Friday Wohoo!!!

WHOOP WHOOP!! SO EXCITED IT IS FRIDAY!!! Means I can sleep in tomorrow and I don't have to come here. What does everyone have planned this weekend? We need to do a deep clean of the house for Thanksgiving! H who is finally home also need to put away the pool pump and some other outside stuff. I went to the jeweler last night to see about the price of my grandma 80th birthday ring. We thought we would get her a grandchild family ring, but it is way too expensive. So back to the drawing board.

JLQ: Boo for work being so long and before finals. Hopefully those it goes fast and doesn't interupt too much. I am sure you will rock the finals like everything else! If you would like to go to the concert you are welcome to join us. HAHA!

Re: Friday Wohoo!!!

  • TGIF! YAY!!!!
    Today was my day to sleep in and someone texted me at 7am. GRR. GRR to that person. I guess it's my own fault for leaving the volume on my phone but still. 

    I'm actually studying with another person today! Normally I study alone (because I don't like people) but this girl in one of the other sections of A&P who is also a pre-rad student asked if I wanted to study together so I was like ya why not. Maybe we'll become friends. lol

    Tomorrow we're going to the in-law's new house to help them unpack! This move has been a long time coming. I'm excited to see their new place! I know DH is excited because his grandparents will be there and his one aunt and her girls so it will be nice to see some family, even though we're going to see them next week anyhow.

    Cleaning your house this weekend does not sound fun! But at lest it will all be done then! Good luck finding something for your grandma!

    My grandparents 60th wedding anniversary is on Thanksgiving day this year so I need to find something for them.

  • Friday!!!

    My parents and sister are coming down this weekend. Dh and I have a wedding out of town tomorrow so they're watching ds. I hope to rest a lot and maybe crochet in the car ride to the wedding. I'm thinking of packing Tylenol and drugging myself to get through the day as pain free as possible.

    Happy studying jlq and yeah for cleaning degrea! I so badly need to do that! My mom has a family ring and I love it. I want one...must drop subtle hints to dh....


  • Who knew it would be so hard to make friends as a grown up?! 

    Echo - Have fun at your wedding! Did you decide what to wear?

  • I hate making friends. In fact I really have none.

    I think I'm just going to wear the same dress I've worn for the last few weddings (it is black with white polka dots and I wore in my fb profile pic a few pics ago). My sister is bringing black flats so hopefully some fit. I just need to decide a sweater to wear because it's gonna be chilly.

  • Making friends as a grown up sucks. It is very hard!

    Echo: My mom doesn't have one but if she did it would be so pretty. We are all Dec. or Sept. birthdays so Sapphire or Blue Topaz, two of each! She doesn't want one though. We were talking about it yesterday!

  • Nice. Mine would be ruby(July for me) sapphire (September for dh), aquamarine (March for ds) and then either blue topaz(December) or garnet (January) for this little one.

  • I guess if I got one it would be Blue Topaz (me) and Alexanderia (H). Pretty sad family ring, LOL!

    Echo: That would work. The jeweler told me they usually put them in light dark light dark order. I would have wanted birth order but I think that is me being me.

  • Oh I prefer birth order. My moms was in birth order and then we added my younger sisters and I (long after we were born) and they messed it up!! And we never got it fixed but at least were all there now.

  • HAHA! Well glad to see we agree.

  • My mom has a mothers ring! It's pretty old now because we got it for her forever ago. My older sister is an emerald, I'm aquamarine, and my baby sister is born in June but I think we used the alexandrite, not the pearl for her stone. And yes they are in birth order! My sisters and I stand in birth order in most pictures we take together, too. It bothers me if not. haha!

  • Echo don't feel bad, I don't really have friends either. I have you girls and my best friend who lives in Virginia and my other really good friend who lives like 3 hours from me. That's about it. I have a lot of acquaintances, but not friends ya know!

  • Ya I had a good friend who was even a bm at our wedding but we've grown apart a tonn somehow in the past year and talk maybe once every month or two. It sucks and it's definitely over how I reacted to her getting back with he bf and now fiancé. She hated him when they broke up and then two months later all was well...it was weird and I told her that. But I also told her if she was happy that was ultimately what mattered to me and then we rarely talked....I think also having ds grew us apart. What an awkward stage in life when no one else has kids. It's lonely.

  • I think my good friend from high school and I aren't as close as we were because she has a daughter. We just don't have that in common. Don't get me wrong, we're still super close and I love her and try to talk to her as much as I can, but we're at different points in our lives right now so it's difficult.
    I think that's why I've connected well with one girl at school. We have A&P together, she just got married this past summer, they don't have kids she's going back to school, too, so we're so in similar life patterns. 
    You're right, it is lonely.
