I lasted 2 weeks. Everything was going along fine and then after 2 weeks, on a Wednesday night when I had no motivation and I just wanted to be lazy and I KNEW that a Modern Family Rerun would be on....well, I almost resisted but then a friend called and mentioned that the new season of "Rookie Blue" was starting next week. (which is now tonight). I said that I was surprised that it would start in the summer but she was sure. So if I was going to break my TV ban, well I might as well as do it right then.

But the 2 week ban was helpful. Kinda like when you eat SO much junk (like during the Holiday season) and then decide to STOP and try to get a grip and eat healthy and watch the calories and nutrition and all that stuff. Sure I fall off that wagon too, but at least it got me to STOP and cut back.
Then there's the whole FRUGAL laundry line thing. That lasted even less time. Now I'm not saying that I won't use it at all but....
this is what happened. I hung a load of "dog" towels out on the line and forgot to bring them in. Of course it rained HARD that night and the towels were hanging heavy and wet. The weight of them pulled the line down and the bottoms of the towels were touching the ground and mud had splattered up onto them. Meanwhile, I had another load wet in the washer and one waiting to be washed.
So, I HAD to use the dryer!
(uh, yeah...that's NOT me, maybe in my mind but not in the mirror)
Now it seems like every day it's either so hot and humid that nothing wanted to dry or
And finally, the healthy oatmeal and fruit breakfast?
Um....I never started that. I still had some Poptarts to finish off and then there was frozen waffles that I was afraid would get freezer burn and then there was the day I was running late and went through the drive-through and discovered that I LOVE iced coffee.
So much so that I DID go get stuff to make iced coffee at home (meaning I bought 1/2 and 1/2 cream).
Sorry, I really do have good intentions. I BELIEVE that I am actually going to do this stuff and then............
I am now going to walk upstairs with my head hung low and organize my art/spare room like I've been planning....................
or maybe I'll go outside and work in the garden!
