It's Monday....ugh

I thought I'd look back at my resolutions for last year (finally) and see how I did. Here they are:

Grow the herbs we use most...and don't kill them
Take lunch away from the office (this is on my 101 things list)
Learn to do perfect french pedicures
Use the Wii Fit
Submit 5 cards to craft magazines
Document card making

Let's see....growing herbs. Yes, did (am doing) that. However.....killing them was hit and miss. But I'm going to check it off the list anyway. Check!

Take lunch away from my desk. Ooish. Not good....I mostly eat at my desk. I don't work while I'm "at lunch". But still :(

Lean to do a french pedicure. Did that. Check!

Use Wii Fit. Ummm....I don't even know where it is! :(

Submit 5 cards to craft magazines. Check!

Document card making. This is hit and miss again. I do have a copy of the cards I I guess that counts as documenting them. I believe I was thinking I would photograph them, but having one is better anyway. So I'll count that as done! Check!

I think 4 out of 6 is pretty good!

I'll make my New Years resolution this year to use the Wii Fit. It's still January, so I'm in just under the line. We'll see how it goes.

Not going to add taking my lunch away from my desk because I know it's unlikely to happen. It might have been easier when I had a car because I could go somewhere. But now that I carpool I'm stuck here. And there's NOTHING around here that I can walk to that's of much interest to me. This place is a drag as far as getting away from the office (and the people in it).

So Wii Fit. Gotta find that thing!

Did you make any?

I just had to show these to everyone. They are my new Skelanimal earbuds I use at work. How frickin' adorable are they!? Forgive the photo....I had to use Photo Booth to take the picture and I have them stuck to an envelope. But you can see the cuteness!!

While I was doing this it reminded me of something I saw at Target. Have you seen the Monster High dolls?

Monster High Frankie Stein Doll

I have to be honest, when I saw them, I wished I could have been Frankie Stein in high school. She has this cute little plaid dress and these cute shoes! It's exactly the way I want to dress every Halloween!!! She is just beyond cool. Is it wrong that I want to buy Frankie? I could buy it with the idea it will be valuable someday and I could eBay it....does that makes it seem less weird? We'll see. These dolls just bring out my inner goth....and really, it's amazing I'm not gothy all the time. Frankie comes in different outfits, but she looks best in the plaid. Well, at least I think she does. But I'm drawn to things that are plaid. Did I ever tell you about my plaid car seats? Another time....

Top Tunes **Updated

I've never really looked at the iTunes play counter but I was checking it out today and thought it was interesting to see what songs I listen to the most at work. I wasn't surprised by the list. However, I'm positive it's a totally different list at home.

Here are the top ten I listen to at work:

1. October (Danny Wright) 265 plays
2. Come Away With Me 231 plays
3. Across The View (Richard Burmer) 205 plays
4. Theme from A Summer Place 203 plays
5. Human Touch 190
6. I'll Remember You (Sophie Zelmani) 176 plays
7. Fallen (Lauran Wood) 161 plays
8. The Air That I Breathe 160
9. Patience (Guns N' Roses) 138 plays
10. The Scientist 121 plays

As expected, my top ten at home is different ....except for the last one!

1. Glory Days 271 plays
2. Christmas Canon (Trans-Siberian Orch) 169 plays
3. Ordinary People 167 plays
4. Photograph (Ringo Starr) 166 plays
5. What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life (Laura Fygi) 163
6. Hysteria 161 plays
7. Southern Cross 158 plays
8. 40 Dogs (Bob Schneider) 156
9. Little Red Corvette 142 plays
10. The Scientist 138 plays

I think it's pretty amazing Coldplay's The Scientist is in the same spot on both lists and not very far apart in number of plays! I do like the Christmas Canon a lot so not a surprise I listen to that the most at Christmas. Ordinary People is a fav but I'm surprised it's so high on the list. I must have listened to it everyday for a while. Not at all surprised that What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life is on the list. In fact when I was at work making my list, I was trying to think what would be on my home list and I knew that one would be in the top ten. Love her version. So there you have it ~ kinda interesting....for me at least!

Happy 2011

Wishing everyone a happy new year!

We had PeiWei for lunch today and my fortune cookie said I should finally do something I've been thinking of doing. Hummm. Seems like I shouldn't ignore that fortune on the first day of the year!

It's been said for a long time that having black-eyed peas on the first day of the year is good we'll be having some for dinner. I'm not saying I believe it, I just figure we have nothing to loose, right?

Resolutions.....ugh. I'll have to look back at my post from last year and see how I did. I honestly can't recall what was on the list. One resolution I've made so far is to try to "eat the rainbow" daily (eat fruit and veggies the color of the rainbow). I'll give this a good try. I know I won't get much purple tho. I don't care for eggplant and I rarely see concord grapes. What else is purple? Greg asked if purple Skittles count - *laughs*. Blue might also be a problem. Ummm....blueberries? I know those are a super food so maybe I'll buy some and eat a handful at breakfast each day. I bet Greg will ask if blueberry pop tarts count :)

All the best to you this year! a bakery!

I got so excited when I saw this! King Arthur Flour has made digital backgrounds that will work in Zoom, Slack, Teams & GoToMeeting! T...
