Things I Like

Yesterday the money was put back into my account! While this doesn't make me rich by any means, I suddenly felt a lot more free. I was able to buy us proper groceries (as opposed to the tiny bottle of milk, cheese and bananas that I bought the day before with what was left of my livelihood!). While I shopped, some annoying man parked his ridiculously huge SUV next to my little car. But he parked outside of this white lines, so that I had to squeeze in the door and back out really, really slowly.

This is a major pet peeve of mine. I dislike inconsiderate people. It's one of the worst offenses in my brain, if you knowingly do something that will affect others in a negative way but just don't care. I have to believe this is the case with people who drive disgustingly big cars but can't park them. In any case, while I was getting angry (the guy came outside while I was pulling out and I seriously considered stopping to yell at him-but I had to go to the bathroom so I just drove away.) I thought about how pretty the day was and how lucky I was to have a sunroof. This led me to thinking about things I like...which is a good change from being angry at the stupid man with a small penis. (I have to assume that's why he drives such an enormous car and acts like an idiot.)

So...with that, here are a few other things I am liking these days:


I know that I posted this picture of my cute B1 the other day (yesterday?) but it really makes me smile. Look at his cute little face! And his beautiful smile (which I get to see everyday!!!) and the funny yellow banana pants which he tried to put on with shoes in the middle of the store!

"I figure that if the weather is so bad that I have to wear these, they have to be bright so people can see me."

So. Cute.

The next thing I like also has to do with boating. It's the super cute plaid boat shoes that I found the other day. I haven't bought them yet because, well, I didn't have the money, but I think I'm going to. Since I'll be keeping B1 for as long as I live, that means I'll be on a boat at least a few times every summer, so I think I should have the proper shoes. :) And how freakin' fun are these? B1 confirmed that they are a good brand and he also confirmed that they were cool. Mine would be even cooler though, because the ones I saw were GREEN on the inside!!! So I think I'm going to get them.

Yesterday after work I went to the mall. I shopped and found these:They've very comfortable and were on sale for only $15! I have to admit, I look pretty cute today wearing them with my blue and white polka dotted skirt.

I like that it is sunny and warm out today.

I like that on Tuesday night B1 and I are going to a Sox game. We're sitting in the bleachers which, believe it or not, I've never done. I'm pretty excited.

I like that I'm taking Wednesday off to spend the day with B1. I thought that maybe we could go on the boat, but I don't think it'll be ready yet. But honestly, the fact that we will both have the day off to just spend time with each other is enough.

I like that next weekend we're going to CT to see my family and hopefully to swim in the pool. I like that we're going to see Rye Bread dance and then to see my good friend for dinner.

I like that the sky is blue and that there is a breeze.

I like that we have new towels, bowls and a rug in our bedroom.

I like that we are a we.

Picture Pages

The view from the library roof...where I have lunch often...

The view from the boat store...where I helped B1 get into banana pants by shoving his head down. :)

So freaking cute, right?

The view from our kitchen...the wall of shame. 1 1/2 of those is mine-B1 has another one to add to that pile too. We've been bad at moving our cars!

The sun is kind of shining today...it's strange to see it again! Luckily for us today b/c it's the President's Picnic.

Summer is Coming...Right?

It's been super rainy and gray here in the Boston area for the last week or so, and the end isn't near...as we drove past the salty water yesterday I dreamed of feeling it wash over me and yearned for the feeling of the hot sun baking it off.

I love the beach. And I can't wait to get there! I've been searching for a bathing suit for some time now and decided to order this:


I had a suit like this in the past and got tons of compliments on it-but I'm a lot lighter now than I was back then and I had to give it away. Hopefully this one will fit well so that I can put it to good use.

Oh how I can't wait to frolic in the sea!

Updates

Check your bank statements everyone! This weekend someone withdrew $500 from my checking account by making a fake duplicate card-they used my pin number and everything. AND I was using the card while they were doing this. Scary stuff. My bank is giving me back the money during the investigation, but not for 1-2 business days. So for now, I'm 100% broke! (I do have $6...) I've been racking my brain thinking about where I used my card and can't figure out where they would have gotten me. It had to be at 1 of 2 ATM's I use...when I filed a police report this morning, I was told not to hold my breath-they apparently never catch these guys. It's sad and I wonder how many other people they got.

Other than this horrible debacle, I've been pretty good. I still feel great-though I have had some more pain which worries me. But the pain doesn't linger like it did, so that's got to be a good sign. I still walk without wincing and can sit for more than 20 minutes without feeling like I'm dying. I'm still hopeful that this won't be a lifelong thing.

On Thursday B1 & I went to dinner with an old friend of his and then saw a midnight showing of Pirates. I wasn't going to go at first mainly because I'm not a morning person and staying out that late on a work night wouldn't be a good thing for me...but also because B1 doesn't often get to play with his friends and I thought that he'd like some time alone with them...however, one person dropped out and I ended up taking that extra ticket. I'm glad I went. I don't know many of B1's friends and the ones I have met, I don't know very well. I feel like I had more time to listen to her and to let her see who I am, and I had fun. And the movie was good too-though we agreed that it really didn't need to be seen in IMAX...normal showing would have been OK.

I spent Saturday cleaning and shopping. B1 was working on the boat all day and then had to work, so I was left alone to do my thing. Which normally would be just fine, except that we haven't had a day to spend together for over 2 months and I have to admit I was sad about the fact that he was working. I miss our lazy Saturdays with breakfast, cartoons, cuddles and random trips to wherever we wanted to go...or not. I always looked forward to Saturdays. Even though we live together, I feel like we spend more time with our coworkers than with each other, and Saturday's was my way of reconnecting, if you will. Of course we talk and spend time together during the week, it's just...different, somehow, to have a day alone. In any case, B1 surprised me on Sunday by staying home!

He had to drive to RI to bring the rigging for his boat to be fixed, so I tagged along for the ride. We looked around the boat store and then stopped by a flea market/fair that we saw on the way down. It was lame. Very, very lame. But funny and it was nice to walk around holding my B1's hand, knowing that he didn't have to go to work or be anywhere but there with me. When we got home, I made us dinner (homemade paste w/ sauce), we took a late nap and then watched a movie.

I really missed days like that.

Unfortunately this morning started with the both of us getting parking tickets because we didn't move our cars (street cleaning) and then I had to go to the bank and to the police station...and already, I could use a nap!

How was your weekend?
