Oh…um…hi? Good MORNING!
I know what you’re thinking…and I’m truly sorry for leaving you guys hanging for the last MONTH, BUT by the end of this post, I think you’ll understand. It’s time for another “Currently” post so I won’t waste anymore time…though I guess this will be more like a “Catch You Upper-ly”, won’t it? 😉
How ’bout we start with my bomb-digging MAKEUP? You’re gonna have to allow me a MOMENT of vanity here. Sorry I’m not
sorry MODEST, but when I got all gussied up to go out with the besties last week, I couldn’t help but feel like my eyeliner and lip combo was on POINT! And in case you’re wondering, yes, that’s MORE Rocksbox jewelry.
What I’ve been doing for the last thirty days issss…
Cleaning and packing and cleaning and unpacking and cleaning and having several emotional breakdowns and cleaning and MOVING Jason into my house!!! I should clarify that the mental breakdowns were not due in any part to him actually moving in, just dealing with the stress of it all and ugh…trying to figure out where to put everything. Yeah, no comment on that at the moment.
In between boxes and scrub brushes, I’ve been letting my MIND run away (since my legs are too tired to even consider such a thing) with Mr. George R.R. MARTIN. Damn, he writes a good book! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get to the second book in the Game of Thrones series. Luckily, I haven’t forgotten too much.
MODEST MOUSE. Yes, they’ve been around forever, but they’re still going strong. I got to see them in Nashville this month and they were awesome! And I haven’t been able to get this tune out of my head. How coincidental…he’s MOVING too!
Current Guilty Pleasure:
So, let’s talk about my good friend E. Muff. Oh yeah, betcha didn’t know Thomas was a gansta grain, huh? Well, not everyone knows, but after meeting for breakfast nearly every day for a month, I’d say we’re pretty tight now. He tells me things. I call him the
It feels like ages ago, but Jason and I had the MONKEYS the first weekend of the month for their fall break. It went wayyyyy too fast, but we MANAGED to fit in a lot! We had some great days with those two and we even got to check the last thing off our summer to-do list (just a few months late)…painting pottery!
Storage totes! Markers! Labeling Strips! MUST ORGANIZE ALL THE SHIT!!
But first…a MASSAGE!
I was pretty proud of myself when we had the girls with us. I cooked not once, not twice, but FOUR times in five days! And I may or may not have shed a tear when everyone went back for seconds of my grandmother’s MEATBALLS in MUSHROOM gravy recipe.
Everyone, I’d like you to MEET Kevin. Kevin travels all the way from Jason’s apartment and was the first to get settled into the new house (because…priorities). Oh yeah, and that’s the MUG I painted with the girls. 😀
The fact that due to outside forces, most of the MOVING (and cleaning) for the month occurred within the last week and a half AND we finished a whole day early.
Also? I’m starting to turn my black thumb green! I MADE something grow, y’all!!
Current Bane of Existence:
So remember my little toolshed? Yeah, how about a tool nightMARE! First, it wasn’t delivered when it was supposed to be. It came a week late. Then it wasn’t straight. Then it wasn’t level. THEN I wanted to pull every fucking hair out of my head!!! Sorry, got a little flash back from emotional breakdown #271 there. Ok, I’m recovered. But god am I glad that’s over.
Current Blogger Crush:
MEGHAN! Oh my gosh, can I just say this woman made my day with her glorious apple pie pancakes that were inspired by my Zucchini Bread Pancakes? Because she made my day. There, I said it again. While I was oogling her amazing pancake shots, I started realizing how much I miss her pretty little face.
Carving out time in this MANIACAL month to slow it down and savor some time with the besties…and this insanely delicious cheese bread from Blackhorse, our local brewery.
So MANY! My dad for helping level out the toolshed. My mom for being there for moral support. My girls for teaching me how wonderful it is to be a mom. My besties for helping me get away. And…
My man for giving me a reason to hurry back home…to OUR home!
Well, since I’m typing this up on Thursday night just hours after loading up the last box…PJ’s and a MUCH-NEEDED bucket of hot water with epsom salt under my feet.
Somehow, over the last month or so, I’ve started to get the hang of this whole decorating thing. Slowly but surely, this house is coming together room by room. Guess I just needed someone to claim some space to help me out a bit. Now if only I had a little more space. Lol.
bedbathandbeyond.com and target.com because? Easy at-home shopping with free in-store returns! 😉
MOTIVATED...that is after the my MUSCLES get the memo.
When’s the last time you MOVED?
What have you been up to this MONTH? Did you MISS me??
I missed you! And OMG! Congratulations! Moving blows but you’ll be in heaven when it’s all sorted out. When in doubt, throw it out. I wish I hadn’t moved half the shit I did from Atlanta.
Nice E. Muff. Tee hee.
Congrats on shacking up with Jason!!!! Ok that makes it sound like you’re a 19 year old moving in with her college boyfriend lol. But you know what I mean!
So jealous you got to see Modest Mouse live! I’ve loved them for years but still haven’t seen them in concert yet.
Aw I miss your face too, especially those sassy red lips. Ha-cha-cha. You look smoking.
You know I adore those zucchini pancakes, and I’m thrilled you and Jason are moving on up….and moving in. I love seeing you this happy. Totally deserved.
Ahh that’s such great news! it’s always crazy moving/ trying to find places to put everything but I bet it’s soooo worth it! We moved from scotland to Australia 3 months ago… I still don’t know how we did it! Haha!
