some things

I haven’t blogged in awhile, just haven’t really been in the mood honestly. Tonight feels like a decent time to write though. I had a busy/productive weekend. To spare the boring and lazy parts, I’ll skip ahead to Sunday when I helped with the New Mexico Marathon. I was volunteering by being a “motivation station” for the runners. My mom, dad, brother and Emily all woke up WAY before the sun was awake and set up on the very north side of Tramway. Truth be told, I didn’t even know Tramway goes the way it does (we were in between Sandia Casino and Country Line Restaurant – WAY OUT THERE!). Anyway, it was really fun to see runners smile because of the signs we had and the “woo hoos” we were giving!

I forgot…On Saturday I bought a new comforter from Kohl’s during their fantagreat sale:

I really like it. A LOT. It’s ridiculously comfortable and it makes me want to never get out of my bed. Oh! AND the bed frame is new, courtesy of someone from Craigslist who was giving it away for free. Also courtesy of my cousin Francisco for moving it for me!

On Labor Day (Monday) I decided to buy something I’ve had my eye on for awhile, an Exotic Retreat Bookcase from Target:

🙂 So, I bought it. Along with this 3-Shelf Bookcase in Espresso:

I spent 2 1/2 hours building this last one, and ended up hurting my lower back a little. BUT, I finished it! Here it is:

I’m really excited about it! The other bookcase is 6-feet tall and will most likely take more time to assemble, that and I don’t have room for it in my bedroom, so I’ll just wait awhile to put it up.

I also found out I can take a panoramic picture with my camera, so this is what happened when I did that:

Other than my big purchases, I haven’t been doing much of anything. Just running. My fundraising has pretty much slowed way down these days. I still would like to get more. If anyone is interested in an Albuquerque the Magazine subscription, let me know – they are giving me $6 (half) of every subscription sold. They make good gifts!!!

Ok…time for sleep. Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
