Some days just put things into perspective.
I needed a day off. Seriously. I got up late, threw down a protein shake, and headed off to get a massage and a touch up. I’m gray, proud, and hiding it every four weeks. When I got to the salon, they didn’t have my name in the book. Because the girl who took my appointment put me in March instead of February. The owner is a good friend, so I got squeezed in. Apparently I’m so stressed and tight, I need therapy between massage visits. I am now the proud owner of a tennis ball with a smiley face so that I can roll my back on it to get rid of the knots. Apparently, even my feet are tense. Have you ever heard of such a thing?
After the salon, I headed into Philadelphia to look for apartments. I’m 33 years old, and I’m sneaking around Philadelphia looking at apartments. I wish that I were joking, but I’m not. Apparently my parents think I should buy a house. With a savings account of about $0.25, I don’t think anyone will lend to me in this market. I found a great place. It’s close to everything, new, clean. I’ll have a parking spot in a gated parking lot right next to my apartment. The management company is two doors away. I think I’m gonna sign a lease 🙂 But shhh….don’t tell my parents. I have to break the news to them. If you have any suggestions, I’m game.
After apartment stalking, I sat for a bit in my friend’s coffee shop. She made me the most beautiful latte I’ve ever seen…great coffee, great service. I’m going broke when I move to Philly ’cause I’ll always be there.
Then I had dinner with my friend. It’s so refreshing to have someone in my life with whom I can talk about things and not feel like I’m being judged. I just enjoy being around him. It amazes me that a year ago we were friendly but today I can’t remember life before I knew him. I think one day we just might dominate the world 🙂
