Long-awaited update

What have I been doing since last time we chatted?

Well, first, I got a promotion! Why, yes, I am a PUBLIC RELATIONS DIRECTOR now, thank you for asking. 😉  I’m still with the same company, but taking on my responsibilities, which is really cool.

Then, I watched my favorite basketball team get annihilated by this crazy mythical bird thing:

Then, I watched this movie in honor of MLK Day.

And, ohmigod, you guys, did I mention that I went to THIS show??

(Which, by the way, was super-super-super cute and if it comes to your city, please go see it. I laughed the entire time.)

And, besides that I’ve been reading a lot. I’m keeping a list of all the books I read in 2011. I will TRY (emphasis on TRY) to give you all a list and my recommendations at the end of each month. But, so far, among other things, I’ve gotten addicted to this series:

Let’s see….what else? I’ve done about 17 million JL things already in 2011, and still have eleventy-billion more to go. (this is not interesting enough to merit a picture).

I learned a new dice game at my friend K-Sizzle’s game night. This brings my total of dice games to two. The other is Yahtzee.  And I’m thinking about starting a game night club to complement the book club.

Ahhh….I know ….best thing ever – I finally got my computer! FINALLY! It’s giant, though. I thought I was getting the same size as Ducks has, but I accidentally ordered one that’s bigger. It’s actually a really good size for watching videos, but may end up being really heavy to carry around. I guess it’s a good thing that I am so busy I barely have time to look at the computer, much less get all cozy with my new laptop in a coffee shop somewhere.

So, anyway, there’s my life update. I promise to be a better commenter/blog reader in the near future. Pinky swear! 🙂

Decision on the Tree

Not much blogging from me for the next few days as Ducks is using the computer for a take-home final. I was able to steal it for a few minutes to give you an update – we are not getting a second tree.

I’m still going to spend money to get a laptop and will probably order it this week, but I decided that the tree is not a priority on the spending list right now. I appreciate everyone’s advice, but the person who ultimately swayed me was Abbey. Why? Because of her beautiful post (go read it right now!) on her Christmas decorations and appreciating simple gifts.

Go check this out immediately – it’s so cool! That’s all I really have for now – once again, I was awed by her creativity and how she makes me see the beauty in the world around me. And that’s why I’m not getting a second tree. 🙂
