I screamed like a girl!

But, that's ok, because I am a girl. I walked to the backdoor of my house last night to let my dog in... when I went to put my hand on the door handle I noticed that something on the textured wall seemed... off. So, being the inquisitive one that I am I leaned in to get a closer look and found myself face to face with a lizard. I calmly turned around and ran to the kitchen and updated my facebook status to "OMG there is a lizard in my house. WTF" Now that the important part was out of the way I called my husband and begged him to come straight home from the gym and save me from the lizard. He ran home and goes into the living room to scope things out... he wasn't impressed.

"Really, D. You called me home to deal with a 3 inch long lizard?"

*hangs head in mock shame* "well, I wasn't going to touch it"

15 minutes and several panicky jumps from Dh later the lizard is outside and I am thoroughly traumatized. 10 year old me would have punched me in the face for my behavior.

The glass might just be half-full

Despite the things that are making me sad right now, I am trying to look on the bright side (this is new for me.) I have more time for reading now, after the kids go to bed it's usually just me and I get to read complete sentences without being interrupted. It's craziness. I'm currently reading a Jodi Picoult Novel called "Plain Truth" or "The Plain Truth." I really enjoy her writing although there has been the occasional book that I couldn't get through. I have another one of her books on my "to read" shelf that I just don't think I can read. That one is called "Handle with Care" and it just breaks my heart. I've also started watching Grey's Anatomy. As usual I'm tardy for the party and I'm only on season 3 while the rest of the U.S. is on season 8 or 9.

With all of this new found free time I've decided to start sewing again. I'm not very good, but I think I have enough fabric to at least practice for awhile. I would love to be able to make my own dress one day, especially since I can't seem to find the one I really want. *if you happen to know where I can get a blue polka dotted white dress with a halter style neckline please let me know.*

I guess I'm done blabbing for now. Have a great day, people.
