today was a bit of an odd day.
i cut my hair yesterday. it might not be quite even, but the curl is back. yay!
so, today i was super happy in the morning, happy to be feeling better, happy chloe started right away, happy to be such a regular at one of the starbucks that i'm called "my dear" and the barista knows i'm most likely getting a venti iced coffee. *grin* then, to make me even more manic, i saw mr c in the hallway & got to say good morning. agh, i enjoy him but he frustrates the crap out of me, too!
i spent the morning quite mired in timecard issues, and by the time my book break came around, i had the beginnings of a nagging headache. (it's still there, nagging at me, having survived food & water & caffeine & several pain pills. ugh.) i'd hoped to work on memorials today, but had an impromptu meeting & several phone calls & i at least managed to get the spreadsheet mostly done, so hooray for that! i also wanted to get through vacations, which had piled up quite nicely while i was gone yesterday, but only got about 1/4 of the way through those, as well. so i know i'll be busy tomorrow! *laugh*
despite the crazy & the headache, it really was a good day. : ) i got to chat w/ april a bit, and i received a super sweet, VERY unexpected surprise in my email - some friends of mine sent me a gift card to amazon! *supersquee* :D combining two of my favorite things - presents and books. books as presents! *twirly happy dance* so... i may have a cart full of books already, just waiting for me to push the "checkout" button... LOL
had wanted fazoli's for dinner (oh, craving garlicky breadsticks, yes i am!) but they had a note on their speaker saying they were closed due to the extreme weather. but there were cars in the parking lot & it had looked like there were ppl inside & IT WAS NOT THAT COLD TODAY! buggar. so i went to arthur's instead, which you know i always love arthur's! still, am thinking that i'll try to stop by fazoli's tomorrow since i still want my flippin breadsticks! heh.
what else? i'll be sending out some postcrossings tomorrow to russia & germany.
Jet came in the mail. : ) that'll be my next read.
green tea frappucion. yum!
and, back to my book! : )
