Notes from the last few days:

One thing I did manage to scratch off my to-do list over the vacay was "finish my cardigan"! Sure, it took seven months and my shoulder seams are crappy, but it actually fits. It's even symmetrical! I've worn it in public! My first pieced project. I see more sweaters in my future...

We watched a lot of movies over the vacation: Shaun of the Dead (loved it), Shrek II (twice), Anchorman (ok if you're in the proper frame of mind), Starsky & Hutch (ditto) I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (Clive is a hottie, but what was he thinking?).

Twenty-three weeks til the wedding. I woke up at 2:30 a.m. last night and couldn't get back to sleep thinking about all I had to do to get ready. I felt a little overwhelmed. I know, one piece at a time.

The bathroom is way behind schedule, but the floor is almost done, the last big item. Came out pretty durn nice for my first try at laying tile if I do say so myself. I tried to channel Martha as much as I could.

It's hard being back at work. I think my heaven will have no alarm clocks. But in some ways I'm glad for the routine. I also went to weight class today for the first time in two weeks and the instructor kicked my ass--it hurt so good.

Gotta get ready for writers group tonight. Oh joy!

This blog entry made me laugh out loud - and in the right places! I needed that. Thanks for your wit. I think YOU should replace Nina Totenberg when she retires, actually.
