This ‘N’ That

Today was a decent day.

I worked today from 12-4. Not a long shift by any means. We were fairly busy today too. Which was good. I hate when we are slow.

I think the best part of my work day was the pre-shift lunch. On the way to work Pat and I were discussing that we were both in the mood for Chipotles. I work about 4 stores down from one. So I asked Pat if he wanted to hang out at the store with me long enough to grab lunch. Well I was going to be a good 10 minutes early to work so I called to touch base and make sure I wasn’t walking into a ton of stuff and then we bought lunch before I even got to work and ate it in my lab. All in all I was about 10 minutes late clocking in, which is no big deal. I just took whatever lunch break i would have gotten at the beginning of my shift. And I was physically at work on time so if I had been needed I would have been there. But I wasn’t. So I got to relax and eat lunch with my husband.

After work we stopped home long enough for me to change my shirt and then we went to my mom’s house. My aunt Bunny and uncle Chuck are in town visiting and mom wanted us all to go to dinner. My sister’s finance went with us too. I was really proud of Pat. He hates visiting because his anxiety gets the best of him but he went with us anyways. We had a good dinner at a nice restaurant. Mom paid, which is always nice. We were celebrating as mom pointed out. There was me and Pat’s anniversary, Rachel and Joe’s engagement and Bunny and Chuck have their 50th anniversary coming up.

On a sappy note, I heard how Joe proposed to my sister. He is making her an engagement ring. And yes I meant he is physically making it himself. He explained the process to me but it went flying over my heard. It involves silver clay and firing it like you would pottery. I don’t know if a diamond is involved. Knowing my sister I’m not sure she’d want one. Oh, and he is designing her wedding gown. He won’t be the one actually sewing it, but the design is totally all him. He’s really kinda wow.

I’m registering for classes at midnight. I’m sticking with the register for 3 and drop what I need to drop before classes start, plan. It’ll make things kinda crazy but we’ll see. I think I’ll survive. The semester will pass before I know it. I’ll have to wait till the last minute to order my books though. That’s the part that has me kinda nervous.

That lens I’ve been blabbing about. You know the 50mm 1.8 that I dream about. My mom is totally buying me it for my birthday. Only I’ll be getting it a couple of months early so that I have it in time for a couple of events including the wedding. I’ll have to order it towards the end of July and who knows when it’ll come in though. Hopefully I’ll have it by September. I can always borrow Jesse’s if I need to. He has the same lens and set up that I have. I just don’t want to yank his primary lens. First off, he uses it. Second off, what if I drop it? Granted I’ll have my own on its way that I could just hand over if I drop his. But still. I don’t want to have to borrow his.

Anyway it’s 4 minutes til midnight. I need to start the class registration process so that I’m a few clicks away at midnight. Night everyone.
