Happy Weekend! Whew! For being recently relieved of almost all work I sure do like it when the weekend comes. There is just a slightly greater degree of relaxation that happens, I think, at least for meeeeez. Also helping with the relaxation is that I finished my final corrections on my dissertation and submitted it to the university. Double whew!
Today has been a pretty good Friday all round. I went to bootcamp, came home for lunch and to submit my dissertation, and then went back down to town to run oodles of errands. I had to go to Home Depot to get top soil for the trees that we planted last year. I had to go to Target to get a party bag for my niece Ella, who's first birthday party is tomorrow. I had to go to the pet store to buy a shit-ton of dog food for our little princess Haruki. And I also had to give a boatload of blood at the hospital for some pregnancy tests. On a side note, being a phlebotomist must be a very strange job. I mean, imagine purposefully taking a very sharp object and pushing it through someone's skin. Weird, yes?
Also, did I mention that I went to the grocery store? While I was there I was delighted to see a lot of loose strawberries.
It was like a real market instead of a corporate grocery store. Cute, right?
Also cute? I think I might've felt baby move today. That's very strange to write, but it was really sort of fun when it happened. I smiled, which seems like a good sign. Kinda makes up for my boo-hoo post from yesterday, and also for the fact that I drove around yesterday like this:
Pants unbuttoned. Yup. Next I'm going to start wearing a greasy trucker cap and bending over so people can see my ass. It'll be a new TLC show--something like "White Trash Mommas" or "White Trash and Knocked Up!"
*To what summer fruit are you most looking forward?
