Boring Friday morning…..

I’m blogging because I’m bored, so be forewarned. I’m a little over a quarter into my shift, and it’s going slowly this morning. Also, I’m afraid that I’ll fall asleep if I start reading (did not quite go to bed on time last night – busy watching the Vicar of Dubley…).

That meeting yesterday, by the way, ended up being more of a meet-and-greet, which was perfect because we only had to stay for 30 minutes. I got a free margarita and was able to talk to some United Way representatives and learn a little more about the organization. I hope to be able to put in some volunteer time with them in the future – though they don’t have constant opportunities.

After that, I hung out with Ryan some at Bill and Helen’s, and after dozing off on the couch decided to go home to my comfortable bed. 🙂 It was a decent day, I suppose. I felt pretty, and that’s always very nice. Today I’m feeling more sloppy as I didn’t get up in time to take a shower (because I’m a lazy bum), but I’m going to take care of that when I go home for lunch.

So I got a new cake stand yesterday. Did I mention it already? Here’s a picture.

I’m DYING to baking something that I can put on the cake stand. I don’t even necessarily want to eat whatever I bake – I just want to display it with a glass dome. 🙂 Maybe I’ll do that later when I get off. It’s more likely that I’ll do it tomorrow though.

BTW, it’s afternoon now. Once I started complaining about what a slow morning I was having, things picked up. I got back from my lunch break about 15 minutes ago though. I think I’m going to dedicate myself to cleaning up once I get off work; this will include doing all the dirty laundry (including Ryan’s, and including towels), cleaning out the litter boxes, cleaning the kitchen up and maybe trying to re-arrange and declutter, and cleaning up the library which already looks vastly better because I picked up all the clothes that were on the floor. Having a clean house makes me feel so much better about myself and life in general, I gotta say.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do this weekend. I think I’m hanging out with some friends tomorrow, and I’m doing something with Cathy on Sunday, but other than that I’m not sure. I keep saying that I want to get a hair cut and a pedicure, and I keep doing neither of those things. Or I might bake. Or plan some realistic meals and make a grocery list. Or lie in bed all day because I have an awesome bed and am loathe to leave it whenever I must. I can’t bake while I’m in bed though, so I’ll have to make some compromises.

Geez, sorry I’m being so rambly. I guess no one is forcing anyone to read this though.

I catch myself wishing that my life was more like a movie, which is a terrible wish but pops up in my conscious mind every now and then. Movies just make things more romantic and idealized and compelling. But I don’t really feel like going into this right now. So nevermind.
