It came to my attention yesterday (Thanks KATZABELLAMAMA!) that I have not blogged here in over a week!
I'm usually a once-a-day blogger... so I don't blame her for being concerned!
I'm FINE! ... Just fairly busy right now with cleaning my condo (which is starting to look like a SHOW HOME!) and Zumba and spending time with Joe!
Last night I went grocery shopping and cooked up a double batch of turkey meat sauce and rice pasta! (So I'll be eating that for a while! I think it made 8 servings! SCORE!)
Speaking of my condo... I'd be remiss not to mention that the new state of my condo feels like it's becoming sterile to me - unlived in. Or like I'm ready to move out! Granted... I can SEE all of the things that we have removed and I am not missing any of them one bit... (even my shoe tree... my beloved shoe tree... how come I am not missing it beside the front door?) And this exercise has me rethinking every move I make... from making breakfast, to putting my make-up AWAY before I leave in the morning! It is definitely teaching me new habits!
.... What do they say? It takes 21 days to create a new habit? ...so maybe I still have a couple weeks to go... but it's happening, I can feel it!
Oh, what we do for LOVE!
... small price to pay, really... for the happiness of my relationship! (If we are not willing to bend slightly to accomodate the partners in our lives maybe we should rethink living WITH a partner!)
Yesterday we had a short coffee chat with a couple of friends that we are going backcountry camping with. They are hoping to bring their new puppy (10 months old!) along! This could be an interesting trip! Not sure what Joe will do if the dog is the reason we have to turn around (or something like that!) There are so many other provisions one must make for a pet in the woods, and neither Joe or I are sure what those things are!
I guess we just gotta try it out and hope for the best!
And, only 3 weeks to go before ZUMBA CONVENTION!!!
YA YA YA!
I confirmed that I will be in a room with 3 other chicas. Oh boy! Shower and mirrors will be in high demand! LOL I better get packing ASAP... running out of time!
