8 Things

Brittany at Food for Thought tagged me and since I've been such a slacker about posting my crafty projects lately I thought that was perfect timing!

My printer has been out ink and it is putting a serious cramp in my crafting style! I had no idea I relied so heavily upon it. I have three projects in the works though...does that count for something?

8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:

*Ink for the printer! haha
*Seeing Megan and fam this weekend
*The arrival of mini-Karen (she won't share the name until she's born)
*A new haircut (I stole this from Brittany but I haven't been to the salon in 8 months!)

Layers, not the dark brown.

*Not having to cook tomorrow - pizza night!
*Getting my truck fixed (Gee is 330,000+ miles tough on it?!)
*Tax refund! Woowoo!
*Redecorating the bathroom

8 Things I Did Yesterday:

*Took my mom's dog to the groomer
*Finished Ten Big Ones by Janet Evanovich (best ending scene in a book ever)
*Started Eleven on Top by JE (I'm a newly converted Stephanie Plum junkie!)
*Tried to break in some new flip flops...still trying
*Realized how annoying yahoo messenger is
*Learned how to attach the rototiller to the tractor
*Took photos of the sunset

Okay that's my uncle's place in Arizona and it was last year.

I haven't yet uploaded the pics I took last night at my house.

*Made a yummy dinner and watched it disappear - always gratifying

8 Things I Wish I Could Do:

*Fix cars

*Play a PS2 game without running my character into stuff
*Have no financial limits so I could be as generous as I want to be (you know the love languages? I'm a gift giver - want to be my friend? *wink*)
*Play piano...and maybe the cello
*Grow a few inches so I don't have to stand on my toes to put the dishes away (I'm 5'2")
* Speak Spanish fluently. After so much disuse I've forgotten a lot.
*Math. Blargh.
*Go out in public with no makeup and not feel weird about it

8 Shows I Enjoy:


*Burn Notice
*The Mentalist
*Criminal Minds
*The Office
*Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern
*Decorating Cents

These are all really good! I am 5'2" also and I love it most of the time. I also wish I was taller while reaching to put things away in my kitchen! I have to use my son's little stool! Sad!

I majorly heart Decorating Cents. I hate that it is rarely on anymore.
There is something wonderful after you've enjoyed a homecooked meal, isn't there.
Have a great weekend!

5'2"?! Really? Reading things like this on other people's blogs are so fun because of the quirky and great things you can learn about them.

Kristy said...

I <3 you. Let's get together soon!
OH and I also enjoy castle!

Brittany said...

Thanks for playing! :)

I'm 5'2" also... putting dishes away does suck (as well as getting chicken stock off of the top shelf at the grocery store!).
