Out of the seven things listed below, I've accomplished one.

I have however, byob bowled, been inappropriate at Frijoles, went to see some old friends last night, fell into a time warp, worked everyday...

I was stressed out about it until I read my horoscope in the City Paper today:

I'm definitely not encouraging you to go to YouTube and watch the music video of the hamster eating popcorn on a piano. you've got more important things to do, and shouldn't waste you time on trivial diversions. So get down to business! Commit your whole being to the crucial work you have ahead of you! Don't waver from your laser-focus intention! April Fool! The truth is that if you want to succeed in the coming days, you will have to stay loose, indulge in at least a few blithe diversions, and not be a stern taskmaster demanding perfection. So go watch the hamster. It's at

I watched the video, it is kind of funny.

United Blood, here I come.

Things I need to do before Richmond Friday:

-Wash my dog.
-Go to Petsmart so I can get my dog presents so she doesn't get upset her Mommy will be gone all weekend.
-Clean my apartment.
-Get a disposable camera.
-Pay all bills, to be worry free.
-Tie up loose ends at work.

Seems simple enough.

I feel like everyone is going through a rough time right now in one
 way or another. To see most everyone struggle makes me feel a little better about my situation & grateful for my job & feeling secure for the moment. 

Some friends came up & hung around for a little bit last week. On my b
ookshelf I have a book called " 14,000 things to be happy about ". My grandmother gave it to me. Some of the things listed in this book: doing your job like no one else could do it, piggy banks, water beds, fireworks, a solo drive down unexplored lanes, tolerable temperatures, Google, ignorance being bliss, no loose ends, old records, used bikes, toddlers' vocabulary, the first day of sandals, the sunny side of living, what you can learn from the Food network, decorating a bachelorette house exactly as you want...

My friend declared at least half the things in this book  are "not real things" & I could kind of see where he was coming from. But the thought was cute coming from my gra
ndmother. The last one on that preview list is totally true. Decorating my apartment is on going, but right now I feel like I have the ultimate set up. Laurren donated her old TV to me because it has a remote & a DVD player in it. True Luxury. So I set it up across from my bed, and didn't take my TV down that is at the foot of my bed. Right now it looks like I'm a crazy TV lady, but until I figure out proper use for both, it'll do. 

Here are some "real things" I have to be happy about:
Homemade Craft Factories

Dogs, familiar or new, when they cuddle up next to you, when they take on human like qualities
Unexpected visitors & slumber parties

& Something to look forward to.

I can't wrap my head around the fact that it's already March.
Time goes faster as you get older.

Pros & Cons List:

+ Got Dolce Vita Sandals from Urban which are still full price on the website, on sale at the store. Win.
+I gave Sassy a bath today, and she didn't love it, but she didn't hate it. Now she smells and looks wonderful.
+  Figured out why I haven't gotten my tax returns yet. It's fixable. 

-I have no motivation to clean my apartment, and it's needs to be done today, before I do anything else.
-  I won't be seeing any of my $2200 tax return for another 2-4 weeks. I need that money for a new car before the wheels fall off mine.
