Sitting here watching "Deep Blue Sea" because I need a break.  The last time I watched this movie was definitely before my Samuel Jackson crush... It was a nice surprise to discover that he is in this movie.  Just a little nervous that he'll be eaten because I sort of remember the ending.  I have a friend who briefly met the man when she was young, and I will always be super jealous of that.  

Enough of my Samuel yapping!(even though all his movies are awesome)!! Between work, school and house work I'm feeling too torn and exhausted.  Not meaning to sound all whining... just saying.  

The weekend was full of things to be done: school reading, cleaning, scrubbing clean & building the old kitchen table, hosting guests, folding two weeks worth of laundry, painting, raking & landscaping the front yard and a baby shower. Weekends never seem to be long enough. Or maybe now, with three days off, it will be enough?!

My parents gave Chris and I the old family table which was great of them.  While cleaning it, I see that my little sister vandalized underneath with spelling her name:


You suck Sarah!

If you look hard enough at the picture on the left, the proof is there. 

One thing I realized was that as kids, we totally damaged the table with stains and scratches. 

The table fills of dinning room nicely.  It's a banana wood but made in Canada kind of table.  Eventually we will strip, refinish and stain it.  But that kind of DIY project can wait. 

We are thinking of having a comfy bench along the partial wall which looks down into another room. Another project that will come in time. 

OH MY GOD!  SAMUEL DIES IN THE MIDDLE OF ONE OF HIS MONOLOGUE RANTS!!!! Not fair.  There's like an hour left and the sharks are just starting their feast.  

Thinking about my full week ahead makes me stressed.  I hate this constant feeling of stress and exhaustion.  I know that there are things in my life that I will have to cut down on if to stay functionally sane.  I always tell other people to do what will make them happy and to take care of themselves... but I'm such a hypocrite. 

No point in this movie anymore so the plan: eat, nap then get back to the studying/student groove.  Urg <3

I know what you mean about looking at the week ahead and feeling stressed and overwhelmed. My only piece of advice is to take it one day at a time and not look at the daunting big picture. Hope your week turns out to be not so bad <3

ha ha Sarah I did the same thing to my moms black sewing machine not too sure why I would vandalize and put my name on my handywork.... I guess the tradition was handed down. Sorry Ash but you should keep that writing underneath memories :) love you mom

Oh you are beautiful, you can get away with a brown paper bag at the Ottawa Fashion Week and still stand out!

Though, I think we should take out the most fantastic outfit you have in your closet and put that on!

aliciafashionista So true, I do have to just tackle things one at a time, instead of getting overwhelmed. Thanks :)

Mom, sorry but I cleaned off most of the stains and vandalism.

Pop Champagne Thanks :) I think it's nice too, meeting other Ottawa bloggers.

20 York Street Thanks ML xo You're too sweet. I will try to pull out a fantastic outfit from of my outdated wardrobe. Maybe browsing some of the designers sites again will give me some inspiration.
