random is my favorite post title
~i did a bit of scrapbooking yesterday. hooray. a very little bit. apparently my scrapbooking ADD is still in full force as I struggle to finish one project and move on to start another.
~i've also discovered that I LOVE Cosmo Cricket paper and Crate paper as well. I guess they are more 'confirmations' than discoveries though since i've known of both for a while but it seems the past few times i've gone scrapbook shopping, i come home with these brands. yum. so good.
~our TV had been dying a slow death over the past 4-6 weeks (or longer). it finally got to the point of complete annoyance and off to the store we went on Saturday evening.
~lucky me spent quite a few hours on Mother's Day disassembling the old TV/entertainment center setup, dusting away the gigantic dust bunnies and then setting up and installing the new (very purty) TV. I am somewhat proud to say that we have finally joined the HD flat screen generation. I am even happier to say goodbye to that 900 pound TV we used to have.
~oh and i haven't had the opportunity to even watch 5 minutes of ANYTHING I want to watch on that TV yet...despite being the "brains" in the house to do all the cable connecting. i will halt my complaint there, although trust me when I say I could go on.
~i posted my old (and supercute) entertainment center on craigslist and received 3 email inquiries in one hour. hooray. i hate to part with it actually but there's no where to put it. it's cute with doors and it's RED!!!
~my reading has been slacking, but not for lack of want. of the past 3 nights, I have fallen asleep @ the same time as E instead of taking part in my usual night-owl tactics which is when I get my reading done. soooo sleepy. hoping to get back on track tonight.
~i ran 3 days last week. i was so motivated. i went back to WW on friday too. for having missed about 6 weeks and sort of falling off the wagon, i was only up 2.4 pounds. the downside is that on Thursday, after 3 days of short runs, my back flared up and let me know it was NOT happy. the pain is still lingering. i'm pretty bummed. i feel really old.
