98 Left in 1001 Days

So now you get to see how anal I am about recording the books I read. I completed adding my read books to my LibraryThing catalog. Not only do I have a database to list the books, I have all sorts of queries - by month, by year, by category, favorite authors. Then I had to add them to my catalog in LT which (then) listed only what I owned. I now have 1,920 books - owned and read - in my catalog. Go me.

Next is the picture of the paperwhite narcissus forced bulbs we purchased. They have a lovely fragrance. Unfortunately, I seem to be allergic and have been fighting a stuffy nose and headache. We may end up donating them to the church. However, the scent seems to be calming down and not affecting me so much. We'll see how it goes. It would be a shame, I do like them.

As far as weight loss goes, it isn't. I did some "last suppering" and was afraid to weigh in. Too much pasta, Cheetos and take out. However, I'm back on the wagon and have been journaling my food for the last two days. I need to get - and STAY - under 600 by January so I can weigh in at Weight Watchers. I'd like to be 5 or 10 pounds under, just in case their scale weighs heavier. Wish me luck.


  1. I came across your blog, and I wanted to compliment you on all of your awesome interests! I looked at library thing, and the art trading cards... and in reading your 101 in 1001, it looks like you have a super busy, intelligent mind. I'm jealous. It's hard for me to commit to interests and develop them. I think if I was able to really get into some projects, I'd be able to stop wandering into the kitchen and eating cookies. I'm trying out zumba, which I love, and trying to get involved with our city's heritage commission, so I hope that helps. Also, do you ever find that when you get sick, say with the flu, or a cold, that it takes an unusually long time to get well again? This happens to me a lot, right now, in fact, I'm here in bed with the flu. Being sick like this makes me mad- I wish I could be up and around. I wonder how much weight affects immune system function.. any thoughts on this?

    Sorry to anonymously barrage you, btw. I'm Lauren, I'm 24 and I'm in WA State.

  2. I'm not sure about the immune system thing though I have to admit the weight doesn't help especially when trying to recover. I had a massive skin infection in September and I'm still not 100% recovered.
