Last night Darren had batting practice and then had to get his hair cut for drill this weekend so he left home right after dinner and didn't come home until 9:45. I'm pretty sure I talked to him when he came home, but I was in Tylenol PM induced coma and I don't remember much from 9:15 last night until 6 this morning. It was nice getting up so early. I worked out, vaccumed and dusted the living room, dusted the china cabinet in the kitchen and the table in the entry area, and vaccumed the rug by the front door. And I was earlier to work than usual. I can't say early to work, because I'm never early...more like today I was less late than I normally am. But considering it's so slow here that I'm getting paid to type this blog right now, I can't honestly say that anyone really cares. I did read online yesterday that hitting the snooze button is really bad for you. Apparently really super short bursts of sleep actually makes you more tired. I guess I can see that. I never used to hit the snooze button until I got married, which also makes sense since I read today that single people get more sleep than married people. Anyway, getting all that cleaning done this morning was great. All I have left for the week is to sweep the entry area and kitchen and wipe down the kitchen counters. Although all the grooves in the tile turn a minor sweeping job into a 10 minute project. Note to self: never have tile floors. They look nice, but definitely not worth it. I am learning quite a few things I don't want in my house from living out at Blair's.
I sold a bunch of books to this company in Grand Rapids (for $68, yay!) and I had to ship them today. Forty-seven pound box + two-inch glorified flip-flops = disaster waiting to happen. Fortunately it didn't. I already had my daily dose of bad luck this morning when my hair dryer crapped out on me. Just round-brushing away and pouf! there she goes. I swear I saw a little piece fly out of it but I couldn't find it anywhere. I was just thinking about a week ago how long that hair dryer had lasted. I'm pretty sure I got it in high school, so it was a good one. I'll have to buy another one in Brainerd tomorrow.
Speaking of Brainerd tomorrow...I have to go to the gynecologist. Bleh. I was going to ask my friend (Tina) who just had a baby who she sees because she really loves her gynecologist, plus the gynecologist I normally see is all the way down in the cities. I was supposed to call Tina on Sunday and ask her but I forgot and then she had the baby on Sunday night. I did talk to her Monday when she called to tell me but I didn't feel like saying, "Congratulations! Who's your gynecologist?" I haven't been able to get a hold of her since then so I said screw it, I'm just going to call the stinking medical center and they can give me whoever they want. And you know what? It was a piece of cake and I got in at 9:45 tomorrow so I really wish I would have done it sooner. Oh well, live and learn.
Anyway, I'm going to do a little shopping while I'm down there, I think. There's a couple things we need--a Brita water pitcher being top of the list; I can't stand much more poison water--plus some groceries. I also have birthday money (yay!) and I think I'm going to get a pair of capris. I wanted a green purse but I looked online at Target and they were all ugly. So I'm not sure what else I'll spend it on. Darren's parents gave me a gift card for Christmas Point and I'm really excited about that. Love that store. Oh, I was going to order some Pampered Chef stuff but I'm supposed to have 10% off for a year since I did a wedding registry with them and I can't figure out how to make it work online. I emailed my consultant like a week and a half ago and she still hasn't emailed me back. What is with people not responding to my messages lately? I'll probably have to call her...maybe I'll do that when I'm done with this. Hmm...which will probably be right about now.
