What a good week! July, you saucy minx, I knew you were going to be a good month. Now if only you could send some sunny weather instead of this cloudy/rainy crap we’ve had for the last two weeks…
WELL. Two bits of good news this week: 1) the honeyman has a new job lined up that he’s going to start in August. He’s leaving his current job at the end of this month, so that’s awesome and 2) we found a new apartment to move into at the end of August. Hooray! I’m still dreading the fact that we’re moving from a big 2-bedroom to a small 1-bedroom, buuuut it’s all so that we can start saving some money for a house, so I’m sure I’ll manage. I’m sure Gabby’s going to hate having a smaller apartment though. So much less room for sprinting around like a maniac. Other good things happening this month: 6-year anniversary with the honeyman, 10-day vacation from work, hopefully camping or going to the beach or something, and who knows what else. ALL THE GOOD THINGS.
I got to hang out with my sister Heather sans kids this week, which was hella cool. And she has now FINALLY seen The Boondock Saints, thank goodness. Now she’ll get my references. “Where you goin’? No where!” and “I can’t believe that just fucking happened.” and so on… Anyways. Shut up it’s a good movie. Also, my aunt and cousins came up from down south to visit and were here for the 4th of July, and it was just so nice to see them! I wish they lived closer so that we saw them more often. The 4th was a nice day – I worked (although work was stupid busy for a holiday) and then went to my mom’s and ate delicious food and hung out with my family and it was just nice and relaxing. It sucks I had to leave to get some sleep before going back into work, but work the rest of this weekend has been really slow and laid back, so that’s cool.
The honeyman and I just finished watching season 5 of True Blood – that season was shit, wasn’t it? It kind of makes me want to pick up the books again (I only read the first two) just to see if the storyline in the books is as annoying as it’s getting in the show. I mean it’s kind of sad when Jason is one of the best characters. And now we’re starting to watch Breaking Bad – the honeyman finished the first season and I have to catch up with him this week so we can start season 2 together.
I only went to the gym once this week… which sucked. But I was kind of really busy, what with apartment hunting, getting my car inspected (finally), and so on. I have more time this week, so hopefully lots of gym time will be had.
Bookish update: I finished 4 books this week! That’s insane. In all fairness, one of those was a 55-page novella (Brokeback Mountain, only took me like 7 years to get around to reading it). I also finished The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud, Full Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti, and Dead Harvest by Chris F. Holm. Not sure exactly what I’m going to start next, but I’m leaning towards Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson and The Pleasure of Finding Things Out by Richard Feynman.
So BAM! That’s been my week. Good stuff. I know, I’m just practically oozing cheerfulness, aren’t I? I’m gonna go bury my face in a book now… how are you guys doin? July been good to you so far?
