Oh, friends.....so many things on my mind and on my To Do list. I'm just getting back into the real world so if you're a friend in real life? I swear you'll hear from me soon.....
We have scarcely left the house for the last 2 weeks. Noodle has been sick off and on, I've been feeling crappy, too. Now Noodle's back at school and I'm starting feel human again.
First thing on my To-Do list today? Going with MJ to the Great Estate and to Crossroads Delicatessen. We'll talk about a cookbook MJ's writing and make it a "business lunch". I've mentioned Crossroads in this blog before. If you are from the Twin Cities, you must go there.
You must. No arguments. It's just good food. Not fancy frou-frou, but yummy. I love their matzo ball soup and their hummus. You will too.
Don't go to the Great Estate, though. Don't do it. There will be less for me to look at and possibly buy if you do.
So stay away.
Plus? MJ is looking for a desk/table like my office desk. And guess what? The last time we were there? We found a bunch of the pieces that go with my desk. Good lookin' stuff! And the next time I buy an upholstered piece of furniture? It's going to be from there. Gorgeous stuff.
Here's another thing I've been thinking about: New Years Resolutions.
Have you made one? Do you normally do that? If you have, what is it? That is, if you don't mind sharing......
I always do a lame one.....something little and attainable that I know I can succeed at. This year it's:
- Try and use my reusable grocery bags and get on the road to going "bagless". My sister, Myrna, gave me a great bag for Christmas that will help me with this. It's one of those Lands' End canvas bags with the pockets on the inside. I LOVE IT.
- Start walking the neighbor dogs a couple of times a week again. I used to do this a lot, but haven't been doing it at all lately.
- To start making more of an effort to see my friends. In person.
There you have it. Boring? Yep. But feel free to click on that little red and white "X" and get rid of me.
Because it's my blog. So I can talk about anything I want. And sometimes? It's going to be boring.
Am I going to?
I've decided to find a cheap one. Because I'm desperate. And while I WANT to spend $1200 on this beautiful hunka-hunka machine? I have too many other things to throw my money at right now. So I'm going to one of those discount appliance places to start looking for a good deal. I'm hoping to find one for $400-500.
I'm sick of looking at dirty dishes in my sink. Sick to freakin' death of it!
One more thing: I'm going to get all Fly Lady on all ya'll. Mmmmmmmhmmmmmmmm.
I need a little organization in my life. And while I used to be all psycho about how my house looked? I'm not anymore. It's cluttered and out of control.
And it couldn't be the HOURS wasted every single day reading blogs, could it?
Nnnnnnnooooooo. I'm sure it couldn't be that! I can quit that anytime I want.
I just don't want to.
