Boring days and the Healthy way to clean... lol

You know it's hard to think about something to write about every day. I don't see how people do it. Once a week bloggers? I can get behind that. I mean that gives you a whole 7 days to have something interesting happen to you. Life is boring sometimes... Like today, the most exciting thing that happened today was the possibility of a tornado. There could have been a tornado in town. Was there? No. It just rained really hard for about 30 minutes. Then it stopped. It might have sprinkled off and on since then, but that was the HIGHLIGHT of my day. That, and lunch with Matthew, but even lunch was just eh... What do you do when your life is just "eh...?" I mean, stay at home Moms must be going out of their MINDS!!!! I don't think I can take another day of just sitting around the house. It's too hot or too muggy or too rainy to go outside lately, so I'm stuck in this messy house with not much motivation to clean it so I just fill out applications all day and then wait for Matthew to come home. My life is being defined by meals. Oh what will I do until Lunch time? What do I do until it's Dinner time? I need to start working out. Maybe that's what I'll do "between meals"... I'll just work out. Maybe I'll get all toned and skinny. That would be SWEET! Maybe that's what I'll start blogging about? ... Probably not, but it'll give me something to do while I wait for people to call me back and it'll put me in better shape and I'll probably start eating healthier too, which will mean Matthew might be eating a little healthier too. So this is a great idea! Heathly living means more energy which means CLEANER HOUSE! Done. That's my logic folks. If I work out then my house will get cleaner. LOL! Wow...

Thursday, September 22, 2011 and getting used to not changing...

Apparently someone has posted the link to my blog on a website called I tried to check it out and it seems like the moderator of that site is kind of a dick, but whatevs, as long as it gets my blog out there and maybe people will see it and like it, then who cares right? I'm still kind of finding my way into this blogging thing. I've basically been rambling on for the past few days about stupid shit. Mostly about me and Matt, my husband. Speaking of Matt, you know I thought marriage was going to be different. I mean, sure we'd been living together for like 4 years, but I thought maybe when we got married things would change. They haven't. We still live in this house we are renting with our roommate, who shall remain nameless (I mean, he usually keeps to himself. He's quiet when he isn't screaming bloody murder at his TV while playing COD or Madden on his Xbox). I don't know what I really thought was going to be different though. Like magically we'd both be super mature grownups and it would be like the 50's. He'd come home from work and kiss me on the cheek as I finished making dinner (of course I'd be all dolled up and in heels). The dog would bring Matt his slippers and then lay down next to him as he sat in his favorite chair and read the paper. I mean, who reads the newspaper anymore? I feel like the house should be immaculate and everything should be PERFECT and it's not. Nor will it ever be that way. I don't know where this weird dream fantasy came from but it's sure hard to shake. I love Matt and I love being married to him. I guess it's hard to let go of the planning stages of marriage for the actual MARRIED part of marriage. Now that we are married I feel like I have to sit down and concoct some life plan for the two of us. No more winging it! You're married now! Maybe we should though. I don't know, I've never been married before. ;) I'm new to all this stuff. Anybody out there married? Did you go through this "phase?" What should I do? The only thing I was worried about was changing my last name on all my paperwork and IDs. That was easy. Yet I still find myself signing my maiden name. I guess there's a lot of things I need to get used to...

Nazi Mosquito

There is a mosquito in my house. It is stealthily attacking my body. I don't know why they attack me and not Matt. We could be standing side by side and I'll have 7 or 8 bites in one minute and Matt will have 0, none, zip, zilch. WTF!? Well according to a blog I found on this very subject ( apparently I smell good, wear pretty clothes, and I must be just smoking hot! Or in human terms, I must sweat a lot (no, not really), wear dark clothing which retains heat better (this could be true, however today I am wearing white), and give off more heat than Matthew. If any of you know me/us, you'd know that it should be MATT that is getting attacked according to this information. He's the sweaty boy who is like a freaking heater! I just don't get it and I would like to formally conclude that mosquitoes are useless and I wish them all dead. Along with roaches, who also are useless and they creep me out. Did I mention that I hate bugs? **shudder**

Cleaning Mode!

