Through My Lens

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Today I:

Discovered a new blog that makes me want to buy as much crappy old furniture at Salvation Army as possible and make it beautiful.

Am wondering if you read my blog and don't comment. If so, it's Delurking Day, so drop me a line!

Am thinking it's almost time to release my new blog URL. Go ahead and take a peek. I'm not done yet, but I think it's fun and new - especially the category tabs on top. Feedback is welcome. (By the way, I decided not to keep my blog hidden from my family because I genuinely want them to know me. I'll just be a good girl and keep my venting about them private!)

Am grateful for my job. In a crappy economy where people are losing jobs, are being put on furlough, or can't find jobs (like Huz) I just got a 15% raise. Of course it means I'll have more responsibility and be more busy, but I can handle it. It comes at a good time since we've been without Huz's stipend for 6 months and daycare costs keep going up.

Am wearing my sexy vintage cowgirl boots and have decided that they are too cute to waste by just taking them off right after work and going to the gym. So I'm going to celebrate my raise with a co-worker friend by throwing back a $3 happy hour margarita instead.
