Blog, blog, blog

Today, I was accused of not blogging enough by someone who hasn't blogged at all this year (*cough* Katy *cough*) So now I'm posting for no good reason at all, so I apologize to anyone else reading this (hi Mom!) because it's gonna be boring. To be fair, though, I don't have a tonne of time to blog I'm stupid busy with work and drum lessons and finishing up my last two courses and trying to be healthy.

EDP is currently away snowboarding in Austria with the same fellow we met up with in Vienna in the fall.  So far, it would appear that he is still in one piece. Which is good, because as I pointed out to EDP, he's worth way more alive to me than dead. And I don't mean that in a sentimental, lovey-dovey way. I mean in a purely monetary way. I'm not the beneficiary on ANYTHING at all and he pays the rent around here. I had hoped to use this as an opportunity to finish off getting rid of 101 things.  As of right now, I'm at 68 things. Earlier today, I was around 60, I think? I'm actually way past 101 already but I tend to forget to mark down my ticks or I count a whole bunch of stuff as only one or two things. I purged and organized our second floor a few weeks ago but I've lacked the energy/motivation to do the other floors. But, we could move RIGHT NOW and I'd pack and take every single thing on our second floor. Which is pretty good, if you ask me.

Speaking of moving, we've started a semi-serious search for a house. Yesterday, Tracey (our realtor) took me on a grand tour of a bunch of places that are currently on the market. And I definitely fell in love with one. It's a century home, which is what EDP and I both long for. Sadly, it got an offer late last week so it's probably not going to work out for us. Though, the offer is conditional on sale of property so it could still fall through. So that kept me pretty busy yesterday.

And then, today, I've been a cleaning MACHINE. I did the entire house, tossing a few more things here and there and blaring a bunch of Rolling Stone's Top 500 songs. I'm listening to Bohemian Rhapsody (#163) right now.

Oh, and for all you nosy Parkers (this post is currently the third most popular on my blog), I'm embarking on one of Things I haven't divulged this week.  I guess I technically started it last week but the real work starts this week. Though, if you're my Mom, Amy or EDP, you know what it is.

And now, it's off to Shoppers where they have toilet paper for half price. EDP can't stop me buying half a dozen packages when he's in Austria!!!

P.S. Bohemian Rhapsody is now over and I've moved on to Folsom Prison Blues but it appears to be some kind of dance remix.


  1. You're my blogging hero! If I could blog from my phone I would be WAY better at it... at least, that's my excuse this week ;)

  2. Folsom Prison Blues has been made into a dance remix? Ew. I'm not even clicking on that last link, and you can't make me.
