new52 | times two

Alright, two weekends ago I woke up early and didn't really know what to do with my day. I thought long and hard on what would be fun enough for a Saturday in September. Cleaning? No! Gardening? No! Ironing? God forbid! In the end I pestered the husband until he couldn't take it any longer and gave me a ride into town so that I could get myself one of these:


What a neat little gadget it is! I can certainly see myself spending way too much time with this one. The funny thing is that I said about two years ago when I got my last phone that I wouldn't ever need an Iphone. I figured I had my dSLR for taking pics and my computer for doing everything else - what would I need the Iphone for? LOL, what an idiot I am. I've consequently spent two years not knowing what I've been missing. It wasn't until the husband got one a few months back that I started to realize that it would be kind of cool to have one. So I guess I'm the last idiot in the world? But I'm happy. It's sleek, it's shiny, it's powerful. Anyone who wants to give me suggestions for cool apps, just go for it!

Last week I had a work related function with a dinner and a related activity afterwards. Now there were many firsts for me here. First, I shot a rifle. Never did that before, and I think it will be a while until I do it again. I literally sucked big time. Aim is really not a talent I was graced with at birth. Alright, so I came last in that game. Shook that off pretty easily. Then, golf. Oh man. I never played golf before either, unless you count the sporadic miniature golf game during nice summer nights. And so, no, I don't think I'll try golf again any time soon. Sucked at that game as well. The night continued with games that found me last on the list of competitors but do you want to know the biggest thing of all new things that night? I sucked big time at every game we tried that evening and was totally ok with it. With my over achiever, have-to-be-perfect-at-everything personality, this is something I will always have to work on for the rest of my life. What felt really great though was that for the first time it didn't bother me that I was completely atrocious. Let's celebrate the small things, people!

Another positive new thing that night was the macaroon I had with dessert. I can't believe I've never had one before. It was so lovely! Defenitely will have to do that one again at least.
