Confessions of a shopaholic…

Lately I’ve been going swimming with Jordan in the evening at the military pool. It’s relaxing to do that after work a few days a week. The pool is usually quiet and the hot tub’s nice.

I have also collected boxes and begun packing. My room is beginning to look like it was hit by a tornado. There are things all over the place, including the new stuff I’ve purchased for the apartment.

We finally got a cordless phone set, a 16-piece dinnerset, and a Hampton silverware set that matches the ones Jordan already has. Today at HomeSense I found a set of three ceramic canisters that are perfect for cookies, sugar, and tea. I’m so happy I found them because I had been looking for two days and hadn’t found anything remotely attractive; these ones are very pretty but not tacky-looking! Also picked up random things like plastic pop-top containers, a metal mixing bowl, a 3-pack of Wiltshire scissors that were on sale, oven mitts, and um a new Point Zero bag. hehe

I think one of these days I will need to do a reinstall of WordPress because the errors I have on my Dashboard must be causing the problem I am having with deletion of spam comments that are not sent to “moderation” or “akismet”. This is rather annoying. {edit} I tried reinstalling the script but I still got the same errors. Finally I reverted back to an older version and the errors have disappeared. {/edit}

In the heat of summer

Upgraded to the latest secure version of WordPress. Everything is working properly, although I have an error about an index_extra page in my Dashboard. I have no idea what it means and it doesn’t seem to be affecting anything so I’ll leave it for now.

It’s very warm in the apartment. I don’t feel like doing anything. I washed the dishes earlier, but now I don’t feel like cleaning anything else. I finished reading Shopaholic & Sister (Sophie Kinsella) a few days ago; read it in two and a half days. Such a funny book! And today I finished The Virgin’s Lover (Philippa Gregory), the third book in the series about Elizabeth I. I really liked it. And now I’ve begun The Undomestic Goddess (Sophia Kinsella).

I need to get some boxes so I can start packing.

I see the hunger in your eyes

It was very close to the one-year anniversary of my previous layout so I thought it was about time I made a new one. And for the thousandth time, the new layout features Leonor Varela. What a surprize! haha At least Keesje understands. 😉

I enjoyed my Saturday off. I didn’t really do a whole lot. Talked to Jordan on the phone for a bit. We tried to chat on MSN but the computer he was on kept freezing. We were going to try using webcams but couldn’t get it to work. I would have loved to be able to see his face. But maybe it would have made me too sad…

Worked on the cross-stitch again and read some more of Shopaholic Ties the Knot (Sophie Kinsella). I am loving this series. It’s pretty funny and I hardly want to put the book down! Ooh, I also watched the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” which I loved!

Ich liebe dich. I think about you all the time.

Once in a lifetime destiny finds you *

I feel like crap. My head hurts, my nose is running, my throat is scratchy. I couldn’t work this morning, and I can’t work this evening. Blah.

Yesterday Jordan turned 23! For his birthday dinner I made him cheesy Italian beef bake and apple crisp for dessert. It turned out very good!

I just upgraded to WordPress 2.1 and made myself a tea. Perhaps this will make my throat feel better. The tea, not WP. 😉
