Farewell to a Short Work Week

by - Friday, November 14, 2008

This is a nice short week. And... so far I am caught up at work. And that makes me happy. To actually get done what I need to get done on a daily basis is surprisingly gratifying.

Other things making me happy lately:

- Beyonce's song "If I Were a Boy"... I am not normally a huge Beyonce fan but for some reason I keep feeling the need to belt out that song in the car.

- my new shoes. Or should I say my new shoes, my new boots and my other new boots. Who knew footwear could make one so happy?

- the fact that I have lost about 8 lbs. since I started working out. And 1.5 inches off my waist. I am attributing some of this loss to the fact I have been sick for over a week and not really all that hungry... but losing 1.5 inches is pretty cool... and having less of a muffin top is even cooler.

- the fact that I have a cool landlord... who came with a plumber yesterday to fix my toilet. I think the dripping sounds were getting to me... now when I have a relaxing bath I can focus on whatever I have playing on the stereo... not on the drip, drip, drip sounds.

- Grey's Anatomy. While the women on the show thoroughly annoy me at times... looking at the men more than makes up for it.

- my cucumber peel face mask thing... my face feels as smooth as a baby's butt after use... I love it!

Here's hoping the weekend goes as well as the week did!

  1. OMG!

    I sing that Beyonce song so loud when it comes on. And, I almost wrote a blog about it (because everyone thinks I act boyish). Then, I realized, I've heard it on the radio about three times over the past two months. So, are they not really putting it out there or is it on where you are all the time?

    P.S. While we're talking about such things...my friend Kendra and I watched Anne of Green Gables about 400 times in sixth grade. I wanted to be her like you couldn't imagine.

  2. I love when landlords actually want to fix things. I've heard so many horror stories!
