While I think my parents were hoping I'd visit, I don't think I could have spent my weekend in a more productive way. (Sidenote: I'll see my family this weekend anyways!) It rained almost every day, but I managed to work from home Friday, accomplish a zillion errands (pharmacy, post office, groceries, Goodwill, etc.), and even get some homework in. I also did some leisurely wandering in Franklin for fun. Duke worked much of the weekend, so I think the solo time was good for me.
|Obviously, there were lapses in productivity, like when I created this photo.|
I also spent my Sunday in a Type A whirlwind cleaning. The trunk of my car is neat, the apartment is neat (minus my nightstand and pantry), and I totally reorganized the guestroom. I also read an entire book (Superfreakonomics) for fun. And it was free, because libraries rule.

I went from thinking about a Walmart bike to test riding better machines at local bike shops (as mentioned in a previous post). This weekend, we decided to commit and buy a trunk rack for my car, to hold these hypothetical bikes. My hope is that my bike is assembled this week, tests well, and is in my possession SOON. We're already talking about riding to the
Oh, and check out my "Monday" outfit... cleaning out my closet made me realize I needed to wear some pieces more often (like my shoes) or else add them to the Poshmark or Goodwill piles. So I decided to get all fancy like a

I may have bought three dresses there last month. But it doesn't count because they were like $50 total. Plus my lunch only cost $1.50 because that's how much the best hot dogs ever cost plus a drink. Add an extra dollar if you're counting a cinnamon sugar soft pretzel. Because I maybe got that too.
Peace! I'm wearing jeans today.
Don't forget about my magazine subscription giveaway ending tomorrow!!!
