so this chick had a rough go at it yesterday!

one of those days where everything hits you at once…
you’ve had it…
you need a “woe is me” melt down…
you need someone to just hear you!
when all the LITTLE things… add up to be one bunch of TOO MUCH!

the moving to a new state thing sure has it’s challenges!
in SO many ways!
all of you that have been down this road before…
know exactly to what i am referring!
it’s not just like moving down the road… within the same city… the same state!
it’s a whole other kit & caboodle!

and the fact that this is the third state for us in the last three years…
does NOT make it any easier!

i can handle it ALL… the one thing though that rips me apart…
i miss my chicks!
my friends!
my family!
having someone to SEE face to face…
having someone to just SHARE in everyday life!
silly things…
little things…

i can’t help it…
it’s HARD!

relationships are SO important!

when you don’t have them… you hurt.

just really doing my very best at taking it a day at a time…
remembering that i won’t always be the new girl in town.

in time…
friendships will form.
we’ll get our footing & finally feel at home.
i’ll find a darn MD that can squeeze a new patient in BEFORE February.
i’ll find someone to do lunch with.
a stylist i will trust to cut my hair.

one day at a time!

so after all the tears yesterday… ridiculous pityville i was in…
THIS morning…
i put on a pair of my favorite Fall flats…
funny how a pair of shoes can make you smile…
they CAN though!

i really don’t want to waste anymore time thinking about what i am missing…
what good does THAT do!

LIFE is under foot… !

i’m not sure who was more excited… me or the kiddos!

“are you kidding me!”
was exactly what i said when i pulled THIS out of the box!
CAN you be in love with a PILLOW?
i flipping LOVE this pillow!
i think i need more!

not positive yet what i’ll do with this way cool bucket bag…
because there are a million uses…
rolled up towels… books by the bed… carry all in the car… hobby room storage…
it was one of those “oh that is SO neat… so many possibilities”!
we had way too much fun… well that or we’re just a bunch of NUTS!

and then this galvanized pedestal… adore ALL things galvanized… ADORE!

should be fun coming up with neat ways to use it!  

my FLOR box came yesterday too!

i have been wanting to give this option a whirl for a LONG time!
considering getting a plush variety for our living room…
but thought i’d order something a lot smaller first…
for our entry… see what we thought!

really like the heavy feel of the squares… very substantial… really sturdy!
this particular type i ordered is for high foot traffic… 
you can even rinse them clean under water…
love that idea!

NOTHING at all to the installation…
basically just deciding how you want then configured… stick & go!

giving the rug a roll… i think it passed the test!

before i go… a secret… i am STILL in my jammies… it’s after eleven!
what in the world am i thinking!
i think my body is trying to hang onto summer… the LAZY part of it at least!
enough of this…
i gotta roll too…
kick it into high gear!
i can imagine you’re just like me…
a TO DO list a million miles long… and only a few days to get it all done!
i can almost hear the school bell ring… :)!
