what is it?

Today is Friday!

I get off work in less than 30 minutes, and I’m free for the afternoon! I need to decide what to do. I am for sure driving to our old place to hopefully pick up my shes that were wrongly delivered there. After that…anything I want! I am going to get lunch, play with the dog, probably play some Rock Band 2 and possibly work in the yard. After Brian gets home from work, we’re heading to the lake for the night. Don’t worry. We’ll be back Saturday evening for sure.

Sheena is awesome for teaching Sunday School this weekend! Toot toot to her.

How could I forget?!?!?! The Manchester Orchestra concert is Sunday night! Be there or be super lame!

GOOD THING: can’t stress this enough: FRIDAY!
BAD THING: nothing unless being sleepy counts

link fixed

I don’t know why the link didn’t work before, but it should be find-able now. You really should take the test! Here is the link again so you have it in two places:

I
might take it again sometime to see if I can beat my own score, but honestly, it hurts my eyes after the first two columns out of four. I kind of half-assed it the first time after I finished half of it, and I doubt I could try any harder next time.

take this test!

It can be found in this blog post: http://whatwouldjaneaustendo.blogspot.com/2009/05/internet-fun.html

It tests your eyes and how they detect different hues. The lower your score, the better. I got a 7!

The bad thing is it depends somewhat on the quality of your computer monitor, so it’s a little flawed, but what the heck. My score was really good, so I’ll take it! Let me know what you get!

GOOD THING: brought a decent lunch from home today
BAD THING: didn’t sleep that great again last night

holiday weekend

Our long weekend was good! I started it off early by getting some errands done Friday before Brian got home from work. I also planted some free plants in a hanging basket for the front porch! That will look much better than the dead ones from a few months back. I haven’t bothered with it since they’re so high that most people can’t see them anyway.

We went down to the lake. I thought we were coming home Saturday evening, but I was wrong! Brian kept wanting to stay really bad, so I decided to let him have fun and hope the weather got better each day. It kind of did; we did eventually get to wakeboard, and we went out in the boat several times. Some other things that happened were: Choxie jumped in the water all by herself and swam after Brian in the kayak! Choxie puked up a brick of goose poop she’d eaten! We visited with some family friends that dropped by the house! I got to wakeboard for the first time with my new board and bindings! They were awesome and so much better! I went basically 4 days without fixing my hair and without makeup! I got to sleep around 12 hours each night! I got Captain D’s for dinner one night and rented Twilight (yeah, yeah – we were curious, and the options were limited)! I can’t think of anything else, but it was fun. The weather was kind of crappy, and I felt dirty the whole time because of mud and stuff, but that’s okay.

After we came home, I took a shower in my own house and put on makeup so I’d feel more normal, then we went to Longhorn for dinner and ate for free with my giftcard I won last week! After that, we went to Game Stop to buy Rock Band 2!

Work today kind of stinks because I’m not ready to start using my brain again, but it’s fun to see everyone, of course.

Tonight, we’re going to the dollar theater with Casey & Sheena. We haven’t seen them in like 3 months!

GOOD THING: Tomorrow will be Wednesday already!
BAD THING: stomach still feels weird after a few days, but it’s getting better

hurry up!

I am sitting at work, and the time is passing so slowly! I just have another hour and 15 minutes or so, so maybe, juuustttt maybe, it won’t be so bad. I was actually pretty busy earlier, so I thought that would help the time fly by, but I was wrong.

Last night, Choxie threw up a huge glob of sunflower seeds! It was kind of gross. Don’t worry – she ate it all again.

HOLY CRAP – I just got a piece of the wasabi flavoring from my yummy almonds stuck on the side of my tongue way back in the back, and it almost choked me! My eyes watered instantly. The almonds aren’t hot, but I guess there are places in your mouth that are really sensitive to spicy stuff or something.

I’ve decided I really want to get Rock Band 2, so maybe we will have it sometime soon.

GOOD THING: anything I want for lunch today!
BAD THING: rainy weekend again 😦

If you’re looking for something to do Saturday during this holiday weekend, there’s apparently something going on at the Virginia Samford Theater/park called Broadway, Bluegrass & BBQ, and the tickets are just $10. That could be fun. What’s not to love about bluegrass and BBQ? I really want some Moe’s, now.

i win!

I won a $25 gift card today that is usable at four different restaurants. One of those is Longhorn, which is one of my very faves!!!

Today, all of the support staff at work went to a workshop. We do this every year. It’s usually pretty fun and nice to be away for the day, and the fact that they give away tons of door prizes doesn’t hurt!

Lots of things happened today that were really annoying to me, but I will not rant about them on here in detail. I already griped to Sheena about the food situations, so I’ll spare her especially. I will just say: I woke up very late but made it on time (first!), got screwed out of breakfast, the lunch was super unhealthy, and someone’s phone was making dying beeps from 8 AM-4PM. SO ANNOYING. The good part is that I got home before Brian still! I assumed it’d be closer to 5 before I got home. It was 4:11!

I think I’m going to have eggs and sausage for dinner! Brian is gone playing tennis with Casey right now, and I am unsure if I can wait on him or not. We’ll see! I am currently passing time by watching Wheel of Fortune and chatting with Sheena online. haha! I just gasped out loud at the TV because one girl came so close to the $1 million slot but got the Bankrupt!

I took Choxie for her longest walk with me ever today! It wasn’t very long, but it was better than nothing! It’s really a matter of me being able to make it, not her.

Choxie just dragged in a dead azalea bush from outside! She loves plants. She helps me pull weeds up, and she also likes to eat my houseplants and plants outside, too. Oooohhhh…she just made a big mess with broken sticks and dirt, but as long as I have a vaccum cleaner, I don’t mind. It’s much better than her eating my rug.

Brian’s here early! Gotta go!

GOOD THING: figured out something for dinner!
BAD THING: still gotta go to work the rest of the week!
