Best Idea Ever!

Sometimes, just sometimes I get a genius idea...this is one of them!

I got this cart at one of my fav places...TJ Maxx!!!  It's been awesome!  I can carry all my groceries, laundry, and misc treasures to my 3rd floor studio with out feeling like my arms are going to fall off!

Remember this post..when I had the crazy idea of hanging a chandelier in my little studio?  Well, I found one on craigslist, drove out to a far far away home depot to pick it up then left it at my parents...only to go back the next weekend to find it installed!!!

I didn't really mind because I did offer it up to my mom and because it was being properly used, as opposed to what I was planning on doing with it...mmmph I guess it's better that they kept it.

By the way, it was only $10!

Ghost Chair

My mom and I went to Ikea this weekend and found this chair!

I was so excited when I saw it!  I love ghost chairs, but until now I had only seen them for at least $200.  Ikea: $99!  I love them because they are great for small spaces (like my studio) since they don't take up any visual space!  Now if I could only find a spot for one ... or two..  :)

Perfect Quote for 2009

*I found this in my drafts?!!!  I guess I never published it!  Oops!

Hello All!  I have not had a chance to blog much.  My Christmas break was great!  It was however too short, but when is a break ever long enough?

I was back at the office on Sunday...yes Sunday.  Since it's year end and I have an awesome job of counting (manufacturing accounting) it's a bit of a heavy load.  I will be working until late tomorrow too, but will head over to my mom's right after.

I want to spend New Years Eve (to a new decade) close to my family.  Last weekend that I was there I started thinking of New Years Eve 1999 and of how much has gone on during the last 10 years.  I was 16  Anyways, more on that next week.

So I came home today and turned on the tv (because that's the second thing I do when I walk in, the first thing being  to turn on the light) and Evan Almighty was on.  I had never completely seen it, but I have caught bits and pieces.  I think I have refused to see it because I am a big fan of Bruce Almighty.

Gosh, I love to ramble...specially when under the influence of cold medicine...yes I have a cold or the beginning of a cold.  There are about 5 people that are sick at work and since I basically have been at the office for the last 4 days...I have bound to get it!  Enough.

Here is "the quote":

Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?

-God to Evan's Wife

This year God has definitely provided me the opportunity for a lot... and for that I am thankful.

Happy 2010!

Trust Your Instict

More on the mild eye infection... I believe I had to live with the eye infection for months because I didn't voice my concerns to the doctor the first time around.  The problem with doctor appointments is that sometimes you do not get one until days after when the visible signs have gone away.  By the time I went to the doctor, the first time, the redness was completely gone.  The second time around I just drove myself there without an appointment!  Again, my eye was almost back to normal, but this time I told the doctor that it hurt and that it did not feel ok.  She almost said I was fine, until she turned my eyelids inside out and saw red bumps on one side...aha, there it was!  The proof I needed!  That's how I finally got better!

To this same point...I recommend Cancer Schmancer by Fran Drescher.

I have a thing for actor written books, I think I like them because they are an easy read :)  In this book she talks about all the doctors she had to see before her cancer was properly diagnosed and treated.  I believe she saw about 11 doctors before she got the right treatment!  I liked that she didn't give up and followed her instict and that is what saved her!

Hurray for if I could only trust myself enough to trust my own!
