I haven’t written anything in my book the past few days so I’m not even sure I remember much of what went on the last week or so.
Work has been pretty slow lately so I’m not sure there anything exciting there for now. I did work from 230am – 2pm on Thursday, had a deadline to meet and wanted to get everything done on time. That made Friday a short day too which was nice.
Saturday Erin and I headed down to Seymour to see Greg at camp, we had fun just being outside and seeing new things. erin was absolutely thrilled at the chance she had to go down the zip line. She was grinning the rest of the day. We did get to see some good storms on the way home too, we stayed dry but it was moving towards us as we were coming around the east side of Indy.
Sunday I got two big things accomplished. First, I washed my truck. Washed it good. I took it to the do-it-yourself place and powerwashed the bugs and junk off the front. Then I took it back home and got the bucket and sponges out and went to town cleaning it. After that I hand dried it with a chamois and then let it air dry the last bit. Then I worked on the tires and wheels and got the glass sparkling clean. I waxed it after that and Rain-X’d the glass. Looked perfect. I went to the grocery store after that, of course it rained just enough to spot everything up. I didn’t rain at our house, but 6 blocks away at the grocery store it did. Nice.
After that, I was on the couch doing nothing. It was wonderful.
Monday I went to Ohio for work and relaxed at home a bit.
Today was another lackluster day at work and I’m just chilling tonight.
Thanksgiving weekend has nearly ended. 4 days of nothing and it was wonderful. I spent Thursday cooking and hanging out with the fam. Nothing out of the ordinary really, same old crap. I did go home early enough to watch the Colts game though, a victory that I honestly wasn’t sure would happen but they came through and pulled it off.
Friday I thought about getting up early to head out for the Black Friday sales, I slept in instead. It was nice to just lounge around for a bit in the morning. I did finally head to town though, got one Christmas present bought and then went to the bank. I was home around 130.Â Erin came over later in the day and we headed out for the evening.
We went to Sears, honestly it wasn’t so bad. Sure there were people around, but I didn’t think the crowds were too bad and the cashiers seemed to be moving along fast enough. After that we headed to Texas Roadhouse to meet up with Kyle. A good dinner with a good conversation is always welcome.
There are times that we get so caught up in the world going on around us I think sometimes we forget the little things that make us happy. A nice slow dinner, a great conversation about everything and nothing. Sometimes just being there with friends is much more important than just about anything else that we think is “important” in the world.
I spent Saturday cleaning, Erin came over for dinner and we watched the first two Indiana Jones movies. Just relaxing.
Today I’m watching Season 3 of The Office and doing as little as possible besides laundry so I have clean clothes for work tomorrow.
That’s the weekend. Nothing essentially but it was so rewarding and felt so good too.
I’m sitting here doing absolutely nothing. I mean I got up today, sat around and read the paper and then I took a shower. After that I got on the net and piddled around for a bit. I decided to work on my APA paper for school today. I think I have all the sources I’m going to need, but I might still do an interview just to add some credibility to my hypothesis. Who knows though I’m looking for a new web host too… I’m paying too much right for the features I get. I need more storage space… It would make file transfers so much easier for me. I’ll find something I guess.
Seriously though, it’s 4 o’clock and I’ve done nothing and still have nothing to do… I guess I’ll go pay some bills and maybe watch a movie or something… Maybe I’ll sleep…
