Wasn't the world supposed to end today? I was kind of counting on it to get out of the homework I procrastinated while watching LOST this week. In all seriousness, if the world ended tomorrow (or today, like it was supposed to) I think I'd be okay with it. No more stress inducing homework, rude people, finances, jean shopping or bad hair days to worry about? I'm in. I mean, I don't want to die yet, but if we are all going... why not? My Mom went to a "end of the world" yard sale in Tucson yesterday. So if nothing, I got some awesome records out of this end-of-the-world hullabaloo (thanks Mom.)
Call me superficial but there are two things in this world that can make me instantly happy... a good pair of new jeans and getting my hair done. A few weeks ago my favorite jeans ripped when I was putting them on (always a self esteem booster) and there is a void in my heart that needs to be filled with a new pair. I tried on a few yesterday but I just cannot bring myself to spend $100+ on pants! Do you know what I could buy with $100?! Two weeks worth of groceries, our cell phone bill, roughly 95 kit-kats, 115 fountain Diet Cokes, and like half of a text book! ... when I put it that way it kind of starts to seem worth it ... we can eat ramen for two weeks and I don't even like kit-kats ... okay, I'm not going to buy the jeans ... but I want too.
The weeks are flying by. I'm starting to study for mid-terms, it's nearly June and the days are getting longer. Lando leaves for school at 7 and I get up around 7:30-8:00, he always opens the blinds for me when he leaves and I love waking up to the sun coming through my windows. It doesn't get completely dark until 9:30. I love the long days because it means summer is coming.
We went kayaking and canoeing with friends last Friday on an 80 degree day. 80 degrees! Heaven! I wore shorts and got a sunburn. I know I'm not (and will never be) an official Idahoan because I still get so excited when I see moose. We saw two in the river! They are so cute and comical with their big noses, gangly legs and knobby knees. I'm looking forward to getting on the river again, it was my favorite thing we've done in Idaho thus far.
Happy end of May everyone!
