You Know You’re Sick When…

by Courtney on January 20, 2011

Darn this darn cold! Annoyed 

Right now, my nose is looking and feeling a whole lot like this:


I know, I know…it’s just a cold. But I just needed to take my five seconds to complain about it.

Ok, I’m good. Winking smile

So maybe I’ll blame it on the cold, but I actually did not take one photo of food yesterday. You really wouldn’t have been interested in anything I ate anyways, since I tend to make quite boring food choices when I’m not feeling well (helloooo abundance of Kashi crackers!).

BUT, I will fill ya’ll in on a couple highlights of my day, since I’m fun like that…

  • Started off my work day with a 2-Hour Delay…which only made me realize that I could really get used to starting every day at 10:30.
  • I used a whole lot of tissues (hence the photo above)
  • Was going to take a rest day from exercise, but decided a little yoga wouldn’t hurt – I did some Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown, and I surely didn’t regret it.
  • Enjoyed reading all of your entries into my GiveawayHave you entered yet???
  • Jay came home from work to tell me that we had plans to meet up with our friends Josh and Erika for dinner. Luckily, my nose wasn’t dependent on tissues at this point…
  • We spent 3 hours chatting at dinner! We went to a local Italian restaurant, and believe it or not, I ordered minestrone soup and salad. At an Italian restaurant…I’m most definitely sick.
  • However, I then proceeded to dominate the enormous piece of carrot cake that Jay and I got to share. That cake made all seem right in the world. Smile
  • I did a little more organizing in the kitchen(!!!)…


  • I took a whole lot of this…


And…Ohhhh, what’s that you say?? Did you happen to notice something different?

Yes, yes you did!

We got our countertops in!!!!!!!


I’m only giving you all a sneak peek for now though. Winking smile

As soon as we get the last few things in (aka, a SINK!) then I’ll be sure to do the “Big Reveal.” I’m so excited though…it’s REALLY coming along!!

Aaaaand now I’m off to work…unfortunately not at 10:30.

Question for the Day:

What time do you start your work/school day? What time do you finish?

I teach and we start at 8:30 and end at 3:30….I was hoping for a delay today but no such luck I get to drive to work on very icy roads!


4 Ellie January 20, 2011 at 8:50 am

Oh I’m in school so my work day starts when class starts. It used to start at 8:00 every morning but this semester I was able to push it back to 9 three days a week and 9:30 two days. I know 8 o’clock classes are not the end of the world, but I do really enjoy having a little extra time

Usually my day starts at 5:30 AM and ends between 8:00 – 10:00 PM. Working two jobs + grad school = nasty schedule :) Your countertops look great! Feel better soon!

Courtney I love your wine rack! I want one just like it!!

My day usually starts at 6:30 (I hop on the train for work at 7) and usually get home at 7. Makes for a long day but I like my job and the train gives me good time to read Sweet Tooth Sweet Life and think of my post for the evening.

Feel better soon!!

Every time you show pictures of the new kitchen I love it more and more! The wine glasses look so cool :) My work/school start time varies every single day. Although my class schedule doesn’t change, my work schedule does. I can have class start at 8:45AM or 5:45PM, but if I have to work, sometimes I have to get up earlier. *sigh*

I hope you feel better soon, colds are the absolute worst!

I want a wine rack, and I have the perfect spot for one. Need to get my handy boyfriend to do it.

I work 8 – 5:30 (with 2 or so hours in traffic), to get a half day on Friday.

22 Katie G. January 20, 2011 at 2:24 pm

Feel better!

I wake up at 5:45am, leave the house at 6am, arrive at the gym at 7am (near my office), workout, shower, and arrive at work at 9am. I get off at 6pm and have an hour commute home so I usually get home around 7pm. If any errand are involved, 8pm…..weekdays are long days! I sleep in a bit later and slow down on the weekends so I don’t go crazy, haha.
