I can’t remember which of my bloggy friends featured the first brain drain, but I do recall reading one once from Alexandra of Good Day Regular People and it seemed appropriate given the mush in my head this Monday morning. So here we go.
This weekend was incredibly fun and a bit taxing but it’s nice to be out and about now that the temps are slightly above freezing. This may be short-lived, however, because they are once again calling for more snow in the forecast today. For f*ck’s sake, please remind me again why I live here?!
On Friday, Bryan and I went to a taping of Bethenny. I requested tickets before I realized that we were expected to be there at 8am. This required us to wake up at 5am to board a train in the pitch dark. After ten years of commuting, I have to say that it’s not something I miss much, BUT the taping itself was awesome and we got to see Constantine Maroulis, Demetria from Bravo’s Blood Sweat and Heels, an adorable chick from Guy Code, and some TV judge. Basically, I didn’t know half the people and there was a lot of clapping involved but her audience is a riot and I would love to go again.
It’s nice to be in a relationship with a man who is secure enough in himself that he doesn’t mind showing up to a St. Patrick’s Day parade wearing matching sweaters with his girlfriend.
I recently went to pick up food from a local vegetarian spot and ran into an old familiar face (which is not surprising since he’s actually the restaurant’s host). While Bryan waited in the car, he took the opportunity to recall how I used to come in to eat when I dated my ex. In what could have been the world’s most uncomfortable conversation, we laughed about how life changes and people evolve and relationships sometimes just fizzle and burn. I have noticed him give me the side eye ever since I began frequenting the joint with Bryan, and it was nice to get some things out in the open once and for all.
It’s incredibly quiet and lonely in here without Buster. It’s amazing what a dog can do for your mood and overall well-being. Bryan and I are going to check in with each other after we return from Nashville, but if Buster hasn’t been adopted by then, I think we’re going to scoop him up. We recognize that an older dog may be overlooked and we fell in love with the little fella while he was here. In any event, this little man will soon have his happy ever after.
Wishing you all a very happy St. Patrick’s Day! What are you doing to celebrate?
