I just made something from scratch that ended up tasting like hamburger helper. Almost exactly like hamburger helper. I think I’m disturbed by this.

Today I walked out of Ikea with two lamps, and that is all. I am proud of myself. I did see a desk I liked, though. It’s like the corner desk version of Shawn’s desk. I like it, but there’s one at Staples that I want to see close up, because it might be better suited to my needs. We shall see.

For the first time since last October, the weather network says it’s going to be sunny for an entire week. I am shocked and awed.

I have nearly assembled all of the addresses I need for wedding invitations, but I keep thinking that there’s someone I said I would invite who isn’t in my spreadsheet (hi I’m an office administrator, I use spreadsheets for everything) and I can’t figure out who. It’s starting to drive me crazy.

A girl from work dropped off some old furniture she and her husband didn’t want anymore. I have a temporary desk until I can get a real one! It’s fantastic to not be sitting on the floor. Also Adam has a proper computer desk chair, so his ass won’t be hurting him anymore. It is good. We also got an old stereo mini system and cd player, so we don’t have to listen to my portable cd player with cruddy computer speakers anymore. We put the books in the cardboard box bookcase into the china hutch that Lindsay gave me a couple of months ago, so now our books aren’t in boxes on the floor anymore. It almost looks like people live here now. Amazing.

My brother is coming for a visit of sorts on Tuesday. He’s actually moving back out here, I guess. I can’t take responsibility for him, though, any more than I can take it for Adam’s brother when he comes out here to stay for a bit. I hope he realizes as much. I think he does, but I can’t be sure. I take responsibility for no one but myself and Adam. I’m just self-centred that way.

    That’s not self-centered, that’s sanity.

      Indeed. Hopefully the family will get that too. Then again, I don’t much care what they think.

    It sounds like things are starting to come together for you….

    This makes me very happy.

    I don’t think that’s self centered, it’s healthy.
