Like vacuuming the entire house.
And cleaning both bathrooms.
And lending my talents to Ross’s latest project in his Internet empire.
But, all I can seem to do is watch TV and snuggle with the dogs.
So, basically I am useless. And awesome.
Ross is in Blacksburg this evening to watch the VT/Boston College game. Even though he’s always super busy, we very rarely have a day that we don’t see each other. I was feeling off today – really grumpy and mopey. Then I realized at about 3:00pm that it was all because I missed my hubs. It’s been like walking around without one of my arms today. I actually can’t wait for him to come barging in at 5:00am tomorrow and wake me up by leaving the bathroom light on.
Part of my job is to write the copy for the 404 pages on the sites we create. I seriously love doing this. It’s a chance to help the user figure out where he/she needs to go, and you can sometimes be a little clever. Check out the list below to see some of my favorite 404 pages (and, yes, I have them).
RVA Blogs (and it’s not just because I’m sleeping with the guy in charge.)
Ok, that’s enough nerding out for now. And be sure to check out our resident 404 before you go…don’t think I haven’t looked at yours.
Check out what my lovely hubs gave me for my birthday:
I know it’s not until tomorrow, but since we’ll be so busy hanging out (read: eating and drinking in extreme excess) tomorrow night, he gave me my present tonight. Not only is it from a FANCY store, it’s something I would have totally picked out myself. Love it!
And you know what else? There’s another one coming! He’s in talks with Nikole Sarvay (fawned over here) to get something made just for me, because I apparently said one time that if someone had jewelry custom-made for me, “I would die.”
Thanks, hubs! I love it.
Tomorrow will mark the conclusion of my 25th year on this planet. 25 was pretty good, and I bet 26 will be awesome.
Thanks to Mom and Dad for keeping me alive for the first 18 of them! And thank to Ross for not putting an end to me during the last 4 1/2!
It’s no secret that I have sleeping issues. In a recent effort to help me fall and stay asleep, I bought one of these:
My sleep mask (which happens to be brown and satin-y) forces me to keep my eyes closed and blocks out any light that dares to glow from my alarm clock, the street light outside, or Ross’s computer. On the nights I’ve worn it, I’ve fallen asleep in a matter of minutes, rather than the hour or so it usually takes.
I’m in love.
Friday: Came home to nap. Messed around with the blog. Ate a handful of Wheat Thins for dinner. To bed.
Saturday: Fun time hang out at Monticello (see below for pictures). Ate my weight in ham, green beans, macaroni and cheese, and a brownie sundae for dinner. Home to rest. Spent about 5 minutes at Ipanema before coming home to nurse my fully packed stomach. Did some laundry and off to bed.
Sunday: Up for Loaves & Fishes. Home to rest. Church at 4. To the gym for a quick but productive work out. Picked up dinner on the way home. Now puttering and getting ready for the coming week.
Here are some pictures (courtesy of Susan) of our time at Monticello:
The house. Apparently 1/3 of the glass in the house is original. They are adamant that you touch NOTHING.
Ross explaining to a gentleman from Minnesota exactly what a Hokie is. Here we were on our way to Jefferson’s “park” which consisted of woods, essentially.
3/4 of the Monticello Hang Out during the Garden Tour. A kind lady named Doris lead the tour. Doris knew a lot about Jefferson, and honestly seemed to be a little bit in love with him. Judging from her estimated age, it is possible that she knew him personally.
