Have you ever had one of those TGIF moments? It hasn't really been a hard week or anything, but really, TGIF. I'm planning have some quality "me" time after work today. Need to catch up on various things, not to mention clean up after the hurricane that seems to have swept through my apartment the past few days. I've barely been there this week, just long enough to sleep and shower, and on occasion eat before running off again. It'll be great to unwind tonight.
I decided to go shopping yesterday during the few hours between teaching my flute lesson and community band rehearsal. Shock of all shocks, I bought nothing. It's not that I don't have things to wear, I was just hoping to buy a cute new top or something to wear on Sunday. Why, you might ask? Because I'm meeting the bf's parents on Sunday. We're going to breakfast/brunch with them and then going to some car show. (they're looking at classic cars) I'm excited, and it's only fair, he met a huge chunk of my family last weekend. Apparently his parents have been wanting to meet me for a while now, and he kept having to tell them we weren't even dating. Haha. But now we are, so I'm very much looking forward to meeting them. And breakfast? Come on, best meal of the day. I could eat breakfast food always.
I've definitely felt more of a need for actual "me" time lately. But I suppose that part of it is that before we started dating, I had a lot of undefined "me" time, and now I'm just labeling it as such. This week has been SO busy, I'm really looking forward to some down time tonight.
Another mini-project I'm trying to work on is filling out my profile info and such, and personalizing my blog a bit more. I love the layout I have now, but it's a generic template, and I'd like something a little more personalized to me. However, I just haven't had the energy to do more than glance at the coding. I could always get a pre-made one, but since I'm capable of making my own, I kind of want to do that. So look for various little updates here and there, and eventually a whole new layout. I'm planning to add links to the blogs I visit...I think it's called a blog roll ? Or something like that, haha. I'm getting the hang of it, slowly but surely. Before this I wrote in my Live Journal, which I do still have. But it's a friends only, and very few people have access to it. I'm really excited about being here on blogger now, and I'm excited that there are actually a few of you who take the time to read my ramblings. I imagine they aren't incredibly interesting, but I'm trying to get better at it. Hey, I did just start posting more regularly, that's progress, right? Of course I didn't post yesterday...but I posted twice the day before, and the photo upload kept erroring on me yesterday. Okay okay, no more excuses. But at least I didn't wait another week before posting again, right? I really like this whole daily posting thing. It's kinda fun. :)
I'm trying to change up my photos. I should have some new ones after this weekend, especially if we go offroading tomorrow with the bf's desert friends. (love the bf's truck...have I told you about it yet? I'll have to post a picture sometime) Today's picture is yet another from the weekend my cousin was here. (I'm beginning to see a trend here...what can I say, we had a great weekend and we're both camera crazy) This one is an entertainer in Balboa Park. Those kids were SO fascinated by this guy, it was really fun to watch.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday! :)

What a great shot!! It looks like a fun place to be.
I hope the breakfast went well. You sounded so calm about it. I am with you, breakfast is my favorite food! Love going out for breakfast.

Hope you found some time for yourself last weekend. It is important to get that time in. Yet, I know how hard it can be, when real life takes over!

Have a great week!

Hi Eileen, thanks for visiting! The meeting of the parents went incredibly well, there will be more details in my post later today. (which actually will be later today, unlike yesterday, where I didn't even get it done) Hope you're having a lovely week being back home!
