To My Neglected Blog:

I’ve been rather slacking on my posts lately, but for good cause. Mostly because I’ve been sick. I woke up with the worst sore throat on Sunday morning, and have been battling this cold ever since. My only hope is that it’s gone before Friday (when I’m in New York). The second reason… I no longer have my laptop, so posting while lounging on the couch isn’t an option for me anymore (ok, well theoretically, I guess I could post from my pocket pc, but come on now, really, who has the time?)I’ve been doing quite a bit of work around the house the past few days… re-caulked some cracks on my walls (where the brick was pulling away from the wall), glued down the infinitely annoying linoleum that has been peeling up in the bathroom for the past few months, bought a new coffee table and end tables that required some assembly, so Ben & I put those together (ok, so it was mostly Ben, but I cooked dinner, so I think that’s a fair trade off!!).I’ve also been playing with my new toys quite a bit. Ben got me an IPOD for xmas, my brother got me a pocket pc, and my parents got me gps to go with the pcp! I’ve been loading new programs, new songs, etc. My neighbors have been “working on” the place next door. This, of course, involves making loud noises with hammers and power tools. Apparently it was a rental for some time and was just completely trashed. The people who bought it are the same ones who I bought my condo from… so “improvements” include hastily laying down linoleum over existing stuff (instead of pulling it up), wiring the garbage disposal and dishwasher to the same plug, and having them BOTH run off the switch (so in order to run the diswasher, you have to unplug the garbage disposal and flip the switch on), fixing a leak with packing tape, etc. Besides the fact that I’m sick, and would rather not deal with the annoyance of pounding hammers, I have a slight chip on my shoulder about these people. (as they were supposed to come fix all this stuff, but conviently “forgot” on the day of the appt. Moving on…One of my christmas presents from my parents this year was a mini-crock pot. I took it out of the box a few days ago, and have already made some really yummy soups and pasta sauces in it :) I’ve decided it’s my new “left over eater” as well. I need to do laundry, pack a suitcase, do some vacuuming, return some stuff to Target, and plan out a few *hot spots* for new york, all before 8pm tonight. Phew.. if I get all of this done, i’m gonna be one busy girl today!
