play by play.

Today was a good day. A busy day, but good. I am pretty thankful tomorrow is Friday so I can get a chance to exhale and catch up on some sleep. CMA Festival (Fan Fair) is going on downtown (and Bonnaroo over in Manchester, TN) so I will probably stay away from there. June and July are both pretty packed for me. Whatever happened to summer vacation? Oh yeah, adulthood happened. Summer? What's that?

  • 5:10 a.m.: Wake up.
  • 6:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.: Work. I was supposed to have two training meetings today but they were both canceled due to projector issues. I enjoy learning new things, but I can't say I was too upset about not having to go to meetings.
  • 11:15 a.m.: Lunch with three interns, Jennifer, and Megan.
  • 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.: Break. I sat in my office and worked on my Bible study. And ate green beans. Random, but I knew I wouldn't get home until after 6, and I didn't want to be starving because when I'm tired and hungry, I get pretty cranky.
  • 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.: NL team meeting. Bonus: Cheryl brought cookies.
  • 6:30 p.m.: Home to change and make a grocery list ... I already made one, but it is MIA.
  • 7:00 - 7:30 p.m.: Grocery shopping at Kroger. I budget $120 for food every month, but tonight I made my first June trip and spent $48; I'm pretty sure that can last me through the end of the month, though I might need more milk. My mom sends me coupons (thanks, Mom!) so I try to be thrifty. I recently bought laundry detergent, but Kroger had all® detergent for 2.99 on sale this week, and I had a $2 off coupon for the Oxi-Active™ kind. So I walked out of there with quality detergent for 99 cents. Winner!
  • 7:30 - 7:45 p.m.: Do dishes, water gerber daisies (which now have five flowers blooming!), vacuum kitchen, change Miles' litter, clean bathroom sink and mirror.
  • 7:45 - 7:55 p.m.: Shower.
  • 8:00 - 9:00 p.m.: Read mail, blog, go to sleep.
Coming up:
Friday: Artist interview. I'll blog on that tomorrow.
Saturday: FYK Lawn Party. I'm trying not to psyche myself out by thinking I'll be the only single homeowner there, but there's a drawing for a free year of yard service and heaven knows I have some major weed issues.
Sunday: Church. Nothing else! Hallelujah for the sabbath.

It is well,


  1. I've just relocated to the area of high school days from Dyersburg, TN. Thankfully before the flooding. I was just curious how things are healing around the Nashville area?
    Love your blog, by the way! Neat style of writing & the layout is adorable. :)
    God Bless! XO!

  2. Thanks! Nashville feels like it is getting back to "normal" but I know for people who lost everything, normal is still a long ways off. Still plenty in need of clean-up and skilled laborers. People here are great at helping though. We are Nashville.

  3. I just want to commend you on a fabulous grocery budget! But look out once you get married, cause things change! I think my hubs and I spend $120 in a week on food. Yipes!
