So...guess what? I didn't wear green today. Not a bit. And guess what else? I didn't get pinched. Not once....ohhh....to be an adult.
Today I had the LOUDEST cough EVER. And I don't mean I coughed and it was loud ONCE- I mean I coughed a lot of times and a lot of times it was LOUD. I felt like I was a roaring lion every time I coughed...it was THAT loud. And it's to the point that once I start coughing I have to go at it for like...a minute at least...otherwise I can't breath...or I still sound like a lion...but purring instead. Make sense? Not fun. BUT- i am feeling sooo much better all around so it's all good.
The lady that yelled at me came in to the office again today. This time she didn't smell like poop. Then again, my nose is stuffed. So...who knows? But us at the office have decided that she is kinda the type of person that automatically...ALWAYS assumes the worst in people. There is NEVER an optimistic attitude. I hope that I never become like that. Where I just assume everyone means harm when they say something. I usually like to look on the bright side of things....I try to anyway. Sometimes it makes Clay mad. Like, he is trying to just vent to me about something or someone...and I say, "oh well they probably meant this....you probably misunderstood" and yeah. He doesn't really like that. So I've learned to just say, "I'm sorry." But...I must admit, I haven't mastered this quality yet. Try...try...again.
I have been wanting to show you guys this awesome thing my friend Lori did.
Isn't it awesome? (I took this from her blog...that's why it says "my wall"- it's her wall, not mine)...anyway. It's at the end of her hallway. Lori is the one that helped me with my chair and headboard...and we're currently working on bedding- you know...duvet cover, pillows, etc. Anyway, we decided to do a project a month. Her January project was painting her wall like THAT! She basically took posterboard....cut out that shape....and then spray painted the stencil on her wall! It took her a while cause I think she had to do a couple coats on each, and wait for one to dry before she could do another...etc. But I LOVE IT! Every time I go to her house I just sighhhhhhh and swoon over her wall. I kinda wanna do it myself...but it sounds like so much effort that I'm not sure I'm willing to put in....lazy. I know. But, I wanted to show you guys...cause I know you love a good project that turns out AWESOME. Oh yeah, and she did have to touch up a bit after...just some of the edges and stuff. But she did a really good job.
Today I fed my hubby cereal for dinner, did the dishes (that had been there a while since I've been sick), and swept and mopped our living room floor. It didn't take too long, or feel like much of an accomplishment...but I am freakin PROUD of myself. It sadly is a big accomplishment for me...I'm so tired after work. But the stuff had to get done....and I was a little motivated cause Clay came home and went straight out back to scoop poop. Yep, SCOOP POOP. Not a job I will ever volunteer. Or do if asked. All winter Clay said stuff like, "but I take care of the yard..." so...since the season has come to take care of the yard, I am just gonna let him hold up his end of the bargain:) I would probably cry if I had to do that. Seriously...I can just see it. I try scooping a pile of poo...and it breaks apart and falls on my shoe. Couldn't you see that happening? Of course I would cry...and then say in a really REALLY whiny voice "Honey I can't DO THIS!" Thank goodness that wont ever happen. The only way I am scooping poop is if Clay dies. Even then...maybe I'd hire a neighbor boy or something. 25cents an hour? Sounds just right.
Well...this post turned out to be a whole lot of random. Ohhhhhhhh well. I'm out. Love you guys.
