Schfifty Five!

As I predicted, this weekend was a pretty good one!

Friday evening we spent just hanging out at home.  I did some major cleaning on Friday in anticipation of my brother and his girlfriend coming to stay with us.  They got here right around 10:30 PM but I could only stay up for a little while after that because I had to be up to get ready for work the next morning.

Work was insanity.  Pretty much from the minute I got there I was running all over the place for customers and trying to do put-aways when I had time (putting away clothes that customers tried on).  I felt like I was going crazy, I kept feeling like I was putting away the same things over and over again.  I was happy when it was finally time to leave!

Saturday night we hung out with Ryan and Jen at our place.  Ryan got beer and this huge bottle of wine so we got a movie, Get Him To the Greek, and watched that.  It was actually a pretty funny movie!  I'd heard bad reviews about it but I thought it was pretty funny.  Afterward we kind of watched Drag Me To Hell but eh... yeah.  Not so into that.  Then while watching Zoolander (it's our go to movie, it never ever gets old) I decided to look at old videos I used to think were hysterical on a website called eBaum's World.  If you've never been to eBaum's World it's pretty funny, especially if you've been drinking.  Here is one of my favorite videos.  Don't judge!


And yay for daylight savings!  Although I'm not thrilled about the days getting shorter and colder I love that extra hour of sleep!

Sunday was spent picking up my NaNoWriMo slack.  And that's what Sundays should be for, right?  I'm pushing myself harder than I ever have in NaNo and thus far it's paying off.  It's helps that I have you all to answer to if I start slacking off!

Anyway I have more NaNoing to do today as well as midterms this week.  Should be very interesting.  Happy Monday all!
