Keep On the Sunny Side

Jason is in New York yet again. I try to make myself feel better by thinking about how I have the whole bed to myself, how no one else will eat the sugar-free pudding cups I've been hoarding in the fridge and how I can watch things like the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency on Oxygen without being made fun of. Of course now that I'm admitting it on the internet it kind of negates the not being made fun of part but my point is that there are positives to me not being in New York with him! POSITIVES, YOU HEAR ME?

Public Plea

Can we PLEEEEEEASE use our tax refund money to go to the Bellagio?

(Help me out here, people.)

My 29th birthday is in six weeks. About six months ago I decided that I would work to be in my best shape ever for the final year of my twenties. Up until November I was steadily on track to reach that goal, however, since the holidays I've definitely been in a downward spiral. The good news is that I do work out to some extent every day- I just don't eat nearly as healthy as I should anymore. After dropping thirteen pounds before my high school reunion I've put probably eight of those back on. Bah! Oh steak and potatoes, how I love you. And ice cream. And anything carb-tastic. So... over the next six weeks I will be embarking on a renewed regimen so that hopefully I can celebrate my twenty-ninth year with head held high.

And steak.

Mmmmm.... Demolition

It's January again and the dust is flying!


Say goodbye to the 70's style wood paneling in Ava's room! It was nice while it lasted... Sort of.


Oh yes, and more paint:


Now if only I could take a sledgehammer to that sink.

Back. Log.

We've been back for two days now and I'm still not done getting caught up with this thing called life. It probably doesn't help that I've unoffficially dubbed 2007 the Year of Organization so that's bound to make me feel daunted.

Coming Soon: The Great Vacation Photo Dump. Stay tuned.

Whatever Will Be Will Be

I'm not a fan of making New Years resolutions because it seems that making an official declaration all but confirms it will be broken within the week. However, I do have a few small goals that I will be working toward in the coming year. I will pretend that they are something completely different than resolutions. Just go with it.

1) Be more responsible financially and put more money into savings/investmensts.
2) Stay the course with my health goal on being in my best shape ever when I turn 29.
3) Continue working on and improving our home.
4) Slowly organize and wrangle all our mountains of stuff- photos, videos, files etc.
5) Not to feel guilty when spending more than "x" amount of time on myself. (Whether it's something creative or just lying on the couch reading a book.)

Oh yes, and of course I will pay more attention to my languishing blog. And hopefully go to Vegas. And spend one weekend watching all three Lord of the Rings movies back to back. But now I'm just getting sidetracked...

We are headed to Florida for the next week for a little post-New Year's vacation. Hopefully we will not be dressed like this:


See you soon!

Happy 2007!
