sinks, chairs and football oh my!

Last week was the first time I have wanted to actually deep clean my house since I left my job.  I have just been so upset.  I was able to do the floors, dust and clean the bathrooms.  While I was cleaning in Josh's bathroom, I noticed it smelled like mold.  I cleaned everything out and had Karl look at it.  Well, there was a leak and he said who knows how long it had been leaking.  This is an advantage to being actually have time to notice these things.  Anyway, he replaced our sink and sink cabinet and we are thinking of taking the wallpaper down and painting.  Just making it a project.  Here is the sink.  It is not the best picture in the world, but it is a small bathroom and it was hard to take a picture of it.  So I spent Monday and Tuesday cleaning.  Karl installed the sink over a couple of days in the evening.  I really wish I had before and after pictures.  The other sink was so ugly.
Thursday I met my friends Britni and Malinda for breakfast.  We had so much fun visiting.  I worked with Malinda last year...she also left the preschool as they were going to move both of us too far away.  Britni was one of our parents, but I can say she is a wonderful friend.  It was fun, I think we should meet like once a month and have breakfast if we can.  Well, after breakfast I went to visit my mom and dad's.  I was really tired, so I did not have any energy to help her clean her house, but we did make plans to go chair shopping the next day for my dad.  His chair was broken and he had been sitting sideways.  We found him this chair.  Karl and I picked it up Saturday morning and took it down and got him all set up.  Friday night my Kansas City Chiefs were playing football on tv.  I know it is just pre-season, but I love to watch them and they won...after that the St. Louis Cardinals were on, but their game was not good. They lost to the Padres.  I went to bed early.  Saturday night was awful.  We had lasagne and I have acid reflux, so my stomach was cramping bad.  It was awful.  No more lasagne for me.  It was a long night of pain.  It stopped around 4:30AM and then it started storming ouside.  I slept in a little on Sunday and today after I dropped Josh off at school I came home and went back to bed.  Now I need to clean house and tonight is a Sylvan night for Josh.  He gets tutoring for math.  Here is a picture of me before my Chiefs game in case you missed it on facebook.  It is actually a current picture.  Many of the pictures I use on facebook are getting old.
I am thinking since people do not post much at their blogs anymore I will post once a week.  I do not have that much going on anyway.   Have a great week!

  1. Hi Lori. Looking good girlfriend. I'm so glad you're coming out of your funk. When you're done there could you please come here. We are in desperate need of a good clean. Hugz!

  2. Hi Lori,
    It can be hard to post every day. I feel that blogging should be fun and a journal of life but done when a person can whether its daily, weekly or whatever.

  3. Lori that's a cute pic, I love it. I don't know why you don't have your job anymore, but I can only imagine after how hard you worked to get it, it would be very upsetting to not have it. Glad to see you are making the best of things. Hugs xo xo

  4. Everything looks great with the kitchen and bathroom by the way

  5. Hi Lori,
    I understand being unmotivated when you are upset. I'm glad you are starting to feel a bit better. Your little sink is really cute. I was wondering if you had ever thought about being a paraprofessional at a school closer to where you live. I know it's not the same as teaching, but at least you'd still be working with kids.

    I need to get motivated to get my prerequisites going so I can start my education program. I'm still trying to adjust to my new schedule and I have felt so tired all week. I hope this next week will be a turning point because I have four classes to get through and it will be hard without motivation.

    Great picture of you in your KC shirt! :) Have a blessed weekend sweetie! xo
