Today is Friday. Thank goodness!
Things that happened today:
1. Its the first day of Fall!
My favorite season out of all of them! I miss the colors and the cool mornings and warm afternoons. The smells and cute coats and scarves. So many of my memories growing up are in the autumn. I remember one year my older sister and I had music lessons the same afternoon Our music teachers lived next door to each other. I would have my cello lesson first and then wait for Elizabeth to finish up her viola lesson. I would sit in her little yellow volkswagon with the windows down and the autumn sun would warm the car while I did homework or read a book. I would hear the leaves crunch outside and know my sister was done with her lesson and walking to the car to take us home.
2. National Indian Day
It's National Indian Day! We got the day off from work today. I was glad to be able to sleep in a little bit and get some much needed cleaning and laundry done.
Because I was home today, I was able to witness the cuteness that is my turtle. Bobby has started feeding him tiny pieces of shrimp for dinner and he LOVES it. We've decided that we are now just as annoying as people with normal pets because all we do is bring up how cute Cornelius is at any available moment.
co-worker : "Look at this new green pen i have"
me: "Do you know what else is green? Cornelius, and he is soooo cute. Yesterday he did a somersault in the water and then sat in the sun for 5 hours!!!"
I was also very brave today and went to my first church dinner group. I decided to sign up to meet some nice people seeing I can't seem to meet any nice people in South Florida. We actually didn't have dinner but went to Yogutland which is apparently where all of the 13-16 year olds in Coral Springs hang out.
side note: Teenage girls today are horrible. They dress like prostitutes and hang all over boys with "Justin Bieber" hair. Come on girls! Have some pride in yourselves and stop letting these boys think that they can get you to do whatever they want (like buy them yogurt). Its OK to stay at home and play board games with your parents once in awhile.
I had a good time overall. Only three of us could meet tonight but hopefully next time a few more will come. One of the women was from Peru and the other was from Jamaica. I felt little un-exotic but it was fun to see what we all had in common coming from such different backgrounds. Even if we don't all become best friends its nice to socialize with good people. I feel very very brave and proud of myself for stepping outside my comfort zone. Yea me!
By cleaning my bathroom today I was able to finally find my tweezers! What a relief because my eyebrows were slowly creeping across my face and down my eyelids. I've never been great about plucking and my mom has naturally perfect eyebrows which I obviously did not inherit. My best friend Makenzie told me once in college that I really needed to pluck my eyebrows. Only true friends tell each other these things. We still like to drop it into our conversation now and again, making sure that we both are on top of our eyebrow grooming! Ever since then I've tried really hard to pluck my dark hedges, but it isn't easy when you can't find the tweezers.
Hey! I still have 2 more days till work. Lovely.
