Nonexistent geometric shapes, journals, and phlebotoyou? Phlebotomy!

February 3rd, 2014 · 12 Comments · Daily

I spent most of January organizing our kitchen. It’s a year-long organization project, and the end goal is to put the house on the market before 2015. (February is bedroom month. Bedroom month is going to be tricky. I believe basement month is in March. I will cry more than once during basement month.)

It appears that we have two cabinets in our kitchen that are not square or rectangular. They are more like heptagonal trapeziums with all sorts of weird angles that don’t hold a can of beans or a box of couscous. These cabinets are useless to me because I have no idea what to put in them. These cabinets actually ruined my day yesterday because NOTHING is the shape of a heptagonal trapezium. Late last night I shoved a rusty sifter into my heptagonal trapezium, and it was just as distressing as it sounds.

Ah, but #lazyjournal is NOT distressing. People are actually doing it and tagging it on Facebook and Instagram and on their websites, and feel free to join us. Do you want me to share my Lazy Journal entries here, too? Let me know. I’ll share them today, but I’ll plan on NOT sharing them in the future unless you’re interested.






Also, last Tuesday I had all of my annual bloodwork drawn, and I believe my vein exploded in my arm (I’m a clencher). This morning it looked like this.


If it’s still there in a week, I’m going to return to my tattoo place.

I hope your weekend was a good one.

    Hilarious. More info on the reasons for punishment please, especially if one of them was that you ate the whole cookie brownie (and what is that, exactly?) in one go!

    YEs — please share your lazy journal entries. I’m not on instragram and would otherwise not be able to see them!

    I love seeing your journal entries!!! I was just cleaning and reorganizing a few of my cabinets as well. Now if I can just find a place to put the stuff I no longer want until I sell/donate it. Someday I will find the kitchen table. :)

    how else could you get a bruise on that location of your arm?! Hopefully it disappears soon! Happy Chocolate Tuesday!

    Yes, I would love to see your lazy journal scribbles all the time.

    Your fob’s battery is low. The dealer can fix that for you, but it probably won’t be cheap.
