Truths XX

I fall in love through my rear view mirror on the daily.
I'm bound and determined to live like I'm in a movie.

Things that inspire me to be productive:

-Hearing a song that unexpectedly fits my mood/day perfectly
-Being told a comforting story
-Being told "No"
-Being told "You can't do it"
-Having a really good day dream
-Being able to dream in general.

This past week has been so relaxing, but in usual Ehrler fashion, I'm getting antsy. Last night, I started laying out a timeline with defining memories about my Mom's character. It felt good, and definitely solidified how special I think my Mom is.

Best Day Ever 2009

Best Day Ever 09 really lived up to it's name!
Nailed final presentation, love my tattoo, went driving, bought The Office season 4, dressed up and went to dinner to celebrate friendship, went to a show, and stayed up late.

Such a great day, I am all smiles.
Now, lets start planning for Best Day Ever 2010! :)

Real life and fear have pushed me disturbingly out of the loop.

This day will consist of:

Life of a Chair

This is what boredom and impulse purchases look like.

Creatures of Habit

Today was a good day!
Class went by quick, came home, and started scrubbing my apartment clean! I have become a hermit, so I figured I might as well clean my shell, haha. After about 2 hours, and mopping myself into a corner, I relaxed read a bit and then went out!

I had an urge to spend money (nothing new), but since my new fascination with saving dollars and dreaming of trips, I have been trying to be good. TRYING. So, off to the thrift store. For me, the thrift store mainly serves the purpose of looking at useless crap to reinforce the fact that I don't actually need anything. It works along these lines about 65% of the time. So, when I actually find something, it comes as a shock. Today I found this:

Granted, furniture is the last thing I need, but look at it! It fits so well! (It also works very nicely as a place to write my thrilling blog entries). After dropping it off, I went over to my favorite bride-to-be's home. Carley has a knack for creating cute, creative, and unique ideas and implementing them exactly the way they should! Her wedding is going to have so much personality and character, which is exactly like them. Perfect! So, the ladies and I crafted the night away creating everything from favors, to flowers, and messes. I'm looking forward to the next craft night.

Fun, fun, fun.

P.S. Thanks to my muscles, AKA Bernadette, for wrestling with the chair!

Feng Shui

With the addition of one digital converter box to my family of technology, the need to move my television closer to a window spurred a living room wide shift. I feel accomplished and more at home. I needed to mix things up.

The shift may have adjusted the luck drifting through my house, because my district manager got in touch with me. We will be discussing my career opportunities tomorrow. Yay!

Happy day.
