Because it's Thursday, and I'm signing off early this week!
I'm currently letting my mani/pedi dry (went pink, because I got overwhelmed, and it's breast cancer awareness month) and listening to this song on repeat..(The Weekend- The Hills).. warning it's explicit, if you're into that sort of thing. (I am lol.) I got some new music for the plane tomorrow and I'm pretty obsessed with his whole album. Because I'm so gangster like that. (I am.)
This week fleeew by, but short weeks will do that to ya. I've been super busy, living, getting pedicures and being a clean freak because Johns parents are coming tonight. I don't know why I'm like this, but whenever someone is coming over/staying with us, I feel the need to do things like vacuum the couch, and organize the pantry. John thinks I'm crazy, but I just think it's the nice thing to do, you know?
His Johns parents are coming here to stay and watch Ted this weekend while we're gone. It might sound ridiculous (because I have family nearby) but I promise it isn't! They wanted to come! I think I've mentioned on here before that John grew up with two labs, but I don't think I ever mentioned that they had to say goodbye to them both last year. So they've been dying to meet Ted. I predict his Mom will cry, haha. (And I predict I'll cry when we leave.) AND it's his Mom's birthday tomorrow. So I do feel kind of bad about that, but I got some flowers and cupcakes for her today. I actually made cookies last week, with the intent to freeze them and take them out today for them, but not surprisingly I ate most of them. And then when my Mom and sister were here last weekend, I stashed the rest in my Moms purse to take with her because I needed them out of my sight. So cupcakes and a clean couch it is.
Teds been very strange this week though. I think because Johns been gone a lot this month, with traveling and just working long hours in general so when I pulled out the suitcases the other night, he just started being funny. He's being really whiney. I was getting ready in bathroom yesterday, and he walked into the closet, sat down and cried. It's kind of funny, but so sad. I don't think it will last though and I'm sure that by the time we get back he won't even care we're back because he's going to love them so much. Hopefully he's good for them and doesn't do what he did to me last night...went nuts and ate a bunch of grass before bed then threw up in the middle of the night. I was like half asleep patting him on the back saying "it's okay buddy." John slept through the whole thing, but I texted him this morning, "if we weren't already paying for the carpet here, we are now" haha. Oh well.
Let's see, what else has happened this week....
I traded watching Parenthood every night for the OJ Simpson special on A&E. I don't remember much from when it happened 20 years ago, because I was 7...but I find it equal parts disturbing and fascinating. Fascinating in the fact that, DUH he totally did it. I'd say it's similar to the reason why I liked watching The Jinx, because it was so unbelievable that anyone would think that he didn't kill those people. Same with this. It took a few nights to watch, and each night I would tell myself, "I'm not watching that again" and I would watch it again. I'm surprised I didn't have bad dreams. Now I'm in the middle of "June 17th, 1994" on Netflix. (Really good.) I'm obsessed.
And random, but my lips are so chapped right now. Out of no where. NO WHERE! It's always the first sign to me that the temperature is dropping, when my hands and lips get so dry. The last time this happened was when we went home in January and that was understandable because it was a drastic temperature change, but lately it isn't THAT bad. It's killing me. I've been carrying around a thing of vaseline with me, and no not one of those tiny cute ones haha. The big tub of vaseline. And I had big plans to wear lipstick this weekend for once, so they better recover quickly.
On the note of weather changing, it's become normal that I have to wear two outfits a day, one in the morning when it's freezing and one for the second half of the day when it's blazing hot again. Texas October can't make up it's mind. It drives me crazy. But I kind of can't complain because I do love that it's cool enough to actually stand being outside again. Just for fun, here's a picture from when we went to the pool on Sunday.
And yes we shared a chair. Because we like to get weird looks from people.
And on the topic of my husband....here's two reasons why I love him this week.
1.) We got new phones (okay maybe that's reason #1) and I don't know what the stupid cloud even is, but I hate it. Once I got my new phone home, our desktop wouldn't let me sign on. It kept asking for my iCloud password, and I am not exaggerating I tried it 400 times, even changed the password twice and nothing. So instead of figuring it out, because I'm me, I ignored the problem and just signed onto Johns name and worked from there. But Johns middle name is problem solver, so after a few days when he realized what I was doing, he took my my phone, dialed apple support and left it speaker phone right next to me forcing me to deal with it. 3 advisors and 2 hours later, I can now log back into my own name. My idea of solving it would have been to just start a new identity.
Hahaha. This was from a group message with his whole family. Completely random and not really at all conductive to conversation that was going on. (Someone said something about people talking loudly on phones at the airport.) I laughed for about 3 minutes straight and stared at him like, "how do you even know what 1989 is?" lol. I'm not kidding when I say that I think he is the funniest person ever.
But that's about it, so peace out! Feel free to follow me over on Instagram (which is famous today, thank you to The Daily Tay) which I may or may not update this weekend. I never make any promises though..
