Success! And then some...

I didn't find flats I was interested in at Target, but I did find these:

I fell in love with them at DSW, and while they were slightly out of my self-imposed price range, I splurged a bit. I wore them tonight...let's hope they dry out well, because right now they're positively dripping. I hate rain. Thank God moving to Seattle is off the table.

I did find this at Target, which I also wore tonight. I was wearing a short-sleeved shirt, so this was absolutely perfect for this evening--a traditional wrap would have been far too dressy, but I needed something to keep myself warm.

I love this thing. I don't know how I lived without it. I actually bought two, one in grey and one in black, because I didn't know which would go better with my outfit. I was intending to return the black one, but I don't think I can resist keeping it. We may have figured out where all of my money goes...

I have better things to do than spend my afternoon waiting in line.

I wonder how much of our lives we spend waiting in the bank's drive-thru lane. I'm on about 15 minutes right now, and I'm still third in line. Don't these people know I have things to do? I need to run by Target (love that store!) to look for a pair of black flats--I'm broke but I desperately need new shoes. As an aside, can I just note how much I love the fact that broke these days means something completely different than it did five years ago? Having money that it is not prudent to spend is a million times better than legitimately not having the money at all.

But I digress. I've scrubbed the idea of going to the grocery store, but I'm bound and determined to go to the gym today. And I need to pick up my drycleaning, shower and be in DC to meet K. by 7.

Perhaps the bank needs to get a move on.

Spring Break Randomness

On Spring Break...
Thank God it's here. I don't think I could have handled another week at work...this is perfect for letting me recharge my batteries and make it through the end of the year. This year has been absolutely brutal.

On television obsessions...
I watched six hours of Chuck last night, and another hour this morning. I love DVDs and online TV. Who wants to wait a week for a new episode? OD on it all at once.

On working out...
I seem to have turned over a new leaf all of a sudden. Today marks the third day in a row I've been to the gym, and the fifth day in a row I've gotten serious premeditated exercise. Let's see if I can keep it up...I went clothes shopping yesterday and I was not happy.

On dinner...
I'm supposed to be in Annapolis in an hour and 15 minutes, and I have not yet showered from the gym. Perhaps I will be late.

Another bubble burst...

I've been reading a LOT lately, and much of it has centered on fiction set in England (or among English people) between about 1850 and 1920. I read the descriptions of the parties and such, and every once in awhile I think that it might have been fun to live back then.

Then I remember. I'm Irish. I would have been the parlormaid.
