Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

love from one of THOSE bloggers

So yes, I realize I’ve become one of those bloggers. You know, the ones that have the audacity to take up space in the blogoshpere and act all accomplished when they produce a measly 2 posts in a month or some patheticness like that. How dare one of those bloggers take up space in the “recently updated” section when they’re never posting and when they finally do it’s about the most BORING crap that’s ALWAYS the same:

“Our dogs are cute, I’m so busy, I work out at the gym, blah blah blah.” to which you respond,

“Wow, what a thrilling life- please don’t waste our blog-reading-time with the slothful way you talk about how sexy godiva chocolate is or how you have such a disgrace of a house you have to hire a maid to get your sickening life together.”

Yes, I’m ashamed to say lately I’ve become one of those bloggers documenting nothing but boringness. I’m not really sure why… okay maybe I am… but it seems as though the place I used to run to during times of “yuck” is the place I’ve starting running from. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m so busy and I feel like the worst blog friend in the world if I don’t write feedback to my favorite blog friends before I sit down to post (hence why comments are turned off today).

I’m not sure if it’s because all last year you heard me cry about the thing I feel like complaining about all over again… I really can’t pin it down. As I sat down to post I thought I would lay it all out on the table, but now that I’m actually here I’m remembered of the fact that all this “lay out on the table” crap is exactly what I’m talking about when I mention “those” bloggers, so again- torn.

Also, sitting down to write all about that “crap” is the last thing I feel like writing about when I finally do get around to posting. The truth is that I have lots of things to post about! You should see that goofy recorder of mine! It’s full of my “old day writing” nonsense, but it seems a little rude to post a million 3 sentence posts in a day, you know?

So, now I’ve got you here, reading my what? 3rd post of the month or something sad like that? So now what do I do with you??....

*Things in Q8 are fine. I can tell summer is fast approaching and I can’t help but wince a little at the thought.

Want to know something out of this world?

A few weeks ago the morning low was 45 and someone pointed out to me that it was literally 105 degrees cooler that day than it was in mid-July. Isn’t that crazy!? That’s insane! When you put the severity of weather here like that, well it’s just enough to make you realize just how ridiculous you have to be to live here.

Just FYI I’ve already broken a sweat more than once, so for my sake enjoy your cold weather.

*Will got offered a job last week.

A job offer so tempting I was packing our belongings before he even finished his story. After holding a normal conversation about the opportunity I realized what I had known all along, it wouldn’t be wise for us to do it. They have to know by Sunday, and unless I can find a job at the same place by then (which is a little unrealistic!) we won’t be taking them up on their offer. I am so proud of him, and I know with all that I am he deserves this opportunity, but I also know that this the timing probably isn’t right. So, we stay and wait a little longer.

*Yesterday I bought my authentic belly dancing skirt.

I’m so excited about it and I was just certain Will would be too. I put it on over my jeans and wore it for like 2 hours just because, jingling everywhere I went- just waiting for Will to be so turned on by my electric blue skirt with dancing silver coins- but no.

“Maybe he’s not hearing the rhythmic jingles? I should move into the living room.”


What’s up with that!? Apparently the NFL combine was last week and he had to check on “his OU boys” to see how they fared. Guys, I know you realize my husband is a huge football fan, but really- we need our own reality show or something!

*Speaking of me and Will- our 3 year anniversary is quickly approaching!

We decided not to spend much on each other because of the Super Bowl trip, so I opted to buy him some of the favorite John Wayne movies he surprisingly doesn’t already own. I may have shot myself in the foot on this one (because afterall, I’m the one that has to lovingly sit next to Will trying not to fall asleep), but I figured nothing says “I love you and can’t wait to spend another 40 of these together” like suffering through a John Wayne movie, right?<3

*I had a bit of an embarrassing moment last week.

Granted, it won’t sound as good in writing compared to me telling it- but I’ll try.

Wednesday was a crazy day. I was already 2 hours into working overtime and extremely ready to get off and start my weekend. Guys, I was edgy. It was going to be the wrong day to cross me.

My office is the only one able to go to the government’s office for things (ha ha, think of it like the government is the Wizard of Oz behind the big emerald curtain and only Dorothy and the gang and go behind it). When you go in you have to announce yourself all loudly (you feel like a huge idiot) so that they know that “an outsider” is in their office. Kind of like this,

“A freaking moron contractor is in the Hizz-ouse!!“

Like that, but not really.

Well, like I said, I was edgy. I walked in and announced myself only to have two random voices from behind their cubicle walls say, “You’re not saying it loud enough! We need to be able to hear you all the way in the back offices!” they then go on and on about needing to yell it, blah, blah, blah.

I had heard enough.Wednesday just wasn’t the day.

I dropped off the stuff and yelled, “Contractor leaving!” and as soon as I said it they answered, “You don’t have to say it when you’re...” SLAM.

That would be me slamming the door behind me while they were in mid sentence. I felt pretty good- and what a way to exit, right!? I proudly got back in the car and got ready to pull out of the parking lot, only to realize I had forgotten the most important item!! I felt my face getting hot with embarrassment. There was no way this drop off could wait until Saturday either, I had to go back in. So, I swallowed my pride and loudly annouced myself yet again. I darted where I needed to go, ran back out and made sure I quietly closed the door this time. What a freaking idiot.

That’s about all going on with me for the moment. It felt good to finally post! I miss you guys. I keep waiting for things to slow down, but that’s not happening. Hopefully I’ll just suck it up, deal with it, and manage to squeeze this in more often.

Have a great weekend!


To the most beautiful girl I’ve ever known~

Happy Birthday (again!). I feel so special to have watched you grow into who you are these past 17 years. <3
