Sunday 7: Mother’s Day edition

  1. I cried this morning because hormones. Sigh. 
  2. Breakfast in bed = leftover wedding cake samples.
  3. I let Jackson go have brunch with his grandmother. He came home with a rose and box of chocolates for me. 
  4. Today is definitely a major cheat day. Cake, chocolate, beer, and pizza has been consumed. Later D has promised me a ribeye and an expensive bottle of wine. 
  5. But…I ran/walked almost 3 miles. 
  6. I’m hoping that once I get my psoriatic arthritis under control I’ll be able to work out more consistently. My appointment is tomorrow morning. 
  7. Movie/nap time with my kiddo. 

it’s still sunday…

and so you get seven:

  1. This was a great weekend and it went by way too quickly.
  2. But…I’m off tomorrow, so yay. I have a bunch of stuff I need to do, but I’m definitely working in a mani/pedi. I’m in desperate need of one.
  3. We spent the majority of Saturday (afternoon & evening) outside, and now I’m covered in bug bites. Ugh. What is it about me that is so fucking attractive to mosquitoes? Dave doesn’t appear to have even one bite. Meanwhile, I have like 20. Calamine, tea tree oil, and Benadryl are my new besties.
  4. Can we just fast forward to winter so that all the bugs can fuck off and die? Okay, thanks.
  5. Today was shopping/home improvement day. We went to Michael’s, Target, and Lowe’s. We bought stuff to decorate the entry way. We bought a super cute rug for the breakfast room. And various other decorative items. Everything is coming together quite nicely, and it is starting to feel quite homey. I love it.
  6. Ooh I almost forgot the best part! Our awesome pal, Rob, helped D get my old sectional out of the basement and into the 2nd floor family room. Then today D and I (well mostly D…ha) hung up a bunch of family photographs, art, curtains, etc. The room is super comfortable and cozy now. The kids are going to be so surprised when they see it tomorrow night. It’s going to be the perfect spot for movie and game nights.
  7. We enjoyed our adult weekend, but we are ready for our kids to come home now.

sunday stuff

  • We bought (the first round of) new furniture for the house today. I’m so excited. I love the stuff we picked out. We bought a sofa, table, and two chairs for the great room. We bought a sectional, chair, and ottoman for the hearth room. We got a table for the entryway, and we bought a new dining room table, chairs, and bench. It’s going to be delivered a few days after we move in.
  • SQUEE. I wanted to post pics, but I’m too tired now. Maybe later.
  • We packed up Freya’s bedroom and the loft area this afternoon. We cleared out a lot of old stuff. We are making good progress.
  • D and I worked out today and yesterday.
  • Tonight is taco night. Mmm…
  • I’m super tired. Right now I’m enjoying some alone time.
  • After dinner, the plan is that D and Jackson are watching Star Trek while Freya and I watch Gilmore Girls.

12:50 am

  1. I’m still awake because I stayed up watching OITNB with the bf while he waited on his daughter to be dropped off at like 12:30 fucking a.m. over some stupid Girl Scout shit. *eyeroll*
  2. Later today (after we hopefully all get much needed sleep) we are going to Six Flags. Jackson is so excited. He has never been before. I’m hoping I’ll get him on a roller coaster.
  3. The bestie came over today and helped me pack. We got most of Jackson’s room packed up. I’m feeling less overwhelmed.
  4. I have developed a LuLaRoe obsession. I have two pairs of leggings and two dresses on their way to me. I have heard very good things. (Both dresses are variations of polka dot prints because of course they are.)
  5. I’m sort of dreading Monday. For reasons. I’m going to have to drug myself in order to sleep tomorrow night. I just know it.
  6. I’m feeling really good about my workout progress this week. I’m feeling extremely motivated.
  7. I should really go to sleep.

listy

  1. Fat cats are the best cats. Violet is a big old fatty and I fucking love it. She gives the best cuddles. I love rubbing her enormous , soft, furry belly. Today I met my mom’s boyfriend and his tiny little outdoor cat, Juju. Juju is cute, but he cuddles for shit. Fat cats for life.
  2. Yesterday my bestie came over and helped me pack up a bunch of shit. There’s still so much to do. *sigh*
  3. I bought an American flag string bikini to wear on vacation. D is super excited. He’s been trying to get me to buy one for a while.
  4. Season finale of GoT tonight!! It’s bittersweet.
  5. I’m bummed that the weekend is almost over, but I only have a 2 day work week so…
  6. I’m in the mood to bake eat cake.
  7. It’s 6:42 pm and I’m already fighting to stay awake.

i’m bringing seven back…

We do these Sunday Seven posts over on Tumblr. I’m bringing the tradition to WordPress. You’re welcome.

  1. It’s Mother’s Day and my kid is in Texas. I’m sort of mopey about it. But the silver lining is that I got to sleep in and lounge around all day, which has been nice. Plus, he’ll be home tomorrow afternoon, and he called me today to say that he’s very excited to see me. Apparently he has a special gift for me, which is awesome, but really I just want to see his cute face and give him a hug.
  2. Dave is pretty sick. He has the flu I had last week. Poor guy. He has a fever, so we have been couch bound all day. And most of last night too.
  3. We watched The Witch. It was disappointing. Not scary at all. Hard to understand what everyone was saying. Kind of boring.
  4. We watched The Revenant. It was long as fuck. Sort of boring. Though that bear attack scene was intense as fuck. They probably could have cut out like an hour of Leo just dragging himself along, grunting, and looking miserable as fuck. I get it. No need to rub my face in it.
  5. D is watching WW II shit now, like he is wont to do. I’m blogging, reading, and drinking wine. We are still on the couch. I have a giant sectional loaded with pillows and blankets, so we are pretty fucking cozy. I’ve loaded D up with lots of drugs. I hope he feels better soon.
  6. New Game of Thrones tonight. We re-watched last week’s episode, which was bad ass. I can’t wait to see what happens with Zombie Jon Snow. Are D and I the only ones who seriously don’t give a shit what happens to Bran? Because ugh.
  7. Oh and we are ordering pizza for dinner. Because why not?

Peace out. xoxo

(senseless) sunday seven

  1. I turned my air conditioning on tonight when I got home because it was 78 degrees in here and fuck that shit.
  2. I smell like frankincense and lavender. It’s delightful.
  3. I thought The Jungle Book was really well done. 
  4. I have a closet full of gorgeous clothes and yet I can never find anything I want to wear. 
  5. Leaving them and returning home is getting harder for all of us.
  6. We started season 2 of Catastrophe today. I really, really like that show. HIghly recommended. It’s on Amazon. I’m hoping we can binge watch it during our down time in Chicago this upcoming weekend. And, of course, there is Game of Thrones to look forward to on Sunday night. 
  7. Two Ativan and cat cuddles should (hopefully) help me relax.
