i'm in the middle of an experiment, friends

it's called working + maintaining the new cleaning and cooking standards + all whilst cc is out of town and no one is here to monitor me. the first couple days...weren't so hot. i may or may not have flung clothes everywhere and left the peanut butter jar open and my makeup all over the bathroom floor. i may or may not have gone grocery shopping (20 points!) but then only unpacked the refrigerator items, leaving the rest of the bags and goodies on the floor ( 25 demerits!).

today at work (doesn't that sound funny?) i couldn't stop obsessing over the mess and the thought that my library book was overdue, the mail tossed on the floor and my countertops unsprayed. it was honestly interfering with my ability to absorb new info. which is lame but, well, i never said i was cool.

as soon as i walked in the door, i grabbed my library book and returned it before even taking off my coat. (and picked up another book and another dvd, making my current grand total 4 books and 3 dvds, i'm a library addict don't try to stop me). when i got back home again, i put away the groceries, sorted the mail, watered my herbs and collected the dirty dishes scattered throughout. then i sat on my brown couch in my blue hoodie and watched marion jones' surprisingly boring interview with oprah. zzz.

i'm going to continue my self-inflicted push by cooking a real dinner tonight, even though i'll be the only one eating it. cider chicken + mashed potatoes + cucumber salad. pretty much martha stewart around here. minus the mom khakis. (tho. could those be her secret to success? hmmm.)

  1. ok, so I have to cop to being the one that got you going on the only putting away the "fridge items" thing..it's a brilliant move, actually...prevents a person from going upstairs and pulling the covers over the head and crying after grocery shopping..

  2. it really is a brilliant tactic, though a very slippery slope. but - if i didn't know it was an option, i'd rarely get food inside these walls.

    Option two - solves everything at once - "Don't put it down, put it away."
