So… yeah, I have this small problem and I think every roommate I have ever had has noticed this increasingly troubling issue…
I. AM. A. BATHROOM. PRODUCT. HOARDER.
shame. What’s worse… this isn’t everything. OMG. How do I stop this problem? I told myself that I am not allowed to buy any more products until they are ALL finished. I remember having a conversation with my most recent roommate and we were talking about shampoo and how she only had 1 (ONE!!!) bottle of shampoo. Am I the only one out there that has more than one bottle of shampoo?? Is it really that strange? Ok, yes, I have… count them… 6 different kinds of shampoos (omg, that is quite excessive) but I’m sure there are more people out there with more than one bottle of shampoo. And three of those are the fancy shampoo’s… only for special occasions. It’s kinda like Monica’s towel collection, from FRIENDS, there is a fancy towel, one for guests… fancy guests… you get the picture (11 total).
Ok. That is all. I just thought I should come out and say it… and receiving the long overdue ridicule…
Today I am thankful for: CAKE being brought to work! Heck yes Lunch and Learn–who doesn’t love a good geothermal system?! And for Michael Jackson just coming on the radio, Oh Billy Jean!!
Yep, I really can’t complain. Yesterday I was sitting on the dock of the bay, watchin’ the tide roll away. Oh oh oh. Thank you Mr. Redding, I understand completely. Internet is officially being installed tomorrow and things will finally start getting settled. But tomorrow, I’ll be off to Pensacola for a meeting with clients. Get excited–there may be arguing…
Today I am thankful for: my sweet boy being in town.
Is this strange to y’all? I knew that there would be some cultural differences when I moved down to The Gulf… but I didn’t know what to think when I saw this. Maybe it’s because I’ve just never really been fishing… BUT THEY HAVE A VENDING MACHINE WITH LIVE BAIT! No, no… not ice cold beverages… LIVE BAIT. Doesn’t that seems kind of mean for the worms?
Yeah, I just don’t know…
Today I am thankful for staying with my Dad!!!
Well, what can I say? I’m just as surprised as all of you. I MOVED. I came down to the wonderful town of Fairhope a week ago today–had an extended 3-day interview. I was offered the job Friday. He needed me back Monday–he offered for me to stay in a suite that they provided–but y’all know me… there’s no pace like Allison pace. So… I had been looking at houses, found one that I loved. Called the landlord and he said that I could move in that day. So I had a less than 24 hour turn-around in Birmingham, and then me and my wonderful boy brought the essentials down on Sunday and I started work officially on Monday.
O. M. G.
I can’t believe that it has all happened so fast. I felt like I was barely in Birmingham. I didn’t get to say good bye to everyone or drag out the process of me leaving — so there was no delicious Momma Chang dinner with my closest ones around me. So for those of you who I didn’t get to hug — give yourself a little squeeze for me. I love you all. I’m only a carride away if you need anything. And everyone is welcome here–once we move the other bed in.
This is what life looks like right now. I am controlled by sticky notes and my Apple products. I can’t even say it’s a 9-5 job. It’s a 7-7 kind-of-job… and I can honestly say that I am really enjoying it. My brain no longer works after work… so we’re all struggling with my scatter-brained tendencies right now. But once everything settles, and I really get moved in, and the boy comes down — life will feel right, again. Right now, I’m somewhere in limbo. Sorry, I’ve been away, but as y’all can all see… I’ve been a little busy. But I’ll be back soon. I just need to get internet installed — and a paycheck 🙂
Today I am thankful for: you guessed it, A JOB.
