organizing...and eating...

ok, so i got a laptop!!!! yay!!!! now i can actually upload pics and blog again with ease. sweetness. so far i'm liking windows 7, too. pretty cool stuff.

so i got me a new scrap table. it's fab. 3 bookshelves from wally underneath mike's old subbuteo table. will most likely paint or finish the tabletop someday, but it will work fine for now.
i'm organizing my scrap room but i have waaaay too much stuff! it will be fab once i get it finished though. mike is going to hate the table in the middle of the room...but it's a work room. he'll live.

a few pics to share:
my lunch for today. shrimp and spinach over whole wheat pasta. super easy and i'll post the recipe on the clean eating blog maybe later today.

the 3 amigos vehicles. ange, mee mee, and mine. i need an SUV. i'll take a big fat hummer h2...all white. like completely whited out. is that a word? whited? it is now. that would be sweet. far better than the camo ones i used to drive ; )
crazy mushrooms at central market. what a place! and what prices! holy pete, that place is expensive. you know it's pricey when a hungry girl like me comes out with a small box of clementines and a box of tea. but the food is beautiful. had a nice time browsing, except for the sub-zero temps inside...turn on the flippin' heat people!

that's about all. trying to keep busy. sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. i didn't run today; taking a break from my chilly run yesterday. brrrr! had to work at 2 so i couldn't swing the gym at noon when it opened. i ran outside in 16 degree weather. it wasn't windy, so it really wasn't all that bad. 5.6 miles. people driving kept looking at me like i was nuts. well, i am nuts, thank you very much! have a race coming up on jan 24th and then the cowtown half is on feb 27th.
ooh! and i forgot to mention that my new year's day race...i came in first in my age group! check it out! and i came in 46th out of 206. not too shabby!
guess that's about all for now. i don't work again until thursday night, so i have a little bit of time to get this crazy mess of a house in order. it's BAD!!!

later peeps. have a marvelous monday!!!
