He's currently tucked under his covers with his ginger ale on the nightstand and lined bucket beside the bed...just in case. I'm hoping it won't come to that but if he has what I had, it is only a matter of time. I just hope he's well by Thursday and that Charlie doesn't get hit because we are supposed to head for the coast Thursday morning since school is out for two teacher workdays the end of the week and we didn't take a beach trip over the summer and the mighty sea is calling my name. I need a fix.
I also need to do laundry, clean the house, start packing and attempt to bring some sense of order back to my closet. Because yes, I have done it again. My closet is completely out of control. I'm talking so out of control that it frightens me to open the door. I went in to get a shirt this morning and barely made it back out alive. It's beginning to look a lot like hoarder in there. Seriously. What is my problem?
Charlie has witnessed me spend hours and hours on that closet, time and time again, and is always impressed when I emerge from battle with a closet that could have been organized by a certified closet organizer. (Not that I would know if there really is a such thing as a "certified" closet organizer.) I love it like that. So much so that I go in just to admire my hard work. Why I can't keep it that way for any extended period of time is completely beyond my comprehension. For years I would lie to myself each time I organized it. I'm going to keep it this way forever and ever this time....Just you wait and see!
I have since gotten to know myself better. Now I take a picture so it'll last longer. If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you've most likely seen one or two of them which is why I'm not going to show them to you again now. It would just hurt my feelings to look at them right now anyway.
What I am going to show you though are a few new things I'm loving right now....
This teal nail polish. I went to Target last week (the day before the bug showed up) and remembered that I had recently seen/read somewhere that navy is one of the hot new nail polish colors right now so I was searching for that. Although I didn't find a navy I thought I could live with, I fell in love with this deep teal shade that is now chipping off my fingernails. Add that to my list of things I must do today...
Go Overboard by Essie It looks a little darker than this in person and I wasn't sure if I'd like it as much once it was on but so far I'm loving it. Perfect for fall.
Old Navy Boot-Cut Cords I have a few pairs of the colored skinny jeans that are so popular right now but sometimes I'm just not feeling skinny and I'm finding it harder and harder to find a good pair of pants/jeans that aren't skinnies which is why I was thrilled to find these babies. They are so soft, comfy and best of all...forgiving. I highly recommend them.
This memoir by Buffi Neal that I just recently finished on my Kindle. This is her first book and I just love her. Can't wait for her second! She has such a gift for storytelling and made me feel like I'd known her for years. If you're looking for a good read, this is it.
Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector I've always had the dark circles problem, even when I was a kid. I've been told it's genetic. Whatever. I've been using this stuff for a few weeks now and while I don't think it's possible to completely get rid of them, I can definitely tell a difference! I'm hooked.
These wrap bracelets on etsy I came across these the other day and my mouth is practically watering over them. I want. There are different styles and colors but I like this one because it would go with anything.
This quote Truer words were never spoken. Believe it.
By the way, Sirius Black is a fictional character from the Harry Potter books so really, shouldn't this quote be attributed to J.K. Rowling? Just thought I'd clear that up.
