Let's start with happiest birthday wishes to lostt1
, and mkitty3
! Each of you is a wonderful person and I'm so glad to have gotten to know you through livejournal. I hope your days are fabulous and full of pampering. I was going to mail Jared Padalecki to y'all, but I got distracted...er...
Yesterday was basically a waste of a day for me. I have so much I need to get done before we move into the house at the end of the August. Alas, I woke up with the sinus headache of doom. I used my neti pot like three times, sat with a warm compress over my eyes, and then slept all but about five hours of my day away. Yeah, I accomplished a lot.
Today has been better. I have a slight residual headache, but nothing I can't work through. So I've gotten some laundry done, did the dishes, and started going through my clothes. I'm a fiend, my friends. I buy so many things and still wear about like 1/4 of my entire wardrobe. But this simplifying thing is really hard. I keep coming up with excuses to keep everything. "I could need this!" or "If I lose 10lbs this will fit again!" And I am trying to lose weight again - back on the Weight Watchers cult express - but it seems silly to keep tons of clothes.
There is not nearly enough good fic centered around Edmund and Lucy from Chronicles of Narnia
and they are my two favorite characters from the books. Tons of Peter and Susan fic, but where is the Edmund and Lucy stuff?
My sister finished with Stephenie Meyer's new book, Host
, so I'm hoping to get to that some time this week. I'm so behind on my reading. I'm currently reading Scahill's book on Blackwater and while it's interesting (and quite horrifying), it's a rather dry read. So I keep coming up with excuses to stop reading.
Hopefully this week goes fast at work. I have to train a new temp again. We have a Board meeting. And it's a short week. Please go fast. Please.
And then it's a long weekend. On Friday I'm supposed to go to the shore, but it's going to be so crowded. I might just opt for a movie with the boy and friends, if I can convince them that sailing is dumb (not likely). And then Saturday, I'm meeting up with benitle
to go to one of my favorite places, the Constitution Center. And then on Sunday I'll be saying, "Where did my weekend go?" Such is the cycle.
