Another week

I don't mean for this to be a weekly blog, but time seems to be getting away from me. Between work and trying to get things straightened up around here, I always seem to run out of time at the end of the night. So here's what I've been doing this week.

First, The Biggest Loser. Alli and Kelly made it into the final and the 2 boys were below the yellow line. How Cool Is That? I have to say, Kelly REALLY surprised me. I didn't think she had a snowballs chance of making it. I think Alli will be the Biggest Loser. She is determined. I can't believe how good she looks. And she did almost all of it at home. I voted to keep Mark there. I love Roger, but I felt like the elimination was crap. The contestants should have been able to vote off who they wanted like they always have done. All the "surprises" this season have been weird. So I voted for Roger cause I know that's what the contestants would have done. Next week will be interesting.

I also discovered Netflix. This is another reason I haven't been posting that much. In the last 2 weeks I have watched 4 movies. That is a record for me. The last movie I saw in a theater was Titanic. LOL. I just can't justify paying that much for a movie, so I'm always years behind on watching them. So far I've seen Knocked Up, The Wedding Date, Enchanted, and The Darjeeling Limited. The last one was wierd, but I enjoyed them all. It's hard not to think you have to get them back right away, so I try to watch them quickly. I need to start pacing myself.

I still haven't done any scrapbooking. I need to go take some new pics to get my juices flowing again. The pressure of all the scrapbook stuff staring at me is starting to get to me, haha.

Today I was off work, thank God. I am really trying to like this new store, but I don't. The majority of the people are good workers and want the store to succeed, and I am trying for their sake. The area is ghetto, the customers are rude and annoying, the sales are in the pits, and the supervisors are expecting miricles. I just don't think I have it in me to turn it around. I'm not sure it can be done, to be honest.

I didn't really do anything today. Some shopping at Target, and I got my stuff from the Little Scrapbook Store, mostly paper, Urban Lily, and some Prima flowers. Maybe that will get my mojo back. I also picked up some cute stuff from the $1.00 bins at Target. They had a surprising selection of scrapbook stuff there. After that I came home, ate a package of jelly bellys, and watched a marathon of Clean House.

I have never seen this show before, and it is very enlightning. They basically go to a home that is an organizational mess, have a yard sale, then use the proceeds to redo the rooms. (Maybe it was the precursor to Clean Sweep?). I was amazed at the things people keep and the things that they *think* thay would never part with and then pretty much cave when pressed by the host. How heavenly to have people come in, empty your house of all the crap, and then redo it. That would be my fantasy!!! That's right, no hunks for me, just a clean house with everything in its place. (Maybe the handyman could be Ty Pennington LOL!!!) Now there is a fantasy. Now I'm off to dream.......
