I can't sleep. I laid in bed for about an hour, and nothing. I was tired when I went to bed. What happened? I just want to sleep!!!!

I want to make a cardi-wrap for myself. So versatile!

I just bought Stuff On My Cat fold and mail stationery, and I can't wait until it comes in the mail!

Long, Rainy Weekend

So, we had a long weekend for Memorial day, which was nice, except for all the rain! We decided to go out on Saturday and drive down to the Woodlands for lunch, and then 1960 to go to Half Price Books. (Brad and I thought it would be a good idea to go load up on books a couple of times this summer, since I've been on a reading kick and my to-read list has gotten pretty long.) Well, for most of the drive down it was raining so bad we could barely see the road, and that was pretty scary. We had lunch at the Olive Garden, then we were on out way to get some books. We spotted a large consignment/antique store, so we had to stop and take a look. We bought a huge dark wood tray that fits right into our decor, and I bought an embroidered Mrs. pillowcase because I just thought it was cute.

Anyway, after out little outing, we didn't have anywhere else to go, and we didn't want to go out in the rain anyway, so I had to find something to do. I found this really cool recipe for Homemade Oreos on Smitten Kitchen through notmartha. I made a batch, and they are so delicious. They go really good with milk.

We passed the rest of the time working on this puzzle that Brad picked up at a garage sale. Well, I worked on it by myself mostly. Brad didn't have the patience to deal with all the blue and that black corner. It was pretty tough, but it sure was fun. I love putting puzzles together.

Overall, though, it was a pretty sleepy weekend. We got to sleep in, and then nap; it was nice. Something about the rain makes me want to be in bed.

I love this picture by Todd Goldman. It's so cute.

I've been watching Scrubs a lot lately, and I watched the episode tonight thinking that it was the series finale. I was waiting for something big to happen, and for things to get wrapped up, but I was kind of disappointed with the ending. So, I did a little research, and it looks like there will be a season 7! That makes the vague, cliffhanger ending excusable (I guess). I used to hate the show. I thought it was corny and stupid, but I started watching the rerun episodes that come on a million times a day, and I started liking it. So, now I'm hooked, and I would've been really mad if the whole show ended like it did.

Something Ironic

I printed out an article about procrastination a long, long time ago. It's all about why we procrastinate, and how to avoid it, bla bla bla. The funny thing is, I still haven't read it. I have procrastinated reading the article about procrastination. Will it ever end??

I am so happy that this week (after I finish an online test and write a little blurb about a class) I will be on my way to enjoying a nice, stress-free summer vacation. I will be working a lot, but I won't be taking any classes, and that's what makes it a vacation for me. I have been taking summer classes since I started my undergrad degree, and now that I have finally graduated and started a grad program, I think I deserve this summer off. I'm excited to get some reading done, maybe do a little traveling, some sewing, have a yard sale, and whatever other house projects I can come up with. I just hope Brad doesn't sit at home looking at my mess all day while I'm at work. That's the upside and the downside to marrying a teacher. The upside is he doesn't have to drive 40 miles to work each way. The downside is he doesn't have anything to do , so he sits at home all day with my mess and then he complains about it when I get home from work. Oh well. My summer is going to be good, anyway.
