quick ramble: last night i decided we should go to bed at 9pm, i assumed it would mean we’d (i’d) get lots of awesome sleep, and not be grouchy this morning. but nope! pain issues awoke me around midnight and had me up until 2:45. a thing about being married that no one ever tells you is, your bed is no longer your own! you aren’t free to roll around, thrash about, kick off the...
aprillynne: sometimes i feel guilty when i’m in a store like jo ann fabrics or micheals because i realize how trivial everything there is. how only people who have extra money can buy that kind of stuff and then they must have extra time in which to craft whatever it is they are crafting. don’t get me wrong, i love art, crafts & the whole thing. sometimes it just hits me that art is a...

when i was a kid i used to watch adults (often my parents) eat certain foods and i literally thought i was going to pass out in disgust. i don’t know why my tastes changed, but they started to right around the same time i graduated from college. some kind of sub-conscious “welcome to adulthood” perhaps? maple cream sticks mayonnaise caprese salad anchovies (seriously) blue...

i understand jesus and the cross, but i don’t understand why God put us on the...– kira. i overheard her talking with dad this morning. (via chelseakim) lol. was his answer, “people spend their entire lives trying to figure that out.”?
i try not to hoard things. i really do. but i always just have this nagging internal voice, “what if you need it in the future?” i’m sure this is how large-scale hoarding starts. one day, you’re hanging onto a few wine bottles “just in case,” the next you’re living in a tent in the backyard because the stacks of paper and empty bean cans have taken over...
it’s hard to find someone to be with you if you’re in a bad mood all of the...– colby. so true.

i didn’t wear pants to work. i did the leggings/ big t-shirt/ tall boots combo, and now i’m kind of regretting that decision. “casual friday?” yes. but not “no pants friday.” i don’t know. i feel uncomfortable. i don’t want to leave my office. always wear jeans, you guys. just do it.
