Random Updates

The knee hurt like hell after going back to the gym last week. I was off for two weeks while I let it "heal." "Heal" because the X-Ray and MRI both said nothing was wrong with the knee. Go freakin' figure. Mystery ailments are the story of my life.

Taking off on Tuesday for a 4 day weekend. I TOTALLY need a break from my job and all the craziness that is my boss and coworkers and current work situation. New job please fall into my lap. Thank you.

The office aside from the ugly children's ceiling fan is now complete. Hallelujah!

The master bedroom has also gone under a mini-reno as well. New bedding, new curtains, removal of a bookcase and the installation of some floating shelves. I'm going to use my 4 day weekend to make a headboard, buy the remaining curtain panel, and possibly the 3rd floating shelf if I can find it.

Would like to tackle the master bath after the bedroom is done. New vanity, framing the mirror and a new light fixture to come.

John and I replaced parts of the toilet in the master bath last weekend. We installed everything, flushed it several times and then broke it. Took it apart, put it back together again, and it worked. Can't get the whole flushing thing back to normal, but I rather hold the handle a second longer than have a running toilet.

We will tackle the jungle that is the backyard this weekend. Or I should say, John will tackle the jungle. I have to find Riley somewhere among the knee high grass first.

Hoping for nice weather so I can spend 4 days sitting on the porch again. Sigh...

Missing my Virg. I may go see her one of the 4 days I'm off. She doesn't know this yet. :) I may also force her to go with me to try on additional bridesmaid dresses at a store in Austin. It's not fun when all the dresses you picked are from the new line that hasn't yet made it into the stores. Or when your hips are the size of Mt. Rushmore and none of the dresses fit anyways.

Really want to buy some new clothes. Have decided that I cannot shop until I lose 5 pounds. Every 5 pounds (the goal is 20) I am allowed to buy something for myself. Hopefully this will work.

Go back to the endo on the 1st. Hopefully I won't have to go through this again, but I'm also convinced that something is wrong with it and that's why my hips are the size of Mt. Rushmore and I haven't lost any weight despite regularly working out since February. This is probably all in my head and test results (as usual) will reveal that absolutely nothing in wrong and my thyroid is just GIANT.

The garden has gone insane. I've picked 3 tomatoes so far and 3 bell peppers. I have 9 squash growing on 1 plant and 8 on another. Anyone want some squash? I don't know what I was thinking when I got 2. I also have a gazillion tomatoes on my other two plants (the 3 came from the small one). I have about 5 zucchini and only 2 cucumbers that I can find. I don't get the cucumber plant because it has a million flowers, but only 2 have become veggies. I guess it's good because I don't know what I would do with a million cucumbers. Hourly face masks?

Umm...I think that's it, for now at least. I'm sure there is more, but I need to go eat lunch.


  1. Me too! Sorry I missed bunco tonight I was exhausted and crashed when I got home and just woke up!

    P.s. how dare you for posting about renos with no pics!

  2. Sorry K - haven't had time for any pics just yet. Maybe suring my 4 day weekend I'll get some things done.
