I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch break today. I treated myself to a chicken pecan salad sandwich from Arby's (highly recommend). I ate in my car with the windows rolled down (remember I'm in Minnesota) and felt a nice breeze as I read the Book of Mormon (also highly recommend). And, I filled up the gas tank at $2.17 a gallon - no joke. This is very exciting because it means that just maybe, maybe, maybe airfare will go down ever so slightly or, if it doesn't, it won't be too horrible for Pedro and I to drive back to Utah for Christmas. Pray the roads aren't too bad.
Another reason I enjoy my lunch break is that I actually have one (rather than an all-day break). I've been doing temp work at different companies around the St. Paul area for the past month. I've loved meeting people and making new friends. This week at Nexstar, I've met some great people. They are so NICE! The sad thing about making new friends at work as a temp is that tomorrow I have to say goodbye. I am a big fan of email and facebook. It helps me stay at least somewhat connected to all my favorite people.
