This post brought to you by the comfort of my own couch...

Yes, I am officially unemployed. Friday was my last day at work. It was a little strange leaving at the end of the day knowing I will never be back, but it was even stranger knowing that the next time I work for a living (four years from now), I will be a DENTIST (holy crap!).

We had friends over this weekend, and we had a really good time. Monday, however, was another story. We are painting our bathroom. I am not a good painter. I'd go so far as to say I'm a bad painter. My husband would go so far as to say I don't need to be allowed near a paint brush. That doesn't stop him from making me help, unfortunately. I am good at removing wallpaper, so I actually did most of the work yesterday. Today, he must remove the toilet tank, sand down the walls, apply the primer and them the paint. When that is done, we will hang the new Roman window shade (love it!), the new light fixture, the new towel rack (bathroom did not have a single one, believe it or not), and then put the mirror back up. He thinks we will get this done today. Me, not so sure.

Thursday we are heading to my hometown to visit my family, and then Friday/Saturday to my college town about an hour from there to visit friends. One of my friends (a teacher) recently went to FIJI to study the coral reefs there. Yes, I am jealous. Can you believe that? FIJI!!! I actually know someone who has studied coral reefs in Fiji. So, naturally I am going to find out all about that. She also happens to be my best friend, and we have a lot of visiting to do before I start to school and her new school year starts.

Sunday we will head back to my hometown (grandmother is giving a huge Southern lunch--can't wait) and then back home.

Well, my paintbrush awaits, so I better get going. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Congrats on being officially unemployed! Although I am sure you will be super busy with school. Mmm, Fiji sounds lovely. Maybe not right now since it is hotter than Hades here, but in the winter, that place would be perfect!

Unemployment means sleeping in!! Well... sometimes :) I hope you get to do some of that! I hate painting!! We are in the process of painting the trim in our spare room and it sucks. I started it about two months ago - and never finished it... better get on that... :( I've always wanted to go to Fiji - but the flights are so expensive! I'm jealous... :)

It was good to hear from you! I'm glad you're doing well and enjoying being off. Enjoy it! I sure do sometimes. I hope you're having a good weekend, free of bathroom painting! Saturday morning back to work for me, and Fiji sounds perfect right about now...
