Had a great time on Friday with another trip through the park district. We went zip-lining! While this was very tame in comparison to the zip-lining I did on the top of Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, I still had a good time. I’d been wanting to check this place out for awhile, so when this opportunity came along I jumped on it. I think I’d like to go back, because we didn’t do the full 8-line course. All of the women I was with were fantastic! Did I mention their average age was 62? :-) None of them had ever done zip-lining before and they loved it! Another thing checked off their bucket list, they told me. I want to be like them when I’m a senior citizen! LOL!
It’s a great day! First, it’s my Friday at the office because I’m off tomorrow to take another trip through the park district to go zip-lining at Zip Chicago (http://www.zipchicago.com). Then my new TV is being delivered this afternoon. Then a new comic book store opened up around the corner from my house. And it’s our quarterly bonus day (the one I automatically get & don’t have to fight for) and finally we had breakfast delivered in for my co-worker’s birthday. Not bad for a Thursday! :-)
Sometimes I love being a graphic designer, especially went it comes to freelance jobs my co-workers frequently come to me for. Case in point - a gal at the office is getting married in three days and just now realized she was missing all of this signage she needed for the reception, thank you cards and a poem for her father. She came to me in a panic, wanting to throw money at me to do everything for her. “Whatever you want to charge me! I don’t care! Can you do this??” One day and $150 later, she had it all. And I’ve got extra spending money in my pocket! Win-win!
Happy 5th Birthday, Bean! You were the runt of your litter and the only one not adopted at the shelter because you were tiny and a bit sickly. But when you reached through the bars of the cage and grabbed the brim of my hat, you grabbed my heart. And now look at the pretty, healthy girl you are, causing us plenty of mischief on a daily basis! :-) And you finally grew into those ears! LOL!
