I feel exactly the same way about blogging (though it's been eight days since I posted). I was never able to keep a paper diary more than 3 or 4 days. I think I'm closing in on 2 years on the blog.

Love the furniture, glad you were able to fall in love with the same thing. If you finish unpacking before I do--I will weep. Good luck with getting rid of boxes.


ooo, nice! Can't wait to see it in person! At some point...


I love the furniture! Rich/warm wood is so yummy.
I know what you mean about the diary thing. I always tried to keep one but feared it would be read. Now I type much faster than I can handwrite...but I find scrawling stuff out very therapeutic, and am still timid about the whole spilling your guts online thing.


I could never keep a diary either, but that seems to be a common thing. I think with blogging it's easier for me to write, because I know I have some sort of an audience, but I don't know.

I am loving the furniture, by the way, I think they are fabulous choices and you flourish and swish all you want -- it's a woman's touch that makes a house a home ;-)


I've kept a diary ever since I was 7 years old. Now that I've retrieved them from my mother's house, I'm seriously considering burning all of them.

I did hold on to a hard copy of the fishbowl blog though. Most of those were snippets I was saving in case I ever got around to writing a book.


It's interesting... while I was unemployed, the SAME thing happened to me. I really struggled to get motivated. Once I got a job, again, I've been back to blogging pretty much every weekday.

Something about having a routine. Maybe you could trick yourself and write out a schedule for tomorrow? I did that once or twice, and it worked, but then I'd forget to make a schedule for myself for the next day, and I was back to staring at the ceiling all day long.

Kansas is flat... I want my Mt back

"and I think with a little time Colby will come to appreciate my love for candles and vases of all shapes and sizes. And even if he doesn't, I live here more than he does, so they're here to stay!"..... Tolerate and appreciate are two different things my dear.


Love your furniture; love Cost Plus! I have a very similar console. What would you put on it if not a vase and some candles?? That's what it's FOR.

My fear with loving Cost Plus so much is that people will start to think I'm one of those non-Asian people with all the Asian decor and feng shui candles and fountains and lucky bamboo and crap and Who do you think you are, White Girl?


Love the furniture. BJ and I bought a lot of stuff we had to assemble too, and we hated ourselves for it after a while. But those memories have faded and we don't look at the furniture with hatred.

Want to hear something sad? I kept a journal from the time I was 12 and I also wrote at least once a month letters to my great aunt from the time I could write.

I got the brainy idea to take all of it and type it up into my computer (including accounts of the birth of my chidren), then toss the paper version.

Well I don't need to tell you what happened to the electronic version, right?

So sad
