Ready For The Weekend & Feeling Homesick

This week has been one. Nothing major has happened. I'm just over it ya know. However, for someone to be so dramatically over it, I've actually been pretty productive this week. We've stayed on top of dishes, laundry is done, did some returns, bought an anemone for our fish tank, shaved my legs, put addresses into my address book and we are going to a financial meeting later today. The return was kind of sad. We decided to part ways with one of the two blankets we purchased during the Nordstrom sale. It just wasn't practical to keep both, and John found a blanket he really liked from SAMs for a tenth of the cost. The only thing left to do for the week is to cut the grass. Yikes. That shit looks like a jungle.

I feel like I've been really emotional but not showing any of my emotions this week, almost like a zombie. Hey.. maybe my body is prepping me for Halloween. Lol. Jokes. But really. I've been missing home A LOT lately. I miss my dogs, my family, my friends, and I just want to go back. I want to sit in the backyard with my parents, drinking a beer, grilling, and talking about everything thats been going on, all while gettin' eaten by mosquitos while my babies are laying on the outdoor couch next to me. I love where we live, but nothing compares to home and the normal you grew up with for 26 years.

I am looking forward to the weekend even though I've got to work for a few hours on Saturday. I really do believe everyone is working for the weekend. John and I are going to a po' boy festival in Grafton, and I'm so so excited about it. I found out Grafton Oyster Bar actually gets their french bread from Gambino's in New Orleans! Whaaaat. Bring on the food, drinks, and sunshine!

Thanks for listening (reading?) my woes.  Have a good weekend y'all!
