*Sorry I slacked a little bit over the weekend…truth was, I was too busy turning in assessment portfolios, having my car stop working, having our laptop stop working, and wishing that I could stop working…
*First good news: the car was just the battery. So instead of having to get a new car, I just had to pay over $100 for a new battery.
*Second good news: amidst all the studying I was supposed to be doing over the weekend, I still managed to go to Maple Grove Hot Springs with Matt and our friends Kayla & Sam, watch “While You Were Sleeping,” watch the last Harry Potter movie, start a new book, and work out at the gym. Basically what happened was that I decided I didn’t feel like studying for my finals (and the crashed laptop didn’t help), so I didn’t. The sad part? I still got A’s on all of them. Education program, how easy you are!!
*I am officially DONE with ALL finals, homework, and classes for my whole undergraduate career! Hurrah!
*Have I mentioned on here about our work door? We have heavy-duty double doors that you push on to exit. In case you’re wondering why that’s important, I’ll let you know that when winter started, we’ve taken to locking one of them. (Can you all see where this is going?) Anyway, I kinda wish I had a camera set up, because there’s nothing funnier than watching every single person run straight into the locked door on their way out. Am I terrible for laughing about this?
*Everyone at my workplace (literally, everyone) is in a meeting except me. They’ve actually entrusted me to run the entire operation for the next two hours, even though I can hardly tell a septic tank from a grease trap. Good thing no one’s coming in…
*The unfortunate thing about everyone being in a meeting is that I drank a LOT of water about an hour ago and now have to wait until the meeting is adjourned before I can rid my system of it. When I told Matt, he said that that was just my curse in life: always having to go to the bathroom at the most inconvenient times. So true.
*Sometimes I feel like twirling around like a crazy ballerina at my workplace. Especially on days like today. Pandora, why must you be so great?
*Why IS it that the phone will be silent forever, and then EVERYONE decides to call at the same time? I just had four people call in the last three minutes. And then two more people call within a millisecond of each other. I have taken down NINE message in the 30 minutes this meeting has been going on. I think this is a sneaky test that my work is giving me to see how I handle it…I bet they’re all not even in a real meeting. They’re probably all just upstairs eating donuts and drinking orange juice and laughing at me run the whole place. That’s what I would do if I were up there.
*13 more days here at work. Not that I’m counting.
*Today I woke up to Matt just holding me and stroking my hair. The weird thing was, somehow that all got worked into my dream. But the best part was that when I woke up, it was real :). Morning cuddling is the best.
*All right, I’d best at least pretend that I’m doing something while the phone isn’t ringing off the hook. Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday!
What’s going on with you today?
