Looooooooong Day

Man, today is draaaaaaaaaaaagging by slower than molasses in January. Probably because I didn't get to work until 8:30. Why is it that when you get to work early it makes the day go by faster? At least that is my exerpience.

I'm working 9.5 hours today and man is it long.

I can't wait to get out of here because I am going to run my old trail that I used to run and I am excited for a change of pace. And, I just don't want to be in this stupid freaking building anymore. Cripes.

Oh man my blog is so BORING this week!!

Some Pics

Bored bored bored bored bored. I am so bored and unmotivated to do anything. Yuck. I just want it to be Friday already so Joe and I can go out of town and have fun, and not worry about work at all for four whole days. I have tons of stuff to do but no motivation. As usual.
MaryBeth sent me some pics, posted below, from last weekend. Yay! :o)
Brunch at Georgia Brown'sJessie's birthday at 11th St. Lounge

I did a Billy Blanks' Boot Camp DVD today and it was not all that great. I mean, it was okay, but I didn't get what I wanted, which was a really hard cardio workout. So I dug out an old Tae Bo DVD and that is what I am going to do next time. Basically I just cannot run every day because my shins do not allow it. I probably shouldn't even run tomorrow because they hurt but I'm going to anyway. Which probably explains why they never heal all the way. I'm smart.

A Full Weekend

Well. This past weekend was just as crazy as I thought it would be. Whew. I am tired, and as usual on Monday mornings, I did not want to get up today.

Friday night Joe and I went to the Nationals game and it was sooooooooooo fun! We had the best time ever. Unfortunately, the Nationals lost. But it was still fun. Saturday we went to the Taste of the South. It was fun but I stupidly wore shoes that hurt my feet and a dress that made me totally self conscious. What was I thinking? Grr. Sunday morning was brunch, I got lost of course since it was down in DC. But the food was soooooo good! We went to this place called Georgia Brown's and they have southern-stlye food and cooking. Needless to say I ate and drank enough calories this past weekend for 10 people. I have lotsa pics, I'll post them later on tonight when I am at home. :o)

I am so excited for the long weekend this weekend and for Justin and Alan's wedding. It is going to be so fun. They have the best idea ever, they arranged for a shuttle to run from the hotel to the ceremony and reception so nobody has to worry about driving. I thought that was a great idea so Joe and I can both drink like the fishes if we want to! Yay! :o) And I have learned from this past weekend that I am going to wear a dress that is comfortable, that I am comfortable in, and shoes that are freakin' comfortable too!

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Wahoo! It's Friday. I have been so busy at work this week I feel like I haven't had time to do anything! I am actually starting to get really excited about this project at work. I think the initial fear might be starting to wear off. Sweetness. I just really hope I don't screw it up. Pray for me.

Tonight, Joe and I are going to go to a Nationals game; they are playing the Orioles. It is going to be so fun. For as much as I dislike watching sports on TV, I looooooooooooove going to games and watching them in person. Pretty much any sport, too. Yay! We're going to go early and tailgate and stuff too. I just really, really hope it doesn't rain because it is pretty overcast and cloudy right now. I might have to stop and buy some emergency ponchos from CVS on the way home just to be safe. The first Nationals game I went to I got POURED on and seriously looked like I had a huge bucket of water dumped over me. It was ridiculous.

Tomorrow night we are going to this black-tie party called Taste of the South that our friends Ana and Zach invited us to. I am really, extremely excited about that too. Because, like any girl, I love getting dressed up and stuff and going out. :o) It should be a blast. I am going to wear this sparkly black cocktail dress that I have... I love it and I am so excited! :o) I'll definitely post some pictures. I hope there is dancing and stuff, too!

Then, Sunday I am going to brunch at this super swanky restaurant in DC with a group of my girlfriends. Whoa I am not going to have time to do anything this weekend!

Minor Heart Attack

Okay, I'm being put in charge of what feels like a huge project at work and I am pretty much suffering from a minor heart attack every day at work for the past week. I am scared. And no matter how many times the woman helping me tells me that it isn't a big deal, and it is "just like planning a party," I still want to have kittens about every single time I think about it.

