Not too much to say today. Blogging with a migrane so I turned the brightness on the computer down so low I can almost not see it (also probably not good due to eye strain but it was the least of the evils at the moment).

So I made a decision.
I am only giving hand made Christmas gifts this year.
Not just by me. I'm not that talented.
Probably mostly by me (that would be home made) but there is this AWESOME website that is all handmade things: www.etsy.com
and that is where I will probably do most of my shopping.

And we built a table. It was complicated in my opinion and a lot of work but I LOVE it.

Sorry, uno mas.
I just read comments by people on my blog.
OH MY GOSH
People are actually reading my blog.
I could pee in my pants I am so excited.
I won't admit that they are basically all family.
Oh wait, just did.
Love you guys.
Rainy day tomorrow...plenty of blog time. Yippee!

I spent the day doing wifey things today.
Looking after a sick dog (can I just say EWW)...who seems to be feeling much better now. She's staying up late with me, blogging, digging toys out of her box and bringing them to me to play with.
Halfway cleaned out the island in the kitchen. Still can't figure out why anyone needs four of the same pot so now I am going through and packing the multiples of everything. You have no idea how much room is going to be left after this task. It's amazing.
Went to the bank. Took an application to Hobby Lobby (I would LOVE to work at a huge craft store. Never take home a paycheck but would love it!!)
Took flowers from the party to Chad's grandma and wore my party dress so she would feel like she was there, if only for a moment. She isn't well. I don't know how well or not well she is doing for sure..there is a difference of opinion in people who spend a lot of time with her and people who just see her once a day.
It makes me remember my Papa. I never got to really say goodbye. I think it is important to be able to say goodbye.
And I still miss him. I am sure I always will. I think of him constantly, wishing I could ask him a question or get his opinion. I wish he could have known Chad. He would have loved him - two gardening, outdoor-loving souls.

So, Chad's first offical day at work today. Sad to see him go this morning but admittedly, I have a lot of stuff I want to get done in the next couple of days at the house so it will be nice to have some quiet, peaceful time to do it.
Talked to Chad's dad, B, on the phone a little while ago and he said he read the blog. I laughed. How funny. I mean, seriously, I didn't think anyone read it really besides Danielle. So I guess I should explain because he was like, "Hey, its B calling" when he called my cell...I used only his first initial, along with Chad's mom's initial, because I wasn't sure how keen people were on having their names on the internet! I did include first names on some people, especially in captions for pictures but most of those people I assumed would be totally ok with first name basis only. Never last names. I am not sure what kind of sketchy people might just happen along my blog and then they would thief the identities of those people that I love.
And it would be my fault. EEEK.
So, first names and first initials will have to do. So, Hi... S & B. Since I know you are reading I'll just send you a personal hello. Hey, its more than MY dad is doing at the moment (I will send him the link and see what happens!)
I cleaned out one of the crazy cabinets in the kitchen to make room for a treat from my Mema (grandmother on Mom's side)...her old school Kitchen Aid mixer.
In the process, I found a wonderful dutch oven to cook things in...woohoo!
and I needed to make room for a cool set of mugs that Chad's old room mate Craig gave us.

A hearty thank you to everyone who helped put it together...in NO particular order of importance.

To do Today (before the party, no less):

I left my sweetie in the bed (sadly, with the dog) to sneak down the hall and write a little.
I'm at my parents house so forgive the quick blog and lack of details.
Finally home in Columbus again with a thousand things to do.
I cleaned bathrooms at the house.
Frannie and my mom cleaned the porch, wonderfully might I add.
Chad cut down trees.
Jessica washed windows.
I picked up a couple of gifts for people I love that will be at the party.
I cleaned up in the living room.
Mom and I recovered the chairs from the porch so that they would be presentable and cute.
She will make a couple of table runners to match tomorrow. Fun fall-ish colors. She's fabulous.
More errands to run tomorrow.
Chad's parents (S & B) should be getting into town tonight and I am sure they will be over to help tomorrow.
I am going to pick up all the flowers in the morning. I can't wait to show you the "after" pictures.
