Random What's Up

Hi, Everyone. I haven’t forgotten about you! I’ve just had a TON of work to catch up on and many other real life things to do . . .

I really appreciate all of your wonderfully sweet thoughts and comments – they have really helped me out a lot. Knowing you guys are out there is quite an awesome feeling, especially when I am struggling a bit . . .

Still waiting for the other shoe to drop at work. I just want it over with. I already have 10 pounds of stuff to do and only a 5 pound bag – I will either end up with 30 pounds of stuff to do or I’ll get a lot of unexpected free time . . .

Over the weekend, went to Old Town Alexandria and hung out for an afternoon. I actually saw James Carville and Mary Matalin (along with a daughter) while sitting in an ice cream shop on Saturday. They do live in Old Town and occasionally can be seen amongst the normal folks. Woo! Celebrity sighting! Well, at least for a wonky girl like me, they are really cool people to see up close . . .

I bought 2 kinds of yarn on Saturday morning – one set of really soft, multicolored pastel yarn to knit a small blanket for future use, and one set of soft, woolen brown, black and gray yarn to make a long, skinny fashionable scarf. I’m kind of excited about those projects and can’t wait to have some time to start them . . .

Taxes are filled out and sent for this year and bills are all paid for this month. Mr. Random and I were especially inspired by watching MTV’s “True Life: I’m Having Financial Difficulties” show on Sunday night. We thought, “gee, it’s good that we aren’t that bad off . . . boy, we really should get started on these bills, huh?” . . .

The Random Mother-in-Law is now coming in May instead of April, so we have an extra month to get a new sink for the bathroom and do some other improvements . . .

Last night we went to a comedy open mike where my friend, J, was performing. It was a brand new venue with a really cool, comfy vibe and I hope that location takes off. There were a few comics that were actually good, but quite a few clunkers . . . and it’s sometimes really painful to sit through the clunkers . . .

I’m teaching ESL two nights this week instead of one – my team teacher has to go out of town on Thursday, so I’m “subbing” for her class. I know I’ll be super tired when this week is over, with all of the nights I’ll be out and about . . .

Saturday is Mr. Random’s birthday and we will be going to dinner at a barbeque place with a group of friends and then going to see the movie, “300.” I was not really all that excited to see the movie, but Mr. Random and another good friend of mine really want to see it, so I’d probably end up seeing it one way or another anyway . . .

I hope everything is going well for everyone. I’m sending many happy vibes back out to you all!
