Just random.

So because I have lots of random things to say,
this is going to be a bulleted post..
feel free to skip around if you'd like.
I'm typing just to type.

  • Tonight Big Brother 12 started. (Which I think will be a great season since there are lots of twists!) I was so into it last season that I decided to tune in this season as well. I went over my dad's to watch it because him and my step mom are huge fans. I really like spending time over there because I don't get to do it as often as I'd like. With working everyday and then trying to go to the gym and also seeing the bf, sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day. I do make that effort though to call a few times a week. It's just nice to see everyone. I really need to make more time for them before there isn't any and I regret not doing it.

  • I though that once summer came, I would be making a lot more money. But since my other boss (I work for 2 families) is on maternity leave for the ENTIRE summer, I'm only watching one child so I make less. I'm broke. I have no idea where my money goes. Honestly. I can't figure it out. Yes, I have bills to pay and stuff, but I haven't been shopping or anything like that. I also have my savings account but I refuse to touch that for something that isn't important. It's driving me carrazzzy too because I haven't been shopping in so so long and I really want to go but I can't spend money I don't have. Ughhh. And I want to buy the new Droid X when it comes out but I'm not quite sure how I'm going to.

  • I also thought that when summer came, I'd have more time for this blog. But since I'm working 4 days a week and I can't use the computer at work, I'm falling behind on posts and reader. I feel bad about it too because I really enjoy this community and getting to know some many wonderful people. Once I get home from the gym (if I don't go to M's) it's 7 PM and I still have to eat dinner, shower, pack my lunch, etc. and before I know it, I'm ready for bed. Sometimes I think about taking a blog break but I know I'd miss it too much. I need to find a solution. Do any of you have this problem?

  • My life during the week feels like the movie groundhog's day! Same thing over and over again. Wake up, go to work, go to the gym, see M, go to bed and do it ALL over again! AHH isn't summer supposed to be about fun?! Growing up stinks! When I was young, I had to decide whether I wanted to go swimming or ride my bike. Now I have no choice but to go to work. I don't like it one bit.

  • I reached 200 followers! This amazes me. I barely post yet people still think my once a week posts are interesting. You all are great! I am going to get around to a great giveaway! I PROMISE! Someone needs to hold me to this so I don't forget. I want to do something good for you girls since you're so loyal and continue to read. I love knowing that I have people across this country who can relate to so many things I say and that you're all just a blog post away :-)
Ok, that's it for now. I think I've ranted enough.
I don't mean to be a downer in this post at all but
I just had to get some things off my chest.
Sorry if this bored you or anything but it is my blog
and my place to say how I feel.
I hope you're all doing great and have a fun weekend!

Yay! Congrats on 200 followers! That's awesome :)

Girl, I totally know what you mean about the money...where does it go?! LOL!

I really only blog at work...but once I start my new position, I'm not sure if I will have much time...which means I will fall behind...I need to think of a solution, too!

Brittany said...

I noticed the 200 followers, I was going to comment that, and then you beat me to the punch!

I agree with both you AND aly! I was making my list of things i need, and I was like wellll... I don't think this will all be purchased this month :)

Summer is tough for blogging, I'm so busy just "living" that blogging takes a back seat. I've tried to catch up this week but there is so much to read!

Girl I feel the same way you do. I thought summer would mean more money and more fun. That is not the case @ all. I hope everything works out for you!! Good Luck!

Caitlin said...

I could have easily written all of those bullet points. It's tough out there! I've fallen behind a few times, but I find that I post when I really feel the need, which is more often than I think.

I hope your summer gets better!! :)

I loved this! I feel you on all of these. Especially not knowing where my money goes and the groundhogs day!

Hope you find your money :-)

Vanessa said...

I love Big Brother! All the twists and drama sucks me in every time!

I hope your money situation gets better. <3

Whitney said...

I know what you mean about the money! I don't have a job. The only money I have is the money I get for loans. That alone is barely enough to pay my bills. It isn't enough to make a dent on my credit card payment. I need make sure I can spread it out as long as I can.

I miss shopping too! The only stuff I have bought lately is groceries and gas. I need to go shopping! There is so many cute clothes that I need to buy!

Jenn @ WestSacHoney said...

I think that doing a once a week post is just fine and I actually like your ranting posts! It wasn't a downer but I know what you mean about money and wanting to spend more time with your family. I spent the whole weekend with my mom last weekend and it was great it's hard not living at home and making time for everyone and everything you need to do. Miss ya!

Kelsey Claire said...

Congrats on 200 followers! That is so exciting. I have been horrible about my blog as well, even though I thought I would have so much time for it! Oh well! Have a great weekend!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I know how you feel, the summer has been crazy busy. I think just finding a balance and I always try to make "Me" time where I can check my email, blog etc.

Heather said...

Yay for 200 followers :). You shouldn't worry that you don't post as often as you would just makes your posts better :). We all enjoy your blog!

I feel like I'm living in Groundhogs Days too...just the same stuff, repeated. We'll get out of our slump though!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

Well congrats on the 200 followers!!
Groundhog's day... I hear you. I feel like my Mon-Friday are the same thing too! boo.
