Random Musings

Garth and I have a new favorite show, Elementary. It’s a modern day twist on Sherlock Holmes and Watson with all the fun deductive reasoning to solve crimes without all the violence and gore. LOVE. Highly recommend!

Garth and I decided to start a puzzle.

It seemed relaxing and fun to do mindless work. We started small with a 750 piece puzzle and it’s a good thing we did because it is HARD. We almost bought the 1050 piece puzzle of Africa. Crisis averted. This is a good enough start. We spent an hour and got the bottom and top row done and then we needed a break.
While I’m not the biggest fan of winter, I do enjoy this time of year. I’m taking time off this month to relax, reorganize, deep clean and see old friends. I’m super excited! I cannot even imagine if I didn’t reorganize and cleanse every year. In a matter of year I accumulate so much stuff. Our house isn’t great on storage space so I like to donate anything and everything we haven’t used in the last year. It’s very cleansing.


I plan on using this site to help me organize, especially drawers and closets. I’m super clean and neat, but like Monica I have my messy closets (and drawers) that I just cram everything in. It drives me crazy and I just need to tackle it and create a system so it doesn’t get so bad every year.

Work has been insanely busy lately. Last week I stayed late every day and that is making time fly by way too quickly. I hope to get all our Christmas shopping done this weekend.

We dog sat this past weekend and I’m pretty sure we are ready for a dog. Garth is literally hand feeding Toby carrots.

Spoiled, much? Tobs left last night and I got up this morning and went to step over him and he wasn’t there… The house is so empty without him.

Do you guys watch Cougar Town? My good friend Claire and I are obsessed. It is hilarious. It is really just about a group of friends, sound familiar?;) Well when Courtney Cox’s character has a bad day she gets out her Big Joe wine glass and Claire and I always joke we need one.

Well now they have one on the market called the XL Wine glass. How funny is this? It fits an entire bottle of wine!

I know what I'm getting Claire for Christmas, ha! It will be the perfect companion as we watch the new season in January.
Give me your randoms!

That Elementary show reminds me of a detective show for kids I used to watch on PBS back in the day, SquareOne/Mathnet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathnet Such cool shows. Is that one a cable one, I've never heard of it?
