If I only had a brain

Have you ever told yourself several times that you needed to NOT FORGET something, and then forgotten it?

I did that today. I was going to finish the NYD Mystery Quilt 2009. It is on the machine, just waiting for me. Of course, the one thing I needed to finish it was my 6 1/2 by 24 inch ruler. I told myself countless times: "Now, on the next trip out to the car I need to grab the camera, the diaper bag, our waters, and the ruler." Do you think I remembered? Sure! I remembered the camera, the diaper bag, and the waters. Totally forgot the ruler.

So, now I am a day behind schedule in my quilting. I figure if I can hurry and finish the mystery quilt, that I can maybe get 2 more done. Possibly 3. That would be nice.

To chart my progress, I only worked out for 1 hour today instead of 2. I think I might have strained my right knee a little, so I'm going to have to take it easy. :( I was doing so well, too! Maybe I can take some time in the middle of the day to go run on the track or something.

We almost bought an elliptical today. It was on sale at GNC.com. Really pretty cheap, actually. I was on my way to grab the credit card when I realized: "Where in the heck am I going to stick this thing once it gets here??" We're moving in a few months, to an unknown location, and probably won't have as much room as we do here. (Which reminds me, if anyone knows of a nice, cheap place with at least 2 bedrooms in the area between Payson and Provo, please let me know! We would like to move out the end of February if at all possible, and would need at least a 6 month lease...preferably a 12 month lease.) Instead of the elliptical, I think we'll save our money and buy a nice steam cleaner for cleaning the kitchens and bathrooms.

Hope your knee gets better. I noticed that you have a debt free ticker on your sidebar. Have you read any of Dave Ramsey's books? You may have mentioned it and I just missed it. I can't remeber.
Also thanks for wishing me a happy anniversary.

Whoa 2 hour workouts! That's amazing! I hope your knee feels better soon. I have felt a little pain in my knees every once in a while but it normally goes away once I take it easy for a bit.

Yeah, I made lunch today to take to work and then left it sitting on the kitchen counter. The cat will probably jump up there and get into it :(

Are you kidding? I even forget what I forgot!

I need one of those big light up sighs to wear on my chest so my family can remind me about what I forget.

I just wanted to let you know that there is a flier at Fast Gas advertising a two bedroom duplex for rent in Salem for $550 a month.
