Just another confused little American girl… Rambling my way through the thoughts and the days.

My triumphant return from the South. June 27, 2010

I was lucky enough to accompany the boyf to his convention this week and enjoy some much needed time away. It was wonderful to put some distance between me and all of the stress that is my job and finally enjoy some warm weather.

I spent an entire day by the pool with a huge cup of coffee and some feminist literature. It was amazing, but I couldn’t reach the middle of my back to put sunscreen on so I have a wonderful criss-cross pattern burned into it.

We also went to the Happiest Place on earth! Since we only had one day to spend in the park we began our whirlwind adventure at 8:00 am and managed to do all of the noteworthy rides… The Matterhorn, Indiana Jones, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain (even though I always get me a rash on the parts of my body that get wet), and Town of Terror (my favorite).

We paused briefly only for the wonderful substance know as the Dole Whip. A.K.A my favorite food at Disneyland. We also ate lunch at the Blue Bayou which is the restaurant inside Pirates of the Caribbean with my two very good friends who happen to be at the park as well.

We headed back to the hotel at around 4:30 to get ready for the end of Josh’s convention… A formal dinner.  I had some trepidation about going to what was supposed to be a formal dinner after a full day of Disneyland but as you can see we clean up quite well. I am always very proud of the boyf, but this weekend I was schooled on what an accomplishment it was for him to make it to this convention. It also gave me a glimpse at how well his company treats their employees. It gave me some hope and a great sense of pride. I am so very glad to be back in our little house by the ocean.

So last week I was struggling with my inner Preach-a-saurus… This week I’ve perked up and started running again. With the loving help of the boyf I ran 3 times last week and once today! YAY ME! I feel so much more like myself. It’s definitely the endorphins or it could be  I’m super excited to go support the boyf at his convention! He is one of the top 25% doing what he does! Which is much more than being my best friend and cuddle bug. We get to go the the Happiest Place on Earth! And hopefully enjoy some warmer weather. In preparation I…  Errr he “bought” me a new swim suit and flip flops… 

There’s nothing more exciting than vacation. We’re going to L.A and the trip also coincides with his birthday. He’s so lucky, I “bought” him an ipad which he’s already  obsessed with even though it isn’t even his birthday yet.   Things are definitely lookin’ up. Now if only I won the lottery and could call in millionaired. I could finance a shopping spree at Anthropologie and buy the boyf his Ducati.

So I’m in a funk… I haven’t been exercising or eating right or any of the “things” my mother tells me I should do to keep me “balanced”. I mean let’s face it it’s soo much easier to come home from work and turn on the RHONY or NJ   any of the 5,000 other trashy reality TV shows I watch and eat whatever I want then it is to cook something sensible and go to the gym for a hour and a half of cardio. Me and cardio, we have a love/hate relationship see while I’m doing it I hate it but after I’m done I love it. My brain is one that needs the endorphins exercise creates to keep if from attacking itself with OCD and tormenting those around me with crabby and selfish outbursts. I know the reason I’m feeling the way I am lately is because I’m not taking care of  good ol’ me.

So this evening the boyf  confessed to be in a funk of his own and I go on and freaking on about what he should be doing and giving him advice atop my high horse. But I my friends and am an ENORMOUS hypocrite!  Why is it so easy to tell people to do the right thing, point it out and rudely inform them of their mistakes while blatantly ignoring your own? I hate the whole “do as I say not as I do” crap…. But I’m a serious offender right now. I guess all I can do is head to the gym tomorrow and defrost some chicken breasts for dinner. I hope he doesn’t see me as a preaching tyrant who won’t help herself but berates him.

C’mon guys this one’s interactive! I know I have readers… My blogs stats tell me, I’m not sure exactly how many but it looks like around 20-30. So hopefully I can get more than a few of you to answer to this one.

One of my favorite sayings is “actions speak louder than words” I know the boyf loves me and there’s a million things he does everyday as well as using the words which further emphasizes this fact.

Just to name a few that occured this weekend:

Attended a country concert (Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum)

Took my dog to Fort Funston and endured a multiple hour visit with my parents

Made me my favorite honey/lemon tea combination even though he didn’t feel good because I insist is tastes better when he does it.

Heated up my “warm things” (lavender heating pad he surprised me with from the Farmer’s Market)

Slept on the couch cause he was snoring so loud I couldn’t sleep

Fixed me coffee for me and left it on the counter after we cleaned the tortoise enclosure

When I told him I was going shopping happily assumed I would spend a certain amount of money and told me to go ahead and do it!

Held my tea cup without complaint when I decided to use him as my very own personal coaster cause I was too lazy to lean forward

When I said my tummicle hurted not only understood what that meant reached out and rubbed it

Sooo my question is… How do you know when your loved? What actions does that certain someone do that lets you know it without saying a word? Now don’t embarrass me! I better get some responses!
