House Fever

I feel like a lot of people I know ... people who got married around the same time as us ... are buying their first house. I'm getting jealous. I love our little duplex, it's awesome and it's plenty of room. But I want to paint! I want my yellow and gray living room. The yellow and gray living room in my head does not have tan walls.


I just have to keep telling myself that I have an awesome car ... once that's paid off we can save for a house. And I am very thankful that Garrett and I both have jobs that pay all the bills and leave plenty of room for fun too.

Nothing really

I just spent 7 dollars on something that will probably no longer exist in 3 hours.
1 box of Thin Mints
1 box of Samoas
(p.s. when I was a girl scout ... yes ... I was ... cookies were only 2 dollars a box, not this 3.50 crap.)

I accidentally forgot that Garrett hates coconut, but he was in bed when the next door neighbor's daughter rang the doorbell, so I didn't get his cookie input.
Actually, I did get his input ... yesterday ... when he said we didn't have the money for them this week and to wait until next week ...

But I will just say that having a sick husband makes me feel really helpless and cry for no reason, and the girl rang the doorbell right when I was in the middle of a breakdown and then she told me that I didn't even have to wait for the cookies, she already had them at their house. I was sold.

And in case you were wondering, 3 Samoas with a cup of coffee makes for an excellent breakfast.

February Blizzard, 2011

Well I am spending today camped out as close to Garrett's desktop and projector as possible because I am pretty sure it is letting out more heat than our actual heater. Either way, my toes are still freezing despite my two pairs of socks. Luckily my laptop tends to overheat which is making my legs nice and toasty.
I looked out our living room window this morning - there is huge snowdrift right in front of our duplex. I tried to open the front door, but I couldn't. Good thing we aren't going anywhere today!
The bad thing is - when the heck is this stuff going to melt if it's not going to get above 15 degrees?!

I normally think it is pretty amusing when Edmond closes school before the snow even starts falling - but the weathermen actually were right about the storm this time.

So. This week I am thankful for:
-A dryer to occasionally throw blankets into
-board games
-hot chocolate
-a husband who's body temperature is 200 degrees

Enjoy your snow days Edmond. 15 bucks says school will be cancelled tomorrow as well because it's still going to be freezing. Pretty sure Edmond has cancelled simply for freezing temps before now.

Oh. By the way. If you live in Edmond and you're reading this, you just survived Edmond's coldest night in 15 years. Congratulations.
