I like writing about my weekends so you'd better like reading about my weekends. First of all let me just say THANK YOU to all of you who showed such concern for my leg. It's much much better than it was on Friday morning. I had my nurse aunt take a look at it and at first she was like OMG GO TO THE ER LIKE RIGHT NOW and I was like nahhhhhh and then Saturday she was like, "Ok you're probably fine let's just keep it moist." She didn't actually say the word moist, I just put it here to get a reaction because most people hate that word. But now I'm keeping Neosporin on it and it's not hot or itchy anymore so I think the chances of it being a flesh eating bacteria or a botfly maggot are very very slim.
Ok so let's just talk about some things. On Friday I took a half day at work because Keith was coming into town and I wanted him to have lunch with me and my mom, sister, and niece. I didn't take any pictures but at one point I did just plop the baby on his lap to see how he reacted. He looked extremely uncomfortable and they both just kind of sat there and then she reached for a knife and he succeeded in taking it away from her and not dropping her. It was adorable.
Then I was able to talk him out of hiking in the middle of the night so we hiked in the afternoon instead. We went up the really really steep way because I wanted to impress him but after about 15 seconds of walking I had to stop because I was pretty sure I was dying. I got myself together and proceeded to stop about every 20 seconds because you guys it was SO STEEP. And then later we thought it would be fun to go off the trail even though there are a million signs saying "DO NOT GO OFF THE TRAIL" because 9 years ago a guy died by doing that. But we just blatantly ignored the warnings and climbed over bushes and rocks and stuff and then we got stuck and couldn't go any higher so we went down and I didn't take any pictures of that because I was too focused on not dying.
Then we made pizza.
Actually first we went shoe shopping. For Keith. Because he needed new shoes. We've gone shopping for him like four times and you wanna know how many times we've been shopping for me? That would be zero, which is fine with me because I don't really even like shopping.
Are you bored yet? No? PERFECT BECAUSE I HAVE MORE STORIES.
We drank wine and beer (guess who drank which) and talked and ate pizza and you guys this pizza was AMAZING. I can't even tell you. I don't know how I succeeded in only eating a little bit of mine (because bread) but I controlled myself and I have like 70% of it left in the fridge and it's really hard not to eat it all.
So we ate pizza and drank the beer and wine and talked and didn't take pictures and then around midnight WE TOTALLY VLOGGED. And I'm going to try to post it tomorrow so you better come back. And then after we vlogged I let him read a little bit of my blog and I was really nervous but he said he really liked it so that's good. But I probably won't let him read it again unless I've had more wine.
I took Keith to the airport on Saturday to catch his flight to Alaska and um I cried twice which is stupid. First of all you should know that the airport in my town is TINY. Like, the check in, security place, and everything is in one room. It's so small. So we were sitting there waiting and then he had to go so we hugged and I just started crying and I couldn't stop and then I waited outside for his plane to take off and it was super hot and I was sweating (what's new) and when his plane went into the air I was just standing there feeling like super lonely and abandoned and I cried again. And then I left.
I made the cake and the icing again on Saturday but because it was really hot outside the icing kind of melted but it all ends up in the same place so I don't even care what it looked like.
We were celebrating my dad and aunt's birthdays and everybody was there but if we're being honest nobody cared whose birthday it was because we were all just obsessed with my niece. You guys, she's not even 11 months old and she's WALKING. By herself. She has exactly zero teeth but she can walk like nobody's business.
You guys this post is starting to feel really really long.
Sunday I was like really tired because after church I went to lunch with my parents and brothers and had a bacon avocado cheeseburger and I just knew I should probably work out because I did NOT have a healthy weekend but instead I just kind of laid on my bed and stared at the ceiling. Then I decided to go on a run so I ran a mile and a half WITHOUT STOPPING which is still a huge accomplishment.
Then I went to Trader Joe's and bought all fruit. See?
Then I got all artsy and took this picture of the pineapple. I don't even know why I bought the pineapple. I mean, I like pineapples but it just feels like it's going to be a lot of work to cut it and make it edible. Also after I Instagrammed this picture I realized that in my effort to get a cool plain background I got a little bit of my doorknob in the picture. And now I can't unsee it and a large part of me wants to delete this picture but I just can't. I feel like this could be a really good metaphor for LIFE like how you try to make everything seem great but sometimes there are little pieces that you try to hide that start to sneak onto your life stage and you can't help it and I'm going to stop rambling now because I need some coffee goodbye.
