We are taking a couple weeks to spilt guys and girls. The girls are taking the opportunity to share their testimonies. Let me tell you something, these are awesome women with incredible stories. So here is a shout out to my gals.
Ladies, thank you for your willingness to share your stories. I have been so blessed by each one of you and am so glad to get to know you on a deeper level. You girls are like extended family to me and have made my move to Houston SO worth it. LOVE Y'ALL!

We (or I guess I should say "I") have been packing like crazy. We don't even officially own the house, but I am determined to get out of this apartment as fast as possible. Needless to say, the apartment is a wreck and I have no desire to do anything about it. I figure we are moving out in a couple weeks anyway, so what's the point. Truthfully, the mess is driving me crazy. I love having everything neatly in it's place, with the counters wiped off. This is becoming less and less of a reality, now that Addi is around, but I still aspire to obtain this standard...... some days. For some reason, I think that once I am in the new house my whole attitude about cleaning will change. I will want to do it..... right? It is my house and now some random apartment. We will see how this works out.I really don't know what has happened to me. All I used to have to do was turn on some "cleaning music" and I was set to go. These days, I turn on the music and all I can motivate myself to do is throw some laundry in the washer. Usually we work to raise our standards, but I am pretty much trying to lower mine. If I could just figure out a way to get stuff done around the house without actually having to do it. Hmmm..... Well, once Addi gets older I think the obvious solution will be what we call "chores". Until then???? ...... I am still working on that.
............ and just in case you are wondering, it did make me much happier!Sometimes it's the simple things.

It is just one of those days. You know those days when EVERYTHING annoys you? Yah... that's me today. My attitude is horrible. I don't really know why, I just woke up this way. Everything is frustrating me and unfortunately, Addi is the only person around... so she is getting the brunt of my frustration. I don't want to be touched, I am mad that it 95 degrees outside with 78% humidity, I am tired of dealing with house stuff, the apartment is a mess, and there is an disgusting odor floating around that I can't seem to find the source of. AGH!!
I mean today day is the day where even everybody's happy posts on facebook are irritating, but then again, so are the downer ones. I am annoyed by the people who always post these happy perfect posts. I mean, come on, nobody's life is that perfect and happy go lucky ALL the time. Yet, the people who complain ALL the time make me want to write on their wall, "Get over it already". So, hopefully your facebook post is neutral. I mean, I know that I am being pretty ridiculous at the moment.... REALLY...facebook status is what is making me annoyed? Waste of time. Pretty sad when you are annoyed at your own annoyance.
I just really want to be left alone. I want to snap my fingers and make everything in the apartment clean and in its place. After that I want to sit on the couch and watch a movie. I think a nice fall candle might make me a little happier. Maybe I'll go buy one later.
Deep down I want to apologize for this grouchy post, but I am too grumpy to really even feel that bad about it. So although this really isn't coming from my heart..... I am sorry for this rather depressing blog post .

I love this song. There is something incredibly beautiful about growing old with somebody...through all of life's hardships. "This is harder then we dreamed, but I believe that's what the promise is for"

These days, when I travel up north during autumn, I go all out in my outfits. I mean, I pull out the scarves, sweaters, and boots.... anything that can manageably be worn in 7o degree weather is yanked from my closet and thrown in the suitcase. I don't care if I am slightly warm, I WILL wear the cute fall clothes.
We have had one fall(ish) day here in Houston. We spent it at the Miller Outdoor Theatre (of course). My Dad was in town for labor day and I am convinced that he had brought the cool weather with him. It was beautiful. We sat on the hill enjoying the cool breeze and listening to the Mercury Baroque Orchestra. We had a delish roasted chicken, strawberries and Cheeze-Its (random I know). Even Addi was in a excellent mood and played on the blanket for the full three hours. It was perfect.
