Why Can't They Make What's In My Head??

So, what exactly am I talking about? Well, it has been about 3 1/2 years since we built our house and our rugs are starting to look a bit worn out, and I'm sick of the colors in my bedroom, etc......

I get bored easily ( so sue me) .......I want new rugs ( and I want them cheap), a tall order it seems.I also want new bedding and a new color on the bedroom walls.  I need 2 rugs and I can envision them in my head......I absolutely hate when I do this and you would think that I would learn!!  I always envision exactly how I want a room to look and then I go and try to find the stuff to put in it and it is always a FAIL!! I must have a vivid imagination, or maybe this is a sign that I should become a designer, as no one else designs what I want, and if they do, I cannot afford it!!

So, I continue to search the WWW for exactly what I've conjured up in this crazy head of mine, and still no luck....probably because of my need to save big and get a huge bargain on everything I buy!!!

Oh, well, it keeps me busy! I need another thing to keep me busy, like I need another hole in my head!

No what else keeps me busy???.................................................................................

And you thought I wasn't going to talk about running!?!

Ha! I know it is only 2.1 miles, but it is .1 miles more than the day before and a whole 31 sec faster per mile!! I am really trying to build up slowly and get a good base and stay injury free! I'll pprobably stick with 2 - 2.5 miles for another week or two and then try 3 miles.....although I am a bit impatient , so we will see. I would love to run a 5 K in October....There, I said it, that is my small goal ...........that I have been reluctant to say out loud for fear of failure, but I think I can do it!!!

Do you guys envision things in your head and get disappointed when you can't find them?? Or am I the only one???
Happy Running,


  1. I totally get ticked when I can't find things I imagine. If I do find them, they are like a bjillion dollars more than I want to spend! This is usually the case with organizational products. In theory, they work great, in use they look clunky. It's a bummer! :D

    Way to go w/ the 2.1!

  2. I tagged you for an award! http://trackcoach-tressaabe11.blogspot.com/ And great job on your run!
