and, today is all about "b"

Budgeting, budgeting, and more budgeting.  It's amazing how putting restrictions on myself and staying within limits actually reduces anxiety.

Busting & Bruising--as in, my knee, the same one I fell on 3 times last winter.  Tripped trying to carry a ream of paper and a bunch of other office supplies up the stairs to my apartment.  Good one!

Birthday!  It's Dawn's birthday today, hurray!

Banter--crazy back and forth between my friends about, of all things, early 90s Paula Abdul.

Bed--where I'm going now.

this post brought to you by the letter "c"

Today was all about:

Cool (super-cool) hand painted red (crimson to stay with the "c" theme) sock yarn gifted to me by Jen.
Coffee (did I mention that?)
Cat (my sweet Zoe) cuddling
Compliments--unsolicited, at random--from two separate acquaintances I haven't seen in about a month about how good my hair looks.  Thanks Pam at hush!
Crashing.  Now.

nothing is certain, except...

Had my Federal Income taxes finished before 7 a.m. this morning.  Thanks IRS for sending me $1642 of my money back!

(every penny of which I am going to spend responsibly.)

$500 to savings
$1000 to pay bills
$142 for fun

lazy sunday...

...much needed.

Slept in.

Read 2/3 of "The Road" and I like it WAY more than I had expected.

Watched 2 Netflix movies--"Children of Heaven" & "The International".

Finished 12 long rows of cable knitting on my current project (which is a secret due to gift giving plans).

Made reservations to go to Farmicia for Restaurant Week next week--yay!

Coveted many things at etsy.

All in all, a super-good day.

what not to wear.

Inspired by the show, I had a purge/organize session today--two full shopping bags full of clothes for donation, space in the closet, and an empty drawer. :-)
