i'm (not really) lovin' it

I am sitting alone at McDonald's, having bought a cookie because I feel an intense guilt for using wi-fi without paying a token fee.  We still don't have internet hooked up at our new home, because it just doesn't seem to be a priority at 9:00 a.m. when I can't find a decent pair of jeans that aren't covered in paint  (the benefits of DIY projects on a new home).  I spend my morning rummaging through boxes in the basement, finding salad spinners and a campstove, but no jeans.  By 2:00 in the afternoon, the internet is a major priority as scholarship deadlines loom and I need to work.  So, I head to McDonald's instead of school because I am still wearing paint-covered jeans.  I spread out hundreds of applications and flyers on scholarships, and try to focus my mind while blocking the announcements that Order 39 is now done.  And this is why I hope that we don't move again for a very, very long time.

Nice. You gotta love real life. I sure hope you find some jeans soon!

Loved visiting with you over the holidays! It was so funny picturing you ordering your cookie and then pulling out all your papers and forms with your computer. Hilarious!
