What’s up, party people? It’s a rainy, dreary Sunday morning here in Raleighwood, and I’m feeling mellow and chatty. I figured it was a good time to hop on the old blog and write an update.
So, the boyfriend is at his mom’s this weekend being her houseboy, which I think is so sweet. He cleaned the gutters and roof, is doing other yard work and bought her a spa package. It’s her birthday, you see, and in addition to being a wonderful son, he’s going to drop the Living In Sin Bomb. Yikes. I’m really anxious about the whole thing. I like his mom a lot – she’s very witty and sarcastic and we get along well – and I can’t help but feel like she’s going to hate me for a while, and that sucks.
We’ve basically been selling all our worldly possessions on Craig’s List and it’s been a huge pain in the ass. You see, we’ve both sort of set up homes for ourselves with everything we needed furniture-wise, etc, and now that we’re combining households, we literally don’t need half the things we have. Thus Craig’s List. It’s been awesome for me because I use whatever I get on Facebook to buy fun things for the house, but fielding inquiries, setting up appointments, giving directions, hopping back and forth from residence to residence has been a hassle. I’m so busy, you’d never know I technically have at least nine hours at my disposal every week day.
Yesterday someone bought Allan’s entertainment unit downstairs, so wires and DVDs and other random stuff is laying all over the floor. Plus Allan’s not here, so it doesn’t feel like home AT ALL. And my apartment is in shambles, boxes and furniture scattered around, so it also doesn’t feel like home. So last night I babysat Kristen’s kids while they went to the movies, and their house felt more like home than anywhere else in Raleigh, so I slept there in a pair of running shorts and a t-shirt. I’m so lucky to have my best friend live right down the street. One of the benefits of moving to the boyfriend’s is that he’s closer to not only Kristen, but to Shel and Tiffany, too. They also came to my rescue yesterday by being here when the entertainment unit was sold. Tiffany gave me moral support (it’s always weird when people buy things from you) while Shel helped do all the heavy lifting. I couldn’t have gotten through yesterday without any of them and I’m super grateful.
On Friday I went for a fun, nature-filled walk and had lunch with my newest buddy, Casper (aka Wendy), and today I’m supposed to have lunch with Tylila and Quri, so it’s been a friend-filled weekend, which has been great. The reason I say SUPPOSED to have lunch is because Quri is notorious for either not showing up or being like 30 mins late. Ty is headed off to Argentina for the summer and Quri moved to Richmond, so if the three of us don’t get together today, it won’t happen until the fall. Oh, the three of us all worked for – and left of our own accord – SRC. I’ve been sort of screwed job-wise, but I can happily say I still have friends from nearly every one of them.
This is so pathetic because I just saw him yesterday morning, but I miss my boyfriend. I can’t wait till he gets home.
