You know, I think I forgot to say anything, but as of July 28th, this blog has been around for an entire year. Happy birthday, Day Old Sushi!
Now that that’s out of the way, on to how my week went! This morning I made brunch for my parents and M. I made almond cinnamon pancakes with caramelized apple topping and homemade whipped cream. Bacon on the side, of course. Bacon always on the side. It turned out very well! I even put some blueberries in a few of the pancakes – mainly for my dad since he loves blueberries. My parents paid us back by making chicken kiev for dinner. Served over rice – it was delicious! I can’t wait to eat the leftovers for lunches at work!
I’m going to start writing more letters. I might make a longer post about it, since I did get the idea on Pinterest, but who doesn’t like getting things in the mail that aren’t bills or credit card offers? I have tons of stationary and fun ideas about how to decorate the envelopes and such. I’m very excited because (hopefully) sending the letters means I’ll get letters in reply.
Today I also finally got around to cleaning my room. Vacuuming, deep-cleaning the bathroom, picking up, taking out the trash. It looks much better down here now and I feel a lot better. I’d been putting off the cleaning for weeks now. Partly because I’m a terrible procrastinator and also partly because I just didn’t have the time.
Also as part of my cleaning, I started tidying up my desktop and other computer files. I also updated my planner with things like bill due dates and appointments. Usually, I just wing it or use post-it notes to remind myself of things. But I’m trying to get my life more in control. The more organized I can get myself, the better off I’ll be, I think. Trying to pay off student loans and trying to find a different job weighs a lot on my mind and I forget about the little things like needing to call to reschedule a doctor’s appointment or making a payment on my credit card.
Do you, my dear readers, have any tricks on staying ahead of the game? Getting organized? Share in the comments!
