    I got so excited because I thought there was a live, tiny turtle hanging out on top of a trash can at the train station this morning.  You know, just a random turtle on a trashcan in 30 degree weather.  When I got closer, I realized it was a crumpled lollipop wrapper.

  • I'm starting the cookie baking for the holiday today.  Cookies everyday until Christmas Eve.

  • My foot is throbbing and I'm really uncomfortable.  I didn't expect it to be perfect 2 days after surgery, but it HURTS! And the meds they gave me just knock me out. They don't do much for the pain at all.  :(

    I never tell H how much my shampoo costs.  He would never tell me not to buy it, but I know he'd give me the side-eye.  

    Kind of like how he likes to make fun of me for how much I pay to get my eyebrows done.  DUDE.  YOUR EYEBROWS ARE ON YOUR FACE WHERE EVERYONE CAN SEE THEM.

  • I've been looking forward to hanging out with a friend of mine today all week. Except now she's saying she can't meet up until like 7 pm. I'm off tomorrow but I don't really want to do anything late either. It's too last minute to flake out but ugh.

    I am so not in the baking mood this year either!  Normally, in November, I'm planning my baking, making shopping lists, etc...  This year?  Nothing.

    Me too!  Usually I have the "list" of what days I am making what and schedule it all out based on what cookies are best after a few days and which cookies need to be eaten soon after baking.  This year I'm like...eh, I'll make these cookies.  Maybe they'll be ok by Christmas.

    This is how I feel about the entire month.  For the first time ever I am not even remotely excited for Christmas.  Too much other stuff going on and I am really struggling to get into it!

    I have the same eyebrow waxer and refuse to go to anyone but her even though there are places much cheaper and closer to my house. Eyebrows are serious business.

    I have never done anything to my eyebrows.  I have au natural out of control, take over my face eyebrows.  Maybe some day I will bite the bullet and get them done.  I am an eyebrow virgin.
