The past few days at work on our insane job I've noticed something very disturbing.
I think... my body is no longer happy with my consuming cheese.
We know about my love of cheese right? Yeah. Of course we do. Well every time I have it I feel like a stuffed piñata about to burst. It's unpleasant. It hurts. For giggles I went a few days without cheese and have felt fine.
I know for sure it's not dairy because I have milk and yogurt and feel fine.
For the past two weeks I'd been feeling like my left eye had something in it that I couldn't get out. I kept dropping eye drops in it and finally made an optometrist appointment and sure enough my eyes are irritated. No contact lenses for a week and I have to use special eye drops six times a day. I thought it might be that my vision was going or something but I'm glad it's just an irritation and that I'm not crazy and imagining things. I'm definitely prone to freaking out about medical stuff buy my optometrist confirmed there was something wrong. Anyway while I was there, what else can a girl do but try on glasses? I've had my two pairs for about four years and I think it's time for new ones.
I like this one best. Doesn't have those ray ban silver things on the side.
Well I can't order any because my eye is so irritated that it's not giving off a proper reading. Maybe laser eye surgery would be good for me.
Branded: a fool. What will they say, Monday at school? SANDY! OH SANDY! Does anyone else think of Grease when they think of drive-ins? 'Cause I sure do.
Matt and I went to the Vineland drive-in so I could check it off my summer to do list. Did you guys go to drive-ins growing up? Matt only recalls one time in his life but my dad would take my brother and I on weekends and we loved it. I went to the concession stand area to find a bathroom and it was just like I remembered.
Before the movie started we had dinner on the cab of the truck. I brought the lawn chair pads and they worked nicely to cushion our tuchuses while we ate.
The show starts at dusk and there was a surprising amount of people there. A lot of them sat outside of their cars and while we did have the pickup, Matt wanted to stay inside where we could hear the movie better. It's $8.50 per person and you get to see two movies from the "comfort" of your car.
Comfort, hmm, not so much. It was a great experience though, nostalgic. I might try to talk Matt into it again another time.
Since my sister moved out we decided to upgrade our cookware and cleanse it of all pots that had been defiled with meat cooking. Matt was the final word on what kind of pots to get. He didn't want any type of pan that would chip and get into our food. In my dream world I'd get Al-Clad but since I'm not a millionaire, we went for the best reviewed and most popular as purchased on Amazon. Cuisinart.
I need to wash them and put them away but I'm so enjoying seeing them sitting there on the counter. They will never look so shiny ever again.
Gadget has been scratching himself a lot the past few months so finally we took him and LJ to the vet. Both were way behind on vaccines but Gadget has a skin allergy and had to get two shots and will be on medication for the next few weeks. He also has to go back to the vet next week and my beloved hubby's gonna have to take him since I work all day.
On top of that both have fleas as well as the dogs and I can't take them to the groomers 'til they finish their vaccine round.
When we let them out of their kennel when we got home, poor Gadget had peed himself and I had to wet a towel and try to rinse him off which he fought me for a bit before giving in. This is why I pay people to bathe my pets. At least I escaped scratch free... this time.
I feel so bad for them. Oh well, that's life with pets.
Today marks exactly 6 months away from my being thirty. I am so overthinking it. I even published this at 10:14am PST the time when I was born. I have 6 months to be content with where I have arrived in life at the age of 30. 6 months to decide if things are going to have to change and how I'd like them to change in the next decade.
But more importantly, 6 months to plan my big 30th birthday.
As the job I'm on pushes further into September meaning I'm getting more days of work, I start thinking about homey things I'd buy with my day rate. So here's my number one thing I want. The last item of furniture I will purchase while I'm living in this home.
I sent this image to Matt and the following conversation ensued. In this conversation he's the dude and I'm Nacho Libre:
I don't want to use it as a media console, I want to use it as a coffee table and was wondering if I was crazy. Crazier than the idiots that made aesthetic decisions and put xbox games next to a Wii. They thought nobody would notice, HA! Anyhoo... CB2 has a beautiful yellow sofa and they paired it with the ridiculous console as coffee table and my my don't they look beautiful together?
Have you guys ever been to the grand opening of anything?
Today I am waiting for the doors to open on 85C bakery in Hacienda Heights. I came solo and am feeling it, I haven't seen any Mexicans or white peeps. I could have waited but I wanted to be a part of the chaos. It's fun!
Good thing I brought my advanced copy of Susan Orlean's latest book.
