On [not] being content

Just browse through my internet search history and all of the signs are there. One minute it's trips to St Lucia, the next minute it's apartments for rent in California, the very next minute it's reading about adoption agencies, right after that is looking at convertibles for sale, and then to finalize my whole five minutes of internet time I land on condos for sale in Siesta Key, Florida. 

Clearly I am either really confused or really un-content. You know when you get in those moods where you are just ready for some type of change that will bring excitement to your life for a solid 24 hours? That's me right now. I don't know if I love it or hate it when I get in these moods. I blame it on the change of the season. For some reason with every change of something, I feel the need for a personal change of something. This would be awesome if I would stop channeling those changes through wanting expensive vacations, homes, kids, or cars, but rather a slight attitude change where I focus on all that I am already grateful for and blah blah blah. 

I'm not sure where I was going with this post, especially since I am leading you all into an opportunity to become excited about the fact of winning $150 bones + other awesome prizes which will bring a material sense of change into your life, but whatever. I'm just going to embrace it today. Tomorrow however, tomorrow I will be grateful. Right after I hit up Sam's Club for endless samples and buying all of the bulk things that I don't need. 

Cheers to a week ahead of less confusing (and expensive) internet search history.

  3. I could have wrote this entry myself! Not the specifics, but I catch myself doing the same thing so often-- the internet makes it so easy to get sidetracked and before you know it you're googling vacation destinations, houses, new cities, etc! If I could do anything right now it would definitely be travel somewhere warm & sunny :)

  18. I totally know you feel! We thought that living somewhere else other than southern California would be better for us, because it's so freaking expensive here, but we've come to the conclusion, that you just can't get the environment or experiences that we have so close to us down here, anywhere else! So we're going to stay here, that is unless my husband's job takes us elsewhere!:)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
