A little bit of This, A little bit of That

Its been a month since Sam's birthday. Whats happened in the last month? I don't know, my brain is so fuzzy right now. Its Sunday afternoon, I ate a nice meal, I'm full and I'm sleepy. A nap sounds real good right now! :)

Actually this last week was pretty crazy, something to do every day. Monday I went and looked at a house to rent. It was a pretty good price for the house, and she said "HURRY and put your paperwork in (meaning: pay us $40) because there's been a lot of interest!!!" So for every person that turns in an application, they get paid $40, but I'm not just forking money over to people if I have no chance of getting the place, thats just stupid. Anyway, the place went before we could put any paperwork anyway.

Last week Dave went to play basketball and when he got to the van he noticed the window behind the driver's window (the sliding door window) was shattered. Because its safety glass, it all sticks together, so there was no hole in the window, just a couple pieced around the edge fell off. We have NO IDEA what happened to the window, but a really nice (sarcastic much) guy came over (I think he was on drugs) and was super interested in what happened, "ohhh, uhhhh, something happen to your window?! yeahhhh, thats terrible....soooo, uhhhhh, can I borrow some money?" For real. That happened. Dave told him no and he was gone. So anyway, on Tuesday we got the window fixed. It was so awesome driving around with a garbage bag taped to the window, as if we didn't look like white trash enough. *sigh*

Wednesday, I've blocked from my mind. But it involved lots of cleaning and lots of laundry.

Thursday was our Relief Society meeting. Can you guess what the topic was? It was on "combating stress". Ironic much? It was a really great/really interesting class and boy did I need it! haha We had a marriage and family counselor come do it, and her husband was there who's a naturopathic doctor. It was really informative and now I'm pretty sure I've maxed out my stress receptors in my brain and don't have enough cortisol to handle day to day life. Huh.

Friday was a day to try to relax a little, but I did give Bethany a haircut she's been begging for since forever. I can't remember what else we did besides make a tent on the living room floor and watch some stupid movie about horses Miranda Cosgrove was in.

Yesterday was the best day yet, my cousin Lee's wife Megan called and said she was taking me out to lunch for taking newborn pictures of her sweet Maddox, so we met up at the mall, shopped a little, ate a little, found some great sales at Crazy 8, and talked a BUNCH. :) Both our husbands were awesome and kept all the kids at home, so we just got to enjoy every minute. I loved it! Do girls realize how important they are to each other? We must not or else we'd be nicer to each other! :)

I've also been doing a little photography project, where every week I get a new prompt and take a photo for whatever the theme is. I've been doing it all year and am up to week 24 this week. Its been pretty fun! If you want to see them, you can go to my photography blog. So there you go for a little update, maybe this next week I'll implement some of the stress reliever tactics and I'll be able to remember what happened the first part of the month!

2 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

I would go back and recount my week, but I don't think I could separate Monday through Thursday... wasn't that just one LONG day? Saturday was pretty much just awesome :) I had SO much fun hanging out with you! We should do things like that way more often!!!
