Alright so the warmth was only playing hide-and-seek, because it has returned with a high of 45*F today. Yesterday’s high temperature was 20*F, and the wind was out of control. Not hurricane status, obviously, but it was strong enough to throw me off balance when I was getting the mail.
I think Thursdays are currently one of my most relaxing days of the week (I’m tellin’ ya— it’s the new Friday!). Of course there’s still school, homework, and dance, but for some reason, I feel like I have a lot of down time in between all the activities. I’ll take it :) Tonight I’ll be babysitting my cute Valentine’s date, so my plans will involve diaper-changing, burping (the baby), and maybe a little yoga again. Just being domestic, right? I should just become a housewife right now and call it a life. That requires a husband though, so I guess I’ll stick to college first. ;)
And here are this week’s Fascinating Friday Links! Enjoy!
