Chicago, more renovation, and Squid Game | Weekly Snapshot

I think I can say that Fall is finally here. Or at least the crisp Fall air is finally here. The colors not so much. We still haven't gotten around to any Fall activities, and at this point, I'm not sure when or if we'll do them.  Renovation updates We are almost at the halfway point into our ground floor renovation. The flooring is almost done, cabinets are ready to be setup, appliances are here. It's exciting to be on the other side of the renovation when things are getting finished. There's still easily 2.5 weeks worth of work left in the kitchen, and another 2-2.5 weeks for the master bathroom, so mid-November is likely when we are done with the renovation. Assuming no delays.  Flooring coming along All of us are pretty exhausted at this point. Walking up and down the stairs to pick items from the makeshift pantry and then cook on the main floor gets old very fast. I have been able to work from home without issues and I'm grateful for that.

The Sunday Salon (A new car) -- September 12, 2010

The Sunday 
Salon.com

As the title says, I just got my new car! *drumroll please* It's a white 2007 Honda Accord, and I'm just relishing driving the huge sedan! I don't have any pictures yet, so I'll let you google if you wish. ;-)

So, my last week was spent almost entirely on finishing the car business - you know, the loans and the paperwork, and the insurance, etc. And after getting the car - inspection, registration, etc. And the malls for a fun ride. LOL! You can see I am excited, because this is my first car, so it feels great!

I had a hectic week basically. Today's my only weekend - but hopefully this means my very busy days are over.

As I said last week, I'm doing the Game On! Diet, which isn't going too well for me, because I've always thought my diet was healthy - and I even lost weight with that. But now, I'm expected to tighten it further? I somehow don't see myself succeeding in that, but like I said, I'll use this as an opportunity to get to know my meals even more intimately. Other than that, the game is going decent - not excellent, because I get lazy every once in a while.

Off to read some book now - Happy reading and happy blogging!

A new car! That is so exciting! I love the idea of a new car even though mine is doing just fine :-)

Don't get down on yourself about the Game On Diet. Life shouldn't be about "should-ing" ourselves
