The past month . . .

I realize that when I am not bored at work I don't really blog that well. Hmm. This might be an issue. Catch up . . .

New job is going well. I hope it will lead to promotions and a fine "career" in the future. I'm still in training so my first promotion may be a ways off just yet. Jeff starts at the PT office in the next week or two. During my week off I read a couple great books - Water for Elephants and Forever Amber. Yes, I actually read Forever Amber. It was like a more raw Casablanca set in London. My favorite line was - "Amber is the exact type of woman every man wants for his mistress but not for a wife." This character does not emulate me in any sense, but it was entertaining. As soon as the The Outsiders comes in from my hold I can't wait to read that one too.

I also painted a couple of dressers to make a larger TV stand and conducted our first yard sale. I'm still waiting to feel inspired on the design for the pillows I want to sew for the sofa. When I get the Livingroom finally all set up I'll take a couple shots and show the before and after.

We have been having just a great few weeks of lazy hanging out - it has been awesome! This past Memorial Day weekend we saw Flight of the Concords, a bonus free show of Youth Group at Wasted Space and a couple movies. My favorite part of the weekend though was when our upstairs was too hot to sleep (who puts 1 air conditioner on the ground floor of a 2 story house? It makes for a toasty upstairs! I have Ice Princess coming to see what we can do next week) we dragged down the Futon Mattress into the living room and stayed up watching movies till wee hours. I felt like a little kid building a fort in the middle of the living room. It was so much fun! I think this may be necessary this weekend too, while we wait for the repair men to come out, but I don't mind, it's just too much fun.

Ooooh, yippee for a job! I'm glad it's going well.

Also, I love that line from the Amber book! Hilarious.

I'm totally impressed by the things you create for your house. I'm looking forward to the pictures.
