My weekend starts today…at 4:45 pm when I get off work. How fun is that? And I get to go home…well, not exactly. I’ll be little in the city (as we always call it), but close enough. I can’t wait. We all know how much I love California. I can taste Caspers already. I don’t know how I’m going to fit everything in (and by everything, I mean all of my favorite shopping and food stops), what with being my sister’s “slave” and attending this singles thing. I’m a little nervous about the latter, but I’m going to do my best to have a good time…in any case, I’m sure I will have some good stories, and I get to take a cruise on the bay, which I have never done before. I must admit I’m feeling some pressure, since I received an email from my sister telling me that she fully expected me to find my husband at this thing, which would be most inconvenient since I have sworn not to get married until I’m done with grad school. Although, I guess I could meet him. I don’t have to get married. Oh, the things that living in P-town is doing to my brain!
Wish me luck!
Oh, one more thing. I went shopping last night (you know, because I’m made of money and thought it would be a good idea…actually, I was stressed out and retail therapy is my family’s drug of choice when it comes to mental health, since it costs about the same as regualr therapy, but you get to come home with clothes/electronics/cosmetics/toys, rather than puffy eyes). I started at the GAP because I needed jeans (yes, needed). I had the a salesperson help me and grabbed a bunch of different styles in my size. I ended up getting a fabulous pair of long and lean jeans. The best part was when I put on the jeans the first time and came out to look in the big mirror, both of the employees standing there said, in unison, “You need a smaller size.” It was fabulous. So I grabbed the smaller size, tried them on and decided to go for it. I’m not sure how I’m feeling about wearing jeans that “fit”, since I’m kind of a fan of loose and baggy, but when I showed them to Sarah later, she said that they looked good (and I don’t think she’d lie to me). Woohoo!
