Thursday Randoms...

Chris has been working a different shift at work and going in at noon. So this morning since I didn't have to work until 2, we went out for breakfast at a dive.  I love going there because the food is great and so inexpensive.  I always get the $5.75 special which includes a Belgian waffle, two eggs, two slices of bacon, and two sausage links. I never eat all of it... but it's cheaper to just order this combo.

Speaking of work... I really love my job.   I am a lead help desk analyst for a small company. After teaching middle school for nine years, this job was a welcome change.  My last few years of teaching weren't the greatest and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to have this work from home job.  It doesn't hurt that last night my boss told me I was "fantastic" and "she wished she could clone me". That was definitely nice to hear.

Yesterday after work I was exhausted.  So I got in bed pretty early to catch up on some shows on my DVR.  I am shocked every week on 16 & Pregnant when these pregnant girls are allowed to have their baby daddy move in with them.  Never in a million years would my parents have allowed for that.  Am I the only one who thinks that is crazy?  Then I watched Private Practice and bawled my eyes out.  I love that show.  It is always so emotional to watch; but I enjoy it every week.  I am sad this week was the season finale.

I am so glad the weather is nicer here.  I love having the windows and doors open all day long.  I am sure in another month I will be hot and complaining because we have no central air.

After plowing through the first two books in the Shades of Grey series and the first two books in the Hunger Games series... I now need to finish Bloom, read Mockingjay, Fifty Shades Freed, and Skinnydipping by Bethenny Frankel (a Mother's Day gift).  I better get going...

I ordered this new iPhone case today.  Rue Lala had them on sale for like $13, but I wasn't about to pay a $10 shipping charge for a case that weighs less than 12 oz.  I found the same case on the Lilly Pulitzer website for $19.95, but with free shipping. So I ordered it there.

That Belgian waffle looks uh-mazing. Let me know what you think of Mockingjay... I sort of lost interest.

Congrats on those kind words from your boss. Always nice to feel appreciated. Sounds like excellent job security. Also, I've been meaning to ask you what it is you do for work. Still so happy that is something you enjoy doing that gives such great flexibility.

LOVE anything Lilly and I agree on the Rue shipping thing. Spending $10 to ship something is such a rip.
