Two days left. Not even two full days, since they can't really expect me to spend eight hours tomorrow doing nothing (I've already been replaced), and I'll leave around lunchtime on Friday, never to come back.
I don't even know that I can explain what a disaster our home is right now. It's like a cesspool of stress (I think that may be the first time I've said cesspool on my blog)...Robert is in the middle of finals and exams for the most stressful semester of his life. And I'm, well...I'm me. Emotional, stressed-out me.
Here's an update to life right now...
+ My office is coming together, slowly but surely. It's a mess of boxes and crap everywhere, but I have a new desk and chair and monitor and it's going to be so pretty! I can't wait to share it with all of you!
+ We don't even have our Christmas tree up yet. I can't ask Robert to do anything for me right now, and I haven't had the energy to pull it out of the box to put it together. We've already built two desks, an office chair, and a nightstand this week. I need a break.
+ The good part about reading so many books is that I'm feeling motivated to write my own book. I had a really amazing day today full of good thoughts and ideas. I love days like that.
+ I think I go between feeling ecstatic and optimistic about the future, and absolutely terrified. Can I be done with this yet?
+ This is my new favorite song on RED. I hated it when I first heard it. And now, I hate myself. I actually made it the ringtone for my girlfriends. It seems appropriate. Not the hate part. Because it's fun.
+ I feel like I'm neglecting my blog, and I apologize if you feel the same way. Next week though...starting next week, it's on. Also, please forgive me for not commenting on other blogs right now. I currently have 978 unread posts on my reader and it's freaking overwhelming. I'm using that not-so-smart avoidance strategy with both my inbox and my reader. It's a terrible, terrible habit. Please don't judge me.
I do need your help with a few things though...
- I need ideas on how to display my washi tape. It's too pretty to be hidden away in a drawer. Suggestions? And yes, this is a legit question, since I have over twenty washi tapes...
- As an anxious mess right now (and yes, I know that I said I was tired of being stressed on Monday, but things change...) I'm going to beg you right now: please go at least the speed limit while driving. and stay off your phone while in the grocery store. and chew quietly. It's the little things that are going to tip me over the edge soon.
- If you have a shop or service, I would love it if you would consider advertising on Something Charming soon! After Friday, my blog will be an actual, grown-up source of income for me...so, I could use the support...sidebar ads aren't my only option (and they aren't nearly my number one source of income for my blog), so let me know if you're interested in hearing what opportunities I have available!
- I have this Kate Spade case for my old iPhone, and I don't need it anymore since we got 5s on Saturday. First person to email me gets it. For free, if that wasn't implied.
That's all. Love you.
Oh, I feel the need to tell you now that I'm writing this post while drinking a glass of wine that came from a box. Yeah, it's classy time up in here tonight.
