My old friends all remember back in the day when I was with my ex and how unhappy I was. I often hear how much happier I seem nowadays, and I never get tired of hearing it. They love seeing me so happy now, and I love them for being so amazing and supportive. I’m incredibly lucky.
was super fun! I love theme parties, and I love how most people committed and looked totally 80s. We got to hang with our best couple friends, meet lots of new cool people, and catch up with old friends/acquaintances we haven’t seen in several years. Oh and there was much dancing. I have become the chick who loves to dance. ❤️
We ended up getting Taco Bell on the way home, getting high, and chatting it up while we watched DMB Live at Central Park. We stayed up so late, and I can’t even remember how we got to bed. But we had a blast and I just really, really love my life.
Everything is better with him. Everything.
I had a sort of epiphany last night and I feel kind of silly because it’s like: Duh, Jenn! Seriously…duh.
Earlier this week a couple we are friendly with asked if D and I wanted to go to an event this Saturday night. I told her I needed to talk it over with D, but she was like oh I’ll just put you down. Um…okay. I was feeling pretty awkward about the situation and didn’t particularly want to go because the male half of this couple tends to get aggressive when drunk. By “aggressive” I really mean he follows me to the bathroom and starts groping me then doesn’t want to take no for an answer. It makes me extremely uncomfortable. Obviously. But otherwise I really like them.
So I was venting last night to our best couple friends about how I wanted to get out of it, but I didn’t want to hurt her feelings so I guess we would just go and blah blah blah. Our friends were basically like: Fuck that noise. Just don’t go. You aren’t comfortable with the situation so just tell her you aren’t going. I was like yeah but what reason should I give her, and my friend is like: YOU DON’T HAVE TO GIVE HER A REASON. And I was like holy shit…I don’t. I don’t have to give her a reason.
I felt like such a fucking moron for making such a fuss (in my mind) about hurting someone’s feelings and making up bullshit excuses, when really I should just be like: Thanks for the invite, but we have to pass.
So that’s what I did. And it felt amazing.
If you want to say no, say no. You don’t owe anyone an explanation about anything. These are things I tell my own friends, so why can’t I take my own advice? From now on, I will.
Thanks to Ann & Rob for being awesome…as always.
And this pic just feels very appropriate. Haha –
Everything is crazy, crazy, crazy busy.
L is out this week and so the rest of us have been working together to do her job in addition to our own. She does a lot of shit, so this is no easy feat. I shouldn’t even be writing this blog post right now, but I seriously need a break. Despite how crazy things are here, we have been laughing a lot and generally having a good time around the office. However, there has been much venting and exclaiming, such as: “Are you fucking serious right now?” or “Lord have mercy!!!” or “For fuck’s sake”… just to name a few. This is done dramatically and loudly, of course. Haha.
Seriously though, I adore my staff.
I moved most of the stuff out last week, but I have still been making trips to the apartment to clean and pick up various items I left behind. This is stressing me out. I have to be completely out by tomorrow night, and will be making my last trip after work today. It’s going to be weird turning in the keys and all that, but really I’m going to be so relieved to be done.
is going pretty well, I think. Violet is still being a bit of a pain, but there have been improvements. The kids seem to be adjusting well. We are all a bit cramped though and can’t wait to get into our new house.
We visited the house last night, though we couldn’t go inside. It is looking so good. I’ve decided I’m not posting anymore pics on social media until it is finished. But OMFG it is so gorgeous.
I think we are going to visit Saturday and take some measurements so we can order the furniture for the great room and dining room. *squee*
OUT AND ABOUT
Tuesday night, D and I hung out with my bestie. We did some cleaning at the apartment and then walked to Urban Chestnut for dinner and drinks. Thursday night, we finally got to hang out with one of our fave couples whom we haven’t seen in forever. We took them to our regular Thursday night hangouts and much fun was had. Also, much drinks were had, and I woke up a bit hungover today.
I stole ^this^ pic from Rob’s blog, because it’s too cute not to post.
HAPPY FUCKING FRIDAY!!
