You know it's busy around here when I'm going nearly a whole week between watching movies and I haven't posted. So, what have I been doing exactly?
Tuesday my family surprised me by asking if I was going to Dewey to see Joshua perform in an honor band. Josh made it in an honor band? First I heard of it. So, after some schedule rearranging that involved cancelling dinner with Giselle, I met my family in a parking lot to head up to the land of relocated oil companies. 100 minutes of driving for a 25 minute concert was totally worth it because I got to see Doug. For whatever reason, I didn't expect the band teacher (that would be Doug, remember) to be there.
Wednesday Doug and I went to the mall where I made a formal judgement: it just looks weird seeing two moderately attractive, well-dressed men walking out of Victoria's Secret with purchases. It's none of my business, I know. One of them might be buying his wife a teddy for V-day in the hopes she will model said item for him. And maybe the guy just needed moral support from his friend. Maybe. But all I could think about was the two guys going home and modeling lingerie for each other. And no, Doug and I didn't go inside. We were walking back from F.Y.E. to my car parked outisde of Dillard's. I wouldn't want to "ruin the image" you have of a public school teacher.
Thursday I left from work to take my mentee to see The Sleeping Beauty. Ballet. The first 20 minutes were great and then I just wanted to go home. No such luck until 9:45, when it actually ended. SOOO long.
After our mall-going experience Wednesday, Doug and I came back to my apartment where I discovered three new dog barf spots on my carpet to match the two acquired from a month ago. This time the culprit was a bag of Chewy Sweet Tarts I accidentally left out. Previous spots were Abuelita chocolate drink mix Shelby found in the trash. Not a problem! I'll just try the Heloise trick of mixing laundry detergent with hot water, put it on the stain, and wipe off. The results were wonderful last night. Today, I have stain highlighters on my carpet:
They'll probably come up with lots of water poured on the spots. For now, it just looks silly.
