the pits

Friday, February 1, 2013



Not enough sleep. Not enough ice cream. 
My house still looks like we just moved in. There's nothing on the walls.
We still haven't painted the upstairs, or even started. 
My chair is not even half way done getting reupholstered. 
There are saggy bags under my eyes cause I've been at work too much this week.
Grahm got a $440 speeding ticket, $200 extra for the tags. (I try to tell him he isn't filming Too Fast and Too Furious, but apparently you can't argue with the "I'm going the speed of traffic" bit he always pulls.)

This week has just been the pits. 
Excuse me while I drown myself in cookie dough and French fries.

French fries solve everything.

Hang in there ma'am! We've lived in our house for close to 2 years, and it looks like we haven't done crap with the place, lol! And ughhhh to the $440 ticket, that is PRICEY!!

I'll have some cookie dough for you too! :)

And to think I was annoyed with the $150 ticket my husband bought himself this week. Thanks for putting it into perspective. I think I need to sage my entire aura after this funk-filled week. I just finished posting a picture of the french fries I drowned my sorrows in earlier this week. Here's to Fridays.

We moved in to a new house in September, and I have ONE picture (albeit a large one) hung. This might sound absurd, but I wanted to make sure everything was where I wanted it (furniture, etc.) before putting a bunch of holes in our freshly painted walls. You'll get there! And maybe so will I! :)

I wish I lived close enough to bring over fro yo, extra cookie dough, and extra large fries!! What a week, girlfriend, sheeesh! I hope you have a relaxing and wonderful weekend :) Tell Grahm that unless he magically becomes Paul Walker he needs to slow that butt down ;)

No stress girl, nothing a little vino can't fix! Happy Friday!

Melissa Knott said...

Root beer floats cure all. Or wine. :) Chin up, love!

Jenna said...

Ugh. I know the feeling. Messy house, speeding tickets, baggy eyes, the works. But, this too shall pass. I'm pretty sure next week will be about a million times better. Until then... cookie dough and french fries are a great idea.

I recommend eating some Oreos. Or ice cream. Or pizza. Or all three!!! :-)

Hang in there; things have gotta' look up from here, right?! (That's what I try to tell myself all the time, although I still stuff my face with all the goodies listed above) haha :-)

Angi said...

Ugh, thankfully my husband hasn't gotten a ticket yet, but he always says that too..."I'm just going with the speed of traffic." Seems pretty close to the "If your friends jumped over a bridge" analogy to me.

Sorry you've had such a tough week!!! I recommend Oreos also, with peanut butter. On top of ice cream.

Lauren said...

Bless you! But your stress eating choices sound wonderful!

rachel said...

"keeping up with traffic"
gets me every time.

lori said...

Make me cheese fries and enjoy the weekend, girl. It's been a rough one for me, too.

Jodi said...

Sounds like a terrible week. I hope your weekend is MUCH better!

Kendahl Lanai said...

Haha, love this! I hate speeding tickets, seriously! My bf always uses the excuse "I didnt see him"...like that matters!!

Carly said...

Hey! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I wanted to come check out yours too. Sorry to hear things are up in the air right now...I hope things start to get better. They will :)

Emily said...

i guess i should stop using that speed of traffic excuse....girl, eat UP that cookie dough!

CoastWithMe said...

Sorry to hear that you've had a rough week girl! I think laughing, writing, and eating cookie dough/french fries/ice cream sounds like the right thing to do:)! We're here if you need us!

Jesslyn Amber said...

I'm so sorry you've had such a hard week! We have all been there, but these hard times shall pass. Thinking of you! P.S. I recommend chocolate frosting. It chases all my blues away. ;)

Amie said...

Oh man that royally stinks- i'm sorry! Hopefully everything is looking up now that its over! Here is something positive- football is over!

JENA - found this via another blog and immediately thought of you and your painting stress/dilemma. It seems like a super cool way to test our colors in a real space. Maybe worth checking out for your upstairs...you just upload a pic and then pic colors and digitally "paint" the room to see how they look. Okay - just an idea. Also - please don't get salmonella poisoning. :)
