What I'm Loving Wednesday
I'm loving...that today is really my Thursday because of the Veteran's Day Holiday on Thursday. this is probably about the bajillionth time I have mentioned that this week....because I am really in need of a LONG weekend away from work.
I'm loving...that having the day off means I had a free day to schedule myself a much-needed hair appointment. Things are looking rough to put it mildly. When one of your steps in your "must do before I leave the house in the morning" routine is cover your roots, then you are overdue to get you @ss to the hair salon. And PS, you don't need fancy over-priced products especially for root cover up. Cheap drugstore eye shadow in a shade close to your hair color works wonderfully. Just spray a little hairspray down first to make it a little tacky, they brush on some powder. Magic.
I'm loving...that I get to go to the Maryland-Notre Dame game this weekend. My Terps are pretty terrible but I haven't been to a game yet this year, so I am looking forward to it.
I'm loving...that I finally got time to switch out my summer clothes for my winter clothes this past weekend. Also gave me a good opportunity to do some cleaning/purging in my closet and I managed top get two HUGE bags of clothes together to donate. Now if only I could muster the energy to take the boxes of summer clothes down to storage....
I'm loving...this exact time of year. Post-Halloween but still Pre-Thanksgiving. You get to start the warm and fuzzy holiday feeling and enjoy it before it usually turns into a stressful time of obligations and functions and to do lists and gift shopping and all of that. Thanksgiving is really my favorite holiday and I especially enjoy the few weeks leading up to it.
I'm loving...that even though this will be my very first Thanksgiving ever where I won't be with at least one of my parents, I will have MVP to keep me company back here in DC.
I'm secretly loving...that I don't have to make that dreadful Thanksgiving drive up I-95. Shhhh, don't tell my family! But seriously, when what should take you three hours turns into a 7 hour drive, ANYONE'S patience would be tested.
I'm loving...that MVP comes home tomorrow. He has been gone for 2 weeks for work and I have missed him. A lot. I am so proud of him and the work he was doing but selfishly, I hated that I didn't get to see him and some days, between both of our hectic schedules, didn't get to talk on the phone. Am so so SO happy that I will get to see him at the end of the day tomorrow. Can't get here soon enough.
I'm loving... that my tomorrow is scheduled FULL of meetings. For once, this is a good thing, because it will make the day go by THAT much faster :)
