Monday, Monday

Why is it that Mondays are usually so crummy? There wasn't anything specifically bad about today, but it was so Monday. Crappy traffic going to work, long hard day at work, and now the idea of food is turning my stomach. WHAT? Me turned off by food? I know, right! Of course maybe watching Dr. G has something to do with it. Nah, never has before! =) I logged on because I had something interesting to share, but I can't remember it now to save my life. Oh well. I hope your mind isn't as whiffley as mine today.

and so begins another week

Looks like the Saints and Colts are gonna be battling it out in a couple weeks. I can't believe the Colts were able to make such a come back and the Vikes just couldn't save their own skins for all the turnovers. Oh well, such is life. It's not like the Stars could ever make the Superbowl or anything. =)

The boy and I had a very nice weekend considering my body and hormones really wanted me to stay in bed the whole time. He got down here last night and took me to dinner before I dragged him off to a party with a bunch of people he didn't know. Technically, I only knew the hostess, but it didn't matter at all. Everyone was delightful! Today I did the singing thing, came home, and took a loooooong nap while I had the Flyers/Penguins game on the TV (I don't even know who won since I slept thru it all). Got up and made some tacky mac and cheese lunch for us and went off to a work meeting. Yep, pretty boring, but nice nonetheless.

Let's see what the week has in store!

happy humpday

For my first trick I will put two contacts into one eye! Ya, I did that this morning. While I was at St. Arbucks getting some iced coffee goodness, my right eye decided it had had enough of the contact in it. I came back home and switched into a new one. Ahh, it felt so glorious I thought I should switch out the left one as well. Sadly, I forgot to take out the contact that was already in there. Oops. Needless to say, I learned that you can put two contacts in one eye and then take them out one at a time. Tada!

I think this is all because I did 80 minutes of yoga this morning starting at 6am. Makes for a sleepy and dumb naughty mouse.

dreams I dream

1st off, lemme say that if there are a ton of typos, I'm typing without the use of my right index finger. Stupid cheese grater.

I was telling some friends about some of the weird dreams I've been having lately. They said I should write them down, so here I go!

Dream 1: My mother and I were on some sort of a trip at a bed and breakfast somewhere beautiful. While we were sight seeing, I kept seeing zombies. For some unknown reason I knew that the way to keep the zombies at bay was to keep diced sweet potatoes in our pockets. The zombies could hear the sweet potatoes singing, and that would scare them away from us. Yes, the sweet potatoes had to be diced: something about the size of the chunks affected the pitch of the singing. I ate cheese before I went to bed that night.

Dream 2: I was someplace like the State Fair. I decided to enter this contest where I was subjected to "added weight." I got hooked up to something akin to a bungee cord. First they added weights on top of my head (mind you, I was hanging in the air). When I could withstand the weights and then was touching the ground, they started spinning me in circles kinda like to induce G forces. When I could handle all of that, they added a large man on my back. He talked to me the whole time that they sped up the spinning. He was very complimentary telling me that I was doing such a good job. Then when I asked how I was doing, if I was winning/going to beat the record, he started berating me. Finally he started hitting me over the head and telling me I was a bad person unless I confessed my sins and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior. I finally caved and quit the competition instead of confessing. That night, I had Snuffers cheese fries.

Now you understand why I wake up tired a lot. =)

happy new year!

So I'm a little late. Sue me.

I have had a totally marvelous day. I didn't have to go to work at all so I took advantage of a few hours of freedom. I started off sleeping late-ish and then doing one hour of power yoga at the gym. I'm already starting to feel that. Hope I can function physically tomorrow. Then I cleaned myself up properly and met Mother for some darned good barbeque lunch. After securing the leftovers in my car, I hit two different sporting goods stores looking for the knee wrap thing my ortho wants me to get. Neither place had it, but the second ordered it for me. I should receive it sometime next week. Wish I could've had it immediately after the power yoga! When I got home from my exhausting morning (feel free to insert laughter here), I decided to take a nap. It was glorious! After the restfulness, I got up and scrubbed carpet freshener into the living room carpet. It may not be cleaner, but it smells niiiiice. Then I vacuumed and rearranged the furniture. (btw--the old big green sleeper sofa was out at the curb for bulky trash Monday morning.) I'm not happy with the arrangement, but I'll see what happens after a few days. Now, after watching the Stars lose yet again, I'm baking an apple cobbler. I've never done this before, but I bought a ton of apples and didn't eat them. Typical. I'll let you know how it turns out.

All in all, a pretty good day. I have to be at the lab tomorrow at 7:30am (ugh) and the Galleria at 6pm (double ugh). On top of that, I've agreed to meet an old friend for drinks after the 2nd job. It's gonna be a loooooong day. Oh well. Maybe I can just meet him for coffee at Cafe Brazil. I'm gonna need it!
