in true cheri fashion, i'm posting this one day too late. too bad. it's also good to mention that i stole this idea from a blog about four sweet peas. except hers was titled 'self-portrait tuesdays'. it's good to mention this because: this weekend i'm sending the author a lovely mix CD as part of an online exchange and on it plan to write " thanks for the idea i stole that you don't know i stole".
anyway, enjoy the vintage photo people, circa 1981.

Now he wants kids. I mean, now. He said he was going to switch my birth control with sugar pills. I already hid them lastnight. I can’t blame the guy for wanted to settle down, move home and start a family (he is pushing 30), but I’ve still got time to have a 6-pack stomach and spend money on myself without feeling guilty.
Obviously moving to California would put a hold on things even if we were ready to start making babies. For now, we’ll just have to stick to practicing.

I am a bargain shopper. I will buy the crappiest color tank top in Old Navy IF it says $1.97 on the tag. I once bought a pair of jeans for $1. And not from the Salvation Army, brand new. However, I hate making large purchases. (The husband: total opposite, the more expensive, the more likely he is to buy it.) I get nervous. Sweaty. I Shake. Buying cars is the scariest thing in the world to me. Besides snakes and spiders. And Martha Stewart. But she might qualify as part of the previous category.
I do however love gadgets and technology and everything fabulously tiny. Buying my G5 was a huge step for me. I wanted to opt for the less expensive G4, but my husband put his foot down and said, you’re getting the G5. Strange, right? Well, now I want to upgrade my digital camera. I have a decent one, it takes great shots, but I wanted something more flexible and professional. So I’ve got my eye on a digital SLR camera, which will run me at least a grand. Eek. Right? $1,000 smackers is a LOT of money. I’m working now (freelance), and making good money, so I could in good conscience buy this camera…BUT. It’s those big purchases that make me sweat. (I want it really really bad though.) So do i do it, or do i concede that it's just too much to spend on a hobby?

so here i sit indoors, eating my turkey balls. they came out better this time, i skimped on the overpowering bread crumbs. as if any of you care about my balls. the point is, the sun is out, and i am in. kiss my vitamin D lacking butt. i think i'll crack into that special dark bar now and substitute my woes with chocolate.
i discovered a new line of all natural beauty products at Kohls. the hairspray works dandy. the lotion, not so much. a bit greasy. i did however purchase a yummy all natural lip gloss this week from the Body Shop, along with a big bottle of massage oil, oo la la.

Lastnight when my husband crawled into bed I told him that my grandmother was dying. He asked me if I was sad about it. I told him I didn’t know.
