updaty date

Well, all is well in the world tonight. Sorta. I must rewind to Sunday.

Sunday: Carl and I had a solo lunch at my fav. Macaroni Grill. Love their bread. Anyway, by the time we got home his grumpy mood had rubbed off on me and we ended up sleeping the afternoon away and hoping our attitudes would change. They did thanks to a 3 hour nap. Love you cloudy days. THEN, there was Kaleo where my hero Judy spoke and killed it. She seriously makes me want to be Christian. She is so Mother Teresa it's encouraging. However, I was struggling pre-service because I realized that having married friends and friends that live far away is a bummer. No one has time to hang out or run to Sonic or watch Greys on abc.com or be so incredibly hyper and laugh till you pee your pants or talk crap on your housemates America's Next Top Model style. So, I decided I needed friend time soon or i was going to be sad. Then, my loves Greg and Susan stopped by and after some chit chat, name calling, and hugs the once grumpy mood was gone. My other love Kaleb (bridesman, love him) came over and chilled at our bomb house and we saved the world.

Monday: Cool married friends Josh and Katie came over and we had a home-cooked meal of spaghetti, salad, bread, and dr pepper. awesome! Then we just hung out and tried to solve Katie's pinched nerve medical mystery. (We didn't quite solve it.) After this, I went to Bennett's house (my LOVE and one of my bridesmaids) and we watched "The Hills" and I don't care how many comments I get. I love the Hills and get over it. I needed a loud Benny hello and a hug and some friend time. After the show, we chatted and I left only to call Gatlin (my LOVE too and other bridesmaid) in Michi to tell her that she should move back to the 405 so I can see her face. We ended up talking for an hour (which is years in "i'm not a phone-talker" time) and it was also what I needed. It was so great to fill up on friend love.

Tuesday: I got my social security card in the mail today. This is good because if i DO get a job soon (siiiiiiiigh) then I'll have the proper paperwork instead of launching into the "my purse got stolen and it was in my wallet" story, which I appreciate. I watched some ANTM to remind myself that my life kicks and has very little drama. Then, Carl and I went to Greg and Susan's for SALMON! (Please sing the word Salmon) and to catch up. It turned into a 3 hour dinner which was a breath of fresh air. I love the way I laugh with Greg and Susan. It is that belly laugh that you really mean. Then, it was Thomas's Homecoming at the Airport! We picked up T-town and have been living it up back in the bomb house where Thomas is wrestling with Bauer on the hardwood floor.

Well.....That is all for now. Still no word from DHS about a job. I'm going to call and ask tomorrow though so that I can get on with my life. Tomorrow is full of helping Thomas move, having lunch w/Kendra @ Camille's, and picking up the beloved Taylor and Drew from school. Then more church.

Much Love.

ps, i think the "hungry like a wolf" old spice commercial is hilarious.

Everyone deserves a nickname. Some rules for nicknames:
1. You are not allowed to give yourself a nickname.
2. If you move or transition in life (perhaps from high school to college), you can't take along your old nickname, unless those around you give you the same nickname you had in your old phase of life.
3. You do not need to explain the origin of your nickname to everyone who asks.
4. You can't go around calling someone their nickname without their permission. If you don't have a relationship with someone, you should probably call them "Chris" and not "Spanky".
5. A nickname should not be forced or manufactured. It should just happen.
