First, I wanted to say thank you guys for the pep talk on Wednesday's emo-post. (Was that Wednesday? I think so.) It helped. Some days I'm wildly optimistic about my prospects and know that I'll look back on this phase of my life with a "oof, glad that's over" but happy to be where I am, mentality. Right now though, it just sorta sucks. and when I look at it side by side with my debt? sucks harder.
soooo I did what I usually do when I'm feeling funk-y, I scheduled a haircut. Nothing drastic, I am, after all, growing it out for the wedding. But my split ends are finally starting to repulse me. I think the last haircut I got was July of 2012. Yep.
The hot-messness stems from the fact that M gave me a ride to work today, and in the ensuing "Not used to riding to work together" morning, I forgot my ring, my cell phone, and when I hopped out of the car to cross the street to get to my building-- my lunch (in his car). So, TGIF! I am glad I opted to get a smoothie at Caribou this morning though (before I realized I forgot my lunch), something I used to do in high school all the time before I actually liked coffee. At least it can double as a breakfast, of sorts.
I do have a funny story though, that has to do with why M picked me up last night: we had our "FOCCUS" survey... which is like, a pre-marital inventory the church gives you as a part of your marriage counseling. We had to answer 156 questions on a scan tron that ranged from things like:
I feel pressure from others to get married. (Agree)(Disagree)(Uncertain)
I feel comfortable being nude around my future spouse. (Agree)(Disagree)(Uncertain)
Two comical things happened: on the front of the sheet where it takes all your demographics, it asks, "how many months have you been dating." At dinner after, M asks what I put for that. O_o.... um, what did YOU put is the better question. He says "30." I start laughing, because it's been 40. (all of 2010, 2011, 2012, and 4 months of 2013=40). That wasn't even a section we were being "tested" on and M bombed it. Wonder what the priest will think of that, haha. And then, M tells me he filled out the "cohabitation" section. Did I mention we're getting married in the Catholic Church? again. O_o. Our priest knows we live together, already, based on another form we filled out.. but M provided him a lot more information than he probably needed. M maintains he told us to fill out that section, too... I didn't hear that. So, we'll see who was right in a few weeks!
That's about it. 2 days, no pictures, not even apologizing. Sometimes I don't blog because I feel pressured to put photos up, and taking pictures, transferring them, and editing them is a royal pain.
Hope you guys have a good weekend! We have a MN Bloggers cooking class tonight I'm looking forward to, and the silent auction tomorrow night! Always a good time.
