a neutral day

the good news:
i forgot that i'd already paid last month's rent with my initial deposit, so the phone call from the management company notifying me that i needed to come pick up my check was like christmas morning.

the bad news:
somehow our electric bill ended up being 174.23 for july. what. the. heck.
***
the good news:
i am more or less obsessed with lunabars. yes, the "nutritional bar for women!" i am so ashamed of my habit. but they are delicious. eating a chocolate dipped coconut one will turn your day around. i know from experience.

the bad news:
see "good news"
****
the good news:
i had a wedding epiphany today. i went to a reception for a friend of a friend and maaaaaaan i just want to press fast forward to my own wedding, rewind back to this reception, and then press play.  it was stylish and simple. you know the wedding is good when you can't find a single thing to make fun of in the engagement pictures.

the bad news:

i am gonna need a whole lot of mason jars. and key lime pie cheesecake. and some poor fool crazy enough to marry me.
***
the good news:
i am hardcore working full time until school starts. and making mental lists of all the items i want to buy on my mental back to school shopping list.
like these. drool.

the bad news:
dr. cornish doesn't have any openings for well child checks until september 23rd, so don't even think about calling and trying to weasel your three children in to get their kindergarten immunizations today. (because they're triplets, obviously)
***
the good news:
i finally got my fall schedule all ironed out!

the bad news:
look at the size of this book why don't you. it weighs 9.6 pounds. i checked. the bad news isn't so much that i have to take art history as that i fear that i might have to cart this thing up to campus. (or is that good news? i can imagine some pretty good skull crushers or bicep curls in between classes might come from that beaut)
***
my life is neutral.
