DAYS 116 - 122

Day 116:

I traveled to Mom's work to meet her for lunch on Monday. As always, I had to drive on the most nerve wracking parts of 285: Spaghetti Junction. It's basically a lot of roads that overlap; you could be driving under one road while also driving over another. I'm not a huge fan of it.

Day 117:

I was off on Tuesday so I met up with one of my friends from high school for lunch. We went to the Mexican restaurant that we always go to so it we had a good time just filling each other in on what had been going on.

Day 118:

I was supposed to meet up with another friend for lunch before I had to go to work, but I ended up getting called in early so that didn't happen. :( I went into work thinking I was going to go to my department and work down there the whole time, but no. I had to work in the home store and fluff pillows and bath mats. FOR 5 HOURS. No fun.

Day 119:

The second season of Jersey Shore premiered! Need I say more?

Day 120:

I went on a purse hunt in Macy's. No joke. The other weekend, Mom found a purse that I got for her, but they she called me to tell me that it was coming unraveled. I couldn't find a match for the life of me until I asked for some help. Anyways, we found the same purse so I'm just waiting for her to give me the one she has now so I can return it!

Day 121:

It was Nanny's birthday!! So Happy Birthday Nanny!

Day 122:

I might be traveling home after work to see these kids. Nanny's coming over to have a cook-out for dinner, but since I have to work until 7, I might not be able to get there until 8ish. Hopefully, she'll stay!

I hope everyone has a great first day of AUGUST!
