Ramblings of a Girl at Work

This weekend is the Sewing and Craft show. I didn’t mention it to mom until last might. She was a little disappointed. I told her she could go today but she said she would rather paint her room. A good answer I thought. The truth is I have much too much in the way of unfinished projects and projects still to start, between beading, cross-stitching, scrapbooking and sewing. I didn’t really see the point in going.

I have to go through my cloths at some point and get rid of a lot of them. I hate doing it though. Since I haven’t changed in size since before 7th grade it seams silly to get rid of cloths that still fit. I have a nice figure (despite my slight muffin top) and many of the shifts and pants do little to accent it. Truth be told my wardroom needs a bit more updates, you can only look 15 in jeans and t-shift for so long before it gets a bit ridicules in a work and ‘adultish’ environment.   I also need to just take all my cloths out and refold and put back away. I have summer cloths and winter cloths all messed up together. So at some point I will have to take some time to sort thought cloths.

Yesterday before I wrote my blog post but after I got home I decided to recock the exterior door frame of the fount of the house. It needed to be done like 2 years ago but I didn’t realise it until this past summer.  During a heavily storm water started to pour though the interior wood door frame. I also have to re-due the cocking around the bath tubs and mom’s stand up show inside the house but that’s for another day. I don’t own the house but I seam to be the one that does most of the structural repairs. I want so badly to have a place of my own. How much I hate to be in debt. The sad part is I can’t honestly say I think it was worth it.  In this economy my education seams more like a liability than an asset.

PS: i'll post my spending recap later this evening


  1. I've been in a funk lately too - I think because I've had a cold for FOUR weeks and I'm sick of being SICK!! I've been working on the clothing thing - have taken 5 bagfulls to Talize!

  2. I just threw out a few pieces of clothing from my wardrobe as well. I have a lot of clothes from younger as well but not because I haven't grown but I've always owned way too big clothes so there was never a chance to outgrow them and unlike a girl, guys don't have that much options to their wardrobe so I not stressing updating it.

    I too want to own my own place so bad. I think about it and think about it and think about it. It's part of the reason I've decided to start paying rent(something I have to explain in a post soon).

    Anyways, I know how you feel. We just need to be patient and continue working towards that goal. I believe both you and I will succeed and it will be awesome. Keep up the great work.

  3. Never treat your knowledge/education as a liability. If you had to hire someone to do the work you can do yourself, then it'd get expensive. If you are renting, is it the tenant's responsibilities to maintain the houses' structures? You could ask your landlord to help out, since you're doing long term repairs...
