Oh So True

I'm sure you guys have all heard the song What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger) by Kelly Clarkson, right? No? I recommend you do if you haven't. I'm not usually a Kelly Clarkson fan, but this part of this song has been stuck in my head for weeks:

You think you've got the best of me
Think you've had enough the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I'll come running back
Baby, you don't know me, 'cause you're dead wrong

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes you fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

Yeah. That's how I have been feeling for months. Sometimes it takes being hurt to realize how strong you are. Sometimes it takes a lot to make you able to fight back...but when you finally start to put the pieces back together? There's no feeling like it in the world.

The Stupidest Way To Break Your Wrist

So the day after I started this brand new blog I thought it would be a really awesome idea to see what would happen if I broke my wrist. You know what happens? You can't type. Know what happens if you can't type and your job is to type? Nothing good...

Since everyone has asked what happened, here it is. Spencer was really sick. He threw up on everything. I washed approximately 512 loads of laundry that day. I sat one of the baskets inside the door to my bedroom and forgot it was there, so I never put it away. I was exhausted and went to walk to my bed. I thought, well I know where my bed is and I just want to climb in and fall asleep immediately, so I won't turn the light on. That was a poor decision. In a split second, mid-yawn, I went from walking to bed to trying to catch myself as I fell. Had I not tried to catch myself I would have had a pretty bad headache but probably no damage. I did, though. The palm of my hand landed on the rug by my bed. The rug slid across the hardwood floor. The impact fractured my wrist. The sliding sprained my elbow. That is why I've been notably absent since starting the new blog. This hurts. Typing really hurts.

Did I mention that I only get paid if I type? *sigh*

BUT the good news is that I am finally getting a car either tonight or tomorrow afternoon. Now I just have to figure out how to drive and not scream in pain and I'm good to go!

Quick, Someone Sing a Song!

Yesterday Spencer saw the trailer for Madagascar 3. If you haven't seen it, I will put it here for you.

Ok. The song at the end? Spencer has been singing that for a full 24 hours now. Made me think about all of those songs that just won't get out of your head once they get in....So I found a previously compiled list (luckily enough from one of the companies I work for! Haha). What would you guys add to this?

Simply Starting Over

For almost 3 years now I have been rebuilding my life. When I recently realized that none of my posts from my other blog really related to relationships anymore, I also realized it was time to move on. Time to truly start over. I accomplished what I needed to with that blog. Now it's time for some fun.

Some of you may remember my brief Blogger encounter last year. Yes, I wanted to show you all the crafty things I was doing, but I barely had time for one blog, let alone two. This one will show you some of the new things I've been doing. Like making flowers and putting them on lamps:
...and making things to hang on my boring bedroom walls:
But the best part about this new blog is that in addition to that stuff, you will get to see the fun stuff:
as well as the crazy moments in our lives:

Big things are happening here. I can't wait to share them all with you!
