So it’s been a minutes, or 12 days. What have I been up to? Let’s see.
Warning: Random Brain Spew Ahead
My entry, workout room, living room and kitchen are in some sort of order and no longer full of boxes. My hallway is 75% there.
The Packers won a couple of games (ahem haven’t lost since my birthday. I’m totally taking all the credit.)
I went out in my new town for the very first time, but I went to a place that I had dinner. Does that still count?
I’ve become addicted to The Amazing Race and Bad Judge. Oh, and The Voice. Oh my gawd, I love that show. And, seriously, when did I become a fan of Adam Levine?
I got my haircut. It’s a great cut by my stylist at The Main Salon in Green Bay. BUT. It’s a short a-line bob with bangs. One or the other would be great. I’m not digging the two together. However, it looks & feels healthier now and I know I’ll love it in a couple of months. I really want to color my hair because it’s stuck at a weird brassy, red color but it needs one more cut. I may end up using henna in the meantime just to get rid if this ick color. What I really want do is an ombre that goes from my natural color to caramel/dark blonde. Maybe December.
Freya had her first overnight with me. I know I overuse the term “best day ever” but my evening with her was hands down the best day ever. I missed her so much. She did so amazingly well this time. No anxiety at all. She ended up being so comfortable that she roamed around and checked out the apartment on her own after a couple of hours of being a ginormous tail where ever I walked. After what seemed like an eternity (but was only 3, maybe 5 months), it was the best feeling in the world to wake up with my giant doggie sleeping next to me. I’m taking her again over Halloween weekend. I can’t wait. 9 days!
I attended Throwback Weekend in Green Bay, just Saturday night this time instead of the whole weekend. It was great to see friends I chat with almost daily and I got to meet one of my favorites. Words can’t describe how amazing these people are. The majority know how broken-hearted I’ve been about not seeing Freya much since I moved. Nearly every single person I talked to said how happy they were that I finally got to have some quality time with my girl.
Blech. I lost my stupid debit card and it takes TWO WEEKS to get a replacement. I hate carrying cash.
I’m working on a few craft projects. I’m attempting to get the hang of arm knitting again. I’m also freshening up a wooden pumpkin sign that was in storage so I can put him outside (he needed new paint). I’m making insulated roman shades for my windows. AND…. I’m looking at upcycling a bunch of my old sweaters. (Whoa.)
Oh oh! Last night I won tickets from my favorite radio station to a haunted house. I am SO. FREAKED. OUT. I don’t know how I’m going to do this. I’m scared to watch anything with suspense. Halloween for me is full of happy pumpkins and scarecrows, not ghosts, zombies, spiders and other freaky business.
Did I mention the Packers haven’t lost since my birthday?
Did also I mention I get to see Freya again in 9 days?
Theme Song? Err… Theme Song.
And, I’ll close with what I somewhat jokingly call my theme song for Summer 2014, Secrets by Mary Lambert.
