Life sucks

It sucks to be me right now:
  • I've been sick for 3 weeks.
  • Woke up with another kind of infection... I'll spare you the details.
  • The new medication requires me to not drink caffeine. This is bad for a person who has two a day caffeine fix. 
  • My husband is working too much
  • He's also training for a marathon. This means he wakes up really early everyday. His long runs are on Saturday, which means he's exhausted all weekend. And Friday nights we have to eat pasta and go to bed early.
  • No internet at the house.
  • I still need to paint the kitchen, laundry room, and bathroom. 
  • I have no control over the radio at work. It drives me up the wall.
  • Ugh... no caffeine?!

Signs of Age

Dear lord, I've been thinking about oriental rugs. I think I really am turning into my mother!

We celebrated the day of love a day early since the Baddass had to work all day. It was just as well since he had yesterday off and spent the day making a fort in our living room.

We ordered in Chinese, drank Bosco's beer, and watched This Is Spinal Tap in the fort. I got him some stuff for his bar and he gave me (us) a zoo membership. Then I melted some chocolate and we dipped various things in it. It was pretty much the most perfect Valentines.

And then we went to bed early... no really, we went to bed. We both got up at 5 this morning. Bleg...

Joint Checking

We finally got a joint checking account a few months ago. Sharing an account has its benefits, but it also has its downfalls and temptations.

For instance, Valentines day is coming right up and as we were discussing our plans Bryan mentioned he already got me a gift as I probably already knew. I did not. He was surprised at my lack of "watching" our account online. He does that, so I don't bother myself with the stress of watching money leave our account.

But now I'm faced with a great temptation. Do I want to know what he got me? Should I check the account history? Hmmm... He was ready to tell me what he got me last night, so its not like he'd be so upset that I ruined the surprise. But do I want to be surprised?

Bar stools

Last week I got the urge to start painting the kitchen. I had decided to do a darker blue/teal on the lower parts of the wall, under the chair rail. The upper parts, maybe the ceiling, and the laundry room will be a lighter blue. I only did the darker blue and maybe in a month or two I'll get around to painting the rest of it.

Anyways, the new colors do not match the bar stool fabric. So I bought a couple of options. You can help me decide because I'm insanely indecisive at these things.

This next one has the paint swatch for the top color.
