vrijdag 19 juni 2009

L has been at work all day, so I've been having a 'random' day at home: ran five miles this morning, then came home and showered, ate, cleaned the apartment a little, did some laundry, made myself an iced chai tea (nowhere near as good as the ones you can buy...) and worked on my Life Scrapbook for a few hours. I'm almost done with it -- only three pages left to go until it's up to date, including the one for my sister's wedding last October. Though I realized that I accidentally skipped 4 pages right in the middle of the book... so I guess I can stick some random stuff into those pages when I run out of space (which won't take much longer -- I've already covered pretty much all the major milestones from my birth up to the present). Anyway, so after I got sick of that, I finished reading the fourth Twilight book (for the second time) and now I'm lying on the living room floor watching Return to Oz (yeah, blast from the past :)). I'm trying to soak up as many of these "lazy days" as I can, since they'll be nothing but fond memories once PA school starts next year.

On tap for tomorrow: a weightlifting workout, grocery shopping, paying the phone bill (oh, thrills), and maybe a trip to Interact. My car is still full of all the old clothes and junk I cleaned out last weekend, all of which needs to go to Goodwill or somewhere similar, and L likes the idea behind Interact (support for battered women and children) better than Goodwill. Last time we tried to take things there, they were moving to a new building and thus closed; hopefully we'll have better luck tomorrow.
