Enjoying the calm

After a storm comes a calm – Matthew Henry

In an attempt to adjust my attitude towards winter, I was thinking about things I love about winter. One thing I love is the calm that finally sets in after the holidays and the new year has begun. It’s a very peaceful time of year. This year is going to be another busy year, full of lots of excitement, so I think I’m truly enjoying the calm a bit more than usual.

Dave purchased a new TV this past weekend, it’s so awesome! I’m very much looking forward to spending a long weekend, relaxing, reading, doing whatever, and watching football on the new TV. Yes, I realize it’s only Tuesday, but with a long weekend to look forward to, it’s hard not to want this week to fly by!

I made a list of 100 things to do in the next 100 days about a month or so ago and I’m happy to report that I am checking things off my list like it’s my job! I’m not sure when I became such a list person (and a nerd), but they keep me in check and its a good excuse to use pretty paper and pens to write things down.

Enjoy your Tuesday!


We are living in a computer world…

…and I am a computer girl!

As I was online shopping tonight, my computer decided it was a great time to inform me he was having some issues. Turns out my battery isn’t charging, my power adapter works fine, my battery will charge in another computer, there is some kind of disagreement between my computer, adapter, and my battery. So I can use my computer as long as I find another way to charge the battery. Obviously this is just a temporary solution and I won’t be able to waste hours on my computer. I didn’t realize how addicted I was to my computer until I realized I’m going to have to find other ways to use up my time without mush use of a computer.

Good thing I just came up with 100 goals for myself to be completed in the next 100 days. Maybe I’m starting my new years resolutions earlier, but I’m trying to be more organized and writing stuff down helps we actually get things done. I have a few (one very big!) goals in the next 100 days I would like to complete, so I thought why not add about 95 more to work on. Expect a full on presidential address when my 100 days in complete!

I’m going to Mexico in 2 days! Last wedding of the year. Enjoy the cold my friends (or enjoyable but not Mexico weather to my Cali peeps), I will be lying on the beach, drink in my hand, deciding whether I should stick with a PC or get a Mac. Can’t wait!
