Funk.

David left for Houston last Thursday.

And I can barely breathe when I think about how long it will be before I see him again.

I used to love being at home alone, catching up on work or chores or just laying on the couch watching the tv shows I know he cannot stand (i.e., Glee, Private Practice, and Grey's Anatomy...).

But I love being with him more, and I find myself crying often during the day.  Or night.  Or just whenever.

I'm pretty much miserable. 

Despite the fact that I am sleeping better than I ever have...no elbowing him in the back in the middle of the night due to his snoring....

I know this is only temporary, I know the time will pass quickly, and I know I will, on some level, just get used to this and move on...

but for the time being, I am in a funk.  And I really miss my husband.

The Girlie Show

My friend Addy and I are trying to get into The Girlie Show in November.  It is held at the Farmers Market in Oklahoma City, and it is specifically for women to showcase their creative endeavors...but so many apply to get in each year, it's definitely not a guarantee, so we are thinking that if we did it together, we had a better shot of getting in and getting our stuff seen.  And bought.

I need some help though.  I'm going to do Christmas cards, but I need to know which ones to print and which designs appear to be the most popular, so I can print more of those.

So if you could, just take a sec and let me know which of the following designs are more appealing to you...I'd appreciate it!

OSU Graduate

He may never wrap his arms around his fellow alumni, sway and sing all the correct words to the alma mater.

He may never be able to get that pesky arm "S" down (hint: left hand up...always).

And the color orange?  Yeah, probably never going to wear it again.

But D is an OSU graduate...and that's all I care about!




And in case anyone missed his big interview for the Stillwater Newspress, here it is: http://www.stwnewspress.com/local/x1113183129/Oklahoma-State-University-students-take-first-steps-after-college

So congrats, hubs!!  Yay!

Labels.

The hubs sometimes confuses me. 

He refers to the garbage disposal as the "trash compactor."  

And sometimes, the dishwasher is the "washing machine."

And other times, my car...is "his car."

I'm considering getting a label maker.

And theeeenn??

David and I went to New China Super Buffet on Saturday.  We normally play a game called "Guess the number of morbidly obese people that will be here"...it's a fun game, I promise.

But this particular visit, we played a different game.  It was called "Whoa...didn't know you could do that at a restaurant, but whatever..."

Here's what we learned from this game:

1) It is perfectly acceptable to fall asleep at your booth after finishing your meal.

2) When at a buffet, and the item you want is nearly gone, go ahead and elbow the 7 year old out of the way...no need to wait for more sweet and sour chicken.

3) Your belly button itch?  Just go ahead and lift up that shirt and get after it.  The people eating around you won't mind one bit.

Can't wait to go back and see what else this game has in store for us.
