Day 40: Organized My Computer Files

Today I organized my computer files.

And by organized, I mean I made a folder called “random crap,” and I put all kinds of files into it.

Today’s idea was from February’s benicebox.

And here’s a photo of Pickle, my poor slob cat (I’m watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the third day in a row).

Day 36: Thanked an Olympian in My Life

So I may not have watched the start of the Olympics. But I did use this exciting time as inspiration to thank an “olympian” in my life. (This idea was in February’s benicebox.)

So I wrote a letter.

My dad is my best friend.

He is my role model.

He is my go-to person.

I hope he knows how much I appreciate and depend on him, but it doesn’t hurt to remind him.

(Spencer wrote to her “Mommy Dearest.”)

Who’s your “olympian”?

Day 19: Celebrated “Popcorn Day”

I didn’t do anything all day (except lie in bed, and wonder how the people above me can vacuum a room for so long). It was tough to drag myself out of the apartment to go to my sister’s place across town. (And, the “warm” weather made me feel so incredibly guilty for staying inside all day.) But, I did it.

I left the apartment, I socialized, I ate the dinner she made me, and then I made stove-top popcorn in honor of “popcorn day.”

I knew about the day because of my benicebox list (I also got the kernels in my January box). Again, gotta love it.
