as i’m painting them, charley turns to me and says… “in all the time we’ve been dating, i’ve never seen you paint your nails once!!!”  he was so shocked.  i continued to paint, while we watched the movie gladiator (i’ve seen it a million times and already 3 times this week… but i still watched it again last night… love it!)  and again charley looks over and this time he says… “were you just licking your nail?!?!?”  “why were you just licking your nail?!?!?”  i told him, to smooth it out.  he didn’t believe me.  WHY?!?!?  he was so confused about something that to me, almost seemed like common sense.  SO… i called jenny on speakerphone…

j: helloooooo…

m: hey, why do you lick your nailpolish?

j: to smooth it out.

m:  ok thanks!!!

HAHA!  duh of course it makes sense, me AND jenny both do it!!!

so, i’m painting my nails now.  so what?!?!  i’m doing a lot of things i never used to do!  call it a new lease on life.  call it turning 30.  call it a new years resolution.

a list of things i now do on a regular basis:

  • wii fit for at least 30 min. (aerobics, yoga, strength training, balance games)
  • fast paced walking on my treadmill for at least 45 min.
  • eat healthier (less sugar, more greens)
  • moisturize my arms
  • wash my face before bed even on the nights i’m too tired to
  • read the stack of books i have next to my bed
  • learn to sew with a sewing machine (my new pixie)

so far so good.  the exercising and eating healthier are starting to pay off, i’m down a couple pounds and my jeans don’t cut off my circulation anymore.  the roughness on my upper arms is almost gone.  my skin is almost back to “normal” meaning not breaking out like a teenager on my chin!!!  i’m about to start another new book tonight!!!  the pixie, one of the things i got this christmas, is the most adorable little sewing machine.  perfect for a dunce like me!  i’m getting there… my first project will be to sew those curtains i “made” last year.  if i get really good, maybe i’ll sew a backing to them!!!

i didn’t add the usual… “blog more” to that list… haha i don’t want to set my expectations for myself too high!!!

so on a side note… i’m thrilled to say… that i’ll be in d.c. for the inauguration next week.  i’m beside myself.  no, i don’t have a ticket.  no, i can’t really handle crowds. no, i’m not expecting to really see our new president.  but man oh man to share in the excitement of that day, right there in the middle of it all.  thrilling!!!

till next time!  xo.
