My mom is currently in the air headed towards DC. I will be picking her up in about an hour. I have been so busy over the past week, that my room is mess, the fridge is empty, and I have no clean towels for her to use.
Since I have to drop her off at my house and then head back to work, I am hoping that she will occupy her time at the grocery store and perhaps do a load of laundry. Aren't moms wonderful! I don't have anything special planned tonight, except for a haircut. I scheduled the haircut before I knew she was coming in town, otherwise I would have done that one differently. Oh well.
Yesterday, during lunch, I helped a friend move a couch. It was a sleeper couch, the kind with the bed inside. Needless to say, it wasn't light. It did not fit on the elevator in his building so we had to go up the stairs. This required us to lift the couch over our heads to get around the turn in the stairwell. It was a fiasco of grunting and then laughter as we spilled the hallway ash try full of sand. In the end, the couch arrived in the apartment without us scratching the walls of the hallways and stair wells.
Tomorrow I am having my last BBQ with my co-workers. Also, I will be getting the chance to hear Tom Friedman talk after seeing his most recent movie called, "Addiction to Oil." I think you can figure out what that is about.
I have one week left of work!!
