loving the open windows

well, after taking stacey’s suggestion (which i should have been smart enough to think of on my own!), i opened up the windows in my office and bedroom to alleviate some of the intense heat in the house. the boys love open windows because they can hear everything outside. julius had no problem jumping up on the windowsill. aj tried to join him, but julius quickly put a stop to that!

btw…i now have air. yay!

only at walmart

joe and i trekked to the cartersville walmart last night to inquire about ear piercing. yep, at 25, i am finally thinking about getting it done. i asked the girl working in jewelry how long you have to keep the initial studs in and how to prevent infection. she told me about her ear piercing, then said, “i had this done three days ago and look how infected it is,” as she, who was not the most fit person i’ve ever seen, pulled up her shirt and showed us her pierced belly button, which was red and purple. “i’m not supposed to take the ring out, but i’ve already changed it three times.” that could be why it’s infected, dear…needless to say, we were pretty disgusted.

but wait. my story gets better. joe bought a second alarm clock to make sure he got up on time today for his first day at his new job. she rang his purchase up, took his money, got his change and shut her drawer — slamming the corner of her jacket in the drawer as she closed it. she freaked out and started calling everyone and their mother trying to find someone to open her drawer. joe’s response? “why doesn’t she just take her jacket off?”
only at walmart.

my sweltering home

it’s 72 degrees outside. it’s about 77 degrees inside my house. no joke. the a/c is out again. i say again because just a month ago the compressor died, so i was living in extreme heat for a few weeks until that got fixed. now, it’s take 2. and i only have one fan so i’ve been living in my bedroom. sigh. at least i’m going to joe’s for the weekend where it’ll be nice and cool. until i make him turn on the heat because i’m freezing, that is. 🙂

cool site

this site is so cool. you can search tv shows and it lists when people have voted that the show “jumped the shark” or basically started going downhill. very cool. check it out.

i’m happy :)

i liked clinton, so this works for me!
