I came to the conclusion today that I might be depressed.  Any free time I have I spend on the couch, asleep or trying to fall asleep.  Today I went to get stakes and fence from my mom's for the garden...that's more than I did yesterday, so maybe I'm already getting better.

I made Guacamole Bruschetta again and I'm going to watch Fear because TheDaintySquid mentioned it and I'm a sucker for Mark Wahlberg, young or not.  I'm sure it'll lift my mood to be scared, hopefully it's not really cheesy.

I hope to finish this book I've been trudging through by tomorrow...It's just not going quickly, but I have to hold myself accountable and not just give up.  Even though I kind of hate it.

I will also force myself to post again tomorrow.  Some pictures of the adorable Remington at least.

Monday, Monday

Yesterday was beauuuutiful before the rain!  I took some pictures around the yard to share...

The apple blossoms smell awesome :)

The garden is in!  Finally.  We planted dill, corn, radishes, green beans, peas, egg plant, pumpkin, watermelon, cantaloupe, red potatoes, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, lettuce, beets, kohlrabi, carrots, cucumbers and zucchini.  We ran out of room, so that's what the tiny circles are for two pictures down.  :-)

Remy The Explorer  (she's way better than Dora)

Come to me, little Orioles!

The weather was not-so-beautiful a few hours after I took these.  My brother and I took Remy for a walk and it started to get pretty dark when we got back to Mom's.  We headed straight to our (my and Adam's) house to grill burgers before it was too wet.  After eating, I couldn't stop thinking about re-arranging the living room, so we did.

I'm not completely satisfied and I'll probably move a few small things around until they look better, but for the most part, I'm happy.  Also, tacky as it may be, I want a "G" to put right about the TV.  Maybe a fancy one.  Maybe just plain black.  I shouldn't go to Hobby Lobby because I'm not really under budget, but I just need things...

Anyways, after moving all of the furniture around, I could actually see the windows (and frames), since the couch blocked the shutters before.  Man were they dirty.  They obviously hadn't been tended to since way before we moved in.  I started on those and Cody played with the hose/sprayed the screens.  :-D  I love teamwork!  Haha.

Today I'm supposed to be applying for jobs.  I'd rather do this.  I'm nervous and I feel stupid because of it so I'm not talking to anyone about it.  I'm not afraid to work, I don't mind working, honestly.  It'd be nice to stay home and play online all day of course, but even that would get old.  I hate talking on the phone.  I hate interviews.  I'm sure most people do, but most people aren't this stubborn.  I'd rather stay at the job that I've had for four years that makes me feel shitty on a daily basis than try for something new.  Maybe it's a fear of failure or rejection...I don't know.  All I know is that I'm barely getting stuff paid for right now and if I start somewhere new, I'll have to work up to what I can already do.  I guess I'm nervous about getting behind on bills because it's not like I'm going to get a high-paying job that I'd be able to count on for catching me back up.

I had power food (below:)) for breakfast, so maybe now I will try that job thing and if it fails, oh well.

I got a lot of new things today :) I'm slowly becoming a bird lady minus the shopping cart and avoidance of showers.

My parents left for Oregon today.  My great uncle died this winter and his memorial is this week.  I'm sad I have to miss the memorial and the family time and the mountains. We took a family vacation there to visit in 2004 and I haven't been back since.  Here are some photos from that trip.  Don't mind my amateur photography skills, please. 

Aunt Darlene and Uncle Max smiling away...:)

My favorite part of the trip aside from the mountains

I can't waste coupons...I had to order this rubber address stamp because it was free.  Only $3.79 for shipping.  You can get them made for books, too.  Pretty fab!

Tina brought the boys over today.  Rhyan gave me these.  I'm in love with the wrappers.

Mustard seed!

Left Goodwill, Right Target.  THANK YOU.

Yesssss!  Hot applesauce, here I come!

Goodwill was really kind to me today.

I'm good on nail polish for awhile...

I hung this today :)  I prepared the homemade nectar, too!  The recipe I was given is below.  The one I used is the lazy version, where I microwaved the water and just added red food coloring instead of the Jell-o.  :-)  

I'm a hoarder.  I'll have the birds to myself.

See the wing and tail on the left?!  I was really close.  :)

Hah :)

She's so great :)

The boys were really excited to find these!

Kind of looks like an eye and pig snout inside the eye socket...

The rest of the deer is still out there.  All in place and everything.  The boys had sooo many questions.

Dew, Buttons and Sequins

Maybe I'm the only person who appreciates dew.

Web :-)
I finally went and got my buttons!  I sorted them, too...

I forgot I had all of these and this sweet little storage unit.  :-)

And some leftovers from yesterday since I didn't have a chance to post:

She's weird.

Paparazzi shots mean cooperation :)
