unemployed

Last Friday was my last day of work. [They only let graduates work for up to 2 weeks after graduation.] We figured since we'll [hopefully] be moving in about 5 weeks, finding another job might not be the best idea unless I want to be a sales rep at APX alarm...yeah right!

I thought it'd be a piece of cake to keep myself busy all day every day, but I'm finding out that spending all day by myself isn't really THAT fun. I was thinking this morning that I wish I had some kids, like teenagers or something...you know, people to hang out with around 3:00 PM when they get home from school.

Anyways, I'm definitely not complaining. This past week I've been able to do all the things that I've been wanting to do for a long time....
  • Visit the Springville Art Museum
  • Go SHOPPING! :) ...and run errands like a crazy lady!
  • Make crazy delicious dinners (i.e. stuffed shells, pizza, mexican shepherd's pie, etc.)
  • Get a new social security card with my new name! (We've been married almost a year and I'm just barely starting to change my name...woo!)
  • Make Mother's Day and birthday gifts for my moms and sistas.
  • Get my hair highlighted (hopefully next week...)
  • Meet Aaron on campus for lunch! :)
After today though, I've officially run out of errands and things to do. Which means....STUDIO TIME! I've done some research and apparently oil paint can potentially cause some problems with the whole having children thing, so I'm thinking maybe I'll try acrylic and/or egg tempera?? I'm not trying to throw out any hints or anything, I'm just sayin... wanna keep myself healthy!
