Or should I say openage... I got the bag open that contained my undergarments... I know you are all breathing easier this morning.

So - we're back to the work week, back to over-extending myself. Back to trying to pretend that I really enjoy filing (I do! I do!)... Today is payday, opening day for the Mariners... (it's been a while since I've been around for an opening day...) it's also the last day of March. You know what that means??? Tomorrow if the first day of my birthday month! Start planning now.

Here are a few photos I took of Tim Brown's show on Saturday. I had to do something to keep myself awake so I took pictures.

I should really start looking for some studio space and/or a place to live where I can work... I've been slacking too long (okay - I realized slacking is not a good word here because even when I'm not really making things I'm still thinking about things). I just have to get a move on. I have a show in Chicago in September and I should probably start trying to figure out what I'm doing for it.

I think when I'm in Chicago in a few week's I'll go take pictures of the space and start planning my show. It will be nice to be in Chicago for a while - I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends and looking at art. Art Chicago is going to be going on so I am going to try to check it out while I'm there.

I guess that's it for this morning... It would be nice if I could go back to bed... One twelve hour night of sleep does not make up for six weeks of running oneself ragged.

My bras are stuck in a bag...

I did laundry today and put my bras in a bag so they could go in the washer. The zipper is broken on it and now I can't get it open. The bag doesn't belong to me so I can't cut it open.... I guess I'll just have to go bra-less.

No, I won't subject anyone to that... I'll just keep trying to get it open with the pliers and my pure will.


The results are in...

I managed to make it through the day yesterday - the only casualty was my watch. It fell off someplace and it's gone. Oh well, I guess it was time for a new watch.

I slept about 12 hours last night - I slept until my body couldn't take it anymore... until the point where it hurts to be horizontal.

I'm thinking yesterday I just needed to catch up on the sleep and take care of the cold. The beer from the night before was just secondary... I still feel sub-par. I'll just have to lay low today - only do the necessary things. Feed cats, buy coffee and take drugs for my cold.

Okay, I feel like crap. I better go.

Hijinks on the high seas...

I don't know if I spelled hijinks right but we'll just assume that it's right.

Here are photos from last night.

This is my lovely assistant Kristen and myself. (Please excuse the hair... I'm still adjusting to my new styling regimen).

It was too stinking cold to stay outside so we just went out for a few beauty shots.

Hey, Look! It's my Alaskan Amber enjoying the Seattle skyline!

This is Kristen's friend Lori - with Mr. Riemer....

This morning I am under the influence of a few things... a little too much beer, a lack of sleep and a cold which I believe which is finally here...

I am siting at the gallery today so come on by if you get a chance. You can wake me up from my nap.

Friday, March 28, 2008

I was once a supermodel.

No I wasn't... but it caught your attention didn't it?

Tonight my lovely assistant Kristen and I have decided to go on the :20 Funny Cruise put on by a local radio station KMTT (it's similar in style to WXRT in Chicago)... I hope I don't get seasick.

Last night I went to bed fairly early - it's just been too busy and I still have this sore throat. My mother is sick and there are other people at work who are sick as well. I can't really afford to become one of them. I enjoy sleeping. Too bad I can't take naps at work.

Tomorrow I will let you know how the cruise goes. I'm sitting at Crawl Space so come on by and say hi.

Today at work is our receptionists last day. She's been there forever - okay, not forever - but a long time. We're having a going away lunch for her and I helped pick out the cake. I love cake!

Have a great day everyone.

I'm feeling the bridge mix this morning... and the results of not going to the gym. Once again I am running along side the wagon (I have fallen off - but I'm not out of the race)...

Have I told you all about the singles websites that I sign up for but never answer any messages I get? Yeah, I've got a problem...

Today will be different! It's Kristen's birthday and we're going to lunch!

I've got nothing to rant about this morning.... I better just quit while I'm ahead (or is it behind?)....

Could I shove anything else in my mouth?

I've had a problem with controlling my food intake the past few days. I know I'm eating for reasons other than being hungry. I think I might just be really tired and not making the wisest choices. As always, I know what to do, I just have to do it.

Tonight for dinner I've had bridge mix and pistachio's... that's it. I think I need more fiber.... or more something... Sometimes I think if I could just make myself hurl that would be great! (okay, not great because that's just icky)...

I'm watching Oprah - it's a show on hoarders... I guess my life would be more challenging...

It's something to think about.

I think I'm awake.

