Usually on my birthday I take the day off and just relax. But events seemed to be against me today.
First I had an 8:25am doctors appointment. Second I had to drop by work to pick up new teachers additions, only to find one of the books wasn't in my box. So I spent about a half hour tracking down who had the books and waiting for a break between classes. On the plus side I picked up yet another class for fall (yeah for randomly bumping into administration in the hall when there is a crisis in staffing)l so now I'm teaching 7 classes .... yet some how still considered part time. Thirdly I had forgotten to pay my tag fees, so I got to stand online at the county court house for an hour, ...grrrrr. Then I had to swing by the bank to deposit a check and inquire about a problem with my savings account. Apparently since I normally bank online the bankers couldn't really help me so then I was stuck there for about an hour and a half while the banker called the online service and worked it out. (It was however carthedic to know that even bank employees are put on hold for well over 30mins when calling the 1-800 number)
By then lunch time had basically passed so I zipped by Subway to fill the void. After lunch I decided that what I really wanted to do today was get my hair trimmed. I know it doesn't sound like much, but my hair is past my waist and I only get it trimmed about once a year. Plus I have naturally wavey hair, and in this humidy it means that if I leave it down it's about two feet wide once I step outside. So I wanted it straight for my dinner date tonight, a feat that I just can't make happen at home no matter how I try. So that took up almost two hours.
After I got my hair done I looked over at the text books I had picked up and realized I haven't really gotten any new cloths for work in a long time. So I hopped over to the goodwill. After spending about two and a half hours shopping I ended up with three skirts, four blouses, three pairs of shoes, two dresses, one T, and one belt for all under $55. Not too bad.
I ended my day with a trip to the optometrist only to be told they didn't have anymore opening for walk-ins today, so I ended up making an appointment for next week instead.
So that's my day so far. Like I said busy busy. But I fell like I accomplished alot. ^^ Now I just have to wait for John to get home so he can take me out for my birthday dinner. ... I'm so making him take me for Chinese.
