Brr. Seattle has returned to its rainy and dreary state, oh boy!

THINGS I LOVE.

  • boys and their gasoline powered toys
  • black dogs who snuggle in the morning
  • reliable cars
  • metal lunch boxes with lunch in them
  • being on track
  • not washing my hair every day
  • cake
  • a cold glass of rosé, on the porch, after work
  • not staining your shirt when oily lotion got all over it
  • tattoo talks with my sister in law
  • fire extinguishers as gifts, not a gag gift either
  • pointy fuchsia shoes
  • horrible middle school pictures
  • mom and mom’s mom
  • apricots
  • crazy hair days
  • brown mascara for lower lashes
  • that weekly latte… I’ve cut back on buying coffee
  • liking myself
  • having people tell you that you’re looking svelte
  • nice fitted tees
  • Moop Bags. I think I might finally splurge and buy on this weekend!
  • planning ahead
  • have a budget
  • trying to figure out how to be fashionable with out looking like I’m dressing to young, to tight, and doing it on the cheap.
  • being 3 days out from a hair washing
  • the need for a belt
  • dramatic eyes
  • sunnier days
  • not raining while I’m on my walk

mmm, naps.

leave a comment »

The day may be absolutely beautiful…but if you are to tired to enjoy it, you really could care less.

Saturday and Sunday were both days for naps, and we took them.

Hopefully with all that extra sleep, I’ll be more focused this week. Last week was full of tough, weight gain and no exercize. Yuck.

I love your non-communicating ways.

leave a comment »

I really think communication is very important. It is so important in all parts of life. With lovers, co-workers, doctors, friends, and those who directly could effect some majo0r moments in you life. I probably over communicate, and I’m okay with that.

There was a weird ordering snafu at work on Thursday. I ordered a product and 2 hours later that product showed up on a extra delivery I knew nothing about. I tried to cancel the order for the following day, but it was more than 2 hours past the cut off time for orders. I explained what happened and the distributor was surprised that I hadn’t been left a note, they definitely had remembered talking to the buyer and arranging a special delivery for shorted product. There was no communication to say what the deal was, what to expect, or what not to order. Zero emails.

So I sent off a little email about the situation. The responce I got back was pretty awesome… something like “I had things going on on Wednesday and sending you an email about orders wasn’t one of them. Oh, and by the way you ordered way to much.” Fantastic. This is why I don’t really enjoy working as this person’s backup.

Let me say… I was rather happy to leave work early today, even if it was because I was having back pain and needed to see my chiropractor.

TGIF

Some times the best days off are the ones filled with your favorite people and their dogs.

Kevin’s brother in law, Tim, turns 25 this weekend. Desirae planned a dy trip for them to go to the zoo. (they live in Olympia, so Seattle is more of a day trip for them.) She called and asked about parking and Kevin invited them for dinner. And then Martin, Chris, Arwen and all their dogs all got invited. Kevin then told Desirae to spend the night and bring the dogs. 7 people, 7 dogs!

Pizza have been bought, lettuce has been chopped, a cake is being made. Uno and croquet will be played. Led Zepplin will be heard. Drinks will be had, and we even have juice for the pregnant Arwen.

I’m so in love with living in a house with a back yard.
