Things that are pissing me off.

Our Christmas light people.
The bitches were supposed to show up this past Tuesday (it is now Friday) to hang our Christmas lights on our house. Did they show up? No. Then they were going to come on Wednesday. Did they show up? No. Have they called? No. Assholes.

My love seat is showing me no love.
We ordered a bunch of furniture recently from Plummers. The loveseat we ordered to compliment the sectional in our living room looks ridiculous. Wrong leather sheen, wrong color, wrong everything. Now we have to figure out a way to get it back to Plummers, and pay a restocking fee. It's not their fault, they sent us what we ordered. We are just apparently design-fools. Everyone that came to our house yesterday for Thanksgiving was like, ooh, uh, yeah, no, that doesn't look right. Fuck.

I am the fattest I've ever been in my life.
Yeah, I don't really want to talk about that.

Not being techy enough to revamp my blog.
The free blogger templates provided via Google bore the hell out of me. Yet whenever I try and switch to a random template I find on the Internet, it deletes half my shit and looks stupid. Paying someone professional seems a bit silly when I have all of about 6 readers.

The never ending list of things I want done to the house before I'll invite my friends over.
It never ends. We have poured a small fortune into buying and fixing up this place, and it. never. ends. I never knew a 6-year old house in a fabulous neighborhood could need so much love. And by love, I mean people with taste and the funds to do so. I love our new patio set and fire pit, I love the way we fixed the fugly fireplace, I love the new floors on the second and third floors, I love the art we've found, I love the colors we chose for the walls. But, we still have to replace all of the door handles/knobs on the second and third floors, we still have to rip out all of the tile and appliances in the kitchen (can we start a fundraiser for that, please?), we still have to entirely design and furnish the third floor bonus room that has sat empty since the day the prior owners moved out, we still have to have new lighting installed in the living room, we still have to do so much. This pisses me off so much because I am a turn-key kind of girl. I do not enjoy this shit.

Oh, but I love my friends and family and am thankful we have jobs and money and our lives don't suck. Or something like that, I think.

Ditto #3 and #4 to a lesser extent (a few pounds short of my heaviest, and I have more than 6 readers).

Wow, I was going to say I really like the new blog look!

Cheer up doll. You have so much to be thankful for!

I really want to see more pics of the new and improved house, including the patio furniture you chose and all that! It's a really irritating process to go through making a house your home, but I'm sure it's going to be absolutely gorgeous.

Ooh I like the new layout! And I think the house looks great already, but then again I've had paint cans in my garage for a year now. We can start the new year off right by walking 2x a week with weights if you'd like too. And I think you have way more than 6 readers.

6th reader checking in :) We've moved back here for almost 6 months already and still haven't finished painting, so don't feel bad. I too am chubby, but let's not talk about that anymore.

Aha! You have *seven* readers. I'm decorating dumb too, except I don't have a house. Sad face.

#8 checking in. ;)

I've resolved to get back to counting calories religiously after the new year. So yeah, I feel ya on that front.

Fixing up a house is always a pain in the ass, but I know it's going to look beautiful when you guys are done with it. Progress pics?
