Here's a little something

So instead of showering right away today because of lack of hot water, I hopped on the internet and found this on one of my friends from childhood's facebook wall and decided I should share it. I like it a whole lot and I hope it will brighten your day too!

Anyway... Have a great day, all!
love, ellen

Good Sunday To All

Hey, Guys! It's kinda been a while since I posted anything... sorry... but I have a good explanation! I've been writing a sitcom, lately, that I think is pretty funny. It's for my creative writing class but I'm also possibly sending it in to a real famous director who is a friend of a friend. I'm trying not to get my hopes up but being a tv writer like my hero, Tina Fey, would be AWESOME. Also, since Sean's a writer, he could do it with me! It would be a dream seriously. I'm not going to give anything away from it just yet besides that it's about my job, essentially, at the coffee shop and it's going to be hilarious.

Another reason is because we changed our whole house around! Our TV is on our bookcase where our crap-table used to be and the mini-fridge is next to it on the other side of the room and the couch is in the middle of the room and the crap-table is where it used to be and the fouton is in the corner where the fridge used to be... it's all flip-floped. I'd show you a before and after pic but all I have is an after pic... i'll still share it with you but you have nothing to compare it to.

this is the view from the front door, including handsome husband
don't mind the shabby couch...
and, for the record, I also changed the bedsheets, put away all the laundry, and hid some of the few thousand cords that were bombarding my side of the bed while Sean did the laundry and cleaned out the fridge yesterday. Also, we bought a vacuum that works. HOORAY! now I can always have clean floors! it even works on cleaning up our spilled cat litter in the kitchen. AND we bought kitty new food dishes because she's growing up and also a new kitchen mat that's weirdly made of rope but i love it.

AND! i'm getting new glasses sometime this week or next! from my favorite, Seriously, though, I recommend them to almost everyone who compliments my glasses (which tends to be a lot because I'm very fashion-forward. hah). No, I'm not replacing my old red ones that broke tragically in a walking incident... but I am getting a different pair of red ones and also some blue ones. HOORAY (again)! I can't wait to get them!

Anyway, I'm going to go eat my breakfast rice and enjoy my newly arranged furniture.
love, Ellen.

I love my Valentine

I want you to know before going into this that it's gonna be pretty gushy.

I love my husband. There is no better way to put that. He is exactly what I need.
I had an embarrassing emotional breakdown last night and, throughout the entire thing, Sean held me and listened to me blather on. He is just amazing.

I did this thing where I wrote 52 things I love about Sean on a deck of playing cards and I just keep thinking up more even though I'm all out of cards and he's already seen them. They look like this:

on the other side, there is a picture of our wedding. aw.

This morning, I woke up and went into the bathroom. Sean had to leave early, so I was home alone. I found a note written on the mirror and a box of fancy make-up! What a wonderful husband I have. And then, before I left for work this morning, I came outside and saw this on my car:

I seriously love this man.
Anyway, he should be home in about half an hour and then we'll see what he has planned. I don't know.
Okay, I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's day!
love, ellen.

joining a craze I don't know anything about...

I've been seeing a lot of people do lists of five (okay.. 2 people, but that's enough, right?) this month. So   I'm gonna be cool and join the club, I think and do... 5 Things About Me. seems easy enough...

  1. I've become 20 times the nerd I used to be ever since I married Sean. Don't get me wrong, I was always a nerd, but now I also love Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, Indiana Jones and all those now along with  Doctor Who, the newest Star Trek movie... a bunch.
  2. I'm not very good at telling stories and I have a problem with hypothetical conversations and the first step to recovery is admitting I have a problem. 
  3. I love corn dogs. I would probably 3 corn dogs for lunch every day for the rest of forever. 
  4. I'm a very slow reader but I love reading. 
  5. I am absolutely terrified of heights. I don't think you could pay me to go to the top of the Empire State Building... unless, of course, it was an incredible amount. 
okay. Now that i'm cool, I'm gonna go nap or eat or something. You know, Sunday stuff.
love, Ellen

Finally over it... i think...

We've been having some hard times with my car lately and  it has just been an ordeal. But I think it's finally back on track, although i lack a stereo, my car runs smooth with it's 2 new tires, new battery, and a few new fuses. Our house was a mess, I had homework, work was stressful, and i just couldn't see the end of it. But now, I think we're finally through all of it. phew, if you ask me. 

Today, we're doing some laundry at the new laundry place we found in our complex and going to a concert at In The Venue. Sounds like a nice day to me. ALSO, THE SUN! oh, glorious sun, shine your rays upon us that we may have light, life, and joy in thee always. forever and ever, amen. 

I finally took all the christmas music off my phone and updated it to have all the stuff I want and not all the crap that it used to. It might take some time to sync though... ugh. I wanna go already! it's only at 27%. 

Oh, and the super bowl is tomorrow! I'm so excited for the food and hanging out. Football, not so much... 31%. 

I think I've got most of Sean's Valentine's gift figured out. Still, though, if you have any good ideas, I'd much appreciate them! Also, I don't have much money. keep that in mind.. 

I think i'm gonna go soon. okay.
love, ellen
