So many things to say. So little time. I bought a lovely little notebook this weekend that I am writing various ideas and general junk that pops into my head, whenever it pops. I’m always hearing quotes or reading about movies and I think to myself “that’s cool, got to write that down.” But usually I wouldn’t, and then I’d forget. Now I have the notebook for instant recording. I just hope it doesn’t turn into a Ted Kaczinski-type notebook. If I start to sound weirder than I usually do, please come and take it away.
Since I got my notebook, I have written down a bunch of new quotes that I have added to the quote page. Most of them are with a friend in mind. They need to put them self first and won’t.
Now the big news. I’m going on a 6 month clothing fast! It started April 15th (had nothing to do with my taxes which KPMG hasn’t finished yet). Besides needing to rein in on my most compulsive habit, I thought it might help my ever increasing vanity. This whole working out thing is really having an impact and I just love buying new clothes to show it off. Got to stop.
I know what you are saying to yourself, you are saying, “Heather, being the good Catholic that you are..” ZAP! (you were struck by lightening.) Ok, what you were going to say before God stopped you from uttering blasphemy was, why didn’t I just give up clothes (buying them) for Lent. It’s only 40 days? Because I hadn’t thought of it then and 6 months is better for my financial position.
So, if you see new clothes on the clothes page, they aren’t new (you can check with Patrick).
Patrick and I have implemented a new process..”What is Heather wearing today?” Patrick takes a picture of me as I am walking out the door for work. This is much more simple than setting aside an entire weekend to play fashion model. This way I can save my weekends for…uh…going to have to think about this.
Oh and BTW I have added a new link. My To Do page. Theory is if I expose all my To Do’s to you, when I put them on the list and when they actually got done, I’ll do them faster for fear of ridicule. It’s a theory. I actually stole the concept from Disgruntled House Wife.com. She has a page for frivolous new purchases. There has been anything new in a while because as she says,
“This should probably be Stupid Crap I Bought Last Month. As I suspected, making myself publicly own up to my shopping shame really has curbed my habit. Twice since I started this page I’ve abandoned cartsful of nonsense in Target.”
Lets hope it works for me.
