Just Thursday

3 Mar

It’s Just Thursday again! If you want to link up, join in with Murdock’s Mama by clicking on the icon…

Outside my window.. it’s 81 degrees and sunny!
Today I feel.. productive, but a little frustrated because I’ve had a slight backache for 2 days!
I am thinking.. about creative new ways to write about hotels… it’s not going well haha.
I am thankful.. for Jorge. He’s incredibly motived and always supportive.
Tomorrow I am going.. to work, then the gym, then who knows what on Friday night?
I am wearing.. my work uniform.
I wish.. money fell from the sky… but then inflation would be ridiculous, so I take it back.
This weekend I.. am going out for lunch with one of my best friends who is PREGNANT! yay! Voy a ser tia!
I need to start.. doing more cardio exercise. I’ve lost 5 pounds already, only 25 more to go.
I am reading.. nothing! I just put down The Girl Who Played With Fire last night (incredible), and this weekend I need to go to a local English bookstore to see if they have the 3rd book in the series. If not, I’ll have to wait a few weeks for it to be shipped from Amazon.com.
I am working on.. making my own lunches for work. I’ve been doing pretty well, but I need to get a bit more creative than my usual yoghurt and sandwich. Today, for example, I brought scrambled eggs with veggies! Yum!
Yesterday I.. got my dog Dolly back from the groomer. She used to belong to my mother-in-law, so I think the groomer mixed things up and gave her the haircut my mother-in-law prefers, as opposed to what I usually ask for. The results were hilarious. She got legwarmers! Like any good pet owner, we will be pointing and laughing at her for weeks to come. (Sorry, Dolly.)
I am hoping.. to have a fun weekend!
I bet you didn’t know.. that I got a raise! Don’t congratulate me… they give all employees a raise at the beginning of the year. 3%! Yeah baby!
Something I’m looking forward to is.. our honeymoons! (yes, plural)

    Honeymoon or babymoon? Maybe that’s why your back hurts…? 😉

    Love the legwarmers!

    Oh no, lol, Dolly looks like a real poodle now! I would cry if our groomer made Monte look like an actual poodle.

      I know! Sometimes in the hot summer months it’s a bit unavoidable… but the legwarmers were just too much haha

      My favorite look is about 3/4 inch of fur, all even all around. No poofs.

    Congrats on the raise. Money is good to have and maybe your dreams of going back for real estate school is not so far off.

    Dolly’s legwarmers are great BTW. But I can’t imagine she needs them in the Cancun weather. haha..

    I’ve got to get that book on my library queue, which I think I told you about a month ago. I’m dying to read it and have been procrastinating. I’m intrigued by the multiple honeymoons. Can’t wait to hear about the big plans. And the leg warmers are hilarious.

    Snicker on the dog grooming. I am the groomer of this house. I wonder what your dog would look like if I had done it.
