7 Quick Takes # 46


Last Saturday night/Sunday morning was a time I don't ever want to repeat. I'm not going to go into detail because it isn't my story to share but suffice it to say, I think I lost several years off my life.

School will be starting in just over 3 weeks. We are completely unprepared and have not yet shopped for clothes or supplies. I have a plan to do it but haven't been able to yet.

I went to bed at 7:30 last night and slept until 10:30 this morning. I think I may have needed the sleep something fierce. I normally stay up late on my nights off and go to bed when I would have like if I had worked but last night, I was just exhausted by 7. 

I'm thinking about cutting my hair again. Chris had asked me to let it grow out and I tried (I haven't cut my hair in almost 12 weeks!) but it's starting to annoy me. And I don't like being annoyed.

I'm working my through Brittany Gibbon's book while I am at work. It takes me awhile to read when I only read a book at work because it's usually busy. I'm not a fan girl about the book but it is really good and I am was pleasantly surprised to see that it's not just a collection of blog entries. Her blog can be hilarious but I was really glad to see that her book isn't like a lot of blogger books. It's refreshing. And there are points in which, so far, I have cried.

We've been talking to Elizabeth about cooking classes and the possibility of culinary school in the future. She's very good at creating dishes. I think she would enjoy taking some classes with a professional. She like the idea.

I have to work for the next 8 days in a row before another day off. Say a quick prayer for me that I don't lose my mind. ;-)
