I am listening to my clothes and dishes being washed- and knowing I will need to finish all that up tonight after I am done posting! I also have a very noisy little cardinal who loves our bird feeder by my window. He is not a picture perfect cardinal. He looks sort of rough-and-tumble- and is small. His little crest is a mess and he makes me laugh. He gets a sunflower seed, then turns and stares right at me. He is my new buddy. He has a girlfriend/wife who visits now and then.
I am loving my new little Shark Steam Mop. It was cheaper than the Swiffer-so we tried it and I do love it. It is great on the hardwood floors- and my tile! I feel so clean for these 10 minutes when I am sitting here typing and nobody is home to walk on the floors. :)
I am thinking I can't wait until my daughter Emily gets home on the 16th from her internship in Niagara Falls. We have lots of movies, walking, exercising, and sushi- eating planned! And some trips to Subway. She loves her Subway! I am trying to get all my school stuff pretty much done before then. Can't wait! :)
I want to learn how to add new fonts and use them. I read somebody's blog where they said something like if you still use comic sans you are probably 100 or something ( kind of like "You might be a redneck if you... use comic sans.") Spoiler alert: I still use comic sans. :(
Needing: Toned arms. Did you know it is a real thing that you can throw out a rib trying to get toned arms in one day doing Wii boxing?
Yes. It. Is. Another spoiler alert: You can't get toned arms in one day. OH- and if you go to the chiropractor for that rib- he will fix it. But when you go back for something else a year later, he will still make fun of you for throwing out your rib playing Wii boxing. (I still have the high score, though- so that has to count for something...)
I need a movie night with Jeff , too! YAY! Can't wait!
B2S Must Haves: My room MUST be organized. Must. It just must. I don't care if it doesn't seem organized to anyone else. Things must be where they make sense to me.
Next, I must have pens and pencils I love. I am not a pen or pencil snob. Opposite. My FAVORITES are:
They MUST be bold or you will just be sad. I had no idea they made this 24 pack!!!!!
The best pencil ever ( besides Ticonderoga) is this one:
My 3rd B2S Must Have- is a plan of happy things for each day of the week. I decided that this summer. I am going to make each day special with something I can look forward to- I don't have the details worked out in my head yet- but it may be - sushi for lunch on Monday, iced coffee on Tuesday, Subway for lunch Wednesday, etc. I am still thinking- just little things that can make my day. Jeff and I try to have a mini date night on Wednesdays if we can- at least go out to eat and get a chance to talk, cause the weeks get so hectic, and it is so much fun to have special things to look forward to!
Have a happy August! I can't wait to see what everyone else is up to!
