Sniffle, sniffle, sniffle. Went to doctor this morning. Got a bagful of medicine. Yay! Love nice doctors who take pity on poor patients with insurance that barely pays for allergy medicine. As soon as I can get signed up with the mail-order pharmacy, though, I’ll be awash in Allegra-D. Can’t wait!

Went to Curves last night. Made a nice healthy dinner. I’m just a freakin’ model of healthiness. Except for the York Peppermint Pattie I scarfed down in the car on the way back from Curves. But as it happens, I did choose the lowest-point chocolate candy I could find at Walgreens. One of those big patties is only 3 points. Yum, and worth every bite. But on top of the oatmeal raisin cookie I had at lunch, it probably was unnecessary. Ah well. But now I’m on antibiotics for the next ten days and doesn’t that mean no drinking? Phooey.

Am planning on a nice, relaxing weekend. Going to the Quarter with George to find him some doc martens. May splurge on some Lancome mascara with my babysitting money. I would never buy $22 mascara otherwise. Plus, dammit, I’ve lost 25 lbs. I should buy myself a little beauty gift. And if I buy waterproof, it’ll come in handy for the wedding too. I’m good at justification, huh?

Also would like to see a movie this weekend. Have much catching up to do. Want to see Anchorman. And The Village, before whatever the (supposedly lame) twist ending becomes public knowledge. And the new Harry Potter is playing at the IMAX. (I always want to say the iMac.) Could end up being a busy weekend. Also must mow the lawn. It is getting very overgrown. But heat index is hovering around 105. Not nice. And I have mean things to say to people who insist I wear long pants while mowing and weedwhacking. I don’t care if I get rocks embedded in my shins. Otherwise I’ll pass out from heat.

Two weeks and I’ll be in DC! Shopping at H&M and IKEA. Can’t wait. Ooh, can get some new clothes for new job. V important. Woo!
