This week is week #4 of the new job in the city. And with week #4 comes a certain level of routine and familiarity. In other words I'm ready to recommit to the blogging world and my first order of business is to link up with Meg @ Life of Meg for Mingle Monday.
Friday Roomie #1 left for the weekend to judge a figure skating competition and Roomie #2 was off to a Girls' Night with her classmates so I had the place to myself. I celebrated by taking a long, hot shower , getting into my PJs and being asleep by 11.
Saturday I slept in until 9 and then had a productive morning of laundry & grocery shopping. Saturday was "100 Days Until Camp Day!"So H. and I decided to mark the occasion Saturday night. We made three different kinds of s'mores and watched Camp Takota .
I highly recommend s'mores made with Dairy Milk Sweet & Salty Peanut Bars. They were extra delicious!
I have pretty high standards when it comes to camp movies. They usually fall into one of two categories: Totally Over The Top And Ridiculous (Wet Hot American Summer) or Questionable But Sweet (Camp Nowhere). Camp Takota struck a really good balance of capturing the uniqueness and sacredness of camp friendships but also including some silly moments and a few plot holes noticeable to those of us in full time camping.
I've never had allergies before but the last few days and especially Saturday & Sunday I have been so sneezy and stuffed up, I don't feel the slightest bit sick, it's the weirdest thing. I ventured out Sunday to get some sinus medication but that doesn't seem to be helping in any great way. I have no idea what could be causing it since I haven't changed any soaps or detergents, there aren't any pets around, February is certainly not a season for pollen, the apartment isn't dusty...seriously the strangest thing.
The rest of my Sunday was spent reading Why We Broke Up. It's been a long time since I finished a book and knew immediately I'd read it again and it would remain a permanent addition on my bookshelf. I love sad books and this one made my heart hurt in all the best ways. It's definitely not for everyone though, it's written in a very poetic-prose type way that would drive some people crazy.
