Sometimes you just have to start the week off right.
For the first time in months, the B and I had an actual relaxing weekend. No anxiety, no stress, no shadows. It was just…relaxing.
We spent a lot of time annoying the animals, watching the ID channel (B is convinced that all women are deadly now) and reworking my coasters. I even managed to (somewhat) surprise the B with a Digby-day trip to Krispy Kreme on Sunday, to celebrate. The weather was absolutely gorgeous all weekend long and while I spent some time in the garden, Digby spent some time learning how not to play with a frisbee.
He’s got the chasing and catching down pat….somewhat. We’re still working on the whole ‘don’t-chew-bring-it-back-let-it-go-good-boy’ side of things. At one point he was running after the frisbee, catching it and launching himself up onto the retaining wall and running for the back of the garden to chew in peace. Goofy Goober #2.
Monday was back to work…but it started off on the right foot again with a parcel from Nana Margie!
Yum! A book on mod podge (my whole house is going to be mod-podged soon….i wonder if i can mod podge the dog to the cat?), a knitting mag and the latest gossip on the dingo from back home (he definitely ate the baby, just in case you were wondering). No lollies this time though…perhaps the postie ate them? You sent lollies, right mum? Hmm…
Headed back home after work to clean up and watch the B cook a delicious meal for Mr Jordan and Maniha. As with every nerd-meal, dinner was followed with a rousing game of Cards Against Humanity. I am pretty sure we are all going to end up in a handbasket at the end of our days for playing this game…but its just too much fun…right Poppy Jack? Don’t worry – we’ll bring the cards at Christmas!
Life is strangely…interesting? good? my vocabulary is lacking today.
I received an email from S this morning…he wanted to see if i would be interested in getting together this week to talk. Of course I said yes…but i can’t help feeling slightly anxious about it all. I want to be able to have a friendship with him…i feel like he was able to help me through one of the toughest times in my life without ever complaining or asking for too much in return. I realize that we didn’t work out in the end…but does that really mean that we can’t be a part of each others lives anymore? There are actually very few of my ex’s that i am still friends with…i mean there’s a reason they are now ex’s But the ones that have remained a part of my life are kind of stuck there forever, and i really wouldn’t have it any other way.
In other news, Miss M and i went out last night with the nerds to go and see the new Star Trek movie. One word…awesome. Fabulous casting, awesome story line…i think i was in awe from the minute we sat down until the time we left. Of course, we had to go back into the movie theater to drag the nerds out (*) and i got teased for teasing the nerds (stop hating on yourself ) But it was truly a very fun night.
In other, other news…we had a pair of ducks at work last week…the little male was very protective of his lady friend..but he did let me get close enough to take a few piccies..
I feel like i am finally on the right track. There have been so many signs for me, even in the last 2 days, that i would have had to been completely dead not to have seen. My thirtieth year has been a good one, not great…but i have definitely learnt a lot about myself. I think im really looking forward to being 31.
So here’s my list of happy for today..
- I am now the fourth nerd I was invited into the fold of nerds at G’s house. This week we did Wolverine…next week is Star Trek and then we’ll go back to nerding at G’s
- Matthew is in town and that means I get to see him and his wife (been way too long already Perth boy) tonight, which leads me to..
- Bourbon Briday!
- And last but not least…getting asked out on 2 different dates in less than 24 hours I have a feeling this whole 12 months thing is going to be fun!!
Last night Miss M and i went out with the rest of the nerds to go and see Wolverine. You know….showing support for my people and all that…or something.
For the record…Hugh Jackman…Hottt (yes…three t’s). Picture the row of us, one nerd then myself and Miss M then the other three nerds rounding out the end of the row. At one point in the movie, mr hottie-mc-hairy comes out in a pair of pj bottoms only and both Miss M and i at the same time utter “oooh!” then the girlfriend came out and wrapped her arms around him and collectively we said “oh!”. Cue laughing from all the nerds.
At least we find ourselves funny
This morning i had to get up and take the little stinky one to the vet. For the last week he has been having an issue with one of his ears so I had a fair idea that he probably had another ear infection. I absolutely adore my vet, not only do they really care about giving you all the information you need and taking care of the animals that come in, but they are also a completely open practice which means that everything is done in front of you and they really encourage owner participation – knowing that this can sometimes calm the animal down. I think Giz is mainly a big fan of them because they all dote on him and give him lots of treats when he’s in there.
So antibiotics, instructions for benadryl, fish oil(!) and a topical cream later we got to work. His status now? Please see below…