Help.

I can't wait to sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep

I am so excited for the weekend simply because I can stay in my bed alllllll dayyyyyyy loooooong tomorrow if I want to. I am so exhausted. Last night Jessi came over for dinner and we had some Cosmos. It was fun. :o) But then I couldn't fall asleep and then my phone battery started to die at like 3:30 in the morning and woke me up. It was so annoying. So I had to turn it off and set my other alarm, either that or try to find my charger and plug in my stupid phone. I chose option 1.

I am so happy because the pool at my apartments is finally filled up and they have the chairs out and everything. I hope it opens before Memorial Day weekend like normal. I can't wait! :o) That means I'm going to have to start getting to work super early so I can go to the pool!

Well, I don't really have anything else to talk about. Have a fun weekend!! :o)

I may have my own opinion of police officers in Pasco County, but...

Oh man I almost died laughing this morning on the way to work when I heard this story. An armless, one legged guy eluded police in Pasco County and finally did get away! How do police lose a chase to a guy with no arms and one leg?!!?

Ha hahahahahahaha.....Chrissy, we'll talk about this later.

You had me at hello, tear.

Check out this article. It'll make you think. Sorry, I don't mean to make you think.

Soooo. Last night my exam was the most ridiculous thing ever. I could have not studied at all and probably gotten the same grade. There were two questions, one I somewhat knew, and the other was a scenario and it was the biggest load of b.s. ever. I was so annoyed. I finally just turned in the paper because I just couldn't think of any more b.s. to write down on. Grr.

I can't believe it is already Wednesday. This week is flying by like crazy. I have to take Zach to the vet tonight, which is never, ever fun because he hates the car and freaks out every time I put him in it. Luckily, the vet is right across the street so we don't have to go far.

I've been boring lately, not much to talk about. Things are looking up slightly at work, so that's good. Now that I said that it'll probably nose dive. Ha ha.

I'm getting really excited because this week I am having some friends over for dinner and it is going to be tons of fun. :0) We are making kabobs! Yum!

Anyway, check out this book, Porn for Women. Sweetness.

Low Key Weekend

Whew. I was glad to have a low key weekend but I still feel like I didn't really get to relax all that much, cuz I had a lot to do from being gone. First, my apartment was a total disaster and I had laundry up to the sky, which is my most favorite thing to do ever. I had zero food in my apartment, so add grocery shopping to the list, and the list goes on with the chores.

Friday, Joe and I went out with another couple to Tallulah in Arlington. It is the cutest little restaurant/bar ever. Their food is so good. It is gourmet though so you get like a postage stamp sized serving. I knew the minute we got served that Joe would still be hungry when his was gone. Ha ha. But it was really good. Then we went to see Spiderman 3...it was good but it was so loooooooooong! I was so glad when it was over. Saturday we went to dinner at Don Pablo's with Joe's parents to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Then we went to Joe's house and watched the movie Crash. It was okay. I thought it was a little exaggerated though. It was all about racism basically. Kinda a downer.

Yesterday I carried $230 worth of groceries up 4 flights of stairs in only 2 trips. Can you believe it? I know, I am a gladiator. Ha ha. I had a Mary Kay party in the afternoon. One of my girls from work just started selling it so I decided to have a party. I got some cool stuff.

Once again, I did not want to get out of bed this morning for work. Grr. I have an exam on Tuesday so I am going to be studying all night long. Sounds like fun, huh? I thought so.
Kill me.

I made it through the week

I didn't think it would happen, but I made it through the week without dying. Whew. I am soooooo happy it is the weekend. :o)

Yesterday afternoon I ran on the treadmill and it struck me how truly easy it is after you have been running outside consisitenly for a while. I ran a 10 minute mile and I wasn't even all that tired. Go me. I was proud of myself. Probably because I run with all these military people from work and they ususally leave me in their dust. I have to practically kill myself to keep up with them. They ususally pass me and come back and get me like 3 times.

After last weekend I don't think I am going to be drinking again for like a month. Blah.
