1 day until my dog’s birthday
18 days until my pap smear
19 days until my birthday
49 days until my DC Getaway
I’m so excited about the Getaway! I’m not excited about people finding out where I am and being disappointed that I didn’t invite them. Blah. On my dog’s birthday I have to work, but afterward, I’m planning on taking him to the river park. I have lived here for years and never really explored that area. I asked my dog where he wanted to go and he said, “the river”! 😉 My mom might come with us. I was excited to invite her, and now I’m kind of regretting it. She’s scared of water and bridges, so the river probably isn’t an ideal place for her to go. Ya think?
Unfortunately, I’m not that familiar with that part of the river. The local people said it’s like a beach and good for dogs, so I want to try it. It’s a huge place. People come from out of town to visit that area, and I figure I should get familiar with it since I live here. I just hope there aren’t too many people there. Especially too many people with dogs. My dog will go crazy the whole time, and it won’t be enjoyable.
Update: My mom is definitely coming with us tomorrow. I hope there aren’t too many hills, water, and bridges. Those are the things she is scared of or doesn’t like. I guess I should clarify that she doesn’t like some bodies of water. She doesn’t mind the beach as long as she’s not too close to the water. I LOVE water. Anyhow, if it isn’t a good place for my mom, I will just go back there later this spring/summer without her.
I made a mistake. I requested a tarot reading from someone in my advanced tarot class! I know that doesn’t seem like a big deal to most. But I hate intimacy. I would never go to the same coffee shop or any store every day. Yes, even that is too intimate. Someone in another tarot Facebook group posted that she would do FREE readings for the first 3 respondents. I made it in. I recognized her face from some Facebook group so I should have put those two things together. But I didn’t.
Now I feel awkward because we are going to be in class together ON CAMERA. So I can’t ask about my job during the class because I already asked about my job to her. That would be uncomfortable. Now I have to come up with more questions. I do have a question about where I will be living in a year. But I don’t have any other questions I want to know the answer to. It’s funny because she recognized me when I responded and I never post in either group. ARGH.
Am I the only one still eating romaine lettuce? Well, I was until it ruined. I bought a big bag of romaine lettuce for my homemade chicken salads I eat during lunch. I probably won’t buy any more (if any store is still selling it). I might do without salads for a few weeks, or I might eat a different kind of lettuce. After I heard yesterday that people were suffering kidney damage from consuming romaine lettuce, I don’t think I want to touch it.
This week I…

Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren
Plans for the Weekend: It’s my dog’s birthday. He turns 4! I didn’t buy him anything (bad mom), so that’s why I’m taking him to the river. First I have to work overtime, and then we are heading out. On Sunday, I’m going grocery shopping. I wanted to take him out to eat on Sunday. Well, he wouldn’t be eating. But I found a restaurant that allows dogs on the patio, and I want to go there. I just don’t trust my dog will behave. I think he would be jumping up trying to steal my food the whole time. Plus, he would probably bark if another dog is out there on the patio.
Thanks for reading! Have a delightful weekend. 🙂
