So first things first: My husband thinks I'm a murderer. Looky at what we found yesterday:
A birds nest right in our garage above our door connecting our backyard to the garage. Ummmm...I really didn't feel malicious when I said, "So you're gonna take that down right?" But that comment brought on some fierce accusations that I was in fact, a murderer! Apparently, I would not only be killing a bird, but a family. So pretty much, a bird is living in our garage and will soon be laying/hatching eggs in there. I told Clay one day he'll get pooped in the face and it will be funny.
Next on the agenda- this also has to do with Clay! Ha..you know the news has been NOTHING but THIS lately?:
Royal Wedding. I cannot believe how this has affected Clay! Sentences like this have come out of his mouth, "I don't understand the big deal?! Why do we care about this?! Are these not the people who wanted to enslave us forever?!" haha. Clay HATES celebrities. He hates hollywood. He hates people caring about celebrities. "They are just people. They are not any more special than you or me." It's true, but I'm human..and polar opposite of him. Kate's pretty, and this is dealing with princes/princesses...so yeah, I'm interested! And of course, I'm OBSESSED with celebrity gossip- I'm pretty sure you all knew that. Anyway, it's been pretty humorous. I told him to just not look at any news sites for a few days.
One thing I did last weekend was paint this old mirror turned chalk board for my kitchen! I've had this for like a year probably and JUST got around to doing it. I love it!
I also painted our table.
We got this counter height table (cause Dante basically could sit on our last table) and it can sit more people- it has a leaf missing in the pic. But anyway- Clay and I disagreed on what to paint it....again, like a year ago. So he wanted it brown (eck), I wanted it white. We compromised and did the table top brown, and the chairs and legs white. Let me tell you- it was HIDEOUS! I was so embarrassed when people came over. And trust me, Clay hated it too! Finally we decided to just paint the whole thing white cause the brown idea was just nonsense! I LOVE IT! It looks so much better now. Except for the fact that in certain lighting it looks like one spot on the table could use another coat of paint. Which isn't so great...but I'm kinda lazy and don't want to do it so I'm fine with it looking just okay in certain lighting :)
I have this major to-do list today. Don't worry, blogging is on the list! So I'm actually being quite productive right now. A few things on the list are...cleaning bathroom top to bottom (literally, I'm going from ceiling to floor today), clean floors, clean kitchen, study, and really a bajillion other things too. I'm excited though! I love having Fridays off.
Oh- incase you don't like the place you live, here's a little something to change your mind.
Yep, this was my morning wakeup view. April 29th. Oh, what? You don't think of snow when you think of that date?
Today I'll just hang with this cute dude.
He's a good pup. I love him lots. Oh yeah, another thing on the list is to wipe up slobber off the walls :) Just one of the many perks of having a Great Dane in the fam!
Overall, things are going really great. I mean- I made dinner two nights in the past week! Which is pretty impressive for me right now. I made chicken kebabs, and german pancakes. Not together! Two separate nights :) It made me happy to make dinner. I think I am going to try and do that a little more.
Studying is going good. I haven't gotten behind yet, which is great! I still have little mini freak out sessions in my mind, "What if I don't' pass this one?!?!!?" But I try to quickly push that idea from my mind and just say, "Of course I'll pass". I know that seems silly- you guys probably think, "If you don't pass, just take it again". Well...this test is expensive, and takes months to study for, and changes year to year, AND I have a deadline. So it's kinda pressure-packed. Oh well. I'm just trying my best and that's all I can do I suppose!
Alright, I think it's about time to go look up some Royal Wedding pictures and scandals. Then I'm off to my to-do list!
