What I've Done Since Friday: A List, by Maigrey

This weekend was been consumed by:

  • I went shopping at Michael's for crafty stuff (to make the bath salt envelopes)

    • And I got chinese food, too.

    • It's grrrrrrrrrrrowlBethany's fault; she's an enabler, and don't let her tell you different.

  • making a gorgeous american dream torte

    • this was originally for the picnic after church, but that got cancelled so I made it for the Saturday BBQ

    • I got to use a pastry brush for the first time and it was very zen to paint poundcake with raspberry mixture

    • I meant to take pictures, but I forgot; it turned out fantastically gorgeous!
  • gaming BBQ!

    • As usual, very few people showed up (sigh), but it was much fun and people left about midnight

    • everyone oohed over my torte

    • And, to make things exciting, I dropped my cell phone in the toilet

      • Luckily, motorola phones still work after they get dried out...

  • And on top of getting to bed late, I stayed up even longer reading The Golden Compass on aera's recommendation.

  • Church (reluctantly due to tiredness from the night before, and I was late)

  • After church, I hit Ulta and spent too much money.

  • Then, I required caffiene, and went to Caribou

    • where, it seems, is the unofficial coffee hour spot for the younger church crowd

    • they invited me to sit and chat with them, so I did, for an hour and a half

  • ...which made me a bit late for my weekly date with my mom to declutter her house

    • She's becoming a real Flylady convert, now that I've "motivated" (read: nagged) her to get started
    • Life is all about inertia, baby.

  • Of course, since I was already running late, I was then running late for my date with zen_raven to go suit shopping.

    • Gawd, I hate suit shopping.

    • But, I found a cute pantset, and a nice suit, and spent way too much money.

    • But, I am wearing an awesomely cute skirt today!

  • I did not work from home like I usually do, as bosses were in town, and I needed to speak to some of 'em

    • I am not doing that again. I need to ease into the work week.

    • In fact, I got so frustrated that I, despite all the money I spent over the weekend, self-prescribed myself some retail therapy

    • I mean, I did need something to wear under my suit, right?

  • And when I got home, my cat was rattling around on the top floor awfully loudly.

    • Of course, when I got upstairs, I found out it was not the cat, but Wrigley!

    • I doubt he escaped from his crate; I must have forgotten to lock it, as he has a tendancy to go up to his crate by himself about a half hour before I leave for work.

    • The good news is that he was a good boy, and didn't make any messes, though he was definitely waiting at the door to go out...

  • Got more frustrated at work

  • Finally gave in and told my boss I was getting bored out of my MIND

    • He said that he had a ton of things I could take off his plate, he was just holding off because of the pending interview, so I would be able to travel.

  • Then, I bought a screen door that wouldn't fit into my car, and the employee of the month was kind and tied it to my roof

    • Now, I merely need to figure out how to install the sucker, as it's hot in the house without my ceiling-fan-enabled cross breeze.


  • Tired.

    Being in the office at 8:30 am means getting up at 5 because I hate traffic and traffic starts at 6:30. Wah. But I did get more Caribou. YOMS.

  • Making orthodontia better

    + ...I have about 4 hours before I can't eat anything that isn't soft...

  • For Lori.

    I hate you pollen. HATE YOU.
