Listening to: The Killers - Somebody Told Me
I was going to write yesterday.
But I don't think I have much to say. That's rare isn't it?
Usually talking about events in life leads me to talking bout my feelings... and then it just goes and goes from there.
Friday, April 19th, 2013, I got off work early because a) it was totally dead at work, nobody had been in or called all week and b) it was my bday he said so I could go early. I went home and took a bath and watched a movie. Then I went over to the boys place cuz he only had time to get off work and go home and shower. He didn't have his car so I had to drive. We went to Murray for dinner at 6:30ish. A new place we never been before. It didn't look so nice on the outside, but the inside reminded me of Olive Garden. I had a noodle dish that tasted just like the soup at Olive Garden. He had a chicken dish and we switched halfway through. We had stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer. Yum yum. I just talked and talked. He got up like he was leaving after he got the check thing done and I'm still sitting there drinking and talking and he's standing there over me waiting. How awkward. I asked him to sit back down; I wasn't done. Whatever.
We had some time to kill so we went over to Lowes to compare prices with the fire safe Evan got me for my bday before I opened it. We just walked into the store and Uncle Neal attacked us from behind, claimed he heard my laugh. He came to get a faucet? We chatted for a bit. His wife said happy bday to me in text that day, he hadn't though. hah.
Then we headed over to Desert Star playhouse to watch "Less Miserable" a spoof of Les Mis. We got popcorn when we sat down, we ordered a peach smoothie and hot fudge brownie for dessert. mmm. The playhouse was funny. Lot of political and religious/Utah jokes. After the show they did the birthdays and I think I got called "Laws". Weird. Two big adult boys next to us had Bdays, I think they were twins. They did anniversaries and other things also. They called a girl up and said she won something for 'liking' their facebook page and ended up getting proposed to on the stage by her finance. Their whole family came to the show and had the whole row of tables in front of us. Now I know why. Evan said I would be so mad at him if he did that. I know how to act, I'm an actress! I'd prolly yell "No way! Shut up!" and shove him real hard and then totally focus on the ring too much before answering. But then afterwards, he'd get it... But yet, the show still wasn't over. They did a little extra bit at the end with a 50's song and dance that I wasn't expecting.
April 20 - Saturday Evan wanted to check out this dealership with this little mailed in scam to get you to come look at cars right and have the dealers shove things down yer throat. We ended up with $5 Wally card by the end, but we determined after three different guys came to talk to us and not one was competent enough to read and/or recall what kind of vehicle I'm looking for, that we did not like this dealership. First impressions are big. And three different guys offered me things above my verbalized price range and offered me bigger cars than what I said I wanted. 'I want a small car" and the reply is "How about an SUV?" Oy vay. I was done.
I made Evan go see the kitties again at Kitty City. Found a 13 year old siemese cat that let me hold her. Yaaayyy. She looked like an old distinguished old lady. She could wear pearls around her neck. The other cats just lay in bed and get angry if you try to play with them or pick them up. They just want pets. Evan says no to cats based on ONE flaw. Seriously. He drives me nuts. Cats love him and jump in his lap when he sits down but then he's too afriad to get them off him cuz they have claws. oy vay. You have to take some risks and deal with some flaws if you want a cat, there is no 'perfect' cat out there. Its so hard to decide what flaws you can live with though... Gah I can just wanted to take off with that 13yr old "Lady" cat and be done with it. But I'm not sure it will get along with Bella the dog at home.
Then we headed up to SLC to retreive some presents from Mindy and one Mom sent down. Mindy, of course, got me a self help book "to help guide me during this time of confusion on my life". The only books she gets are self help books, so therefore, thas the only book I'll get from her. She takes them seriously, I on the other hand, dont take them as seriously... But smile and nod. She really does try. I do love her. Mother listened to me and got me Les Mis I asked for! First time that has happened! Woot woot. She said she got me more.... I think she's really helping me 'be prepared' with first aide and 72 hour kits and fire escape stuffs. Yaaayy. Support. We ate their food and watched some of their movie and then we went to Wally World. I don't remember what we did the rest of the night.
