16 January 2007

I've been staying pretty true to my word about not being on the computer when I'm home with Emily. I'm amazed that she's been staying off it too. That was what I was hoping for. It was a good weekend. Since I'm off work on Mondays, I consider that day half of the weekend. The first part of Sunday was spent cleaning out cabinets and re-caulking the tub. Emily and I went out shopping afterwards and out to Cheeburger Cheeburger for dinner. It's one of her favorite places. Did I say I went off my diet big time this weekend? Let me go back and say I had a banana split for dessert on Saturday followed by a bag of Dave and Thomas chocolate drizzle popcorn. At Cheeburger Cheeburger I had a juicy cheeburger and fries followed by ice cream at home with Milky Way topping and whipped cream. I think I was pretty good yesterday, except for the popcorn I had at the movies. Today starts another week of my usual...lots of salads and veggies. Hopefully it will balance out. Maybe. Anyway, yesterday I tackled the closet in my guest room. I can't describe all the stuff I had crammed in there on the floor and shelf on top. You could hardly close the door. It's mostly empty now. I'm one of those people whose house looks totally neat until you open a closet or look in the basement. You'd think two different people lived there. I'm determined to clean it all up. All these things haven't been hard to do, yet I've procrastinated doing them forever. So I'm proud of myself for finally getting some things done that I've meant to do for a long, long time.

We went to see Freedom Writers at the movies. We absolutely loved it. I think it only got so-so reviews, and there have been many films like this one, but I'd recommend it to anyone. The theatre, Muvico, was absolutely packed. I guess a lot of people go to the movies on holidays.

I don't mean for my posts to be all about the things I do around my house. Getting things accomplished here clears my mind. I wonder if I'll ever get to the point that everything's done. What a concept. I could just laze around cause there'd be nothing to do but basic cleaning. I'd like to find out!

Well, it's off to work for me on this very windy day. Hope it's a good one for everyone else.

Wow! Sounds like a super fun weekend. Glad you had a good time. Of course, there is nothing wrong with eating junk food to your heart's content on the weekends. It all evens out, remember?

Being intimately familiar with your house, I find the closets and especially the basement amusingly "relaxing". Those area would be almost "normal" if it weren't for the rest which is so nicely coordinated. //Woman with the random shower tiles and more clutter than she knows what to do with.
