It feels like forever since I was able to be on my computer bullshitting. It’s sort of sad how much I love jumping on my computer to look up stuff. I missed self diagnosing my problems and illnesses, trying to look up ways to get rid of cellulite, wasting time on pinterest, planning a vacation or mini trips, printing pictures whenever I wanted to, etc.
Anyways, my life is pretty much the same. I just finished eating a piece of heath bar cheesecake. It’s been frozen in the freezer since my Birthday. Today is my half Birthday. That’s not why I ate the cheesecake though. I ate it because I have raging periodness right now. It’s that during your period where it’s really heavy, you have nagging cramps, your sweet tooth cravings are uncontrollable and you might kill someone. I actually thought I was going to pass out in the store because I felt sooo shitty and lightheaded.
So really a lot has happened since I last posted. Well the big events are that my sister, aunt and dan’s sister got engaged.
Emily, I’m really excited for her wedding. It’s going to be this like 3 days affair. There will be a small ceremony on Lake George and we’re all staying at the Sagamore. (love that place now), the next day will be a day on the lake for all of us, then the next day is all the extended family going to the track for the day and then going to the Mabee farm for a casual celebration for Em and Conor. I so can’t wait! I have so many dresses to buy this season.
Aunt Chris, excited for her! She went throught so much after losing John. Andy is very different than my uncle was, but Chris is the happiest I’ve seen her in a long time. She also gains a whole family because he has four kids and 1 grandchild. I gain four first cousins I guess. They may be doing a Fall wedding. I get the vibe that my mom isn’t totally enthused by them getting married, which I find annoying. I feel like at some point if she doesn’t start being more supportive of her sister I’m going to snap at her!
Erin, I’m excited for her and Joel. It seems like there relationship has come a long way and they have the kids together and it will be good for them all to settle down as a family. I almost forgot how long they’d been together. Erin asked me the other day to be a bridesmaid. Should be fun to help her plan the wedding stuff out and plan a bridal/bachelorette party. I think they are doing something at Joel’s dads for the wedding itself in August.
Work has been super frustrating. I feel like I don’t get a lot of support from the upper management in my company. The one cook left. We had one week without him, last week, and that was one of the most tiring weeks I can remember! We got one new guy in, only to have to fire him two days later because he had a really bad attitude at work. We finally have a new person who I think will work. It finally hit me today that things may begin to settle down soon. I hope it will all work out and I can plan my vacation soon. I have a week requested, but I haven’t planned anything since I didn’t know if I would have someone reliable to cover it. Dan and I are talking about going to LBI for a few days and staying at this hotel right on the beach that has a tiki bar and pool. We also talked about Florida and Harry Potter Theme Park and Disney, but LBI would probably be a lot cheaper.
I cannot wait at this point for it to get warm! I like winter, but at this point it’s just too much. I want to get out and walk. I’m sick of being inside! I want to go camping and go outside on warm days and have a drink. I want to not have to wear my winter coat and gloves everywhere still.
This past weekend Dan and I went to Boston and we stayed with my aunt and uncle. I’m so glad we went! I hadn’t visited them since 2007. It was nice catching up. My aunt is really into cheesemaking, so she took us to her favorite cheeseshop and this great winter market. We went to the Gardner Musuem, which was this awesome art collection in this amazing old building that made you feel like you were in Europe. It was beautiful and it’s definitely a place I would really like to go back to. My aunt and uncle stayed in on Saturday and Dan and I were on our own. We ended up just hanging out in this one cool bar the whole night. We also went to the FMA art museum and that was really amazing too. They had all this ancient Egyptian artwork and you could spend an entire week in that place. It’s good getting away!! The weekend after this one Melissa and I are going to Brooklyn to visit! Should be fun!
Our apartment is a mess. Most people wouldn’t say it’s that messy, but it is and I don’t feel like cleaning! Grr I just want winter to be done. It’s putting me into such a slump!
