Oh So Lovely!

I am feeling the love in the blogger world lately. I love all the comments and the wonderful Katie at Can I just Say? gave me a lovely blog award! If you haven't checked out her blog yet you should. It is super cute and her posts are so down to earth I feel like I'm talking to a good friend when I read them! Thanks Katie!

I have been sucking a blogging lately. I think it is because I am not spending all my time behind a computer anymore and it feels so good. I still love writing, but I am just taking this time to do things that don't require sitting behind a computer.

For instance today I deep cleaned my kitchen. I swept and mopped the floors. I even pulled the refrigerator out and cleaned back there. Then I got down on my hands and knees and cleaned the base boards. I wiped down all the cabinets and counter tops and now it looks oh so lovely!

I plan on writing about my job hunt stuff later this week or maybe next week. I applied for unemployment on Monday, but I haven't heard anything yet, so I am not sure what is going on with that. I still feel financially stable but I have a feeling after the first of the month when I pay all the bills it may start getting a little more real.

Anyway, thanks for being such great bloggy friends and keep your fingers crossed that I will find the next step on my career path soon!

Good for you for getting away for from the computer for a little bit. Not sure if I could drag myself away from the computer to clean though!

Good luck with the job hunting.

Your blog IS lovely! I'm glad you're out there doing other things, I bet it feels good to clean and organize!

You are WAY more inspired than me. My apartment needs a good top to bottom scrub. Maybe this weekend...and thanks for the shout out!

I know I haven't commented much lately, but I have still been reading! I am extremely sorry to hear about your lay off, but it really sounds like you are making the best of the situation and using your time positively. In January of 2008 I lost my job when the children's toy store I worked at went out of business, and I remember how unsettling it was to be unemployed and looking for a new job. You are in my thoughts and prayers, and I will definitely keep my fingers crossed that an opportunity presents itself to you sooner rather than later. :-) If there is anything at all that you need or that I can do for you, just let me know!

By the way, what do you think of The Beach House so far? I read it awhile back, and I absolutely loved it.

Oh I love when I am able to really, really clean. For some reason I have a great satisfaction in doing so :)
