Friday Ramblings

I got up early this morning just to have a little bit of time to myself. I used that time taking a shower, drinking coffee and I may have played a few games of Wheel of Fortune on Facebook. I suppose if that's my guilty pleasure these days, I'm not doing so bad. I'm almost up to $8,000,000 wheel bucks. Just so you know.

Tommy has been half-sick for the past few days so I decided to keep him from going to daycare yesterday. I worked a half-day yesterday and spent the rest of the day at home, where Tommy and I took important pictures like this:I have yet to capture an awesome self-portrait of the two of us. Mostly because my camera has this like five second delay when taking pictures and you know, two year olds don't stay still for five seconds at a time, so this poses a problem.

I've told two people in the last two days that I need a vacation from my story. I've had a rough couple of weeks and I'm starting to just feel defeated all over again. I kind of hate being here.

I'm seriously gathering up some things I might be able to sell on Craigslist just so I can get some new clothes for fall.

Oh and today is the first day of autumn! Woot! Nevermind that it will be 90-something today. At least it won't be 100-something.

And speaking of autumn, a new blog-friend of mine is having a fun give-away today for a fabulous scarf. You should check it out!

In about an hour, I'm heading over to my friend Sarah's house to take her some of my unused fall decorations so we can spruce up her home for the season and have a fun girly visit. I will also get to hold her new baby so between the decorating and the baby holding, it will be a very good time.

Tonight I'm helping my friend pack up some of her house. And I hope I don't cry the whole time because I might.

A few days ago I wrote about an organizing challenge. And how am I doing you ask?

Well, here's a before shot of the junk drawer:
And an after shot: I discovered we have lots of batteries. Mostly for toys that annoy the crap out of me.
Yesterday I tackled the desk area. This picture is almost embarrassing to post, but whatever. Oh heavens it was messy:
And after: (And bonus! Even got Todd to install the new lamp we purchased eons ago for this space.)
I also feel like I should say that our master bedroom is really the only space in the house left to decorate and make over. And my cute desk shelves look nothing like I really want them to. The whole bedroom is a hodge-podge of many things and I told Todd that we really need to get on fixing it up because it may or may not improve "the mood."

My little boy is waking up. I can hear him on the monitor singing "How sweet da sound." Aka - Amazing Grace.

Happy Friday, Happy first day of Autumn!


  1. I really like your office space! You shoudl be so proud of all that work!!

    I am having the hardest time KEEPING things neat. That's a whole other area of discipline I have yet to cultivate.

    I love that he wakes up singing 'Amazing Grace.' So precious.

    Happy autumn!!

  2. Holy moly, are doing amazing with that challenge! :) SO proud of you!!

  3. Haha I like that photo! I think it's priceless, even though he hasn't stayed still for the timer! :)

    I also think your office looks really cool. LOVE the "HAPPY" sign! :)

  4. Wow it's looking good! I need to do some serious cleaning/organizing after the shower this weekeend!
