Update on Last Week's Goals

So, some stuff got done, some stuff didn't, and some stuff is worse than it was before.  The DVD finally went out in the mail.  I managed to do some dusting and clear out a bag full of packing materials, catalogs, and general crapola.

But the laundry is still in the basket, taking up way too much space.  And instead of reducing my "books to read in 2011" file, it's increased from 107 to 120.  (A couple ebooks finally came available at the library, and I picked up a few others cheap.)  But 21 books in the rest of the month is still doable, if tight, as long as I don't add any more titles to the list.  (HA!)  Maybe I should just change the goal to "somewhere near 100" instead of "under 100".  Might be more realistic.

So that's about it right now.  One step forward, two steps back.  You know, the usual.

Lip Balm Flavor of the Day: Cat Pee (not as scary as it sounds- pink grapefruit, orange, and lime)

    You know how I feel about goals, and ya know general "getting shit done." So, as far as I'm concerned, you were HUGELY successful! (This is me cheering, with pom poms!!!)
    Uh... that lip balm name is quite... off-putting. But the flavor combo sounds great. (I might want to call it "Citrus Splash" or something less cat-associated though.)

  2. Dusting - very great accomplishment. I detest it.
    Laundry - my putaway pile getting bigger and bigger.
    Lip balm - yummm

  3. yay for you! i managed to wrap dh's bday gifts. also plugged in nook which had low charge. That's my accomplishments for the WEEK. :)

    PS Since I live in the rural midwest, a hotbed of meth addicts, the phrase cat pee only reminds me of the smell I have to report to DCFS if the kids are greasy. sorry. addicts excrete the scent of the anhydrous ammonia and it makes everything they live with (including their kids) smell like tomcat pee.

  4. the things you learn in blog comments. I had no idea meth addicts smelled like cat pee. I did hear about this lip gloss somewhere, though, and just googled it and discovered there's another one called monkey farts. MadMax would even wear that one. I should try it, because his lips stay chapped most of the winter and lip balm is girly.

    good for you on the dusting. I HATE dusting.

  5. Most of my lip balms have come from I like her stuff a lot. And I'm pretty sure she has a Monkey Fart flavor. I think there's a Dog Poop flavor, too. (Chocolate and caramel, I think, but I wouldn't swear to it.) I know she has bacon flavor, a beer flavor, and probably other things that might appeal to a guy. She also has a men's line, which is plain and unflavored, but what's the fun in that?

    And to continue with the theme, today's Lip Balm of the Day is peppermint. (This one was a gift, and it's also a handcrafted mix, but it's not from My Lip Stuff.)


Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I appreciate it!
