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!

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!
