What're Ya Doin?!

Not much, that's the answer to that. I'm thinking about doing another "Day in the Life of" so you can watch me go to work, come home, watch tv, sleep, go to work, come home, watch tv, sleep....

This post is just going to be a bunch of thoughts about what I do on my days off.

I have 3 days in a row off. HOW WEIRD IS THAT! So yesterday I organized some more stuff. Wrapping paper and cards and stationery. That's right, folks, I have a problem. A paper-buying problem.

In my future home, I will have a deluxe gift-wrapping station. It's just got to happen. Because I like it.

After organizing the paper, I went to buy some more things (with JJ). I needed some more work clothes that are summer appropriate (aka lighter, since I found out that summer + humidity = sweaty me = nasty!), so we went to Tyson's Corner (aka one of the biggest malls ever, it's gotta be!). I got some pants at Old Navy for only $6/pair (awesome), then some stuff at H&M, then we decided to eat some Panda Express while we were there.

The weird part about living in a city with convenient public transportation? We NEVER eat fast food. EVER. So I miss things like Del Taco and Panda Express and the occasional McDonald's.


And induces comas, apparently. I slept from 8:30 PM last night to 6:45 this morning, with only a slight break during the middle of the night to take off my jeans and stuff.

This morning, I was up early, so I watched JJ eat some yogurt (ew it was so gross) and then went to the DMV. The DMV here opens at 8 AM, which was awesome, since I made it there by 8:30, so I only had a 20-minute wait once I got my number... but then the lady that called my number didn't speak English hardly at all and didn't understand my question so she left her station and just went away somewhere leaving me with no car title or registration or forms or ID, or I would've just left (the lady next to her didn't have a customer and answered my question in 10 seconds flat).

Then I found a Target I didn't know existed and bought some shoes, undershirts, and a cute dress.

Then I went to JJ's work and picked him up for lunch, where I found out what he had found out: He got a raise! WOOOOOOOOOT!

We ate lunch across the street from his office, I had beef stroganoff (yum!), and then I went to Harris-Teeter.

I WAS SO GLAD I DID! It was like a Harmon's grocery, which I love! And I miss that about Utah. And it's only 2 blocks further than the Giant I've been going to (which is depressing like Albertson's was).

So anyway. That's all I've been doing. I'm boring.

TOMORROW>>> JJ is getting Lasik!

Take pictures of JJ with those weird glasses they make you wear after Lasik. I need a good laugh :)

Del Taco and you do miss Utah. :)

Don't worry, Rika, you are plenty more exciting than I am. A mystery Target appears! You use money. It's quite effective! Ha ha ha

Horray to: 1. H&M
2. Finding something comparable to Harmons

Boo to: 1. Sweating when not working out. Blech.
2. You being so stinkin' far away.

I went to Tyson's Corner last year and that mall IS freaking huge! Sounds like you are having fun out there. : )
