(Just took this pic of Lola in bed w/ moi. So cute and cuddly!)
My plans to drive up to Dallas today to see my parents were thwarted as soon as i learned of the massive thunderstorms scheduled to make an appearance tomorrow. This would've been OK if they were limited to Dallas, but once i learned that they'd be in Waco, Temple, and Austin as well, i knew i had to make a change of plans. I really can't afford to not make it back to Austin tomorrow and so, alas, i am forced to spend Easter weekend here in Austin. I'm fine with it, but feeling a bit sad for my Mom who i think was really looking forward to spend some time with me. Poor Momma.
So instead of spending 3.5-4 hours on I-35, I am instead laying in bed, listening to some Aqualung, snuggling with Lola, and just generally being lazy. Am willing myself to get up and clean my apartment - it desperately needs it. I've also scheduled a much-needed massage for this evening. I adore getting massages in the evenings because then i'm all relaxed and have no other obligations than to eat a light dinner and pass out. Yummy.
Some exciting news i learned yesterday while strolling through the Domain (Austin's "high-end" outdoor shopping mall, AKA Dallas wanna-be):
Austin's getting a Zara!! This is absolutely the best news EVER as Zara is one of the few places that offers work-appropriate wear that doesn't make me want to kill myself. ;-) I foresee better-dressed workdays in the near future...
I may need a nap before i attack my apartment. (Just so you know i'm not a complete waste of human space, i did manage to wake up this morning and go to SPIN.) *Yawn* Alright Lola's eyes just shut, AND my kitty Puffin has just joined us on the bed. I'll just have a petite sleep...
