I used to write posts on Fridays to try to remember all the little things that happened each week, and then I sort of just stopped. And then I started again. And then clearly, stopped again. But then last night all three of us were in bed trying to fit inside Ted's little cone and I thought it was hilarious and vowed I would blog today, just to at least remember that.
I'll get to explaining the cone part, but first I just have to give warning this is going to be all over the place. There's no theme except that it's Friday and I just want to reflect. So sorry if I don't make any sense because I don't have a ton of time. And I don't really care. (Does anyone else really care though, lol?) I really miss blogging just to remember life, so I want to try to do more of that. (And more of writing things that matter too....but this stuff matters too. You know?)
So Ted first obviously. I feel like I never talk about him anymore but he is literally the BALL AND CHAIN OF MY LIFE, hahaha. But really though.
I've talked about it in the past, but he has some bad allergy problems. He's been on steroids a few times but since it keeps happening and that's not really a long term solution (really bad for him actually), we finally got him tested and apparently he's allergic to pecan trees, CATS and hickory trees. Cat's! Seriously. I thought that one was so funny. I'm pretty sure John was secretly happy though because there's a kitten we saw at Petco that I keep talking about, haha. Anyways, it makes sense because he got a REAL bad reaction after we visited my Mom a few weeks ago, and my youngest brother had been there the week before...with a kitten. So he has this one spot on his neck that he won't stop scratching and it keeps bleeding, hence the cone situation. He hates it, but it's just so funny. John and I have been dying over it. He sleeps with us, curled up on our pillows usually...and he'll jump up on the bed...come up to the wall, get his cone stuck on the wall (like imagine just his cone pressed up against the wall with his face trapped inside) and he can't figure out how to turn it around so he can curl up next to our heads. That probably made NO sense whatsoever, but at least now John and I can remember. Besides the cone though, he doesn't seem to mind being sick. He thinks he's special because he gets "medicine." And I say "medicine" because he knows that word now and will come ruunning for "medicine." He also knows the command, "get in the tub" because I have to rinse his paws off every time we come inside. See now why he's my ball and chain, lol? I could obviously write about his allergies forever, because it is my life, but I'll spare sharing every detail and just say that we have a plan. And dogs (with allergies..) are expensive.
There's not much else going on besides that though. I started a new workout program this week. I'm SURE I will write more about that later, but love it. Umm. I can't stop eating Kroger brand natural peanut butter. (And I say that because I'm eating it right now.) Johns been working a ton. And I haven't been allowed to say, but he's on the COOLEST project. He says I might be able to say when it's over. But it's big. (Not saying it's the coolest job, because he has to work so much it actually makes me hate it. But it's "cool.") He has to do these middle of the night shifts a lot lately where he has to be there at 2/3AM so going to bed early, has become even earlier. I obviously don't have to, but I try to go to bed at the same time as him since sometimes it's our only time together. (And I read once that couples should do that.) So I'll usually watch a movie or something while he's sleeping. (Even though I think I'm sort of loud and move a lot so I'm probably not helping him sleep, lol.) Writing this all out right now makes me realize how non-exciting our life is right now, haha. But you know what...it's life. It's not always a circus. And I still haven't figured out "what I'm doing" here yet, so besides my little biz, I don't have much going on as far as actually doing things, outside of the house...so non-exciting life it is. And that's cool. (Sort of. Sort of also freaking out about that.)
We did get Netflix again, only for a month though, so I would like to ask for some recommendations on anything I MUST watch. I only have like a week left though, so don't tell me The Walking Dead or something that will take me more than a week, lol. We do have HBO go and we started watching that new show "The Night Of" because I watched the first episode and then MADE John watch it. (For my own memories sake, it took like three hours to get it to work the day I made him watch it too, lol. Technology. So fun to figure out.) It's pretty good. John thinks it was inspired by Adnan from Serial, and I think maybe he's right.
OH and I got a new license. (Because I did say this was going to be all over the place and not make any real sense right, lol.)
I officially live here. Up until now we've kept our Michigan licenses and plates and our permanent address at Johns parents. (Even when we were only dating which I find funny now because we were SO basically married, lol.) So this was very exciting. I had to "surrender" my old one and John was trying to tell me to say that I lost it so I could keep it since it was my first "Morgan Apfel" license, but I don't know how to lie. And then I remembered that I do actually have my first Morgan Apfel license, because mine expired and I had to get a new one like two months after I changed my name.
Pretty decent picture though, if I do say so myself. But I have to end it with this...
How I really look. Hahaha. This is the only real recent picture I have of us. Which, I'd like to actually make a goal right now to take more pictures of John because my entire camera roll right now is of myself and various body parts...and that's weird. If the world ended right now and all I had left was my phone I would not care about the progression of my arms, lol. Not that that would ever happen, but the point is. I need to start going back to documenting and remembering our life better. Because even if it's non-exciting right now, it's still happening. And someday I'll probably think it's special, even if I don't see it right now. (#foreversentimental.) So maybe I make Friday posts another weekly thing? Someone hold me to this...lol, John?