This morning I am heading to work early to help set up for a construction law seminar. I have my new cute haircut and I think I'm awake.

Now to the haircut. I went to see my ex-boss Nancy (Yes, I used to work at a hair salon). I must say it's nice to have someone cut your hair that you completely trust. I just let her do what she thought was best. I'm going back next week to get some highlights put in. Before you know it I'm going to be one hot momma!

I can't say much more because I have to get a move on and see if I can style my hair.

Almost sick...

I've got this funny feeling in my throat. Not quite a tickle, not quite a frog....
I wish I would just either get sick or get better.

Today I am finally going to remedy my haircut dilemma. No more channeling David Cassidy for me!

I was thinking that this week was going to be a bit slower but I don't think it will be. I have lunch plans every day except tomorrow - Thursday is my lovely assistant Kristen's birthday! We are going to go to lunch... Friday is a going away lunch for the receptionist at our office. I'm all for free food.

I like housesitting but it is inconvenient in getting to the gym. I suppose I could go after work but who has the energy? I sure don't.

Where has the time gone? I have to get moving or I'm going to be late.

Monday, March 24, 2008

Ready, Set, Go!

Well, another Monday is here to greet us with open arms... and kick us in the ass if we don't settle down.

I'm sitting here in the house where I am house sitting, I've got my french press next to me - I'm just waiting to plunge it. I feel the beginnings of some weirdness in the back of my throat, it's a little tender. I'm trying to determine what time I need to actually leave the house here to trek up the hill to get to the bus. I sure hope I don't screw up and make it to work late... It sure would be nice to just sleep a while... I don't think my week is as full as the last one was - that will be nice. I do have to work on a grant application for Crawl Space and get my hair cut (yay).

This afternoon I am having lunch with Lillian. She's a freshman at Western and I've known here since she was a very little person. It makes me feel old seeing all these ex little people become adults.

Okay, as always I should get a move on... shake a leg Peg...make like a tree and leave.. You get the idea.

The perfect studio...

The perfect studio in my opinion would have the following.

a television

wireless internet

a big comfy chair

and a massage therapist

Okay, I suppose I don't really need the massage therapist but it would be nice.

Hoppy Easter!

Ha Ha Ha! I am sooooo funny. Okay, maybe not.

If you are one of my dedicated readers (all six of you)... you will know that today I will go to church and I will sing my favorite hymn "Christ the Lord is Risen Today". I think I posted link to it a few years back so if you want to dig through my old posts you can hear it. Last year I went to see Blades of Glory and then had an exciting dinner from the hot food bar at Whole Foods. This year the whole family's coming over to our house.

The opening last night was good... I didn't hurt myself too much in cycling class and I am starting a house sitting gig tonight. It should be fun. I should be able to come to you all in living wifi... I've got to get around to getting a faster connection here at home.

Uhhh... that's about it, I have to work on a grant application now.

Saturday, March 22, 2008

It's the same wherever you go.

I have come to realize (not just recently) that there are those certain office "types" in all offices. The brown-noser, the tattletale, the victim and the numskull. There are more types out there... I think I'm a cross between a brown-noser and a "good girl" - if only they knew... It's surprising how some people get so worked up about things in the office... they just need to chill out. I've come to realize that it is not my life and I can pretty much leave it at work. It's fun to watch how all the roles play themselves out.

I ended up going out for drinks after work with a few of my co-workers.... we went to Ruth Chris Steak House. It's hard to be a beer girl in a martini world...

When I got home I was a vegetable until 8:30 and then I went to bed. What an exciting life I lead.

Today I'm going to torture myself with cycling and grant writing. How fun is that?

Friday, March 21, 2008

A change of plans...

It's been a busy week and I'm glad it's Friday. I was going to go to Tulalip Casino tonight and see the Beatnik's but my plans have changed so I have a free evening. What should I do? I suppose I could try to lie low and get rid of this cold that is trying to catch up with me.

Nahhhhh. I'll figure out something to do.

I was a little cranky yesterday... I had someone (in my opinion) question my work ethic. Or at least that's how it felt. I realize this person does not know me that well enough yet and the track record of other people in my job has not been great so I will cut them some slack. People just need to relax and chill out a bit. I've been working in law firms for almost 20 years so I think I know what I'm doing. I know I'm doing a good job and I am appreciated by people so there.

I helped Tim work on his show last night. I think It's going to be good... It got a star next to it in the Stranger so you all should come out and see it.

