So, this morning I was running around like an idiot trying to find things. You know, things like my GLASSES so that I can actually see and not have the world all fuzzy. Well, I didn't find the blasted things, so I ended up putting in a pair of my remaining contacts. I sort of miss wearing contacts because it's nice not having glasses always on my face. I also feel like I can see un-restricted. Hmmm...maybe when I get my eyes checked out - which needs to have soon because I can tell my eyes are getting worse (UGH) - maybe I will see if I can get those new contacts you can wear for like a month straight or something. I was also searching for my cell phone, which ended up being in that bottomless pit of a purse of mine. Joys at 7 am.
Last night we (my husband and I) had a dinner date. It wasn't planned, but as I was driving home I passed by a good BBQ place that has a special on Wings on Wednesdays. So, I called him at work and asked if he wanted to have dinner there. It was too cute, him asking if I was asking him out on a date.
It was kind of weird being on an official "Date" with my husband of almost 13 years. Because we're trying to get to know each other again, and truly listen to what the other is saying and NOT just assume, it was a little bit awkward. Of course, I know I've changed a lot in recent years and he's changing as well, but you would think we already knew a lot about the other person. Ahem, wrong assumption. I guess I hadn't realized how much we've never shared with the other, stories from our childhood, high school, etc. Some things we knew, but it was nice to actually talk about things we didn't. It was also hard for me, talking about myself. I'm not quite used to that - and you would think I am because I blog - but in saying things out loud, for someone else to hear, it was almost painful. The emotional part of it was painful, as in I haven't talked about ME with my HUSBAND in a long while, and that realization hit repeatedly throughout the night, choked me up a bit.
But it was also really nice, to be talking and opening up. Painful but good. Heehee, gotta love oxymorons, Painfully Good.
And in other news...
My kid is growing up. Oh, how this makes my heart ache! He has a crush on a girl at school and wants to hold her hand. No kissing or anything (hahahaha, yet) but he likes her. Wow. This is a first where he likes a girl and got totally embarressed. He actually wanted to watch a romantic movie last night with us, so he could get tips on girls. It makes me grin and want to cry at the same time!!
Also, I was a Bad Bad Girl this morning...I got McDonald's. Coffee and a Sausage McMuffin (dollar menu items) but a lot of calories and not the healthiest. But damn it, I was hungry. I still weigh 235 this morning and plan on doing some form of exercise (does Sex count????) this evening.
I will actually be on my computer tonight, I have 2 books I need to download and read for some authors on GoodReads :) I want to be a Beta Reader, because I read a lot of fucking books!! So why not!?! and I am trying to delve more into actually reviewing what I do read. I also need to download my pictures off my camera so I can blog them, then post them on Instagram. I am slightly addicted to posting pictures in either black and white or of my cats on Instagram. Besides, who doesn't love looking at pics of kittens or puppies????
Work, well it's a coin toss between hammers, conversation and quiet. No headache last night, but I do have one right now. Blah.
I need a nap or more caffine or something....
