1. I got a tablet!
James and I had been talking about getting tablets for what seems like months now, so we finally rallied and pulled the trigger today and went down to DataVision and bought ourselves some tablets. I am now the proud owner of a Nexus 7!
2. I need peace and quiet when I write blog entries.
I feel like a large reason why I haven’t been too active on my blog the last couple of weeks is because James’ schedule has been lining up with mine a lot in terms of days off, and when that happens… Blogging tends to get thrown out the window, despite having things I would like to sit down and write about. It’s not so much that he’s demanding lots of my time so much as he makes so much noise that I sit here, blankly staring at the screen and thinking, “GAH! I CAN’T THINK WITH THAT RACKET!!!”
I wonder how bloggers who have children are able to blog because of this whole noise thing…
3. I’m grumpy that I need to put on socks and go to the store yet this evening.
We need to pick up cat food and cat litter before we head off on vacation and leave our roommate in charge of the cat. It’s cold outside and I just want to stay in and play with my new toy.
4. We did some MASSIVE reorg around the homestead yesterday which had us crawling into bed around 7:30am this morning.
So, basically… A picture is worth a thousand words on this one… but I’ll describe it for those of you who might be blind.
So, we have this hobbled together piece of furniture we loving refer to as The Hutch. The bottom of The Hutch was a part of what I assume was a china cabinet that we found my the side of the road. The thing had fallen over between the time we originally spotted it and the time we got outside to retrieve it… but since the bottom half was perfectly good, we ripped the top part off and brought the bottom home.
Which meant when we got it home… It didn’t have a top. We happened to have a random counter top that had been acquired at some point prior to my time with James… and put that on top and it became The Hutch.
And ever since it’s been a clutter catcher.
Well, last night James got a brilliant idea to set up a bookcase that we had kicking around but torn down on top of it. So, he built the bookcase… We put it up on top of the hutch, and managed to use some vertical space to finally unpack all of my books!
5. I like New Years Eve way better than Christmas.
As I was reading through all of the other posts linking up with Sunday Confessions, I felt like there was this common theme of hating on NYE… which totally bummed me out because I’m one of those people who loves New Years. I think it’s because NYE is much more of a spend it with your friends type of holiday and it doesn’t have all the crazy holiday pressures that Christmas does. Even when I was a kid, I got way more excited over getting to stay up to midnight on New Years Eve than I ever did for presents and seeing family.
