Friday was payday, so obviously that meant I needed to go buy essentials I couldn’t afford Thursday LOL. I’ve been so frugal lately that I used my debit card four times (twice at Jo-Anns for coupon purposes, Target, and then Burger King because traffic was so bad that I was starving) and my bank FREAKED OUT. They sent me texts and emails asking if my card was being used fraudulently. Thanks for the faith, bank!
I swung by my friend S’s house to quickly pick up her quilting supplies and 2.5 hours later she, her husband and I were yawning in the living room. Time flies when you’re with good friends!
I was SO productive today! I am looking for a cheaper apartment. I LOVE my view, but I’d also loving having a couple hundred more dollars each month. I drove around my neighborhood and called a bunch of numbers. I found one I really like, so fingers crossed!
Then a lawyer friend texted me and asked if I wanted to go check out a presentation about DB Cooper at the Washington State History Museum. Uhh, duh! One great thing about our local libraries is that they have a limited number of passes to the museums. I drove there as quickly as possible and checked out the last set of free passes. It was a great exhibit and a really interesting museum all around! (PLUS! Free!) I need to go again on a day that I have more time and can really explore.
I normally go to church on Sunday nights, but there was a leadership event after service, and a bunch of us had plans to go out Saturday night, so I went to Saturday night service. It was AWESOME! I had so much fun! The leadership training was also great and really inspiring.
Of course, line dancing the night away was a blast!!!! It’s been awhile since I’ve been out dancing (the last time I went there I didn’t dance at all). I love getting to know people here. Everyone is so nice, fun and welcoming. The only problem was that I drank a lot of soda that night to stay awake, and then I couldn’t sleep at all.
I finally hit the hay at 3 AM. Oops!
I didn’t get enough sleep last night. If I drink I end up barely sleeping and waking up early. Five hours after I closed my eyes I accepted the reality that I was awake and started a pot of coffee. After a few hours of reading the paper and drinking coffee I forced myself to go to the gym.
I don’t know if it even counts because after 21 minutes at a “brisk” walk on the treadmill, I went home and laid back down on the couch. I had a lovely nap and watched a lot of football. I finally showered at about 5:00, and only because I had plans. Secret: I’m writing this at 7:00 PM, need to be somewhere at 7:30, and still don’t have makeup on.
But BONUS! I get to see my BFF tonight thanks to a super long layover! Wahoo!
