First things first. Follow now lives with us! I was able to get him from the SPCA. I don’t want to get into the how and why. Let’s just say the whole thing was insane. He’s been here for four days and he already is looking better. But he still only ways 7 lbs. Today he even let out a few meows. They were very deep, nothing like how Dizzy sounds. Dizzy has taken to hiding under our chest of drawers, though Dizzy and Follow haven’t yet met. Follow is under quarantine because of his respiratory infection.

I also went to look at house today. It needs A LOT of work. I really can see the potential in it though.

My DH is away for a conference all week for work. So I had to look at the house alone (with my mom and the realtor). I’m so anxious. I want the house but I don’t want to sign him up for work that he is not prepared to do. I guess I have to wait to see what he says. In the meantime I’ll continue to wander around the house and stalk it. (They got an alarm system because of me).

I finally finished some bags that were supposed to be done months ago. Two sisters bought bags from me to help me raise money for my Leukemia and Lymphoma Society campaign. I hope they like them.

I think I’ll make some more for the shop. So I’ll be updating by the fall. I’m working on some shirts and onesies for the little ones too. I’ll let you know when I do the update. And I leave you with this:

Well I haven’t written in a long time. It seems I should be able to say a lot has happened in the last month but it hasn’t. I lead such a boring life. Anyway, here are a few of the things that have happened since my last post:

  1. I am at 82% of my goal for fund-raising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
  2. I finally read What is the What by Dave Eggers
  3. I finally read A Long Way Gone
  4. I made my first mango cobbler (I have another one in the oven)
  5. I bought the most beautiful top and dress at Dance Africa in Brooklyn

So tomorrow morning- early, very early- I’ll be heading to Tallahassee, FL. My sister-in law is having a wedding ceremony. And I’ll finally get to see my little nephew, Dash. I’ll try to take lots of pictures. I also can’t wait to hit the thrift stores!

I just got Hubert the Pudge: A Vegetarian Tale by Henrik Drescher in the mail today. I love thHubert the pudgeis book. It’s for kids (yes, yet another thing for children.) I had it in my amazon.com shopping cart for a very long time and then I saw a review at Books by it’s Cover and I was afraid there would be a run on the book. So I got copy. I think it’s one of the most adorable books ever.
Perhaps tomorrow I will find out if I can have that sweet dark nectar again- I mean chocolate when I see the cardiologist. It’s been over a month without chocolate and I miss it. It’s the only thing that makes life worth living. I’m exaggerating but it’s pretty darn good. If I can have chocolate, I will be making a giant cake. Yum yum.
I’ve been listening to Peter and the Wolf. So I leave you with this:

The other day at work I was looking for a new incentive for our members (I work at non-profit and our members get products for joining…like t-shirts). I wanted something recycled, organic, fair trade, sweat-shop free. While I was looking I found this cool place, The Working World.

They tell you exactly where the money from sales go to for each product and give a fair wage to workers. I wish every company would do this. And I love their polka dot blouse. I am definitely getting one. And a pair of the Raw Alpargatas.

As for the Triathlon, I am at 38% of my goal right now. If you’re inclined to give a tax deductible contribution please visit my site to help fight leukemia. Tonight I bike, tomorrow swim and then bike again on Sunday, plus yoga. In other news, my sewing class that was canceled last week due to snow will resume tonight but my crochet class was canceled- after I drove all the way to the Northeast (another country, almost). I leave you with this video … I love this. She’s Thao Nguyen.

Our Dizzy, has been nudging me awake everything morning. I would get up even at three am and feed him but my DH told me to stop getting up and that we should just ignore him, he’d have to wait. Well, it looks like it’s working. Today is the first morning he has not head-butted me awake.

World of firsts

After writing this first entry I wonder if things will be the same- you know like your first love, your first kiss. Actually my love and kisses have only gotten better. And I’m quite sure I’ll love my TNT tri in June. So here’s to first. Drink up!
