Please excuse my last post. It was just one of those days and I felt like being dramatic about it, apparently blogging was my escape. This post I decided to do the opposite as my last and write a list of a few things I am grateful for, especially things I noticed this week.

  • THE LOVELY SUMMER WEATHER!!!! Words cannot describe how much I am adoring this weather. This week I went on a bike ride, had a campfire, went on multiple walks, had picnics, and just enjoyed the being outside.
  • My parents are amazing. You never really realize how much they do for you until you move away. I took my dad's car to Provo the other day, came back and my dad fixed my car. He didn't even flaunt about it either. I noticed when I drove in it the next time. My parents are not controlling, nor pushy, but I love how my dad still gets worried when I'm out late {probably should work on getting in earlier :/....}.
  • I love that my mom taught is teaching me to sew. She helped me fix two coworkers dresses this week.
  • I love my home ward. It is so awesome to come back after being away for a while and catching up with old leaders and old friends. Love them :)
  • I am grateful for living in a home with endless amounts of crafting supplies. This week I made some earrings out of fabric, tinsel, and beads. All freeeeeee :) (for me at least..)

I hate starting every post with a "ah! It's been so long since I last posted! I promise I am going to blog more, blah, blah, blah". So I'm not going to. Instead I am going to blog about today. Because it would be impossible to try and recap the last...oh four months or so :)

So you see. Today started out great. Got to sleep in my parents bed... And then it turned to the dark side. And I am using my blog as a venting place so if you don't want to hear me vent you can stop reading....NOW. 

Today I did many things. First I got in a big honkin' fight with my older sister about stupid things that shouldn't matter. Minutes later I found out I still HAVE NOT been placed for a job in London (mind you I am leaving in three weeks and still have no idea where I am going. Fabulous).  Then I spent the first hour of work on the phone because of above said things, and therefore, it was at the forefront of my mind and I was basically on the verge of tears all day at work. Once again, fabulous. Don't worry there is more to my pathetic pity-me-day...then I got a text saying the person who was taking over my housing contract backed out. Love my life. Last but not least, as I was just about to leave to head down to go see a cute boyyyy in P-town my padre calls and asks if I would stay home to play chauffeur for my little sister.

...all of these items probably should not make me cry, lay on the couch, eat chocolate, and vegetate the rest of the night. But they did. And here I am blogging about my pathetic life. 

 Please tell me I am not the only one with these kinds of days.

(I probably should add that Aunt Flow is in town for a few days. I think some of you might have noticed she was visiting) :)
