At least, that is what it feels like. We have so many projects in the works around here, and a lot of them cant be started until another one is finished. I’m overwhelmed and I don’t know where to start. … Continue reading
As I have mentioned before, my sister is living with us this summer. My sister + me (I, myself, not sure which one is right here)= lots of movie watching and chips and salsa eating. She is the math major; … Continue reading
In honor of the upcoming holiday, I thought I would try to put a cute table together. We haven’t really collected that many table decorating things yet, but I did the best with what I had. (I apologize in advance … Continue reading
That is what is happening around our house.
MAJOR MAJOR CHANGES. I am so excited, but it is a lot of work. I will post pictures of stuff soon, but for now you will just have to wait.
One thing that is happening in about 10 days is that my sister is coming to live with us for the summer!! She is finishing up her sophomore year at the University of Kentucky and is studying engineering. Since my husband is a Structural Engineer (her area of focus), she is going to be doing an “internship” with the firm he works for this summer. I say “internship” because since she is only a sophomore, she hasn’t had enough related coursework for her to do a lot of actual engineering work. But, they are so nicely letting her come and do some grunt work that needs to get done. It will at least give her some office experience AND be nice to put on the ole resume. That is the thing I REGRET MOST about school. I didn’t do enough internships. I know my teachers said to do as many as you could, but I was just so ready for a summer break that I only did one! People want experience. At one time a high school education was enough to get you by… then it was a college degree. Now you basically have to have your masters AND have 5 years experience when you get out of school before anyone will hire you.
Anyway… This is my sister, Katie.
She has that rare disorder where only your face ages… hahahaha. That actually is her… at Halloween.
Here she is lookin much prettier (and younger)…
Yeah, we look like sisters.
I’ll keep ya updated on the new stuff! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
I was extremely excited yesterday because we were finally having our realtors over for dinner! They hadn’t seen the house since we’d moved in and we have made A TON of changes. So, I had to set my work aside and be a housewife for a day. By the way, you stay at home moms, I have SOOO much respect for you! I don’t even have children and I can spend ALL day long doing housework/running errands and following the pup around to make sure she isn’t in trouble. Whew, it’s tiring. But, speaking of trouble….
I really just think I need to copy and paste the email I sent to my husband yesterday. It sums up my morning the best. In the the subject line I put: “Dave-READ THIS WHEN YOU GET IT!” With so many forwards and spam emails, how do you make sure someone knows this email is FOR REAL!?! …. and he tends to put off reading stuff from me anyway.
So let me just tell you about my day.
First, I was on my way out the door when Allie decided it would be fabulous to play in the only dirt/mud pile in the backyard. SHE WAS FILTHY. I had to close her in the kitchen, change my clothes, and start her bath. In the MEANTIME, she decides it would be fantastic to SPLASH in her water bowl with her muddy feet, and then track mud all over the kitchen. YAY. I had to carry her up the stairs, which I will not be able to do for much longer, to give her her bath. Then, I had to clean up the kitchen before she could come back in.
