I am still alive (although sometimes it is a stretch) but I haven't been feeling much like blogging.
Here are some things that have been happening in Funny Land.
*My MIL came home from the hospital last Tuesday. She feels great and coming home was the best medicine. Her sister and daughter are there along with 2 small
*Tuesday morning I woke up at 5am sick as a dog. I actually threw up (something I avoid at all costs) and had some kind of stomach bug (which shall be blamed on the Mexican food the night before) which resulted in me calling in sick. Or poking in sick since my stand-in was sleeping next to me. He worked all day for me while I slept most of the day and then crawled to the sofa where I watched bad Netflix shows all day.
*We decided to price wood flooring this week. We decided on handscraped 5 inch planks and bamboo seems to be my favorite because of the dogs (looks distressed and bamboo is very hard) but the price is pretty steep. Let us just say that I will be wearing today's fashions all summer. And no new shoes. Or lipgloss. Fortunately, I think we may be able to swing some renovations this fall. Or early winter.
*I picked up some cute tops last week at Marshalls. I love that store.
Here I am in the dressing room. I ended up with the pink top and the cream one hanging on the door plus a gray one (not pictured)
|I bought this one|
|not this one, but the one in back|
*I saw this in a magazine and fell in love. It is even on sale at Pottery Barn. Sadly, I don't need it.
*I have been slowly cleaning the garage and going through the boys' closets.
This makes them hostile.
The big one has way too many shirts and need to downsize. Seriously, he has 30 white Hanes tees.
*I am finally! having this dresser refinished. Ok, I cannot find a before photo of it but let us say that it was very worn and old. It was in my mom's foyer for years and it had been painted many a color over the years. I am having it stripped, painted and the original knobs restored to their glory.
*Last weekend- date night. We went to the lake in the Jeep with the top down (yeah, that didn't last long)
We had a great dinner (blacked tuna for me) and drinks (margaritas) and great conversation.
*Last night I was feeling cranky (as I have all week) so I called a friend and invited her for drinks. We went to our favorite Mexican place and had margaritas. The little one dropped us off (because we are responsible is what we are) and my hubby picked us up. We made plan for tonight to do a couples date.
*We are in talks about getting a pool. This is probably a far-off dream but a few of our neighbors have pools and we have plenty of space for one. Again, no new clothes or shoes.
*We are taking the boys on a day trip to the lake Monday. There is an awesome swimming area and they are both off work that day.
*My husband just called to inform me that his cousin is in town from Texas. We are going over to my MIL's to visit awhile before meeting up with our friends for dinner. I have been avoiding going to my MIL's because there are always so many
*Do you ever feel like you do the exact same thing every week? It's like Groundhog Day anymore.
We cannot ever get away alone between work and the dogs and kids. My MIL used to be able to take the dogs for a day or three but with her illness and my SIL's fear of dogs (Finn) we are stuck here. Bah!
*We did stop at the llama farm the other day. There was this eensie baby that I wanted to
|Do you see that lazy llama?|
|Pretty sure that big boy would have spit in my eye had I grabbed a baby.|
|Laaaazy llama, baby llamas, mean llama|
Have a great week!!