On the horizon I have cycling class tomorrow, my hair will be cut on Tuesday (say goodbye to David Cassidy) and I have a lunch date with my friend Bryan. Oh, there's also a construction law seminar at work... I get to help set up and there might be cute construction workers there! Hot-cha! Things are looking up!

Welcome to hurtsville.

I am having one of those weeks. Monday during the St. Patrick's Day party at work I accidentally ran into the corner of the conference room table at work (no I was not drunk - yet)... now I have a big bruise on my leg. Yesterday I dropped a file holder thing on my foot - it broke the skin through the sock I was wearing and now it hurts like a you know what. Not enough to make me limp, but I may try to get a bit of sympathy from people.

Last night I actually did nothing which was nice. Okay, I take that back I did laundry.

I finally found the cable for my camera so here's a good shot of Stinky.

She is very cute don't you think? I think she could be a dog model.

On my agenda today is work and then helping Tim install his show. I think I might start researching new races to run in as well - my new microphone should be coming on Monday. Yay.

Have a good day and try not to let anything fall on you!

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Umm... it's Wednesday.

I'm beginning to feel the effects of my busy schedule... I'm tired and I have cramps. What better combo is there?

Dinner last night was good - scampi at Palomino. I am exuding garlic today... I took a photo of Michael (TCBFC) to post but I can't find my card reader for my laptop so I guess it will have to wait until I do a little cleaning around the house.

Today I don't have anything planned outside of work which is a good thing. Tomorrow night I am helping with the install of Tim's show at Crawl Space and then Friday I am going to Tulalip to see the Beatnik's and celebrate my friend Nancy's 40th Birthday.

I might just collapse on Saturday - that is after my cycling class and the opening... I suppose being busy is sometimes better than doing nothing at all. I said when I moved back to Seattle I wanted to get out more and that is exactly what I'm doing. I shouldn't really complain.

The countdown to my birthday will be starting soon... Last year I said I was going to run in a marathon by the time I turned 41... I was just kidding. Maybe I'll walk a half marathon but that's about all I think I could do right now. Hmmm... maybe I'll see if there are any races going on in Chicago while I'm visiting...

I better get moving. Over and out.

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Is it Friday?

I was looking forward to the work week so things might slow down but I don't think they are going to. My friend Michael is in town for a Toxicology conference (doesn't that sound like fun?)... you might recall that Michael is my friend who I used to have a big crush on and made artwork about... we're cool now so I can talk about it freely. If you go back to the early days of my blog you can see my tribute to him.

I was a dork, but it was heartfelt and funny so there you go.

We're having dinner tonight... it should be fun. He stopped by the office yesterday and I couldn't stop jumping up and down... maybe it was the Guinness controlling my actions.

I'm running out of time now so I best get a move on.

Monday, March 17, 2008

Have you ever???

Have you ever felt like your thighs had been clamped tightly in vices for ten hours and than released to their former free-flowing selves only to find you can't walk? Okay, I can walk but it is still a bit painful.

I guess that's the price we pay in the quest for firm glutes and thighs.

I'm at Nancy's right now, I should be working swiftly in order to get ready for work and pack things so I can be out of here this morning and make it to work on time.

Oh yeah, happy St. Patrick's Day. I bet you the party is already started in Chicago.

Holy crap my backside hurts...

A sucker for a skating movie...

So... I'm sitting here watching the Family Chanel right now. I'm watching the Family Chanel original movie The Cutting Edge 3. If you've ever perused my profile you might have noticed that one of my favorite movies is the Cutting Edge (the original with DB Sweeney and Moira Kelly). I just couldn't resist it. Same story with different actors and reversed roles... but that's alright. Everyone needs a little schmaltz once in a while.

It's not nearly as embarrassing as admitting that I'm a fan of Celine Dion.

I don't think I'm ready for this.

I'm awake, I've got the coffee ready to go, I've got the outfit picked out... but it's too stinking cold to be running.

I suppose I did run in Chicago when it was less than thirty degrees out, but that was different. It wasn't damp. (would I like some cheese to go with that wine?)

I suppose you could call it suffering for my art... once I start running I will warm up... it's thinking about the time in between dropping stuff at the gear check and the start of the race I fear.

Last night I ordered some good binaural microphones. You might be wondering what those are... I was wondering too... they are microphones that go into your ears and they do an amazing job recording things. They also just look like headphones so you can look inconspicuous while you're recording your friends conversations. Too bad I didn't hear how they sounded until yesterday - I could have ordered them sooner. Tia had a pair and I tested them out last weekend in my digital voice recorder and I was blown away. I now am very excited about the possibilities of their use.

