Friday Update

First, business: Don't forget to enter the giveaway! I would love for YOU to be the winner! :)

Two weeks into the new year! How exciting! And this week was, if possible, easier than the first week, so I think this is a good sign. :)

How I'm doing on all my resolutions:

~ Still no live music... I was supposed to go Irish contra dancing last Saturday but it turned into a girl's night in with Becka since I was feeling lazy and all ice-cream-and-chick-flick-y. :) I do have a lead on a local concert coming up, though!

~ I'm still being good about blogging... I generally post to Taleia & Company on Mondays, Wednedays, and Fridays, and occasionally over the weekend. I also got my first giveaway up and running! Check it out! So far I've also kept my resolution to blog once a week on Girl in Skirt... but just barely! I need to figure out a better, easier way to take picts. *sigh* And I still haven't done a thing with EdResource except think about it - although I did start an "EdResource" folder in my favorites tab and start collecting resources! Good thing I didn't put a time limit on this goal!

~ No progress yet on a road trip, although since everybody is heading back to school that brings "weekend trips to see college buddies" back into play.

~ The hair is not getting done this week... I'm thinking the week after next is going to be the week, since I'll have more money then. I need to find a good conditioning treatment in the meantime, cuz it's pretty unpretty right now.

~ No progress on the money-saving front... I need a paycheck to save! :)

~ I still haven't written any poetry... I need to get with it, since I'm already two weeks behind!

~ I have bought magazines, but they're all mags that I've read before, so not really fulfilling the world-expanding mind-stretching role I had hoped for. It's ok- I've still got a few weeks left...

~ As you can see in my giveaway post, I did crochet a new pattern this month! Isn't it pretty?

~ I'm enjoying my "self date" right now! I'm holed up at one of my favorite places, Panera Bread, just my computer and I... just had an incredibly salmon sandwhich, found and ordered a movie I've been hunting for all week (and got a used copy for under $3! Does it GET any better than this?!?), and am seriously contemplating coffee... or driving a little further downtown and picking up my fav green tea. :)

~ D.C... *sigh* I swear I love you, and I am coming. You'll just have to take it on faith.

~ Maybe I'll combine a trip to D.C. with a kids-night-out... fulfil two resolutions with one effort? Lol... I'm really not stressing over this resolution, as I've been home all month and we're all spending tons of time together. That is the point, right?

~ I haven't started reading the 100 Greatest Novels yet, but I did print off the list and highlight the ones I've already read.

~ Ditto the resolution to watch the 100 Greatest Movies! And I've watched 15 percent of them already! Isn't that cool?

~ I'm determined to start writing again... I think I'll be better at this when I start my new job, since I'll have blocks of free time I can "devote" (right now I keep getting distracted).

~ I was doing well on my resolution to wash and cleanse my face each night, but I've sort of slacked off the last few nights, and I can feel it. Again, I think I'll be better at this once the new job starts since I'll be going to bed earlier and be less tired.

~ I've kind of sort of come up with a short-story premise that I'd like to turn into a short story for Connections... I'll try to keep you posted.

~ I have done nothing with my website. Again, I'm glad I didn't put a time limit on this one!

~ I'm actually a day behind on my reading plan to read through the Bible in a year, but I will get caught up tonight, I swear! And if you're one of the folks doing this with me... keep on me!

So... yup! That's my life in a nutshell lately!
