Weekend Recap

August 23, 2010

I'm back! I haven't been near a computer until today -- so forgive me for not blogging :)  It was another great weekend... filled with fun and some unexpected events!

Friday, Matt came home from work early!  What a nice surprise for me!  So, we relaxed for a bit then got prettied up and went out for a great dinner at the Melting Pot.  I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.  Great fondue, in a quiet romantic setting... oh and the food is delicious too!  Cheesy fondue for an appetizer, salad, meaty fondue dinner capped with a delicious chocolate fondue.  Heaven!!!  It was great to relax, eat, talk and explore the area a bit.  Afterwards, we anxiously awaited the new episode of Whale Wars on Discovery channel.  A highly recommended show.. the Sea Shepherds fight to stop Japanese from whaling.  It really makes you think, and gets you hooked (no pun intended).  (The episode was awesome,  I shall blog more about this later!)

This is me, dying to eat cheese fondue!! Mmmm

Saturday- after we woke up, we ate and relaxed (see a trend here??) then Matt wanted to head to the local Ford car dealership to see what he could get for his current Explorer.  (He's been hooked on a 2010 Explorer since we looked at them last week)  LONG story short, we headed over.... and 5 hours later came back with a 2010 Eddie Bauer Explorer!  Matt wheeled and dealed, wasn't sure, test drove 2... then decided to get it after the patient men threw in navigation for free!  It is a sharp car and Matt got a really good deal on it!

After we drove off the lot with a new car, we headed home to Lancaster to see Matt's family and cats (and to surprise his parents lol)                                                                                                                         

Sunday, Matt, his mom and I went to the grocery store in the new car to get food for dinner.  Then, Matt and I picked up his friend Dom and went out to lunch.  Dom came back to Matt's house with us to hang out and eat a yummy dinner of hamburgers and corn on the cob!  It was delicious and really nice to spend time with friends and family.  Matt and I didn't get home to Silver Spring until almost 10:00 last night!! It was definitely another wonderful weekend.

Now for a Monday update:  want the good news or bad news first?  Good news is: I got a job!  Bad news is: it's in retail (AGAIN) and I have orientation tomorrow.  I'm about 50/50 on whether or not to be excited about this.  I went for an interview today at a much closer Express.  And while I didn't have to be asked the same questions again, I talked with the manager, told her my unemployment woes and that I need SOME type of job to get by.  What a coincidence!  She said she has an opening for someone who can work 30/40 hours a week/weekends (nooooo) and maybe looking to move up to manger eventually.  So after 5 minutes I accepted the job, after saying I am still looking in TV, and I go for orientation tomorrow at noon.  I'm happy to make some money, not happy because it's retail again.  SO tired of it and everything that I have to deal with.  I'm praying some kind of job in my field will come in the very near future, but for now I have no choice but to work at Express.  I like the store and can you say hellloooo discount! so those are positives.  We'll see how this goes!

Now I must go work on more laundry! Ciao!
