My Grandfather (papa) is like my father to me.. I just found out he is really sick and it is not going to get better. I am heartbroken right now.

Today I bought a Crock Pot and also a cookbook for it. I never received it from my engagement party or my shower, so I picked it up on my own. Best part is, I had a coupon and gift card, so I didn't have to pay anything out of pocket! My mom used to make meals for our family from a crock pot and I also enjoyed them. I started to peek through some of the receipes and can't believe how much you can make from them.
I have been trying to cook at home more, and hopefully this will give me one more option. Tonight I made a salad a Jerk Chicken. Greg isn't home he is working his second job, so he can have it when he gets home, or maybe for lunch during the week.

Going Nutty

Greg and I and about 20 friends went to a bar in Bay Shore called The Nutty Irishman. It was great, and warmer then sitting at home with no heat! We had fun, it was nice to hang out and laugh. There was a cover band called The Zoo and it was pretty good.

No heat..

Our oil burner has a problem. My husbands dad has an emergency call into the oil company. But 28 hours later we still have no heat during the coldest week o the year so far.

I heard about Project 365 and I want to give it a try. I am starting late, and looks like I missed a day already, but thats ok. I don't have to be perfect about it. This picture is for friday January 15th. We had a little snow storm and the backyard looked nice with this sky and some snow. We are lucky to live in a nice apartment at a good price.

Since it is the begining of 2009, I made resolutions like most of the rest of the population. However knowing that I usually make these yearly and have yet to stick to what I am doing, I tried something a little bit diffrent.
I really thought about what I want to do and what I have been doing. I thought about things that I would normally say (ex: lose weight, save money) and thought about ways to accomplish those goals. I can't say that they are all going to work, but I am going to give it my best shot. I am trying to set myself up for sucess, and with out the dread of not achieving what I made as a resolution.
Here are some of those goals:
1. Become more in control of my Finances
2. Be accountable for having my own savings
3. Cook at home more, prepare food for lunches for Greg and I
4. Manage my time better
5. Become healthier, both physically and mentally
6. Take classes in things that intrest me
7. Do more Charitable things, donate my time
8. Plan a vacation for Greg and I (not the wedding in Fl for October)

I am proud of my accomplishments of the first 2 weeks of the year. I made some changes and smart decsions. Hopefully I can continue to look at the list I have and make better choices and really enjoy 2009.
