Working from Home

I don’t think I ever officially updated on my work situation. A few days before giving my notice at Scientific-Atlanta, I thought about how perfect my job is to be done from home. All I need is a computer and I am good to go. I proposed the idea of telecommuting to my boss. He…

    distractions? is that what you call watching a whole season of buffy in one day?

  • HollyMarch 2, 2006 - 11:09 am

    Hmm yes – that is one. I finished the last episode today. Now my free time will be spent unpacking and studying for my big test.

    I had so very little to do today that I was sitting here staring at the computer wondering what websites I could read and I thought of this one after I got bored of CNN. Man how my job has changed over the last two months. So you should email me more.

  • HollyMarch 2, 2006 - 2:43 pm

    I rank after CNN? How sad 🙁
    Email you more – no problem. Ask Steven, I am good at email!

  • JamieMarch 2, 2006 - 3:51 pm

    Well I did not mean you ranked after CNN. Just that I was not in the habit of checking out this website. The “news” on here is much more entertaining…and personal.

    You have redeemed yourself. Actually, I’m just happy regardless of when you check it. I love comments!

A Pouting Madison

Madison has gotten a little more aggressive in her begging. Initially she would sit by the table and wait till we were done. Then she would get a small bite. Now anytime there is food she sits, but soon tires, and puts her head on your leg. That’s cute the first couple times, but it…

    Aww, she looks so sad! Lady is bad about begging and she even goes so far as to put her paw in your lap. If you’re not careful, she will use her paw like a hand and pull your hand down from your mouth and pull it towards hers!

  • HollyFebruary 28, 2006 - 2:28 pm

    I can just see Madison learning that maneuver. I am still trying to get her to sit when someone comes to the door…

Moving In

Today I hid out upstairs. The movers are really nice guys but I have been with them for two days straight. I took Madison, my book, and my Buffy DVDs, and tucked away in the upstairs bedroom. Talk about being a lump on a log! Almost no room in the house can be completely put…

    hey–if it makes you feel better—i have a whole upstairs that i have yet to decorate

  • HollyMarch 2, 2006 - 11:10 am

    That does make me feel better. I hate this in-between when nothing is finished and so much is in the “waiting” stage.

Blue Lights and a Siren

Well the movers came today. They were quite a bit late (evidently they got stuck in Lebanon, TN), but they arrived en mass and got right to work. Now I have boxes everywhere, but I didn’t have to do any of it myself! The only thing broken in the packing was a ramekin, which I…

    So what, exactly, did you get pulled over for?

    This all sounds suspiciously like a story Wade told me about a trip he took between Atl and TN. The full car. The cop. Moving. Very very similiar.

    Also, shame on you guys for not knowing that sharks are fish. Everyone knows that the largest fish in the sea is the Whale Shark. Didn’t you guys read ‘Ranger Rick’ growing up!?

    Finally, with this added bit of info about mammals nursing their young, I think the term ‘mammary gland’ has a bit more context, don’t you think?

  • HollyFebruary 27, 2006 - 11:57 am

    It is very similar to Wade’s story except he got pulled over for his car being full. My cop didn’t mention how full my car was. He just wanted to give me a ticket.

    Mammary gland may be the proper term, but Wade wanted to use the word “Teet” in the conversation…..

Oops Paint

Home Depot has its Oops Paint, which I like to buy, and I have mine. Only mine was more of a paint accident. We finally got the walls in the sunroom ready to paint after much scraping, sanding, patching, and priming. Wade was a slavedriver so we painted late into the night (actually he went…

    Looks beautiful! I love that pretty yellow color!

  • JennyFebruary 23, 2006 - 11:41 am

    Johnna is right—it looks great and so does the closet

  • HollyFebruary 23, 2006 - 12:44 pm

    Thanks! Wade and I decided that room is going to look fantastic (or at least that is what we are going to tell oursevles) after all of the unexpected work we put into it.

My Husband the Genius

Wade is a design major, which can mean a lot of things. He comes up with some crazy ideas, but some good ones too. My favorite was the idea to paint the closets in the guest bedroom red. The walls are a pale yellow. The bedspread in the room is a plaid that matches both…

Our First Completed Project

It wasn’t much and we actually got some help (labor is cheap!) laying the tile, but finally one thing is done. I think the fireplace looks lots better. We still have to sand down and seal the inside, but the hard part is done. Before: After:

    halls—i love the decorating with shoes—cute touch—seriously it looks great—i might have to make a trip sometime soon to see it in person

  • HollyFebruary 22, 2006 - 6:52 pm

    Freebee – I should come visit you first. You have been in your house much longer and I’ve never seen it!

Vroom Vroom

For those of you who don’t know, my dad is a race car driver (at least on the weekends). He recently had his car repainted and is very excited. I have to admit that it looks great! If you are interested, his website is RedLine Racing. This is one of his older paint jobs.
