Ok I guess busy was an understatement. After my early morning gum session/desperate housewives/breakfast this morning, I showered, then was on hold for 30 minutes on two different phone calls. One to pay some insurance crap, and the other to schedule a few medical appointments for my immigration paperwork. Talk about a gross waste of time.
I did, however, make use of this wait time by straightening my hair and doing my makeup. So I guess it wasn’t a total waste.
First stop after that speed bump was the library! Look who got herself a library card!
I even checked out a real live book
They offer eBooks, and I already have a few on hold. Not gonna lie, I’m excited. Free>not free.
Next stop: photographer. I needed some quality shots for my PR application. Did they turn out? Let’s just say they meet the qualifications.
Then, Hallmark. Got a few cards and become a rewards member. Free cards and cash back never hurt anyone.
By then, I had worked up an appetite (AM workouts really rev the metabolism!) and I threw together a real good bowl of deliciousness.
I mixed some of the leftover stir fry with some scrambled eggs and topped with black beans and salsa. Tummy= satisfied.
I took Layla in my next round of tasks. Only because she was involved in one of them: nail clipping. I took her to The Paw Spa. She was in and out in less than 5 minutes and they did a great job. Layla was a little freaked, but when is she not.
Then, we went around the corner to mail some of the cards purchased earlier in the day, and around another corner to the used sports store for these babies:
Phew, I’m just tired typing about my day! When we got home, I took care of some laundry, then cozied up to the first 100 pages of my book.
I wasn’t planning on reading that much, but a line from the first page got me hooked:
You’d keep reading too, if you saw that line.
Dinner was a bowl of oats with walnuts, chopped medjool dates, a heap of pumpkin ad pumpkin pie spice.
It hit the spot.
I made Tyler a hodge podge dinner (hodge podge= delicious but ridiculously easy to make), and he spent some time in his office. I don’t know what he was doing, but I heard techno/electronic music coming from that direction. I didn’t bother asking.
We just finished Underworld and are rounding out the evening with an episode of Top Gear
I’m about to run into a dilemma and I am not sure how to approach the situation. Backstory: I have been reading my eBooks on night mode in bed so that Tyler can sleep while I read at all hours of the night. Now, I have a real book. Flashlight under the covers, or put the bedside lamp on the floor and lay halfway over the bed so it won’t disturb the man? And no, I’m not going in another room.
