orzo, spinach, & pine nut salad...

... has been one of the highlights of my evening. thank you, whole foods! other highlights include, but are not limited to:

*Jon taking me to nice price books and buying me a book.
*lightning & thunder
*reading
*the roots special on paladium

also, apparently one of my library books smells delicious to my kittens because both of them spent the better part of an hour sniffing at it and (don't tell the library) drooling ever so slightly on the first page. to me it just smells like a normal library book, but i can't say that i blame them. i mean, i want to move in to the library. i'd be happy if they just let me sleep on the floor. (well - only if they let me have a blanket - it gets cold in there! a pillow would be nice also.) so yeah, i guess if it was socially acceptable to drool on books it would probably be my favorite activity.

jon says no to moving in to the library so scratch that whole idea. it'd be too boring without him there anyway.

friday night... no plans...

it's 19:20 on friday evening and jon and i don't know what to do tonight. many people we know are going to the durham bulls game, but it looks a little thunderstormy out there in my professional meteorological opinion. i think it would be better if we go tomorrow.

so that leaves us at nothing planned for tonight. i'm stingy and i don't want to spend money to do anything... but i do kind of want to go to whole foods or trader joe's.

this is a boring post - but i'm trying to post more regularly so boring will have to suffice!

insomnia sucks

i woke up at 2:37 this morning for no good reason. my right foot was sticking out from under the covers and it was icy cold. i put on my wonderful smart wool socks (one of the best christmas presents ever - given to me by my wonderful brother in law, matthew) hoping for a swift return to my pleasant slumber. alas, it was not to be. my left foot was soon nice and warm. my right foot stubbornly remained cold as ice. this has been a problem for me for the last 3 months. though warm to the touch, my right foot refuses to get warm, and it causes me to lose a lot of sleep. it seems that it must be a problem of poor circulation. i have very low blood pressure on average, and i am self-diagnosing the problem of poor circulation.

sometimes if i wear 2 socks on my right foot to bed it helps, but not always.

has anyone experienced this before?

well, after lying in bed wide awake for 2 hours, i decided to try to fall alseep on the couch, lest i keep my sweet husband awake with my tossing and turning. finally at about 5:30 i fell back asleep, but by then i only had a couple of hours of restless sleep to get. i really could've used a good rest too, because today was one of the busiest days i've ever had at work. i say that a lot, but just when i think it couldn't get any busier it totally does. i'm always learning new and interesting things, but i have to work fast and i fear for the quality of my work. we are currently on "slump plan" which means trying to fit 9 hours worth of work into 7 tiny hours. it's tough. i find that at the end of the day i leave work praying that God will bless my efforts to do a good job. i know that i'm not perfect and that it's ok to make mistakes. in fact, i think it's good to make the occasional mistake so that you can learn from it. but i also know that i work non-stop from the time i step in the office until the time that i leave, and when it's time to go home i have to ask God to help me leave my worries about mistakes and problems at the office and to just pray that He will just take care of the things that i can't.
