Saturday Randoms

Do you ever have those days when you look in the fridge and absolutley nothing looks good? I'm having one of those days today.

It's been that kind of day though. I tried tanning and it decided to storm. I tried to hang pictures and my first attempt it was obvious I was way off center. Yeah...last time I try to eyeball it first. After hanging said pictures I came to the conclusion our apartment has to be the cheapest made apartment EVER. I mean, I've lived in cheap apartments, but this one takes the cake. For one, I guess Italian landlords like to use very and I mean very cheap paint. That stuff flakes off like you wouldn't believe! A few hits from my trusty hammer and nail and it was like a snowstorm. It doesn't look bad if you just don't look behind the picture on the wall. It's going to look like crap when we move out of there though.

My agenda for the rest of the day? Run at the gym, stop by and get a few must-have things from the commissary, maybe go downstairs and sift through my Christmas things. Nothing puts me in a good mood like looking at my Christmas decorations/ornaments. Oh and a note about our downstairs storage area? It's damp. As in so damp that a few wooden tables we put down there and my suitcases were sporting mold. Uh...ew! Thank god almost everything else is in Rubbermaid storage containers and spared that.

I wish I could tell my February self to under no circumstances take this apartment. Ah well...all part of the experience I suppose.

Nothing in my fridge has looked good all week, practically. It's pretty disappointing, really.

Uh oh! Mold is not good! I hope you can get it off your things and they'll still be usable!

You might try some Damp Rid close to the things not in tubs. They have large buckets of it and small packets for containers and closets. HTH!

Christmas stuff does that for me, too! I've got a special Christmas mix section on my iTunes just for days like that!

I'm glad I'm not the only one here! The other day I was wishing it was the end of November so we could put out our Christmas stuff!

Ha! I didn't think anyone else would catch that. It's my favorite Disney (park) song. In fact, in honor of the trip, it's now my ringtone.
