Got some 'catch-up' posts to do! Time crawls when I'm off the internet, but last week had some definite highlights:
     Monday, Oct 26th: My first lunch with Christi (at work) since May!
     Wednesday: A fantastic bedding sale tucked away in a room in a hotel downtown that a coworker gave me a heads-up about. Checked it out before work and got a lovely grey sheet set, 600 count with FOUR pillowcases for $35! It's a rare treat when I can find sheets in a color I want. =)
     Wed-Thurs: Misc goodies at work, a gift of cheese popcorn from Dawn, finishing chapter 5 in book 5 and starting in on chapter 6, great outline progress too.
     Friday: Victory with an art project that made Vue implode when I struggled with it Tuesday evening.
     Sunday: Finishing chapter 6 of book 5 and a good start in chapter 7--reached the place I wanted before my trip to CA.
     Tuesday, Nov 3rd: Got to wear my new Coldwater Creek $9.99 (with free shipping) black jeans to work, and they fit wonderfully! (Nice to have something newer than my decade-plus college-era black jeans! ;)
Where I'm At:
Sacramento, California
Emotional Status:

Isn't it great when you can get exactly what you are looking for at the right price? It seems to me that I am always sacrificing one thing for another: good quality/what I want = me, broke, and me hanging on to the contents of my wallet = crappy quality/crappy substitute for what I want. :P

Yep, there's always compromise involved somewhere, bleah! So it's quite nice to find a good deal once in a while.
