Stupid Toe

I broke my toe. The one right next to the pinky toe that seems to have no purpose. It hurts. It's black and blue. It's swollen.

I also feel like a turd hobbling around, but it really hurts.

I broke it taking a step up and it got caught and snapped. It really hurts.

Stupid toe.

Writer's Block?

I think I have writer's block. I've been reading everyone else's blog, but can't think of what to write on my own. So I figured I would just start tapping away at the keyboard and see where it takes me.

Work - one of my co-workers who I used to really enjoy before she quit and I basically got her job is now back. While I still like her as a person, I'm a bit defensive about my job, since she's been through it and all. It also feels a bit 3rd graderish since every time I see her she seems to bring up whatever convo, email, etc she's had with my boss even though she's working under someone else. But I know deep down she's just trying to impress everyone and get back into good graces from the way she left. I'm just being a bit territorial. I'll get over it. I have no reason to worry about my job, my boss called me "invaluable" the other day.

Marriage - its good. Still adjusting to living with each other. I feel bad for saying that. Everyone makes you feel so guilty when I don't reply "Oh my god, I love it! I can't believe I lived this long without living with him!" If you know me, you know I'm an only child with strong opinions. So we're not going to be perfect, especially at the beginning. We're going to adjust to each other's habits and figure out what works for us. Does that mean we're not happy? No, it just means I haven't ever had to share my room with anyone and now I'm forced to, with a boy no less. But it's good.

Life - I'm getting bored. I'm ready for something different. I'm so glad the Olympics are ending. I fully enjoyed them, every minute of them, but it was getting addictive to a bad point. I wouldn't want to do anything but stare at these amazing athletes. If I see that damn commercial about the runner pulling his hammy and he and his dad cross the finish line again I'm gonna scream. I cry every damn time! Also, I was ecstatic for Shawn Johnson and Nastia Luikin for their triumph over China. And our beach volleyball team of May-Treanor and Walsh. Dream team. Anyways, now I can leave the house and not worry about gold medals. It's actually a big relief.

I think I deserve a happy hour for overcoming my writer's block and posting a blog.

Twilight Zone

Ever had one of those weeks that absolutely sucks? One thing after another keeps blowing up in your face and you wonder how you've been living in a different universe then your co-workers, because now they're acting like all the meetings and discussions you've had together were non existent and giving you the complete opposite answers they gave you initially? Or, what you initially talked about just didn't "register" like I was talking Jul'hoan and just clicking my tongue as if they were words everyone should understand. That is my week and I'm ready for it to be over. I would like to start fresh with a Saturday. Now please.

Hair & Olympics

I cut my hair. I love it. And I have side bangs. I will eventually post a pic. One blog will just be pics that I promise to post. Drapes, hair, etc.

Other than being obsessed with the Olympics, I have nothing going on. Michael Phelps won his 7th gold medal and the men's gymnastic team came out of nowhere and won bronze. Go USA!!

Shipping Rod

Little known fact - if you buy a new washer and install it yourself, remove the "shipping rod." Otherwise your washer makes a horrible noise and you think it broke while it was transported two miles.

We finally called GE to repair the washer when the guy asked me if the shipping rod had been removed. You would think something with a big yellow tag saying "Remove before use" would jump out at you. You would be wrong.

My new favorite food are craisins. I'm in love with them and their yummy taste. Tart and sweet, a very good mixture.

The infamous drapes have been removed and replaced with lovely chocolate brown and light brown stripped drapes. They look way better than what I just described. I'll take a picture and post later on.

This past Sunday Dave and I went shopping and spent almost $300.00 without any money coming out of our pockets! This is why people get married. To spend money that people give them and to return gifts to spend that money. I highly recommend it.
