Kitchen Sink Theory

Have you ever heard of the kitchen sink theory? It goes something along the lines that if you can just keep your kitchen sink clean, the rest of your kitchen will follow cuz with a clean sink you just want to keep your whole kitchen clean. And if your kitchen is clean, you will want to keep your whole house clean. See how this is supposed to go? Well, I am going to apply this theory into my goal of learning to dress like a grownup. I figure if I NEVER leave my house without mascara on, then I will feel more inclined to dress nicely and if I am dressed nicely, then I will be more inclined to do my hair and wear earrings and nice shoes. See how this should work? I currently boast of an amazing wardrobe of hoodie sweatshirts and jeans and the jeans are usually pajama pants. So starting now I will not leave the house without mascara on. Starting now....

Hiatus in Hell

I have taken a very long blogging hiatus. My sister informed me the other day that it has been OVER a month since I have written anything and her tone of this fact made it seem like I had done a most terrible thing. So today, I write...finally. I have thought of many things to blame my long blogging vacation on...perhaps the that a good excuse? I live in a place that I affectionately refer to as Hell. The past two weeks the temperature with windchill has been sitting around -30. Some days, it was -40 and some days we were lucky and it was -20. See...Hell. But this is not a good excuse for my absence, as the extreme cold weather just encourages me to stay indoors leaving me with plenty of time to blog. So I have no excuse, other then pure laziness, which brings me to the topic of my blog...which is my attempts to become a grownup. And nothing on my grownup list can be accomplished with laziness. Poo.
