Oh dear lord, it’s already almost Monday morning again. Sure to be another groggy morning. But for now, it’s merely a Sunday night, of a good weekend.
Our closest “couple” friends (you know, the couple we both really enjoy and like to hang out with the most, plus the ones my dear husband is the most comfortable with because we’ve known them so long… they were in our wedding of course) came over this morning after church with their two little girls and we had lunch and showed them the new house. Our first official guests. It was great to see them and I was pretty pleased and proud to show off our new house. They loved it, said they were jealous. I know the feeling, right after we bought our house, we went to see my brother’s new house and it was like… “damn, my new house doesn’t seem nearly as nice anymore!”.
We bought some artwork for the house and some plants today. Went through old photos with the youngest and picked out some for photo collages. We have WAY too many photos up in our house and none of them are even recent! But, it makes me smile to see the pictures, and I love looking at them with people for the first time. So, there they are, and there they will stay for awhile, years probably.
Took an art print in for custom framing today. We went to Michael’s Crafts, and with the HALF-OFF SALE on custom framing orders, we STILL paid almost $500. ZOMGWTFBBQ!!!11!eleven! And they are the “lower priced” framing store. WHAT THE HELL!?!?!! It’s a fricking racket is what it is!!! They’ve got the market cornered because no one else has a flipping clue how to frame an odd sized art piece not to mention, getting the materials. Might be worse than the insurance market!! Wait, no…. never mind, there is no larger racket than the insurance market. Stupid health insurance…. My out of pocket deductible (not including co-pays and medication of course) is $500 for the year. I got my end of December statement and I had…. $450 paid out of pocket, therefore they covered JACK! Grrrrrrrrr!
I think a little Bohemian Rhapsody, gentlemen.
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for meeeeeee!
And, Melissa, I enjoy you too. I do. And, I’d like a white chocolate mocha please, in case you were asking. 😀

I love looking at old photographs that friends and family show from time to time. Gives a little insight into the past.
