Blizzard Watch

I got a box of presents yesterday for my birthday which of course I promptly opened. This lead to a quick morning mini-mani so I could test out the colors.


This got a lot of comments and compliments at work. And it brightened my, otherwise non-eventful, Friday. I wore my snow boots in preparation for the storm that didn’t really start to happen until after I got home from work.

In other news this week- I finally hired someone for my department. Yay!!! I’m really looking forward to when he starts (end of month.) Gavin got back massive amount of film from our trip to Costa Rica and other things.


Also, this may be actually last week’s news but, I finally filed the patent for my project. Feels good to finally get it out since it has been sitting on the desk for about 6 months. After reading the documents countless times over, I solidified my intentions on never ever becoming a lawyer. Fingers crossed that it goes through without any issue. (Now I can work on it in peace.)

Weekend Wrap-Up

On Saturday, I finally went to the post office to pick up my package Asos. I really like shopping for clothes online but I have to remember to send them to work instead because our USPS folks sometimes can’t get in the building.

In the afternoon, I went for a haircut and Gavin took Milo to the vet. Milo is fine. Really. I won’t go into detail but it was clear there was something wrong. But has medicine now and it way better than he was several days ago.


On Sunday, we hosted a Super Bowl party in our apartment. Gavin’s friends Pete and Suzie came over, along with their friends (whom we’ve met before) and two new friends (we hadn’t met.) Janice came over, too, with a delicious home-made 7-layer cheese dip.


Everyone brought some kind of food and/or drinks. Gavin made lasagna. Oh, and Evie got ice cream and cookies for everyone. It was the typical “American eating holiday” (which makes this the perfect week for a juice cleanse!)
