What would Simon say?

Have you ever been in one of those relationships with a good guy -a great guy even- but you find yourself looking for something different, wanting a change, wanting to end things and just move on already?

Well, that's kinda how I'm feeling right now. No, I'm not talking about dumping the hubby, I'm talking about The Weather. If the analogy seems a little odd, well, put it down to the fact that it's October and yesterday topped out at 105 degrees. (Say what??) And just to clarify, I am not blogging from sub-Saharan Africa, but from 50 miles north of San Francisco where it oughta be about 30 degrees cooler than blast-furnace.

Sooo...summer I have to say, I love you, I really do. We had some great moments...made some great memories. But...it is time to break up! This girl is ready for Fall!

But enough about the weather. What I really want to do is tell you about this awesome hidden talent of mine. (How's that for a segue?)  This little skill is not exactly a display that would dazzle America or Sharon Osbourne (no dancing doggies here, folks.) But it's pretty cool nonetheless. Are you ready for this? My hidden talent debut?

My secret skill is...dun dun dunnnnn...

Building furniture. You know, the kind that comes in a box? Hey, don't mock! It's a really good, really handy talent. Especially when you tend to randomly pick up end-tables and bookshelves at places like Ikea and Target. (Too bad my secret talent has to reveal me as a complete furniture-cheapskate, right??)

But anyway. This weekend I was on a mission called: Getting Our Bedroom Somewhat Organized. See, while the rest of our house actually looks like it's occupied by a couple of respectable grownups, our bedroom, sadly, has not progressed past a sort of really messy, mis-matched collage dorm look. Pathetic. But, it's now a work in progress, and the first steps were a storage chest and a little thing I like to call a Get My Husband's Random Crap Off The Floor And Hold The Alarm Clock'er, which you may know as A Nightstand.


...and viola...the glorious "after."

So ladies and gentlemen, there you have it! Proof that I'm not just another working girl-slash-wannabe-blogger. I've got something. The "it" factor. 4 yeses! Or maybe I've just been watching too much X-Factor. Either way, what's your secret talent? Do tell...


  1. Wow, I'm jealous! When I bring home that said furniture I put it a room with my husband and the toolbox and wait to see which one survived! You could make some serious money doing that for people, just saying. Fall will be soon, promise. XXk

  2. Hi Jenn, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
