Five on Friday #15/Little Notes #9
UNO - Dear food,
I'm sorry for our relationship lately. I know we're not as close as we used to be, but maybe that's a good thing? I mean, its kind of embarassing really. I'm afraid to go out to restaurants with other people because they will experience just how little I eat and I'm afraid they will get concerned. It's not you, it's me. On the other hand, watching the scale go down 10 lbs in the last month or so has been very delightful. Can I get 10 more?
DOS - Dear Upcoming Plans,
I really should be scheduling out the Disney World trip, I just haven't because the website is such a pain to use. I should also call the tattoo place to put down a deposit for tattoos in April. Oh and I should buy those tickets to the PostSecret event in Charlotte for April 22nd (PS, anyone wanna go with me?). Oh yeah, and I should find a range in W.NC to test out some guns since I think I'm going to buy one. (Did anyone else just catch all the redneck in that? Tattoos and guns. /facepalm).
TRES - Dear DD-214,
You're coming. I know it. It's an extremely scary, extremely exciting thing. On the one hand I feel like I'm giving up a good thing. On the other hand, I know that I can do better. Writing a resume is the scariest thing I've ever done. I think no one in the Navy tells you to keep an up to date resume because that's how they get you to stay in. It's not the benefits, no no. It's the crippling fear of cover letter and resume writing that scares people into staying in.
I think most of the fright is of the unknown. Where will I work, what job will I do, where will I live? Not being able to plan for those answers at this point is difficult for me because I'm a planner, dammit. (Please see this for proof).
QUATRO - Dear Gentle Readers,
I'm not sure how many of you actually go to Teh Blog page to read my posts or if you use a feed reader or what have you (I don't judge. I defintely use a feed reader that sometimes interferes with layouts, etc, so rarely do I visit actual blog sites), but I think I've finally figured out the design I like. It only took months. Having a dark background with colors and words and all the things becomes a difficult battle. I was almost ready to hire someone to do a design overhaul since I was struggling. I mean, Teh Blog is obviously not professionally done. I don't have little hearts or birds or chevrons or special fonts for the text or headers. But, I did it all by myself and its got squigglies! I LOVE squigglies.
CINCO - Dear Saturday,
I'm so looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow. I really just hope Meri lets me sleep until at least 0630. We'll see. Last Saturday we slept until 7! Hopefully I can get a walk in with the pups this afternoon, which will only help my cause. If I'm a super slave driver, I'll make it a run and all the puppies will be so exhausted!
-Clean the house! The dogs keep tracking in mud (or that's what I'm saying it is) and the bathrooms are.. bathrooms. The floor needs to be steam mopped (thank you Meri) and the rug could really use a cleaning (again, thank you Meri).
-Pick up poop. I hate this job more than cleaning bathrooms.
-Cook next week's lunch/dinners.
-Potentially head up to Annapolis to hit up the PA Dutch Market to get some coconut oil and delicious meats and whatever else I think of.
Linking up with these ladies since it's FRRRIIIIIDAY:
