I Can't Believe My Weekend!

I got SO much done. Maybe not a ton, but I finally got our garage clean!!!! That is a HUGE accomplishment. It hasn't been clean since they started to build this house. That was at least 5 years ago. It was so gross. I think I almost filled an entire garbage bag with dirt. I know it is stupid, but I am excited to get it organized now. I need to go to Menards on Wednesday to get utility carts. Is it horrible that I am jacked up for it? Yes I know...I'm officially old. 

I have big plans for 2 other, no 3 other, projects in our house. I thought of them this week as I was trying to clean the shit out of this place. I decided we are getting rid of the desktop computer and desk in the guest room and I am putting in a cube shelf unit instead. I swear, that damn desk is like a magnet to crap. The most random shit end up on that desk and I'm sick of it. Plus, if I get the cube thing I can put cute baskets in it and have one more spot to put picture frames and nick knacks. :)

I also am back to wanting to paint the kitchen. Alicia had really good ideas, but the problem is Thane. He is being so picky about what we do to the kitchen, which I understand totally, but ugg. He is concerned about what we do to it and how it will effect the selling of the house in the future because it is a central location in the house. Someone suggested sage green...another suggested charcoal (which I actually thought about too) but ugg I don't know! It's such a huge decision because people will always see it when they come over!

SO anyways, I got almost all the laundry done. I had plans to clean the basement for the Halloween party, but that will have to wait until next weekend. I got most of the upstairs clean for Staci's shower and I plan to move furniture next Monday and clean the carpets. Man I have a lot to do! 

Peace out home fries...hope you had a great weekend. :)

Mom of the Year

And the Mom of the Year Award goes to!!!!!!! THIS GIRL!!!! Why you ask? Ohhhh ya know. I was so busy talking to TT that I neglected to notice Bernie's entire head hanging out of the back window in my car and I proceeded to roll it up on his neck! All of a sudden Bernie starts dog screaming and I'm like ohmygod! What did he do to himself?!?!?!?!?! I turn..Nope! I just suck at life and almost killed my dog. I gave him a pet and he bounced back pretty fast though :) He doesn't hate me either..he has been following me around since I got home.

We were at a friends beeeaaautiful wedding this weekend in Milwaukee and during our downtime we hung out at a random bar.We were there for almost 5 hours all together and we loved it. :) Anyways, we met this guy who was there with his wife and I was assuming their son, big time wrong. I finally asked this guy why he was at a bar that was 30 minutes from his house and he tells us that they are actually separated  and he is there trying to patch things up with her. For over a year. From what I wasn't going well. She decided to spend more time with her gay roommate (not her son by the way) than trying to talk to her estranged husband. It was so sad. He was clearly trying and she was still super pissed at him about something he did.  The entire time he was talking all I could think was "Oh sad. I never want that to be me and Thane." It was horrible. I still don't understand divorce. I know there are a few reasons where there are no other options, but for anything do you let it happen? I literally can't imagine my life without Thane. I can't imagine not coming home and laying on the couch next to him. 

How is it that at one point in your life you are so madly in love with someone that you pledge your love for them in front of all your friends and family, and then 22 years later you decide you can't live one more day under the same roof? After 22 years you can't work it out?!!? The guy we talked to..they had to have gotten married so young, probably around 19 or 20. Statistically, marriages last longer if you marry after 25. I like that stat. :)

Well that is the end of my rant for the night....sorry to unload. I just had one of those epiphanies today, you know. I realized once again how lucky I am to have Thane. He is pretty fantastic. <3.
