These days I have had off in August have been much quieter than the days I had off in July. It has been more of a lazy time to relax, rather than days filled with summer adventures. I guess this is ok. Good in its own way. Except that summer is almost over and I have this racing feeling that I need to be “do-ing” things, fitting it all in, whatever it is.

Chris and I reconnected on Monday night and we talked about communicating, and I think we cleared things up for going forward. His take, “I was giving you space to do what you needed to do with work.” My take, “you didn’t care enough to call.” See – the difference between men and woman? Wednesday we had a great afternoon together. We went to play pool and then went to Summer Shack for dinner.

I have been feeling a little blue lately. Nothing tragic, just seem to be having a bit of trouble bouncing back from the intensity of work the last month and feeling a little blah.

Had a great day today with mom. I have been thinking that I want to update my bedroom and finally get a non-hand-me-down bedroom set. You know step it up to being an adult, since I am turning 40 in 9 weeks.

We went to Jordan’s just to browse and I ended up loving a dining room set and a bedroom set. Showing some restraint, I did get just the bedroom set. A long, low bureau, a chest of drawers and a nightstand in a cherry finish. Scheduled to be delievered in 7-10 weeks. Apparently it is a popular set.

Aside from it’s look what I liked most about it was the company, that it is made in America, and it feels solid. I was impressed. So many of the sets we looked at just felt hollow, and this one had a much more substantial feel to it. Since it is Tax-Free weekend in Massachusetts this week I was able to save $160.

I’m looking for a new comforter set and print for over the bed too. Right now this one is the front runner.
