I could make this post all about how I haven’t been blogging regularly like I had promised but I’m not gonna. I’m just going to start with today. That’s what my friend Kelly said last night at dinner when we were drinking large margaritas, stuffing ourselves with tortilla chips and too-hot-for-me guacamole (someone had to have the guacamole chef add another avocado because I’m a big pansy).
I was looking for some motivation, some words from someone other than mom, dad and Robert that I have something to offer, some qualities that do actually make me employable, seeing as though it has been five months – five freaking months – since I got laid off and am still unemployed. What?! Yea. Tell me that might not make someone second guess their entire professional career and any potential for a future career. So what to do, where to go from here? That’s where the motivation comes in. And the margaritas. Oh, and the boredom. So much boredom.
With that, and considering daytime TV sucks, I had to channel my boredom into creativity. I’ve done lots of stuff around the house. We are currently doing a wainscoting project in the front hallway, along with re-painting the hallway (not too many posts before this is the one where we painted it yellow – which apparently is too happy for my current state). I updated the colors in our great room from ‘rainbow’ to soft blues and neutrals (still working on getting the curtains though. Or the material to make curtains.) I’ve painted wooden signs for us and for friends (one for our friends Sarah and Lee for their new baby girl with the Dr. Seuss quote “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” which I love). It’s funny the things you find to do to occupy your time – even if it means watching back-to-back episodes of What Not to Wear and A Baby Story. Usually it isn’t intentional, but if a woman proclaiming she only wants a natural birth doesn’t reel you in for the whole show, I don’t know what will.
‘Tis quite the exciting life right now, huh? I hope to be back soon with something a little more meaty, and heck, maybe even some pictures with updates, but that’s if I can tear myself away from Make Room for Multiples in the near future 🙂 (oh, and Teen Mom…dramaaa)
