“…Could I ever break away and find peace inside…” July 14, 2010

If today in the office were a flavor of ice cream it would be vanilla.
And not French vanilla or vanilla bean or Andy’s—just straight plain Hiland vanilla.
Nobody is in the office.
All out today.
I called all my interviews, nobody has called back.
Election coverage is wrapped up.
So I sit here and slowly melt into a puddle of vanilla.

I had Sonic for lunch.
Bacon cheeseburger with a side of onion rings.
A treat I didn’t even know I wanted.
Pre-packed my lunch last night.
Left it at home.
Turned around, went the 8 block back and got it.
Arrived at work and realized I left half of it in the freezer.
Yep, it’s that kind of day.

Mom has been talking about going wedding dress shopping as of late.
I am both looking forward to it and then again no so much.
Girls dream about finding the perfect wedding dress.
We watch Lifetime specials about it.
Finding a dress in my size at my price range that has that something special sucks all the fun out of it.
Still fun, but 95 percent now rather than 100.

270 days and counting.

I have a boat load of stress lately.
I’m not sure how to fix it.

Little Kyle Wilson gave me a jingle today.
He heard a new John song on Pandora.
Love Pandora.
But it was an old song, about 3 years I believe.
A+ for effort little Kyle.

We no longer have internet at home.
The neighbors moved and took there wi-fi with them.

The heat index is 108 degrees today.

My left sock keeps sliding down in my shoes.
Very uncomfortable.

I might take part in a bank focus group.
Answer questions for an hour, get $25.
I think I can handle that.

I’m ready for fall sweaters.

My Dr. Pepper from Sonic is empty.

Still nobody has changed the shoe calendar.
It resides on March.

I think serious retail therapy would help today.
My bank account does not agree.

Life is both wonderful and not right now.
And I don’t know that there is anything I can do about it.

I had art time last night.
I dabbled in acrylic rather than my usual watercolors.
Adam seemed to like the results.

I’m ready for the election to be over and all the political signs to be down.

It’s almost 4 p.m.

I think steak for dinner tonight.
We got a new rub I want to tryout.

Life wouldn’t be complete without a pug picture.

I heart you too puggy.

    ‘Steak’ and ‘Rub’. Two words that just go together so well.
