Jinx no more

When I went to bed last night, I had made up my mind that I would be going in to the office today. I have several deadlines coming up in the next two weeks, and it's always hard to estimate how much time a given task will take when you've never done it before. Also, notwithstanding the fact that I have things I need to get done, I just need to log some more billable hours for this month.
I awoke 30 minutes before my 8:00 alarm, then proceeded to go back to sleep and slept until 9:20, when my mom called. By then, it was too hot already to take the dog for a walk (more than out to do his business), and I felt very unmotivated to go to the office. So I guess I have decided, by default, that I will be going to work tomorrow instead.
Given my plans for the weekend, that means I should be unpacking stuff here at home and doing laundry. But so far, I have instead surfed in the internet, ordered myself some new music on, and just generally hung out. Ah well.
I am maybe 50% unpacked, despite the fact that it has now been 2 full weeks since I moved in. The way my place looks currently, there is no way I could have anyone over; it's in total chaos. I really need to get crackin', but I am, as usual, unmotivated.
Went to a D-backs game last night, and that was fun! I went with my friend C and her boyfriend; it was good to hang out with them and chat. KC went, too, even though she had to work early this morning. The D-backs won the game 11-4, so that was good, too. Last season, SL and I went to 5 games, and I think they lost every one I went to. So last night's win made my especially happy: I no longer feel like a jinx. LOL
My eating--as I'd planned--was bad, bad at the game: I had nachos, a Diamondback dog, and ice cream. Given that food-fest, I was actually quite pleased to only see 214.4 on the scale this morning.
I'm meeting my friend V at 5:00 at The Melting Pot--yum! I will probably go over to that neck of the woods a little earlier: I need to buy some things at Ikea (nearby), and I need to stop by a couple of other stores, too.
I need to give myself a swift kick in the pants to get unpacked!!
