Hello, loves! I had planned to post last night – but my utter exhaustion caught up with me and after I stuffed my face I simply crashed. Exciting, I know. haha
Let’s start with Friday, k? K.
After class/lab the night before (and once again getting stuck in the middle of the Lakers’ police escort to the Garden – so happy the Celtics pulled off a win), the 6 hours of sleep *maybe* that I got before heading to work was not enough.
Therefore, coffee was extremely necessary.
I dressed myself -for possibly the best day out of the next 4- and skipped breakfast in favor of fruit and a muffin during our morning meeting.
My day started off with seeing a dog get *technically* hit by a car at the corner of Dartmouth and Beacon. My heart literally leaped into my throat. Luckily, it was more of a “the dog ran into the drivers side door of the car” thing, and he was absolutely okay.
I felt so bad for his owner who was running after him screaming…the dog must have just made a break for it from the house. Luckily – the dog was absolutely fine. I felt bad for the driver; I can’t imaging the horror of thinking you’d hurt/killed an animal. He was so nice and stopped to make sure the dog was okay. Plus, the Boston police officers who were working up the street, and had seen the guy running after his dog, were nice enough to come down and check on everything, too.
The scare aside, the rest of my day was great. We had a long morning meeting, we got sweet mugs – you know I’m a sucker for a good mug- (see Greg, they are still utilizing your ideas!), and then in the afternoon we got a free ice cream sundae bar! haha Yes, I work at a bank.
I got cookie dough ice cream, with strawberry sauce, mini-Reeses Pieces, mini-Snow Caps, whipped cream and sprinkles. Whether you’re 20 or 60, a secretary or an executive – everyone is a kid when there’s free ice cream. You should have seen the line. haha
Oh, and yes – I did eat a real lunch, too. haha Herby turkey again.
After work, I went out for a few drinks with some of the people I work with. It was great to get to know everyone outside of work.
Once, I was home though exhaustion hit (I think I probably looked like a zombie) – and so did the carb cravings. Seriously, I think my body was like “You’ve run yourself ragged, you need carbs!” I happily obliged. Everything Pretzel Thins from TJ’s and a bbq chicken pizza!
I was tired. I slept for 12 hours. haha When I woke up a set to work cleaning the apartment which was a mess due to the fact that I’d had to empty the under the counter/sink cabinets for routine extermination checks (no rodents up in here! haha).
Also, a soft serve ice cream truck sat outside my building for an hour. I’d never seen a soft serve truck before…like real, legit ice cream… I resisted but it was cute seeing ALL of the little kids and their parents swarm it! haha If he comes back next Saturday I will definitely get some though.
I’ve just been grazing and enjoying the relaxed pace of today. I think I’m going out to dinner tonight – but we’ll see.
I hope you all are wonderful!!
