If we were having coffee, I’d apologize for my tardy arrival to the table. It’s been a busy and tiring weekend, folks!
If we were having coffee, I’d first point out the new theme on my blog. I realized the other day how unbelievably bored I was of my old theme. So, a new theme was in order. It’s still a work in progress. To be honest, I’m not sure how much I like it at the moment, though I do like that it’s different. The header still needs to be adjusted, as it doesn’t show up completely in mobile form…and, overall, I just feel kind of “ehh” about it right now. I really do like The Plane Theme and I love the colors…this damn header is just not quite right yet, though If you have any comments or suggestions for me regarding this dilemma, I’d love to hear them!
Speaking of blogging…if we were having coffee, I’d talk about how dismal I’ve been at keeping up with blogging lately. I have absolutely no idea what’s going on the blogosphere. I haven’t gotten back to comments on my blog in three days and I haven’t really scrolled through my reader at all since like Wednesday? I don’t even remember, honestly. It’s not that I don’t care…I do miss all of you. Life gets busy, though…and when I’m not working, I’d rather spend my time outside enjoying the summer weather than sitting indoors staring at a screen. So, yes I’ve been MIA here…but such is life sometimes.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you all about how I’ve gotten to spend some real quality time with friends lately. One of my high school friends, who’s been in Denmark for the past year and who will go back in a couple weeks to Au Pair for another year, is back visiting the States for a few weeks. I had the chance to see her a couple times this week and it was her birthday on Friday…when I got off work at 7 on Friday night, I headed over to her house for her birthday party. I got to see a lot of old high school friends and we had a really nice time. It was fantastic, especially since I had had a bit of a stressful day at work. I really didn’t think I’d have such fun with this group since I haven’t seem them in so long. I honestly thought I’d grown too far a part from them by this point–but it was a great night and I’m really glad I went.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about how one of my best friends from college recently got a big kid job (which happens to be like, ten minutes from my place of employment) and moved into an apartment (which also happens to be like, ten minutes from my place of employment), and how we’ve been hanging out a lot recently given how close he is to me in general. Last night, we got together and, with the help of a recipe provided by one of my coworkers, made noodles from scratch. COMPLETELY FROM SCRATCH. We were a little worried they wouldn’t turn out because, well, neither of us are known for our cooking talents…but they actually turned out so yummy. A little funny shaped and a little thick for noodles…but hey, it was our first time making them and we had a good time.
I’d also tell you about how I found the beer of my dreams yesterday while at the liquor store…
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how work has been keeping me busy and how my weekend is tomorrow and Tuesday…I’m looking forward to having my two days off after a long and tiring week of work. My feet are continuously achy and the number of oven burns I’ve acquired since I started working as an espresso bar barista are too numerous to mention. Baking cookies is a dangerous mission, I tell you!
Lastly, I LEAVE FOR THAILAND IN 9 WEEKS, WHAT? Please don’t mind me as I hyperventilate just a touch.
If we were having coffee, I’d be about ready to end my turn talking and I’d pass it over to you…what do you have to share over coffee this week?