Okay, I guess I should just get a move on and get on with this all.

I will update you later.

Saturday, March 15, 2008

I am going to lose my mind... seriously.

Do you ever have one of those things that just gnaws at you? I listen regularly to the Mountain (KMTT) and they've been playing a new song by Peter Gabriel which I think is titled One World or Whole World or some similar two word title. They say that it is available on iTunes but I can't find it! When I google Peter Gabriel's name I can't find it either. It is driving me insane.

If you have any info on this matter please help me.

You might have noticed that I have a photo with this post. That is because I am coming to you in full wifi internet access! That also means I can't diddle daddle because I have to get ready for my ww meeting.

I ended up going out last night with my friend Matt, his wife, and friend. He quit his job and it was his last day yesterday. What better way to celebrate than with fried food?

Friday, March 14, 2008

It's a bad day to be a mover.

Last night we were having a meeting for the Crawl Space membership when all of a sudden we heard a guy yelling and then a thud (or was it a crash?).. Then the car alarm started.... Two guys were moving things and the guy who was yelling got squished in between the truck and a car when his partner accidentally backed into him. We decided that his hip was broken. Luckily I didn't see it happen or I would have been sick. Tony actually saw it happen, he said the guy tried to walk but then fell down. We saw all of this from the balcony of the apartment we were in. The only good thing about this entire situation was that I got to see a bunch of cute firemen and paramedics.

It's a busy weekend for me... I have to watch Pirate the cat, run in the St. Patrick's Day Dash, attend meetings and then help de-install the show at Crawl Space. It should make for an exhausting weekend.

On the bright side, things are going well! It's payday and successfully stayed away from sugar yesterday.

ALSO - Please go to the Crawl Space News page to find out about our Studio Intensive Residency. We lock you in the gallery for a week and you make new art!

High heels in Heaven.

I'm hoping that if heaven does exist that I will be able the wear high heels comfortably there. My bunions won't hurt, my metatarsal on my right food won't create a callus, and Christian Louboutin shoes will be affordable.

Also I would like heaven to have good calorie free beer, Stacy London as my personal stylist and wiener dogs that can talk.

Is that too much to ask for?

The need to vacate.

I have developed an overwhelming desire to go on a "real" vacation. You know, one of those things where you pay money to stay in a hotel and lie on a beach for a week?

I think it would be nice to go to Hawaii or Spain or Italy... Now if I could just find someone to go with me.

The last time I went on that sort of vacation was in 1989. I was 22 and went to Hawaii with my sisters, my mom, aunt and best friend Malyn. I was a lot larger then and didn't quite have my act together. I think I would enjoy it more now... If only I was independently wealthy and had a bikini. And a personal trainer to get my abs in shape.

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

It's that time of the year...

I was out of sorts yesterday.

They say that switching to daylight savings time throws your body off and I have to agree. Or else it was all the sugar and carbs I ate (and the Fiber One bars)...

I ended up falling asleep at 7:30 again... at least I managed to make it to the gym this morning. This fitness kick has got to get easier sometime. I enjoy sweating a lot... but actually getting to the gym is hard.

It is raining this morning... I wish Fedex hadn't lost my box of things - in it was my nice red raincoat. Now it's gone. I supposed I could buy the one at Ann Taylor that costs $198.00 but that would be a bit extravagant.

On Sunday a Fedex driver commented on my post about Fedex sucking... He explained the conditions that they drive under etc... I posted the comment Here.

I was just really frustrated with Fedex in general... I bet my package will show up someday... I can only hope.

Thighs of steel.

I guess I worked harder in my cycling class this week. My leg is all messed up, Saturday night I woke up and my right hip was all out of whack and now my right ankle is hurting (the hip got better)...

I guess it's the price we pay for beauty. My inner thighs are tender - it feels like I've been googling (if you know what I mean)... I haven't - if I had you all would have heard about it.

Last night I stopped by Wallgreen's after helping my dad with some chores. I succumbed to the nut aisle again. I also bought some Fiber One Bars because they were on sale. Do I ever learn my lesson? NO! I ate three of them and now my tummy is paying me back. When will I ever learn?

This week is once again full. Working for a living, meetings for the gallery, house/cat sitting... next weekend I have the st. Patrick's Day Dash, camp meetings and de-installation... I guess I'd rather be busy than bored. Oh, it's also payday on Friday too.

