Snore...and more

Lately, I have been exceptionally exhausted.

I keep awfully busy, so being tired isn't anything new for me. But tired like this? Unusual. I am sluggish. I am confused. Coffee and a few hours of wakefulness don't shake it.

I'm blaming it on the weather, because I have a hard time believing that I've come down with a case of mono.

Or maybe it's age.

After all, I do turn 24 tomorrow.

Mom and Dad took me out to dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday. We went to the local fancy-schmancy restaurant. I ate. And ate and ate. And then had some chocolate mousse.

My mom asked me if I was going to have children before she died.

I considered telling her that, at this point, my goal is to have sex before she dies. It seemed somewhat inappropriate, so instead I asked her if there were any immediate health concerns that I needed to know of.

The subject was dropped, which I was thankful for.

Since they won't see me tomorrow (which I'm slightly bitter about), Mom and Dad gave me a few birthday presents, too. New Ugg boots (as the ones Meg bought me last Christmas smell like a rotting skunk carcass), hockey goalie pants that make me look as though I weigh 300 lbs. but will (hopefully) keep me from serious injury and a goalie's neck guard (different from the famous player's neck guard).

I like presents. Even if they're random pieces of hockey equipment.

I'm only working Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, which I am totally excited and thankful for.

Originally, I took Thursday off to be a chill day before heading to Chicago with my mom and my grandma on Friday. Now, it'll be a cram-for-interview day, which will be helpful. I like feeling prepared.

I also like that I already had Thursday-Sunday off and then I land this job interview. Isn't that perfect? Doesn't that mean something? Won't the third time be the charm?

Cross your fingers for me.
