You know, I think that I could get use to this not working two jobs. :)
Really, it didn't hit me until yesterday that I don't have Lowe's to go to anymore. The weekend felt just like, a weekend off from Lowe's. Friday night, my roommate, RN, and I went costume shopping. Well, apparently either the costumes got smaller when they shipped or they are still using the sizing from 20 years ago because a 10-14 which should fit me, well was way crazy tight. So, I became the plus-size girl costume. :) The Risky Ref.
Now Saturday, it is crazy amazing the things one can do without working at Lowe's and then just being tired from working all the time! My Lowe's Saturday usually consisted of me working 7 - 2 and then going home and taking a nap for an hour or two, then trying to cram everything else into the night.
Well, not this week. I managed to sleep in. Got up, took the Grey Speed Racer in to get the oil changed and washed. Of course, they also pointed out that I should have my brake fluid replaced since I had never had it done and it has 60,000 miles. So, I put up the dough for that. After that, I ran a few errands and then went and exchanged RN's shoes and found some shoes for me for the party. Was a little late getting home so utilized the DVR to catch up on my Husker game. They were awesome! After that, it was time to get down to some cleaning, complete with a hands & knees scrub the floor kind of cleaning. After that, I took the dogs for a run, then hit the gas station & liquor store and it was finally time to get ready for the party. (Anyone else tired - cause I should of been!)
NoDIY and I have been texted back and forth a lot lately. No idea what prompted it, but it has been happening. Anyway, he was having a Halloween Party and invited me to go. RN decided she would go to and so, after she got off work, we headed south. I think probably my most awkward moment of the night was when we got there and were told everyone was outside. Of course, we walk out the door to realize there were two girls there and then us two and of course, the deck was covered with all guys. It was just weird to walk out and have everyone staring and not really seeing faces to know where NoDIY was in the crowd.
But, in the end, it was a really fun night. Julie left early because she had a 12 hour shift the next day. I, on the other hand, did not make it out until noon the next day. Heehee. I think it was midnight when we all opted to go to the bar and then went back to NoDIY's house and had more drinks and of course, he had out of control friend drama break out. Some of which was the first I had ever seen and hope I don't witness that again. Then, since he is at least 40 minutes south of my house, I did the responsable thing and didn't drive home.

Of course, every fun time should end with the flu. After spending half the day thinking it was a hangover, I realized by 6 pm it was the stomach flu. When you can't even keep toast or liquids down, it is more than a hangover! Yesterday I managed to keep food down but my stomach still hated me. Never mind the dehydration headache I still had going and the fact I am still battling the allergies and trying to avoid getting a sinus infection. Can you say Train Wreck? Oh, and I should mention that one of the dogs has this flu stuff too, so even when I think I am getting better, I have come home to a lovely mess that makes me sick all over again.
