Where I Have Been

Posted By on January 30, 2011

I’m pretty sure there is probably a post with this title already. Especially in the last year, seeing as my posting has become so infrequent.

Last week I thought about giving up blogging altogether. I feel like I have nothing left to say and maybe it was time to retire this site. I didn’t want to make a big deal of it, like half the internet does, because I knew I was PMSing and it was probably my hormones. And wouldn’t you know it, now here I am writing on this post.

I would like to have some super interesting story as to why I haven’t been writing here, especially all of last week. Something interesting like “I worked out at the gym every night and met a cute boy and we eloped!”

The truth is that I spent last Sunday drinking my face off watching football and started the day like this:

And I ended up the night in almost the exact same place – my bathroom. Although at the end of the evening I was praying to the porcelain gods and lying on the floor of the bathroom sans pants, still in my jersey. What happened in between was a lot of shots. And I’m sure many vows to never drink again. In fact, I haven’t had a drink since waking up on my bathroom floor without pants on, sleeping on my discarded jeans on my bathroom floor.


In other news, I am back to having a roommate. My sister moved back in on Saturday. But this time, she’s paying rent, has a job and will have to buy her own groceries. And it is just until the end of March. And I could really use the money.

I hope we like each other this much in two months.


Saturday I had a hair appointment. And I went from the blonde up above back to a brunette.

I really missed having brown hair. I just like myself better as a brunette.

(Side note: this is me, sans makeup, in the unforgiving natural light)


After I got my hair done, I went to spend the day with this baby girl!

We fed her those fruit puffs and she wasn’t too sure about them. She’s crawling now and getting into everything. She’s like a cat. The world’s most adorable cat ever!


The rest of my weekend was spent watching seasons 3 & 4 of Dexter. No, really. I watched 7 hours of season 4 today and only stopped because it tends to infiltrate my dreams and I wonder what Deb Morgan is doing in Chicago and why I’m working for a police department investigating some brutal murder. And well, that’s not my ideal way to spend my resting hours.

It also makes me think everyone is a murderer or serial killer.

Although this led to me trying to explain to my sister what “casing” meant.

Silly kids…

??So what have you all been up to? Please tell me it is more exciting than what I have been up to! PLEASE!

  1. Strep throat! Lots of couch time! Eating ice cream, catching up on blogs and becoming newly addicted to Damages.

    Dude! We both had PMS and went back to being brunettes during the same week. You are my psychic friend network. Though…I did mine on my own for ten bucks…Feria, Espresso. I paid for it about three times before I finally went, “Huh. This really doesn’t look any different when Keith does it for a buck thirty versus when I do it for ten.” So, there’s that.
    On another note, if they could reproduce and bottle for military application whatever it is that happens to me during PMS? Oh, honey….wars would be fought and won in days. Hours, perhaps…given the right amounts/types of chocolate. Of course, it’d be brutal, with lots of collateral damage and little regard for human rights (just ask my poor husband)…but they would be O.V.E.R.

    I’ve totally got you beat. What I’ve been doing is HOUSEWORK. Yay me.

    As for watching too much Dexter, the real problem for me is the way I start fucking talking like fucking Deb Morgan all the fucking time.

    Awww, I wish I could live with my sister. But then we would have to figure out what to do with our husbands and kids.

    The most exciting thing I did was go to the grocery store BY MYSELF. It was like I went to Cabo or something, I was so pumped.

    I’m thinking I’m on my way out of blogging but I truly AM making a huge deal about it. Because I like attention. Like you don’t know that simply by the fact that I have a blog in the first place. However, I am reading more blogs now that I’m not writing so that’s a plus, right?

    And your hair? Too. Cute.
