so let's get this started. 'cause it's been
-Jillian Michaels. maybe it's because i've been doing Insanity for the past 6 months (SIX MONTHS!) and i'm just used to Shaun T and his big
-realizing a trip to the grocery store to buy peanut butter was the most social interaction i've had in about 2 and a half weeks. roughly.
-having to go to 3 (count them 1,2,3) different grocery stores to find said peanut butter. you guys, it's just the best. and i can't settle for anything less. the name says it all. it is for real the Bee's Knees. and maybe even the cat's pajamas, too. yes. definitely.
=the slow and steady process of learning how to drive garrett's car. i wish i could explain the emotion, the sheer panic that courses through my veins when i get in the driver's seat and have to start thinking about clutches and gears and RPMs(?) and Lord help me if a child runs out in the street, i would probably have more success throwing myself out of the car and running to save the kid than trying to remember all of that clutch in, clutch out, down shift crap. slow and steady.
-finding the most fantastically old and terribly cheesy and laudably wonderful Feature Films for Families movies on Youtube. please tell me i wasn't the only one who watched Rigoletto and On Our Own on the reg in the mid 1990's. please.
- being well and healthy again. i think Sweet Brown described illness best when she said "ain't nobody got time for that!"
-having 201 GFC followers! it warms my heart. i realize that's nothing compared to a lot of other blogs, but it does make me happy. and i hope you will all take off your coat and stay a while. because i like you.
-working with Helene at Helene In Between and re-designing her blog for her. i really love doing it and it's weird, but i think it's a lot of fun. also, it's always great getting to know other bloggers. it's a fun world to be a part of. (side note: if you want your blog re-designed, head over to Scrapcake Designs and let's work together!)
Are you serious?!:
-so the weather has been nuts. there is some sort of cosmic atmospheric war going on between the gods of winter and spring and it is taking a serious toll on my life. okay, maybe that's too dramatic. it's taking a serious toll on my wardrobe. i never know how to dress. wednesday i was in shorts. thursday i was freezing in jeans and a sweatshirt. also, it just sucks.
-my car is still broken. it's not like i've taken it in somewhere and it's still broken. so i guess i can't totally complain about it. it's not like the poor thing will fix himself just sitting in the driveway. but the issue is this 1) i can't drive it to a place to get it fixed. because it's broken. 2) i probably can't afford to have it fixed right now anyways. 3) i could have it towed to find out what's wrong, but if i can't afford to have it fixed it would be sort of an awkward situation...having to tow it right back to my driveway. every day i look out my window and will poor Fritz to be better. it hasn't worked yet. but maybe tomorrow.
-i'm pretty sure that somewhere someone (that i apparently wronged in some past life) has a voodoo doll of me, a desire for vengeance and a red sharpie. oh, hey adult acne!
and i think the image of me with adult acne/red sharpie all over my face is a good one to sign off on.
happy friday! happy february!