I guess I should get ready for work now. I was going to try and make it to the gym but it's too stinking dark and when my alarm went off my body wasn't moving. There's always tomorrow.

Sunday, March 09, 2008


I have made it to another sunday and I am thankful. It seems like I have too much to do and too little time lately.

Here is a link to Tia Kramer's jewelry. She's working on a website but it's not up yet.

I'm thinking I should start (continue?) working on my taxes. I'm thinking I may have to pay this year because I didn't make a ton and I didn't have the most taken out... I think I do qualify as a business though... We'll see how it goes.

This afternoon I am delivering the goods to my dad (Milky Way Dark miniatures) and helping him with some organizational things. (that means going through junk)...

I'm currently at Third Place Books using their free wifi so I can update all my iTunes etc...

Talk to you all later.

Saturday, March 08, 2008

It's a beautiful morning in downtown Lake City!

I'm lying. It's dark, it's cold, it's Lake City!

Okay, it's not that bad.

Last night I went to the open studio of my friend Tia and bought some earrings and commissioned a new necklace. I kid you not, her work is a hot commodity.

I convinced her to come to my house for dinner tonight... she gets to meet Stinky! and the rest of my family.

After my ww meeting today I am going to go to Cycling class and try to work up a sweat and slim those thighs down.

I'm feeling a bit icky... partially because I have a crick in my neck but also because I had beer both Thursday and Friday nights. I don't think my body is used to it. I need a nice benefactor/massage therapist boyfriend to work out all the knots...

Friday, March 07, 2008

I must be on drugs...

Have you ever had one of those days when you think you've got everything figured out and then realize you don't?

I been thinking that the show at Crawl Space ended this weekend but I was wrong... which is good news for all of you. I am just losing my mind that's all...

It sucks getting old.

In a perfect world I would have thin thighs, beer would have no calories and I would have someone to hold my hair back while I barfed... Oh the dreams I aspire to.

I got a message from my friend Tia yesterday... you might recall she is the one who works at McMurdo Station and met Ann Curry. She is living in Seattle now and is having an open studio tonight. She makes great jewelery that incorporates hand made paper. I'm going to buy me some more... I wore one of her necklaces yesterday and I got many compliments on it. She's a good person who makes good work.

Thursday, March 06, 2008

I think I'm going to lose it.

I have to wait three more weeks until I can get my David Cassidy inspired hairdo rectified. I don't think I can take it. It's getting to that stage where it's becoming unmanageable and messy (okay so it's sort of looked like that all along).

So, here's the news that's fit to print. Everyone should get into Crawl Space this weekend for the video centennial. It's good and it ends on Sunday. I will be there Sunday afternoon to help de-install so if you need to see me for any reason.

I have also lined up a bunch of house-sitting gigs for the end of the month. I am extremely popular (but you knew that already)... I will be raking in the cash for my visa card fund and my trip to Chicago fund. I like earning money... I got my earnings statement from Social Security last week... I only made 4,700 in 2006. Oh, the life of a grad student. But now I'm on the road to financial freedom (okay, maybe not freedom - but independence?)...

There's an opening for a sculpture professor at University of Oregon. My friend Josh is a professor in the Fibers Department there... maybe I should apply... I could live in Eugene.

I'm trying to upload a picture for you all... I know you've missed my photos since I've been living in my dial up world... maybe with all the cash I'm going to rake in I can afford dsl or cable internet.... hmmmm.

Here you go. It's Matt, Hoda, Me and my sign. I hope you all have a splendid day!

Dangerous Territory

I ordered two boxes of Girl Scout Cookies yesterday. One box of Thin Mints and one box of Tagalongs (those are the ones that have the chocolate and peanut butter).

I might be flirting with disaster here.

Once Karolina had to physically restrain me from going over to a shopping cart full of them (they were thin mints).. I yelled at her and said "I just want to look at them!". That's when I knew I had a problem.

1 point per cookie. I think there's at least 18 in a sleeve... two sleeves in a box... You do the math.

I'll have to be at the gym all weekend if I eat the whole box.

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

I've been looked at....

I think I've been seen by Regina. Okay, I know I have - oh crap. Oh well... I suppose all artists are a bit crazy (or is that messed up?)... I feel as though I have a controlled craziness. I appear normal on the outside but then you get to know me and all bets are off. I guess I'm probably normal (or is that boring?) compared to a lot of people she meets.

