Friday is my second favorite F word

On Tuesday I thought it was Thursday, on Thursday I thought it was Wednesday. It has been one messed up week.

I was so excited when I moved into the house, to decorate my mantle. It was one of the things that drew me to the house. I've been here 2 weeks now and I haven't hung any decorations up. I just don't know what to do with it now that I have it. Here it is before I moved in. It not much better now.

Emmy has signed up for Cross Country, which I call track (hello! running is involved) and keep getting corrected. I was excited because her practice is beside Abbey's. She should be done a few minutes before Abbey, except they have been getting out an hour early. It makes me happy I moved a mile from the school. I can actually go home between the two.

I found myself needing a trivet. I remembered I had tiles, I bought at the Habitat resale store, with some tracing and painting I made several that I love. These two are my faves.
Abbey had been begging to go to the local fair. Some friends of hers were going so I dropped her off. I swear the guys taking money from the cars talked to the car in front of me for 20 minutes. I started to turn around in the lane and leave but he stopped me from turning around, I apologized for breaking up his family reunion. He said he was doing business, but unless you have to take your shoes off to count  that high, it shouldn't take that long to say ok 5 people at whatever admission.I really find myself losing all patience these days.

  1. Mantles and shelves are hard to style, I usually throw some stuff up there and then move it around and switch things out over time until I love it.
