Stuff and Things 4/2

I feel like there was once a time where I blogged without planning things out.  If I were document my streams of consciousness...

-I have an illness I can't kick.  Two weeks ago, I had a sore throat for 2 days.  It went away.  Last Monday night, I had a sore throat, fever, body aches, chills.  That lasted for about a day.  But then congestion set in and lasted for like a week.  I finally gave in and bought cold medicine (why spend $12 if it's going to go away on its own?).

-I got a sunburn last week because I was outside raking tumbleweeds and then mowing them down with this.

-All of our sunblock was expired, so I threw it away.  Instead of driving 25 minutes to Wal-Mart (because Wal-Mart), I ordered some on Amazon.  I can continue my yardwork after my Prime guaranteed 2-day shipping.

-Since it's been warm, I finally gave in and painted my toenails last weekend.  Painting my toenails ranks as one of my least favorite things to do.

-I think I'm going to save the opportunity for a pedicure until the end of April.  I don't want to waste a pedicure if the weather is going to be unpredictable.

-That was a good decision (not to get a pedicure last week) because today it's supposed to be 50 degrees again.

-Last weekend, I found myself soldering a water line that leads to the swamp cooler.  There was a leak.   This is turning into one of those "didn't know I could do it until I had to" times in my life.  I still may need to replace the water line.  Fun stuff.

-I reviewed last year's Mad Men episodes in preparation for this Sunday's premiere.  I came to a conclusion: life would be better if I had an office.  Like, if I had an office with a door and a big desk and child-free workspace...just a thought.  All teachers should have offices.  They'd get a lot more done.

-There are 36 days left of school.

-Praise the Lord for that one.

-My biggest accomplishment of the week is that I managed to change the toner in the laser printer all by myself.  It ran out weeks ago, Scott ordered me a new one, and it sat unopened for 3 weeks before I decided to attempt it.  I'm embarrassingly proud of myself.

  1. you're cheerfully counting down the days to summer and I'm over here panicking at the thought of the kids being home all day every day! hah! I agree teachers should have offices!!! I've been holding off on a pedicure because I want to really enjoy it! I agree-painting my toenails is my least favorite thing to do ever.

  2. HAHAHA! I did the same thing with my pedicure. I need one badly and was going to get one but decided to save it for when I won't always need to wear socks and sneakers.

    I hate our Walmart, too, and we're contemplating using Amazon pantry just to avoid it completely so I applaud and support your decision to buy sunscreen via Amazon instead.

  3. Ha! I do the same thing with pedicures. I hate painting my toes. The main reason why I get pedicures is so they can paint them and it'll last a month, but what's the point if you can't wear sandals yet?

  4. I don't particularly enjoy painting my toenails, but I can do a good enough job that paying $50 for one in town would be ridiculous. It's kind of a moot point at the moment, though, considering the possibility that we may not even get ANY sandal weather this year. Last year I wore sandals twice. And froze.

    I can change toner in a printer with my eyes closed but soldering something?? I'd probably burn a finger off.

  5. I definitely used to blog without planning a thing. Ever. I just did it on the train in in the morning and then plopped a photo or two in before I started working.

    I hate painting my toenails. I pay to get pedicures most of the time because it's worth it to me. Nails, I paint on my own.

    Totally down with the sunscreen purchase on Amazon.

    I'd totally be hiring someone to replace the water line. I'm not a DIYer! I have limits and I know them. LOL

  6. The school year seems to be flying by!

  7. hahaha I totally do the whole ordering on amazon rather than going somewhere to get something. i can survive 2 days waiting on anything!

  8. Yay for doing those things! Our ink recently ran out, then the printer pooped out and Keith threw it out. I doubt we get another soon.

  9. You are tackling a lot this week! I am impressed with the soldering skills. I would have said screw it. :)