I suppose it's a good thing to put yourself out there. You're definitely not going to get anywhere if you don't take risks. Right?

I have got to get in gear and start making things (art-wise)... I am getting the brows waxed this morning so that will be a good thing.

No gym this morning... if today is anything like yesterday at work I won't need it. I ran around like a crazy person. Maybe someday I'll be brave (crazy) enough to post pictures of my thighs to show you my progress in the firm thigh campaign.

Monday, March 03, 2008

What was I saying?

I feel sorry for people who just meet me. I sometimes forget that I have a habit of not finishing sentences (or thoughts for that matter). I think I finish them in my head, I just never get the words out. It's hard to follow what I'm saying at times.

I recall listening to Vija Clemins while I was studying in Rome. I think she was similar in the way she spoke... I knew that I could relate to her... maybe thats why I have so many "dot dot dot's" in my posts.... (look, there's another set).

I promise all of you that you will get used to the way I talk (If you meet me and we become friends)... my mother says I also say "I don't know" a lot... well, I don't know about that. (she's right)...

It makes it hard to talk about ones artwork when you can't get the words out.

okay, enough about my speaking difficulties...

I am not feeling the cycling class from Saturday - maybe that means I didn't work as hard as I could have... I am back on track when it comes to food and I have done laundry so I won't smell if you run into me.

On the agenda this week - Openings on Thursday including Jason Wood's show at Gallery4 Cutlture, working on my thin thigh regimen (and training for the St. Patrick's Day run), and getting my brows done....

Over and out.

Sunday, March 02, 2008

Shout out to Regina...

So I'm sitting at the Gallery today and Regina Hackett from the PI comes in. I told her that I read her blog... then I said I had a blog. She asked me to write the address down. So I did.


Her blog is focused on art. Mine focuses on my favorite subject - ME! and my quest for a good reuben sandwich... and life happiness... and art.

So Regina if you're checking this out - I hope you aren't disappointed. I wish I could have told you about my time in New York and what I was doing there but I might be shot by the producers (er, I mean the people I was associated with). Oh how I long to be an Artstar...

Sunday is my fun-day!

Oh, the Bangles... whatever happened to them?

I got a phone call from my friend Tia yesterday. You may recall she is my friend who works at McMurdo Station and met Ann Curry when she was there. Well, she lives in Seattle now and happened to go into Crawl Space yesterday and found out that I was a member there. I'm so excited that she's here!

She makes the best jewelry... it's sterling silver (?) that is covered in hand made paper. since I am employed now I may have to buy a few more pieces from her.

Things seem to be falling into place.

On the workout front, I am only feeling my cycling class in my butt today... specifically where I sit.... tomorrow I'm sure I will feel differently. Last night I went to see Into the Wild. It's a really good movie... I know I say that about all the movies I've seen lately - but I don't go to see bad movies. At least not yet.

This afternoon I'm watching the gallery... everyone come down and see the show and check out the progress of my thin thigh campaign.


Saturday, March 01, 2008

Firm thighs here I come!

I discovered cycling class today. Right now I'm still basking in the endorphin soaked glow of my post workout shower.... I may not be able to walk tomorrow - but for now I am feeling groovy!

I will have firm thighs and a cute butt! okay, my butt is kind of cute now but it's going to be even cuter.

This afternoon I will wash dishes and then this evening I am going to go see Into the Wild. I think I can fork over three bucks for a movie...

This is pretty good... two posts in one day.

Good things about Saturday.

I could sleep in if I wanted to.

I get to see my friends at WW.

I get to wash dishes.

Tonight if I can stay up past 9pm I may try to do something - what exactly that is I don't know.

Yesterday I got a paycheck. I mean a real paycheck... it's strange having money. I looked at a lot of shoes yesterday, but didn't purchase any. I need to save.

I saw on the news last night that the credit card debt is almost at a trillion dollars (or was it a billion?). I only have 1500.00 so I consider myself lucky.... I think I'm doing alright.

PJ called last night. He's happy that I'm coming to visit. I'm happy too. I think I might act like a tourist while I'm there (Chicago). He conferred with a few people and we are going to have a party while I'm there. Now I have something more to look forward to.

I have to weigh in this morning... I don't think the news is going to be any different. Maybe I should pay for the meeting then I will get back on track.

Okay, now I'm just rambling... did you hear that jlo named her babies Max and Emme? That's kind of cute... just like me!
