In deciding which is the right beer to have with our steak tomorrow. Mindy decided: “that one is more of a dessert beer”.
She isn’t necessarily wrong, but I did laugh. :)
Abbey miles. Dem hills, man. :)
~That one time and I dressed up as my dad for Halloween.
~My dad in high school.
~Or that one time I had to give an oral presentation and dressed up as the character….Mark Twain.
Sometimes just giving money is a much wiser (and safer) choice.
I am only half way through the list, but i have already laughed so much…so I had to share :)
Studmuffin, are you offering to buy me one?!?!?!
I also need an upgrade on my iPhone. I am on the 3.
I do take donations :)
Um…what are you staring at?
Give us some privacy, please?!
I woke up this morning and realized that since I had no kids in the house, I could get a run in before work. So, I did.
I ran 5 miles. I really wanted to walk at times, but I didn’t. Go me! And once I saved my run, I realized that I was at 249.3 miles for the year. So, I ran another .7 to get myself to the halfway point of my yearly goal. And once I saved that run, runkeeper told me I was at 245. What’s up with that? lol
But, it does show the true mileage online (250), I think my 5 miles didn’t update on my phone yet.
So, I am half way to my goal!! I am more than halfway through the year…but let’s not focus on that :)
My friend gave me a toaster because her sister gambles a lot and has an entire wall of small appliances. Well, the only toasters she had have a one cup coffee maker attached. I just thought it was the cutest thing. It actually works pretty well too! lol
And breakfast. I overcooked my eggs, but they were still delicious.
I worked from the dining room this morning with my view. Now I am at the church so I can save some data. My modem shipped, so we will see how soon it gets to me!
A quickie ;)
I am going to be a bit hit and miss this week.
I am using a borrowed jet pack for my internet. Turns out I was burning through data faster than I should. And that is with trying not to use too much. No streaming, etc. So, I went ahead and ordered Comcast today.
The modem will take a couple days to get here, so I need to be mindful of how much I use of the internet until then. I will probably work at the church tomorrow and Thursday. And then Friday I am at the Abbey for the weekend and of course will be radio silent :)
I did want to say thanks to everyone that reached out to me. It means a lot. You sure know how to make a girl feel special and loved ;)
Ok, I must go now and spend some time at the laundry mat! :)
A quickie ;)
Good morning, Tumblr!
I don’t have a stove (and won’t for a while), so it is baked eggs and toast this morning. I am not complaining at all. Delicious.
I got my makeshift desk set up. Boxes and boards. It works well.
It feels weird to have an office. I mean…I don’t need to pack my laptop and all my crap up. I just..walk over to the next room. Fantastic.
And eventually…will have all my crap organized ;)
I dropped the kids off at Mark’s this morning. And I stopped by the store and got a few things. Bath mats, shower curtain, foil, ziplocks, hand soap…etc etc….and 80 dollars later…! lol But, now I have shelf liners and can put the rest of my dishes away.
#1 goal for today? Get the kids clothes put away. (and since I bought a tension rod this morning, I just may be able to do that ;))
Oh, and HOPEFULLY I should be able to post about a run later!! Crazy week is over, so I am hoping to be able to get back in to a routine. Feels good.
I kind of really love my new morning spot :)
Made a little more progress today! Little by little, we will eventually be all moved in.
We took a little walk around the property in the back this afternoon. (the extra kid is Alissa). The kids got such a kick out of the water bugs. That is why they are laying on the bridge.
The Heuser’s brought in flowers again to church, so we took an arrangement home. Peyten picked it out ;)
(they often bring in arrangements and put them on all the tables in the social hall. people take the flowers home, enjoy them, and then bring the vases back)
I got my Jazz poster up, which always makes me feel all warm and cozy. (it was my dad’s and I used to stare at it a lot when I was a child)
I got my magnet on the fridge. Truer words have never been spoken. “Love people. Cook them tasty food.”
And I found my late Papa Hoffmann’s bier glass and my Peroni bottle opener. So, I am enjoying an Oberon tonight.
(if you missed it, most of my kitchen stuff has been in storage for the past 4 years, so its like Christmas over here)
Oh, and I finally got my fridge arranged how I like it. It is an odd space, so I had a bit of trouble figuring out where I wanted to put what.
Oh and both toilets are fixed and the tub faucet is no longer dripping at a rapid rate. Go, Mike!
The kids are quiet downstairs, maybe that means they are actually asleep.
We found out there is a button in the kitchen upstairs that I can push, that will make a buzzer sound in the basement. Great way to call the kids up for dinner….or wake them up in the morning? ;)
Now I am going to try and go through and catch up on all of your posts from today!
