Weekly Update Thread: October 1st - 7th

Good morning ladies!!! Happy October!  I'm posting this just as I am getting to the computer and I am going to grab my *cough cough* lovely older than goodness camera so I can post pictures of what DH and I got accomplished this weekend. 


We are not done yet with the renos (found a few "surprises" in the walls), but we made a definite dent!!!

Wow, October already.. Time is just flying...


Becca, you're amazing! You're the reno-queen :-)


Work is so slow this week, not to say annoying, nothing to do here! So I got time to be on PW :-)


Other than that, I don't have any special plans for this week. Slowly I try to get on with "normal" life after the shock we had 2 weeks ago and there are days, that go pretty well. And other days, where I'm just filled with sadness and feel down.
Today is a good day and the sun is shining :-) I love the autumn sunlight!


Happy 1st October-week!

Hey ladies! This week will be pretty normal for us. We are actually signing the lease to our new apt tonight. This time when we see it, we definitely have it and can start pictureing where things will go. I'm excited for that. THat's about it...


We got our wedding video back, so I'm hoping to pick up the DVD's of it this week so when we go to my parents house this weekend I can show them.


Oh! And we are getting a new car this weekend too! We are buying DH's grandparents car. 2010 Ford Fusion. That's exciting too!


Hope this week flies by :) Happy Tuesday

Hello ladies! October is here!


This week is pretty busy for me as far as working. I still haven't let go of my second job because I find it rewarding and my clients make me smile even when I don't want to! I worked there last night and I am also doing Thursday. Today I do four hours of job coaching after I get off primary job and I also do that on Fridays. Then I have to do my reserve drill Saturday. Looking forward to tomorrow. It is date night with my hubby!


On another note, I am actually agitated with the love of my life. It is nothing big, just annoying! Since we had Dish Network, the HD channels never functioned properly. We always get a message complete signal loss and despite all the troubleshooting, nothing worked. Just this week some more channels have went out and he said he would call. Well he just called me and asked can I call and that annoys me because his name is on most of the accounts and he knows this! They always ask for information or ask questions that I can't answer and it is annoying that he always ask me to do this!


Okay, done griping. Lol.

Hey ladies! Wow October already! Well today is my 1 month anniversary! YAY! Its also DH's birthday month. He is a halloween baby! I usually do a very big birthday weekend for him every year but this year we have a wedding to attend that he is a part of also so I couldnt plan something big for him. So instead I am doing a 31 days of celebration! So every weekend he comes home I am planning a wonderful date weekend for him. So the first one is this coming weekend. I am taking him for a couples massage and then to dinner at Coco Louco Brazil ...and brazilian restaraunt we have been wanting to try in St Louis. Then we are going to get dressed up and go clubbing!


As for poor me...last week I had oral surgery to remove two teeth that had me in so much pain I thought of jumping off a bridge...real talk! lol I never wish that on anyone! It was worse than childbirth and it never went away for 8 days! So im healing from that still and now I have a cold that feels like its going to be strep throat! I am beginning to nurse it now and hopefully I feel fine by the weekend!


Hope everyones week is starting off good!

Olivia - LOL, thanks honey.  I'm not feeling like much of a reno queen yesterday and today.  With all the crocheting and work I have been doing, I did overuse my right hand a bit and it is now in a brace.  Poor hubby is sanding right now and I will be able to paint later on, but I feel bad that he has to sand. I hope you are having a blast this weekend between school renunion and seeing your friends!


 


Elise - that is awesome.  You should have already signed your lease and yay!!!  Can't wait to see the new place.  That is so cool about getting your DVD.  Looking forward to seeing that as well!  Congrats on getting a new car - those are supposed to be very good on mileage and Lord knows with the horrible gas prices, any savings will help. 


 


Tressy - What exactly is job coaching? I don't think I've ever heard of that (or I might have and it was just called something else). I hope you enjoyed date night and that your drill day wasn't too difficult.  ((((hugs)))) about being agitated with the call that you had to take care of.  I sometimes have to take care of those calls without much info and DH's name is on the account, so I can totally emphathize with you!!!


 


Ronda - Happy one month anniversary (a wee bit late)!! Happy Birthday month to the hubby and awww, that is so cute that you are planning date weekends for him!  Love that!  I hope you both enjoyed your first celebration weekend so far.  Clubbing is awesome and a couples massage sounds very relaxing!  OH MY GOSH about the oral surgery!!!  I so hope you are feeling better and that you are not getting worse!!!


 


As for me, things have been so crazy this week/weekend as we have still been doing renovating of the living room, so most of my time is being spent either in my home office or bedroom and that has thrown off my schedule a bit.  Yesterday I did have a little meltdown as we were supposed to go away this weekend for a mini-moon/going to my Mom's grave, but plans got changed.  I hurt my wrist, so not liking that.  I have made one major decision though and that is I am not going to make any plans for a mini-moon for us until next year.  Life is just too hectic and it seems that the last two or three times I have made plans, they get canceled (and I end up disappointed), so it is just easier for me to wait and enjoy the little things that DH and I can do around here. 


 


Hope you all are enjoying your Sunday!!!
