It’s great to be back at work without school obligations looming over me.
Jeremy took me out for date night tonight. I think I look espeically frumpy in this particular get up, especially standing next to Jeremy in his well fitting suit.
Jeremy took me to a book signing party at work – not entirely the most romantic date, but there was free wine and food. And his co-workers are always very nice and welcoming and love to talk about the renewable fuel standard. I get to practice my small talk skills between bites of shrimp or brie.
We did manage to cut down the mantles, so they ended up looking just regular. Jeremy bought the mantles on the internet and, essentially, they were un-returnable. If we weren’t able to cut off the extra 20 inches, we would have had to write it off as a sunk-cost which would have pained me to no end. But we didn’t have to and they look fine.
The huge German chest got moved into our bedroom. Our bedroom is now the land of the unwanted yet wanted furniture. Any furniture that we like and don’t want to throw out is now in our room. It looks like a mish-mash college dorm room now. Overflowing and uncordinated.
It’s late! Good night!
