this past week was great.
i took wednesday off of work so that i could spend it with aaron. i slept in late, we got breakfast, went to the museum, to the movies, i scrubbed my bathroom and cleaned my house. it was a really great day. if i could have a week off in the middle of the week every week i don’t think i would ever complain again. thursday night i went out to claypit for jen biundo’s birthday. i met some new people, and more importantly, filled myself full of delicious indian seafood.
it’s been really hard to find a balance with work and a social life because i’m just so damned exhausted after work. not to mention finding time to exercise and take care of my house and personal projects. it’s mostly a matter of me needing to make a very concerted effort. i need to work more on things that matter to me outside of the 8-5 before i go mad. it’s hard to work 40 plus and try to finish school and get anywhere, but aaron and ron talked me down when i played with the idea of slowly moving out of my position.
friday night i went to jen brown’s bye-bye boobie party. she had boobie-shaped cupcakes, balloons, everything.
i was supposed to meet louisa after she got off of work at 8, but when i got there (by bus) she told me she wouldn’t be getting off until 11 at the earliest, but would meet me there. she never showed up since she didn’t have her ID on her, but the night was saved since i got to hang out with my new found friend crystal. she’s a dollface.
saturday i dropped in on my grandmother’s house and saw the ginormous house she lives in (3 stories!). we made lambchops, potatoes and corn on the cob together and ate it outside. she was adamant that i eat ice cream. and talked non-stop about how happy my brother was to get the afghan she made him (“purple and yellow! it’s what he wanted!”).
this week i will:
clean out my car
go to the gym often
call my mom
hunt for my future bike
get my sewing machine fixed
