A Bouquet of Newly Sharpened Pencils

First off, how do you like the new Chicken Scoop design?  I made the background myself!!  On to my day…

For a work day, yesterday was just jam packed!  I started my day off right…

I am a member of the rewards program at both Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks.  I can’t tell you how many free drinks I’ve gotten at Starbucks.  These are my first ones from DD!  Yay!!  I had a delicious iced coffee with chocolate.  Yum!  Calories weren’t too bad either at 120!

Anyway, I spent my day limping around the office.  The arch of my left food hurts.  I know I know, people automatically say “plantar fasciitis” but I read online that that is an overall pain whereas mine is localized.  Who knows.  What I do know is that its all about rest, rubbing, and ice.  Of course, I forgot to ice it last night.  I promise to do it tonight!

Anyway, I got home from work and had lots to do.  I checked on my garden and the chickens:

?Rob and I shared the strawberries.  I left the tomato to ripen a little bit more!  Rob also brought home a whole bag of tomatoes.  He works for the city and sometimes residents give the guys “tips” in the form of money or other things.  Fresh tomatoes from her garden works for me!

Rob also made dinner last night.  Well, I made the veggies in the microwave and I made the fresh pesto with basil from the garden so I guess we split it.  He grilled the salmon.  It was delicious!

We decided to head out for some errands.  I’ll let you guess what for…

Need another hint?

Still no??

That should be a dead giveaway!  School supplies!!  So I still haven’t gotten the letter in the mail exactly but I emailed the director.  She said that I was “recommended for admission” and that they are waiting for the admissions office to get the letter back to them.  So to me, that sounds like they are just waiting on paper work.  So I’ll assume I’ll be good for the fall!  Woohoo!  I hate this whole limbo thing though.  Retail therapy is awesome, especially on useful things I will need anyway.

Before heading home, we decided to get a little treat.  Custard Castle!!  I think this was the first time I didn’t get custard there ever and I was disappointed.  Of course!  I should just stick to the usual next time although this was pretty good, it was a little freezer burned and it just wasn’t vanilla custard…

I am still excited to hear from the school that everything is official.  Until then, I have to brush up on my math and physics.  I might have to make a goal for next month for that.  This month’s goals, I haven’t even looked at!  Maybe later today I will examine how they are going.  I forgot what half of them were!  Ha!  Oh, as for a workout yesterday, I ended up not having time.  HUGE excuse.  LoL.  Really, my foot felt better later but I didn’t want to hurt it running.  We didn’t get back to the house until 8ish.  My decision was to workout, shower, then bed or spend time with the hubs.  Rob always wins 🙂
PS.  Anyone get the movie quote in the title??
