>Decompressing… ahhhh.

>My poor husband, seriously. I’ve been going crazy making lists and just being, well, for lack of better terms, OCD, about moving. Tomorrow the movers come and we are more than prepared. Everything’s off the walls, we have our clothes packed, and most of my list is crossed off (you know that means it’s a good day!). Over the next several days, we will be busy with family events which will be so much fun. I need to stop being irritable, cranky, whiny and just… worrisome.

We started off our day with a five-miler with none other than THE Gabriela! I love that woman… her influence and encouragement have had such an impact on my life in such a short time. I will miss our runs together terribly!

I’ve been cooking up a storm in this apartment… pasta salad, scotcharoos (both for the all-church picnic and Fourth of July!), oatmeal cookies (which were some of the best cookies I’ve made in this stupid oven), chicken stir-fry over rice noodles, spicy chipotle meatballs… and we’re making chili for the movers tomorrow.

Nomsies.

Mmm. Made with all white sugar since I was out of brown, maple syrup, almond flour, and three cups of my oatmeal mix so we don’t have to pitch it. Yum.

We’ve also done a test run with the kitteh today to see how the tranquilizer will affect him… he did well, and now he’s just chillin’.

Kitteh iz reddy fore Texas, Ai finks.

I should have taken pictures, but I ventured out for a few hours for lunch and Target with mah bestie, who leaves for Czech Republic tomorrow. It will be awhile before we see each other again. 😦 I guess we’ll be having plenty of knitting & tea Skype dates!

When I came home, Aaron had this sitting on the counter for me… just a random card for no reason at all.

“just the way you are, regardless of what you do or don’t do,
past, present, and future, no matter where you go,
even on your not-so-good days, whatever you choose,
with all of your unique qualities, simply because you’re you”
“Sweetheart, I just wanted to let you know how much I love you
and how happy I am to be home and able to spend time with you.
You are an incredible wife and you make me feel like a lucky man.
Aaron”

Seriously?! I am such a lucky blessed girl! He used to leave notes on my car while I was at school (we started dating my senior year of high school and he’s a couple years older).

We FINALLY got ice cream tonight at Emack and Bolio’s in the Heights. I’m so addicted to ice cream it’s not funny, and summer temps only fuel that vice. However, hubby has been doing very well in discouraging me from partaking too often. I should have taken a pic, but I got the flavor “Beantown Buzz” in a small-ish Oreo and fudge-dipped waffle cone. A lovely indulgence.

Then we drove about a mile down the road to Starbucks and visited my sister Emily at work… visions of this pretty lady (with a star on her head?) help me relax, for sure… oh, and my amazing sister!

Green tea + Classic

Now, I’m off to enjoy the evening with maybe definitely a margarita… it just goes perfectly with the weather! and some downtime with  my wonderful husband. Really, despite the stress, what more can a girl ask for?

Wellllllll…… mayyyyybe some of this… 😉
