Amazingly, Brian and I survived our first week on opposing schedules. It’s really tough. Staying up, even just to 1:00 AM has started to take its toll on me. I couldn’t even imagine staying up until 3:00 AM as Brian does! That would just be unbearable. I would be beyond cranky. Anyhow, Jen kept me company most of last week. We hung out while I waited for Brian to come home on a couple of nights. There was one night last week that he was actually able to leave work at around 9:30 PM. That was kind of nice. He gets to leave at 10:00 PM tonight. What a treat!
The weekend has been quite eventful. Brian was off on Friday and I had to work. Blech! I got him some movie passes from work so he wouldn’t be bored. That day, he met his dad at Shooters for lunch and for pool. They ended up going to see The Tuxedo together. Dave, my father in-law, is a major Jackie Chan fan. I love Jackie Chan, but I’m content waiting for the DVD release. It was a major movie weekend for Brian because later that night, after he picked me up from work, we went to dinner and then watched White Oleander. On Sunday, we were back at the theater again for Ghost Ship. We watched it at the balcony so we had dinner right before the movie and through the previews and then I got to enjoy my mango margarita during the show. We’ve been so spoiled with watching movies at the balcony of the 13th Avenue Warren that we almost loathe watching movies in the regular theater these days. It’s just not same.
Brian had to work on Saturday so I spent most of the day with Jen. We went shopping at the mall. She bought me a pina colada smoothie from Orange Julius, we went to Victoria’s Secret to get my free Body by Victoria purse spray (Free with no purchase necessary — Can you believe it? I love these perks!) and I got a new chemise/nightie and I also got a blouse from A&F.
Lana Lang (Smallville) always wears it on the show and it was on sale for only $15-something so I absolutely had to have it. I also got two more of the long-sleeved shirts I like. I ordered the blue one through the A&F website and I was actually wearing it that day. The burgundy and the green ones were on sale at the store, so I ended up getting both the burgundy and the green ones also. I absolutely love that top and the only color that was available in my size when I ordered it online was blue.
After the mall Jen and I came home to start getting ready for her office’s halloween party. It was a lot of fun! The pictures are available online in the photogallery (check the links on the left) ~ if any of you care to see them.
I expected to be home around midnight because Brian gets off work around that time and I wanted to be home by the time he got home, but I ended up coming home much sooner than that. This guy that Jen has been crushing on at work left around 11:00 PM to go to another party and Jen wanted to go there so we agreed that she’d drop me off earlier so she could go to the other party also. I really wish that Brian could have been at the party with me. It would have been much more enjoyable with him there. Anyway, I guess this is all for now.. I have to start dinner in a few minutes, so that it’ll be done in time for Brian to arrive.
