Awkward and Awesome Thursday

8.04.2011

AWKWARD
--Sometimes when I smell something delicious cooking in the microwave at work, I'll poke around in the garbage can to find the container and identify the smell (don't worry, I won't do it if it's totally icky).  It's how I discovered Trader Joe's Chicken Tikka Masala.
--I woke up yesterday morning feeling really sore and achey - kinda the way you feel when you have a fever.  I decided to take my time getting ready, fully intending to go in late.  Then I got an email that said I had to turn in some research "in 15 minutes."  Oops.
--Roughly once a month, I have to trim Molly's little nails.  She hates it.  I always come away with a scratch or bite.  Nothing serious, but enough to make it clear she is not a happy piggy.  She's the only girl I know who doesn't like a pet-icure.  Ha ha.  Ha.

AWESOME
--I'm planning a new business venture.  It's a little intimidating but oh so exciting!  I don't have too many details cemented so I won't say much for now.  But I will {hopefully} have some very good news soon. :)
--We're going to a bocce ball tournament in Sonoma this weekend.  And by 'tournament' I mean "playing with friends and family."  How much more California-summery can you get!!
--Figs.  I just can't get enough of those yummy things!  My fave breakfast at the moment is a toasted whole wheat English muffin with lowfat cream cheese and sliced figs.  Yum!!

  11. I don't know which one I like more, your "awkward" confessions or your awesome plans.. they both made me smile.

    Good luck with the bocce ball family tournament (family's the best type of competition.. who doesn't want to beat they're uncle/cousin/sibling?) and your new business venture. They all sound great to me!

    Our mini weiner dog (Charlie)hates having his nails trimmed. He screams and claws at me. He is so dramatic about it!

  16. Stephanie, first off, I want to say thank you for your words of encouragement. And secondly, I can't believe you have to trim the nails off of Molly. I know that it needs to be done on dogs, but a guinea pig? Wow! And I thought they were low maintenance pets - good to know for the future :-)).
