Linking up with Biana!
There's a chance I left work 30 minutes early. Having the last period of the day off is weird. Like it's awesome because I get to end my day in peace & quiet. But I also feel a tad in limbo because the people that have the other periods off are allowed to go run errands & such during their conference...but I feel like it'd be frowned upon if I just left work at 1:20 to run errands or whatever since I wouldn't be coming back. But, on Friday I decided to stay for the first hour of my conference & then duck out the last 30 minutes & head up to Old Chicago. I got myself some fried pickles & drank a couple of beers while I read an article on communications ethics. When I got home I took a bubble bath, watched an episode of Shameless, & then pretty much went to bed. It was like 9:30-9:45 when I turned off Netflix & called it a night.
When I woke up I decided to tackle blogs from the week. I had read almost 0 all week so I caught up on pretty much all of them that had been posted Tue-Fri & then when I got that far just hit mark all as read. I had a massage appointment at 1 so I shaved my legs so the person wouldn't be disgusted by me & then was on my way. The massage was alright. It wasn't the worst one I've ever had but it certainly wasn't the best. As I was getting dressed I was convinced I had somehow lost my socks. I was going nuts trying to figure out where they were. They weren't in my bag, they weren't on the floor, they were nowhere to be found. So I said screw it, put my boots on without socks, cringed, & went to my car. I emptied out my bag...still no socks. Luckily I have a bunch of shoes in my trunk so I grabbed some sandals & put those on because boots without socks grosses me out. I headed to Old Chicago again so that I could finish up the current mini tour. On the way to OC I found one of my socks in the leg of my pants but still no sign of the other. I ate some lunch, drank some beers, read more communications ethics, & got my free shirt. I talked to my friend for awhile on the phone & then just couldn't sleep so I stayed up until midnight making myself cry from laughing so hard at tumblr. It wasn't until I was getting ready for bed & took my jeans off that I found the other sock as it fell out of my pants. Finally at midnight I made myself go to sleep.
I had so many plans of being productive. I wasn't really. I had an appointment to donate blood at 10 & was finally successful at it. Not that I really try all the time but the last couple of times I have tried I've been turned away because my iron is too low so I've been taking supplements. I made a trip to the grocery store & also to my storage unit so I could get my crayons for my students. In between trips I spent a lot of time on the phone with above said friend. The only thing I cooked this weekend was Santa Fe Chicken for suppers/lunches this week. I ordered a couple more textbooks for grad school & also finally ordered a new charger for my phone with a 6 foot cord since mine is a POS anyway. I'm super excited about the charger...you have no idea. I also started to file my taxes, & if my school's website was working properly I could have finished them. Hopefully they get the page fixed today because all I really have left to do for my taxes is add in the tuition I paid last semester & then I'm done. I love getting my taxes done ASAP. Like by the time the middle of January rolls around I start getting impatient waiting on my W2 forms.
