Waxing lyrical about spring cleaning

June 14th, 2007 at 10:23 am

For some unknown reason the mood to do some spring-cleaning struck me just now.

In just about two hours, I cleared out two drawers full of junk, odds and ends, and all manner of old papers and receipts (the oldest receipt was from 1997!)

Among my assortment of junk were a lot of relics from my high school days. Notes from friends, photos, cards, etc.

I also found my old school bus passes. Man, I looked like such a dork on them! sigh... But going through those things brought me back though. Sometimes I miss those old teenage days... but then I remember that puberty = hell and I feel grateful to be an adult.

Anyway, back on topic.

It feels really good to clean out those couple of drawers. Over time, I've grown resigned to the fact that they were disaster areas that can never be recovered short of some kind of natural disaster.

And I also just kept cramming more stuff in there, making it worse. Like some kind of massive car pile-up that just keeps on building.

So finally clearing them out was a psychological battle won. I feel like I slayed a really messy, disorganized, and sometimes sticky (I had left some old candy in there and a couple of ancient batteries had leaked) dragon.


$12.90 Sandwich Maker

June 12th, 2007 at 11:09 pm

I went grocery shopping yesterday. While I was there I also bought a new sandwich maker which was going for only $12.90. It was an impulse buy (cheap though!) because I've never thought of buying one before until I saw it, but I'm really happy with it Smile

I love sandwiches, and having them toasted now is great. I'm hoping this will encourage me to cut down on ordering in even more.

I haven't popped by the site for a while, and I just saw that the layout has changed so much!

Very, very cool...

When I have time, I think I'll play around with all those lovely colour options. Smile
