Well, this week was not my favorite. Work was very lousy for many reasons, and I was so relieved when 4:00 came around this afternoon. I was going to run a few errands after work, but Matt's train was canceled so I had to pick him up at another station and then drive him to his regular station to pick up his car.
Instead of going right home after that, I decided to cash in a free drink reward I've been saving at Dunkin' Donuts and go to Payless, because sometimes a girl needs a little retail therapy but happens to be on a tight budget. I also ran into the mall for something and felt like I was walking through the junior's department of JCPenney, circa 2001. Hello again platform sneakers, ribbed striped sweaters, and all manner of velour apparel. I've never stopped loving you.
We ditched our cooking plans and I picked up pizza on my way home, and now I'm sitting on the couch with a new candle, a glass of wine, watching We Are Marshall. College football was a big deal in our house growing up and I remember my dad telling us stories about the Thundering Herd. My parents bought the movie when it came out and my dad even has a Marshall sweatshirt. I cry every time I watch it, but I love it.
I was going to cut coupons while I watched but I decided to save that for tomorrow morning during College Gameday because I wouldn't want to get too wild on a Friday night. Plus, tomorrow Gameday is at Penn State, my alma mater, so I will be spending three hours on the couch watching TV and drinking coffee.
And cutting coupons.
I won't be able to watch the whole game because we are going to a Halloween party.
At Matt's boss' house.
As Fred and Wilma Flintstone.
We tried on our wigs tonight and I laughed so hard that I lost a contact lens.
And now that I write all of that out, I guess this week isn't so terrible after all.
Plus, we had an entire cloudless day. It was a big deal on the news because it hasn't happened here since February. There was legitimately not one cloud in the entire sky for the entire day.
Cloudless skies. Dunkin' Donuts. New shoes from Payless. A great football weekend. Pizza for dinner. A hilarious Halloween costume.
I've got nothing to complain about.
