Happy Happy Day

Not really, it’s Wednesday. But, I think I have Friday off–hurrah! I am going to use that time to clean the apartment, go grocery shopping and make a yummy dinner for Frank and me and possibly two of our friends. Good stuff!

Saturday, we are having a belated celebration of Father’s Day for my dad and then I’m getting my hair trimmed and going to my cousin’s for his graduation party. After that I am probably going to go up to meet Frank up at the Lake. I think we’ll relax on Sunday, enjoy the sun (hopefully) and then head down to Andrea and Dave’s for dinner. YUM!

But until then… gotta get through today… πŸ˜€

Lovely Weekend

So! We had some very exciting Father’s Day news–my sister-in-law, Kath, is pregnant! YAY!!!! This is baby #2. HURRAH!

Other than that excitement, Frank and I had a relaxing day of canoeing and napping up at the lake. We had a nice time with the family all weekend long. Woohoo!

Sunday night I stopped by Dave and Andrea’s new house. It is so adorable! They are doing their kitchen like a retro-1950’s diner, complete with black and white checked floor. Their new home is spacious and pretty. They even have a cute little fenced-in backyard for their doggie, Giles.

Anyway, very nice weekend. Hard coming into work, tho!

How We Say, “I Love You.”

This week has been VERY busy. I have worked past 8 or 9 every night and Frank has come down just about every night to pick me up at work and drive me home. What’s amazing is that he offers to do this and is cheerful (for the most part–his back is hurting–another story for another time) when he gets me.

Well, today, he met me at the station at home and told me that he saw that I took out the garbage and folded the laundry. It was really sweet that he noticed that I did that. Anyway, tonight he was going out with the guys for a couple beers, cigars, etc. I came home and turned on the light–the apartment looked amazing!!

Frank put away laundry, started a new load, did the dishes, cleaned the bathtub, scrubbed the toilet, vacuumed hte house, made the bed, straightened up the family room, WENT GROCERY SHOPPING and there were a dozen red roses on the kitchen table, freshly cut and put in a vase.

On the way home from the train, I was thinking aboutall the things I needed to do at home, in addition to some work I brought home. Seeing everything so clean and perfect–he thought of everything–was phenomenal. Taking care of everything at home was the answer to a prayer!

It was the most extravagent, beautiful, meaningful way he could have possibly said he loved me. So, Frank, I LOVE YOU, TOO! πŸ™‚

I Miss My Guy!

So, how is it that I see someone every day (well everyday, if you count “seeing” as when I jump on him to hit the snooze button in the morning)–and he is gone for less than 48 hours and I miss him?? Nuts. I’m such a sucker.

Train Rage

There are a few unspoken rules about riding the train. And there is one mighty rule that ruleth over all the land. The rule is: IF YOU MUST TALK BEFORE 8AM ON THE TRAIN, DO SO IN A HUSHED VOICE SO THAT PEOPLE AROUND YOU CAN READ, THINK, SLEEP AND SPACE OUT IN PEACE!!!

OH Good GRIEF. These women on the train, three of them, talked LOUDLY the whole train ride into the city about their kids dance recitals, day care, etc. They have no excuse–they also discussed how they take the train several times a week for their jobs. They should know better. UGH. Every time I would start to fall asleep one of them would talk even louder.

Hm. Maybe I can take a nap at work…
