Update post: 101 Things
On Friday, mom, me and E drove to Atlanta for a book signing, so I crossed that one off the list...albeit, barely. The signing was scheduled to start at 7:30pm and let me preface this by saying ATLANTA TRAFFIC SUCKS...that is coming from an experienced city driver. That city is flippin' nuts. Anyway, the author, of all people, gets into a fender-bender just in front of the store which delays the start 40 minutes. She was ok despite a few air bag burns on her arms and she was a great speaker for having just been in a car wreck. Normally the delay would not have been an "issue", however we were driving home afterwards...and I live a little over 3 hours from Atlanta. I got home at 1:30am after ANOTHER traffic delay just across the TN border. If we take away the driving, the rest of the trip was awesome. We went to IKEA, Publix and Archiver's while there. Hooray!
On Saturday, I had the privilege (inside joke) to go scrapbooking at the local scrapbook store. I made a few layouts...which is usually what you do at a crop, so that's a good thing. Anyway, so far I have submitted 6 layouts for publishing...hopefully at least 1 gets accepted, but I fear I need to submit more like 300 in order for 1 to get selected...so I'll continue working on that goal.
Before we left for Atlanta on Friday, I made a quick stop in at WW for my weekly weigh-in...only to be told I stayed the SAME!!! Argh. Normally this wouldn't be so frustrating, but since it was the equivalent of being on Week 2...well, I was not pleased. I plan to run a couple days this week which should secure me a loss on Friday...at least I hope so.
I completed my iTunes mix of 101 of my favorite songs. You can find the mix here.
I attempted to work on making my bed 7 days in a row. Sunday, check. Monday...nope...E decided to sleep until 7:20am which is when we usually leave the house, so needless to say, we were running late and the bed was left unmade. Starting over on Thursday.
I finished the book I was reading, which gets logged as book #1 of the 100 books I plan to read. Gasp! I'm on to book 5 of my Summer Reading List (which will be book #2 for this project).
Right now it looks like I'll be going to VA for Memorial Day weekend and there are plans to go to a pick-your-own patch (#49) and can some strawberry preserves (#50).
I'm also suffering from some severe iPhone envy lately...running numbers and calling AT&T this afternoon to see what kind of discount a bundled package gets since we already have home phone & internet with them. It still may not work in the budget, but I refuse to give up.
