Well, its been an interesting week for me. As many of you know, my boss has been away on a lovely Meditteranean Cruise since October 5 and doesn't return until October 30. This means that I have been working on my own at the office and seeing as quite a few of our projects are behind schedule, there hasn't been too much to do. So, I've only been working Thursdays and Fridays while she's away. I did pick up a few extra shifts at Chilliwack Decorating but this week, I only worked there on Monday. That meant I had Tuesday and Wednesday off. Two days off...IN A ROW!! I thought I was in heaven. Now don't get me wrong. I love my job, but life gets so busy with working all the time and trying to get stuff done in the evenings, that it doesn't leave much "me" time. When I was in high school, I really didn't see the need for "me" time--I was far more concerned with keeping up my "social butterfly" reputation and being in on all the action with my friends. But as I get older, I realize more and more, just how much I value time alone.
So yes, I very much enjoyed my days off. I did a little shopping with my sister on Tuesday and then spent Wednesday just doing a bit of grocery shopping (which I actually HATE most of the time...but we needed food), and then took the rest of the afternoon to do something that I am growing to love, but don't get much time for....painting. My friend Lauren actually was the one who convinced me to start painting and now I just love it. I find it so relaxing and its fun to let my imagination run free. Now I am definitely not a painting artist by any means, but it is still fun. Especially because I have always been into sketching and doing pencil drawings. Painting is a nice change from that.
And today, I technically had another day off. I only worked about 4 hours at the office this morning and since there was nothing else pressing, I decided to come home early. So in the way of work, I don't really feel that I have put a week in but alas, it is Friday and I am excited about that. Todd and Brianne are coming over for movie night tonight and I think we may go into Vancouver tomorrow. Weekend life is great!
Welp...I guess I don't really have anything else to report and I do need to go get some homework done before the "troops" arrive! So, have a great weekend everyone...enjoy the sunshine all you BC'ers...its supposed to be a hot one!
