Remember when I wrote about the things I loved about having a part-time job? And one of those things was that I was so much more productive? Well, I just realized that I have become so much less productive now that I have more free time. And yes, it took me about a year to realize that. Whoa. Apparently, I’d rather take a nap or watch 150 hours of tv than do anything else.
After discovering that I’m basically doing nothing with my life, I’m trying to be a little more productive. Like finally putting together the photo books from our trip to Europe. I finished one for Portugal and Barcelona, but I still have to do one for Paris and another for Venice and Rome. Oh yeah, and then I need to get started on our Australia and New Zealand trip. I need to stop f*cking around and
start finish them.
I managed to do one thing this week, though. Fred Meyer has a huge flower sale one day a year and it’s happening tomorrow! After my mom sold her house last year, she gave me a bunch of her flower pots (filled with flowers). I now need to fill them with more flowers. As I was getting everything ready, I noticed our pots weren’t looking that great.
As you can see, they are a bit sun bleached. I’m not a big fan of the clay colored ones either. Instead of buying all new pots, I just decided to spray paint them black.
Less than $8 for spray paint and they look brand new. I can’t wait to fill them with flowers.
This has nothing to do with being productive, but are you subscribing to Lenny? It’s a free newsletter that’s issued twice a week. It’s put together by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner and I love it. Some articles are written by celebrities and so many different topics are covered. I read one of my favorites this week. It’s called “Stop Telling Me I Should Have Kids” and it’s written by Joy Bryant. It’s funny and so accurate. Fortunately, I’ve always been pretty open with people about my desire NOT to have kids so I never really felt too much pressure from anyone. It also helps that my siblings reproduced so we have enough monsters to chase around. Thanks Em and Jeff!
Speaking of chasing monsters, we spent a few hours on Sunday with this lady:
Her jumper/romper thing is too adorable. She was also wearing pearls and “gorgeous” shoes. Despite all of my sister’s attempts to make Kennedy a tomboy, she appears to be a girly-girl. And she loves to compliment me on my nail polish. Obviously, she has good taste.
