Keeping it together!

It seems like there are so many different things to do to the house. You can really get lost! I feel like if I were more organized I might not have to make ten trips to Lowes and Home Depot.

Maybe I should look into getting some project management software!

That way we can break down each project and see what needs to be done, when, and where and what supplies are needed.

Another day...

So I called yesterday to confirm my real estate interview only to find out that they were totally disorganized and had not gotten the message from the website that I had scheduled an appointment.

The good thing is...I wasn't up for meeting today. Graem is sick and I'm just getting over bronchitis.

I talked to the business manager and we decided that Monday would be a good day.

Wish me luck!

Get the word out.

These past few weeks I've really been trying to get my websites more exposure. Since I've become more active with the blogs it's been nice to see my pages receiving page rank and quite a bit of traffic.

Of course, if I was serious about getting exposed I'd really want to look into going with a seo software tool.

With software tools you can see how many visitors you're getting and where they're coming from. I assume that my visitors are old-time followers of the blog and typically they have found the page by doing infertility searches.

So glad those days are gone - but happy that I was able to make new friends along the way.

I admit it...

aside from thinking Miley Cyrus is way to slutty for being 17....

I like her music and her singing.

There... I said it.

Please don't share this with anyone.


My eyesight is pathetic. Even as I write this post my eyes are watering and I'm squinting so much I can barely see the screen!

I've always needed glasses and every few years I purchase them. Most of the time I get the really nice, lightweight, expensive ones.

Then they sit in the drawer or under my carseat.

Until the next time I think I need glasses!

I think the key is to go with eyeglasses that aren't as expensive and have a few pairs in different locations.

Zenni Optical offers top quality glasses at amazing rates. That way I could buy a few pair and put one in the car, one on my night stand, and the other next to the computer.

Zenni's was reviewed by The Examiner and noted as a top quality affordable place to get eyeglasses!

Gotta love craigslist.

With us redoing most of our house we've had TONS of shit that we're getting rid of. Old blinds, doors, cabinets, and our fridge!

Today I was able to get rid of the blinds and tomorrow I have someone coming at 6pm to pick up our old fridge. They're paying me $75!

If I could get my act together I'd go through the stuff in the basement and try to post it up to get a few bucks.

POP goes the pimple.

This week I have an interview of sorts. I'm going to talk to the business manager of the local real estate agent about becoming an agent. I'm a little nervous about it because this is the first interview I've had in a long time.

Maybe it's the stress of the move or the stress of the upcoming interview but I have a monster zit on my chin! I'm all about finding a blackhead extractor to deal with the nasties on my nose too.

I thought zits were suppose to go away as I got older?


I just heard something in the kitchen crash and Margot say "oh shit."

Should I go find out what happened or just play dumb?

Weight loss?

I wish I could say that I was still losing tons of weight. That's not the case!

I've been trying to keep the weight off that I lost and I've been fortunate to keep busy with the house. Typical nights include painting and/or installing something.

Maybe I should just put out the white flag and find the best fat burning exercise out there!

I told my friend, L, that I would join the club and that was over three months ago. The time is now, right?

A night of rest...

I'm finally able to take a break.

The past few nights have been filled with me painting like a crazy person. However, I"m at the point where I really need to be able to see what I'm doing and we just don't have good enough lighting yet!

The electrician is coming in the next few days and I can't wait to have lights in every room!

Right now we're just going with the flow when it comes to home insurance. We've dealt with the same provider for over a decade now and truth be told we're way too busy and lazy to shop around.

However, I think once we move and are settled I'm going to start looking around for a Wholesale Insurance term life insurance quote.

Each time we get the bill from our current insurance provider we notice that the rate has gone up and we're not getting any extra services!

Boxes, boxes, everywhere.

We've been living out of boxes for weeks now. We started packing a few boxes a day and now we're at the point where we really can't pack anymore or else we won't be able to get dressed in the morning.

At some point we'll need to pack up the computer, put away clothes in the dressers, and pack away the bathroom.

Then there's the kitchen and all of the food in the fridge and freezer. We've been trying to finish it all --- but you can only do so much with canned soup and ketchup.

Pretty pictures!

We have tons of pictures on the computer. In fact, the last time we thought the computer died we were devastated to know that we might have lost all of our kids photos.

We have a digital frame from Margot's dad that is in the basement collecting dust. We figure at some point after we move we'll dig it out and Margot can use it at work.


Is here to save the day.

I must say that I'm so glad that we've gotten to the point where I can leave Emmy downstairs with her therapists and let them do their job - AND I can have a few minutes of blogging time.

This is a good thing!
