Goal Modification

This is a public restatement of my blog 2x per month goal.  I am not meeting it, and I’m not sure that my attempts to stay caught up with it are warranted.  I’m going to move it to 1x per month, and see if I can squeeze some quality out of it, rather than quantity.

Also, pester me. I’ve got some good stuff to write down, I’m just not quite getting it written down for whatever reason.

To Do List for May

This is kind of a goals post, things that I want to accomplish in May:

1) Eat Paleo – Try it for a week. If it works, try it for another. Repeat
2) Finish redoing my master closet. I’m tired of dragging my shirts around the house
3) Don’t buy any shoes, shirts, pants, jeans, or other clothing. Limit Amazon spend. Spend consciously on needs.
4) Plan out the garden, build new raised beds, plant flowers and veg, if the weather cooperates
5) Start the Lifetime Ladder. Make it a daily habit

Phoning it in

I am sitting on an eep! day on Beeminder.com and if I don’t publish something on my blog, I owe them $5.  I also went to the dentist today and my face is swollen and all I want to do is lie on the couch and watch Frozen, and because of the stupid Target data breach, I can’t even do that. (Chase cancelled my card, and I failed to update my preorder with my new card, so I won’t get it until tomorrow.)

So I’m phoning it in.  Sure it barely counts, but whatever. Here’s a phoned in blog post.

I was going to write about good customer service experiences that I’ve recently had.  Guess that’s for next time, and maybe this will teach me to get a little ahead of my Beeminder.


Winter Fun Facts

Ann Arbor is presently the 7th Snowiest city in the US, with 74 inches total snowfall this season (including this morning’s storm).

I have shoveled my driveway and walk 11 times since January 1st, an average of 1x every 4 days.  The longest that I have gone without shoveling was 19 days between the 5th and 24th of January (I was out of town for 5 days in that period, and I think Rob picked up a time or two).  I shoveled 4 days in a row from Jan 24 to Jan 27.

It takes between 30 and 45 minutes to shovel. This morning, I took approximately 2300 steps while shoveling.

The snowbanks at the end of my driveway are nearly 5 feet tall.  I could hide at least 11 of my 13 nieces and nephews in them. The oldest two might be able to peek out the top.

I have gotten stuck in said snowbanks backing out of my driveway twice.  At least two other people have had to be rescued from said snowbanks.

My longest commute involved at least an hour and a half of driving after getting stuck in the snowbank for half an hour.  It felt like half of that was in downtown Dearborn, just a few miles from the office.

I have a raised bed garden space in the back yard.  I can’t see it.  There are at least two steps from my back door to the patio. I also can’t see them.

Days since I saw Frozen: 52.
Days since I downloaded the Frozen soundtrack: 28
Days since I preordered Frozen: 12
Days until I receive Frozen: 28
Number of times I’ve made a joke to myself about Disney turning down the Viral Marketing campaign already: approximately 100



Ok, I’ll bite:
