Yeah, I haven't written in a couple days. Partly because I've been busy, and partly because I actually have work to do as a forecaster. So my blogging time (which is at work, how bad is that?) has been greatly diminished.
So what's new this week? Well, I got my fat ass off the couch and went to a Tuesday Night Race on...you guessed it, Tuesday night. It was hard! And I accidently cheated because I followed the guy in front of me instead of the little pink ribbon. So I cut a couple minutes off the race. Which meant I was like number 350 instead of 365 (no joke). I'm not too worried about that one. Anyway, it felt good to run. I have such a hard time working out on mid shifts though, especially when I have stuff to do like Japanese class. But I need to get back on the band wagon, because I'm going to be a fatty.
Then Wednesday I played Dungeons and Dragons with E and his brother. I'm not going to post about that right now because I don't feel like getting into it. I have this like-hate relationship with D&D. Notice I said like, not love, because unlike E, I still don't love it. But I tolerate it from time to time.
Yesterday was Japanese class. I got back a quiz and found out that I had blown it. It shouldn't matter because I'm not getting a degree or anything, but the perfectionist in me got all pissy. So that means more studying, I guess.
What else is new? I got my bridesmaid's dress for my friend's wedding. It was a little big on top. As in, my boobs are just way too small. I think the straps will have to be shortened, but I think I'm also going to have to pad it. The front comes way down, so I think I'll need some of those stick on deals. This should be interesting. I'm getting excited though. I'm excited to go home, because I haven't really been home in two years, I'm excited to wear a pretty dress, and I'm excited to be in my friend's wedding. Hurrah!
Today I got an e-mail from my friend V. He and his wife just celebrated their first anniversary by going skydiving. How cool is that? I checked out his website and he had pics of that and pics of his new house, which is basically my dream house. ***Okay, I was going to link to the MLS listing. But he has it on a "friends only" site, so I don't want to violate his privacy by posting it here. Here's a description though: it's a white house, two stories with garage and front porch. It has azaleas outside and a beautiful yard withplenty of trees. It has a large kitchen with a windowed breakfast nook and a living room with a fireplace. That's all he showed. I don't know what the bedrooms are like, but there are 4. It's gorgeous. 1900 square feet.***
I love getting e-mails from V, but they always make me a little happy and a little sad at the same time. He has a great life, and every time I hear from him it's good news. But, I can't help but feeling a little jealous at times (see dream house note). I guess part of it is that he and I tried to have a relationship a couple of different times, and it totally didn't work out. Although I know that we will never get together (and I don't want to), I still have a little soft spot in my heart for him. He is a special friend.
And damn, I want my dream house! Sniff. That's okay though. If I got everything I wanted, I wouldn't have anything left to daydream about.
One last note, before I get back to "working", a.k.a. surfing the net, I just want throw out some props to my girl Henna. I just love her writing style. Her style is always what I strive for, but instead, mine turns out to be sappy drivel whenever I try to write something introspective. So way to go, Henna, you rock!
