Project 365: Day 5

I was babysitting the tiny one, and this is the picture she took of me. I kept telling her to move her fingers, but taking the picture is way more exciting for her than the end result.

PS: You may have noticed I missed a day. Whatever. I think I am doing pretty well, and I am trying not to dwell on the negative.

Project 365: Day 3

OK, I cheated on this one. I MEANT to take a picture of the sushi I ate, but I ate it too fast! My friend, Sarah, took me out for my birthday. Birthday Sushi!! I totally heart Birthday Sushi.

Project 365: Day 2

Day two of my yoga routine. When I was in college, I used to do yoga quite at bit at the house on 4th St. and I used to go to the gym on Friday nights before a huge night of binge drinking. It helped with the digestion. But it has been many, many moons since I have watched my videos. I decided since I can't really afford a gym membership right now, I might as well as use the stuff I have.

I am sore, and not flexible AT ALL, but I am starting to feel better already! Hopefully this summer won't be full of pants and not shorts!

Project 365: Day 1

Today, the first day of Project 365, I took a picture of my dinner.

Ever since I moved into my new condo, I have been trying to make dinners at home. I find it very hard to make dinners for just myself for a couple of reasons, but mostly because I usually hate leftovers.

Tonight I made bacon wrapped salmon with mashed potatoes. Everything tastes good with bacon, right?

Project 365

My friend, and fellow blogger, Lorna started a new scrapbooking project called Project 365. She takes a picture every day and scraps it. I decided I wanted to do this, but I simply can't do another scrapbook! So, I decided maybe, just maybe, it will help me to blog every day.

Or at least once a week.....

Here we go!!!!

New Year, New Home

Not everyone gets a new house and new carpet for Christmas!!

Mom and Dad and I spent the entire Christmas Weekend cleaning and fixing the condo to be ready for move in. Dad had a cold (which I promptly caught and turned into bronchitis), but he had the carpet ripped out in about a half an hour. Then we spent the rest of the day pulling up staples from the floorboards. We tried to put a new door in - a brand new one that we found in the garage! - but it didn't have any grooves cut into it, and I certainly don't have the tools for it. So that didn't turn out well, but the carpet demo was HUGE, and saved me (Mom & Dad) $300.

More good news: I found computer speakers that I was hoping would be able to hook up to my laptop and blast my iTunes throughout the place. It took me some time to figure it out, but I did it.

And the best good news: Condo association fee is $50 LESS a month than I had anticipated!! That means I bought this place for EXACTLY what I wanted to spend on RENT! How awesome is that? I am pretty pleased with the situation, and I will be even more pleased when I am feeling better and I can actually move my bed into the place so I can sleep there!!