I feel like now that Matt and I are married, I have to throw away all of our useless junk (for any of the male readers, please notice I did say OUR junk, not HIS junk... though he does have his fair share). So I'm thinking about having a yard sale this weekend if the weather clears up. Matt had today off from work so we ran some errands (which included a trip to buy Gears of War 3 for him) but we had a deal to clean out our spare room, which has become a refuge for Matthew's games and toys from his youth ie: baseball cards, dragonball Z cards, transformers, VHS videos, PS2 and other games. This room looks like the 80's/early 90's threw up all over the place. We put his old bed in there along with his massive amount of pillows so it's completely crowded and it looks like he and Rowdy have made their own little man's nest in there. It's so funny to walk back there and see Matt playing PS2 sitting on the floor leaned up against the bed while Rowdy sprawls out amidst the 15+ pillows and sheets. Sometimes you can't even see Rowdy because he will literally bury himself. So needless to say the room is creepy and must be destroyed. So I decided to make a deal with Matthew, if he helped me go through that room and determine what needed to be sold at the yard sale and help me box it up or stack it up, then he could play Gears of War the rest of the night with no interruptions. Poor Matthew, did I mention he has ADD and for some reason MUST turn on the TV while he cleans, which distracts him to the point of stopping for each show that catches his interest? I got the linens out and his toys stacked against a wall and the bed up before he quit, made a pallet on the floor out of the 15+ pillows and laid down to watch TV. Not as much work as I was hoping to get done, but better than nothing. Tomorrow I think I'll unplug all the TVs so that we can ACTUALLY make some progress in this sorting/cleaning phase. I've been watching that show "Hoarders" and I'm afraid if we don't do some serious chucking of junk that we might end up that way. I see some of the things I do or say or think in those people and it freaks me out. There are random things that I have saved for "just in case" or because I got it on sale or "it's still good" or "I can fix that." I don't want to end up like those people, so I've just started trashing stuff or donating it. Do you ever get in that kind of mood? You know where you look around and go "what IS all this crap?" That's basically where I'm at. Matthew and I have both been on our own for quite a few years now, so when we got engaged, we didn't really need all the typical wedding gifts. We have 2 toasters, 3 coffee makers, 3 crock pots, blenders, choppers, grills 5 TVs!!!, VCRs, DVD players, 3 stereos... the list goes on and we've just kept it all!! So it's time to sell it. If there's anything you need, speak now! Otherwise we are yard selling it and saving up to buy ourselves a new bed and then maybe start saving to buy a house. Yea, bed first THEN a house. We have our priorities straight!

Edits and Wedding Gifts...

So this thing is kind of fun to customize and whatnot. I wish I knew more about computers and fabricating my own design. I have ideas, I just don't know how to write code or anything like that. But I've worked with their templates a little bit and have added photos and colors and now you can see a few pictures of me, Matt and Rowdy. I know you are excited... lol.

So it's been a week (and a day) since Matt and I got married. We finally bought some thank you cards today so now I can start writing and mailing them out. I had this awesome idea that Matt and I should take pictures of eachother using our wedding gifts and enclose them with the thank you notes. I think it would be funny and cool as hell. I mean we got some neat gifts, why not show them off. I think my FAVORITE gift we got is a dinosaur muffin pan. Yes, you read correctly, a DINOSAUR muffin pan! It's so freaking cool! the whole pan is shaped like a dino foot and then there are T-Rexes and Triceratops, and Sauropods! It's so freaking neat. I can't wait to make muffins, or maybe mini dinosaur cakes! AHH!! It's gonna be rad. If you want to check it out for yourself go here:

So have you ever gotten a really cool gift and couldn't wait to show it off? Let me know! Show me pictures or send me a link. I'd love to check it out!

P.S. I'll post pics of the dino muffins/cakes as soon as we make some! Can't wait!!!!

Well lets start this off with an intro shall we?

Hi there! I'm Kimberly. I'm 26 years old and live in South Georgia. I am recently married (one week and a day!!!) and my husband and I have the CUTEST black lab named Rowdy. He will be 3 years old in October. Rowy's name is completely fitting... He is rambunctious and is always getting himself into a bit of trouble. He loves to lay in the kitchen and stare out the sliding glass doors. He likes to watch the birds and the squirrels and the neighbor's cat. When he thinks one is close enough in range, he'll start chirping and circling and barking at us to open the door. It's the funniest thing ever. As for me and the hubster, well his name is Matthew (Matt) and he's a server at 2 different restaurants in town. I am currently looking for a job. I used to work for a large chain accessories store, but they weren't very nice people, so after a little over a year with them, I quit my job (2 months before my WEDDING!). It's been interesting so far to say the least. We live in a college town, so finding work is a little more difficult than usual. Some companies prefer to hire the college kids because they won't cry about only working 1-2 days a week, some prefer NON college students so that they KNOW they won't be asking off because they forgot to study for a test or something. The hard part is finding out which business wants what. But anywho, I don't really want my blog to be about me whining about not being able to find a job. I really want to be able to relate to a large group of people, and I'd rather brighten your day than dull it down, soooo... What should I talk about? Anyone have suggestions? I love music, but I'm no expert. I like to watch Doctor Who, maybe I can blog about that every Sunday. Maybe I can just recall some awesome stories about things that have happened in my life.... We'll go with that for now. I'll think of something fun. Maybe it'll just be randomness everyday. I like that. Done!
