On Friday, when I was struggling with my grief a bit, I wondered if the four day weekend would do me in. Especially when I started crying at my desk writing this post.
NYEBoy and I went to dinner and the movies for our date night. We had Outback and went to see Hangover 2. Dinner was great and the movie was hilarious. My only problem that night was when i bought my water at the movies, they gave me this tiny cup of ice that didn't even fit in the cup holder. I was so pissed. I don't mind paying the $4 for the bottle of water, but the least they can do is give me a cup of ice that fits in the holder. They wanted to charge me $5 for a normal cup even if it was just for ice. REALLY? I'll be writing a letter to the owner this week.
Saturday I slept in pretty much the whole morning. When I woke up, I got caught up on the Casey Anthony trial while NYEBoy did some running around. When he got back home, we went to dinner at Ted's Montana Grill. My steak was pretty much still mooing when they put it on my table and when I got it back, it was grey. I was so pissed because I have the hardest time ever getting a medium steak cooked properly. The manager took care of it, but I was still annoyed that I didn't get a good meal. I went to Starbucks on the way to to grocery store after we left dinner. I had my first sugar free drink there. It wasn't too bad at all.
Today I officially joined the church I have been attending since January. My pastor emailed me Friday after hearing I was still struggling with the grief and she offered to take me to lunch this coming Friday to talk. And yes, when I read her email, I started crying again.
After church, I went to Old Navy to get some summer shirts while they had their big Memorial Day sale. When I got back home, NYEBoy and I went to lunch. When we were done, we decided to grab a smoothie and went driving around looking at a few places. We found one that looks very promising. We have an appointment schedule for tomorrow to look at a place down the street. I'm pretty sure it will be narrowed down to those two places. We might actually agree on something! I'm hoping we will sign a lease within the next week or so.
I have a bunch of school work to get caught up on tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in some painting, too.
I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend.
