today i feel sort of overwhelmed. again. like i do.
i took the day off, and my mom came to raleigh to help me put the finishing touches on jennifer’s party next weekend. that went fine.
it somehow amazes me each time i realize that thanksgiving is next week. and jennifer’s party is the day after!
in related news, brian and i decided to bite the bullet and spend about 38475837845dollars on getting some projects kickstarted, like a mantle, bricking the front of the house, finally plumbing our hot tub, a woodstove for the front room and a new trashcan thing.
and this would be fine if each one of those things didn’t require a requisite 7 other things to make it happen.
for instance: buy the woodstove – think you’ll just put it in fireplace, have fire? (i did) well, no.
a chimney sweeper had to come this morning to clean/inspect it. he wanted to be paid. we have to get a big old pipe thing on ebay to run up the chimney. they want to be paid for it. i’m sure we’ll have to stuff dollar bills into the actual stove to keep it burning.
anyways, sorry to burden you. now i’m going to go drink a beer, and possibly watch a rerun of the kimora lee simmons show.
love and other indoor sports,
