It’s been one hell of a long day, the customers and phone calls just wouldn’t stop coming! The plus side was that the day flew by, but the negative? I’m exhausted. I was so relieved when I pulled into my driveway, and even more so to be able to sit down and relax with a hot cup of coffee. The short little thunderstorm helped with my nerves too. My plans for the rest of the night? Well, right now, just relaxing in the kitchen, watching the boyfriend cook dinner (sadly enough he cooks more than me). Then after dinner? Relaxing on the couch and watching my favorite sci-fi show… Lost Girl. To say I’m excited about curling up in bed tonight is most definitely an understatement.
So things have just been generally crazy around here. I have some great company to endure the chaos with, my friend Kate is still a constant. We managed to tackle a good portion of the housework this past weekend and knock out another portion of shopping for my little Noodle’s birthday, I’m almost done and Kate got her a ton of stuff! I still have some bigger ticket items to get, but most of the little gifts are set. On Sunday I went over to her house to visit her family (which is another one of my adopted families, they were there for me through all of the domestic crap with my ex as well as the first 2ish years of Crohns). Unfortunately I missed her parents, but there’s always next weekend! I can’t wait to see them again. Last night after work, Kate and her sister came over to visit… that was awesome and Ry took it upon himself to make us all dinner. To say that he’s got a thumbs up from those two is an understatement… and their opinions mean a lot to me.
Beyond all of that, just menial chores and work. I’ve been pondering over a pretty big decision in my head too… this fall I believe I’m going back to college… not to work on that Bachelors in Business (honestly because I’d rather eat my own ass than take one more accounting course), but to head for (starters) my Associates in Criminal Justice. End goal? Bachelors. If I get bored? Masters. Criminal Justice is something I’ve always been interested in, but of course I never wanted to become a Police Officer so I just abandoned it not realizing that I could take it so much farther. So after doing lots of research, I think I’m just going to dive in. I’m excited… more like thrilled… and even more so that I have the support of so many people. I can’t wait.
In the mean time though, it’s time to get ready for dinner. I hope everyone is doing well since I haven’t had time to check in on anyones blogs this week. Happy Almost Hump Day.
