I'm trying to think if anything interesting or exciting happened this week... Hmmm. Fara is here visiting, but mostly visiting her mom, which is completely understandable, but when she was down here last Tuesday and Wednesday, she hung out with us for about three hours on Tuesday afternoon and then said she would text me in the morning with what she was going to do that day. She was staying at Cherrie's house because Cherries has a guest room and we don't, but when she told me that she assured me that she would still see us, but then she never texted me. All day Wednesday I kept thinking I should go do something, but what if they wanted to play with us? So we just waited around, which was stupid. And when I woke up in the morning, I had gotten dressed thinking I would see her, etc. Around 3:00 I started getting emotional about it, which I knew I shouldn't, but I couldn't help it and by the time she did call me (around 4:30) I was too upset to meet her because I didn't want her to know I was upset and I couldn't stop crying! Besides, Ibby and I are doing Celebrate America (the thingy at Miller Park on 4th of July) and we had practice at 5:30 -- a fact I had informed Fara of the day before, so we didn't have time anyway. Blah! It was so stupid! I know Fara likes me and she wasn't purposely trying to hurt my feelings, I was slathering my neck and arms with happy, feel good essential oils, I tried to distract myself, and still I couldn't stop being upset. Matthew was very nice about it, but I'm sure he thinks I'm crazy. Around 10 p.m. I was sitting at the kitchen table sobbing and Charles came in from work. He asked what was wrong with me and Matthew told him that I found out about his secret. He stopped and his jaw dropped, his arms went up, what??? I started laughing so hard and couldn't stop -- it was hilarious! And finally broke my silly mood. So then I saw her on Thursday morning and she never knew. Yay!
On Saturday night I went to a baby shower and was talking to Melissa McLauglin telling her how much I love all of her clothes. She said she liked mine, too and we should share. I mentioned that it was too bad that we are not the same size and Sarah Patten exclaimed that since Melissa is pregnant and her belly is growing that maybe we'll be the same size soon. What the heck? I looked right at her and pointed out how rude that was then mentioned to Melissa that now I'm fat on top of being loud. We're waiting for the next insult so that I can have a trifecta of unfortunate qualities.
I took some pics of the house for a type 1 facebook thing:
