>This time last week Joshua and Van (my father-on-law) departed on their 9 day trek to Vegas and back! It has been interesting…and a little lonely…living on my own. I’ve gotten to catch up on all of my girly tv shows, which include…but are not limited to…Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, and the new episode of the Bachelorette! Last Monday I totally vegged in front of the tv for all 3 of these shows, it was awesome! I’ve also spent some time reading, cleaning, resting, and exercising. Last week I walked to the grocery store to grab dinner, something that was actually really rewarding. The weather here has been so gorgeous..so I’ve tried to spend as much time outside as possible. After teaching on Thursday I spent some time relaxing pool side, getting a start on my summer tan.
I was also able to catch up with some dear friends! This week I had some lengthy phone calls with Sarah, Emily, and Hawley!! I definitely don’t get to talk with these girls enough, so it was nice to be able to sit on the couch and chat with no time limitations. Haha, that makes it sound like Joshua sits there and times my phone calls..totally not the case. But, when we are home together I usually don’t answer my phone and just enjoy my time with him.
My weekend was spent being a total bum. I rented “The Reader” and the old “Marie Antoinette” film with Kirsten Dunst and also watched a few movies that came on TBS. “The Reader” was very interesting, though I have to admit I fell asleep towards the end..it got a little slow. “Marie Antoinette” was SUPER slow..and though the costumes and music were awesome…it was kind of a waist of a rent. I did get some exercise in this weekend, which is always good. I also spent some time by the pool, and then Sunday I went in to work.
Though I’ve enjoyed the time alone…I defintely prefer living life with Joshua and having someone to spend my time with every evening. 9 days has definitely been a little too long to be seperated, but I’m glad Joshua and his dad were able to take this trip together. I know it’ll be a great memory to look back on.
Well..that’s it for now! Next week I head to Atlanta for Beth’s wedding!! I can’t wait to be there for her and share in such a special event. I’m also really excited to see all of my dear friends from UGA! I’ll also be celebrating my BIRTHDAY next Wednesday! Woo hoo for 24!
