Wordless Wednesday

And then my aunt sent me this picture of my cousin and it made me feel 1000 times better about life right now.

I've Grown Some Feelings.

I woke up this morning thinking it was Monday, but it’s Tuesday. Usually that happens the other way around.

I’m really hoping for a relatively easy week. I hardly got to see manfriend last week because of our schedules. And he scared the living bejesus out o f me on Saturday.

I called to wake him up at 8:15 to see if he still wanted to go to yoga with me. He’s been really tired lately and not sleeping well at night, so he decided to stay in bed. He asked me to call at 12:00 to make sure he was up to go see a dog he was interested in adopting. I called and he didn’t answer. 5 minutes later he still didn’t answer. I waited until 1:00 and tried again. No answer. So I decided to make cookies for my dad for Father’s Day. I got done around 2:30 and still hadn’t heard anything. By this time I was starting to get anxious. He usually calls me back pretty quickly. Plus he had had a seizure after his car accident, so I felt I had some right to be worried. On the more logical side of things (it was a one-time seizure, and he’d been fine for the last 6 weeks), I didn’t know if he had to be at work at 4:00 or later. So I headed over.

I don’t have a key to his place, but luckily his apartment is on the bottom floor and his window was open. He was fine. He was just in such a deep sleep that he didn’t hear his phone. I told him never to do that to me again-even though I know he didn’t do it on purpose.

It also showed him how much I care. And I think I surprised myself a little by how much I care. Which is honestly a little scary.

I'm Not Sure Whether to Find This Depressing or Encouraging

My horoscope today:

Your key planet Venus is in your 9th House of Big Ideas yet her square to diffusive Neptune makes it difficult to know exactly what you want. You may be overwhelmed by your dreams of an ideal vacation or your attraction to a new philosophy or religion. But when you get closer to your imagined future, it crumbles before your eyes. Don't accept defeat; create a more realistic set of goals and try again.

I'm not sure how I'm supposed to feel about it.  Hopefully it doesn't come true.

What I've Been Doing Instead of Blogging

I’m going to write with bullets/a list. Apparently this is how I blog these days. Hey, at least there’s writing going on over here.

  • I went to Florida to visit my mom over mother’s day. It was a pretty laid back trip that consisted of the beach, shopping, and eating. Just the way I like things.

  • There were a few family parties. All of which the new manfriend attended. Yes, a manfriend. He also happens to be my trainer (Gasp! The Scandal!). It was totally unplanned. On my end anyway. Which turned out to be a good thing, because I was never trying to impress him or anything, so I know he likes the real me. I like him a lot. I might even heart him. We are not to the big L stage of things yet. He’s met pretty much my entire family. This is kind of a big deal. I don’t bring just anyone around. 

  • He got hit by a car on Cinqo de Mayo (the day I left for vacation), so I've been showing off my mad baking skillz.  Because baked goods always make people feel better.

  • My dad had to put down both of our family dogs. Rufus had to be put down on Tuesday. He was 16 or 17, so it was sad but not a huge shock. Rucci had to go down a couple of weeks ago. She was Rufus’s daughter. She was a surprise. Turns out she had a brain tumor.

  • I went to David’s Bridal yesterday with Kellifish. She found out she was pregnant after she bought her dress. (It's not a shotgun wedding.)  So she's getting the same dress, just a lot bigger.  Luckily they do exchanges and can alter the dress she already chose to fit her belly.  (They  have fake baby bumps there if you kno anyone who happens to be preggo and getting married.)

  • I'm itching to get to the shore.  Not when it's oppresively hot like it is today.  Just soon.

  • I'm getting an InternGirl to do my bidding in the office.  Not really.  She will be helping out and stuff though.  This way they can give me more creative stuff.  So exciting.  Especially since I'm too lazy to look for another job.  Also, I don't want to leave for something else that's only good enough.  I've been working on figuring out what I really want to be when I grow up.

More (probably) on the stuff that's to be continued soon!

So I Haven't Posted for a Month and a Half

Sorry about that!  My absense was mostly unintentional.  Lots to catch up on, but I'll keep this relatively short.

Yesterday was June 1. And I fully intended to post, but I got sidetracked by an hour-long phone call with Kellifish. (Long story short, I’m now her maid of honor). There seemed to be a trend around the interwebs yesterday of setting goals. I guess it’s only fitting that this was my horoscope:

You can share your thoughts about going back to school or fantasize out loud about
your latest vacation destination, but you must get serious if you actually want to make
something happen. It's easier to talk about your plans now than to execute them
with the loquacious Gemini Solar Eclipse activating your 9th House of Big Ideas.
But don't waste your time telling tales of maybes and possibilities.
Instead, pick one goal, write it down and then commit to do whatever
it takes to make your dreams come true.

As soon as I read this I thought Molly from Stratejoy could have written it. (PS if you’ve never visited the site-GO. I read the blog every day.)

My goal? I want an apartment-a place of my own. I love my aunt, and am so grateful that she’s let me live in the house that’s been in my family for like 90 years (which I love), but I’m aching for a place that’s all mine. Somewhere that I can leave my shoes in the living room, decorate (I’ve been obsessed with interior design blogs lately), and not feel obligated to give 24 hours notice if I won’t be home for dinner. I’d prefer to live 100% on my own, but I think I’ll have to have a roommate (fingers crossed I don’t get someone crazy).

There are a few things I need to get out of the way first. Like getting a new laptop (with the help of my mom, thank goodness.)

Another goal is to update once a week. Since I haven’t been updating at all lately, I feel like this is the most manageable. I’m not even going to set a specific day, because I’d like to not set myself up to fail.
