Look, I'm trying!!
So I made it through another weekend! A very crazy weekend.
Nick's parents were back in town Friday night. I had a hugely productive day at 40+, sort out lots of things, got things together for Monday, worked on the social, committee work, AND I discovered the phone directory (public info, people, nothing illegal!) for the Department of State! There's a coding system, but between my brain and google, I figured out who works at the Blair House. Now I just have to call them!!!!! How cool?? How SCARY!!!
Then I had lunch with my protocol buddy, who oddly enough, wants my help! I'll get to make a little money doing relatively easy stuff, while helping a protocol buddy with her business. Meeting again Wednesday to work out details. Not a regular, steady, job but still cool! Maybe once I get steady work, it'll help pay my student debts faster.....or help me with my label addiction, lol!
Then it was home to breathe until the in-laws got in- late. Normally not a big deal, but Nick and I had a party to go to afterwards. Nick was tired from work too. Bit all worked out, and I got to sip champagne on the rooftop of a rather tall building downtown.
City Hop Saturday with Mom, walking through uber luxe condos downtown. If anyone knows what I mean when I talk about '8 on the Square' hahahah, I walked through one that cost 820K plus ~800 in monthly fees. Fantastic view, and pretty good layout. Plus they all are wired to a touch screen panel to control lighting and music throughout. The evening was traumatic as we spent the remainder of the day with Nick's parents. They're really sweet people, but they're just not normal!! The lack of logic and inability to carry off a normal conversation is staggering. But Nick got his grill for his (early) birthday present, and he's used it two nights in a row already. Btw, if you ever want to flatter me, compliment my home/house keeping/interior design. Lost on his parents. Our yard is fantastic, and we have a VERY different dining room table, nothing. Not a single word. I won't even write about their new dog. They're doing a wonderful thing rescuing her, and I'll stop there X_X
Today Nick was off. Like, REALLY off. No phone calls, no going in, it was just the two of us! We babysat my mom's puppy while she was in a class all day, so we woke up with her in bed with us. Lounged around a bit, but then cleaned, did laundry, dishes, went to the gym, worked in the yard (while playing with Gracie puppy), went to the store, then made and awesome dinner for all of us. And here I am. Food was good today, but I ate too much fat. Calories was good, ate lots of veggies and protein, could have used more water. Though my body would feel more fatigued but then again, it's not morning yet ^_^
Hope everyone has a great week!!!
