Stuttering Shell: vendredi.

Friday, July 22, 2011


i was doing so well with the blog posts and then...BOOM...nothing. of course, i relied on scheduled posts for the past week. scheduling posts is great & all, but they require some actual thought and time...two things i may or may not have at this very moment. oh, who am i kidding, i'm just freakin' lazy.
  • i have a date with my washer & dryer today. i have a bad habit of putting off laundry until it's out of control. well, it's out of control & i need clothes to pack for the weekend since we're going to see my parents.
  • speaking of my parents, they are awesome. why? because they just are. never mind the fact that in another month or so i'll be driving a minivan* again thanks to them. {we're switching cars, basically. i'm giving my altima** to them & they're giving their quest to me. take that crazy car dealers who keep sending us whack ass finance offers in the mail!}
  • the hubs & i saw hp7, part 2 on 3d. it was nothing short of spectacular
  • the best part about going to the movies this week? how about the fact that we used a mobile coupon courtesy of yahoo for a free {small} popcorn AND our nearly $30 movie tickets didn't cost us a dime {well, technically, it cost $9} thanks to taking advantage of a living social fandango deal a month or so ago. moral of this story? if living social EVER does a "2 movie tickets for $9" it! 
  • i have a bug picture lined up for {semi} wordless wednesday on the 27th. bugs seem to be my wednesday thang.
  • speaking of bugs, something killed our squash & zucchini plants. but, i suppose this is what we get considering we do NOT spray our garden with pesticides at all. 
  • i have a job interview on monday morning. that is all.
  • my grad school semester starts in just over a month. i wish it was going to be my last semester, but it's not. i'll be finished in the fall of 2012, so i've only got one more year left. yay!
  • speaking of school, my husband is talking about going back to school. he wants to study structural engineering. um, yeah...don't get me wrong. i'm super supportive of his decision and, at the same time, i'm just glad he's good at math.
  • i've been pretty mopey & down in the dumps lately. the last few years have been rough. but, i keep reminding myself to take notice of all of the wonderful things in my life: true friends, family, my home, my children, my health, school, etc. there's so much i could share with you all about my family's experiences of the past {nearly} three years, but i'd rather not.
  • i had a very humbling experience yesterday afternoon. very humbling.
there is more, but this is enough. it's friday. it's hot as hell outside...already. i've got a house to clean, laundry to wash & errands to run. 

* put away all of your misconceptions about minivans. i don't care if you don't like them or say you'll never drive one. i was the same way at one point, too...until i leased a honda odyssey {the hot-essy}. hooked. it was a sad day when we brought it back to the dealer & drove off in the altima. you try taking a road trip with two kids, two adults & two dogs in a four door mid-sized sedan. yep, you'll be screaming for a minivan, too. so, ease up on the haterade & let me enjoy this moment, okay?
** the altima used to be my mom's car. i bought it for $1.

I hope your job interview goes well next week. I am also super jealous that you have seen HP7 already.

Also, blogging is way hard. It is like merrr, maybe I can post a picture of my dirty laundry pile and let people name the monsters? I get it though, don't feel bad about it. Write when you feel inspired.

I love how honest you are in your blog posts :) And I agree, blogging can definitely get hard. I have lots my power on blogging BUT things are turning around (or so I am hoping) and I plan on crafting this weekend (or so I hope!) and I am hoping I can get back to commenting more... so I've got lots to do!

We did the Living Social deal too! Totally worth it!

HP7 was great. We loved it too!
