    Don't get too excited, P. It's probably on the top of his noggin.

    Almost said "head" but then thought better of it.

    ---

    Fingers crossed we hear from the dealership today. I will call at 2 PM if they haven't reached out by then.

    I think I am going to do a couple of small home improvement projects at my parents' house. The doors have sagged over time and I don't know how to fix that, but I can sand down the door edges a little so that the doors will close. Now is the perfect time to do it, since the doors are swollen in the summer humidity. Plus there's a bajillion layers of paint on the doors and door frame. The office door doesn't close at all and the attic door is a tight fit. I will avoid doing much else because otherwise I will get stressed out at the messy state of their house.

    I will have to focus on my own environment, like where on Earth is the rest of our stuff going? It's already pretty cozy up there and we haven't brought our computers over yet. Not sure how we'll fit Hulky's desk.

    This weekend, I will put my IKEA bed up on Craigslist. I would be including the slats (serves in place of a box spring) and the mattress (though not sure if anyone will buy that). The steel bed frame was originally about $150, slats were maybe $50, mattress was probably $100 (I can check the tag for the exact name and look it up). How much do you think I should ask for? I was thinking of offering separate prices and a bundled cost for all of it. Maybe I should just offer the mattress for free, since most people don't want to buy those used. I'm thinking $150 OBO with the hope to get at least $100.

    I'm going to talk to my parents about installing the pull-up bar. It has brackets the bar can slide in and out of, so we could put it in a commonly used doorway but only put the bar in when we're using it. Not sure how easy it is to get in and out of the brackets, though. Hulky's back is a mess from yard work last week and then moving (his dad and our friend did most of the heavy lifting). I got him a chiro appointment for Saturday, but the pull-up bar really helps him stretch everything out.

    Yassssss

    Hulky is picking the new car up today (bye bye blue Civic) and then picking me up after work in it Aahhh today is going to feel so slow.

    You know what's awesome? Having a grill. Making Hulky grill things is the best way to get back into the groove of making dinner while also getting a break from cooking. He loves grilling, so it's a winning situation all around. We need to pick up one of those scraper things though.

    Gas. They have a little charcoal one too, but it might be rusted out. Nobody has used it in years. Though we could buy ourselves one, since we have room to use/store it now.

    gas is good. Grilling with charcoal too often has health risks.

    Sorry for the crummy phone picture. The new car is sooo fun to drive . I'm kind of terrified of it though and it honestly feels like a rental car. It's going to take me a bit to get used to it. I already ground the gears once (this morning) ><. The sound system is nothing special, but mp3 CD's sound GREAT on it, especially compared to the tinny-sounding FM radio. It has an auxiliary port so we can plug in any device with a headphone jack to play music as well.

    I took Theanine Serene last night around 7 PM but forgot and also took Benadryl later. Understandably tired today! Time for coffee. Tonight, I'll just take the Theanine Serene! At least the mattress is less stinky (new mattresses from IKEA smell awful) and I didn't wake up with a headache, even if I was groggy as a mu'fu'er.

    My upper back is so tight and sore lately. We are definitely going to get the pull-up bar installed somewhere. If we can get it in and out of the brackets easily, we could probably use the kitchen doorway and just take the bar out when it's not being used. I need to work on my sitting posture.

    I drove today. I think I am almost ready to start doing Couch to 5k, but I have to get up at 6 AM and have everything else ready to go the night before in order to do that. It takes me so much longer to get ready at my parents' house because I keep having to go all the way back up to the attic to get/take things I forgot. Eventually, I'll get it down to just one trip downstairs .

    Sorry not sorry, kind of obsessing about my hair growth right now


    August 2011 (in Santa Barbara for job training, what a fun week despite having incredibly sore abs from a workout video and being lonely without Hulky)


    January 2012, right before getting it chopped into a pixie. Yes, it was green-ish from having dyed it blue in October. I was also experimenting with no-poo methods so it was constantly grimy. Not going to let that happen again, I have a piercing to take care of! If I had styled this length a little differently and kept it clean, it would have been great! The grass is always greener... I am trying to learn to love things about myself in the present so I don't have regrets. Seeing these pictures is encouraging though. My hair is probably long enough for two french braids now, but will be more braidable by December. I think I might go for some angled bangs (shorter than in the first pic) again, but not until I grow my hair out more. I want to have more length to play with overall before I do any drastic changes.
