I’m amazed at how quickly time has gone by – I’m leaving for Vegas in two days! Two days! Yesterday I had many conversations with Irishman, and had to throw the hammer down just a bit, insisting he head to the grocery store BEFORE I arrive. He lives day-to-day on the food … he’ll hit the grocery store everyday instead of doing a big shopping spree. Not to mention, the boy did not have a coffee pot in his house. Can you even imagine? I use to jump on him in the in morning/afternoon when I woke begging him to drive and get us coffee. As I’m going to be there over a week this time, I realized that this was just not going to work. So, I found a coffee pot online, on clearance no less, and it had free shipping. For less than $12, I had the coffee pot shipped to him about two weeks ago. I hadn’t mentioned it to him, and when it was delivered to his house, I got this text. “I feel like having some coffee. If only I had a coffee machine.” And I had to laugh, who calls it a coffee machine? Anyhoo, after much discussion, I sent him a grocery list, a small one mind you, and he promised to have his place stocked by the time I arrive. He had better, cuz coffee and filters were on the list!
New Years Eve in Vegas – should be an interesting time. I’m looking forward to the craziness actually, and am certainly looking forward to a smooch from Irishman at midnight. He is working that evening, so I’ll be at the pub hanging out. I’m sure I’ll have some really good Weird Thing of the Week when I return! Which reminds me, I’m going to work on posting a few updates while I’m gone … I have the means it’s just being sneaky about it actually. But I have a plan in motion. So be sure to check back every now and again.
Oh, another thought! It’s Vegas, and I’m child-free for a week, and Irishman works in a pub for goodness sakes, it’s a given I’ll be drinking. I’m sure there will be some intoxicated texting going on … Let me apologize in advance for any late night texts some of you may receive. Especially on New Years Eve!
I do hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or whatever it is you may celebrate, and my best wishes to each of you, known and unknown (lurkers, I know you’re reading!), for a very Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year.
