Planning never works out the way you planned it

so busy/when i have a free moment i want to do nothing except watch tv.

school is absolutely overwhelming. i just need to keep reminding myself that it is almost done. yeehaw!

buying/building a house is stressful. i just need to keep reminding myself that it is almost done. yeehaw!

i am so busy with school, (but i do manage to find time to watch the many shows that i DVR throughout the week. when i think back on the many wasted hours of me sitting in front of the tv, i think “how in the crap do i get anything done for school?!” but somehow i manage, and have been managing for the past year and a half. i must be doing something right. i think i am a television-aholic. do they have a rehab for that sort of thing?)

okay it seems it is just during the week that i am busy with school stuff. i guess i subconsciously don’t allow myself to think about school during the weekends. my brain is wicked awesome.

i also manage to squeeze in a trip out the house (in between shows of course) almost every day. i went out there yesterday. they started staining our cabinets. they are very purple-y. i am a tiny bit nervous about them.

















random: the other day james and i were at goodwill looking for a gem and as we were walking in we were holding hands. when we got closer to the door james let go of my hand. a few strides later i reached for his hand and he told me he didn’t want to hold hands. he said that in places like goodwill and walmart that he doesn’t like to hold hands because “it is weird”. oh jamesey, you boggle my (wicked awesome) mind. it’s a good thing i love you because you are kind of a weirdo.

it feels like home to me.


yay for garage doors!                                                                                                                                          ….and bricks!














hurrah for kitchen cabinets!














                                                                                                                                  yeehaw for laundry rooms!                                                              and doors!





























practicing brushing our teeth at our new double sink vanity, of course:





























what would i do without my little guy and my favorite hoodie? i wouldn’t laugh as much and i definitely wouldn’t be as comfortable.

that’s twice now.

we have some new neighbors. they like to smoke… a lot. their stench has been filling our apartment on a nightly basis for the past week or so. two nights ago it got really bad. i maybe cried just a little. so james finally went over there to (ever so politely) ask him if he could smoke on his porch. he told him that i was pregnant (which i’m not), and that the smell was making me sick. is that okay, or are we bad people? when one uses the excuse of being pregnant (which again, i am not), i find that it is easier for that person to get their way, or at least to get sympathy. i wonder if people will believe me when i (one day) become pregnant, or if i will be like the girl who cried wolf?IMG_2205 i say ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

you know james is tired

when he does awesome stuff like this:

we had just laid down in bed to turn in for the night…

me: (groan) i forgot that i have to pee!

james: just pee the bed… and turn off the light.

gotta love him!
