Success!!!!! I made it to the end of the week.I only napped 3 days this week. That’s almost a record for me – yesss!!!
I’m hoping this weekend is more funfilled. Tonight Chris and I are going for dinner and then to a movie. I’m excited. It feels like I haven’t been on a movie date with him in a long time. Tomorrow we might get up early and go to the Farmer’s Market. I actually wouldn’t mind checking out some yard sales this week 🙂 It would be nice to get some cheap finds and then do some DIY projects to decorate our apartment. Our apartment looks so plain. There is nothing on the walls and very minimal “decor”. I feel like I can’t get too decorative since we’re only going to be at the apartment for a little over a year (hopefully), then we’ll be buying a house. It was like that for me for the past 7 years! I haven’t been able to “nest” in forever! First I was living in residence at the University, then there was the apartment with my ex, then back to my parents house, then living in my Nonna’s old house, then moving in with a friend, then back to my parents house, and NOW the apartment with Chris. Wow, I moved quite a bit.
Saturday night I’m hoping to go out with the girls for drinks and dancing. I miss getting dressed up and going out. Most of my friends have husbands and babies, so it’s harder to plan a night out. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they find babysitters or that their husbands are in a good mood and want to watch the kids so we can have a good time. I’m too antisocial now. Since I got a new job last summer I don’t really talk to many people during the day. My office is in the back of our building, so there is very little interaction for me. For 3 years I used to work at a job that required me to talk to so many different people all day long. That’s pretty much the only thing I loved about that job – everything else was pretty shitty. After I go home from work I pretty much just eat dinner, exercise, and go to bed. Very little social activities going on there. Is this what growing up is like? I barely remember my mom ever going out after work or on the weekends. I need to get a social hobby….immediately!! I remember when going out with my friends was the most entertaining thing I could do. Now it seems like laying down and watching TV with my dog is the most I’m willing to do. I’m so boring – or I’m getting old.
Apparently I’m not good at this blogging thing. Pfft!
I’ve still been eating well and exercising frequently to try and get this extra weight off. It’s a lot harder then it was a few years ago. I’ve also come to the conclusion that my medication is somewhat to blame for this. I haven’t been eating like a pig and sleeping every hour of the day, so there is really no reason why I gained an extra 20 pounds! …I’ll keep telling myself that anyways.
I can’t wait for the summer to start!!! The weather is getting warm and Chris and I have been spending time outside – going for walks and talking the dogs to the dog park. It’s been rainy and gloomy during the week, so Chris can’t work. Instead he plays video games and watches TV all day. I’m a little jealous.
One of my good friends is going to have her baby soon! I’m so excited! I haven’t really seen her in awhile, but I still feel like we’re very close. Every since she started dating her boyfriend we haven’t seen very much of each other. They live together, so they spend a lot of time together and then she’ll hang out with him and his friends because he wants to hang out with other people. I took it personally for awhile, but then I got over it. It just is what it is. You can’t stay best of friends with someone forever, right? I mean, there are ups and downs, as with anything else. I’m hoping once she has the baby we’ll be spending more time together. I can go over and help her with the baby, and if her boyfriend goes back to work out of town I’ll be seeing her a lot more often I’m sure.
Good friends are hard to come by these days. It’s not as easy to find them, that’s for sure. It was so much easier when I was in high school to just meet people and create that kind of bond. With work I don’t really chit chat with the other ladies in my office because we’re all doing our own work. It’s also harder as I get older because more people are getting married and having babies. A lot of the time I hear “I have to check with my husband first…” before committing to going out. It’s getting pretty exhausting. Maybe I should put an ad out on craigslist. FRIEND WANTED: Must like country music and wine. The end.
