Whatever Weekend – Ground Control To Major Tom

“Here am I sitting in a tin can/far above the world.”

I’ve been so spaced out today! It could be because Tom and I stayed up late watching youtube videos after a very fun date night of Chinese food, frozen yogurt, and “Bones.” My whole schedule has been off this week, anyway.

Tom did cook breakfast this morning, though, and I was happy he woke me up for it:

French toast on sesame seed bread with bananas and honey.

Then I cleaned part of the apartment today, because, you know, I live on the edge! The desire to decorate is great. Must … resist … online … shopping.

Mom’s broken toe still hurts very much. I went to the grocery store for her (and us) today, went to the post office for her and took the dog out. Hopefully, she’s sleeping the pain away right now. She’s either doing that, or watching “Ghost Hunters.” I definitely get my love for scares from you, Mom. I’m watching “Celebrity Ghost Stories.”

I got to talk to my two best girlfriends today, and will probably spend time with one today, and the other next week. I’ve had a bleak social life since we started interning (I think that’s a verb,) so it’ll be nice to have some girl time. Also, since Spring Break has started, Tom and I will have more free time … even though his will be used for catching up on studying. I can’t say I envy him. For those of you interested in seeing the place I’ve been rambling on about for the past few months, here’s the Tri C:

The entrance to Freebucks, our coffee shop.

 We’re working on getting a website made, but in the meantime, we have a Facebook page. If you’re a UT Arlington student, stop by and visit us! We’re open 7:30 a – 10:30 p M-F, and there’s always free coffee, tea, and food. Look for us across from the UC on the North side.

I think that about covers the whatevers of the day. I hope all of you have a great weekend, and a safe and happy Spring break!

Share the Love,

Thoughtful Thursday – Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

Yesterday was a doozy. Despite it’s doozy-ness, I did get to see a very special friend of mine, along with several other old friends, while she’s in town from Chicago. We’ve known each other since kindergarden, went to school together all the way through high school, although we grew apart then, and began talking again years later. Her father passed away around the same time my grandmother passed away, and I just so happened to find her online around that time. She had a back to school party (I wasn’t even going to school at the time, but another old friend would be there,) where she told me she had “this cute guy” she wanted me to meet. That cute guy asked me out the same night, and we’ve been married for over two years now! I owe her a lifetime of happiness that follows a time of great sadness, when it comes right down to it.

Here are some pictures from last night:

She gave me this really thoughtful gift – a book, signed by the author, Chuck Palahniuk. It was around the time Mom was going through treatment, and he asked her to tell him something about me. She gave a brief (and flattering!) synopsis, and he signed the book, “To the best daughter ever.” He told her that he’d taken care of his mom when she was sick, too, and that he understood. How cool is that? I cried.

Anyway, I am so thankful for all of the wonderful people who surround me. All of them have changed my life. All of them are amazing, and even if they aren’t around on a day-to-day basis, they each have a part of my heart with them, and I have a part of theirs.

I hope you all have a season full of love like that. The love that just won’t go away. I’ll be gone from the blog scene for a week or so – the hubs and I will be spending time with family on all sides. Enjoy every minute you have with every person you love!

Share the Love,
