Shopping

This morning, I got up got showered, and got ready to go to my parents. Drew was going to go to the gym and he had some work to do on the computer. When I got to Crafton, I got to see my dogs. I missed them so much. We all got in my dad’s car, and we went to Robinson, and did some shopping. We went to Ross and I got two tops there for work, then to Kohl’s and I got two tops, two bottoms, and pair of neutral heels. My mom and dad spoil me.
After Kohl’s, we went to eat lunch at Eat n Park. I really wasn’t all that hungry, but I ate soup and hung out with my parents. I always like when I can see them. I miss them sometimes, other times I am glad I don’t live at home anymore. I really do miss my dogs though.
After Eat n Park, we went back to the house and I cuddled my dogs for a bit before I left. I had to get home and finish the laundry, and Drew planned on grilling for dinner. When I got home, Drew fired up the grill, we went through the mail, and I cleaned and did some laundry. I really need to clean the house top to bottom. Maybe next weekend.

Paris and Louie

This morning, when we woke up we went to the gym. This was going to be the last day for me to go to the gym, since we were dog sitting, and I had a bridal shower to go to tomorrow, so I made sure I went hardcore at the gym.

After our workout, we went home got showered, and packed up the car we needed to get ready to head over to my parents. I could tell this was going to be the beginning of a long week ahead. Drew was already not feeling this. I wasn’t either, but what are you going to do? it is what it is.

After we packed up the car, we both took two cars to Starbucks for coffee, then to Bed Bath and Beyond to get a gift for Stephanie. Drew was moody and his attitude was getting on my nerves. I was trying to ignore him, but it was hard that day. He was tired, long week, and knew it was going to be a rough week with the dogs. I had the same thing, but at the same time I have to get through the day. We decided on a turkey carving kit for Stephanie and Mike, whatever.

Once we got to my parents, we noticed there was poop in the hallway between the kitchen and the living room, let the games begin! I picked up the poop, took the dogs outside, they were too excited to pee. We unloaded our cars and put our stuff in the house. Once we got settled, we sat down with the dogs for bit, then decided to get out for dinner, and go to the Hop House. We love going there when we are in Crafton. It is like our cafe, in Crafton except no free beer, samples, and roadies!

While we were at the Hop House, we had a few beers, ate some good food, and conversed about the week ahead, the plan, and my parents. I was feeling a little loopy when we left there. I was ready for the week, I guess. When we got home, we watched Fifty Shades Darker. I loved it. It was good, but the first one is better. I will be sad when the movies end. One more left, Fifty Shades Freed! After the movie, we took the dogs out one last time, then it was bed for us.

Onsite

This morning, I had to get up at 4am and get a shower. I had to meet Chris in Burgettstown at 5:45am. I left my house at 5:00am. When I arrived to the location, I wasn’t sure where to park, so he called me as he was coming up the gravel road behind me. He told me to park my car, and hop into his car, and we would drive around. I got into his car, and we drove up to a park where there was a bunch of trucks, lights, and trailers. This was the place. We parked out front of a trailer, with the sign “Pumpco” on it. Chris went inside, and talked to the owner, and he said we will come back in around 6am. Maria, our contact, wasn’t there yet.

When 6 am arrived, we went inside and got set up. While we were getting set up, Maria came in and greeted us, and started passing out forms that the men were going to give us, when they came into the office to get BAT tested. It was kind of cool. There were 15 men in total. I went down the line and started taking their names, and their social security numbers. I kept everything organized and in order. I was proud of myself.
After collecting names and socials, I went into the office and helped Chris stick the stickers on the forms with the results on them. It was an intense day, and it was an early day.

When we were finished, and getting ready to pack up. Maria asked if we had time for one more. Chris said, I could leave if I wanted to, I didn’t have to wait for one more, so I did. I drove to my parents’ house and took a nap on the couch, before going back to the office at 9am.

On my way back to the office, I stopped and got Starbucks. Dave, my parents’ handy man was there. He bought me my drink, we chatted for a bit, then it was back to the office. I was so tired. When I got back to the office, Chris was ready to go, and talked to me about this morning, and how well it went. I just was so out of it. I knew I was going to be pretty much useless all day. Earl came in, and we told him how we were up at Burgettstown doing an onsite, this morning. We had to be there at 5:45AM. I just sat there, sipping my coffee trying so hard to stay awake. Chris said, she is all tired now. Earl said, well you have to remember, she is not used to that. I said, Yeah Chris take that! I did some cold calling, organizing, before Chris left to go sell. He wanted to drive around and visit some companies. He also stopped and got taco bell on the way back for us. I did not want to do any work at all. I was so beat.

After work, I went home and waited for Drew to come. I fell asleep on the couch. I woke up when he came in the door. We had to get ready to go to the cafe for his mom’s birthday dinner. On the way to the cafe, we stopped at Giant Eagle and picked up a card for his mom, and for his dad. We never got his dad a birthday card, back in March. We bought a little balloon too for his mom.

Once we got to the cafe, everyone was happy to see us as usual. We sat our high top table. My favorite waitress Leah, waited on us. When his parents came, she brought over an unopened chilled bottle of Crown Apple for his mom’s birthday gift. They are so good to us there. Brett talked to us about having my 30th Birthday there in the back room. I can have it all to myself, and my party. I was pretty happy about that idea. I need a good dirty thirty!

After dinner, we went home and went to bed. We were so tired, me especially. His mom and dad were happy with their cards. It was a good night, but I was so thankful to finally go to sleep that night.

Sunday Dinner at my Parents

Today, I was supposed to go with my dad to church at Saint Simon and Jude, for his confirmation meeting, but it was cancelled, so there goes that. I was kind of glad. My mom was cooking us dinner tonight, so I wasn’t sure what time I was going to head over there. I didn’t feel like going to the gym, but Drew was going to go and sit in the sauna and the steam room. He was still coughing a good bit.

When I left to go to my parents it was about 2pm, and Drew went to the gym. I couldn’t wait to see my Paris and Louie. I cuddled with them until my parents came home from grocery shopping. When my parents came home, we all relaxed until Drew got there. At one point, we went down to the basement, and found 14 year old coors light sitting in this old fridge, I was disgusted. I even opened it and sipped it. I was so bitter. We showed Drew and said, oh wow that is gross. My parents forgot it was even there.

Dinner was yummy. We had chicken casserole, and Drew got to take the rest home for lunch tomorrow. When we came home, we watched some of the Oscars then it was time for him to get ready for another week. I was tired.
