Odds & Ends

August 9, 2011

1.  My husband and I just started watching Breaking Bad (AMC) and we are hooked.  I think I actually like it better than this season's True Blood.

2.  Item 1 has resulted in getting little done around the house.  We still have two more seasons to get through people!

3.  In an attempt to reorganize my craft room (and hopefully sew more), I ordered these boards after seeing Maggie's organized fabric yardage:

I am a little anxious to get this room organized because I am constantly unable to find items I need.  It is seriously a disaster area, my husband can (and will) attest to this.  Maybe I'll post some pre-organization pictures, *maybe*.

4.  We had a bit of a scare with the Oso dog.  He has been drinking a ton of water lately, and last week he started waking us up in the middle of the night (whining) because he wants water.  The vet sounded really certain that the excessive water drinking was related to either kidney problems or diabetes.  However, we found out yesterday that the blood work they ran looks really good.  So for now, they are going to treat him for a UTI and see how he responds.

5.  The heat here is pretty unbearable.  I find myself so exhausted after the drive home from work (it's only 30 minutes in an air-conditioned car, but the sun takes every ounce of energy out of me).  We spend most of our time inside and I feel like I'm getting cabin fever.  This past weekend we installed window tint on the windows in our kitchen (they face west and are BRUTAL in the afternoon).  I wish we would have thought to do this sooner because it is amazing.  Our kitchen is no longer a sauna after 3 p.m. :)  I may actually be motivated enough to cook dinner now.

My husband and I love Breaking Bad! He got the DVDs from a co-worker and we went through all of the seasons pretty quickly. The new season is off to an interesting start.

I am glad Oso is ok!

I hope your pup gets better soon. E and I got into breaking bad a few months ago - what a crazy, addicting show!

I'm desperate for some of that window tint in our kitchen! The afternoon sun hits it dead on and there are a TON of windows in there!

We love Breaking Bad so much!!! I always get excited when I see someone else shares the love. And it just gets better as the seasons go on.

I never thought of storing fabric vertically, just may have to steal that idea someday. And hugs to your pup!

PQ is pretty obsessed with breaking bad as well. Sadly, I am a delicate little flower and can only bad reality tv and cheesy sitcoms.

I sooooo agree on the weather/heat here. It truly is unbearable and leaves me wondering why we don't get HEAT days like they get snow days up north, etc. Ugh.

Oh! I hope your pup is ok. Any little ailment with our pups send me into hysterics. I just wish they could talk and tell me what's wrong. Hopefully he's feeling better soon!
