the weekend recap

April 15, 2008

I saw a smart car on Highway 74 tonight. I actually started laughing out loud. It made me really happy. It just looked so itty bitty on the big road with all the big trees and big cars. I’ve seen them a million times before, but it was always in the context of a city with small streets and crowded spaces so they never looked quite so small.

I played one of J’s new friend’s wii the other day for the first time ever. I’d never even seen one before. My shoulder still hurts. I think I may have damaged it. We were playing tennis and I was determined to win. Evidently, even if that meant breaking my shoulder.

I did my taxes today. I usually don’t wait this long, but I had gotten an expense report from work and the thought of trying to figure out how to use it was overwhelming me to procrastination. But it was worth it because I’m going to get over twice as much back by using the expense report. It makes me le happy.

I just realized that all my paragraphs so far have started with I. I don’t really care. It is my blog after all.

I started week 2 of the couch to 5k (www.c25k.com) training program. It’s nice to do something that isn’t overwhelming, but has a definite end and good result in sight.

Saturday was my first day catering for the Sun Dried. We did a pretty big wedding up in Buckhead. It was pretty good. There was a buffet so there wasn’t any serving involved. Pretty much just bused tables for 4 hours. It’s mindless, easy work and pays alright. I work again Friday night.

I’ve been realizing lately that the second bane to my existence is body hair removal. For all of us who like instant gratification, it works. You shave and it feels nice (assuming you get a good shave). But for all the trouble you go to, the goodness of it is very short lived. Stupid overproductive hair follicles. I hate how much time it takes. I hate that you have to do it so often. I hate how much razors and stuff costs. I just hate it. But I also hate body hair. And unfortunately I can’t afford permanant hair removal. I just can’t win.

I have to get up for work tomorrow morning at 4:45, and I’m at home. I’m not a fan, but I’ll be finished by 1:15 on Friday so I guess that’s good. I’m headed to Fayetteville, NC, Charleston, WV, and Wilmington, NC.

I got to see the parents and Mook twice this weekend (and eat my mama’s fabulous food twice). It was lovely. Everything she cooks tastes so good and healthy. Lots of veggies and flavor. Yesterday we had Italian chicken and pasta with Chinese veggies and we ate it with chopsticks :-D. Today was something that she said translated literally to pasta and beans, but it reminded me of minestrone soup. Such a nice change from the processed, heavy crap I eat on the road (or at my own house). Israel just arrived in the US today. He’s been gadding about Australia, China, and now Spain for the last month or so. Poor thing… He should be here about a month for work.

I also got to spend time with Amie and some new friends I’ve made through her yesterday. I suppose that’s enough for now. I do tend to blather on endlessly. I’ve gotten some really nice messages lately about my writing. They are much appreciated. Very, very much. It encourages me to write more, even when I don’t feel like it, or should be sleeping since I have to go to work :-D.
