Let the rain fall…

Let the rain fall

I love a good rain storm, especially in the summer time. There’s something incredibly beautiful and awe-inspiring about it all.

Storms always bring out a bit of nostalgia in me as I look back to my childhood, standing on the deck with my parents and watching a storm roll in over the lake. Even if it was long past bedtime, we’d throw on yellow slickers and stand outside until the rain reached us. Maybe someday I’ll get the chance to pass on that tradition.

It’s been relatively cool here the last couple of days so I’m getting in all the pics I can.  It’s nice to be able to walk into the office and not instantly break out into a sweat. It’s going to get back up into the 90’s again later this week but I’ll be on vacation so it doesn’t matter! Wheee! Sorry. Spazz moment over.

I was feeling super cute after the last picture I did as a dolly and I don’t normally do the cutesy thing so I figured one more wouldn’t hurt. I did have to inject a little bit of my typical style into it though giving me this cute kind of punk-rock doll. I’m enjoying this look so I may stay doll for a little bit longer but then again, I may change back to my regular look tomorrow.

Funny story. I bought the doll key from Hopscotch thinking it was just a normally scripted key but oops it’s RLV enabled. After admitting my blunder to my hubby followed by an explanation of what RLV is, he has a sudden renewed interest in SL. LOL. Go figure. I expect the next few weeks to be interesting, to say the least.

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here

 

This place.

This godforsaken town.

Outsiders don’t get it. They never will. Everyone wants to visit but nobody wants to stay. And while it seems lovely and idyllic on the outside, the truth is that there’s little to offer those of us who weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. It’s a lifelong sentence of drudgery and mediocrity. The rich drink their champagne and party while the blue collar families slowly drown. Efforts to revive the city have done little to boost the economy and so we are left waiting, wanting more. Wishing, for the wind to sweep us away to anywhere but here…

Fix This Mess

Fix This Mess

The husband and I are in the middle of fixing up our house. We purchased with the belief that it only needed cosmetic repairs – taking down the old wallpaper and wood paneling, replacing switch and outlet covers, fresh coat of paint, etc. 3 years later, we’re elbow-deep in a complete overhaul, our latest project being new floors and ceiling for the family & rec room.

A close RL friend and I decided to document our amusing and painful home restoration experiences. (It’s too comical, horrible, and awkward not too.) Please pardon the shameless self-promotion but if you’re so inclined, you can read more about our home woes here.
