  1. Thursday Check-In 1/22

    by , 01-22-2009 at 01:42 PM
    I gained weight, I still am not reading much. Working out is not fitting in again.

    I did get out my tin-whistle and harp and started doing those things of an evening. I'll work at keeping it up. (thanks to those who pointed out that this is NECESSARY)

    I made laundry detergent. It seems to work pretty well, except for cold/delicate. Since I have no food processor or blender, the soap chunks are pretty big. I'd just as soon not mess around with a big batch of hot ...
  2. 22nd Jan Update

    by , 01-22-2009 at 11:31 AM (Frugal Lifestyle? Can I Keep Up With Myself)
    Today I have been fairly busy, I have been up since 9ish so I could see DBF off to his first day at work in his new job.
    I wanted to go into town but as I was raining I decided against the idea. So I sorted out the post from eBay and that took a good 90mins to do, by then the rain had stopped and the skies cleared So I went into town in the end and bought some take-away trays so I can use for freezing meals and I deposited some change I had.

    Came home and started making some ...

  3. OMG! Do I have MOTHS?!

    by , 01-22-2009 at 10:30 AM
    Last week I noticed a bunch of tiny little holes in my cashmere robe. I brushed it off, thinking that they were caused by my cats (neither are de-clawed).

    Today as I was getting dressed, I noticed a tiny little hole in my favorite green cashmere cardigan. I KNOW that this wasn't done by my cats because I change into my lounge wear (aka sweats) as soon as I get home. My cats aren't anywhere near my nice clothes.

    I'm thinking I have moths. But I haven't seen anything ...
  4. Hoping for more but got less

    by , 01-22-2009 at 03:27 AM
    Well I was hoping for more from the new president, but I was very disappointed that he jumped sharply to the left today. Closing Gitmo was one of his not so smart ideas. That fuels conspiracy theory that he is friend to terrorists.Right now it looks as if he is paying back all his cronies. The 300+ million in campaign funds that he did not disclose who gave it to him that came from foreign countries, now look like terrorist payoff to free the almost 250 worst. Those who's countries do not even want ...

    Got caught up in work today, so didn't do everything just right, but still got a few things in.

    I did my 30 minutes on the treadmill. Starting to get addicted to it. I put on "What Not to Wear" or "You Are What You Eat" for motivation and then just plug along until my 30 minute mark.

    Took a shower and took a little extra pamper time to moisturize my face and style my hair. I resisted the urge to pull on jeans and actually dressed business ...
