It’s been quite a dramatic week, and I haven’t felt like posting when I get home from work. I’ve also been putting a lot of thought into what I want to do with my writing this year. I quit writing for the Examiner website because I really don’t have time to do what they’ve asked for as their new requirements. I’m making a TINY bit of money from views on my food blog, so I’m just trying to figure out where I want to go from here.
So, in totally random order:
Frugality: We’ve spent about $25 in takeout already this month. Poor planning this past week brought on by not being able to go out last weekend contributed greatly to that, as did work stress. We were at $55 for groceries, because we had to buy coffee, so I anticipate that we’ll be under this week:).
Fitness: Hit the gym once this week. I’m a little bummed about that, but again with the stress thing…when we’ve had free time, we’ve wanted to spend it catching up on sleep. Next week, we intend to hit the gym Monday, Thursday, and Friday at least.
Knitting: Just finished an AWESOME gift for our friend in Iraq. I’ll show a picture once he gets it…he reads the blog, so I don’t want to spoil it:). I ripped the bell-sleeved shrug. I just didn’t like the way it was turning out. I have a hat pattern in queue that I’m going to start on next, I think. And I made great headway on Mom’s skinny scarf this week while our friend Amy was over:).
Grad School: Had to read two novels this past week (which was a major source of stress). No novels this week, just some supplementary information that I don’t think will take very long.
Shelli: adorable, wonderful, fabulous, and perfect in every way, as usual.
Apparently Joey got a hold of the camera while we were sleeping…
Our Taxes are done (hooray!). I’m getting a Vita-Mix with some of the refund money!!!! Watching MST3K. Will be knitting soon…
