It is *way* too early in the year to be getting this hot!!


This is my atomic clock, there is an indoor thermometer inside this part (pictured) and a separate part that goes outside to take the outside temperature. The top temp is the indoor temp after I broke down and turned on the AC, the bottom temp is the outside temp. Here it's after 4pm, and still reads the same...Ugh! Did I mention how much I hate summer? And here it's just now Spring, feeling like Summer...I'm not ready!

So! The last few days have been taken up by a big project. See, my mom bought my husband a new sink for the bathroom as a Christmas gift. Well, part of the gift was paying to have it installed. We also wanted a new toilet and the carpet taken out to be replaced by tile. We figured that since the sink was going to be out, and we would have to do the tile then, and because of that the toilet would have to be taken up, so may as well do it all at once! We had gotten a smidge of money from housewarming, so we put that towards a new toilet. The sink and tile were part of the gift. So! I have pictures, and there are 5 each of before, during and after. On with the show!

I'll do each one in order of before, during and then after. Starting with the view from the hall:



Here is the view from the bathtub:



The sink by itself:



The toilet by itself (note the *wide* toilet...I had to get one that would seat my fat rear!):



And then the view to the hall:



I am *so* happy with the work my uncle did, and I really think that all that work really made a big difference.

Anywho! Hope everyone's had a good week so far!

Allrighty Then...

It really bites the big one when you find out where you truely stand with a person that you thought you were in tight with...

It is a very terrible feeling to find out because they slip and say something addressed to a bunch of people, and you are one of them. I would much rather have just heard it straight, you know? Does that make me a horribly selfish person to want that? I didn't think so.

Anywho, other than that, I'm battling a pretty painful ear inflammation or something. I'm having to drop a topical antibiotic and pain killer inside my ear. The antibiotic isn't too horrible, nothing less than just normal drops; However, the pain killer looks and feels like corn syrup only slightly oily instead of sticky.

I'm just in a nice little slump, mood wise. That's why the lack of posting. I hate just posting negative stuff all the time, so I just don't post....but reading what I did tonight really hit me in a hard place that I didn't realize was there, for someone that I didn't realize still had the potential to hurt me. *shrugs* I guess I should be used to that by now...

First Wedding Anniversary is Paper

and what better way to give paper, than with tickets!!

Me, my husband and my aunt Paula went to Linkin Park!! It was absolutely, hands down, the best concert I've *ever* been to.

Poor Chester Bennington told us at the start of the concert that he'd been very sick, with no voice the night before and they had seriously considered cancelling. You could tell that he was really struggling towards the end, but you can also tell how absolutely devoted to the music and the people they all are. I wondered: since he was sick and they were that wonderful, how good are they when he's not sick? There is a rumor that they might come to Tulsa once we get our auditorium center open, and I'll be the first in line for tickets if that's true!

There were two opening bands, that in no way compared to the greatness of Linkin Park. They also did TWO encores!

Here are two videos I took:
