Frugality: Grocery costs totalled $40 this week…ten bucks under budget. This month’s takeout is a little over….about $65. I went out with my friend Sarah for Mexican on Tuesday…unplanned, but very worthwhile expense. I’m all for budgeting, but I don’t want to forsake hanging out with a friend who needs some time out of the house.
Knitting: I worked on my mom’s skinny scarf at choir last night. I need to work on my bell-sleeved shrug, too. From reading other knitters’ comments about this pattern, it appears that I’m not the only one who noticed that it was waaaaaaaaay too short. Someone gave the measurements for how long they knitted the sleeves and back, so I’m back in the game. And, on a slightly unrelated note, I got a solo on a pretty awesome song for our conference in March. Yay!
Grad School: Discussion posts done for World Lit. Will commence discussion posts for Asian-American Lit soon. Good reading, good movies. Lots of work.
Eating: Not great…I weighed myself this morning. We’ll leave it at that.
Work: This week, I’ve discovered yet another new way that I’m just like my father (which I definitely don’t mind, fyi). Meetings are worthless. Just leave me alone and let me do my job. I’ll be much happier that way. So will my clients.
Weather: Today: Sunny and 60. Tomorrow: Cold and Rainy. Tomorrow night/Saturday am: 1-4 inches of snow. The grocery stores are packed. People must have bread and milk. I swear, in the South, I think that even VEGANS buy milk when they hear that snow is coming. Perhaps it’s a conspiracy between the grocery industry and the dairy board…hmmm…
Shelli: We haven’t had a pee incident in a month. She is now allowed in the bedroom without supervision and we’re not shutting the bathroom door anymore. The toy of the day has been the mouse on wheels that Gma-Gpa got her for Christmas. She drug it out of her basket last night. It rolls really fast if you pull it backward and then push it forward.
TV: Fell asleep during our taped-watching of NCIS. The State of the Union Address meant no Criminal Minds. No McGee and No Dr. Reid….a sad week…
Fitness: Killer workouts on Monday and today. Will probably go back tomorrow. Joey worked out with his friend (and drill-instructor) Wesley. He keeps crying every time he coughs.
I wish Shelli didn’t always look pissed when I take a pic. I also don’t get many “in motion” photos in the winter. The house is on 60*. She ain’t moving.
So many toys, so little time…
