Getting caught up.

January 25, 2011

I don’t feel like I can say school, work and moving has been overwhelming, but for some reason I’ve felt too busy to keep you important people (I’m talking to you Auntie G.) up to date. I really did have a lot of help moving and school is actually going pretty well so far this semester. So here’s an array of pictures to make you roll your eyes at. 

Yup. That’s Storage Baby. I took advantage of a recent baby day event to snap some polaroids. I need to get that heart below finished up and hanging on the wall. I miscalculated and need to order another pack of film. argh.

The Goodwill dresser event was quite embarrassing. I braved the 50% off Saturday morning adventure. I have never seen such a mix of people waiting outside the doors of a store before. It rivaled a black friday at Walmart. There was an old guy in overalls who was practicing his comedy routine. That was pretty good stuff. Back to the embarrassing part. That consisted of convincing two teenage boys to load the dresser into the poor lil’ buggy and then driving it sloooowly down the road back home. I didn’t have rope so the poor boys had to use bright green yarn to secure the hatch. I was just grateful it didn’t bounce out of the car into the middle of an intersection. Now knowing what to do, I probably would have just driven home without it. Actually no. I would have stood in the middle of the street with an “oopsies” look on my face and hand on a hip… contemplating.

Since Frank is still in the process of getting all his shots, I can’t take him to the groomers yet. I sure don’t want to trim all the hair by his private parts, so he gets lots of baths instead. At least he cleans up his own pee messes with his mop of a hair situation, but then the poop starts hiding in that mop and things get messy. We continue learning together.

This was the most exciting white elephant gift I have ever received. I have tried multiple times to purchase an electric pencil sharpener for my desk at work and they either start out broken or end up that way. When I saw someone open this doozy at a Christmas party, I admit that I squealed and was able to finagle the trades needed to take this lil’ guy home. I think I may have frightened the other guests with my enthusiasm. Oh well. They’ll get used to it eventually.

This Robot Man was an awesome clearance find at Target and fits perfectly on one of my favorite Christmas gifts ever.

I finally got a bike and have moved close enough to work that I can ride it there. I love it. Of course I had to accessorize with the Robot Man and obnoxious basket on the back. It’s pretty much perfect. I have only had a few close calls, but haven’t fallen over yet! Those stories are for another day. I have to thank that cute guy Jonathon, down below for surprising me with the bike. Remember him from the impromptu beach trip? Yea, he’s still around taking me to dinner & movies, spoiling me and whatnot. I kinda like it that way. Sadly I ruin all of the pictures with my level of photogenic quality, so this is pretty much the only ‘decent’ one I can use for now.

Gotta say I’ve been a pretty happy girl lately. Now if only I can get it in gear with this internship and applications. gah.

    I am really glad the dresser didn’t fall out. Can I ride the bike when I come visit?

    Your Auntie “G” is glad you are writting your blog. It always brings a smile to my face. What nationality is Frank? I think Snoozer would like him.

      Oh I think he’d make a great friend for Snoozer. Frank is a shih tzu and yorkie mix… shorkie.

    I actually stopped breathing for a moment when I saw that huge thing in the back of Stella~you are grounded! Frankie is cute. Who is Jonathon? Just kind of slide that in didn’t you…. I like that robot thingy on your bike and be sure to put a helmet on Frankie!
