Weekly Wrap Up

March 31, 2014
I wanted to wrap up my week this time by stating what I'm thankful for.

*I'm thankful that I got some great coupons in the mail!  I got to go shopping, but I only spent $2 because I got a free travel sized item from Bath and Body Works and a $10 birthday gift card sent to me from Victoria's Secret.


*I'm so relieved that I did not get sick and hope I didn't just jinx myself.  On Friday, a student I subbed for got violently ill in the lunch line.  I'll spare you the nasty details, but let's just say I had to hold the trash can for her.

*I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that I didn't gain any weight this week.  I didn't lose any, but I really thought I gained!

*I'm thankful that my boyfriend cooked me some spaghetti and chicken last night and brought home some subs for us from a new place in town earlier in the week.


*I do usually prefer closing shifts at the movies because those ones tend to be less stressful, but I must admit that it has kind of been nice opening and having my nights off.

*Even though I worked a lot this week, I still found some time to Netflix it up with Breaking Bad.  I'm obsessed with that show even though at random points throughout the day I'll think about Tuco's grill and start gagging.  #scarredforlife

* I'm thankful subbing went well on Thursday.  I thought a kid got seriously injured at recess because he came in the door with blood smeared all over his face.  Before I could even ask, he told me that he lost his tooth while he was out playing and that he swallowed it.  Haha!

* I got scheduled with two of my work buddies, and shifts always fly by when I work with the two of them.

* I'm pleased that I found this cool jewelry organizer for bracelets.  It's made with black velvet, seems sturdy, and was reasonably priced on Amazon for $19.45.  I feel like I will wear my bracelets much more often now that they are in plain sight and on display.  Plus, they won't get tangled up with my other jewelry in my jewelry box.  I really love this bracelet organizer and now want an earring and necklace organizer, too.


Looking forward, I'm thankful that I get to meet up with Rachael again this week!  I'm so lucky that I live nearby one of my blogging buddies.  Also, I'm ecstatic that I'll be on VACATION this week!!  I haven't had a week off since last May when I went to South Africa, and that was on a study tour.  It will be so nice to just do exactly what I want to do and to catch up with my sister!

    1. It does smell good! I have another B&BW coupon to use, so I might try to get the matching lotion as my next freebie item. :)

    1. Well, the days on the weekend get really busy whenever there are lots of kids movies out. Also, my area has a lot of old people, so that adds to it. We do get slammed during the night shifts over the weekend, but there are always at least 3 managers working then. Sometimes there are 4 or even 5 managers scheduled on Fri/Sat night, so there are more people available to handle the problems. During the day, sometimes my boss will schedule only me as the manager, which makes me feel like a chicken running around with my head cut off.

    1. It is!! I'm on the last season now, and finishing the series is going to be bittersweet! I wish they were still making more episodes. Why did it have to end, why??

  7. Looks like a busy week! Sick kids are never any fun. I find that I usually don't get sick from the kids that get sick. Instead, I catch some random thing that I can't pinpoint the origin of....

    1. I subbed that class again and she gave it to the girl who sits by her! At least that girl didn't come to school that day so her germs stayed with her at home.
