Even though I consider myself quite the Southern girl, I still wilt in this type of heat. The storms last night made no dent in the crispy grass or the glaring sunshine today. Normally I'd spend a day like this cloistered inside doing whatever work I could inside, but school time is quickly approaching and I needed to go and sort out some stuff down at the college.
Except they've got the campus half-torn up due to construction so trying to park and figure out how to get to the actual offices I needed to get to was irritating and heat-headache inducing. Between their website redesign, campus "remodeling", and subsequent raising of tuition I'm really dreading dealing with this year. After spending two afternoons at the college, I'm not any closer to being signed up for my classes, but I do finally have a heads up on who my adviser is and hopefully will have some answers soon.
Despite various frustrations of the past few weeks, I've had a number of smiles - including packages from some of my favorite bloggers. Today's pick me up came in the form of - napkins! Cocktail napkins to be specific. I got these from Ally yesterday, and having a kick-ass napkin to go with my pity-party lunch of turkey and apple sandwich with a chocolate dipped strawberry made my afternoon a little sweeter.
And since I've avoided discussing my daily outfits lately - This dress is one I got from Lynne when she visited Tennessee. It used to have a cap sleeve and was about 3 inches too long in the bust on me. It sat around for awhile until I got around to taking it up. Also I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before - but the DH hates these shoes. No idea why, not even he was able to explain why. They remind me of aliens or old fashioned flintstone-style stuff. I will wear these shoes til they fall apart.
Don't forget about my giveaway. Tomorrow night is the last chance to enter.