Sunday April 21- I went to church the next day at what I thought was my home/family ward. But it wasn't. So I went to church with a bunch of old ladies for no reason. Smile and nod. Found the right ward to go to next Sunday. Went and got Evan early so we'd be on time for dinner for once. He was oblivious to the world with headphones on watching a movie. I barged into his room after his roommates let me in and he still didn't see/hear me. Oy vay. I could have totally robbed him and he'd have no idea. Grandma finally got to make her roast she's had since Easter I believe. Real potatoes and some ham on top. mmm. Then I got a brown and pink chocolate cake! Neal and Jannis got me a $20 gift card to Wally World. Yay! Jed and Patsy learned I got Lasik so I could brag. Jesse came by and we had fun with him. I told him to get me a bday pressie and he came up with a 5lb bag of gummies. Hey, he thought of me okay? It was awesome. We went outside to play cuz it was too hot in her house. She needs to get that swamp cooler going. I played with my baby outside. We had four dogs in the yard at one point. Jesses (with the same haircut as jesse), Max, Jasper and someone elses dog from the neighborhood juss walked up into the yard. It was fun. Got to play with my baby girl! I got pressies from Neal/Jannis, Evan, Min and Mom. Yay! Kirri texted happy bday on Friday and I thought of Aubree on Sunday. Then I noticed that Kirris new last name is Smith and Aubrees is Harris. Thats totally reminds me of Joseph Smith and Martin Harris! Anyways, random thought. They were meant to be.
April 22 - Monday I didn't know what FHE was and its not like my roommate was around to talk to me, ever, so I just stayed home and watched Les Miserable that I got from me Mum for me Bday. There are some bad acting spots and seemingly ridiculous conversations sung, but the actually songs are brillant enough to trump anything bad about that movie. Love it. I don't see a lot of movies that I say "I just have to buy that". My movies are carefully handpicked.
April 23 - Tuesday I went to the gym again. I think a week and a half after surgery is okay to go back to the gym, right? Wrong! My eyes were so dry the entire time I was exercising I was going to go insane trying to keep them moist when I'm sweating everywhere else. Gonna have to fix that. Other than that I came home with energy, limited myself to half a sandwhich instead of my normal gorging, took a shower, and then somehow ended up eating a box of noodles and never hit the 'full' level your stomach usually communicates to you. Oy vay. I need to call a personal trainer.
April 24 - Wednesday I was super bored at work. I wanted to read a book. I had watched all my TV shows and wanted to read. Now thats desperate. I did some more family history/indexing and we finally reached a billionth record. I was a part of that, thank you. After work, finally, the boy wanted to go to Leatherbys and get Sundaes for dinner. o.O Weirdo. I got a Quesadea thing too. Where I live its mexican food and then what the store normally sells... I got a banana split with chocolate, strawberry, and cheesecake ice cream with melted peanut butter, hot fudge, and melted marshmellow topping. mmm it was..interesting. I liked it. But it was too much dairy for dinner. Then we talked the rest of the night. I got him to help me around the house a bit and asked a lot of questions about what I should do with things my house. Talking about being prepared like the scouts with first aid, 72 hour kids, fire safe, reliable cars etc. We had a good ol' long talk. I was surprised his attention span stuck around that whole time.
April 25 - Thurs - Today I guess I will just go to the gym after a boring day at work. Stop by the new Wally down here on the West side and get some more eyedrops cuz I'm gonna use a ton while exercising.
Meanwhile, my roommate is totally absurbed in herself and is never home so its hard to talk to her when she is home and harder when she's not. I was going to ask her to start cleaning up her dogs piles of poo in the backyard. The weather is warm enough I don't care if she sticks her dog outside anymore. I was going to ask her to put her dishes away, off my counter. Most important, I want to ask her to turn her noise level down a notch or two when I'm home especially when I'm sleeping!
