Coffee Date

Oh hey, blog! I almost forgot what this is like since I've basically been MIA this week. I explained on Tuesday how my weekend kind of ran a little long because I was at a few different locations for work on Monday and didn't get home until late in the day. Then (as Nina liked to call it) blogpocalypse happened.... dun dun dun

Internet was down, no socializing on different forms of media, no internet radio - I almost felt like I was back in 2006, but at least in 2006 I didn't know what I was missing. You'd think with the internet down and no blogcabilities I would've gotten a lot of packing, cleaning, or organizing done - you would be wrong. Catching up on last week's episodes of my tv shows sounded a lot more fun. Thankfully I did (barely) survive the blogpocalypse and will never take Pandora for granted again. Now I'm thinking since it's been so long, we need to catch up a bit over coffee. Actually, we should just meet for a drink because it's Friday and, well, #yolo.

If we were having coffee I'd tell you... that I'm super excited for the wedding that we have this weekend because it means getting some of our best college friends back together again. Some of them I haven't even seen for years because they moved after graduation so I'm really looking forward to catching up - I feel so old when catching up with somebody means hearing about their houses, jobs, babies .... grown-up things. When did that happen? I swear just yesterday we were having drinks before heading to the homecoming football game.

If we were having coffee I'd tell you... I'm all for freedom in the USA, the right to vote, and being knowledgable about what you are voting for. But is it so much to ask for the debates to stay in their allotted 1-hour time frame and not make me miss the first 15 minutes of Law & Order SVU? I don't think so.

If we were having coffee I'd tell you... it's frustrating how some things are just out of our control. I mean, you can do your best and make the most of something, but there are some things for which we just need to have trust in God's plan. I know this and I understand this, but it's still frustrating.

If we were having coffee I'd tell you... after today I officially have 15 work days left here! 15 days, I can hardly believe it. It gives me a mix of emotions - happy, so happy because I can't wait to be back home in Fargo where Parker already is! Proud, because lots of things have happened in our past 2 years here and I'm proud of the things that have changed and how we've grown. And even a little sad, just because it's always a little sad when a time in your life comes to an end. 

If we were having coffee I'd tell you... my newest Thursday night ritual has become packing up some things and pre-loading the car before sitting down to watch some of my favorite shows. Wow, how old and boring do I sound?

If we were having coffee I'd tell you... thank you for all your tips last week on how to survive without a hair dryer. I mentioned that I left mine in Fargo the weekend before and didn't have one for an entire week. Since there were a few questions on how I dealt with this, I will share my tricks. I like to call it the lazy method: Shower, towel-dry, DO NOT COMB OR BRUSH, find your part, spray hairspray all over, scrunch hair and tousle with fingertips. Late in the day you can pull back into a ponytail if you feel like a wet dog. You're welcome. 

If we were having coffee I'd tell you... I'm thankful for your friendship and have a happy weekend! I'm off to shower so I have enough time to dry and straighten today :)
