Monday Five Countdown #15

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
It's Monday again, so it's once again time to do the Monday 5 Countdown created by Bookish Penguin.
Five Things I'm Grateful For:
  1. That we were able to afford the really nice trip that we went on.  I don't take it for granted.
  2. That I was able to see my grandparents again.  Even though my grandfather didn't know who I was it was still nice to see him and my grandmother was really so happy that I came and that she was able to meet my boyfriend.
  3. Any day where the weather is nice enough for me to go out for a long walk on my lunch hour or after work.  Yesterday we had really crap weather and today isn't much better (scratch that, just looked out the window and it is snowing again), but there was a string of days that were actually spring-like.
  4. That one of my favorite bands is going to be touring near me this summer and I was able to get tickets in the 6th row.  Even better, they are co-headlining with a friend's favorite band so a group of 5 of us are all going together.  :)
  5. That deer and/or rabbits don't like primroses or daffodils.  They have managed to eat ALL of my tulips and crocuses so primroses and daffodils are all I have flowering right now.
Four Things I Can't Stop Thinking About:
  1. What to buy my sister for her 30th birthday.  I have a couple of ideas I'm kicking around but haven't figured out exactly what I want to get.  Her birthday is only 4 days away -- eek.
  2. The warm and sunny weather down in Florida and how I can't wait for it to get that nice here in NY. 
  3. My messy bedroom.  I really hate when my bedroom gets messy/cluttered.
Three Things I Want To Accomplish This Week:
  1. Finish reading Lovely Bones.  It's pretty short and I'm already 21% through after 1 day of reading.
  2. Purchase a gift (or gifts) for my sister.
  3. Give the master bedroom a good thorough cleaning, including the closet.
Two Things I Am Working To Be Positive About:
  1. Being able to dramatically reduce the amount of diet coke I drink.  I was up to 3 cans a day.  I used to buy caffeine free to have with dinner at night but I stopped buying it.  If I have it in the house I will have it so it seemed the only way to force myself out of the habit was to stop buying it.  For much of the last week I've been having water with dinner instead.  I'd like to get down to one a day, and then down to just a few cans a week.
  2. The weather.  Seriously.  There is even more snow and a lot of rain in the 10-day forecast.  It's rather depressing.
One Random Thing:
  1. We watched a documentary called "Fat Head"  last week.  The synopsis from IMDB: "A comedian replies to the 'Super Size Me' crowd by losing weight on a fast-food diet while demonstrating that almost everything you think you know about the obesity 'epidemic' and healthy eating is wrong."  It's a worthwhile watch, in my opinion.
