Ahhh Labor Day weekend heralding the end of summer. Labor Day weekend and I have a love/hate relationship (you imagine your dog jumping out of a car on I-65 while strangling it to death as you grip the leash and not hit another car ALL IN SECONDS!) so I was thrilled to have a lazy weekend. Gualdoni took some extra days off, so I will actually be with my husband for a change (how will I cope?!) The weekend began with a bit of furniture shopping since we are now sans coffee table. I was very upset to learn that the matching hutch for our dining table is now discontinued, which definitely hurts my feelings. Can you believe how much space a person needs for kitchen stuff? Ugh, it’s sickening.
The weather was unbelievable in Indianapolis, so I actually used our patio furniture for a change. The only major thing I hate about my neighborhood is how the houses look so close together when you are driving around. This and the fact that EVERYONE PARKS ON THE STREET is what bothers me the most. However, I am so in love with our backyard because of the fence and general open space available. It feels like we are on our own. The little pond is a great thing to see in the morning. Sometimes I wish I was a coffee drinker so I could just go outside and watch Whiskey and drink some coffee. Just look at this picture. LOVE IT.
On Labor Day, I went over to Emily’s house for a little get-together. Jen N. and Dana also made an appearance. It was nice hanging out with some fun girls, but they all managed to get a little tipsy as I didn’t drink anything. We couldn’t stop talking about our high school reunion in a few weeks. It was a little sad since Emily’s divorce is almost finalized, and I just feel for her. I know she is being brave by being out there on her own, but it is quite a life change. I try to spend as much time with her as I can. She’s strong and doing great, which is awesome.
Gualdoni and I rented Kick-Ass on Saturday night. I had heard raving reviews about it, but I just didn’t like it that much. I was a little weirded out that the Kick-Ass main character had the same bedroom color (purple) as I did while growing up. Yes, it is a stupid point but valid. The only good part of this movie was Hit-Girl in all of her awesomeness. I thought it was a bit too violent and unrealistic when the bad guy was kicking the shit out of her in the end. I’m sorry, I just can’t stand watching a girl getting beaten. It was too over the top. I do wish my comic store had a milk shake stand. It reminded me a bit of Von’s, so that I enjoyed. Ugh. I did like the style of the movie, and it gives me hope that Matthew Vaughn will make a decent X-men movie. (I am still bitter he left X3… ick!)
Other than that, I literally played Lego Star Wars ALL WEEKEND. This game is so mindless, it’s addicting. Gualdoni likes to play it too, and we don’t have many 2-player games anymore. We have started to talk a bit about vacation plans. I thought we would go back to Vegas for our one year wedding anniversary, but we may not in order to save for a big European trip next summer.
I am still bummed that I’m not seeing Marina and The Diamonds on Thursday. Boo!!!
