Alright, so the last two weeks have been absolutely insane in both Beth’s and my life butwe have not forgotten about the blog one bit. I figured I would pop in to at least give some sort of a post and who knows, this one might be the one I have the most fun writing because I’m just going to cover many different topics and ask for “group” participation (that’s from you readers out there).
My first random thought this last week was when I was looking at my calendar and Vikings games started showing up for pre-season football…. UGH! (I don’t really like football, I just like that I get to eat junk food all season and no one judges me and then I get to get crazy for the Super Bowl). I am not dissing football in any way, I respect the sport and for the most part the players… but what about Hockey…. why do we have to wait so much longer for hockey to start? I mean really though… You know, I never really cared about ANY sport until I started dating my husband, he’s the one who did this to me. But come hockey season, there may be a post about our room in the house that is dedicated to WILD hockey! 😉
My second random thought was if I had to choose one project to do on our new house, what it would be. I’ve been keeping a list in my head of things that I want to do over the course of home ownership to our new house but they are all of course pricey and time consuming. I have narrowed it down to my top 3 fixer-upper projects… and they are as follows: 1. replace our entire yard, because it is full of weeds and prickly things that make it so that I cannot enjoy sitting, laying or walking around barefoot in my yard (that also includes fixing our fence that got blown over from the wind in a storm 2 weeks after we bought our house). 2. I would like to hire someone to either come repaint all the ceilings in our house or to remove the nasty popcorn ceilings all together (and repaint). 3. Lastly, I want to buy some supplies and trim down our trees and remove some bushes that are near the front of the house. We got most of those nasty bushes out but they are going to grow back because that’s how they are 😦 After that is done, I wanna find a way to fill in the area that was behind them and underneath them because there is exposed spotsunder the kitchen which is not damaging to our house at all but just looks weird.
The last thoughts that have been on my mind this week are those of politics. I majored in political science (which my co-blogger always makes fun of me for), but I loved it. If I had to go back and do it again, I would have probably picked a different college to do politics/criminal justice as a double major. But alas, Concordia College at Moorhead does not have a criminal justice program so I was stuck with what I could get which was political science. In my years at Concordia, and certainly my few years since, I have grown to view politics in a different light. I am not your typical American voter for my age. I defy almost all of the odds and I think there are a lot of us out there who are just too afraid to speak up. I am a middle class, white, 24 year old female CONSERVATIVE Republican. I believe in the right of free speech, the right to bear arms and in the pro-life movement. That is not to say that I do not see the side of the opposite belief system. That’s just a small other tidbit about me that probably won’t come up often but politics is a great deal of my life.
Anyway, time for the participation part of the post!
I’m going to list 3 things and I want your comments to be suggestions for what I should look into. I’ve been super bored lately and wanting to expand my horizons in terms of these three topics and well let’s face it… my husband is getting irritated with me playing the same things over and over again ;). Here goes:
- Music. Comment bands and/or songs that I can add to my playlist.
- Movies and television shows. I am an avid tv watcher so bring it on! I will even take youtube video suggestions (Beth, this one’s for you so that I finally understand your jokes).
- Books. I love reading and have a whole Kindle full of books but want some suggestions from the readers of our blog.
Thanks in advance for participating and please comment and share with your friends so that they can have fun participating too!
Thank you for reading.
