On I'd Do Any One Thing For Love (But I Won't Do That)

@moreadventurous yes! I totally see it too. Every time I write it on my to-do list (Because I keep not doing it) I laugh.

On I'd Do Any One Thing For Love (But I Won't Do That)

I have 6 things on my to-do list ranging from "clean out those freaking vanity drawers already!" to "um, nuvaring was supposed to be like 4 days ago." Yesterday I finally scrubbed the bottom of my trash can which was a HUGE win so I really need to keep the momentum going.

On Time to Panic About Hazelnuts

everyone's comments are stressing me out! what's the beef with flavored coffee?! nutella is the ONLY THING that is getting me to eat stupid yogurt for my stupid broken digestion! I put a smidge in my strawberry chobani greek yogurt every morning and it makes life (yogurt) bearable.

On The Year We Saved $10K: Playing The Hands We're Dealt

Jennifer's story is making me feel like I am doing something horribly wrong. I make a bit more, live in Boston, have pretty cheap rent (now that I have a roommate), hardly EVER go to happy hour, and have no savings. Granted, maybe that will change in a few months once I'm into the swing of having a roommate but I definitely feel like I must be missing something. I'm anxious for the end of the month to come so I can see how things shake out first full month of having a roommate. (dear God please be worth it!)

@andnowlights sorry you're not feeling well! Which sewing blogs do you read? I didn't do any sewing this weekend even though I *knew* it would make me happier

On Monday Check-in

@andnowlights I'm hoping mine DOES grow super fast because I think I need it to be 1-2 inches longer. I might even start straightening it to get some length back for now @RiffRandell legit the worst. she and the BF broke up for maybe 12 hours, then she ditched her dog for the day to go to the beach but called to have me feed/walk the dog later. womp womp

On Monday Check-in

This weekend was not great. I think a lot of it is my own fault because I let things get to me that I shouldn’t and then I'm also irritated with myself for not being better at letting things go. Friday I got the haircut and it was wonderful. It’s a little shorter than I wanted, but since I apparently get it cut once a year I think in about 2 months it will be exactly where I want it. Her price went up a smidge, and I didn’t end up buying a product. I found out they don’t tip out the person that washes hair, is that normal? So I tipped the woman that cuts it and the guy that washed it, plus the cut, total: $105. I got there early so had the world’s worst gin and tonic at a place across the street $8 including tip. Other than that – cleaned 1 drawer, baked banana bread, read 5 magazines (I have an enormous pile I’m working through for recycling), finally put away my laundry, and was, in general, in a shitty mood all weekend. (My roommate had a meltdown Friday night and sort of hijacked my weekend with her drama). Total spent: $113.

On Chatting About Date Night

So I totally get the doctor phone thing, I used to work in a doctors office and my job was to answer the phone. We had two different systems that we would need to use, and it depended on why the person was calling - reschedule their appointment/make an appointment/start a referral/confirm their appointment/change your address, system A. wanna talk to a nurse/leave a message for your doctor/refill a prescription/might have something semi-urgent? system B. and it was way more annoying to input the info into system A only to find out they really needed system B because the two didn't talk so I'd have to re-enter everything anyway. I think that might be fairly common in some doctors offices, depending? Either way - definitely don't feel terrible about it! I would get between 100 and 130 calls a day (very busy office!) and the people who chatted away weren't the terrible ones that pissed me off. The angry strangers that called me a b*tch or a c**t were. You're doing just fine! :)

On Friday Estimate

@ATF I've been keeping an eye out in case I hear of anything, ugh I'm so sorry this isn't working out right now. Sending thoughts your way, their way, and to the precocious housing Gods in Boston.
