Current Events

-It is hot. Not just hot, DAMN hot.
I was outside all day on Tuesday and other than being sweaty, I was fine. But yesterday, just walking from the office to my car, the heat got to me. I was uber-nauseous as soon as I sat down in my car. This wasn't helped by the fact that it is a 30 minute commute from the office to my house. By the time I got home, all I could fathom was lying on the couch and napping with my head in Jared's lap. He's so good to me. We had planned on going to the driving range for a fun date night. I had to cancel that. He was nice about and let me nap then took me out to dinner anyways. Love him. Then we went home and watched Superbad, which is the funniest movie I've seen in a long time.

-Apparently I have new neighbors. The condo next to me has been empty for 2 years. This has been awesome, because it means I haven't had to worry about being real loud or having extra people to visit (they could park in that space). Well on Tuesday night Carmen's Jon noticed people going in and out of that condo and we saw, well, rednecks. The woman I saw was about 3 beers short of a mullet. The truck? A beat up old thing with a nice primer and spraypaint color job, with a bojangles cup on top. Nice. *sigh* I was hoping it would stay empty forever.

-I am still painting in my kitchen. I'm taking my time with the cabinets, removing each door, unscrewing the hardware, and then putting on 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint. After I'm finished with the top cabinet doors, I'll work on the trim around the cabinets. No hurry though. I like having an ongoing home improvement project. When I'm done with the kitchen, I'll work on my downstairs bathroom (the pirate bathroom).

Is Jared working tonight? I think we should go to Matt's house when you get off work and jump in that pool!

I've enjoyed our 6 home unit being occupied by 4 sets of folks...but now they've both sold! Boo. As least we both have one neighbor we love. That's more than most folks.
