Everything you own in a box to the left

OMGosh, it’s time to get organized.  I’m tired of having this big wonderful home that is completely taken over by boxes and crap.  I have a huge patio that I’ve wanted to do something with…like this or this or this (I mean, just picture it with a screened in patio feel):

 

And it was a total mess since me and my dad fixed up the kitchen…well, yesterday, while thinking to myself, how can I stop thinking about food SOOO dang much (I’m a total food-aholic and being on this restricted diet has me wanting like you have no idea) so I do what I always do, I googled what I could do to stop that process and I came across a list of things that can distract you…and guess what was on that dumb list…cleaning.  Awa man!  Well, now when I get home I realized that I don’t have anything to do since I don’t cook a ton anymore so I decided to make myself a list of things that I want to take care of before 12 noon on Saturday.  The list is:

  1.  Clean that dang patio
  2. Organize and make good use of the closets
  3. Clean that dang garage
  4. Make up a really good laundry area
  5. No more, I’m not wonder woman!

So, last night, I got home at like 5:30 or so…Dan and I had dinner and by 6:00 I was changed and working on making that patio better!  Well, I tell you what, not only does it look SOOO much better (although now it needs some decorating) but I’m sure I burned off some calories doing it and it TOTALLY distracted me from even remembering that I was trying to avoid thinking about the F word (saaaaay!).  Now, here is the crazy thing…My father comes home from work (he’s a painter) and while I’m sweeping up the patio he and Dan are moving a Ping Pong table out to the patio.  He’s been working at Scott Stapp’s house (yes, the lead singer for Creed) and they were getting rid of an old ping pong table and asked if he wanted it…well, I had mentioned to my Dad that I would LOVE to get a ping pong table for my big ol’ patio and here we got one for free, and bonus, it was a famous guys…That’s, pretty cool!  But really, how weird is it that the day I decide to make the dirty patio my bitch is the day my father brings home a big old ping pong table…maybe if I clean out the garage tomorrow he’ll bring home a car?  You think?

About internjessica

My name is Jessica Pac but you might know me as Intern Jessica from The Radio Dan show, or possibly as Pac Bauer, roller girl extraordinaire from The Palm Beach Rollergirls! I’m 31 in 2010 (if this blog is years and years old you do the math) and I live in beautiful Boca Raton Florida (no, I’ve yet to run into Seinfeld’s parents although I just might be dating myself with that comment!) I have an amazing husband, Dan, and a beautiful step-daughter, Alexa. I have 2 sisters, Rebecca is 4+ years younger than me, she lives about 2 hours away and Stephanie is 5+ years younger than me and she lives just about ½ hour away. She has 2 sons, my nephews, Nicky and Elliott. Nicky has autism and is progressing wonderfully as the years go by and Elliott is a wonderful younger brother! We have a cat named Charlie who is a gray tuxedo cat and for some reason I talk about him way more than I think I should, although I can’t imagine I would write a lot about him. I have a day job that I love with Waste Management and if I’m there forever I wouldn’t mind not one bit. I love going to movies and I love watching television shows. My mother passed away from brain cancer when I was 15 years old. She was a super strong super short super cool lady and I always wonder about how it would have been to have her in my life. As I mentioned before, I’m on The Radio Dan Show with my husband and I hope that this is something that we continue to do for years to come. I also play Roller Derby for a league here in Palm Beach County and although I’m nursing a broken ankle I really hope to continue to do it in the future! I’m orig from NY just like a lot of people here in Florida and I think that sums me up for now. I’m beginning this blog Nov 2010 and I hope to be able to keep up with it because I think that blogging is a wonderful way to remember things that you just don’t realize that you’ll forget. I know because I kept a blog before and sometimes when I read back through it I can’t help but be amazed about the things we’ve done and seen together throughout our lives.
