** I love braiding my hair like this! The braids lay much flatter and look much longer because I'm not really braiding until 5 inches from the bottom. I learned it from one of my favorite beauty gurus, xteeener.
I'm definitely trying to be a better blogger this week. I've been moping around, complaining about the heat, the lack of stuff to do, the excess of stuff to do, and many other things that drive me crazy. I've realized that lying around being lazy really won't help me at all. In fact, it makes me even crankier.
This morning, I decided to dispel all laziness and just do stuff. Anything, really, just to keep me from lounging in my couch and playing Words with Friends and Scramble all day, like I've been for the past two weeks. Pathetic, I know. Here's what I accomplished so far:
1. balanced my checking account-- not really that big of a task, but still.
2. read a comic book trade whilst eating breakfast
3. washed a mountain of dishes
4. cooked roasted pork tenderloin with herbed potatoes (for dinner, so I don't have to be in the kitchen when it's hot in the afternoon)
5. blogged (when this entry is posted)
AND IT'S NOT EVEN 11:00 am!!
I'm on a roll.
I'm on a roll.
Yesterday, I finally decided to drive 50 or so miles out to meet a friend for lunch. I felt like I needed to just get out of town and talk to someone who understands all this blah-ness I've been going through, lately. We had an amazing lunch, and four hours later, I was driving home feeling much better about myself.
I apologize if this post sounds a little deflated. But I feel that I owe it to my readers to share bits about myself, even if those bits aren't picture-perfect. I am fully aware that I haven't been as consistent as I used to be, and I've been posting really sporadically. I truly felt like my brain was "out to lunch." So, here's to finally getting back from my looooong "lunch break" and to being a better, more consistent blogger!
