Randomness....4th of July and more

Friday, July 05, 2013

So here I am at work on July 5th, and NOT excited about it. I am just angry that the office is open and that I have to be here today. I know that being mad about it is a complete waste of energy on my part, but yeah, I'm still angry. LOL

I hope all my U.S. spark friends had a nice 4th of July yesterday! I got in the festive mood a bit (please disregard my horrid cuticles).

I also was able to finish my Pinterest-inspired picture collage wall so it is finally starting to look like we actually LIVE in our place (we moved in in January). I was waiting until we painted, but that will take a while, so I figured I might as well hang things for now, and then just put it all back up again after we paint.

My kids were sick earlier in the week and apparently Jax (my little guy) forgot how to self-soothe because although he isn't sick anymore, he keeps waking up and crying and calling for me. I'm sure that will take a few more days to sort out. An unforeseen yet kind of fun side effect of the sleep disturbance for me is fun/weird dreams...last night I dreamt I was on a date with Ian Somerhalder, and then somehow mid-date he morphed into Channing Tatum. Nope, my "real life" husband and kids were in no way part of the dream either, and I didn't have any guilty feelings. LOLOLOL

    Love the collage! I took the day off - otherwise we would have been open too.
I work for an insurance company and just scratch my head as to why they were open anyway. A lot of our agents were closed - and a lot of other insurance companies.
Bet they were paying a lot of people to sit there and do nothing!

    Love the photo wall and your nails! Sometimes I feel like employers should give people the 5th off as everybody does fireworks and stuff so late, which makes for a groggy morning. Chin up, it's the weekend!! emoticon

    Mmmm!! Channing Tatum :o) What a cutie!

My youngest is 6 and all of a sudden this summer he has decided he is afraid of thunderstorms, so every time one hits in the middle of the night he cries out, "Mommy! Mommy! Help!" and I have to lay down with him until the storm is over so I can "protect" him. Feel like I have an infant again. Looking forward to fall!

    Love the nails!!

I agree, I get angry about work sometimes, but it doesn't help. I've lost some loved ones these last few years but because they aren't "immediate" family I get to take my vacation time to attend funerals, travel and grieve, made me angry but it's life in the corporate world sometimes.

Gotta love those dreams!! hehehe! emoticon
