It was a really interesting weekend. I managed to get most of what I wanted to done and I think we’re in pretty good shape. I got both socks and the shrug started and bagged up. I decided to put each project in its own large plastic zipper bag so that if the TSA wants to go through my backpack they don’t completely fuck everything up. I still haven’t decide which of my smaller suitcases to take, but I’m going to take care of that probably tonight.
I decided to let Josh take tomorrow off with me. I decided I really want to spend a day with just the two of us before I have to go into extended mommy mode. Plus there’s stuff I want him to help me with. We need to clean out his car because I want to leave it at the airport. His car has full coverage insurance so I figure it’s safer to leave it parked out there for a week. The only problem is right now the trunk is full of shit. Gotta clean that out and get the car packed up.
We had a really nice time at Gemma’s on Saturday. Her puppy is adorable! Of course now I want one. This may just prove to be the incentive we need to move out of mom’s house. Anyway, we had a good time just hanging out and watching Game of Thrones. We’re talking about all going to the Summer Arts Festival the weekend after Josh and I get back. Gemma’s husband thinks it might not be manly enough. Whatever. I’ll kidnap her and take her with us. Josh is actually really excited about it.
He was actually pretty good this weekend. He didn’t drink Friday night since he had to get up for work Saturday morning. At Gemma’s he had a few beers but didn’t get sloppy. Yesterday he was fairly easy to wake up and we had a nice time getting things done together. He also finally painted the robot thing I got him for our anniversary.
He painted it to look like an anime version of me. He says now I have my very own action figure. So cute.
I think things are going pretty good right now. The mood has been fairly stable the last few days, and that always helps. I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m excited about the trip, but I’m not completely dreading going anymore. The better he is to me the more I think a whole 7 days together will be a good thing.
I really honestly don’t know when I’ll be able to write again. I might try while we’re there, but I might not have time. We come back on 5/29 so I’d say you can expect a post no later than 5/31. It might just take me a little time to get everything together when we get back.
