Awkward and Awesome: The Sunshine Edition

I'm back at my apartment for the first time in a while. And I'm staying for a week or so.

I'm looking forward to a little space for myself, at least for a day or two, and some quiet time to get work done. I left class tonight feeling like I have a lot of work to get done in the next six weeks or so.

For now, I'm relaxing and enjoying the chance to sleep in tomorrow without a puppy dog or two to wake me up.

Now, on to a summary of my week.

- The puppy used my glasses as a chew toy. And I didn't have a spare, so I had to wear contacts way more than my eyes appreciated and use my sunglasses inside. I was pretty cool.
- I put on sunscreen this morning, but missed a few spots. I have some really weird burned spots.
- Realizing that my class tonight is going to require way more work than I thought it would before the end of the quarter.
- My hair right now. I attempted to dye it lighter for the summer and now I have a weird reverse ombre with roots going on. I don't even know how to describe it.
- My cravings for sweets have gotten a little out of hand. With family visiting I'm constantly in vacation mode.

- A trip up to Vancouver that included seeing Taming of the Shrew in a park.
- Champagne grapes as a snack. Seriously, try them!
- My parents got an above ground pool and the weather makes it lovely. I actually worked from their patio this morning just to enjoy it.
- Maybe having a place to live for the fall. I'm meeting up with someone to discuss the possibility this weekend.
- As rambunctious as a puppy can be, I am loving my parents' new lab Cade. He's really laid back (for a puppy) and incredibly smart. My next plan: teach him how to high five.

What has been awkward or awesome about your week?


  1. Ooooh, where will you be living (if it works out)?

  2. Awesome this week - not getting stuck in the flooding bayou and staying out of the rain (for the most part)

  3. For me it's been super awkward that the weather has been so nice, because I want to wear summer clothes to work but they've got the AC so cranked up in my building I need to wear a jacket inside. But hey, I'm not complaining about the sun!

  5. Oh, man. That glasses situation with your puppy blows! I always keep a spare on hand because I get so freaked out something will happen to my regular glasses! I would be lost without them. My eyes can only handle contacts for a few days before I need a break. Hopefully you can get a new pair soon?
