Whatever Weekend – Ground Control To Major Tom

“Here am I sitting in a tin can/far above the world.”

I’ve been so spaced out today! It could be because Tom and I stayed up late watching youtube videos after a very fun date night of Chinese food, frozen yogurt, and “Bones.” My whole schedule has been off this week, anyway.

Tom did cook breakfast this morning, though, and I was happy he woke me up for it:

French toast on sesame seed bread with bananas and honey.

Then I cleaned part of the apartment today, because, you know, I live on the edge! The desire to decorate is great. Must … resist … online … shopping.

Mom’s broken toe still hurts very much. I went to the grocery store for her (and us) today, went to the post office for her and took the dog out. Hopefully, she’s sleeping the pain away right now. She’s either doing that, or watching “Ghost Hunters.” I definitely get my love for scares from you, Mom. I’m watching “Celebrity Ghost Stories.”

I got to talk to my two best girlfriends today, and will probably spend time with one today, and the other next week. I’ve had a bleak social life since we started interning (I think that’s a verb,) so it’ll be nice to have some girl time. Also, since Spring Break has started, Tom and I will have more free time … even though his will be used for catching up on studying. I can’t say I envy him. For those of you interested in seeing the place I’ve been rambling on about for the past few months, here’s the Tri C:

The entrance to Freebucks, our coffee shop.

 We’re working on getting a website made, but in the meantime, we have a Facebook page. If you’re a UT Arlington student, stop by and visit us! We’re open 7:30 a – 10:30 p M-F, and there’s always free coffee, tea, and food. Look for us across from the UC on the North side.

I think that about covers the whatevers of the day. I hope all of you have a great weekend, and a safe and happy Spring break!

Thoughtful Thursdays – Life Is Full Of Broken Toes

Get Well Soon Wool Felted Bird by woolville

Poor Mom. Within the past few months, she’s had more injuries (almost) than she’s had in her entire life. The latest and greatest is a broken toe. It’s forced her to sit, rest, and let others do for her. Again. I’m pretty sure she’s sick and tired of depending on others.

I can definitely empathize. We come from a family of strong, independent, and, dare I say, stubborn women. Health problems have knocked me to my knees, and I’ve still said “oh no, I’m fine, thank you.” I guess health problems have to take it up a notch and knock me on my butt instead.  I’m slowly learning that lesson. For me, it’s taken a chronic pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, to teach me to ask for help (among other things.)

So, what’s your broken toe? At what point do you finally have to break down and ask for or accept help?

Share the Love,
