I'm "borrowing" an idea from my fellow blogger, Katie, from The Perks. She usually blogs once a week about the good, the bad and the ugly. I thought that it may be fitting for me today.
The Good: I haven't had to open the snail mail for over a week now due to excessive slackerdom.
The Bad: I just opened the one foot stack of mail and it was quite daunting especially with all those political ads.
The Ugly: My paper shredder got jammed with so much stuff that needed to be shredded.
The Good: I had more time over the weekend to "relax" due to our computer crashing at the end of last week. (Why didn't I open the snail mail then???)
The Bad: Instead of relaxing I fretted over said crashed computer and what valuable info might possibly be lost.
The Ugly: Food Stylist had to reformat the computer and everything was lost: web bookmarks, email address book, saved emails, Quicken etc. *cry*
The Good: Since the computer crashed, Food Stylist moved it (a desktop) to our coffee table in the living room. This made for a more conducive repair area since the TV is in the living room. Fun to surf the net while watching TV since he repaired it now. :) Geez, I need a laptop!!
The Bad: A desktop is not a laptop, hence cords running everywhere that the evil cat can get to.
The Ugly: My homeschool room is a wreck since we've been doing school on the floor in the living room. I've just been dumping junk all over the homeschool table.
The Good: I think I've volunteered to dissect some small animals for the homeschool science co-op I help teach. The kids will be excited about this hands on science experience!
The Bad: Did I mention that I don't like dead animals?
The Ugly: Did I also mention that I still have nightmares about that rat I had to dissect in anatomy and physiology in 12th grade?
The Good: Brick announced that he no longer wants to trick-or-treat. Yay! No more costumes to buy! EVER!
The Bad: He wants to hand out candy.
The Ugly: I guess the money we usually spend on a costume will be spent on candy for other children. At least this will give me the chance to purchase the candy I like rather than rummaging through his treat bag for chocolate like I usually do every year.
The Good: Both the new Richard Paul Evans and Nicholas Sparks' books became available for me at the library yesterday.
The Bad: That's a lot of books!
The Ugly: They're both only one week loans. :( I'm sure I'll incur library fees.
The Good: We're having Chinese food tonight for dinner.
The Bad: We're having Chinese food for dinner.
The Ugly: Did I mention we're having Chinese food tonight?
