The state of my inbox...

is very similar to the state of my life right now...out of control. I have a ton of unread messages, a ton of messages I need to reply to, and even more that I need to put in a folder to get out of my inbox. My life is out of control too. I have no real home routine to speak of. I have yet to find all of my clothes since the move (maybe they're packed somewhere with my brain!). And we still haven't gotten into a good cooking rhythm. Finding normal life is taking a lot longer than I thought it would.

While all this unsettledness is frustrating, we have a lot of things to be excited about. The mirror I got at market finally came in today. I can't wait to hang it! Since it weighs about a million pounds, though, we're going to have to be careful how we hang it. I think we'll be consulting Cole's dad about that one. Here's the mirror:

I also ordered two lamps, but they haven't come yet. Here is a bad picture of them:

Our rug came in today too. We got it where we want it, but I can't get a good picture of it since the mirror is laying all over it. I'll try to post one soon though.

I went to market with Cole's mom and sister-in-law about two weeks ago. It was amazing. The prices were unbelievable. They got a dresser for us a couple of years ago. We saw it in a store in Birmingham for twice what we paid for it. I love getting a deal.

In other news, work is going pretty well so far. It's weird starting a new job, but I like the work. Cole has been studying for the bar, and I think he feels pretty good about it. He leaves for Montgomery on Sunday and will be there until Wednesday. He will be testing half of Monday and all day Tuesday and Wednesday. I don't think he's nervous that he will fail or anything; I think he's just dreading having to take it. He starts work August 17, and I can't wait. I think it will bring a sense of routine to our lives that I so desperately want.

For now, I guess I'll just have to learn to live with craziness. It could be worse.
