I’m avoiding …

laundry. I think laundry should do itself. No, I revise that. I think I should have a washer and dryer in the apartment, and then I wouldn’t drag the sorting of the clothes which then have to be hauled down the hallway, down the elevator, down another hall and into the laundry room where I *always* have to add more money to our laundry card. What a rip off!! *sigh*

I bought a granny cart today at the mall that houses the Farmer’s Market – it’s plain black (Brad’s request – I really wanted the polka-dot one!!) and works beautifully. My arms don’t hurt today! I’m trying to figure out dinner – I think we’ve had chicken every day this week … yep! Well, we might have had fish one day. I was going to buy steaks at the market, but they were just too expensive and I couldn’t justify them. I really want to make Brad and really nice dinner, but I don’t want chicken again! Maybe fish again? But we’ve had too much pasta too – fish and sweet potatoes? Maybe I can make a nice white sauce. Or wine sauce =)

Tomorrow, although I work 12 hours, I have something to look forward to. My friend Mary Anne and her boyfriend are coming down to see us!!! Mary Anne was my best friend in grade 9 when I moved to Kingston, and then she moved to Belgium during that summer. We’ve stayed close and although we don’t talk nearly as often as I’d like (I’m not so good at staying in touch!!) we can always chat like nothing’s any different. Like last night – we managed to say the same thing at the same times on a few occasions and, when talking about calculus (don’t ask), we both thought of the same example. It’s quite bizarre, but I love our friendship and wish we saw more of one another. So, needless to say, I’m super super excited to be seeing her and go out for some good food. Wuhoo!!!

Question of the day: What on earth does the song “I am the Walrus” by the Beatles actually MEAN?!? I am the eggman, I am the eggman, I am the walrus? Am I missing something?!?

Dear Kim.

You are the most inconsistent blogger in the whole wide world (although I’m sure this can’t be completely true!). Please learn to post at least three times a week – an amount that will likely hold people’s attention, unlike 1 – 2 times per week. This is a completely unacceptable amount (**please note, this statement is not true for everyone, I really just wanted to post more than that**).


In response to this letter, I have crafted the following blog entry.

Hello world!

So it seems that I’m not posting very regularly. Funny how that works, eh? In school, I’m so busy I don’t have time to think, and once I’m done for the summer, it seems that I have so little to do, that my brain actually shuts down and I spend an inordinate amount of time staring off into space. Or over-analyzing my cycle. Or reading my Crosswalk.com forums. Or, or, or. And lots of reading! I was going to post this on Tuesday, but I was too lazy. Tuesday was again for going to the market where I purchased the following spoils:

That’s right: romaine lettuce, a carrot, green beans, broccoli, two potatoes, a green pepper, a red pepper, bread, eggs, and a block of cheese. I still had apples left over from last week, so I didn’t need to buy those, so I only spent $16! Not too shabby! Then, when I got back from the market I did dishes (wuhoo!) and laundry (wuhoo!). And then I demolished the rest of Pay it Forward, which is an INCREDIBLE novel! For those of you who have seen the movie – THE BOOK WAS SO MUCH BETTER! It’s by Catherine Ryan Hyde, for inquiring minds.

Wednesday I worked from 6:30 – 9:30 and then 11:00 – 7:00, but I signed out at 6:30. I was set to demolish the rest of the Irresistable Revolution, but my friends needed it back as they are leading a talk on Sunday about it at our group, CommonGround.

Today, I miraculously slept until 11:30 (yes, it was fantastic!) and then got up, made lunch for Brad and myself and went to meet him at a park across from his office to have lunch together. I then cleaned like a banshee! The bathroom, the kitchen, the microwave, and vacuumed. (Does anybody else hate spelling vacuum? It’s the only work I consistently spell wrong.) Then I caught up on my Bible reading and spent the rest of the afternoon surfing the web. But here I am and it’s now time to make dinner, so off I go! Enjoy the rest of your Thursday, people! I know I will. I even have tomorrow off (wuhoo!!) so I’m getting my hair trimmed, borrowing some more books from the library, and visiting with a friend for tea =)

Tuesdays (or Thursdays, depending on my work schedule) are for …

Going to the market! Now, I had a whole huge post planned out on this topic, that was going to be complete with a picture of the items that I purchased today that I lugged home on my back, but my camera battery needs recharging (boo!!!) – so that’s that! Maybe another week I’ll play the pity-me-because-I-buy-so-many-fruits-and-veg-that-my-arms-and-back-hurt-after-I-bring-them-home game. Phew!

However, for your viewing enjoyment, I will put on some pretty flower pics that I’ve taken with the camera (thank you ‘flower’ setting!). Enjoy!
