Oobla di, oobla da.... life goes on

April 3rd, 2011 at 09:58 am

One of those days I don't know what to do with myself.

I went outside thinking I might start pulling up more rampant forsythia today, but it's still somewhat breezy/cool. I pulled up one plant and then retreated inside.

Made myself a grilled cheese sandwich. Why do I always feel I have nothing to eat in the house?? Even after spending $260 for food this month???

Worked 3 hours this a.m. on the news job. Japan, Libya, Syria and healthcare costs in retirement.

Wandered around taking photos...

One of my favorite mugs, purchased three years ago in Bar Harbor, Maine.

There's tons of stuff I could be doing, but I don't feel like: wallpapering the bathroom, sanding and repairing baseboard from water damage or vacuuming.

I did buy a pretty nice upholstered chaise.

This isn't the best photo of it, but for now it's sitting in the closed off family room until it warms up enough to put in the sun room.

It's a micro-velvet in neutral beige color that should look really good in my new sun room. I was hoping with that lighter color, it won't fade from the sun, which can get pretty intense in that room. It's a fairly compact size but very, very comfortable; I recognized it immediately when I saw it in a catalog as being the same chaise I enjoyed sinking into at my last perm job; they bought these to go in little conference rooms you could go into to make a phone call, just big enough for one person.

I liked these so much (couldn't find them anywhere) that I asked the HR people at the company about them after I was laid off. They never responded; they must've thought i was a little nuts to be asking about that after a layoff, but i really did like these chaises.

Tomorrow's my physical; I can't wait to get more meds for this STUPID UTI, hopefully with a minimum of fuss. It's been about 2.5 weeks now and really want to be rid of it.

I have nothing to do! I am so unmotivated! Does that ever happen to you??

    Yes!! I always have things to do, but don't always get them done. Today, however, I was motivated to use paint to touch up my kitchen cabinets. I've been wanting to do this for a year!!

    I love Bar Harbor! I loved living in Vermont for grad school and driving to the Maine or NH coast lines. Loved it!

    Bar Harbor is on my bucket list. Can you give me any tips for where to stay and eat? BTW, love your kitty.

    Oh, gosh, I don't remember the name of the place we stayed, I'm sorry. But there are so many nice places there, I'd probably just try to find something in or within walking distance of downtown but not on a main street.

    Be sure to spend some time hiking at Acadia Nat'l Park! Great ocean views!
