monday oh monday.

I firmly believe that Monday's are out to get me. I won't go into details to save myself from regret, but... let's just say, it is only 10am on Monday morning and I already want to pull my hair out and shove it in someone's face as I scream at them for their stupidity. AND if one more person asks me to do one more thing, I may cry. 

Maybe I just need a poptart? 

yeah, that's probably it. So, I will probably go get one of those. Then come back to my desk and try to get some JUNK done for the day. 

Also- let's hear it for the fact that this time NEXT WEEK it will be Christmas Eve, people. :)

wisdom and other things

It has been a while, hasn't it?


+ I am on "recovery" from getting my wisdom teeth out. It's funny, I don't feel less wise without them??? (ha see? I got jokes, man.) Can I just say, this sucks... ? Between eating like a squirrel (Aaron's words) to cleaning my mouth what seems every hour and downing tons of meds, I just feel BLAH.

+ We got our tree and I would love to share some pics of that soon! This has been our second married Christmas. Verrryy different from last year, but nonetheless, lovely :) We cut down our tree last year as well as this year as a sort of "thing-to-do-on-or-for-Joanna's-birthday". So, that was fun. It's all decorated. Nothing too fancy, and it's probably only pretty to me, but I love sitting and looking at it twinkle at night. It's so calming.

+ My birthday has come and gone. For a second there I had to think about how old I am now. 24. wow. That feels and sounds so much older for some reason. We had a great time celebrating it. I have never been to Ikea (CRAZY, I KNOW), so I asked Aaron to take me. Now, that is a post for another day, which I hopes comes soon because I don't want to forget the insanity that WAS our trip to Ikea. haha We lucked out and got a bed frame I had my eye on as well as some other items.

+ Pumpkin and I have just been chilling these last few days while I recover. She is the best.

+ Things have been put on hold in regard to a house. We were eligible for a "first time homebuyers grant" but, due to hub's little promotion, though he is only making a small amount more, it's just enough to send us over the limit of being eligible.. so, here we are, saving our pennies for a down payment. Oh well. The Lord will provide, He always always always does.

+ Other things are happening around these parts. Some things that I am a little "bitter/sweet" about. But let's save that for another day, shall we?

annnddd.. that's been life lately. not too much. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a snack pack calling my name and then I have to begin the grueling task of brushing my teeth and cleaning my mouth which takes about 10 - 15 minutes (if I'm lucky!)
