Misc.

I bought some pillows that I thought would be perfect with the green couches. Striped pillows of deep red, darker green, gold. Got them home and nope. They don't work. In my head, they still work. I want to go get them out of the van and try them again because they really should work. But they really don't.

This week is all of the sudden crazy. I'm trying a water aerobics class at the Y tonight that I signed up for. We're taking the kids to a local pool on Wednesday to meet some friends. We made those plans three weeks ago when July 16th seemed so far off. Hubs is playing in a three-day golf tournament that will eat up the end of the week for him (and leave me flying solo a bit). Then this weekend is B's first friend party for her 5th b-day which is a week from today.

So all in all, I need to be on my A game. And I am so NOT on my A game. I just want to sit down, watch reruns, and eat popsicles. Where in the heck am I supposed to squeeze that into this week?!!?

Just add more to the list.... come to Lincoln for a day!!! LOL!!!

I have so much to get caught up on after last week, and I just don't even care enough to do it. Bon Bons and black and white movies sound perfect. But alas, the dryer is buzzing at me yet again. Blech

If you figure it out, could you let me know? :-)

The Great Pillow Hunt of '08. One day B and M will speak of these days with scorn. "Every day. Every SINGLE day for weeks. Ethan Allan. TJ Maxx. JC Penney. Target. She was relentless. It was pillow talk 24 hours a day. FOR WEEKS."
Good luck, hunteress.

You have clearance to try out the pillows from the midwest- x - girls! MBG has given me clearance to offer you up the stack of pillows! I'd take a pic to send (if I could find the camera) but I'm thinking you might like them . . .can you squeeze me in this week? Just kidding!

If you can find some fabric you like that matches... I'll whip some pillows up for you... for a fee!

They work in my head too. Post a picture - maybe you're just not used to them yet? (This is my new theory - anything I don't like about my house I will classify as "Oh it's just that I'm not used to it yet.")
