Seems appropriate to have another one of these posts (here was the initial) since isn't life all about taking the good with the bad?
The good: As mentioned here, we cleaned the house really well earlier last week for impending house guests.
The bad: Impending house guests ended up cancelling on us a day after they were supposed to have arrived, so we busted our butts for nothing.
The good: No visitors to mess up our clean house!
The good: We decided to continue the house improvement kick this weekend and installed some curtain rods and finally bought some curtains (we've just been using blinds).
The bad: We have high ceilings and thus tall windows (not a bad thing technically), so we need super-duper long curtains. Which are not easy to find. We ended up buying some standard-length curtains thinking "how bad could they look?" and ended up with culottes for our windows. So we've got step ladders, tools, rods and such all over the place while we wait for our web-ordered replacements to show up.
The good: Still running on the treadmill everyday.
The bad: No perceptible difference on my body. I'm not expecting miracles, but I'm unconvinced I am really burning 250+ calories from the workouts as the machine says.
The good: Had the best cupcake of my life last week - yellow cake with key lime custard filling and buttercream frosting. Nom!
The bad: It was from a food truck, the name of which I have of course promptly forgotten so I will likely never find this magical confection again.
The good: My pup is the sweetest most obedient little dog in the world.
The bad: Except when we go to the dog park and suddenly she forgets her name and any learned commands, and will only come back to me when she's realized she is way to small to play with that great dane and needs a bench to hide under.
