Topics covered since last update:

  • Found someone at work to switch parking spots with. My current parking setup is in a heated, underground garage and will be changing soon from $17 per month to $90. I don’t want to pay that much so I found someone who has aboveground parking and wants underground. So my $17 will go up to $35 but that’s doable; $90 was not.
  • Got some great news: my husband will be starting a new job next week! Really proud of him.
  • I did buy myself something this week but it doesn’t fall into the notebook/pen/ink category. I went to Michael’s and bought a wooden chest with rounded corners. I have been using an ARC notebook to keep track of my correspondence but I had information in three different sections for each correspondent so I wanted to streamline the system, keep all the info about each correspondent together. So I created a card catalogue for my letter-writing and I decoupaged the wooden chest to keep it in! I will elaborate with pictures in a future post. Had a TON of fun doing it.
  • This past weekend we attended a work party which consisted of cocktails, dinner and dancing with a DJ. This year’s theme was Comic Con. My husband and I didn’t dress up but we had lots of fun watching those who did. There was a little drinking and dancing going on too!

Until next week, happy writing!
