To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thursday, January 14, 2010


At any given point in time, I am in some various stage of all of the following ativities:

- dieting (or some self-imposed restriction thereof)

- buying something

- trying not to buy something

- training for something

- planning some sort of party or get-together

- putting together a proposal (or a lot of them)

- procrastinating

- looking for a place that sells diet coke

- cleaning/organizing something

- not saying no to anything

- racking my brain for the long list of people I owe a phone call to, but still haven't found time to call back

- missing my family

- forgetting something important

- trying to make the world a better place

- trying to find my talents (or talent, I'd be happy with just one)

- sleep deprevation.

I am currently reaching the upper end of the dsyfunctional spectrum for most of these duties, especially the last one.

I think you owe ME a phone call! =) I was just telling Miss Wendy yesterday that my husband has to leave this summer for an extended work trip and I think before he leaves that she and I should pop down for a weekend with you. May-ish sometime?

Amanda. Your phone call is on the list. I would LOVE to talk to you. And, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for you and Wendy to come in May. Seriously, how much fun would that be. I'll plan on it! Just let me know when. Apparently tix are way cheap right now from SLC to Long Beach on JetBlue. My roommate just got one round trip for $130. Love your guts, can't wait to see you!
