Busy weekend. Busy, busy weekend. I was so very close to calling in sick today. I just am not feeling 100%.
Friday I was able to take off from work an hour early so that I could run to the DMV (love the DMV for having wait times listed on the locations websites!) to renew my license. It was the single-most amazing DMV experience of my life. I was in and out and 6 minutes. 6 MINUTES!!! And I had to pay, do my vision test, get a new picture, and do the thumb-print scan-thingy. AWESOME. So I got home a little early and was playing Diablo II (haha) because J usually doesn’t get home until after 6. But his boss let them go an hour early! So he got home shortly after me. Our friend, J, had come over with him because he was going to a dinner in Rancho after work, and had nothing to do for an hour because he got off work early. After he took off we headed to our best friends’ house to play one of our favorite card games.
Saturday morning we woke up, got ready, grabbed a quick snack and headed back to their for their “Come see our new house” bbq. We always get places early so that we can help out with anything that needs to be done. It was a good time. Good food, the pool was 82 degrees and lovely… It was a good day.
Sunday the alarm went off and I grumpily dragged myself out of bed to get in the shower because we had to go to J’s cousin’s house for Mother’s Day. His older cousin is a pastry chef – went to France for school and everything, even came home with a French chef for a husband! His other cousin married an Italian chef, so food is always amazing when we go over there. We had pancakes and waffles with Nutella and berries, her signature currant scones and chocolate banana muffins… So fantastic. But we ended up staying WAY longer than I would have liked to and so now I’ve felt rushed today. Oh well.
So I am trying not to let the impulsive side of me rear her head, but I really can’t stop thinking about that red laptop I wanted so badly before. It’s just SO cute. I want it really badly. And I have all that money on my HP credit card that I already paid off this laptop on just sitting there. Mocking me. I could just hide it in my purse. J would never have to even know that it exists… Right? SIGH. I almost wish I were the type of person that could do something like that… But I’m not. I’m going to be getting a bonus… It’s not going to be much, but it might be enough to cover it… AHHHH!!!! Why can’t I stop thinking about that adorable 10.1 inch red laptop with Vivienne Tam Peony Design (that “signifies good fortune and prosperity”) with matching silk sleeve and color-matched red keyboard?!?! Hahaha… Yeah… I think I will always want it. It’s just so very very very very very…. Me. It’s so adorable, it makes me want to puke. Literally. I love it. LOVE, people. LOVE.
I don’t care that it’s frivolous. Being sensible 100% of the time is BORING. Like my super-adorable Steve Madden gladiator sandals – not sensible, but they are super-cute and super-comfy. And I’m going to go get them in brown too. DSW, how I love you… I guess they aren’t completely frivolous, though… Before them, I had no sandals that I could wear to work… And the brown ones are necessary because I don’t own any brown shoes. At all. Not one single pair. So they are a need, not a want. See the justification powers at work? Yeah… I’m good at that. Unfortunately the adorable laptop is purely a want. Purely unnecessary – except to stop me from going insane wanting it…
