But anyway, that’s why I haven’t been posting. Because that 1 hour steals like 3 hours a day. I don’t know how that works. Also I’ve been uploading my picture stash to Photobucket, trying to clean off my hard drive. This has kept the computer tied up in knots trying to get everything to fit through the tubes.
Still makes me laugh.
So my photo journal for the last 2 days looks like this:
While running errands we came across this little apartment/duplex neighborhood not to far from our home. We live about 2 or 3 miles from UTSA so there are LOTS of apartment complexes going up. This one struck me as SO cute! I just HAD to go back to take pictures. Luckily for me, their security gates weren’t functioning yet so I got to just drive through and take pictures. Most of the streets were empty with bright red curbs, and parking only behind/between the rows of houses. The other streets only had parking on 1 side so there was still a cool view.
Inspired by a link I stumbled upon to Project Restyle, I went in search of some way to revamp some gently used items, and along with myself. I have sunk into the “frumpy housewife” thing rather comfortably. Well this dress was going to get revamped, but the minute I put it on and walked out of the bathroom, Paul actually gave me a big grin and a thumbs-up (he was on the phone with AT&T at the time). So (1) wow, the dress is good as is, and (2) I was right, dressing up just a tad made him smile and that made me feel a little bit…lighter. I always say “this is what I weigh when I don’t smoke” but the truth is, I’m not HAPPY being overweight, just not motivated to do anything about it. Except maybe buy new clothes It’s funny how the dogs acted…like they’d never seen me in a dress before! And we had some AWESOME burgers cooked on the pit for dinner (so THIS won’t be the day I start my diet).
Patti Digh called Four-Word Self Help. As soon as I saw her site, I had to get the book. I picked it up at Barnes and Noble yesterday, and it’s been a nice little book to flip through in a quiet moment here and there. I love the artwork, supplied by her blog-readers to illustrate her 4-word quotes, and the quotes themselves have me thinking of my days in 4-word increments.
Clean just for fun.
Buy a new dress.
I hate my job.
