Day three hundred two

Woke up at 4am with a cold. This was my day. Btw that hand sani is the best ever. And I have used A LOT of hand sani. This one has moisturizers and seriously my hands felt better and better. Sterilium Comfort Gel FTW.

101 Things in 1001 Days
100 Days Update
200 Days Update

Well, here we are again. 300 days into my 1001-day challenge, and I have touched (meaning, either completed, failed, or currently in progress) 48 of my goals! And I only failed one.

Day two hundred ninety nine

My parents brought my loveseat down with them! We rearranged the living room to accommodate. I really like it!

Day two hundred ninety seven

Baby bath time! This is my niece Nicole. She's got some cute fat rolls :) My sister's family came into town for the BYU/BSU game, and my parents came down as well, so my family (including my mom's sisters) watched the kiddos while Amy & Nate went to the game. Poor baby is teething and cried and cried. She got happy in the bath though.

Day two hundred ninety six

This is looking from my desk at work (which is mine only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) -- except today because the other person was gone today -- toward the front desk. The door either has to be opened fully or closed because it has a door swing thing, but I found a door stop so now they can't see me while I'm eating lunch. I can't close it because I get claustrophobic.

Day two hundred ninety five

Does something look a little weird here? Like, maybe it's not round? We have no idea what happened. Kevin used it yesterday and it was fine. Went to use it for dinner tonight and the lid isn't even close to fitting. We only wash it by hand so it couldn't have gotten banged up in the dishwasher. It had to have taken some pretty serious damage to deform it like that, but there's no marks on it.

Day two hundred ninety four

It's hard to see, but I was locked out of my computer at work today for no apparent reason... I had left for a minute, so I locked the computer, then came back and entered my password once and got this error message. IT got it straightened out quickly, but it was WEIRD.

Day two hundred ninety two

They are painting the outside of our building so we had to bring everything inside that we store on our balcony. It's really crimping my style having half our living room taken up with bikes and BBQ!

Day two hundred ninety

This was as I left for work (it's so dark!). They're painting EVERYTHING so we can't have anything on our patio, or our rug out, or anything. Booo.
