My weekend in a nutshell (or rather, a bulleted list):

+ Friday evening I went out to dinner with the roomie ([profile] enigmaticblues) at our favorite Mexican restaurant in town, La Paz. We are there pretty much weekly at this point. Sometimes we miss a week, but that's rare. I'm expecting them to soon know our names and exactly what we want to order when we walk in the door. Chicken flautas for [profile] enigmaticblues and the burrito royal for me. Yum!

+ When I got home, I was excited to find my S2 Farscape DVDs in the mail. So excited that I hugged the box from Amazon immediately upon pulling it out of the mailbox. So you can bet the rest of the evening was spent watching Farscape. *sigh* Love.

+ Saturday I got my hair highlighted. I'm still not sure I like the particular color of blond that is now my hair. But I don't really hate it either. *shrugs* Saturday afternoon I applied for student loan consolidation and cleaned my apartment. Saturday evening I took a nap and then watched more Farscape.

+ Sunday I did the usual Powerpoint duty at church. Then I washed my car inside and out. (Random side note: Cleaning makes me feel accomplished.) Sunday afternoon I took another nap and watched more Farscape - sensing a pattern here? Sunday evening I went for ice cream at Cold Stone. Again with the yum! Oatmeal cookie batter ice cream with chocolate chips mixed in.

+ Sunday night I talked to [profile] _lashingoutloud on the phone for two and a half hours. I did not intend for the call to be that long. But really, the time just flew by without us even knowing it. It was so much fun! It's awesome to pretty much immediately be comfortable with someone on the phone...when you've never talked to them in person before. I've had a similar experience with [profile] shannigansx. So I've been incredibly lucky that way. And blessed to have such wonderful LJ friends, who sometimes cross over into RL friends.

So that was my weekend. I've been pretty busy at work lately, and it's been wonderful. But tomorrow afternoon I fly to Dallas for the rest of the week for training. It's strange to realize how traveling used to be second nature to me. I traveled about 90% of the time with my old job. Now, I haven't traveled at all for work in the six months I've been at my new job. So this trip to Dallas is really freaking me out. Very strange.

Anyway, I should have everything I'm currently working on finished up before I leave tomorrow, so who knows if there will be anything for me to do when I get back to work on Monday. But, when I do get back, I only have two weeks of work before I go on vacation to visit my parents and meet [profile] shannigansx. And one of those days is the 4th of July, so only nine working days! *squee*

OK, I'm pretty much rambling on about nothing at this point in the post, so I'll wrap it up. I'm taking my laptop with me so you may see me around the next few days. (I have to pay for internet access at the hotel, but I'm addicted enough, I'm sure I will!) Regardless, I'll be back on Friday evening. Have a good week, all!

Oh, and look at the cute turtle icon make by [personal profile] pasadora! I saw it and had to have it as my nickname is Turtle, and I have a small collection of them out on my balcony (not real ones). So cute!

Well, I just found out that one of my coworkers put in his resignation yesterday. I think a lot of people are upset with him because he started a week after I did - so he's leaving after only five months. But I'm happy for him. Like me, he commutes from Lincoln, and he's managed to find himself a CFO position there. I think it will be a better fit for him. Plus, it selfishly makes me happy because some of his work is getting passed off to me, which at least gives me (a little) something to do.

What makes me sad about it (again, selfishly)? He and I were supposed to go to training in Dallas together in late June. Now I have to go by myself. And I'm pretty much dreading it. Oh well.
