Have you ever started to blog but before you could finish it, it was no longer full of relevant information? That’s happened twice this week, so let me try this again.
Blogging was put on the back burner while I enjoyed Andrew’s week off. By the end of the week, I was burned out on Pokemon, partially because I played it nonstop and the other part, Andrew follows me around like a puppy telling me things I don’t care about it, getting in my way, and ignoring me for the damn thing. I love Pokemon but that man ruins it for me.
Friday, my mom had her surgery. Thankfully, it could not have gone smoother. She was in pain, which was to be expected, but overall she was in good spirits went my brother and I were allowed back to see her.
By Saturday, I fell back into this weird phase where I just can’t get enough. Of course, it had to happen the day before he went back to work. I would spend all day thinking about it and by the time he got home this week, he’d pick up the DS and wouldn’t put it down until he went to bed. So, that caused a few issues over the week. Angie and my mother both told me to take the damn thing off of him or hide to get him to do anything.
Monday (or Tuesday, I’m not sure) Andrew found a great deal on a chest freezer on SlickDeals at Kmart. My brother was off so we went down to pick it up. I’m so excited because this may be the first brand new appliance I’ve ever had, if you don’t count Rent-A-Center. It’s new, it’s clean, it makes our ice cream rock hard (which I never knew you needed to ask if the freezer freezes ice cream before. Ones that come with fridges don’t usually do that unless you ask. The more you know..). I love it and now we can buy meat in bulk!
Wednesday, I got a panicked call from my mother on her way to Zack’s school. Without going into too much detail, Zack royally screwed up. So, I was at her house helping out because the woman just had surgery. Overall, a lot of people involved are being extremely helpful. Zack is nothing less than a good kid, who made a big mistake. Everyone can see that. He couldn’t be more remorseful about it. FYI, no one was hurt or in any danger. I could go on forever about it but it’s not my place to speak about it or make a public announcement on this blog so I’ll end it here.
Friday crept up on us. Or on myself at least. Honestly, until yesterday, I wouldn’t have been able to properly outline this last week because I thought yesterday was Wednesday.
We don’t have Zack and Breya this weekend and I happen to see a meat sale at MaineSource so we went and picked up Steaks. I’ve never heard Andrew make those kinds of sounds while eating so I assume I can cook them well. We also popped some baked potatoes in the oven (which I’ve never tried) and they were amazing. So good, Andrew is thinking about going back to get more.
Today, we got up late and watched a movie together. We hung out on the couch for a few hours and now he’s back on his DS. I’ll give him a little while but if he doesn’t give it up soon, I’ll be taking it off of him to get what I want. 😉
A few of my favorite things from this week:
- My neighbor’s friend brought her baby down a few times. Baby tummy gobbling is my specialty.
- I watched Pitch Perfect which I thought was a cute movie.
- A project I did a couple months ago for school proved to be helpful again when Angie needed blogging help videos.
- My mom told me that she brought Phantom in the house and it’s been so cold that he doesn’t even want to go back outside.
- Pennsylvania’s Fall season is officially upon us. Lots of people are probably complaining but my favorite time of year is Fall nights where it’s cold, windy, and has a peaceful sense to it. Leaves have fallen and it just feels like Halloween. It makes me miss my black cat.
- I pulled out the Christmas tree I got back in August and looked for a stand. There is one so I don’t have to worry about finding one for the tree I have. I’ll just need more lights, ornaments, and a star.
Overall, I’m super happy with the way things are going. I’ve got some, not much, money coming in from blogging and a few freelance jobs. It isn’t steady yet but I like to help out.
I had plans to dress up for Halloween but my anniversary present/hoodie/costume kept getting forgot about. We were going to get it from Hot Topic but when we went down to size it, it was too small even with their largest size. I can’t say I’m bummed because I went looking for the next size up and found it on eBay for $40 less and in a bigger size. So, unless I get creative, I won’t have anything for Halloween since it’s coming from China and still hasn’t been ordered yet. I’m still getting the damn hoodie, though.
I’ve always wanted to go to a Halloween party and my neighbors next door are having one. Costumes are required, though, so we’ll see.
