-Mother's day is coming upppp. What to get her? What to get Conrad's mom? I have two moms now!!!
-We ate really delicious spicy chinese food from Target (freezer section) and I hope I don't regret it later.
-I'm finally getting used to my new haircut. I bought mousse and a curling iron for the sake of sanity.
-I'm making incredible progress with keeping the house clean, quitting soda (extremely gradually), and not sweating the small stuff
-I'm not doing very well at controlling my shopping urges. I've spent, like, $250 this month on new stuff for myself.
- I have homework. so...much...reading.......
- Where to move? Where to finish school? Where to work once we do move? Buy a house?

Obviously, I'm a list-oriented person. I love goals and rewards. I love writing everything down, mostly because I LOVE the feeling of being able to cross something off the list. But I'm really unmotivated to do certain things. I read Elise's blog and it had a really good idea: when you list your goals, attach a treat (not necessarily food) that you get when the goal is accomplished.

For example:

1. read Huck Finn article and answer worksheet questions; watch CSI.
2. do laundry and clean living room and kitchen; go out to dinner with hub.
3. run 2x a week for 4 weeks in a row; nonfat fro-yo.
4. resist shopping urges; paint.
5. write anthropology paper; sign up for dance lessons with conrad.

Yes these are real. No, none of them are accomplished.
