Can you believe it’s March already?!
Well, I had a pretty successful weekend of relaxation. I almost completed everything I had on my short list of things to finish up.
I was able to get through our LOADS of paperwork and sort it all into recycle, shred and keep. The keep pile is nice and short, pretty much consisting of old tax returns (remember unless there are extenuating circumstances you only really need to keep the last 7 years worth), and our house purchase documents. This made me feel extremely accomplished – my husband takes after my father in that he keeps EVERYTHING. There were student loan statements from 2003! Seriously, the internet is a fabulous thing. The next step is to plop the docs into our portable filing box and be done with the horror of paper everywhere!
I finally got the courage to get my supplies to fix the disaster that was my sunburst mirror. My mourning period is officially over. As soon as I find my camera charger (so mad) I can show you how it looks revamped!
Then there was the – work on Ottawa trip plan. We’re pretty much ready to book the flights. I just need to final okay from my Boss about the days off and we’ll move forward with that. We’re taking a few mini trips inside of our big trip while we’re up there. My friend Erin is going to join us in culturing the hubs in French Canada by going to Montreal for a few days. Erin is on top of planning this as we speak. Then the final weekend we are up there we’ll be heading over to Niagara Falls to do as Jim and Pam did and board the Lady of the Mist! If there is one thing I love more than The Office Wedding episode – it’s Niagara Falls. Woot! I can’t wait!
Some other small things I completed this weekend – I made these rolls for our Family dinner last night, they were yummy! I spent 6 hours waiting for a non-existent Tsunami to attack Hawaii. I rooted for Canada in the hockey game. Spent a few minutes convincing previously mentioned friend Erin to read Wizards First Rule by Terry Goodkind – and successfully struck a deal with her that if she did that I would watch Battlestar Gallactica. You see, that is true friendship – introducing new things to each other by way of bloody bribery. I consider it a win win situation, what about you?
I also made a spreadsheet of our plethora of student loans. Then choked on my own tongue and proceeded to think positively that we WILL pay them off, and SOON.
Oh yes, and I yet again stared at our tax forms as I put off sending them in – again. They’ve been done since January. Lazy accountant over here.
My weekend was busy!
In honour of the month of March, I will be partaking in my very own March Madness (that does not involve Basketball). This is the short list of things to do this month.
Go see Remember Me in order to catch Eclipse trailer – and watch Panty Terrorist Rob Pattinson in action.
Attend Matthew Good concert – WOOOO
Celebrate a bunch of Pisces birthdays
Read 10 books
Celebrate our one year anniversary by eating a freshly baked replica of our wedding cake from our baker
Finish laundry room makeover
Start on the next room makeover
Refinish some more old family furniture (!!!!)
Buy a new computer for the hubs – because the three in our house is not enough.
That’s the short list for now. I’m sure within the next few days it will become The Long List.
What did you guys do this weekend? Did you have a successful February 2010? Or maybe plan for your own (basketball or not) March Madness?
