or socialize with anyone else really.
Monty is obsessed with chasing flies in the house. To the point where I can’t fucking relax since he’s running back and forth, back and forth. He’s worse than a cat because at least a cat will kill the fly.
Mabel still has a tummy rash. We are tired of being ripped off at the vet by people who should know where the rash came from but don’t. And just send you on your merry way with a medication and the advice of, “just call us if it comes back.” Well, why didn’t you just find out what it’s from the first time so we don’t have to waste anymore time and money?
We started watching The Sopranos. We went all this time without having ever watched it and we are those people who are watching because of James Gandolfini’s death.
The curtains I got for the living room, the ones I was obsessed with getting from jcpenny but wasn’t sure if I got the right color….well the color is great, but the length is not. I got 84 inch, but the window is very low so they are way too long. This was the only decorating mistake we’ve made so far by basing our decorating decisions on those listing photos we saved from the website. My mom is going to hem them for me.
I love when I find a crochet project to work on and when I’m sitting there at work and hating myself for not making enough money I think about it and get really excited to work on it when I get home. The project I’m working on now will be August’s crochet along. Yup, I’m cheating 😉 But it’s still too early for that.
I’m starting to get sick of the free /cheap / mediocre ebooks I’ve been reading. Can you recommend something freaking awesome to read? And no Harry Twatter, Sookie, or romance shit.
I’ve been listening to Radio Lab podcasts literally all day at work. That’s like, about 10 a day. There are so damn entertaining! I feel like I could be on Millionaire or something with all the trivia I know.
We have central air and it’s been a dream to have, especially with the last week being in the 90s. It felt so good too when we were busy lugging boxes in and around the basement. It’s about 10 degrees colder down there anyways. I don’t know how we even made it that long without it. It’s definitely a luxury that I will never take for granted. But we still have to see what our electric bill will be. Yuck.
That’s about it for now. Anything fun or interesting happening to you lately?
