My Final Monday

That's right!  Today is my last Monday of the school year!  I was so tempted to just wear jeans the last 9 days of work but I suppose I can save that for the last 5 (finals for the kids & a teacher day.)  Knowing that this year is almost over I am in such a good mood about going to work.  If y'all could say a couple prayers for me I'd really appreciate it.  My grandma was recently in the hospital & got moved into a nursing home until she can get her strength back.  My grandpa hasn't been able to visit her because he is fighting a cold and doesn't want to get her sick.  So if you could say a little prayer for them that would be great!  And then I still don't have a teaching job lined up for next year so I'd also really appreciate prayers for finding one soon!  Linking up with Miss Biana!

My work week had been so shitty that I decided to duck out a little early Friday on my off period to go get my nails done.  It had been forever since I had gotten a mani/pedi.  It felt amazing.  Between just being plain exhausted from the week, the complimentary wine, & the massage I could've just fallen asleep right there.  I got ORLY polish on my nails & toes.  My manicure is Neon Heat & my pedicure is On The Edge.  I am ready for summer now!  When I got home I laid down briefly before hopping in the shower & getting ready for a girls' night out with Kathrine & Emily.  We met up at  Star Cafe for supper because I'm pretty sure that is the only place that I ever actually eat when I'm there.  I even text Kathrine asking if she was going to hate me if I suggested there again.  Hey I like what I like!  Plus, it's way more reasonably priced that the other places, ie steakhouses, that are down there.  We then hit up PRs for a drink & were about to call it a night before going into the Thirsty Armadillo mostly so we could go to the bathroom & then got sucked into the throwback rap/hip hop that was playing so we wound up staying until finally an impeding storm sent us home.

I was going to get up at a decent hour & get so much done.  I actually did wake up at a decent hour, 8-8:30, but I didn't get out of bed until 11.  I was actually pretty productive too.  I got caught up on blogs, I went grocery shopping, did a little bit of food prep for the week, dishes, 3 loads of laundry.  On the other hand I didn't get dressed until 3-4 when I finally went to the store & also watched a lot of One Tree Hill while doing laundry & cooking.  It was actually a kind of perfect Saturday.  I didn't get all of my food prepped for the week.  Just some snacks (deviled eggs & hard boiled eggs) & breakfasts (burritos.)  I didn't feel like going back to the store though for the ingredient I was missing for my suppers.

Sunday I was woken up around 6:30 by a thunderstorm so I decided to stay up.  I love thunderstorms.  I laid in bed for a little bit just listening to it before getting up to make coffee.  I managed to get a lot done again without actually doing a whole lot.  I listened to a lot of classic rock on vinyl while prepping my lunches (meatballs) & cleaning up my living room.  Other than that I don't actually know what I did.  I applied for a lot of jobs, talked to my mama on the phone, got summer session of grad school paid for, & just messed around online in general.  

I decided to shut down my blog Twitter account because like 30 people followed me & I NEVER used it.  Legit the only thing ever posted to it was my automated blog posts from Dlvr.It.  So I decided to switch that to my personal account which I actually use, although still not nearly as much as I used to.  I used to be on Twitter all day long all the time & now half the time when I go on I maybe retweet some people but that's a lot of it.  But because I do use that one more & have closer to 1200 followers I'm just getting it all done on there.  So if you're on Twitter & want to keep following me, or even start, here it is!  

That evening Kathrine & I met up at 54th Street Bar & Grill for supper.  The food was really good but the service was really terrible.  I used to be a waitress so I'm forgiving of a lot & almost always tip 20+%.  So if I tip you 10% you know you sucked.  She was never around, was slow as all get out, both of our orders were either missing things or had things added, & she just looked like she did not care at all the whole time.  After supper we got froyo from Menchies.  When I got home I was so tired I barely made it from couch to bed & out of regular clothes into PJs.

Overall it was just the kind of weekend I needed.  Very productive without really having to leave home a whole lot or change out of basketball shorts & a t-shirt.
