Almost TGIF

It seems like it has been a long week for me.  Monday was inservice for school so no kids.  My library has been freezing the last week.  It has hovered around 63 degrees most days.  Today it got up to a whopping 66.  I’ve been wearing a jacket and gloves off and on, but it’s still pretty miserable.  Yesterday I either had a cold or massive allergies and I felt miserable most of the day.  I didn’t do much work at all.  Luckily I can look busy without doing much.  Most of the time I really am busy, but yesterday was just not my day to get much done.  I came home after school and intended to go to church for the All Saints vigil mass, but had to wait for my GPS that I ordered from Amazon to be delivered.  I didn’t want it left on my front porch with a bunch of random trick or treaters walking by.  It came too late for me to go to church so I headed into town to avoid handy out candy.  The doorbell drives the dogs crazy and I just wasn’t in the mood to deal with it.  I was still feeling pretty miserable, but I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and found some curtains on sale for my dining area.  After that, I went to Chipotle to get a burrito for dinner.  I got a deal on it since I was in “costume” as a teacher.  Paid less than $4.00 for the meal.  I brought it home, kept the lights off downstairs, and headed up to my bedroom.  I took a benadryl, 1/2 a tylenol p.m., and two regular tylenol.  I was fast asleep within an hour.  It seemed to help and I felt like I got some decent sleep.  I felt better this morning, but still have some symptoms that pop up at times. 

Tonight I went to church, picked up a sandwich at Jimmy John’s, then headed to Scrabble practice.  I played a my personal best high scoring turn tonight.  I played the word “chasings” for 185 points as a triple-triple bingo.  Matt challenged it, but it was a good play.  I beat him by almost 200 points tonight.  I still haven’t officially played a 500 point game, but got close with 489 points tonight. 

Tomorrow I’m going with the middle school band to a high school football game as a chaperone.  It will be a long night, but I’ll take my Kindle with me and probably read a lot.  My new dining room table will be delivered on Saturday and then Matt and I are going to the Olivia Newton John concert on Sunday.  He bought me tickets for it a few months ago as an early birthday present.  We are going to a fancy restaurant for dinner as well.  Sunday is also our one year anniversary.  Our first date was a year ago.  My, how time flies when you’re having fun.  I have to say that moving to San Antonio was probably one of the best decisions I’ve made.

Hey Gal,

I just want you to know I read every time you write. I mostly read with my iPad through your RSS feed, though, and it doesn't play nice with blogger comments. Makes me lazy, Sorry.
