Day 35(ish) of 1001

My, oh my... How time is flying!

This past week has been a fairly busy one. We both worked full schedules for the most part. Trevor did not work on Thursday because he was sick. I think he had a virus of some sort because it started Wednesday afternoon and wore off sometime yesterday afternoon. He was running a ridiculously high fever. Proof? I "woke up" Thursday morning freezing. I honestly didn't sleep well the entire night because I was too cold. I have to be cold to sleep but this was just too much! So when I finally braved getting out from under the covers I realized that Trevor had the air set on 45 degrees! And he was still sweating. It was crazy.

Wednesday night was lots of fun. We hosted a movie night at our apartment. It got a late start because we didn't get started until after we all got off work. We ordered pizzas and what we like to call mocktails. We bought apple mixer and blue raspberry mixer and added sprite to it. It was an interesting drink to go along with the pizzas. One of the reasons we started it was for those of us who don't go out drinking and partying to have an opportunity to hang out. It also ended up being an opportunity for some of the people who do party to see that you can have fun and a great time without drinking and getting into trouble. The next day, one of the girls told me that the mocktails definitely tasted better than any alcoholic drink she had ever had and she was excited because she said she now knew there were better alternatives out there. Plus, she was glad because she had a good time and remembered it the next morning. It was a really good feeling. Trevor and I have decided to try and have a movie night at least once a week.

We have yet another long weekend off of work because of mixed up days off. But neither of us are really complaining. We slept in this morning. I ran errands this afternoon and Trevor headed over to Mickey's retreat to play baseball with some of the guys from Sunset. I took a little nap and then woke up to cook supper. The nap was desperately needed but I am wondering if it will end up being worth it since it will be hard to get to bed at a decent hour tonight. Oh, but I love my naps!

Tomorrow morning we will be visiting yet another church. Trevor and I know that there will never be another Pinelake for us. We are so ready to be home so that we can be really involved at Pinelake again. I am particularly excited about joining the choir. :) Tomorrow night we are going to volunteer with a group of people from Sunset, including our managers, at the Give Kids the World Village here in Orlando. I am very excited about this opportunity. Everyone says it is an amazing experience.

The plans for Monday are still yet to be determined. I know I have a "to do" list for the morning but I think we are going to play in the parks for the rest of the day. We shall see! :)

Right now, I am headed off to a bubble bath.

To come, an update on my 101 in 1001 and pictures from our birthdays!

Four days off of work in a row!

For some odd reason they changed our days off last week. So instead of the usual Sunday and Monday off, we had Sunday and Saturday. Which translates into both of us having to work on my birthday. Our manager Matt said that he would take care of fixing our schedules so that we would have the day off but there was a miscommunication and it didn't happen. So he gave us an extra day off... SOOO we have Friday, Saturday, Sunday AND Monday off. Day one is over and I feel very rested and relaxed.

We ran a few errands today and it was so nice to be able to take our time and not have a schedule to keep up with. We saw a few stores and places that we wanted to stop off. And we were able to take our time. Tomorrow we have to get new housing ID's, I have a package to pick up and then I think we are going to play in the parks. It is a great time to be in the parks because there are so few people and the lines are really short.

We haven't even talked about plans for Sunday.

Monday is Trevor's birthday(and Honey's!). We decided that since we didn't have my actual birthday off that we would celebrate them together which is perfectly fine with me. I have several things planned and many surprises for his birthday and I am really excited!

I am going to be a lot of work on my to do list. I have some pictures that need to be added to the computer and I want to do some digi scrapbooking with a few. Also, I am determined to make a dent in sending out Spence update/announcement letters. Yes, I still haven't done this yet. What can I say? Procrastination must be my middle name. ;)

But for now, I am going to finish watching Transformers with Trevor... and I may even take the time for a bubble bath and reading before we head to bed.

So I'm not very consistent ;)

I know my strengths... updating a blog definitely isn't one of them. But it's alright, since Honey is patient(most of the time) for my updates. I know other people read my blog, but they have yet to comment. This quite possibly might be a bunch of rambling, in no particular order, but it is all good.

* I made TWO new recipes tonight. I am rather excited. Dinner was wonderful, a twist to Poppy Seed Chicken served over noodles and cresent rolls. :) YUM! And dessert is in the freezer waiting for the next "step". It is a oreo ice cream cake of sorts. I'll have to let you know how it turns out. Both of the recipes came from a cook book that was given to me by Norma Jean, my great aunt(I believe).

* I have ordered two books through Barnes and Nobles. Hopefully it won't be too much longer until they get here because I need to read Austenland before the discussions start within our family book club. I might just be a little bit behind. But knowing how much I read I honestly think I will be able to catch up.

* Last night we went to Disney's Boo to You cast preview. It was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I am not a big fan of holloween but it really wasn't too bad. haha, Trevor loved it. We were front and center with one of the best views. Maybe I can post pictures later.

* Hopefully, I will be knocking a few things off of the list once Trevor's birthday gets here. The organizer in me wants to have everything planned out and set but our work schedule is a little uncertain right now so we will have to see. I'm sure it will be a great birthday for him either way.

* Poppa, Mom and the lil guys are coming!! I am in the process of researching what is available to them. We shall see :) I am just excited that they will be here with us for a little while. And I get to be with them when the lil guys experience Disney for the first time. The plan is for them to come sometime in October because we are getting an AMAZING cast member discount on rooms and the Dining Plan. :)

* I am about to watch a movie with my Angel. And while I watch that movie I will be working on a cross-stitch - yet another thing on my list!

* I got an ER(early release) at work today. Because of my spinal problems, every once in a while too much fluid will collect in my spinal column. But for some strange reason, it seems to be going into my left leg and foot. They went from normal size to double size in about an hour and a half. Needless to say, my leg is fat... and it is heavy, making it extremely difficult to walk and very painful... :( I won't lie, it was nice to be able to cook supper at a normal time and hopefully get to bed at a decent hour.

* Bright and early tomorrow, we are planning on getting my precious Patty towed and fixed. I am beyond excited. Being completely without a car, and relying fully on CP bus transportation, has been difficult. I am ready for my piece of freedom to be fixed ;)

I think that is plenty enough for now. Good night!
