Its Thursday. By this day of the week, my brain is fried and the last thing I want to do is write. I’m stressed from the happenings of the week, Friday is just a few short hours away, and it takes virtually everything I have to get out of bed in the morning. I hate Thursday’s, almost as much as I hate Monday’s.
Since I’ve decided to retire my personal blog for the time being, I’ve decided that Thursday’s will be my day for personal blogging. I feel like this blog, as I’m seeing it pan out is lacking in the personal, so I’ll save Thursday’s for the more personal side of blogging. I do have to warn in advance, I have a mouth on me. I’ll do my best to reign it in, but I’m not making any guarantees. If creative language offends you, please do both of us a favor and steer clear on Thursday’s.
So let’s get this party started, shall we?
It’s been an interesting week, to say the least. Joe asked his sister and brother if their various children would be in the wedding, we found out Joe’s mom and brothers are moving to Colorado, and for the first time in my life I stood up for myself and didn’t have it blow up in my face. Well, not yet at least. I have a sneaking suspicion it may come back to bite me in the arse later on, but for now, I think I’ll be okay. The important thing is, it gave me the confidence I would need to do it again should the need arise.
I found out my little brother’s baby momma (for lack of a better term) is having a girl. They seriously need to come up with a better term for women who are pregnant with children by men they are not currently in a relationship with. I’m not at liberty to discuss the relationship in detail, out of respect for my brother, but suffice it to say I am glad his bullshit meter is extremely in tune.
The wedding planning is going, well, its going. How’s that? Pretty low key as far as weddings are concerned, but still a fair amount of drama, namely over the guest list. Joe and I have been arguing over it, and I finally just had enough. Since him and my mom are the ones at odds, I sent them both a text message, told them to deal with it, and turned off my phone. I think I did that for my own sanity, because I was very close to calling off the whole thing and dragging Joe to Vegas instead. I don’t do drama well, and weddings are just magnets for drama. There is no pleasing everyone, and someone always ends up hurt or offended. I just want to wear a pretty dress and eat good food, is that too much to ask for?
This Saturday, Joe is taking his little brother to the movies, and I’m hanging out with some friends, hopefully. I need some time with my girls, hanging out and just having girl time. Its been forever since we hung out, and so much has happened since then that we just need time to unwind from all that. As much as I’ll miss Joe during that time, I know he needs to spend the time with his brother, and I need girl time. If it doesn’t pan out, I’ll get a bottle of wine and soak in the tub until my fingers and toes get all prickly.
Sunday we’re going up to my parents to celebrate my dad’s brithday. Since this will be the first time I’ll see my mom since I told her and Joe to work out their shit, I’m sure its going to be weird and awkward, but I’m hoping neither one of them makes a big deal out of it.We’re going to the shooting range first and then dinner, so hopefully there won’t be too much chance for awkwardness. I hope not. I don’t do awkward well.
All right, my brain is empty, and I’m on my second glass of wine, so I am going to cal it a night!
