I got 99 problems....not really

Day 27: A problem that you have had.

I have lots of tiny problems, but nothing really big lately.  I guess I could write about how I have way too many dreams and ambitions and not enough moolah to make them happen.  I think we all have that problem.  There are so many things I want and places I want to go; yet a very limited cash flow.

Today Elexis and I are going to beat the heat and go tour the capitol building.  I love that it is free.  We are also going to go tour a place called Overholser Mansion.  I am very excited about that because I love architecture.  I plan on taking a trip up to Tulsa during the summer and visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's only completed skyscraper.

Edit:  We had a great time today.  We played tourist in our own state.  The Overholser Mansion excited Elexis so much, that we have decided to volunteer there.  I can't wait until we do that.  The capitol building was awesome.  I haven't really been on a tour in about 20 years.  It was great to go back.  Especially since now the dome has been added.  Our original capital was suppose to have a dome, but they ran out of funding.  The builders made the ceiling to illusion that there was a dome.  In 2002, we finally got enough money from donors and stuff to get our dome.  I have so many pictures to edit and blog about...guess I better get busy.  :)

Also, funny story:  On Monday night, I gave myself whiplash by tripping on a step in my house.  I was carrying two plates of food and I fell forward hitting my head on the door frame.  I managed to not drop any of the food except a few chips.  I do have a love cluster of bruises on my forehead and one on my knee.  My forehead was swollen until yesterday.  My neck feels a whole lot better though.  My husband and daughter were quite impressed that I didn't drop the food.  Now if I could just work on my gracefulness....

  1. Playing tourist in your own town can be fun.

    Regarding your fall...I think I would have been okay dropping the food. :-) Ouch!

    1. It hurt at the time, but not nearly as bad as I was hurting the next morning. My head is still tender at the point of impact.

      We have several more touristy things lined up that I am very excited about.

  2. OUCH! I am impressed, too, that you didn't drop the food. And your trip sounded like so much fun. I want to take Darian and Harley to Topeka to our capital but that will have to wait.....

    1. I understand. They would probably enjoy it. How far is Topeka from you? Our capitol is about 15 minutes max from us. I pass by it several times a week. I told Elexis we are so fortunate to have it pretty much in our backyard. We have a castle here in Oklahoma too; we plan on visiting that this summer too. It's about an hour and half away.

  3. I'm pretty impressed about how you saved the food too. That actually was sort of graceful...maneuvering yourself so that the plates didn't tip. Sorry you fell and got bruises though.

    1. haha!! It was okay. It's been almost a week and my head is still tender at the impact sight. My bruises are a lovely shade of yellow brown. I just can't believe I didn't spill.

  4. OUCH, feel better soon. Sounds like a good day, hope you'll share some pictures of the day. More people should play tourist in their home state.
