Yesterday, we spent the day at the in-laws house. They have a pool and so we were laying out in the sun and messing around in the pool until around five or so. The original idea was they would grill out (since it’s against our lease agreement to grill on our little balcony), but we also visited Saturday and had steaks. So, we went out to Applebee’s. I don’t usually drink, especially not in front of other people, so I didn’t get a chance to try the Kahlua mudslide thing I saw. It looks like a sundae. I hate alcohol, but that looked tasty. Just as well, I was already about to pass out anyway.
The above picture illustrates what we did all day. Although, exchange my husband for me on the float and you’ve got the idea. I don’t know why I was so tired. I was tired even while swimming, I thought I’d fall asleep on the raft. Luckily, my husband was annoying me like a small child in a public pool, so no chance of that happening. He kept flicking water on me and threatening to toss me over. I warned him not to, I’d just highlighted my hair. I don’t want my hair turning green, thanks.
The in-laws wanted to see a movie, but they like to go to the theater at the center of town which is just a longer trip home for us. Never mind that we prefer the new, leather seats and everything theater at the mall. It’s also twenty minutes closer for us. We decided against seeing a movie (we both agreed we’d probably just fall asleep during it anyway) and settled on food. We stopped by Walmart quick to see if they had any of that supremely awesome Jergen’s Natural Glow… but alas, no. They’ve been out for over a month and just the fair. The medium is there, but the one I need? Always gone. Argh!
On our way home, we saw a rainbow. A weird thing to see, as it hadn’t really rained all that much so much as rumbled around. Still, it was pretty. I got these pictures while we were driving and through the dirty windows of our car. It really needs some cleaning TLC…
I realized the other day that my period was going to fall on the exact time that we start our vacation in Key West. Wonderful. I devised a plan to use my “period pills” a week this month and just keep taking the other pills into the other pack. Seasonique works differently in that there are no placebo or sugar pills. Even the ones you take during your period have hormones in them. I’m sure it’ll come back to bite me in the ass someway, but I don’t care. I’m not being miserable down there, especially not during my Anniversary. That’s kind of idiotic.
In other news, I just got an email from the husband saying that the girls in personnel had told his boss (the one over the position I applied for) that they only had one application and it was one of their girls. They claimed they never received my fax. Unfortunately for them, my husband keeps records of everything and has the fax confirmation and everything. So, his boss is going to sort it out. He told me not to worry, but… if they’re already sabotaging things, I’m a little concerned.
Especially since his boss has to go through them to get me cleared for the job. I don’t have a four-year degree and originally, he told me it wasn’t required. Personnel, who puts out the job listings, said they had to do a “form” type listing and couldn’t personalize it the way his boss wanted it. Essentially, what’s listed has nothing to do with what the actual job is! Still, if I get picked, they have to clear me. Buh. Nothing is ever simple or easy for me, is it? This is only the beginning, I know it.
I still need to exercise, but I’m so tired. I don’t understand why. I had the damnedest time dragging my ass out of bed this morning. I’m having a bit of spotting, too, so I’m sure it’s something with hormones and the Seasonique. Buh. I just want to go back to bed and curl up under the covers… sleep, glorious sleep. I don’t feel like I slept at all last night.
I can’t believe it’s freaking June already… and this week is going to breeze by due to the three-day weekend. Damn.
