« Vive! La! France! | Main | The sufferings of an addled mind »

March 9, 2005

I happened to be out at the Idaho State Tax Commission site, trying to figure out where my money is, when I came across a highly useful (read: lucrative) tool. I then spent the next hour looking up everyone I know and their parents to see if I could get some kind of finders’ fee, because there’s nothing at all under my name.

Other than wasting time, I actually have been rather busy. With friends here from out of town, and attempting to get things done around the house before the B comes home, my days have been full.

Out of sheer desperation, I have joined eDiets. Since I’ve been back from France, I got into the ugly groove of eating well during the day (at work), then totally stuffing my face when I get home, most likely, in front of the computer (or while staring at the kitchen island, listlessly). I missed not having someone (my personal trainer) around to yell at me if I didn’t eat right, or suggest new things in my meal planning that may help satiate certain taste needs I have. So far (read: for the past 12 hours), it’s been working great, though I did spend a lot more at the grocery store than I normally do. The amount of food they want me to eat is insane – I should definitely not have any issues with hunger on this “diet”.

Also in the news, my longtime gym, 24 Hour Fitness, decided to close all of its doors in Boise last month. This was extremely sucky, as I had the cheapest membership around, and they were conveniently open whenever I wanted to go. So, I joined the Y, which, though it may not be open 24/7, is so extremely close to my house that I felt it was dumb to not get a membership there. I am also impressed with the amount of classes available that I will most likely not use at all.

UPDATE: I found some money that’s my mom’s that looks like it’s been sitting in a savings account for 30+ years. Rokken.


That's awesome! I don't think any of the states I've ever lived in are that conscientious about their taxpayers' unclaimed funds.

anyways, kudos to you for even trying a diet and gym and everything.

I actually have about $150 in unclaimed property in California from like 8 years ago, from some health insurance policy I had. I keep meaning to fill out the paperwork and mail it off, but I haven't yet. meh. =Þ
