I just found out that my cat likes to sleep in my pajama drawer. I found this out by grabbing clothes to change into, reaching into the back of the drawer and feeling fur. I pulled the drawer out a little further and there is bucKley, snoozing away.

Our ex-roommate's cat used to like to open my pajama drawer and paw through it, getting my clothes all over the floor. I didn't know that bucKley could even open the drawer (it's on the floor and on mini-casters - it's part of my bedframe), let alone climb in and have an undetected snooze.

The drawer was closed when I started getting the clothes, so I must have found it open and closed it, not knowing the cat was in there. Sneaky little devil. He might have been upset if he hadn't been found, but when I did find him, he looked a little perturbed that I had interrupted his nap.

Just finished dying my hair. Hope "Intense Red" perks up the February blahs. The gray-ness that permeates most days is really beginning to get to me.

At least I don't have an all-black wardrobe to go with the weather. I've never understood the wearing of all black. I get wearing black due to being goth or dramatic, but I find that that the best goth or dramatic outfits I see have a little bit of colour to them. Even coloured jewlery or makeup helps.

Why is it that all the bargains and cool things come into my life when I am completely broke, and magically disappear when I have a little bit of money? My to-purchase list is quite large right now. It's mostly stuff to make my office more functional as well as a more enjoyable place to sit in. I'm trying not to get consumer-lust since that means that I'll make a bunch of random purchases of things I don't really need. I'm not really interested in a case of buyer's remorse right now. I'm also not interested in buying junk that isn't quite what I want just because the price is right. I don't want to settle - everything costs too much money for settling for almost perfect.

Being a grownup and working hard for your money really sucks sometimes.

The site is almost under control now. I just have to reformat the photo section. I'm not quite sure how to do it yet since I have over two years of pictures to sift through and upload. Has it really been that long since I uploaded photographs to the site? So much has happened! I still can't get the archives to format properly. I contacted Blogger support, and they responded to me, but the answer wasn't quite what I needed. I don't think I explained it quite right, and I don't feel like trying again. I'm probably the only person who reads the archives anyway (vain much?) so there's not too much reason to get upset.

This is a much better way to spend Super Bowl Sunday than watching football. Although I'm sure that once Sean comes home from his business trip, the TV will go right to football.

Saying "once Sean comes home from his business trip is making me giggle. We're *that* kind of couple now, with real careers, a mortgage and a cat. Kinda clashes with the whole rocker/geek mentality we've maintained for so long. A reminder that we all wear different hats at different times.

I guess three weeks between updates is better than 3 months, isn't it?

For the first time in a long time, Sean and I had a very productive Saturday on our own. Usually, our most productive times at home come when my parents are visiting and they kindly offer to help us do stuff around the house. We did the following:

It was definitely a good day to stay inside and do all this. Today's blizzard, as well as the continuing wind chill has made it a perfect day to stay inside and get stuff done.

Our house is far more cluttered than it should be for two people and a cat. While we did have a roommate up until last week, he took most of his stuff with him. The leftover stuff is getting on my nerves though, and I'm looking forward to getting rid of it too. As I've been going around the house doing stuff today, I keep thinking "I could have a yard sale this spring." But I know that by the time yard sale season rolls around, I'll have forgotten about which stuff I want to sell. So it would be prudent for me just to box up what I have now and send it to Goodwill or something, but I don't know what their limits are for taking stuff. I don't want to give them crap that won't sell there, but may make a quarter from a little kid buying stupid stuff with change from the couch.

But back to my office. The major task of the weekend has been to get Sean and I into separate offices so that we can have our own space for doing stuff. I want to have my computer, books, aromatherapy stuff, and a spot to do crafty things. Just before Christmas, I saw the nicest craft desk on sale in the Canadian Tire flyer. My sister liked it too, and picked it up for herself right away. I decided to wait since I didn't know that I was getting my own ofice yet, and now I can't get the desk anymore - it was a special order, and now I can't find it anywhere. I even looked on Ebay, and someone is selling one there, but in USD and with a pantload of shipping that makes it awfully expensive. So now, I have to be on the lookout for it.

There is still lots to do around here, but I don't feel like I'm horribly behind at this point in the weekend like I normally do. I guess Sean and I are changing for the better.

I've finally done something about this poor, neglected old site. I can't take credit for the design though - I used a Blogger template by Jason Sutter and changed the colours and removed stuff I didn't want. Of course, there is still fiddling to do, but this is such a great start. I really want to get this site going again.

There's more to say, but I have to work tomorrow, so I should really go to bed.

2004 wore me out. I'm looking forward to 2005. I've done and learned a lot this year.

I really want to rework this site. I bought myself a new computer after Christmas so using a computer at home is fun again.

I want to rework a lot of things in my life right now. Don't worry though, I'm not getting divorced - I really like being married.

Happy New Year.
