I've been out of things to blog about lately, and haven't been spending much time on the computer outside of work, so this blog has been pretty empty. I apologize.
The Chick-fil-a around here is having free breakfasts on Wednesday mornings through March 26th. Josh and I took advantage of it this morning, and bought drinks to go along with the meal. I know this is falling into the ploy of the whole 'free breakfast' scheme... but I can't turn down sweet tea. Ever. The best part (besides the sweet tea)? Having breakfast with my husband.
Josh is building a bookcase! He's been wanting to get into woodworking, and this is a way to start simply, before he tackles larger wish-list projects, like a daybed & trundle for one of the extra bedrooms. We bought the wood & stain over the weekend (and found out that a 3'x6' piece of plywood doesn't fit in a 2004 Civic, and that holding it to the top of the car makes one's hands very cold.). The bookcase will replace the cheap Target bookcase in our living room that we've hated since we put it together.
Babies galore! I was commenting to a few people a couple months ago how I knew so many people that had babies in the last year & a half. Well, perhaps it wasn't only my perception: the US just had a mini-baby-boom recently. For my family & friends that meant 5 coworkers, 6 friends, and 3 family members had a new addition to their family in the last year & a half, with another 3 on the way. And, I did this count quickly... I feel like I'm missing someone. Babies galore, indeed.
I'm having a good friend over- the only person from my high school days I've stayed in touch with- on Saturday. She hasn't seen the house yet, and I'm excited to show it to her! She was never able to visit my apartment because of the stairs, so it will be good to finally be able to sit & visit somewhere other than a restaurant.
EDIT: Had to add one last Happy Thing: I'm not on Facebook. I should do a longer post about this later, but for now, the article will suffice.
