And so, since no one rocks out on Monday, but hopefully you get your cock out if you've got one, here's the slightly delayed version.
Last week was wonderfully calm and quiet. Basically, it consisted of getting my classes all straightened out so that I can graduate with my AA in December rather than February. Baby steps people. I refuse to be a slave to Corporate America for any longer than is absolutely necessary.
We came to the realization that it's gonna be four more years in Miami, unfortunately (barring lottery wins or other huge piles of money falling on us). Kiddo has an interview for her magnet school coming up and if she gets in, there's no way I would pull her out before she graduates. She's been talking about this school since she heard about it and practicing her sketching and such, so I hope that the interview goes well.
A little extra cash in the paycheck this week is an awesome thing. Too bad it didn't cover the things that broke such as my telephone, the monitor on my laptop, and my eyes. But, extra cash is extra cash and for that I am thankful. And yes, I wasted it on a fill for my fake-ass nails (can't have raggedy hands sporting the rock) and a spa pedicure (because if you get your hands done, might as well get the tootsies done too). Fortunately, a little other will come in soon on top of the income tax check so I'll be able to pay off ALL the credit cards, hooray! And I'm taking Lovey to dinner over the weekend for Valentine's Day. He picks the place and drives, I pay. I wish I could just get him flowers and candy. 😛
Saturday we attended a little shindig for the birthday of Lovey's best friend's wife. We were in charge of getting everyone into their place while they went out to dinner so we could surprise her. Good times. I know now why I try to avoid the camera. It's because in just about every picture I take, I look hammered whether I am or not. (and if I am, I look like I got keelhauled, face first) Take for instance, Exhibit A. By this time, I had had maybe two drinks.
I'm not sure why this happens. Even when I'm not drinking this happens, evidenced by the group photo at Christmas. And my glasses make me look old. I'm okay with that one though. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?!?! Ugh, the more I look at that picture the more I dislike it.
Anywho, we had to jet out of the party a little early because I was STARVING! We got home at close to 2, I believe, at which time I inhaled a half of a cheesesteak. It was delicious. The next morning I woke up and I smelled like cheesesteak. Kinda gross.
Today is a day of new journeys. It's our first day of school and the first class sucks, lol. Some sort of business garbage that neither I or he have any interest in, but it's only 5 weeks so we suck it up. It's also day one of a personal journey. It's personal.
Sending out good vibes for a great remainder of your Monday. Peace, love and hairgrease!
