Lazy Blogger

I've been an extremely lazy blogger the last few weeks but I'm busy dernit!

Here's what I've been up to:

1.  Work!  Traveling multiple places in a week and getting it done.

2.  Sold my car and trying to buy a new one.  Let's stop right here for a shout out to the best father in law in the world.  He has negotiated and negotiated for us and got us a steal!  But then they called us back and told us it was priced wrong on their website.  NIGHTMARE.  So today is my fifth day without a car.  This story isn't over.  He is on a rampage with these cats!

3.  Back to the in-laws - we went to dinner with them the other night.  We actually go to dinner with them about once a week and it's really nice that we can do that.  They truly treat me like I'm their daughter.  Nice to have parentals-in-law in town since my parentals are in Maryland.  

4.  House stuff...
Electrician - we had an electrician over yesterday hiding wires behind the TV in our room.  He also installed landscape lighting on the front of our house.  I'll have to figure out a way to take a picture of that.  
Painting - we have the painting scheduled for the master bedroom next week.  
Irrigation -  we are close to having irrigation installed in our yard as well.  I'm working on coordinating that now.
Landscaping - we had the bottom two beds at our driveway ripped out last week (I told you all about this) so now we're working on what to plant back in there.  

Nothing like a big family shin-dig at your house in early November to motivate us to get things rolling at la casa! 

5.  Still attempting to exercise a few times a week.  Tough to fit it in sometimes but must do it for my mental sanity.

Happy Weekend!

You've been super busy! I'm very impressed with this little recap :)

I've been doing a lot of chipping away at a long-term to do list (including some Christmas shopping - I KNOW) and it feels good to get stuff done and out of the way long before I need to. If I've got the time now, no need to stress later on :)

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Sounds like lots going on at the house! I bet the landscape lighting will look awesome! I, too, am very lucky to have awesome in-laws. Feel so bad for the people who aren't lucky enough to get along with theirs like we do.

What kind of car are you getting?

I've been a lazy blogger too. My in-laws are the same way - it was such a blessing when we lived in New Jersey and I was away from my family but fairly close to Corey's. What kind of car are you getting?n
