Hi Cooper! (He is the only one who reads this)
If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)
Someone pray for me! I have started down that dark path - scrapbooking. Happy smiling women with applique sweatshirts come to "help" you at the scrapbooking store. Your eyes become glazed over as you move zombie like through the rows of specialty handmade paper and collections of stickers. Soon you've bought 2 pieces of paper and a razor for $50. Those women are handmaidens of the devil! Help Me!
alright, this may come as quite a shock to my family but here it is:
i spent the morning with my mother making pie crusts.
that's right - mom made 2 and I made 6. now all i got to do is learn how to knit and my family will no longer recognize me anymore.
Been doing nothing but working and shopping. Now that i am out of money, all that I am doing is working. Posted more to my other blog, you can read it if you can find it
One good thing about yesterday: doing yoga I noticed that my heels are almost reaching the floor while in the downward dog position. This, for me, is a big accomplishment.
Trying to get Christmas shopping (and budget) done...
This morning while talking about work, I was told "Everyone says how you give 110%". What a nice compliment! Not sure how true that always is, but nice just the same. And my work is going to start offering checking incentives with my current bank. What a good day!
So I really should have gone to my office job today, but I blew it off. Instead, I cleaned up and did super anal organizational things - I took digital pictures of my shoes to put on the outside of the boxes they are in. You're jealous of my jet-setting life!
I make fun of my friends who read those message boards you find all over the place, but now I find myself reading blogs of people I don't know. I wonder if the links people put on their blog to other people's blogs are people they actually know or if they are like me - stumbling around and like to come back to the same ones. To any of my friends who actually read this - yes, I am aware that I am a big goob.
Flew all night last night and no Northern Lights. I am at my office job now wondering how long I will last before I fall off my chair to sleep on the floor.
Added the pictures from Tallstacks on my dad's boat with Emmy today. They are on my Family page (link on right). You have to have a membership with Tripod (free) to access the pictures. email me your Tripod name and I will add you to the list to view my picture pages.
I got my airline tickets that I won from work yesterday! Still haven't figured out where I am going... Hopefully somewhere in January.
I am a bad citizen. No I did not vote yesterday. In my defense, for the first time I am registered, hard to register anywhere since the past 10 years I have moved at least once a year. I read an article about how it is not ambivalance that is the reason people don't vote, it is that people are working so much they dont have the time to figure out who to vote for. So since I am at work an average 65 hours a week that is my excuse this year.
I also have slacked on the workouts lately.
Right now I am at my office job trying to think up something to do.
