I planned on spending Friday afternoon/evening hanging out at the ACC show in Baltimore, but not long after I got there, Joe called to say he wasn’t feeling well. (He’d been sick for a few days.) Of course, there wasn’t much I could do being two hours away. So his parents ended up taking him to the emergency room, where they gave him an IV. And I cut out of the show a little sooner than planned. I’d still like to recap what I saw at the show, but haven’t gotten to it yet because…
Saturday morning, I woke up and realized I had left my laptop charger in my office at Towson. And its not like I can just dash over there and pick it up. So, I’m stuck on my old laptop for a while.
Then yesterday, I went out to my studio to find that my oxygen tank was empty – the result of an undetected leak. In case you’ve never tried, its impossible to find someplace to fill an oxygen tank on a Sunday – and I’ve got orders that have to go out! We ended up snagging a tank from my dad’s machine shop, but that is practically empty to.
And now, between being behind on work and this little snow storm we are having, I won’t make it down to Towson again until my class on Friday. Which means no computer, unless I drive 45 minutes to the nearest Apple store to buy a new charger.
Hopefully your weekend was better than mine.
Oh, and as a result of all this, the sale is still up in my shop. Still time to get that 20% off.
Yesterday, along with my mom, brother, and my brother’s girlfriend, I took a bus to New York City for the day. I had originally planned to go to MAD, but after the bus arrived two hours later than expected, I decided to shelve that plan until I’m back in January.
After stopping in the Virgin Megastore (at Union Square, we weren’t stupid enough to attempt the one in Times Square this close to Christmas) we headed to my destination of choice, Strand Books. Can you believe I’d never been there before? I could have spent all day just browsing and exploring. But for everyone else’s sake, I tried to reign myself in, and left with only six books (two by William Zinsser) and a new tote bag.
My mood has improved considerably since my first post this morning. Turns out this was one of those rare, perfect snows – large puffy flakes that don’t stick to the road but make everything a beautiful sparkling white.
Plus, I actually road my bike today! Outside! In the snow! This is the first time I’ve ridden in almost two months, and it may have something to do with my good mood. It was just a short ride around town to run errands, but I couldn’t have been happier out in the snow and the fresh air. There’s this weird part of me that isn’t so upset about winter anymore.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Joe and I are heading to Ocean City, MD for our two year anniversary, so I’ll be back on Monday.
