Wow, I didn't realise how long it had been since I last updated!  Nothing much to tell, but I figure I'll post anyway.  Work is still pretty good; we've hired a couple more paralegals, whom I like.  Half the office was out on Friday, which was kind of nice, since it was quiet, and kind of boring at the same time.  I'm house-sitting this weekend, and then Monday is my dad's birthday.  I'm making the most sinful non-chocolate dessert recipe in our family, my grandmother's goofy bars.

Today was my yearly shopping trip to the good mall.  I needed some more spring work trousers, and I was looking for a new purse as the ones I have are finally wearing out.  Since I got both of my old purses on sale and kept them for so many years, I was reluctant to spend a lot of money on a new one.  But I did have some coupons, so it wasn't as bad as it might have been.  I also paid way too much for a pair of khakis, but they're comfortable and look nice, so whatever.

So, I've had an interesting week or so. This past Saturday was, sadly, probably the highlight of the last two weeks, partly because I spent all of it on campus, and partly because I got to go shopping with [profile] jcgenzie_and_co

The college held this 'Fiscal Fitness' seminar for seniors, and, even though I won't be graduating until December, I figured now was as good a time as any to get the info, especially since I won't be a student when they have it again next year.  The deciding factor was totally the fact that part of the seminar was being given by our beloved former college president, whom every single person, not just on campus, but probably in town, too, calls by his first name.

Jen kinda slept in accidentally through the morning part, which was actually pretty informative and rather fun, but she came for the afternoon part, so I wasn't lonely anymore :D  Also, we got the comfy seats this time, in the front.

But the real joy of the day was the trip over to Northlake so Jen could see if the bookstore there had a book she's been looking for and doesn't want to purchase from Amazon.  I offered the use of my car, not all that eager to go back home to the empty house and do work, and we gave ourselves two hours.  

Now, I have to admit, I have been lusting after a pair of red Chucks for a while now, and I decided now was the perfect opportunity to check on the price; I resisted them in February, as [livejournal.com profile] kayliemalinza knows.  (Btw, I still think those green ones look AWESOME with the rainbow laces!)

Anyway, since the ones at Journey's were still $10 off list price, and they actually had a size that fit me this time, I bought them.  And love them.^^

And Jen totally saved me from spending ~$70 at Border's (she made me pick one hardback and put the other back), so this trip was made of win for me. (Though the store didn't even have her book at all. :( )

Yeah, not much else of note; still hanging in there.  Way too much to do.
