New Years & My Birthday

January 9th, 2019

We don’t really do anything special on New Years Day and this year was no exception. In fact, I was in bed when it hit midnight, although I did hear fireworks going off. We decided to make ribs on the grill but unfortunately they were on too long and ended up getting burnt so we grabbed burgers from Culvers instead.

As for my birthday, I put too much pressure on myself to have fun even though winter birthdays suck. Usually it’s super cold out but this time around it was raining all day and I just felt like garbage. We ran some errands, including a trip to Savers were Joe found three t-shirts and I found nothing. Ugh! We also sold some old computer games and K’s old copy of Twilight on DVD to Half Price Books. I bet Joe they’d give us a whole $1.50 for everything and that’s exactly what they offered us. Better than nothing if we had donated them at least. We had lunch at Red Robin where they burned my burger so they are now on my shit list. Overall it was a disappointing day and I’m glad it’s over. I did get a monster green tea lemonade for free from Starbucks, though. They put the free drink in the app on on your actual birthday. I ordered a Venti but the girl said I could get a Trenta which is 32 oz so that was pretty cool. I drank some that day and then drained the ice and had the rest between yesterday and today.

Over the weekend we had a black wire rack delivered from Amazon and reorganized our little food stockpile we had going on upstairs in the former rat room which is now more like Joe’s office slash storage room. We also went through the closet in there to get rid of some things. It’s amazing to me we keep finding things to purge. The hall closet is now emptier too which I like. I hate having any space filled to the brim with stuff. Joe got me a three-drawer organizer for my birthday which I’m using to store all our tea in the kitchen cabinet. Not only is that cabinet more pleasant to look at now that it’s less crowded, but having easy access/sight to the tea has encouraged me to drink it more frequently.

Oh, and with our new shelving upstairs I took some things from the pantry and moved them upstairs so the pantry is less crowded as well. Menards had bins on sale so I got some to help make things look nicer in there as well. We went to another Menards so I could get more but they were all out of stock which was a bummer. I might go to another location later this week to get some more since they are a great size for other things too.

I might come back here and post photos if I can get them in good light later this week, so maybe stay tuned? Like anyone reads this except me.
