A Case of the Wants

I like to live simply in that I don’t require much to be happy. I hardly buy anything. Ask my kids! But for three years I’ve wanted these shoes. Last year I almost bought them but then didn’t. This year I bought them but then the online retailer kicked my order out due to the new security features they implemented which made a shipping address, different from your billing address, a big no no. Hello! Porch pirates! No one ships to their homes anymore, do they?

Well, I finally bought them from a different store and I don’t care how much they cost or if they are practical. I really debated on the metallic or plain black but black is so boring. These scream summer to me!

Also on my mind are painted kitchen cabinets. Mine are stained and dark and don’t work for me. I like something like this:

I am also beginning to realize that our loft may actually become mine again soon. It was taken over by my son but he’s been gone and when he returns I am guessing it won’t be for long as he has school to finish. I love a good reading nook.


I like how simple this room is. Not the colors so much. I can’t make up my mind if I like modern or more of a farmhouse style. I change my mind daily. But I can do something like this in my loft.

So lovely, do this in the den

I also want this bag by FEED. When you buy a bag, you buy school meals for hungry kids! This one provides 40 school meals.

I also want to take a trip to London but that will have to wait.

I am off today for Cesar Chavez day but I am spending some of it in the lab and radiology department. Wish me luck.


Just Popping In

Last week was probably one of the busiest weeks I’ve had in a long time. Sunday came and went and I completely forgot to put up my Sunday post. Well, I forgot to write it. Had I written one I would have posted it late because you know, the days blend into one another so Sunday, Tuesday, no difference.

Truth be told, I have not been feeling great. It has to do with that low iron thing but now my body is one big muscle spasm, my coworker pointed out that my nail beds are blue and I look like the guy from Twilight, minus the sparkle. PALE. So pale.

My schedule this week is pretty good. Not empty but definitely doable. I am just tired of dragging myself around trying to be an adult. It’s affected my reading a little, only because when I do have the time to read, I find myself napping instead. It’s very frustrating because there are so many books I am excited about.

If I had my choice I’d be at home in my comfy bed, the pup would be near me, I’d have a book in hand and the rain would be softly falling outside.

Instead, I am at work typing this while on break. It IS supposed to rain but I have no windows to enjoy it. Bleh (blah + meh).
