No good, Very bad day

Do you ever have days where you're going along and every few hours it seems like you might loose it and cry right in front of anyone who is around? Today was one of those days for me. I had a frustrating morning where I had to redo some work I thought I had gotten done perfect-- and now just redo it, but I felt like I was an idiot for not getting it right in the first place, I forgot to pay a credit card, so I had to make a call and get that ironed out, then I had to get my mom out of a pinch where she left her laptop at the grocery store (surprisingly someone turned it into lost and found!), then I was almost deliberately hit in the parking lot of Albertson's... if I hadn't noticed that the moron was trying to pass my on the right while I was turning right I would have been hit- then when I followed him into the store (I was heading into Albertson's and figured I should at least ask him why he would try to hit a woman with a baby) he said I was the problem and should drive better. So, then it just turned into a he said she said type of conversation, so I walked around Albertson's with a blind rage (my momma bear instincts came out for sure) and almost broke down crying in the shampoo isle.
Now I'm home. I'm not going anywhere or doing anything. I'm ready for bed and it's only 5pm. Cole's crying in his crib, cause we never made it home for his afternoon nap & I'm starting to think it's a lost cause. I just want to move onto tomorrow.
Sliver Lining- I got paid double for the redo job this morning, so that's wonderful!

Working girl

Hi! So, this week has been a very big week for us. We are getting carpet today in our sunroom. Then all we have to do is get the final coat of paint on the trim around the doors and paint the French doors from the kitchen into the sunroom. Oh, and at some point we're getting a shelving unit built, but we have to wait for that (you know, everything was just a little more and we ran out of moola!) So, tonight Caleb and I are going to watch a movie sitting on carpet in our new room! We're really excited! Soon we'll have a BBQ and movie night and invite everyone over. However, seeing as most of you who read this don't live in town, well, it'll be either very small or a different group of people! :)
I've also been working this week. It cracks me up that what I use to consider a long day now is a break! Sitting at a desk answering phones and talking with adults is a huge break from a 6 month old! I've worked 2 days this week and 1 day last week. I'm just filling in at my last job and don't plan on being here after today... so don't go thinking I've gotten myself a professional job or anything. I am going to be nannying starting the first week of September on Tues and Thurs. I'm really excited about it!
Oh, I have to say my hubby finally hung up a mirror in our room last night. I bought the mirror 2 years ago at a garage sale and asked him to help me hang it up and well, it got put in the garage and forgotten by him and sometimes by me. I would think about it every so often and hope that someday it would come and live in the house. And, yesterday caleb cleaned out the garage and found the mirror and I got it cleaned up and he actually hung it last night at 10pm! it is beautiful and amazing and I didn't even have to bug him- he just did it! So, yea.
The End

Charlie dies

I have been watching lost and I am so sad. Last night I watched the episode that Charlie dies in. This is why I shouldn't watch tv. These people have become friends to me and then when the writer kills them off, I am so sad. What's the deal!?
I also wanted to tell you that I am still an old woman, because I cannot live without my back brace. Ok, that's it. Cole is sleeping and I need to be working. Have a great day all!

I got this bug hanging thing on vacation! Isn't it cute!

These have nothing to do with vacation, but I thought you might like to see them anyways!

This is one of my pots in the front. It filled out nicely! I love it!

We got tile in the back room!!

this one is for Shelley. I took this picture when we went camping in early July and just forgot to post it. She said she missed the mountains and trees and I think these trees are really cool looking. So, I hope you can enjoy it! Love ya girl!

We're Home!

Hi. I just wanted to let you know we're home. We had a great time in CA on Catalina Island and then visiting all of my extended family. And, now we're home. I've got heaps of laundry to do, a teething baby (his first tooth broke out last night!) and I hurt my back, so bending over isn't happening. I went to the chiropractor yesterday and he fixed me up and put me in a back brace.. you know the kind older people wear. Yea... this week should be interesting. Wish me luck.
I'll post pictures soon.
