*I met one of my blog idols- the one and only Kris from Not A Girl, Not Yet A Wino. She was everything I thought she’d be and more. Wish we lived in the same Washington instead of two different ones.
*I forced myself to go to work because I was hosting a training but only one person showed up so I canceled it. It’s really weird and uncomfortable to host a training for one person. Not just for me, but for the trainee. They are forced to pay total attention because 100% of my focus is on them. Besides, who hosts a training the Friday before Labor Day Weekend? (Um, me.)
*Dined at Monsoon (it’s delicious and you should eat there) with The Fella in celebration of our one year anniversary. We did not, despite trying to fool you with this photo on Flickr, get engaged. Sorry folks!
*Discovered a note on the infamous white board in the laundry room that declared: “The front steps are filthy and need to be cleaned!” Why thank you concerned tenant! How about addressing your “suggestion” directly to me like in an email or a note or a phone call instead of passive aggressively pointing out my failure to mop the front marble steps on a public white board? How about smokers quit putting out their cigarettes on them? How about it stops raining so my efforts to clean them won’t be in vain? Or better yet, how about YOU clean them? That sounds like a fabulous idea to me!
*Cut my hair and got my eyebrows shaped. Did not, however, pay $115 to get my hair colored. Because HOLY SHIT that is expensive. Will wait until drastic measures are required (re: my roots grow out so much that I can no longer hide them with strategic hair comb over effects.) (And some say I am not my father’s daughter. . . I prove them wrong with the comb over.)
*Baked carrot raisin muffins with cream cheese icing and washed two loads of laundry because I am domestic like that.
*My Mom moved here. If you follow me on Twitter, you know more about this saga than I am letting on here. There were hours of unloading the moving van and the next day, hours of unpacking boxes. I am very glad she is finally here even though my aching muscles will tell you different.
*Took a long, hot bath in Epsom salts because I am too old and too out of shape to be unloading a moving van.
*Drank lots of wine, ordered Indian food and watched Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day (we loved it and the soundtrack made us want to dance).
