How it's gone

So, it's been a week, so I'll give a little update on how my "plans" have gone (and I have a couple extra that I've done that I'll comment on, too!)

1. Organize apartment (sort-of an on-going thing, but I would like to at least get some pictures on the wall!

Nothing on the walls yet, but things are getting a little more organized. I bought an aquarium at a yard sale when I went to my cousin's graduation, so that's up and I bought some fish for it, too! I was going to post some pictures, but I forgot to bring my camera to the library! Maybe next time I won't bore you with so many words!

2. "catalogue" books --

No progress on this one yet!

3. Scrapbook my Chile pictures.

No progress on this one either (this is a little depressing!!)

4. Organize/sort school files.

YEAH!! I did actually do this one, at least the part that doesn't have to be done at the school! Now I just need them to finish waxing the floors so I can get in there and start sorting!

5. Go to the resource center to laminate some things and cut out some stuff for next year.

I think I need to wait until I can get in my room so I know what needs to be done (a.k.a. -- not done either!

6. Read at least 5 books I've never read before.

No progress yet (I guess I can't be too hard on myself -- it's only been a week!)

7. Crochet at least one afgahan.


8. Find a quote from each movie I own.

O.K.!! This one I actually started! I decided I would do 5 each time I come to the library. I was going to come last Saturday, but they didn't have internet service, so this has been done for a couple of days! I'll share them with you, too, and you can let me know if you know of a better quote for one of the movies. (my OCD kicked in -- I'm doing them in reverse alphabetical order)

You've Got Mail -- "If I hadn't been Fox Books and you hadn't been The Shop Around the Corner. And you and I had just, oh, met. (I know) Yeah -- I would've asked for your number. And I wouldn't've been able to wait 24 hours before calling you up and saying 'Hey! How 'bout, oh, how about some coffee, or, ya know, drinks or dinner or a movie . . . for as long as we both shall live.'" Joe Fox/Tom Hanks (Kathleen Kelley/Meg Ryan)

Yours, Mine, & Ours -- "Why would anybody do this?!"
"But -- it's clean"
'No - honey - I can't work with clean. I have a deadline!"
(the mom after seeing how her children had cleaned up her work area)

World Trade Center - "We're not leaving you buddy. We're Marines -- You are our mission!"

White Christmas - "You know, in some ways you're far superior to my Cocker Spaniel"

War of the Worlds - (note -- I'm between 2 quotes -- let me know what you think)

"Runnin' -- that's what'll kill ya. And I'm dead-set on livin'."


"Between me and my brother, we know everything."
"What's the capital of Australia?"
"That's one my brother knows."

On to the new stuff!

9. I've had a couple-year goal of putting together all my puzzles and marking the back with a letter for that puzzle just in case the pieces ever get mixed up. I'm up to S so far, but I still have several puzzles to go. I put together one more this past week, so that's going well.

10. re-format my computer.

I tried to do this, but when I called Dell, they said that since my warrenty is up, I would have to pay them $39 to have them talk me through it. I told them never mind. I was really confused. When I had my desktop (not a Dell), it included everything necessary to re-format the computer whenever I wanted to! My laptop didn't even have an owner's manuel! (at least not that I can find!) Anyway, I'm going to check on their website and see if there's any information there that would help me.

I guess that's all for now. Hopefully the next time I post I will have accomplished a little more.

I think that this quote is better for White Christmas. "How can a guy that ugly have the nerve to have sisters?" "Very brave parents." OR... "Go to Smith! She couldn't even spell it!"

OR... "My dear partner, when what's left of you gets around to what's left to be gotten, what's left to be gotten won't be worth getting whatever it s you've got left!"
