More Random

I want to write a blog post and postpone the inevitable bedtime routine, but I don't really have much to say. So here's a list.

- The job search continues.

- Yesterday I did a batch (some people call it a "load") of laundry. Jeans were on the docket. I washed 7 pairs of jeans, and only 6 pairs were mine. Remind me why I think I need new jeans?

- Does anyone have a phone - an old school, plug in the phone jack, non-cellular, land line phone - that I can have? I'm trying out a thing called magicjack which requires an actual phone. I could probably buy one at DI, which is what I might do if no one coughs one up (or I could probably make a find if I hit up a yardsale or two come Saturday).

- Corey and I might be moving into another basement apartment just a few steps away from our current one. More on that later.

- The Brigham City Utah Temple had the statue of angel Moroni placed on top yesterday. The photos of the temple look gorgeous and are inspiring. You can learn more/see photos here.

- I'm still writing thank you cards for our wedding. Ridiculous, I know. Embarrassing, even more so. Ah me. Part of me hopes people can't do the math in their head and realize we've been married just short of 20 months. It may be tacky, but at least they are getting a thank you note, right? And even though we're nearing the two year mark, I still AM very grateful! And, I've become more grateful for everyone's service to us as I've been writing them.

We have one. You can totally use it. It is nothing fancy though!

When are we going pants shopping?

We also have one said phone that you could have. I believe it even has a voice mail built in. And for the record I finished my wedding thank you notes just in time to send out thank you notes from a baby shower. People understand...because you're amazing!

We have several extra phones. Good luck on stinky stinky job hunting. I can think of an alternative for you to job hunting, but it takes nine months.

At least you weren't writing wedding and baby thank you notes at the same time! That's what I did, and probably the only reason I was spurred to finish!

Haha. I love the bit about jeans. It's the same way in our house. I always tell Greg I need more jeans then I do laundry and see the 10 to 1 ratio of mine to his. Oops! I always tell him just because I have many jeans doesn't mean i like them all. Some of them don't fit or flatter. Does that justify it? :-)

Just read about you still writing thank-you cards. I totally relate. I wrote my cards over a year later but I'm glad I did.

Well, I'm really mad that you haven't given me our thank-you card yet. Oh wait, maybe we didn't give you a wedding present. Oops. I filled all your nut cups for your reception, that counts. :) I agree with JJ!!!
