I’ve been adrift in a sea of self-pity lately so it’s been difficult to come up with anything constructive to blog about. Today is no different but I thought I’d try to dredge up some positive thoughts to share. It’s been a month since our last update and no news. I’m finding it extremely difficult to be positive anywhere, especially at work, and now people are making comments that express how much I need to keep my sarcastic mouth shut before I stick my entire foot in it. There’s some flux going on in the workplace as well, which is frustrating everyone. Meanwhile S’s workplace is in a serious state of flux and it’s not helping his mood either.
Ok, I was going to be positive. We decided on a background color for the nursery. Not the actual color, mind you, but now at least we’ve narrowed it down to a rough color scheme. Progress! We are also finishing up the rest of the work from the last remodeling project. Now the kid won’t be able to take a header off our basement stairs into the laundry room. Painting 1x1 balusters was an entertaining afternoon. S got the ceilings in the kitchen and nursery. I’m not sure which one is more frustrating, but at least it’s done. We still have trim and doors to contend with as well as S’s masterpiece in the nursery.
The snow has been good for the most part, and yesterday, despite the howling winds, we managed to find some great stashes. It almost made the 3.5 hour drive home (normally 1.5 hrs at the most) worth it. Now, if I could just figure out what my problem is with my technique the ski season would be fantastic. So far, I’m pretty frustrated with my performance overall. Lately I’ve been freaking and mentally checking out which makes getting down a difficult run maddeningly slow. I’m not sure how to fix it. Oh right, I’m supposed to be positive…
I had coffee with Sooz this weekend. I love having the opportunity to meet the authors of blogs I follow. We had a nice long chat and I can’t wait to follow her progress.
I like my new car! On Chris.tmas Eve we bought a shiny new Pr.ius. With the CO tax break, 0% financing, and my mean negotiating skillz it made sense to buy it even if I could have found a used car cheaper. Besides, I’ve wanted one ever since they came out, but they were pretty expensive at first. It’s taken some getting used to with the super sloped windshield, and no sensation of shifting, but I’m getting comfortable.
That’s about all I can blather on about today. Maybe sometime soon I’ll have something profound to talk about. Or at least more focused.
