also good ppl, nadine-adele, who was my giftee. i know i already wrote about the trouble i had sending her gift, BUT am happy to report that after all that, it arrived to her in the UK after only a week of travel! hooray! and she enjoyed her gifties. : ) that always makes me feel good!
erin was my gifter of swap swag. she did GREAT! not in small part due to the fact that she & i must have the same taste in gifts! : )
my favorite tubey cookies, twinings tea, cocoa & mint cocoa mmmm!, sparkly nail polish & a cuuuuute bookmark that she made! love love!
THANK YOU, erin! i've already painted my pinky w/ the lovely black diamond nail polish. i may do the rest of the nails, even! it was a very nice surprise for me at my door! : )
now it's time for bed, i think. maybe a chapter or two first... : ) the rest of my day in brief - work was pretty good, hectic, tho! and a couple things irritated me, but whadda ya do? smile & try not to stress out. LOL there was a scrumptious potato & leek soup from the cafe for lunch, and a baked potato for dinner. mmmm, so good! (apparently i was in the mood for potatoes today...) i finished Holding the Baby & started a betty neels from back in the day - it was published the year i was born! it's called The Edge of Winter. wanna know the cover price? SEVENTY-FIVE CENTS! ikr, amazing! you could buy a book or a gallon of gas for that...interesting - now they will both cost you btwn $3-5 for the same kind of book/gas!
anywhoo! i have labs in the morning at 9, so i started the required 12 hour fast at 9 tonight. i tried to stave off any hunger pains by eating a bowl of oatmeal w/ PB right at like 8:45, but alas, my tummy is hungry! normally i would have had my PB w/ cheese right before bed, to fill my tummy while i slept. i know some schools of thought say you shouldn't eat right before bed, but i've always had to have something in my stomach or i feel sick. which is why i HATE fasting labs. :( i know i'm not going to starve or anything dire like that, but just the way my metabolism is, it's highly uncomfortable for me! (listen to me whine - i'm very grateful it's only 12 hours & not days ppl have to go w/o food, i know how blessed i am!)
so, i watched The Death of The Incredible Hulk (why didn't i remember he actually DIES? yeesh!) & Transformers, and now sleep really sounds divine! hope your day was sparkly goodness! : )
