Thinking about: Doing a Spending Fast. I met with a mortgage specialist at my bank last week to discuss buying a home in the near future. The meeting was incredibly helpful and cleared up a few misconceptions I had about mortgaging a home. Grant and I went away over the weekend and after we got back we decided that we need to make some changes in our lifestyles and get down to serious saving. I plan on sharing more about this as we go along. Have you checked out Anna's blog And Then We Saved? So helpful!

Feeling: The way one does after 3 days with a headache/migraine. Tired, unmotivated, blah blah. Hoping that tomorrow is better.

Watching: The Killing. 26 episodes in 2 days. I was completely sucked into this show! Just like a good mystery novel, I had to know who dunnit. We also watched a new episode of Supernatural tonight and Looper, which I took out from the library. 

Reading: After finishing Part One of A Diet for a New America, I lightened things up with How to Talk to a Widower. Now I'm ready to get my laugh on with Kelly Oxford's new book Everything is Perfect When You're a Liar.

Listening to: Grant snore in our bedroom and our cat snore in her bed next to me. I'm looking forward to the release of She & Him's new record Volume 3 on Tuesday!

Looking forward to: Edmonton Public Library is hosting a Books to Buy sale this weekend. Since my mom is the msytery novel queen, I may drag her downtown to browse through books. It's also Royal Bison this weekend. Since I have no money I'm just going to browse longingly through all the beautiful handmade goodies. Oh, AND in just over a week I'll be heading down to Austin, Texas to spend to the weekend with friends. SO excited!!!!

Making me happy: cuddles. both human and cat.

How have you guys been? What's new? Plans for the weekend?
