I thought it might be good to check in with some of the new year's resolutions. Except that might make me grumpy. Maybe next week. I am sad (okay, not really) to report that we are abandoning the Cook through Nigella challenge. The liver and onions was the last straw for Justin. We'll be picking a new book next week. But now I have organic calf's liver in the freezer and I'm not sure what to do with it.

So I guess that also means I need to start planning our garden. I had originally intended to take this year off. We've always gotten our seeds from this company: http://www.heirloomseeds.com. If you have another suggestion, please let me know! And I have a recommendation for a fantastic set of books if you're interested in gardening and have kids... Sunflower Houses and Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots by Sharon Lovejoy. These are the kinds of books that make you overflow with creative ideas and want to surround yourself with beauty. Give yourself a treat and order one today!

1. Organize the pictures still in envelopes. Organize the pictures still in envelopes. Hey. Organize the pictures still in envelopes.
2. Finish sorting the junk drawer stuff. Figure out where it all goes.
3. Clean off the bookshelf in the bedroom. Move it somewhere else.
4. Pack up the piles of old clothes for Goodwill.
5. Scrabook. (Fellow challengees... please feel free to nag me about this as well.)
Wow, volunteering for Barack has been a surprise. Do you know I volunteered for the Kerry campaign 3 times and no one ever contacted me? In three days I've been contacted at least 5 times. And apparently there's going to be a martini party soon. Bonus!

Unfortunately, this snow day caught me unprepared and the pantry quite bare. Even barer than normal because I went through a cleaning frenzy yesterday and threw away several thousand boxes of stale carbohydrates and all items of questionable origin and/or expiration. So I'm thinking it might be nutella and Ritz crackers for lunch. Mmmmmm.... doesn't that sound delicious? I could probably throw a fried egg on top. On second thought, it might be better to save the fried egg idea for dinner.

At 5:30 I was still sitting on the couch wondering when everyone else would wake up. When my husband finally arose, he asked "why didn't you come to bed again last night?" and then quickly said something like... oh yeah, you're flying tomorrow. I asked if he thought if I left right now, could I drive to Texas by Friday evening. He considered for a moment and then pointed out that I haven't slept in three days so that I would probably only make it to Ohio before I crashed. He didn't think the case of Diet Mt. Dew I keep hidden in my car would help.
Did I ever mention that I don't really like to fly?

Life has been a little bit, ummm... hectic lately. Last week Charlie was sick which means I had to miss work and then make-up work and in those scenarios, our lives always delve quickly into complete chaos. Socks strewn every which way, dishes piled up into the yard, toilet paper unrolled through every room in the house, you get the idea.
