blogging will be put on hold until i return to the states next week.
the cold weather has definitely let its presence be felt and can now go far, far away until late October when i'm done with the warm weather.
crossing my fingers that april comes in with some lovely 60 degree temperatures. tired of keeping kleenex in my bag because my nose starts to run from being so cold. (although springtime allergies are much worse)
now my rant is done.

i've come up with a list of "should be doing with my time" and would like your input on what item i should incorporate into my life first:
- Daily prayers & scripture study
- Go to the gym 4x week
- Eat at least one fruit and one vegetable serving daily
- Write in my journal at least once a week
- Attend the temple at least once a month
- Learn a new skill - you choose from dance (jazz or hip hop class), photography, watercolor or oil painting, guitar lessons, knitting/crocheting or cooking
- Finding community service opportunities & then committing to one
- Write in option: ________________________________________

Photographer - if i still lived in the west i would pay her money to teach me skills from her talents as an artist
Crafty Coloradian - a mother of three girls and a Colorado devotee who also has a craft blog...how cool is that!
thankfully i was given a reprieve of about 8 months. yet, i have yet to finish book #2. i recently took it to CT to see Claire because i realized that July will be here before i know it and i really don't want to buy tickets, licorice, popcorn, water for netter, soda for claire as well as pay for a cab home. instead i want them to provide the ticket, treats and transportation for me. apparently i'm a taker not a giver.
now i'm on a quest to get all of the books completely well before the deadline. if only they weren't so big and bulky.
p.s. another motivation was the realization that robert pattinson stars in one of the potter movies that i haven't seen where harry fights a fire breathing dragon that used to be an evil queen while trying to reach hermoine who has cast a sleeping spell over herself...or something like that.
let me know if you likey or think it is silly.

here at the NY broadway production they have a same day lottery for front row tickets at a very discounted rate of $26.25 each. the lottery happens 2 1/2 hours before each performance. people have a 1/2 hour to put their name and a request of up to 2 tickets on a green index card. then a guy puts them in the spinning wheel and pulls out names all while the anxious masses wait outside. he comes out and announces the winners while they gleefully line up next to him.
i have done the lottery countless times - at least 25+ - since the musical opened in 2003. i have NEVER won. once i was the recipient of my friend T being picked. almost everytime i put my name in the lottery it was for the benefit of someone else. i decided that enough is enough.
so now i'm out to beat the lottery - every Wednesday evening i go to the box office which is a short 7 minute walk from my office and attempt to beat the lottery. i don't necessarily have a burning desire to see the show again, but the fire burns to BEAT the lottery. tonight is the next attempt. i promise to blog the moment that my persistence and constancy is rewarded. wish me luck!

i'm sure cheering to the Cougar fight song would be the proper motivation for Blake and Kenny. just a friendly auntie suggestion.
i have become addicted to playing Rock Band on my brand new Wii. i am already to the "Medium" level on most songs. keep working hard to open up all the music that is currently locked away from me like The Middle by my boys from Jimmy Eat World.
i deeply apologize for my lack of posting because of my quest for rock superstardom. i promise to try harder.
