It’s still Friday, right? Well, it is as I’m typing this, so I figure it’s not too late for a Friday Five. I would say that I’m doing this late at night because I’ve been oh-so-busy. Nope. Not the case. Just lazy. I feel like I’m the only person who isn’t in the “I’m so busy” rat race these days. I feel so left out.
Anyway, enough of that. Five things on my mind right now:
1. My new approach to working my obliques:
The chips are just out of reach, but since that won’t stop me, I’ll just crunch my way through the bag. Also, note the lovely pile of crumbs on my pants. No shame!
2. Geronimo got his (in)famous lion cut this week.
Every time I look at him, I smile. I keep saying, “You’re so pretty.” That’s not weird, is it? Thanks for all the reassurance on my confession about his weight gain. Y’all were so sweet to tell me he’s not that fat. He is, but I still appreciated it.
3. I’ve been binge watching Switched at Birth on Netflix this week. It’s a good show, but I have to LOL at the Army references. (One of the minor characters is a private.)
I know that it’s just a tv show, but it’s still fun to sit back feeling morally superior as I spot all the things that are incorrect. Uniform gaffes are the most common (soldiers do NOT roll up the sleeves of their ACU top!), but there are plenty of other things. Like when they kept referring to the fact that they were deploying again as a “redeployment.” Not actually what that means, but thanks for playing!
4. I thought I was behind on my reading goal, but it turns out I’m just really bad at math.
So it turns out that the end of May doesn’t mark the middle of the year, so I don’t have to be halfway to my goal by then. Whoops. If you’re curious, the best book I’ve read recently was “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” by Mindy Kaling. I’ve rated a lot of books at only being middle of the road this year. Either I’ve become too harsh or I’m starting to suck at picking books out.
5. I’ve got a trip to Dallas on the books soon.
I’m most excited about seeing my family and friends. I was so spoiled living near everyone before! There are plenty of fun things on tap (Great Strides, visiting the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning studio, running around White Rock Lake), but I’m dreading the drive. I’ve never driven that far by myself before. (I’ve done 6 hours solo, maybe 7, but this will take me more like 10.) I’ve got a few interesting books on tape and I plan to hit up every Starbucks I see. Any other suggestions?
Have a good weekend!
