I feel great!

I have felt this good in many days! All last week, with the crappy weather, I was tired and demoralized. I just felt like crap. Sunday night I had a migraine and was in a lot of pain. Only ended up working 3 hours Monday as a result, due to lack of sleep and residual pain. Today I still felt a little hungover (from the meds) and I wasn't sure I was going to go rowing. Another downpour threatened to be my saviour, but it cleared off just when Nayana and I had set our deadline for a decision. We went and it was FANTASTIC! We had a good crew, and while our start was a little labourious when we got a rhythm going, I felt like gold.

I just broke in my new aesthetician. Ouch. She likes her wax hot and her waxing quick. I appreciated the speed, since waiting tends to make me tense, but I really thought my skin was going to burn off. Maybe that helps dull the pain though, because I got through it without much trouble. But I miss Laura. :( We got along so well. We always laughed when I went in. I might go elsewhere for my intended pre-wedding manicure/pedicure. I need to be able to chat if I'm sitting there for 45 minutes. And perhaps elsewhere has more convenient times.

I'm doing a countdown to finish work -- even though it also means back to school, I just want to be done with the job -- and the 6:15 wake-up. I have 11 days to go. Then my vacation in T-dot begins. The wedding, the lounging, the sleeping. I'm so stoked! I think I'll start Gone With the Wind then. I'm hoping to devour a good chunk in a weekend.

That's all for now. Mom has blueberry crisp in the oven and my mouth is starting to water!

Live life to the fullest

I had a great weekend. I left my phone number for my waiter at East Side Mario's on Friday. He was cute and funny and 26. I don't think he's called yet. I don't know if he will at all. It was just something I felt like doing. But last night while I was at the movies, I did get a call that was blocked from call minder, so that could have been him. There was no message. I'm going to call one of my friends to see if it was him, because his number never comes up on my phone. If not, maybe it was the waiter....

Saturday, I went to my parents' party in MB. It poured, but I had fun. Jenni came up from Bridgewater and we caught up on the last couple of months. That was great.

Sunday I went boozing with AU friends. There were tons of us, and we had such a good time. I drank to the point of puking. That wasn't so much fun. But the dancing was great! I can't remember how much I drank, but it was too much. I'm going to take a break for a while.

Last night I went to the movies with Rick and Jillian and had a good time. Haven't hung out with Jillian in almost 18 months. Of course, she asked if we could go downtown soon. That's what she always wants to do. I'm not completely opposed to it, but she decided to ask when I was nursing a hangover, so it made the idea rather unappealing. I'll see. I don't have time for a couple of weeks anyway.

I've been rowing and socializing a lot lately. More the latter. I'm having a great summer. Things aren't always going as planned, but I'm greatly amused, most of the time. And when I not being amused, I enjoy the quiet.

Things have started picking up at work (as of today -- let's not dub it a "trend' just yet) and it makes it harder to finish books, but easier to pass the time. I barely noticed the extra hour I had to work. I'm starting to get annoyed with my lunch replacement. She asked me early last month if she could come in at 12:30 instead of noon, and she's barely made it before 1 since then. I find that a little irriatating, especially when I'm supposed to have lunch plans with friends from out of town. If it continues like that this week, I'm going to ask if she can try to be more consistent. At any rate, I'm getting tons of leisure reading done and it's GREAT! I didn't know I missed reading so much!

Well, there y'all go. A blog, finally. I know it's a little condensed, but I thought it was finally time. No guarantees on the next update, but I'll try to be more consistent.
