Happy Friday!! We made it to the weekend!
Today is an especially exciting Friday because it is Star Wars Day (May 4th: May the 4th be with you)! Joshua and I are huge Star Wars nerds. It’s actually one of the first things that we bonded over, lol. We’ve made a tradition out of Star Wars Day by turning it into Star Wars week! Tonight kicks off with us watching Episode I, and we will work through the whole series this week. It’ll be hard on the week nights, but with caffeine, we should be able to do it. Also, it will be so much fun! 🙂
Snapchat knows what’s up 😉
You want to know how much we love Star Wars? We never go to the movie theaters since it’s so freaking expensive, but we refuse to miss a Star Wars movie in theaters! 😉
Tomorrow is also Comic Book Day, and while that’s not really my thing, Joshua loves his comic books. (And has made sure many times to specify there is a huge difference between “comics” and “comic books” haha.) If we go to our local comic book store (which admittedly, I did not even know existed before I met him), they have free comic books with the donation of a canned good at their food drive. He also has a gift certificate from Christmas, so I’m sure he will have quite the blast tomorrow. And who knows, maybe he will convince me to try a graphic novel. XD
Work still isn’t available today so I’m hoping and praying they have it fixed by Monday because I NEED to work. I only got two days this week and that sucks! That like $150 I missed out on, because I seriously doubt they will compensate me. 😡
There is a silver lining, though. Joshua is out of hours today since he had to work so late every night this week, which means we will get to start our weekend early. He got cleared by his boss to get overtime hours this morning for a few things that need to be taken care of, but he’ll be home by afternoon. I’m hoping to get my classwork done by then and preferably some editing on my article as well. I’ll be free to spend time with him when he’s home early, which I’m very excited about.
Since Joshua will be off-work early, I think he will finally be able to pick up top soil, like we’ve been trying all week, lol. As long as I’m free this afternoon, we’ll put it in our yard and hopefully take Kona for a nice long walk to get her energy out before we head over to my in-law’s house tonight.
Kona and Zelda are both cuddling with me right now, and it’s the most adorable thing ever! Before we adopted Kona, Zelda used to cuddle with me every day when I worked. She stopped because Kona bullies her way around and Zelda isn’t comfortable with that. But today, she came back and I’m living for it! I miss cuddles with my kitty. ❤
I’m pretty sure Joshua is going to be home in a bit, so I’m trying to get all my stuff done too. I think we’ll be able to enjoy a 2 1/2 day weekend, and that sounds amazing!
So far today I’ve created our grocery list for the week, caught up on our budgeting, ordered more dog food for Kona (and opted in for the “Subscribe & Save” feature on Amazon Prime because why not?? We are ordering it about every month anyway…), and finished my homework for today. It was only hardly anything for school because I just had to review a peer’s essay draft in our discussion, type up some of my notes, and then create my schedule for next week: finals week! I’m so so excited to almost be done.
I also panicked because I realized that my brother’s birthday is on Sunday and I completely spaced it. :O So guess what we’ll be looking for on Amazon Prime later today?! Even with two-day shipping, the gift will probably still be late, but it’ll be close and that’s what matters. (My brother doesn’t live in the same town as me, so it must be shipped to him.)
Somewhat cuddling, lol
Once Mister gets home, we will be walking down to our apartment’s complex office for a number of things. 1. We need to drop off a check for the utilities billed through them. 2. We need to verify that our payment was received for our rent because they haven’t deposited THAT check yet and it says it was delivered. Our complex doesn’t offer automatic withdrawals for who knows why. 3. Finally, they haven’t been billing our pet rent, so we need to let them know. They didn’t bill it in April, so we walked in and told them about it. And yet, they still haven’t billed it for April or May yet. I’m not really sure what’s going on, but I don’t want to somehow get in trouble for not paying pet rent. Apartment offices are pretty much the worst with legalities and fees, so I don’t want to risk it!
Once that is all covered and we walk Kona, if we have time left before going over to my in-laws, perhaps we will start watching Star Wars!! 😀 ❤
Joshua picked up top soil on his way home and walked in the door at about 1 PM. We chatted a bit at the table while I had leftover beef stroganoff for lunch. Afterwards, we spread the four bags of top soil in our yard, but it turned out we needed two more bags. Since we had the time, we decided to just go get them, and took Kona with us. Home Depot is super dog-friendly, so it was pretty fun to take her in with us.
Once we were back, we quickly spread those bags to cover the rest of our yard, watered the seed, and then headed down to the office. Joshua made me laugh afterward since he wanted to walk through the Clubhouse, and we noticed a vending machine in there, out of which he was determined to get us sodas. Everything went just fine with my soda, but as is typical for vending machines, it ate our quarters when we tried to get his. He used the coin return and tried over and over and over before we finally got the drink. I’m pretty sure he tried at least ten times, lol. I would have given up, but he was so determined to get that Arnold Palmer!
We had planned on walking Kona this afternoon, but it was ridiculously hot. We knew we were going to be miserable if we tried to walk her and even though Joshua mentioned we could change into shorts, to be honest, I just knew my thighs would chaff if I did. >.< Most of the time, we like walking her in the evening when it’s cooler, and I’m pretty sure that’s necessary now as the weather gets warmer.
Since we counted out walking her, we came back home, made some popcorn, and started our Star Wars week! We’re about halfway through The Phantom Menace right now, and even though we are going over to my in-law’s, we’ll finish watching it tonight when we come back. We are such nerds, but it’s the best. 😉 ❤
We got back home from my in-laws about thirty minutes ago, and now we are settling down on the couch to finish The Phantom Menace. There’s a possibility that I may fall asleep since I’m always exhausted on Friday nights, but I’ve seen this movie hundreds of times, so it’s not a big deal.
Joshua and I grabbed Subway tonight for dinner and it was the worst experience I’ve ever had with Subway. We went to one of the Subways in town specifically because it has a drive-thru, and we’ve never been to a drive-thru Subway before. It turns out, that was a very bad choice. The guy who was making our sandwich completely botched it and it was gross. It was supposed to be a Chicken Caesar Melt, with provolone on half of the footlong, and pepper jack cheese on the other half. We didn’t taste any Caesar dressing at all, the bread was soggy (grossss), and I didn’t see or taste the cheese on either half of the bread. And yet, it was somehow spicy even though we didn’t order anything else with spice. It was honestly disgusting and nothing like we ordered. Never going through a drive-thru Subway again!
At my in-laws, Kona was better behaved tonight than last week, thank goodness. They rented the movie, “Hostiles” from Redbox and you guys…that movie was rough. It was so ridiculously sad and shockingly intense. Not a film I’d recommend.
As a typical American with the desire to celebrate every holiday I can, I’m looking forward to Cinco de Mayo tomorrow! I have a meal plan of fully Mexican food for the day, starting with huevos rancheros for breakfast, chicken enchilada casserole for dinner, and guacamole to snack on. I was going to make tres leches cake as well, but we didn’t have the money for those ingredients, and I’m pretty sure we would be too full to eat it anyway. It’ll already be a lot of filling food tomorrow as it is! Are you doing anything fun for Cinco de Mayo?
Gotta love Liam Neeson 😉
I think that’s about it for our day! I hope you guys have a great weekend! Ours will likely be full of Star Wars, comic books, and Mexican food, lol.
Until next time,
