Welcoming March

Unfortunately, I'm welcoming March and feeling a little bit like a failure.  I'm skimming through my February goals and they're not looking so great: 
I didn't go to the gym (not once)
There are still boxes all over the floor of my bedroom
You can still hardly see my desk in the spare bedroom

So I didn't do so hot there.  But there is internet in my apartment and its 7:30am and I've already cleaned up a mess in my kitchen, make lunch to take to work, drop Josh off at the law school so he can leave for Milwaukee, pack clothes to go home for the weekend, check Facebook, my email, and read a few articles so hopefully that's a sign that this month is going to be more productive!  

So let's write some goals for this month that are actually do-able.  

1. Go to the gym (I really am going to get there eventually)
2. Finish unpacking and/or at least make my floor walkable if I can't empty EVERY box.

3. Plan my garden and start my seeds (I put down my deposit on my community garden plot!)
4. Complete my desk corner in the spare bedroom

5. Make my apartment semi-respectable so that I don't feel embarrassed when people come by last minute.
6. Blog once/week
7. Work on having "me-time" 

I'm also going to be working on my lenten observance which is my (attempt) at giving up hitting snooze more than twice a far I'm getting better at it, but still not great. 

Here's to March, hoping its happy...and productive!

What are everyone else's March goals?

Odd Pets

Every once in a while I click the "Marketplace" application on my Facebook page (in case someone is giving away a free bed that I could use).  Upon doing so yesterday I saw a pet Wallaby for sale for $1,200.  
I want one.  
However, the question is...can I have one?  Are wallabys...or is it wallabies...or maybe that's definitely not know what I mean...but are they legal in this state?
Well let's start with what we know is legal: cats and dogs (unless your landlord says no then you'll be out on the street), most lizards, but those are basic pets.  Here's a little snippet into the unusual (and expensive) pets.  
World's most expensive pets: 
Green Monkey: $16 million Missy: $1.2 million Capuchin Monkey: $10,000 That's right.  I said LEGAL!  There are neither bans nor requirements on monkey ownership in Ohio so go for it!  Buy your monkey!
Need a less feminine monkey?  Try these guys!
De Brazza's Monkey: $7,000-$10,000

Squirrel Monkey: $…

Gen Y Gives Thanks

I apologize a thousand times for the lack of updates and for putting this up so late. Large amounts of technical difficulties have inhibited my blogging, email checking, social networking, etc. However, now that I have a moment's internet access I would like to give you the link to this brilliant idea that Sharalyn Hartwell has cooked up. She writes for the Gen Y Examiner and to combat the stereotype that Gen Y is a bunch of ungrateful brats she asked members of Gen Y to write what they're grateful for and has been posting them in series.

Here's the link. She's posted a few each day so keep reading these articles of course I'm partial to mine which can be read here.

DIY Wood Stencil Sign

I purchased these cute blank signs from Target--here's what the original item looked like. Then I created a stencil using 631-this is removable vinyl.  I chose removable vinyl mostly because I had ordered a large number of a color I didn't intend to use again and had extra, also it works great for things like ceramics where you're worried 651 permanent vinyl won't remove easily.  The key for me was USE TRANSFER TAPE.  In the past a majority of my bleeding has been from the centers of the letters because I was individually placing them by hand and they weren't sealing properly.  Transfer tape not only removes me individually placing letter centers, but it also gives you a better seal.  Just take an old credit card and burnish your transfer tape FOREVER.  

I mean, burnish until you think there can't possibly be any bubbles under that piece of vinyl...and then do it some more!  Then peel up your transfer tape...and voila!

This is the paint I decided to use.  It'…
