- Clayton officially started classes for a second degree in radiation therapy and he's already aced every assignment and quiz. I'm so gosh darn proud of him, I just want to shout "MY HUSBAND IS THE SMARTEST MAN ON EARTH!", but I haven't found an appropriate way to work that into daily conversation.
- There are shoe marks literally covering the walls of our townhouse. Clayton's right leather sandal is our chosen spider-crushing weapon of choice and sadly, we've had to utilize it often this summer. Using Clay's shoe is the only way I can reach the loathsome little creatures running across the upper walls, and I'm usually too traumatized by the experience (and I can't reach high enough) to grab a rag and wipe up my kill.
- Clay walked in on me lip-syncing and dancing to the music of Glee while I was running on the treadmill on Sunday, and it was probably one of the most embarrassing moments of my life. He always knew I was dorky, but he had no idea I was that dorky.
- My mother-in-law graciously loaned me her old bicycle to train with for
my upcoming spring triathlon. I haven't been on a bike in years, but I
didn't figure that would be an issue because come on, riding a bike is
like ... riding a bike ... you never forget.
I totally forgot.
I peddled down my in-law's street, but I couldn't remember how to turn around. Instead of making a U-turn like a normal person, I rode into the woods and crashed into some bushes. It took me a solid 5 minutes to pull weeds and foliage from the tire spokes. This triathlon could very well kill me.
- I'm really, really into lip gloss and lipstick of all a sudden. I've always loved make-up, but I never liked the feeling of having anything other than
hot menchapstick on my lips. I would always glam up my eyes and skin, but that would be it. I didn't even care if it left me looking washed out in the mouth area; there's nothing worse than a strand of hair getting stuck in the goopy pile of gloss on your lips.
But the other day I fell completely in love with Maybelline's Baby Lips balm. This little tube of balmy wonder was the gateway into a whole new world of lip products. I was so in love with the light, glossy sheen that I took a family member up on her offer and purchased some Mary Kay products with an amazing discount. I ordered a bright berry gloss and a gorgeous, neutral shade called "Glazed Apricot". Now I'm totally one of those girls who preens her lips after taking a sip of water.
Me, the girl who used to sleep and shower in a baseball hat is totally into lip gloss ... who would have thought?
