Stop the air-filling

I went to bed kind of early last night, so I missed making a post. Let’s just have some though-vomit regarding my speech.

Lately I find myself repeating phrases. Examples: “It’s pretty hot today. Pretty hot.” “It’s a beautiful day! Beautiful!”

I need to stop doing that. I am aware of it, so that is half the battle, but I am consciously trying to stop filling the air with more words. Say it once, Lauren. Say it once.

D’oh!!!

    Hehe… That makes me think of my answer to “How are you doing?” I know it’s grammatically correct to say: “I’m doing well” but I can’t seem to bring myself to say that. I continue to say “I’m doing good” or “I’m good”.

    The newest phrase in our household is “… and such.”

    I was buying groceries and such.
    Oh, I was cleaning up my bedroom toys and such.

So, there’s this Facebook group called Seward Swap Shop? Well, guess what? I had my first successful transaction. I sold a piece of camping equipment (purchased years ago) that I’ve never used, and now I can buy more camping equipment that I will use! Someday….

‘Stained’ ‘glass’

This post really shouldn’t be made now, because I don’t have any ‘different’ kind of photos, but I’m going to just tell the story anyway. When we first moved into the building, it was early September. The gorgeous east-facing windows in the commons were letting A LOT of early morning sun into the kitchen. It […]

… I’m talking about Lloyd here, and I’m not even being blasphemous. I mean it. Before we begin, Happy Mother’s Day! Lloyd and I each love our moms, and also each other’s moms! 🙂 So, Lloyd – who came from his mom – is arguably the best person in the world. He took half a day […]

I walked home this evening and saw that one of my very kind friends made the yard pretty. I know too many nice people to pin down who it was, so fess up, you. It comes at a particularly nice time because now I can tell you that my director announced that she is resigning […]

Aldi (the grocery store) is currently selling their camping stuff today. I was alerted to it by a website I waste a lot of time reading. The website said that they would have a ‘throw-it-in-the-air’ pop-up tent for $20. Twenty dollars!!! I sent Lloyd on a mission to buy a little happiness for me. He […]
