12 Hours of Sleep

I just got 12 hours of sleep and feel fan-freaking-tastic! I have today & tomorrow off from my job for fall break - a well deserved break.

Last night after work we had this happy hour that turned out including people from two different buildingsfrom within the school district - all bonded by our common dislike (which is a mild word for most) for Voldemort (in our case - she who must not be named who is an administrator within the district). The name Voldemort caught very quickly as a way to not use her name. Sometimes it got shortened to the "Big V" or just "V" and people started making V's out of their fingers and putting them up in the air. It was all too hilarious. As it turns out there was a group of other people from the district from a different building that were there too - probably talking bad about V as well, since it is common knowledge that at least one of them has filed a greivance against V and others in the groups have gotten their butt-chewed (just because V can) by V.

So, went home for about a half hour, changed clothes, checked email, and ran off to play volleyball. We Won! All 3 games with a score of 25-22. Isn't that weird that all 3 games were the same score. Then back to a happy hour with the volleyball team. The bar we play for has $12 for a pizza & picther of beer on Wednesday - so that is what Kate & I get -- a meateater's pizza & a pitcher of Leine's Honey Weiss. I don't normally drink beer, as I don't prefer it, but I do like Honey Weiss. I am not sure what that is all about.

So, came home after that, checked email, played with one of the cats, said good night to Andy, and went top bed and slept for 12 hours! Man that felt GREAT!

And the only plans I have today is to treat myself to a manicure with a paraffin dip & a pedicure this afternoon -- and that's it.

Tomorrow we are (Andy & I) getting our hair cut (just trims) and then the other couple we are going to the Amana Colonies with are coming to pick us up. And then we go to a bed & breakfast for the weekend and go check out all their wineries & brewery & do some shopping. It should be fun.

Had my manicure and pedicure and was a little disappointed. It was kind of expensive for something I can do at home - but I guess now I know.

I went to see a movie after that - "Raise Your Voice" - thought I would see something that Andy wouldn't want to see. And I don't know if I was just PMS'ing or it was very sad in parts, but I cried like a baby in several spots of the movie.
