Today I am pondering whether or not big girls can wear “hip slings”. I hate carrying things with me but I don’t know if I can commit. Craftster has a great tutorial. I could wear it to the bins!
Things have been going quite well up in Portlandia. I almost feel like I shouldn’t say anything to jinx it. Blair is awesome. Our kitchen is almost done being remodeled. The sun has started coming out lately, I may not have to work Saturdays as often. I have been going to the gym at least three times a week. I have lost about 15 pounds. My raspberry cane didn’t die and is sprouting little green leaves. I have daffodils in my yard. You get the picture right?
I started a book journal so that I can record books that I have read with little reviews. I was using librarything but I used up my free space and I just don’t care to pay. I think I may start posting up little reviews here as well. I just haven’t quite found my rhythm with this little blog.

I caught them in the act! This is what happens when you come home early from work
Things here are back to normal. My foot is trying to fall off. It goes along with Li’s face and neck having the plague. It is making me limp around. I finally got around to brewing my kombucha today. I hope that I did it ok. I am so impatient so I may have not waited for the tea to cool enough. I was pleased to see that the scoby had made two scoby babies!! They are weird and slimy. It will be about eight days till I can try it. I am just worried I will kill it. I have been getting new music from the new gal at work and I am trying to make her be my friend. I think it is working. Once music is exchanged it means they think you are cool right? I haven’t been reading much since I got back. We switched our bedroom in to what was once B’s office and it looks great. It is like living in a scoop of mint chip ice cream. I want to redecorate but can’t since we are way over budget the last couple months. I can walk around the room and not hurt myself. I consider that success.
I got more yarn for the secret present I am making li and judar but have not been working on her giant scarf. (sorry!) I also made a square for the baby blanket we are making for our coworker. It is ok but not as cool as if I would have remembered sooner. Yup I am ready for the weekend and it is Tuesday, but my weekend starts on Thurs. so that isn’t too far. Still not sure about the fourth. I am thinking about staying in since the dogs totally freak out.
So I am going to california in june. I will take the dogs and hopefully!!! I can convince someone (C, H, K?) to keep an eye on the birds, cats and house. I can tell it has been long enough since I have driven down there because I am excited for the road trip. I hopefully can convince Blair to go with me and listen to Torchwood audio books!!! I will finally be able to get all my stuff out of my grandparents house and bring it back up here. Not like I have anywhere to put it, oh well.
On the gym front, I have been going regularly for a week. Today I don’t really want to go but I am going to go before I will let myself go to the library. I also think I will take the dogs for a quick walk. It doesn’t decrease the Elsa crazy but I like to pretend it does. I think I have lost about three pounds so far. That is without changing my eating habits much. I did stop drinking this week and so far it isn’t too bad. It will get harder as the weather gets warmer and I will start wanting mucho beer. I think I will have to brew a lot of iced tea to get through. I am going to try and cut back on my soda/energy intake as well. It is like crack so we shall see how that goes.
Tonight I am going to go see Larissa at Twisted. She will be talking about her new book and I am excited because I very rarely get to go to these things. They are generally on Sat or Tues evening when I have to work.
It is nice to have you back! Somehow the update I did messed up a bunch of things. I had 70 spam comments, I don’t think I even have 70 readers! I am a bad updater.
I think part of it is that I have yet to figure out how to post photos over here. I will work on it I promise.
It’s tiki all the time over here. With a few final touches the tiki bar is done for this year. Next year we have a few ideas to make it fresh. Furniture would be nice. Also next year I am hoping to have new artwork to hang up on the walls and have a mini open studio. That would entail having the basement not just being for cats pooping.
Check out the awesome!
