Let the explaining begin....


So what happens when you have wayyy too much to do & only 2 days & 1 night to do it in? Chaos & a lot of laughs. This weekend I really felt like I was trapped in the movie, “Forces of Nature” & “Meet the Parents” because everything that could go Wrong did & then some. It did have some very nice moments but others I almost lost my cool. Well let’s get started.

Part I: CJ on Friday night had to babysit this darling boxer doggie & I came along for the ride. Things were going great we were chilling by the pool, drinking some beer, playing with the dog, & just enjoying ourselves. The owners wanted us to stay over at the house to walk the dog in the morning so we were like awesome okay. That’s where we got in trouble….We got dressed for bed & then CJ went outside for a cigarette and I decided to go out with him……….I closed the door behind me. To which CJ turns to me & says, “You did not just close that door. We’re now locked out.” I freaked. I locked us out because I didn’t realize the door opens from the inside but is still locked on the outside. No phones, no keys, no shoes, & middle of the night. FUCK!!!

I cried. We started trying all the windows & the other doors, but alas everything was LOCKED! I swear there was some angel watching out for us. We noticed that one of the window panes was a lil loose. They had a gardening shed open so we used a gardening shovel to get in the crease. We pried it open by delicately prying open the other window. I still can’t believe we got back in the house. I will never be babysitting the dog again.


Part II: Let the interrogating begin. We both had family functions so we kinda equally got to go to each others & both got the dose of 20 questions from each other’s family. I do honestly think we are moving too fast with the family stuff. We’ve only been dating 3 months & I’ve already been told I’m in his family Secret Santa for Christmas. Uhhhh…Yes I’m intimidated. I told him that tho. He said it’s okay. It was his cousin’s 40th birthday & my grandfather’s 88th birthday. Both parties were nice. I think we are slowly sliding more into each other’s lives & honestly I’ve never had this. It’s new. My head hurts from being asked so many questions but that’s typical of families. All in all it was successful. My family loves him. Whew! What a load off. I like his too.


Part III: Then came the rain. I don’t think you’re a honest couple until you’ve gone through lil hardships & ran from the car for your dry life into the mall. I got soaked to the bone. My hair was once straight today but it proceeded to curl up. It’s okay tho he thought it was funny. We got into the Bed, Bath, & Beyond & literally had to ring out our clothes. We just stared at each other for a minute & laughed so hard. This was a crazy weekend of non-stop go-go-go. We came to an agreement that we’re going to have to find time for ourselves that isn’t just napping. Some cool down, relaxing time is definitely needed. I’ve never been more tired.

I did it. I stuck by the whole weekend. Wow. I guess this is where the A.D.H.D. kicks in. Thankfully it did. It’s still raining here now so hopefully it will tamper off. I’m exhausted. This week is going to be a busy one but tomorrow I’m writing about the demo I went to. I made some cool stuff I can’t wait to share. See you all tomorrow! =)
