For most of my adult life I’ve been laboring under the illusion that it’s impossible to be in a bad mood on a Friday. It could only be so bad, right? This morning proved me wrong. It was the perfect storm – I overslept and woke up to remember that I have a deadline to meet (which I decided to ignore last night when I could have been working), a meeting to go to that severely impedes my ability to meet said deadline, I need gas in my car, and when I say that I have nothing to wear I mean that almost literally because I’m in that awkward “between sizes” phase where my work clothes all look like they belong to someone else. YUCK.
The good news is that once I’ve gotten my project done I’ll be free to enjoy the day and it should turn out to be just like every other Friday. I mean, fingers crossed anyway!
So exactly what I was up to last night that was more important than getting my work done? Oh, just getting a head start on something I pinned maybe a year ago (don’t you almost wish Pinterest told you how long something has been pinned? I would love to be able to see that! Like, “Oh, hey girl, you pinned these 500 things 3 years ago. Wanna do something about them?”):
After all, there are only 92 more days until Halloween! Pro-tip, just because they’ve started putting out the fall decor doesn’t mean they actually have what you need/want at the craft store. That was a bummer. But I did pick up the stuff for this guy:
It’s so nice to have my brushes in this easy-to-grab jar. I like it better than the toothbrush holder I used to keep them in because it’s easier to see what you’re reaching for.
Anyway, there’s a certain series of athletic events beginning tonight. I’ll mostly just be tuning in to watch the swimming. And by “watch the swimming” I mean staring at this guy:
I do want to say thank you to everyone for bearing with me this week through my many “cop-out” posts. I’ve been in a pretty bad mood all week cause I have a lot of tough stuff on my mind. I’m not ready to share yet but I really do appreciate that you’ve been willing to put up with my fluffy posts in the meantime.
The good news is that everyone else in the world has been up to some awesome this week so I have some good stuff to share!
Basically, I want to be as brave as this girl is being right now. Seriously. I used to do a much better job of going after what I wanted but I’ve let my need to “be responsible” and “act like a mature adult” get in the way of actually doing anything.
I don’t see politics or religion when I look at these pictures. I just see an amazing love story. They made me cry the first time I saw them and still give me chills. Maybe there’s “hope” for my grinchy conservative heart after all.
If you’re anything like me you suffer from food cravings. Or delusions (maybe both). But is indulging those always worth it? Really? Lately I’m finding myself in a cycle where I can look at something and say, “I know I will regret this,” but then I eat or do it anyway. Yuck!
Wouldn’t it be funny if your Facebook would help you fill in the blanks behind people’s awkwardly vague status updates?
I know I’m out of the celebrity gossip industry but I simply cannot take my eyes away from the drama surrounding the Robsten situation. My favorite has been wading through twitter accounts of people who are losing sleep and getting sick over the whole mess. Are they serious? Do I care? No. I’m just laughing all day.
And so there you have it. Another weekend is fast approaching and I know I have serious plans to get some relaxing done. And by relaxing I mean working on more Halloween decorations. Hah!
How was your week? Got anything exciting going on this weekend? What’s your favorite part of the bi-annual large scale series of sporting events that kicks off tonight??
