This weekend was nice enough to share with everyone 🙂
I’ve had a slight bit of GOOD change this past week. About a week ago, I bought a metal filing cabinet from my boss. It is a great cabinet, but I didn’t like the color, which was a drab gray. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was a good quality, probably once very expensive filing cabinet and the handles on it actually look contemporary, so I knew I could work with it. I was really excited when she said she was going to sell these for only $50 because I have been in the market for a metal filing cabinet for the past year. With everything going electronic, at home and in my office (why she is getting rid of them), you might wonder why I would buy one. Well, my boyfriend is a doctoral student now and he keeps a LOT of paper (e.g. articles, assignments). I feel sometimes like our house is nothing but binders and paper and folders and honestly, I can’t handle it anymore. I hate the sight of paper. I hate the texture of paper. Most of all, I simply hate how much paper is in my home. Ergo, I bought a filing cabinet just for him 🙂
We decided to paint it black because I thought it would go nice with most of my things. I have the bad habit of buying only black and white furnishings. I never really noticed that until some friends came over and mentioned it. Anyway, here is the before picture:
Here is the after pictures (1. before, 2. after):
As of right now, it’s still drying, so I haven’t put it back together yet, but I still wanted to share our hard work 🙂
The weather was phenomenally beautiful this weekend, something you all know that I have been waiting on for quite some time. The change is good and my spirits seem to be much more uplifted these past few days. The first photo of the flowers is, admittedly, not a recent photo, but I thought pretty to share. I have to admit this because you can see that these are clearly not fresh blooms. Some of them are actually dead it appears 🙂 I have yet to actually see many flowers though.
The weekend wasn’t so great when I found out that my grandfather had a heart attack. I always have a feeling when something like this happens in my family as soon as I see that it’s my mom or dad calling out of the blue. I knew right away when my mom sent me a text to call her. This just isn’t like her, so I knew something had to have happened. This kind of change is what makes me realize I’m no longer a kid anymore.
A couple of weeks ago, my nephew had his third birthday party and my mom, dad, brother, sister, and maternal grandparents were there. It wasn’t until that moment of us all in one place that I realized just how old we all are. I must look older too, but just don’t realize it. Time has flown by and is taking us all with it. It made me see how I should appreciate the people I have in my life before I don’t have them anymore.
Times indeed have changed.
