Where have I been?

I have no idea why I haven't been posting lately.  There is no excuse really.  Nothing big and exciting has been taking up all my time.  I guess I am just lazy.  Sorry friends.

A Chipotle is finally opening in my neighborhood!  There are already two near our house (about 30 minutes away), but this one is super duper close.  Like less than 10 minutes away.  AND it is right next to Target!  AWESOME.

The weather is really confusing lately. One day it is snowing, then it is 86 degrees, and the next day it is 48 degrees.  I never know what to wear anyways. 

I did some major spring cleaning last week.  It was all for nothing, because the house is a disaster again.  Sometimes I wonder why I keep trying.  Is that what happens to hoarders?  Do they just give up at some point?

John and I have been debating whether or not we really want to sell our house.  As I've mentioned before, I kind of hate my house.  But now that we have paid off the balloon loan, our mortgage is pretty low.  Do we really want to take on more debt to get that bigger house?  At first my response was "YES!"  But the more I think about it, the more ridiculous it seems.  Afterall, a house is just shelter, and I doubt that owning a bigger and prettier house will really make me happier.  Sure, at first I'd be thrilled to have a modern kitchen, a family room, and another bedroom.  But in the long run, I'd like to have money in my bank account.  Decisions, decisons.

I can't remember if I mentioned this earlier, but I decided to give up Coca Cola and ice cream (again).  The first week was ROUGH, but I am feeling better this week. I used to eat ice cream almost nightly and now I find myself STARVING at 10pm every night.  To make that feeling go away, I decided to drink a cup of water.  That hasn't worked out too well for me, because now I have to pee 3 times a night.

I can't give up the ice cream. So I've compromised and I only buy the birthday party cups. that way I have portion control.

Yeah, water is not the same as ice cream. Try an apple with peanut butter!

I don't know that I have eaten at a Chipotle, but you know I love to hear about Target!

Good for you on the coke & ice cream! It is hard but worth it. I'm still hooked on ice cream but I've given up most other junk. Keep going!!
