Never let me go

As if my cold weren't making my nose run enough, I had to go and watch the most heart wrenching and beautiful movie ever. If you haven't seen Never Let Me Go, do it now.

Must haves: Butler's Pantry

Traditionally, a butler's pantry was used for storage, cleaning and counting of silver; European butlers often slept in the pantry, as their job was to keep the silver under lock and key. The wine log and merchant's account books may also have been kept in there. The room would be used by the butler and other domestic staff; it is often called a butler's pantry even in households where there is no butler.

How come you don't often find butler pantries in modern homes? When/ if I ever purchase a home it will have to have a butlers pantry or room to renovate and add one. I think they make the kitchen seem cleaner. And Id probably add the fridge an food pantry to it.

Accomplishment: Say goodbye to the holidays

Today I accomplished part one of cleaning up my apartment; taking down the Christmas decorations. Although its sad to see the holidays go, I know they'll be back before I know it. Not to make excuses but my storage shed is almost a half hour away from my apartment. Which makes everything much more inconvenient. Plus the whole idea of needing a storage shed is pretty bogus if you think about it..."I've got so much stuff I don't use I need to buy a second house for it." I guess that's what happens when you combine two houses of stuff into one apartment. Tomorrow I hope to start the process of getting this blog looking nicer. Hopefully this lovely lady can help a girl out. ;)

Accomplish something first

It was tough figuring out something to accomplish in so little time. I'm starting to remember why I never got anything done in the first place. But I suppose that if everyone else with a 9-5 can get things done, so can I. Today I realized how few photos of cars holding hands there are on the internet. Actually, there aren't any! How the heck has the world continued without anything on the internet of cars holding hands? So, here it is folks. I apologize of today's accomplishment seems meaningless. Good news is, I finally finished paying my dad for last months car payment. Christmas really pulled one over on me. This year I'll be more prepared for it. PS. Thank you for everyone who has been reading these. It really makes me feel more accountable for something. I hope you are all doing well.
PPS. My 500th sale is coming up! Any ideas on how I should celebrate? Giveaways, ect...?

A quick accomplishment

Its been a pretty gloomy out today. So I decided to plant my Paper whites that Brittany got me for Christmas. I had started to plant them on New Years but got sidetracked. I figured since you start them off indoors anyways and I have a movie appointment with the boy at 7pm its the perfect quick accomplishment for the day. When the start to grow I hope for them to look as beauty as the ones in this picture. I know its not a big accomplishment, but hey you gotta take baby steps right? This week I hope to accomplish getting health insurance and finally putting my car in my own name. FINALLY. Cheers and I hope everyone else is staying up with their resolutions thus far.
