A Whole Bunch of Random

Happy 4th of July!

While it’s nice not having to work today, I kind of hate having holidays during the middle of the week.  I worked yesterday & have to go back to work tomorrow which will feel like Monday all over again.  🙁   Oh well, at least we have a four day week instead of five!  

I recently picked up an online position which I have to start today.  I actually should have started yesterday but it was a busy day/evening!  Basically, I only have to work for one hour per day but for five days.  I’ve been going back & forth for a LONG time about getting a second job (…student loans are the devil…) but wanted something flexible.  Or something I could do just a few hours per month on the weekends.  I don’t think I could handle working my full time job & then immediately have to go to another job the same day.  So, we will see how this at home job goes.  If it doesn’t work out, I guess I’ll go back to scouring Craiglist for part-time jobs again.

I’ve been stalking Old Navy ever since I got the email about their $8 dresses.  I went to two different stores this past weekend but they were all sold out.  Then, I kept checking the website to see if they were going to offer free shipping for the holiday but haven’t seen that either.  I waited too long because now the green & royal blue colors are all sold out in my size, of course.  I’m cheap & hate paying for shipping, especially when it costs more than the item I want.  I sucked it up & finally just decided to order the damn dress this morning because they are now 20% off.  (I ordered this striped one & the black one).  

I bet they re-stock the two colors I wanted after this sale.  That’s usually how it goes, right?  I’ve been living in dresses the past few months because jeans are not my friend right now.  I’m either gaining weight or I need to lay off the leg workouts for awhile.  I like to think it’s the latter because everything else still fits fine.  

The only pictures I’ve taken in the past two weeks are of Mackenzie, our foster dog.  Which is part of the reason I haven’t really blogged much lately.  Sure, I don’t need to put pictures in every post but then I feel like I don’t have much to say!  Blogging in general has kind of felt like a chore some days.  Like, why is there not enough time in the day!??  And how the heck was I able to blog so much in the past, haha.  

Of course I can’t not include a picture of the pup!  We’ve had her for two weeks now & she has been so much fun.  She’s so laid back & probably the laziest dog I’ve ever seen.  And yes, she lays with her legs spread out like a person.  It sounds like someone is interested in adopting her so we may not have her for much longer.  🙁  

Well, it’s already after 11am and I’ve accomplished nothing so far today.  I think I’ll hit up the gym some time today but other than that, we don’t have much planned.  Have a great day (and holiday!)!!
