5:30, I'm awake!

I don't know why I woke up so early with no alarm this morning.

Oh wait, yes I do - it was my crazy cat. She likes to get on my bedside table and knock everything off of it when she thinks it's time for me to wake up. How sweet of her...

Anyway, I need to get up and get moving anyway... lots to do.

Mark and I had a talk last night about how we need to be more like grown-ups. You know, more responsible and everything. Which includes a clean house.

Now, I don't want you to think that I never clean, because I do. But both Mark and I are pretty cluttered, messy people, and the mess sort of stays. So he said that we both need a daily chore list. Which I immediately bristled at, because I. HATE. CHORE. LISTS. I don't know why I detest them so - maybe because of some issues I had with some roommates in the past, maybe because I'm stubborn and don't like to be told what to do every day (even by a list), I don't know. But I loathe the very thought of them. (Which is so silly, I know...) So Mark decided that I should make said list, using some strange adoption analogy that I never did understand. So today, among other things, I have to make us a chore list... great.

And now, more fun things to talk about:

Dresser: We're nearly finished! We ended up painting it, which was TOTALLY the right decision, and now it's a solid, not shabby, lovely smooth brown color, kind of the color of chocolate cake batter or melted milk chocolate. With my sweet hardware, it's going to look amazing - just one more coat of paint today, and we're done!

Puppy: I got an email from the breeders last night saying that there were only 2 puppies left, and there had been interest in those two. We're going to visit them tonight before we make a decision - Mark really wants to meet the parents of this litter and play with them before we decide for sure. I think that's a good idea - we want to be informed puppy shoppers. But I am seriously hoping that no one puts deposits down on BOTH of them today before we go - I would be so sad :(

And that's pretty much it around here lately. I promise that there will be some pictures of stuff soon - I know this old blog has gotten sort of boring as of late. Sorry for that!


  1. Oh man, I can't wait to see puppy pictures!!!

    And I'm glad your dresser was successfully painted.

  2. Hope you get a puppy!! The only way I've learned to enjoy chores, is when I turn the stereo up with my favorite songs blaring! ;-)

  3. Oh, I hope you get a puppy! Good luck!!
    Will you post pictures of your newly painted dresser?

  4. My husband and I have had the same talk recently! We have such a tough time making ourselves clean our apartment, it's BAD! I hope you get your puppy!

  5. I can't wait to see the PUPPY!!! So exciting!

    I'm excited to see the dresser too. :)
