anywhoo...! work was nice today, altho i didn't get even 1/2 of what i wanted to done. but there's tomorrow, and it will all still be there waiting for me! lol it was an awesome time in the pod, tho. my wall-mates played christmas music all day. sweeeeeet!!
my evening was quite unexpected, totally not what i had planned! well, first of all, it wasn't supposed to snow until later today, and so when it started at 8 this morning & didn't show any signs of stopping by noon. so i texted my former helper bee that we might need to reschedule. then the snow & everything stopped at like 3, but of course by then she'd already made other plans w/ her bf. can't blame her for that!! *laugh*
it worked out, tho, because of course God knows what He's doing! trish's daughter (and my friend) megan needed a ride home, and she works at HQ. so i picked her up after work - after i scraped the accumulated snow off chloe, of course. i called in for thai taker out. the plan had been to stop at adolph's before picking meg up, because my wall-mates were talking about tacos & that sounded realllllly good (still does)! unfortunately, i missed the turn. d'oh! so, i got pumpkin curry and a diet pepsi and a mt dew for meg & then took her home.
when i got home, i texted w/ joyums a bit, and then jen texted to see if i was in or out. i said in (i was reading The Dead & The Gone), but then bret wanted to go to WM, so i told her we could pick up food for her on the way home. we had fun at WM! got some groceries, and i forgot to pick up my Rx. whoops! spent $30 less than we thought we did, woot! : ) we picked up some wendy's & then dropped that off at jen's. leyton answered the door & i got a kiss from him, so if i needed payment (which i don't) i'd take that! : )
before we put the groceries away, bret helped me clean out the freezer & fridge. i reallllly should have done that years ago. there was stuff in there that expired in 2009? that's bad! why wouldn't i have thrown that away before?? i have pruned my fridge often, but there were just some things that for whatever reason i did not want to throw out. it ALLLL went tonight, tho, and i feel good about it! PTL!
: ) now it's time for bed, but before i go i'll share with you today's postcards. lovely!!
i just think the inukshuk is awesome. like stonehenge, and the pyramids. ancient peoples built things that last forever-ish, out of all natural materials, and for great purposes. not to take away from the talented architects of today, but really - ROCKS, ppl. rocks. (and also, rocks, as in "it rocks"!)
from japan. so cute! and they even drew me a little turtle!! love the extra efford! also, pretty tape. : )
from france. i wanna go to a Christmas market!! : )
i hope your monday was terrific, and that tomorrow turns out to be even better!! : ) TTFN!
