I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by. I feel like each month goes by just a little faster than the one before. I am so excited to have fall here though; now if only North Carolina temperatures would get on board with that.
For starters, my weekend was awesome because it was the first pay check in two and a half months. Here's a side
rant note. So many people think teachers get paid in the summers when they aren't working. I think that's cute. If I got paid for the 8 weeks I was off, I would never complain. However, I am a 10 month employ, which means I'm unemployed for 2 months in the summer. I'm not complaining, but I also wanted to clarify. I digress. The first thing I did when I got off work was high tail it to Ulta to pick up some much needed beauty products. I'll do a post on these later.
I asked DG to pick up take out on his way home because I didn't want to put on real clothes after coming home and putting on sweat pants.
(sold out, but some other great ones) little number arrived. I borrowed this picture from Sunsets & Stilettos.
Saturday night, DG decided he wanted to go to Aviator. He really just wanted the fried mac & cheese bites and BBQ. It wasn't the best we had, but that's okay.
East Carolina played Saturday night. DG and I don't have cable, so I was ecstatic when the game was televised at Aviator. That redeemed the food being decent and not stellar!
I have a hard time sleeping in once I start getting into a routine, so I was wide awake at 6:30AM. DG can sleep... a lot. I've actually never seen anything like it. So, he woke up at 11:00 and wanted breakfast. We settled on Bagels Plus
because they have lunch food too. So, I got a chicken cheese steak and he got a bagel sandwich.
We spent an obsene amount of time and money at Home Depot after that because our exterior doors need replacing. This isn't something I'm excited about; it's sort of like getting new tires. It's a lot of money, but not for anything appealing.
Sunday afternoon, we went to Durham for a cookout. Our friends Mary & Mike just built a house and we were so excited to see it. I was also happy to see our buddy Crystal.
Monday, I did more house work, school work, and squeezed in some pool time with my friend Amy.
I really love 4 day weeks. Who can we petition for this to become a thing?
Now it's your turn! Tell us how your holiday weekend was!
