I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored...


Okay so I blinked and this week flew by. I’ve been so tired this week that it’s basically been auto-pilot mode. That’s not like me tho. I love to blog, I love to comment, but at work I’ve had to actually do work so my blogging time was cut way too short this week. Ohh what I wouldn’t give to take my computer & my desk & hit it repeatedly with a bat like the coolest dudes ever did in the movie “Office Space;” I think I have enough pieces of flare for the day thank you very much. Hehe. Tonight I have to do my submission for my Writer’s group which I’ve neglected to talk about lately but I am still a member & still struggling a little bit with my zombie novel. This year that will be one of my main goals to get some organizational handle on it. The group is helping but I need more drive. I’m hoping as the fall season rolls in & when I have my own place I’ll have the much needed quality time. =)


I can’t wait to move into my condo. Every day when I come home from work I glance hopefully over at my future home. I still don’t know my closing date for when I can move in but I should know soon. I took a lovely trip to Ikea with CJ & I’m looking forward to the day when I can take some of those awesome items home. CJ is a kickass boyfriend but he kinda gave me wayyyy too many boxes so my parent’s place is too full to bring home some more goodies. Soon tho.

Pretty much everyone I know is helping me out with the dreaded furniture ordeal. I never realized how much furniture actually is!! Omg couches are like the most expensive pieces ever! Luckily CJ has an old couch from his old apartment he’s going to lend me til I can afford my own. My friend Debra has an extra microwave to give me, with a spice rack & a bookcase she isn’t using in her place. My Aunt Mary has coffee mugs to give me, my grandparents have dishes & champagne glasses, & my friend Pat is making me a throw blanket for my future bed & …. It makes me happy. I CAN’T remember the last time I’ve been this happy. Truly.


It’s been madness these past couple days & it has caught up with me in a certain category. I was at CJ’s last night & he had a proper scale. I gained 10 pounds in the past month. That’s not terrible but I have a pair of pants that isn’t fitting me anymore. Yeah, Red flag. I need to go back to the gym & I need to watch what I eat. I was in the Shop Rite last night & glanced over at a magazine cover & saw a picture of Jennifer Hudson. Wow she looks amazing. I remember her on American Idol & I give her so much credit for proving Simon wrong. She has a beautiful voice & an amazing personality and did go far with her career. She’s so motivating in her “Healthy” transformation. She lost weight & she feels like she is at a healthy, comfortable weight. That is EXACTLY what I want to achieve. Why not start today? Sounds great to me.

I gotta rush to work, ahh the beauty of coffee in the morning, it really wake you up. I got a great night sleep & I’m ready to push forward!! Who’s with me? =) Have a great weekend everyone!! =)

I can so relate to your furniture issues! We did no have a bed for the first few months of our marriage and we got a free couch after being married for two years. It's so expensive! Well, have an awesome weekend!

Oooh I'm getting all excited for you reading this post! I know moving is a hassle, but moving into your FIRST PLACE is soooo freaking awesome! That first night you spend there will be in your memory forever. :)

That's awesome you have so many people helping you out and giving you free stuff. When I first moved, I made a facebook note saying i was moving and that if anyone had anything they wanted to get rid of or sell, let me know. I was flooded with people who had extra stuff they just GAVE to me because they wanted it out of their apartment/house. Stuff like microwaves, couches, end tables, coffee tables, kitchen appliances, dishware, etc. It was amazing. Plus, it's coming from people you know and trust, so its better than buying used stuff from craigslist or thrift stores. :P

Good luck, hon! xo

Jennifer said...

Office Space! ;D

Jennifer Hudson is a beautiful person inside and out, it seems. I'm so glad someone like her has the career she has.

I completely sympathize with the furniture debacle. We had NO bedroom furniture except for a mattress and a bedframe when we got our first place. I used carboard boxes turned on their side for our dressers for the longest time and it didn't matter at all because the space was just ine :) Oh, and don't forget craigslist...you can get some really good deals there. Good luck :)

Love that movie! One of my fav qoutes is from the movie:
"We don't have a lot of time on this earth! We weren't meant to spend it this way. Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about about mission statements."

I had it below my name on my work email, but I guess the people in the Army didn't like it so I was told to take it off....like within a week of putting it up! The quote is the Army to a "T"!!!

I'm Super happy for you! Have a fabulous weekend! Xoxo

I'm so excited for you to move into your new condo - hopefully you'll be all settled in before the holidays!

Maybe you and CJ could meet up a few times a week to go jogging together, or something? That may be a good motivator for exercising. :)

I am oh so jealous of you having your own place to move into (sooooo tired of renting a room) but having to actually get furniture etc for it has always stressed me out more than the idea of a mortgage! Glad you have people to help you out with it!

Blasé said...

Debra seems to be a nice girl.

Jess said...

Wow it sounds like you have a lot going on! I know what it is like buying furniture when you first move into a house, all I can recommend is beg and borrow as much as you can and it sounds like you have that sorted :)

gleenn said...

wow, good luck to the move. Getting a new condo and moving in is definitely exciting! :)

That scene from Office Space has got to be one of the best of all time lol. There have been plenty of times when I've felt a similar hatred toward a machine...and other things lol
