Make New Friends, But Keep the Old

An old college theatre teacher of hubby and I's came into town today.  We showed her around town a little and went out to dinner.

It was nice to talk to people who had known us years ago, and to talk about the hometown and theatre again.  I hope it will be like that again when we move back.  The house market is much better here, so we are tempted to just sell the house and move without jobs, but I don't think that would be such a good idea.

I keep wanting to write something better here, but I never have the time.  Writer's block is the worst.

A co-worker was saying she wants to make the office all these deserts and sweets that I can't eat.  I told her it was unfair to make all those things, and she got me talking about recipes for things my mom used to made.

I realized she got me talking about food and said to her "Bad Friend, no doughnut!"

Customs Charges

I got a bill from UPS in the mail about the anniversary rings we ordered from Etsy.  Apparently we have to pay $84 for customs fees because they came from out of the country.  I had no idea that I would have to pay an extra amount on top of paying for the rings.  It's money that I don't really have, and I'm not even sure I owe.

I'll have to give them a call on Tuesday anyway, as it was due two days before I even got the letter.

Downward Facing Lazy

I've been feeling so sore lately, and it's been hard to get out of bed or feel comfortable when I'm in bed.  Someone brought up yoga at work tonight and I thought it was a good idea to start doing it every night before bed.

Let's see how long that lasts.

The Hub started playing Blossom a week or so ago, so I started DVRing it to watch later.  I never watched it when it was on, I guess it was never really my thing.

At first I was disappointed because it seemed so basic.  Blossom has a problem that starts in her room, next scene she's trying to talk to her dad and it doesn't work.  She goes to her neighbor's for advice.  She doesn't believe her neighbor, so stays up into the night and goes downstairs for a snack.  There she runs into her brother who reminds her that nothing is worse than being an ex-addict like him.  Joey comes down and says something stupid, and then the next scene she works it out with her dad.

Thankfully I stuck with it because they finally broke out of the mold of sitcominess.  The Rockumentary one is hilarious.

Posting the Opinions

I saw an internship in my hometown for Yelp, but it wanted at least 10 reviews on their site from them.  It wasn't a paid internship, but I realized I'd never left a review there, but use it almost daily.  I made a promise to devote today to writing at least 5, and wrote two other blog posts for my other blog for the rest of the month.

It feels good to write and have nothing else to do for the day.  I'm sure I could have cleaned or gone grocery shopping.  But it feels good to take a day for me and my art.  Cleaning can wait.

Friend R is back from Ohio and crashing on the couch tonight.  It feels like he wasn't gone that long.
