Woah. It’s been a weird week. Not in a bad way, just out of the norm. Monday, after work, I raced to the gym, ran a couple of miles (only had 32 minutes for my entire workout), then raced home, showered in record time, and then raced to my cousin’s house. I was babysitting her son Max from Tuesday morning at 6:15 until last night at 11 pm. Of course, I had a break in there to go to work. Anyway, Monica had to fly to Illinois for a meeting. Yow! Did that paragraph even make sense?
Anyway, because of the early start, I spent the night on Monday. We went to Frankie and Johnny’s for dinner (yum shrimp poboy!) and then she kind of showed me the ropes with Max. I hadn’t babysat him for quite a while, since before Katrina, and he’s grown up a lot. Awww, dang, he’s so cute! He talks a lot now. We were having fun last night naming animals in one of his books and the monsters in Monsters, Inc. The kid is a Pixar expert, no kidding. Two and a half and I’ll bet he could recite Finding Nemo word for word.
Anyway, so here it is Wednesday, and I’ve only seen George for about ten minutes since Sunday, it seems like. Yesterday I was so tired I drove all the way home for a thirty minute nap after work and before going back to Monica’s. Zzzz.
So. Project Runway finale. Tonight. Going to make some homemade pizza for the occasion. Did I say I was getting sick of pizza? Ehhh. I even had pizza last night from Whole Foods for dinner. (Mine’s better. But now I am inspired to use some portobello mushrooms on the pizza tonight. Wish I had some goat cheese. Mmmm. But I do have fresh basil.)
What else? Yesterday, the first piece of our exciting Pottery Barn purchase arrived. I’m so excited to get the second piece so we can put it together. I thought it was going to be delivered tomorrow, but apparently not. Anyway, I’ll put a pic up when we get the whole thing up. It’s a tall, narrow wine cabinet. Pretty! Storage! My favorite thing, storage. Of course, having a pretty piece of cabinetry in our otherwise hideous kitchen (excepting the new dishwasher and fridge, they’re pretty too) just makes me more eager to paint it a nice, warm, neutral color and to refinish the stairs. All in good time. Man, and if we could replace the white formica countertops, I’d be in heaven. Must wait until my new website takes off. Yeah.
Okay, off to work! (Am not re-reading post before I upload it. I am just a little too sleep deprived for that. So apoalogies if it’s gibberish.)
