Day 626

Today has definitely been one of those days where you keep thinking it's later in the week than it actually is, then you're horrifically disappointed when you realize it's only Wednesday.

To counter:

On Sunday my cousin received his First Communion, and since it was Mother's Day and I wanted to actually see my mom, I attended.  As such...

11. Go to Mass on a day that’s neither Christmas nor Easter.

Another goal off the list!

Day 620

So I've been gone for a while.  Sorry :/  And I missed my 600 day post.  That's sad :(

Things have been crazy busy with the new house.  Unlike the apartment, where everything was just THERE, the house has multiple levels and I don't find myself on the computer level very much.

So in actual progress news, I'm actually making decent movements on completely changing my name.  Most of this is because of the move... most of my stuff where I was still "Catherine B" was tied to the apartment.  Now all those bills are under "Catherine P."  I think I'm down to a credit card and my car.

And I was elected as Historian for my alumnae chapter!  That means...

79. Hold an elected position in the alumnae chapter

Cool beans.

Day 571

So I meant to get this post up earlier, but moving is a bit crazier than I thought.  Anyway, the new flooring is in and...

41. Install one hardwood floor

We put laminate flooring in the living room and it looks awesome!  Such a pretty clean look.

I cannot get over how crazy moving is.  This is the first time I've been able to get on the computer in a week.  Our bedroom and most of our kitchen is unpacked but the rest is... eh.  The dogs are reacting pretty well, I'm proud of them.

Pictures later :)

Day 556

Ooook it's been a while.  Sorry about that.  I haven't really been actively accomplishing anything so I've held off on posting, but I have something now and it's HUGE...

40. Buy a house!
40. Buy a house!

I'm a homeowner!!!  I didn't want to say anything to keep from jinxing it, and I was always so worried that something would fall through, but it didn't, and we closed on our townhouse yesterday!!  It's a three bedroom, two full bath two half bath townhouse with three levels and a backyard.  The pups have gone through and they love the place, and more importantly we love the place :)  I'll have pics up as we improve the place (hardwood is going in soon!) but I just wanted to give that GIGANTIC update!!!

Day 500

Here we are, the every hundreth day post!  Can you believe I'm halfway done with 1001 days?  Wow.  Ok, since day 400:

I visited Carlin in college (goal 16), Trevor and Darcy let a stranger into the house, sans barking (goal 65), I got an advisor position with ZTA (goal 80), we saved 5 digits in our savings account (goal 27) which also equated to 3 months bills (goal 33).

So five goals down in the last hundred days, not too bad!  Not too great, either, but still.

In the next hundred days, I hope to buy a house (goal 40) which will hopefully lead to some cleaning goals... like keeping the apartment clean for a month (yeah, right) or getting through our boxes of paper (goal 43).  The rest I'll take as they come!

500 days down, 501 to go!

Day 494

Happy New Year!  Sorry it took me so long to get in here, life got crazy.  The house offer... didn't work out so good.  And then another failed round of looking, and then more looking and an offer is in on another house... keep your fingers crossed for us.  This whole mess is harder than I expected.

I'm thinking that Darcy made her New Year's Resolution to be the good dog this year.  She got things started early last week when I got really sick (I have no idea what happened, I was super exhausted and had an upset stomach for a week, then I was fine).  Anyway, she climbed up into bed, placed her new favorite toy on my pillow under my chin, and then walked down to the end of the bed to cuddle at my feet.  It was precious.

The halfway point in this experiment is rapidly approaching... I can't believe it :)

Day 484

I'm keeping this short and sweet because I don't want to jinx anything but...

Wish us luck, we put in an offer on a house today!!!
