have finally purchased curtains. Eclipse brand which block light & sound. I have slept so much better. I think I actually wake up in the morning rested.

...on to my first complaint of moving from a house to an apartment. Stupid neighbors.

The neighbor who lives above us apparently has a problem with any sort of music because they have knocked on our door twice telling us to turn it down. and my biggest complaint isn't that they asked *so kindly*, but that the music wasn't that loud to begin with. For a person who usually listens to music that you can hear throughout an entire 4 bedroom home, volume 7 is pretty friggin' low. I could hear her knocking at my door - I had a fan running and was in the kitchen moving things around looking for a recipe. My music wasn't loud. My second part of the complaint is that she asked me at 6 o'clock p.m. Seriously?! what could you possibly be doing at 6p.m. that noise is "bothering" you?

I didn't complain when I lived at my old place and could hear my neighbor across the street yelling at her white trash children. So really. My music is *too* loud? Seriously?


I think I need a cabin in the woods. complete with a kitchen worthy of a chef - even though I am not a chef by any means. I just love great kitchens.

part one - I love to cook. I really do. I like to try new ingredients and I love when a dish turns out well and then turns into a favorite. My mother was telling me about Sidewalk Shoes yesterday so I took a peek. I could have spent hour, of work time, reading all the delicious looking recipes. Then I came across Closet Cooking. Needless to say I now have two people whom make me incredibly jealous. and hungry.

another day in my crazy crazy life.

moved all the heavy obnoxious furniture into the apt. on friday the 12th. still have stuff in boxes at the old place that I need to move. I hate this part. I hate trying to find space in a place that has none.


I am tired.

must buy curtains.

No lists today. Sorry.

It's been a busy last couple of weeks. I'm finally moving. Next week is the beginning of a new location and a room-mate. I'm a bit freaked out and at the same time excited.

either way, I haven't been concentrating on things. Well, that and I've been in a bit of a funk - for lack of a better term.
