What a whirlwind weekend we have had. I had the speech in the middle of the afternoon on Friday, which was quite inconvenient. I sucked, and I could tell I lost what few listeners I had half-way through. Considering the fact that I could barely find time or motivation to practice, it isn’t surprising. Oh well, I now say I’ve been there, done that and gotten the t-shirt. Literally. I got a free conference t-shirt just for presenting. Whoo hoo.
Saturday we cleaned, and that was good. We put a rug down in the living room last weekend after Mike & Jason put together our new coffee table and end tables. (Target – I couldn’t find any that I loved for the room at Ikea.) Tara, Elaine & Kenny came over for dinner Saturday night, and since Tara & Elaine both have cat allergies we vacuumed a lot. I sorted through old, lingering mail. I dusted. All of those exciting things. Dinner was fabulous, enhanced by the great company.
Tara spent the night, so we kicked off today by heading over to Ihop. Mmmm… pancakes. We spent the afternoon lounging, and I am all caught up on Project Runway now. We laughed about Uli’s whole “I love hot weather, I am from Miami, it will be a flowing dress with bold prints!” thing. Every.Single.Time. I still think Jeffrey’s latest creation sucked, but whatever. I’m looking forward to the finale now. Mike made us steaks for dinner as a birthday treat, and they were delicious. Now, it is on to Organic Chemistry and it starts all over again.
I get to find out tomorrow or Tuesday if Mike is going back to London this week. Seriously, it might be that last minute. I think he thinks it won’t happen, but I’m not sure. I’ll believe it when I see him here all week. October will see him travelling a lot, which is just weird. In the whole time I have known him, he has never travelled this much. Before it was unusual for him to travel more than once every 6 months; now it this will be his 4th trip overseas this year. I’m ok with it though – I would love to take Jason to London for Spring Break, so bring on the airline miles!
