My Life Not Even on the D-List

Today, I slept in late and went out to a nice lunch where I ordered a lemonade with a little kick in it, to kick off the weekend.

I made a quick trip to the fabric store where I bought an industrial strength needle and thread to repair a hole in the couch. Chris bought the couches from Craigslist before we moved in together and I was never much of a fan. The couches are nice enough (originally from Macy's Furniture Gallery) but they don't seem to hold up well. They are huge and overstuffed and no matter how I sit on them, my feet never seem to be able to touch the ground. Lounging on them isn't much more comfortable because the cushions start to smother you all on their own. And they've always smelled a little like dog; we don't even have a dog.

The rest of the day we clean the apartment like tornadoes in preparation for his parents' Sunday arrival. Things are really starting to look good and we got a much amount of stuff put away. I started running out of steam though, so I hope nobody looks in my closet. It actually looks like a tornado hit in there!

The reason we cleaned so much today is because I won't be around for a few days, so if I don't blog, it's not just because I'm being lazy. My mom, sister, and I are going to see the loveable Kathy Griffin in Seattle on Saturday. I'm heading up to my parents' house tonight so we can all go together tomorrow. Then I have to hightail it early in the morning on Sunday, to get back to our place before Chris' parents do.

Kathy Griffin - Fox Theater in Atlanta

I am giving myself Monday as a recovery day, so hopefully by Tuesday, I'll move forward with my goals, and hopefully while I am gone, I don't fall off the bandwagon!
