Five on Friday #133
EINS - Random things-I've gained 5-7 lbs since the wedding. The only thing I've really changed is that I started drinking coffee every day and that includes a metric ton of peppermint mocha creamer. I have a feeling the coffee is going to have to go. The only reason I actually drink coffee is for the creamer. So ya know.. I did this to myself.
-Sickness is horrible. Lingering sickness is the worst. Coughing and/or sneezing so hard you pee a little is the absolute worst.
-Returning items to the store brings me great joy because money saved. That said, maybe I should just stop buying things and then I could save myself a trip?
-When Husband takes the last of the Dayquil and you discover it, rather than him telling you, it's good that he's already Husband....
-Our wedding photos bring me joy. Deciding which ones to print for our "shrine" does not bring me joy. Paying someone $10 to design a photobook brings me joy. No code for free pages does not bring me joy. #ItsAllAboutBalance
-I've dedicated some time to planning the honeymoon. I prioritized and I'm thinking we'll be spending a weekish in Cairns for diving and a weekish in Sydney for touring and potentially hanging out with Erin and taking a few days to see Uluru (maybe). Uluru is least important to me, but I'm going to talk to Timo about it and see how important it is to him before I slash it from the itinerary since it requires a flight and it's a red rock, which is cool, but not SO cool that I need to pay a lot of extra money when I could be spending that time diving with the fishies or in Sydney doing thangs.
-Saw this quote on Facebook that said, "If you can't say it without cuss words..." with a picture of a child going "shhhhh".. and all I could think was, "Megan, DO NOT RESPOND TO THAT, even if your first thought was, 'I CAN say it without cuss words, I just choose not to. It's a damn shame, I know, bless my heart.'"
-I spent most of the day yesterday trying to untangle Australia deets. Seriously yall.. pulling the trigger is the most difficult thing ever. I'm paranoid that if I make ONE reservation that nothing else will line up and everything will be fucked up and UALFKJELJGBOISDJVOIermgailejmrgoiajdv;oiajdc WHAT DO I DO THEN!?!?! When, in reality, I realize that is completely ridiculous and I should just bite the bullet and plan activities in order of most important to least and shit will shake out. I know it will, but faaacckkk if my control-freak brain could just be distracted by those potential science classes next semester instead of worrying about this for a little while so I can actually make shit happen, that'd be grrrrrreeeaaatt...
-Scheduling a #TreatYoSelf spa day. It includes a hour and a half massage plus a 30 minute head massage. #IMSOEXCITED #TAKEMYMONEY
ZWEI - Money spent-Billz billz billz... from all those credit card expenses last month. It should balance out after all my returns go through.
-i5K, a local run I've been wanting to do for years but never knew the date for. This year I was stalkin' like a boss.
-bull dicks (some people call these bully sticks, but lets just call a spade a spade) for the dogs. If we ever run out, the dogs will probably eat all our shoes.
-shipping for Cmas packages to Teh Sister, Teh Dad, and Teh Mom. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.
-McDonald's to remedy a hangover #adulting
-all the motherfucking cough syrup/cold medicine.... x2.
-Sam's for brussel sprouts and steaks. If the butcher wasn't closed on Monday's this wouldn't have to be a thing.
-breakfast croissant from the deli down the street, I've been wanting to try for a while.
-Termite treatment for House
-Yurtle's insurance, which I'm 85% sure I just paid. Ugh.
-Wedding photo prints.
-Photo books of wedding photos... ouch.
-Chiro (it's been rough around here)
DREI - Things from my phone
It's like me and Teh German!
|What kind of motorcycle does Santa ride?|
a Holly Davidson
|What do you call an elf who wins the lottery?|
|Nurse Meri and Nurse Pax were on duty when I went home early from work with sickness.|
VIER - Things from the InternetTHIS THIS THISSSSSSSSS. Liz James gives the perfect analogy for why women may not speak up.
Audiobooks really cut into my music listening time, but I'm not a little bit sorry. But when I saw Brianne post her Spotify stats, I knew I wanted to, too.
|PS this is 17 days.|
It doesn't count time that Teh German played Spotify at home...
Want to share my music journey? Hit play. You're welcome.
As compared to my audiobook time?
I could share all my Australia research sites, but I know you're not overly interested in that. As (another) Christmas present to myself, I am sticking my head in the sand until 2018 because the world is horrible and our government is garbage and my heart hurts.
FÜNF - Things that made me happy this week
- Bumping up my hair appointment (top two rows of not crazy colors) to today!
- SPA DAY TOMORROW! It's going to be glorious. #TreatYoSelf
- Teh German telling me he trusts me instead of wanting to review my selections for the photobook/printed photos.
- Roux's Humom walking her dogs frequently during the day and bringing our delivered packages inside for us so they don't burgled.
- FINALLY not feeling like death.
- Wearing my new shirts to work.
- Mad Men marathons with Teh German.
- Teh German picking up cooking skillz.
- Return of cool temps. 70°+ on Christmas is the ultimate disappointment.
- Wrapping Christmas presents so I don't have to worry about it no mo!
Happy Friday, Gentle Readers.
