I forgot to post last week, so this one is a little late. On Tuesday of last week (2/11) I spent most of my day at work organizing a bunch of shoes that came in for our annual event, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. I’m really looking forward to it, and we’ve got less than a month until the event now. Then later that day, a few of us from the Wellness Resource Center got to have an informal chat with Mike Dormitz, a speaker of the Date Safe Project. He travels the world speaking about consent and healthy relationships through the event, “Can I Kiss You?” Casey and I were lucky enough to be invited to have dinner with him and our bosses, which was a really great time. Then he presented his event, and we were given a signed copy of his book — which I look forward to reading sometime soon.
Then on Friday (2/14) I took the train home to visit Tim. We had dinner at a small Vietnamese restaurant near his house in Harrisburg, which was delicious. We went home and watched a documentary, “Unhung Hero,” which I would highly recommend! Saturday morning we cleaned up the house and finally got all of the boxes unpacked and put away (yay!). Then Tanner and Strauss came over, which it was so good to see them, especially Tanner because he’s been in China since Thanksgiving. We had dinner and played some games. On Sunday, Tim and I went to Lebanon to visit his parents, and then have dinner with my parents. Mary drove me back to Philly on Monday.
This week has gone by pretty fast, and I’ve been busy with volunteering at Planned Parenthood and at work. Yesterday I volunteered in the morning, and then substituted two classes where I presented “Test Your Stress Smarts,” a program held by the Wellness Resource Center. It’s always really fun, but teaching the same thing twice in a row can be a bit much — I now know how teachers feel! Then later that night, Danielle picked Jess, Kristina and I up and we had dinner at Cantina, one of the best Mexican restaurants.
Because it was so nice today, Jess and I decided to venture out of the house for a little bit. We walked down the street to get frozen yogurt, and after sitting outside for only a few minutes, it was too windy that we had to retreat back inside. Too bad it’s going to snow again this week… I just can’t wait for spring!
Next weekend Grandma, Mary and Kristen are coming to Philly on Saturday for the Flower Show and then taking me back to Lebanon because it will be my spring break for a week — can’t wait!
