doing: a whole lotta nothing

July 14, 2011


Just hanging out.
Let’s see. What else have I been doing?

  • We may have finally (25+ samples on the wall later…) chosen our bedroom color. Last night, we decided on a nice smoky gray-blue (Pratt and Lambert Meditation) for the wall behind the bed, and something lighter on the rest of the walls. Now we just have to decide between a very light blue or a cream/stone paint for the other walls. But I think that won’t take long. Then we can prime over the incredible rainbow that is on the walls currently, and get something nice up! Very excited about this.
  • Have started reading Game of Thrones. I didn’t know this was a book. I’m totally hooked. Sorry, giant TBR pile… you’ll have to wait until I get through 700+ pages of medieval fantasy.
  • Still love the couch. Oh, couch. You are soooooo comfy.
  • Finn and Thomas are still figuring out how to get along. We have them separated by a baby gate all the time (except for the times when one of them slips through if we open the gate). Finn still hisses and growls at Thomas, and Thomas still gives Finn giant big sad eyes (and then stalks him when his back is turned). They are pretty funny. We’re waiting for the growling to subside before letting them go nose-to-nose without the babygate, but Finn is pretty scared of Thomas so it might take awhile. That’s okay. He’s such a sweet boy. Both of the boys are sweet and adorable… hooray for kitty-love!
  • My dad and his girlfriend arrive this afternoon for a short visit. My dad is going to compete in a Master’s track meet this Saturday — attempting a new world record for his age group! Go, Dad! Unfortunately, this means we have to clean the house today. Aw, do we hafta?
  • For the rest of my vacation, I’m planning on a) enjoying our guests and b) doing nothing. Most of my projects are done, and I have a really good book, and five more days to enjoy it. So from here on out: no more projects. It’s a vacation within a vacation!
This has been an excellent period of time off. It felt like a real summer vacation (except for the fact that it’s back down to 70 degrees during the day… what is up, weather??) I’ll be sad to go back to work next Tuesday, but I think I really, really needed this time off. I do have to start going to bed earlier, though, or I will DIE next week.

    Hooray for paint! I started reading Game of Thrones last weekend. I’m only in about 5 chapters or so but it’s good, isn’t it? James has read them all and is about to dive into the newly published one. Good luck to your dad! And keep enjoying your vacation!

      It is good! I’m really enjoying it. It’s a fun read. It’s surprisingly readable and I’m really getting into the plot, although still having trouble keeping some secondary characters straight…

      I think I have to read the books before watching the series, but I really want to see the series! I hear it is really good.

    im so glad your vacation was so stellar. i think sometimes the ones spent at home are more relaxing than the ones when you go away. enjoy your last few days before returning to work.

      I agree — it would have been difficult to be much better than this one. I loved it.
