Ever have one of those days where no matter what you do, you feel like you could be a whole lot better if you could just take a five minute nap? I'm having one of those days.

I may or may not have gotten in a fight with my boss, but I was totally right. Oh, well. I'm leaving that job this week anyway. I cannot keep working 55 hours a week and make less than $200. I just can't.

It absolutely amazes me how much time can go by with me saying "I'll post soon." Then, a month goes by.

A few weeks ago, I purchased a discount bottle of wine from Harris Teeter for $1.80. It tastes worse. I think my tongue might burn off, but so do hard times call for.

And the cute firefighter down the street has a girlfriend. They have a dog together. All my dreams are now smashed.

Do you?

Do you have a spare $24,000, then here's what you should buy me:

I saw it at the art walk last Friday and fell in love with it! It reminds me of my favorite book, Tipping the Velvet. Anyways, if you have that kind of cash and want to get me something, then let me know, and I'll tell you which gallery to go to!

Oh, and - how have I not mentioned that my Brother and his wife are expecting their first baby! Congrats David and Lauren!

Finally, the next movie as well.

Good Day

Just noticed that my last post was my 50th post on this blog! Go me and thanks all of you for reading!

I've had a great few days that I would like to share! Friday night, Melissa, Katie, and I went on a free tour of art galleries downtown where we got to see lots of cool art and drink lots of free wine. Then, we went on a ghost tour downtown. Pretty cool day.

Saturday, Katie and I painted. She now has a red dining room and a "cup of coco" hallway and kitchen. We did some touchups today and still have a lot more to do, but it's been fun working on it. She also got a neutral green for the living room but we haven't gotten there yet.

Sunday, I went to church then had a pretty good, busy shift at work - the most I've made in any shift so far.

Today, I got a volunteer job at a law firm! Yay! I was searching admiralty firms here, and came across one that had a lawyer working there with the same name as a guy that was sorta in my same circle of friends at Bishop England. His name was Dawes Cooke, and this lawyer is his dad, I think, at least one's a junior and one's a III. Anyway, I sent him an email and I start volunteering this week - probably Friday since I work the morning shifts every day but tomorrow, which is too soon to start. The lawfirm is Barnwell Whaley Patterson and Helms and their office is on Daniel Island where we used to live. Here is their website:
Wish me luck!

Also today, I finally cashed in my mycokerewards! Here's what I got:

For free! Thanks to everyone who saved points for me to help me get them! I'll take pictures of you with me in them. I wonder what I'll save up for now???

Sun Burn

In case you weren't aware, I've been very adamant about weight loss and have dropped about 13 pounds in a month. I'm doing a pound a week now as my goal, but this week I've completely plateaued. I've continued with my diet and upped my exercise routines, but haven't lost anything yet this week and I do my weigh ins on Fridays. So I hope I can drop at least one pound by then.

Today, after work at Ali Baba's, Katie, Melissa, and I met and walked the Ravenell Bridge. It was harder than I thought it would be and I'm definitely a little sore. Then, Katie and I hit up the pool then Sonic for FREE Root Beer Floats. I'm excited to sleep in tomorrow, but I still have stuff to do.

When I started this post, I had ambitions to do a movie, but then I saw which movie it was and just wasn't feeling it tonight. It's a good movie and I want it's review to do it justice. So you're just going to have to wait in anticipation!
