Oh Happy Day!!!!

FINALLY!!! I have internet and cable TV. YAY!!! It is very exciting. Also, my roommate, Tommy, got here tonight and now there are three of us here. One more to come, but he doesn't get here until the 15th or so. It is very nice to be able to look something up whenever I want to. The cable guy came at 9:20 pm (which surprised me because it was so late, but I am not complaining :). Tommy brought with him a wireless router, and I just spent the last hour or so trying to get it to work correctly, and now it finally does. So, it is 12:15 am, and I work in the morning, so I think I am going to go to bed now. I am just so happy that I have internet, and now I can actually post pictures of my apartment so those who haven't seen it (Karen and family, Keilah, Jeannine). Anywho, Goodnight all.

A quick one

Do you ever get the feeling that you are just spinning your wheels and that you just want to scream? If you do, welcome to the club. I call it the "I am frustrated to my limits" club. Membership is open, but it comes at the cost of your sanity. Anyway, I have found a great way to help relieve some of that stress. All you do is write down everything you want to say to the person who you believe is causing the trouble. After finishing writing the letter, delete it. Although it does no real damage, it helps to releave what is couped up inside of you. Either that or just go outside a scream. Anyway, I haven't posted in a while, so I decided to write something. But, after reading my oldest sister's new post, I have been inspired to ask the question, what could you do with 200 less? Here is my list.
1. 200 less squeeks and creeks in my apartment. I promise that everystep on the stairs has bubble wrap under it.
2. 200 less bills. I do not believe that an explanation is required.
3. 200 less annoying people. Don't get me wrong; I love people, but there are some who are harder to love than others.
4. 200 less missed opportunities. This can vary from missing a bus to missing an opportunity to share Jesus.
5. 200 less excuses. I work at a bookstore, and I hear more excuses than an improv. teacher.
6. 200 less restless nights. I am currently experiencing one of those, hence, this post.
7. 200 less hiccups. Whether they are hiccups in a plan, or just plain ol' hiccups.
Well, that is my list for now. Now, it is your turn. What could you do with 200 less of?
