You've got to be kind to yourself.

Today was my day off, I thought that it would start off well but as we've seen in 500 Days of Summer our expectations hardly ever match up to reality. I had to go to my dentist to get my permanent crown in (yay) and proceed further and lucky me got some less than desired news after the comprehensive exam, I'll just leave it at I have to go see the dentist a few more times before school starts (nay).

I came home to get my brother's up so we could get some house work done so that we didn't waste the day away by cleaning and melting our brain's with the "boob tube"-one of my Dad's expressions. As per usual I did a good amount of the cleaning but that's okay I'm not the one getting in trouble for not pulling my weight so really that's just a semantic. After busting ass and getting my mom's room de-cluttered I took my youngest brother to a frozen yogurt shop down the road from my house and aside from the 2.00 cup of deliciousness that we both got he also some how managed to sneak four tester cups of cupcake yogurt past me and I was sitting right next to him!! After that we went to Best Buy because I was on a mission, a mission for a She & Him CD, yes I still buy CD's. I had to forcefully drag my brother around the store and away from the iPads and other gadgets but eventually I found what I was looking for! I was only intending to get one CD, but after very very little persuasion from an employee I bought Volume One AND Volume Two!!! Sure I've only heard like a total of 4 of their songs but that's all the persuasion I needed today.

Eventually I got my brother out of the store and home just in time for my mom to drag him out again for my other brother's baseball practice. I went to a diner full of senior citizens and a handful of children, I listened to the chatter of strangers, ate a great meal for a decent price and read my book. It was a great stress reliever too! After I was done gorging myself with sinfully delicious food I still felt as though something was missing, well a lot of things feel like they're missing right now to me but they'll be found in time. I headed to the craft store before they closed and found a laptop sticker quote thing for $2.00! I wasn't really looking for it but I'm kind of a stickler for Mark Twain quotes. (Fun Fact-I'm related to him!!!)

So in conclusion, today was a pretty good day once all the hard work was done.

This is possibly one of my most favorite songs on one of  the albums that I bought today!!


  1. this makes my day seem super unproductive. but i did go out to dinner with friends, so it wasn't all boring...

    and ew, cleaning, i shiver just thinking about it.

  2. Dinner with friends!! That sounds better than going solo but it was fun and relaxing. I am not the biggest fan of cleaning but no one else is going to do it so I step up and they get in trouble or whine about it lol.

  3. I Looovve Mark Twain.

    And Mark Twain + pie / frozen yogurt? That is my kind of day...

  4. I love She & Him! Such fun music to listen to. How is One Day? I bought it the beginning of the year but have yet to read it. I probably should before the movie comes out.

  5. One Day so far is great! I can't wait to see the movie!!

  6. You're not the only one with teeth issues.. I've had so many cavities :( All that sugar when I was younger.. not cool! Good luck & glad you had a good day :)

  7. I'm a sweet tooth now, my Dad had a major sweet tooth too but I just have a couple fillings to get and then Wisdom teeth removal before school starts in the fall. I'm jumping for joy at the mere thought. NOT!


  8. oh.. so nice post.)
    Love your blog.))

    I now spend a survey of bloggers with such questions.
    1. Why did you create a blog?
    2. For whom you taking him? Want to be popular?
    3. How long will it keep going?

  9. Thank you Mary, thanks for dropping by.
    I started my blog as an outlet to get frustrations and any thing else out. Usually it's more good than bad.

    For whom am I taking who? I don't really want to be popular, just heard.

    I've had two blogs in the past 4 years or so so yes I intend to keep blogging until either the internet dies or I do, and I don't see either of those happening for quite some time. :)


  11. lol Lex your such a dork, I love it. I didn't even know we were related until like two years ago.


Thank you for leaving me an assorted thought of your own. :)
