Woohoo! A Long Weekend…Finally!

26 05 2008

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend is upon us and I’m ready to celebrate! No work tomorrow! Cocktails outside after the kids go to bed! Hooray! I don’t know why, but weekends are exhausting! Being on-call 24 hours to the kids is very tiring.

This weekend, I joined a walking group at church. I love the idea of being involved in a group that encourages me to get off my lazy ass and move. Just so long as I don’t become one of those mall walkers, I’m totally good with it!

The Hubs is still looking for work. Anyone know of anything that’s open? I’m starting to get really worried about being able to pay for the Baby’s school with Hubs out of work.

Cooking-wise, not a lot is going on. Dinner tonight is slow-roasted pork loin, mashed potatoes, and broccoli with cheese sauce. Yum! I’m starving already!

Work has been going great – a major project and a new-ish campaign are both demanding my full attention, so I’ve been bringing my laptop home the last few nights (not this weekend, of course), which is probably mostly to blame for my being so wiped out.

On the fashion front, Friday, I unearthed an absolutely beautiful aqua halter top that I forgot I owned, so I wore it when I went out with the girls that night and got rave reviews. I’m definitely going to have to wear it again – maybe to work with a cute little cardigan? I really need to start paying attention to my summer wardrobe. There are way too many cute things out there!

Beans and Caviar has tagged me for this meme, which is the Peeps I Want To Know More About meme. Here are my responses.

The rules: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

2) What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:
Gardening, go for a walk (I just joined a walking group, so I’m pretty enthusiastic about it), cook dinner, do laundry, start cleaning my house for my in-laws’ arrival next weekend.

3) Snacks I enjoy:
Chocolate, but only really great chocolate.
Anything involving cheese

I’ve often heard that a dream is only interesting to the person who has it, but since this is my blog, ha ha, you’re going to hear it anyway. I have been dreaming about dead people mistreating me – my mom and my beloved B. Why is that?

Last night, I dreamed about B. In my dream, he sent a message through a waitress, saying that he wanted to slow our relationship down and that I shouldn’t count on an engagement ring, but then, later in the dream, somehow, the message that he wanted to marry me more than anything came to me. What does that mean? Does that mean that he deliberately slowed our relationship down because he somehow knew he wasn’t going to be around? Is he trying to send me a message now – 7 years later?

And, what I’ve been struggling with is how do you say to someone who’s no longer here, “I’m not over you  yet and I don’t know if I ever will be?” How do you know if, despite the fact that you’ve done your best to go on with your life, you’re truly happy? I admit that I am monumentally screwed up that way. Sometimes, I don’t know which way is up and now, this. What does all of this mean?

Tough Week…

16 05 2008

…and, really, I don’t know why. Hubs lost his job this week. The company let him know Monday that his assignment was over and that he was “on hold,” whatever that means. So, now, after 3 weeks of gainful employment, the hubs is looking for work again. Gaw! He just got this job!

Aside from that, it’s the week before Mr. Monthly makes an appearance and I’m all bloated and miserable. I’m tired of being tired and poor all the time. I miss being able to go out for dinner or to go shopping. Can I just say that being an adult sucks sometimes?

Work has been a little slow lately, so I’m going through another round of paranoia. I hate my clothes and my hair. And I have to poop, but can’t. Gawwwwwwww!
