freshen up

I couldn't sleep last night and as I was staring into the ceiling fan I decided that I wanted to redesign the ol' blog. It's been fresh and summery for a few months and I'm not feeling so summery right now. I'm feeling brown and cozy and cider-ish. And I do think this new design is beautiful.

If we're being honest, I'm feeling a little cooped up. I wake up, work, wait for Andrew to get home, eat dinner, go to bed and do it all again. Nowhere in there does it say "go outside" or "go to the store" or "go get in the car" and so Friday rolls around and I practically attack Andrew the minute he gets in the door, begging him to take me dinner. Or to Target. Or somewhere that is not inside this house. Love it here, so glad we live here, NOT happy about staying inside 120 hours a week. I'm trying to be a little more intentional about getting out, even if it's just to sit on the front porch. Or walk around the neighborhood. But now that it's getting dark earlier, it's not as easy. Wah, wah, wah. I know. Let me get my violin.

I'm just sayin'.

So I'm brainstorming ways to spice things up and get some face-to-face time in my life. I'm afraid I don't know how to be around people anymore. I'm becoming more socially awkward by the minute, I just know it. So far, I've come up with these ideas:
  • Get a "seasonal" job in retail
  • Sign on for some part-time evening babysitting jobs
  • Take some classes at the community college
  • Complete all of my Christmas shopping
Okay. What else? Someone please move to Charleston and be my friend. I need a coffee date or something.

Stupid Navy.

Just kidding :) Smooches, Uncle Sam.

  1. you can come visit me and help out in my classroom, if you want. every day, or every other day, whichever works for you.

  2. I wish I were there to keep you company. We would have fun!!! Sorry you are lonely. I surely can identify!

  3. How about a quick visit from your cousin? I love Hobby Lobby, cooking, eating out and about everything else you've mentioned on your blog.. Except sewing.. Zero patience. I have 13 days of vaca to use by year end. (not saying I'd stay that long.. )
