Today was an interesting day. I slept till 8. For me, that's a big deal. As you age, you find that sleeping in bed for too long starts to hurt after awhile. Not saying that I'm old or anything....that's just what I've heard.
Went to school and spent about 3 hours researching articles for my research proposal. I found about 35 of them. I met David and Raelynn for lunch at Zaxby's and then took Raelynn with me back to school. I spent the next few hours moving desks and cleaning up.
After that, I had a hankering for a milkshake and some shoes. Weird combination, this I know. I went to two shoe stores before I found the Yellow Box flip flops I so dearly love. Just know that if you're in the Starkville area, Shoe Country next to the Hallmark store has a large selection and are reasonably priced. I tried to get Raelynn to wear some but she's adamant that she won't wear anything that goes between the toes. I was once like her but now have found the joy that is Yellow Box flip flops. I bought two pairs...one black with a white floral print and some silver iridescent ones. I then walked down to the Purple Elephant where I bought a charm for my Pandora bracelet as a Valentine's Day/St. Patrick's Day present to myself from myself. After that, I went to McDonald's to get a chocolate milkshake. It was yummy!
I came home and worked on my paper some. I'm about 20% done with the part that's due by Monday. I'll need to work on this some more tomorrow.
Tonight I wanted to watch Survivor but forgot that stupid basketball is on and will keep me from seeing a new episode for two weeks. Thankfully NBC ran two episodes of The Office. After that, I met my friend, Kathy S. for dinner at Old Venice. The manicotti there is something to write home about. I had a really good time.
I'm now off to bed.....I have to work on my paper some more tomorrow, and go to school and work some there too. Later tomorrow night I'll be going to the Twilight DVD release party at Sam Goody's where I can pick up my copy of the movie at midnight. Sometime on Saturday, Kathy and I are going to Wendy's house to view it in all her large flat screen surround sound goodness.
I'm so sad to see spring break coming to a close. I love having time off!!!! In the meantime, I'll consider today a banner day. New shoes, jewelry,chocolate, fabulous dinner with a friend.....it's a day I'll savor for some time to come!
