Sheesh.. where does the time go? I get ready to post, then someone calls.. “Mom, I forgot my lunch/cleats/PE Clothes” or “Honey.. can you do ________” insert MANY phrases here! Then yesterday Hubs comes home from PT late.. I just figured he got tied up in a game of 3 on 3 basketball or the CO needed something.. whatever, then I see him limping up the driveway. He was doing crossfit (A type of training that uses endurance, running, etc) and he stepped off the curb wrong during a sprint. Luckily his Medical Chief was right behind him. He drove him to the hospital for x-rays.. no break, just a severe sprain is all they could see. It looked like he had an egg stuck in his ankle it swelled so badly. So, he was home ALLLLL DAYYYYY yesterday. So, naturally, I got nothing done. I had big plans to move the kitchen furniture around. It is the MOST awkward room in our house, and I am trying to find a way to get my table under the chandelier.. not over to the side of it. Annoying.. the joke around here is that the Housing office hires Design School Drop-0uts to design housing… I believe it. I haven’t lived in government quarters where the dining room light fixture is where it’s supposed to be. I mean, I can look at it and see that it’s centered in the room, but I don’t know anyone who, with the awkward layout, puts their table in the center of the room… But, I ramble.. I didn’t get it done yesterday.. or really anything else. Today I can’t because we are headed down to Everett for Jojo’s Football game early in the afternoon. When I move furniture, I need time to put it in several places to decide what I like best. Anyone else do this? I haven’t really done anything else around the house but clean it, and re-clean it, then pick up the junk on the floor, then re-clean it again! Nothing fun at all! That’s why I was so inspired to move furniture! Tomorrow is my day. I may even move the huge beast of a china cabinet out of the laundry room in there.. that would be kinda cool.. to find a way to make more room by moving in even bigger stuff!!! LOL!! Seriously, I’m laughing thinking about it~!!
I have been blog surfing a LOT lately.. I find myself at the computer for sooooo long! Its truely an addiction. My kids and hubs were laughing at me all weekend because I just sat and stared into other people’s windows (blog stalking). We can’t go on a drive, especially at night, where I’m not peering into other people’s lives.. I’m not trying to be rude, really. I imagine family gatherings, kids running around.. just like the movies! So, it was so funny on Sunday, a lady stopped by to pick up her Pampered Chef order (I had a party a few weeks ago, she placed an order, but didn’t come to the party.) She was so cute at the door, she said to me. “I’ve always wanted to come into your house” Imagine my suprise! She continuted “I drive by here almost every day and I see your big red star and wonder what else is inside” She was embarrassed, but I invited her in, and told her I do the same thing.. I’m always peeking into windows! So then, my hubs has to tell her about the blog stalking. She had no idea what it was.. or had even heard of a blog! She ended up staying about an hour, where I introduced her to some of my favorite blogs~ She went straight home and started bookmarking.. she’s a new Navy Wife, and doesn’t have much.. and thought it was so cool to get idea’s online~!! So.. thanks everyone for being an inspiration to me.. and to everyone who lurks around in cyberspace looking through your windows!!!
