I’ll admit that I sort of fell off the blogging bandwagon a couple of days last week.  Sometimes life gets so confounding that little things like blogging fall by the wayside.  The shame being that I actually ate fairly well.  A wasted healthy blogging experience.

Of course all that healthy eating was soon counteracted by celebrating my Dad’s birthday!!!!  I went out to visit my family on Thursday night, right up until a few hours ago.  My dad is turning a dapper (insert random age here), and if there’s one thing my family loves it’s birthdays.  So, yeah, I ate out a lot, because birthdays aren’t just one day, they’re an entire mass of days.  I also took my dad out to a Long Island Ducks (minor league baseball) game on Saturday where we had his name plastered on the scoreboard, we also had him sung to by approximately 3 separate sets of waitstaff at varying restaurants.  We’re big on embarrassment where I come from.  If you can’t embarrass the people you love most in the world, who can you embarrass.  That was one part of his present, I also bought him a hat at the game, and every year I buy him a variety of foreign beers.  This year the countries represented in ale-form were Belgium, Japan, Latvia, and Scottland.

I always love going home, but I love coming back too.  I had a girlie outing with a dear friend, where we had just about the most delicious fro yo on the planet.  It’s called monstersomethingorothereth, okay it’s not called that but I can’t remember what it is called.

This is my last week before I start my new jobby-job.  I want to say I’m going to spend it running around being wild, but in reality, I’m still shopping for a new roommate, all four of the people I offered the room opening up in my apartment to ended up passing.  I find that all very strange as my apartment is actually quite nice.  So, more apartment showing this week.

I have been toying with the idea of living alone; if I don’t find someone I actually like this round, I think I’ll convert the spare room into an office.  I just really want to save some money.  Before I lost my jobs, back in December(!!!-I can’t believe it’s been that long), I had been putting a lot of money in savings toward one day buying a condo or co-op.  That savings has dwindled quite a bit, and I’d like to replenish it now that I’ll have a reliable income again, even if that does mean no walking around naked and having a guest room.

Oooh, but walking around naked does sound like fun.
