A recap of my week:
I was only able to work out one day this week, but I did get in plenty of walking. The cold I have is getting better but I have a very phlemgy cough, still... Ick. The sneezing and feeling congested is pretty much over. I hope to get back with my running and weight training in the next couple of days.
Jeffrey won this season's Project Runway. I completely agreed with the judges decision. He did have the best collection. I also liked Uli's collection, as it was very wearable, but agreed with her second place finish. I love Laura's styling but I wanted to see more than just a collection of evening wear. I was a big Michael fan throughout the season of Project Runway, but his collection for Fashion Week was not up to what he had been creating previously. All of these designers will definetly have a big career in fashion, so they, really, all won. It's just that Jeffrey won the big prize.
I enjoyed spa day out with the ladies from work on Friday. I had an 80 minute aroma therapy massage. Based on a questionare I filled out before my session, the massage therapist mixed a few essential oils together just for my massage. I had tangerine, spearment and lavender. The tangerine was the primary scent, spearment second, and then a slight touch of lavender. I enjoyed 80 minutes of total bliss. A couple of my coworkers also had the same kind of massage, plus facials and pedicures. The great thing about this day at the spa is that it was, basically, free. The office earns points by using certain vendors and lab services. They had enough points for 7 of us to enjoy a day at the spa.
The house is THIS CLOSE to being move in ready. I'm getting anxious. There are no window treatments (curtains, drapes, blinds, etc.) yet, but that's not a big issue. It's the floors that need to be completely finished. The tile is finished, but the dining room, living room and hall floors need to be sanded and polyurethained. I am looking forward to the holidays in the "New" old house.
Finally, the doctor's at work found a tech to fill the position. She has years of experience and will start in 3 weeks. I hope she works out for the office. When I left, they had a difficult time finding a replacement with experience. They even tried to train someone with no optical experience, but that didn't work. I hope this new hire will work out as they hope.
