Its been quite the week.
Tuesday: We saw a matinee of Breaking Dawn and I had to practice some serious restraint during the honeymoon bedroom scene. I found it to be hilarious and I literally had to bite my lip to keep from laughing. The whole storyline is pretty silly, but the 13-year-old girl in me just *loves* it. The movies leave out so much of the plot that if you didn’t read the books, you might wonder what the heck is going on and what Twilightisms mean. If it weren’t for Edward Cullen’s hair, I’m not sure I’d be as interested in seeing the movies. It is around 80% of the allure for me, lol! On a related note, the demographics of people there to watch it were interesting, to say the least. The party of one behind us at the ticket line was a man that had to be at least 65 years old; the guy is front of us—again, by himself—had to be only 20 or so. And since when are matinees $8.50?! Geez, I remember when they were $5 bucks!
And I walked to school in 6-feet of snow, uphill both ways. I guess full-price is now $12.00. Nuts!
After the movie, we went to BJ’s to stock up on bulk essentials, such as candy.
Wednesday: Light shopping at Target, Christmas Tree Shop, Nature’s Pantry, and Hannaford. Ok, maybe it wasn’t that light but that was my original intention.
This was my first time shopping at the Christmas Tree Shop, so I was surprised that they didn’t really have a super huge selection of, well, Christmas stuff. I mean, they had a lot, but I think I have seen more in other stores. However, they did have a lot of inexpensive dishes that I just had to buy. They have a great selection, a food blogger’s prop shop for sure. I’ll definitely return there for more kitchen-y things. That part of the store I enjoyed. The Christmas decorations left a lot to be desired, and I found this to be true at Target too. I was looking for more ornaments and Target usually has a decent selection, including Hello Kitty ornaments. Not the case this year. The only Hello Kitty ornament they had was big and rather hideous. It looked cheap, even though it was priced high for what it was. All of their other ornaments were tacky too. Some looked like they were from Amish country, minus the quality crafting and materials. I didn’t buy any and left disappointed. #firstworldproblems
Thursday: I don’t know, it’s a blur. My sleep has been poor lately, I still have the neck/shoulder strain. The idea of lying down is unappealing these days.
Friday: Rinks brought Tanner to the vet, she has a recurring mouth sore. They’re doing a biopsy next week. We also paid a huge chunk of change to the government for taxes. I always feel sooo charitable when giving money to the government because I know it’s going to good use and making my life better. <- SARCASM to the nth degree
In between all the other fun, we spoke with our real estate agent and attorney and mortgage broker and telemarketers and… and… aliens. Friday sucked. Business was good, though.
Saturday: Has just begun here on planet j3nn. I kicked it off with a rockin’ tuna sandwich and plan to head out into the concrete jungle to do some shopping. Not really looking forward to that.
Festive Tuna Sandwich
- Albacore tuna mixed with: mayo, diced tomato (deseeded), diced pickle, chopped artichoke heart, and chopped green olives and black pepper on a fluffy roll with red onion slices
The red and green from the tomato, pickle, and olives made it feel festive.
Going to get ready to go Christmas shopping. Yay. <- Sarcasm again
My birthday is in 9 days. YAAAAAAAAY! <—MOAR SARCASM
Dustin Photoshopped this pic. When I showed my mom she asked if that was our cat, LOL. This is totally a scene you’d see at our house. Sadly, it’s not.
