Well I had a nice, long weekend. I hope all of you did too!
On Saturday I did some leisurely cleaning and just kind of did whatever else I wanted at my own pace. That included going to KFC and ordering their extra crispy chicken strip meal with a side of cole slaw. I’ve had a craving for cole slaw for a few days now. It was all very good, but next time I’ll choose a sandwich rather than the strips.
My mom and I went to see “Ironman 2” on Sunday. We saved money and didn’t buy the overpriced food at the concession stand. Instead, I used a large purse to smuggle in some popcorn I made the night before, some candy and two cans of club soda. Nobody suspected a thing. Muah ha ha!! Anyway, we both liked the movie, but agreed that the first one will always be our favorite. Robert Downey Jr. looked awesome as usual and I kind of have a thing for Don Cheadle, too.
After the movies, we went walking on the nature trail nearby until it got too hot to move forward. So we turned back around and went to the nice, air conditioned oasis of Chipotle. My mom had a salad and I ordered a steak burrito. I meant to save the rest, I really did. But while I was clearing our food tray of garbage, the burrito slid into the trash as well, and I wasn’t going to go that far to retrieve leftovers.
Then on the way home we stopped at our favorite little donut shop. Their donuts are becoming a bit famous. They taste amazing and they’re affordable. Plus it’s a family-owned business and everyone who works there is super nice. We went back to my mom’s place and dined on donuts and coffee. Then it was time for me to head home.
Monday was another lazy day, and I was a little confused since we had that day off. I kept looking for shows on TV that are usually on Sundays. Then I’d have to remind myself that it was Monday. I think I finished up on the Eclectic Calendar and then watched the thunderstorms roll in.
This Friday I plan on going to a happy hour event that’ll benefit the animal shelter I used to go to for volunteer work. For $20 you get to mingle with other people, dine on pizza, wings and other food and then there will be free softdrinks. There will also be a cash bar for those other drinks. But the proceeds go to the shelter, so it’s all good.
I was going to go to a little concert 40 minutes away. The guy I’ve blogged about before is in a band, and I wanted to try to be a friend, live up to what I told him in an email saying that I would rather be a friend than nothing at all, and go see them play. I like some of the music they have on their Facebook page. Not all, but some. Usually they perform in a place I’m not familar with, but this time they’ll be at a more familiar venue. But still – after I sent him that email about how I felt (again, no wedding proposals, no confessions of love or anything, just a bit of honesty), and he ignored that email, I started to feel awkward about the whole thing. It’s like this…I’d rather meet up with complete strangers than see someone who I’ve met before. That’s how awkward I feel about him now. Awesome. I am so very tired of taking his silence so personally. I feel hurt and lonely when I think of him (which is thankfully not so often anymore), and I don’t deserve to beat myself up over it or feel rotten about someone who doesn’t think about me. It’s kind of weird to write that out on my blog here, but there you have it.
