The dress fiasco

So here's what happened: after signing into to David's Bridal and looking around after being told all dresses are "European" sizes {rollseyes} I need two sizes larger. So that's fine but that put me in the plus category which I've never worn. The dresses weren't that great and when I picked one to try the girl put me in a room in the lobby, amongst families and fianc├ęs to put a big bra, corset and slip on alone. So when I tried to put on a bra way too small but said it was a size larger than I usually wear, some customer lady opened the door (my name was on the door in big pink letters, mind you) I was exposed to the whole store. I called Mom to come in, who agreed, the bra was way too small and I decided I wasn't going through that for a dress I didn't want. I walked out, telling the consultant I didn't want to get dressed in front of an audience. It was too crowded, no privacy and just not worth those $1150 dresses they have on display.

Almost done

It's midnight and I've almost gotten all my homework done. I have the project that I have to turn in for my volunteering 3/4 finished, and my little discussion board assignments for tomorrow morning are finished. Now tomorrow I'll get the rest of the volunteer reflection paper done and the 2 discussion board questions for this week done by Wednesday. I'm really tired of going to school now. I'm ready to have the degree and not have homework. I'd rather concentrate on my life and all that needs my attention instead of typing up quotes from books and trying to come up with good advice for case studies. Only three more classes to go and I'll be done - with this program at least.

Up early

Up really early because Steve's back's been hurting so he's not sleeping all that well. Poor guy. So maybe that I'm up early I can be productive today. I still have the rest of my homework for the term to do by Monday. Since the weather says it's going to be raining for three days, I take it that hitting the pool isn't going to happen. Guess I'll have to go head to the treadmill instead.

I've not been keeping up with my library blog, which I'll have to update once I have my final report submitted.

Party time!

I was surprised with a going away party thrown by the library staff today. I got a card, signs, breakfast casserole (homemade) and apple danish. It was such a nice surprise. I am so grateful - everyone here was so nice to me.

Last day at the library

Today is the last day of my library internship. I got up at 5:00AM because Steve's in Edinburgh today and I wanted to see what he was up to. Now I'm watching Joyce Meyer, having coffee and getting ready to leave for the library at 8:00AM. I'll stop and get breakfast first. Maybe an iced coffee from BK.
