tired

I’m a little bit in the dumps.  It’s a combination of a few small things that in the end make me feel a little bit blah and little bit unsatisfied w/ my life.  I know this feeling is very self indulgent of me so I’m going to focus on the good things I have.

– I have started painting the office! Praise be jeebus! We have chosen the wall color after buying many many sample pots. Oh and we have a wall that looks like this…

I’ve also completely stripped the paneled hallway wall. It looks really dark but once it’s sanded and repainted will look fabooosh! The door is a cheap hollow core door and I can’t get the paint off it.  I’m not sure if we’re going to replace it or just chance it and paint over it.

– Squidge is doing really well in school. She loves it, has made loads of friends, has gone to a bunch of play dates after school, has had a couple of friends come here and has some play dates on the calendar. Gurl is a busy little bee!
Early yrs

-Wal managed to fix our car all on his own. Well with a little help from the interwebz!! I think he saved us a load of cash and it was really easy to do.

– I’ve found a class at the gym I love! It’s boxing and my only gripe is that it’s not offered more often during the week, just on Thursday. The rest of the time I just do 45 minutes on the elliptical trainer. Boring! Boring! Boring! I haven’t built up enough courage to attempt swimming. Would like to swap the ET for 45 minutes swimming 3 days a week.

– I’m planning a veg garden and my seeds have arrived! I am a bit worried about my strawberry plant that arrived this week. I need to keep the root moist until it’s time to plant. Waiting for it to get a little bit warmer, it’s not looking good as we woke up to a thick frost this morning!

So that’s it in a nutshell.  The things that are consuming my time.  I won’t mention my desire to find a job and yet not wanting to miss anything that Squidge does at school. I go to school about once a week for welly walks, emergency vehicle making, museums, PTA meeting and so much more.  If I’m working she’ll miss this… I’LL miss this.  I won’t mention my desire for a workout buddy.  Someone I could go walking/running with a couple of times a week.  Maybe I should put an add in the paper ; P
