Putting my defenses up

I finally saw Silver Linings Playbook. (No spoilers). I expected to like it much more. I usually love those type of films. But it wasn’t a waste of time. I liked it. What I did love about it is how it portrayed mental illness. Maybe it was just me but it made it seem like having um, mental issues are normal. I loved the convo about ‘what meds are you on?’. I loved it! I’ve dream of having that conversation and not being judged. I’m glad other people loved it. It is just a movie but maybe it erased 1% of the mental illness stigma.


I did get some responses from my apartment ad. But no one wanted to see it today. (two people want to see it later). The one person who really seemed interested didn’t reply back after I told her exactly where it was. I think the location is too far out for most people. It is about 20 minutes from downtown. That’s not good. When I re-post, it will be with June being rent free so I’m sure I will get more responses.  O GOD. Someone else just emailed me about the apartment. *&$#. I’m all sweaty (see below). Maybe she’ll wait to see it tomorrow. I’m working OT for half a day tomorrow….


I mowed my whole lawn today for the first time. What a workout. I meant to include pics of my lawn in this post but I forgot to take pictures so that will be in the next home post. These pics are definitely before pics. I’ve been here for about 2 weeks. I hope to have after pics soon but who knows?



Shelves above my bed. I didn’t know quite what to do with this space. But now I use it as a nightstand since I don’t have anything beside my bed.

My “walk-in” closet is more of a junk room:

There is definitely something missing from my kitchen. It is big but it doesn’t have a lot of counter space. It is my least favorite space. I’m trying to come up with ideas. (Love my plant though). The towel on the window is a long story and will be fixed soon.

The living room. Today I put an accent rug down and even that makes it better. This is the least put together room. Everything seems to land here. (Remember these are before pics!)

Living room. I am embarrassed by my lack of books on these shelves. I have dreamed of having shelves and now I have no books. My books are at my moms house, all packed up. I might eventually get some of them…Yes I have a tiny TV in the living room because I’m in my bedroom most of the time.

I should be embarrassed by this. ha. This is my Project Life spot. I don’t even do PL on the weekly basis yet I have a spot for it. lol. This is really my dining room. The other side is my work office. I already posted a pic of that.

Have I mentioned that these are BEFORE pics? 😉
