It's amazing how the little things can really be a mood booster.
This weekend, my husband and I invested in a sofa from Ikea, and we were able to give away our futon on Craigslist. We also got a really neat shelf from Ikea so we would have a place to display our Franciscan Starburst dishes that my parents gave us when we got married. It's finally starting to feel like home here, and we've lived here almost two years.
I had a wonderful day. I've been getting a lot done at work, and I've been communicating well with my boss. I'm really enjoying my new work calendar (my boss suggested I get it to "improve my time management" - and it's working). Today I got a new laptop for work, my very first laptop. I was able to get my docking station and dual-monitor setup all situated this afternoon so I can basically walk in the door tomorrow and use my computer at the docking station.
On the way home, there was a gorgeous rainbow that looked like it was ending right in the middle of downtown, right over my loft. We went down to the Press Box Grill and watched some of the Mavericks game and our burger was KILLER. If you ever go there, I highly recommend getting some of their House Ranch dressing to dip your fries in. And when I got home, I had half a pint of Haagen-Dazs Chocolate ice cream for dessert.
Overall, it's been a very good day, and a very good week. I feel all warm and fuzzy. Maybe it's the chocolate.
