my weekend

I was thinking I was going to have a nice, relaxing weekend (a 3-dayer), but, alas, that is not to be. I have pet-sitting all weekend (only 1 job, so not terrible), and dinner plans every night. Saturday we are going out with Jason and Gail (they might sleep over) and Sunday it's Barbara and David. So much for rest and relaxation. I feel like we have just been zooming around. I just want to sleep the entire 3 days. Oh well. It could be fun.

I might go check out some Memorial Day sales around. I have been selling so much stuff onEbay I have nothing left to wear.

I will be sending out my resume this weekend too. I think to 2 places. We shall see what comes of that.

Terror Alert

So, my theory on the new terror alert is that this is all part of Bush's plan. He is going to see how this announcement of new possible terrorist activity helps his ratings, and if they go up, then we will raise the terror alert. What is it, orange? I mean, who would want to change their leadership right in the middle of a terror watch? You don't want a newbie at the helm during all of this, do you??

The good news is that I sent T. the Post article about Matthew Scully, and he sent it to a co-worker (I don't know why). This co-worker (J.) wants to read Scully's book now! So I gave him my paperback copy. I think he is intrigued by Matthew being an animal activist, YET he is Republican AND religious. How can that be??? So. That's good. Maybe he will become enlightened.

Tonight we are going to see guitar legend Dick Dale (again). He really puts on a good show.

Storm

So T. and I decided to go for our nightly walk a little earlier than normal tonight, since it's supposed to storm. So we get about 1/4 way through our normal route and it starts sprinkling. So I start walking as fast as I can, trying to beat the thing. We had to abort our plan- it was really thundering and lightening. I think I got a better than normal workout from all the hard walking. And we only got a little wet.

Barbara cancelled on me for dinner tonight. Her strep has turned into bronchitis. We rescheduled for next week.

I think I am going to change the sheets/duvet cover on the spare bedroom bed, then get cozy in my bed and read my new InStyle and Marie Claire that arrived today.

career choices for me

So I need to decide what to do with my life. Am I considered middle-aged? I am 36. I majored in art-education in college, ran a restaurant for 8 years, and now I am the office manager at a non-profit. I am not happy. But I don't know exactly what will make me happy. I have started taking yoga classes, which I really love. Should I become a yoga teacher? I could make alot of money (maybe?) and get fit at the same time. I love to paint. Should I become a painter and starve? I like to write.... I need suggestions. I don't want to work weekends or nights, and I travel ALOT. I need career counseling. Discuss.
