here is a quick update..
i've been trying to simplify my life. and organize. all at the same time. so a of right now, i am working on my 5th bag of stuff to donate to charity.
while i have yet to buy an address book... i have updated my contact info in outlook on my computer. so, when i actually get a book to write all this stuff in, it will be an easy task to complete.
i have done a pretty damn good job of organizing some pictures on my computer. and that makes me very happy. i have a GILLION pictures, so i feel like this is a project i would love to finish soon. i'm sick of organizing pics. i just want them organized, printed out and then put in photo albums once and for all. but i still have a little while to go.
i've eaten at another new-to-me restaurant. a couple weeks ago me and michaela went to a restaurant we've both been wanting to check out: temple. it was nice. i wasn't head over heels for the food...but it was pretty good. the atmosphere however was incredible! it had private booths and candles hanging from the ceiling instead of lights. i loved it.
so obviously i didn't go camping this month, or i would have written about it. so i took that out of italics. there's always next summer.
for part of my soon to be sister-in-laws bachelorette party, we're taking her to a nearby vineyard for a tasting in two weeks. which is super exciting because it is one of the vineyards in the tour i want to do for goal #24 yay! more on this later.
my one new to me place per month for july will be a bar called the belmont. its got a lot of character. dark wood, low ceilings, lots of leather and a dim atmosphere. i might have made is sound creepy, but its actually rather chill.
yeah, not much to say. i have been crazy busy preparing for my brother's wedding, and the time capsule project is totally falling behind. i don't want to give up on this project though, because i really want to get this done. so, hmm. i don't know what to do about it, but i am sure i will figure it out.
yesterday was my 30th weekly journal entry...at least i can keep up with something.
just finished my 135th grace in small things entry. i am kicking ass on those entries.
i've finished another book: "if i had my life to live over/i would pick more daisies" a compilation of stories and poetry about being a girl or woman at all stages of life. it was rather beautiful. the title is something that really motivates me. maybe i should ruminate on that and write something of my own. the only thing is...i really need to recount the books i own. i can't remember and i've donated some. so its time for a recount.
i accidentally completed another goal without expecting to. while i am considering it complete, i didn't bold it on the side just to leave it open again. i dove in my friends swimming pool, but i didn't do any of my wild dives i used to do because it wasn't super safe. ha. number 1, i had been drinking and number 2, while the diving board is obviously in the deep end- i'm sure its not as deep as a college pool. so item completed, but hopefully i will still make it somewhere i can really do some wild dives.
ugh. yes, still kicking my ass and paying off those credit cards. and yes, still kicking myself in the ass for even having any debt to begin with.
