The last time I contributed here was Jan. 19. There's so much optimism in January. I'd better get cracking if we're going to hit our 25 posts for the year.

Of course, we've since misplaced that wonderful checklist book (lots of stuff got moved during bathroom renovations), so we're not even sure how much has been complete. Off the top of my head: We had a week with no TV. Our fireplace now has a surround. Jason and Kiki did a ropes course (Monkey Trunks counts). We made a budget; sticking to it wasn't on the list.

This time of year - as the first day of school and my birthday approach - is when my secondary self-improvement sense kicks in. I'm pretty sure I've alluded to it in this blog before. Yes, I've been making lists and trying to think of ways to structure my days so that I'm

I kept track of what I did with my free hours yesterday. I've made fun of people who share every little minute detail of their day-to-day lives (as if I really care about how they organize their sock drawers), so I'm venturing into some uncomfortable territory here. I figure that anyone who doesn't want to bother just won't read. Won't make a difference to me.

So where does my time go?

9:30-11 - Wrote first blog entry, shaved legs, ate breakfast, picked up living room while watching last two episodes of "The Next Food Network Star" - Go, Big Daddy!
