Sorry for my absence. I know the world is waiting with baited breath to see what exciting twists and turns my life has taken *cheesy grin*. Seriously though, the summer is almost over...I am officially 30 now, which has ceased to be a little depressing to me, even though I've had almost a whole month to come to grips with it. I was going to create a blog post to celebrate my accomplishments and all the good things about getting older, but I couldn't do it without being braggy. I'm still a little chubbier than I would like to be due to my post-wedding eating blitz. I have begun to cut back and exercise, and the plan is pursue these healthy choice in a way that fits in to my life rather than taking it over. I'll be in touch with how that goes.

One of my projects this summer was to do at least one thing a day that I am scared of. Turns out I'm scared of a lot of things that really aren't that bad. Its amazing how much these silly apprehensions hold me back from actually accomplishing anything.

Another project that is slowly shaping up is re-doing the kitchen. AJS and I dreamed of moving into a single family house in one of the idyllic baltimore suburbs after the wedding...but that isn't happening due to the stupid economy. So, I rolled up my virtual sleeves yesterday and spent too much time at and figuring out cabinets, dishwashers and other appliances that might fit. One of the good things about a small house in a not-so-fancy-or-hip-neighborhood is that our kitchen is small and we might not have to spend a ton of money to make it MUCH nicer. So thats what we're going to try to do. We will happily kiss the painted over metal cabinets with doors that fall off, the disgusting fridge, the malfunctiong oven, and most of all the hole in the linoleum floor a happy good bye.
