Am I Old?

Have you noticed recently that more and more 20-something boys seem to resemble......

...Shaggy from Scooby Doo?

(Geeky) Girl Crush

I'm not ashamed to say that I have a girl-crush on Brene Brown.  Watch this and you will too!

Random Update

I know, I'm a bad, bad blogger.  I have been so busy, but we finally found a place to live.  YEA!!  We officially moved in on March 8th, and we still have a million, billion (not an exaggeration) boxes to unpack.  It is crazy!

I've got tons to catch up on, but for right now I just wanted to share this photo so I can delete it from my phone :-).

This was left on our back steps the day we moved in.  Let's just say our new neighbors rock!

Hope all is well with everyone, and I'll be back soon.

Somethin's Gotta Give

I surrender.

The last few weeks have been so stressful trying to make progress on things each week, plus learning a new job where everything is a mess, trying to sell my house in Texas, being away from my people, living in this tiny hotel room, and then for the last 10 days or so trying desperately to find a place to live as all my worldly belongings sit on tractor trailer somewhere in southern Wisconsin. 

It's been absolutely insane, I've been putting so much pressure on myself and I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels on all of it.  I'm going to take a break from the blog for a couple of weeks. I'm sure I'll post here and there, but it won't be a regular thing.  Hopefully things will settle down before the end of this month, and I'll be back soon.

On the upside - spring is coming!!  Do you feel it?!  Longer days, a few more birds, not quite as bitterly cold.  I LOVE sunshine!  Just sayin'...

Some People Suck

I know that is not a very gracious thing to say, but I can't help it that it's true...

I was supposed to move into this house on Thursday.  The movers packed up all my stuff in Texas this weekend, and they are on their way now. 

I haven't heard from the owner in THREE weeks. I have heard through other channels that, after commiting to lease it to me for a year, he is now negotiating an offer on it.  I can't blame him for wanting to sell it instead of rent it, but his total suckiness in not letting me know this has left me frantically searching for a place to live at the last minute.

I gave up a GREAT house because the jerk said he wanted to rent this one.  As he became more difficult to reach, I gave him SEVERAL opportunities to back out of the deal.  Instead he has completely ignored all of my attempts to contact him for the last few weeks.

So, yeah, some people suck.

Do People in Sheboygan Read?

They must because I've seen a used bookstore, but I cannot find a place to buy new books or get a good selection of magazines.  The closest Barnes & Noble is 50 miles away!   Please tell me this isn't the only place to buy books!!

More Winter

You're probably tired of hearing about winter, but this is a new thing for me.  Last Friday was another big snow, and it snuck up on me.  I walked outside to go to work and it was coming down thick!

It looks like it was really early or late, but nope - these were taken about 8:30 AM.   Of course, I was running late (what else is new?), and I needed to stop by the post office.  It just looks miserable cold doesn't it?  It was!

Neat old light fixture outside the post office.  People around here probably think I'm crazy - stopping in this crazy snow storm to take pictures.  Very inconvenient, but really pretty.

So, this one was probably not the smartest thing to do, but I wanted to document how bad the visibility was.  It was bad!  I know, I know, I should have been focused on the road, but instead I was taking pictures.  Kids, don't try this at home!
