Happy Halloween!

We saw the cutest infant costume EVER today, at Bellevue Square: an 18-month old, in a stroller, dressed up as an OCTOPUS. AN OCTOPUS! I’m so doing that to my kids! Went shopping, found the perfect little black dress, a little blue dress, and a few business casual blouses to wear out with my slacks.

Alanagh came over, we ran around and took pictures, carved pumpkins and watched The Happening, skyped Kevin for a little bit to show off our awesome costumes (well, at least Alanagh’s… she was the Mad Hatter)… we’re up to all kinds of shenanigans and are about to watch The Village and The Sixth Sense – so peace out! Happy Halloween and don’t forget to ‘fall back’ in a few hours!

PS I kind of quit my job today. It’s JUST COFFEE, CALM DOWN.

24 whole hours

Today was actually okay… I went to work, then school, snapped a picture outside Meany Hall on the way to pick up books at Suzzallo, came home and missed the boy. Laaaame. I wasn’t nearly as upset as I thought I would be, which is good, I think, because it means that I’m so much more comfortable and confident in our relationship. Yay? I think so.

Well, day one has come to a close. Only 52 left to go…

Misty mornings

Today was super stressful; worked from 9-1:30P, came home and ran around writing up my Landscape Architecture term paper outline and proposal, went to class, came home and watched the Forgotten then worked on my Landscape paper for American Art.

For my landscape paper, I ended up viewing in person (for extra credit, yes) Frederic Edwin Church’s A Country Home at the SAM and writing three pages on its aesthetic, formal and ideological contents. It was ALMOST fun, if not for Prof. Casteras’ “23 Rules” page which lays out the 23 things that will guarantee failure for her course (including things as silly as italicizing the titles of pieces as well as avoiding dangling participles… still not sure what that means, grammatically…) Finished at midnight and then studied for my 17th C Rome midterm. Do I know how to have fun, or what?

71 hours =)

Here comes the sun

Today was kind of long; worked a princess shift (10-2), then came home and cleaned up before my fabulous skype date :) I’m just happy these days – it’s wonderful, such a lightness of being… Anyway, took a nap, made dinner and worked on my resume / cover letter before skipping out to see District 9… it was pretty good, really… wet. Lots of icky liquid and peeling skin and other gross alien things, but it was kind of sweet, in its own way…

Well. Last night was hard, but sweet; filled with promises. I remember waking up for work and thinking Oh, he’s gone… I’m not upset, just anxious. It feels like everyone is leaving and I’m the only left behind to watch, wave and wait. It’s awful. That’s the really big thing I dislike about going to school so close to home – everyone abandons me for fabulous adventures while I’m stuck here, counting down the days.

Today was otherwise filled with work, awkward questions, sleep and romance. I finished The Time Traveler’s Wife this afternoon before surrendering to a much-needed nap before heading out to see Art & Copy at the Northwest Film Forum — ran across this spiffy mural project en route.

Quick, the draw bridge!

Long day. Up too late again; went to work from 8-2:30 – came home, cleaned up, got ready and went to my first Dominican Mass up in the District. Came home, about to watch Amazing Grace : the story of 18th C English abolitionist William Wilberforce and his fight to end the slave trade. We’ll see…

GORGEOUS day, worked from 8:30-1pm which was faaaaantaaaastic. Got off work, threw on my bikini and booked it to the beach. Ahh, island living…

It was one of those days. You know, where it sometimes feels like it would be worth it to just walk out on your lunch and never look back… or gnawing off your hand would be less painful than staying at work. You know how it is.

Out cold…

Today… was an interesting day.

Worked a half-shift this morning, realized that I’m not the only one who ends up crazy frustrated / potentially homicidal sometimes — always nice to be validated. Came home, passed out on my couch; woke up, went to bed and slept for another few hours. Yeah, I know – super productive… Anyway, made up for it with an hour of GRE study — oh, the joy. Do I know how to have fun or what?

There’s nothing quite like the horror of realizing that you have to be at work at 8:30 am the morning after a big party/holiday/etc. and this weekend was no exception. To be fair, it wasn’t so bad — we had maybe 1/4 our normal traffic, an amazing crew and everyone was equally exhausted (or otherwise…) basically, of all the days/situations to work a full day post-party, this was one of the best.
