Anthony’s Birthday Party and Pride

This morning, I woke up and had breakfast with Drew, made coffee, and then hung out and watched the Handmaid’s tale. I waited for Anthony to call me. It’s his birthday party tonight, and I know he mentioned the pool. Drew was going to go to the chiro and then to the gym. He was going to meet us at the restaurant tonight. I was going to miss him all day.
I got dressed in my swimsuit, and then I packed a bag and went to Anthony’s. When I arrived, I dropped my stuff off, and we went to go pick up Ray and take him to the pool with us. Dylan was going to meet us there. It was going to be so fun.
When we arrived at the pool, we typically lay out on the right hand side, but Anthony wanted to lay out on the left hand side, and it was his birthday weekend. We set out towels down, and I put some tanning oil, then went to get into the water. It was so cold. I was so glad to be back at the pool. It’s crazy to not have this much clothes on in public. Hard to believe it is summer. Dylan arrived shortly after we got settled. His shirt, said, “Sure Jan.” l had to laugh.
While we laid out in the water, we chatted about boys, work, memories, and they asked about my trip to Europe. They were glad I had a good time.  They played around in the water. I didn’t go out too far it was too cold. We stayed for a few hours, and planed the rest of our day. Anthony had so much he wanted to do before dinner tonight.
When we left the pool, Dylan went home to get a shower and get ready for tonight. I dropped Ray off at home. Anthony and I went back to his house had lunch. I got a shower, and Anthony did his laundry. Then we went to Great Clips, and he got his hair cut. Then we met Dylan back at Anthony’s house, where Anthony got a shower and got ready. Then we had to go pick up Ray.
Once we got Ray, we went to the Mall. I had to try to find something with this $60 credit that we had through JCPenney’s. It was so hard to find a dress, that three gay men agreed on. They both have different styles. I grabbed a few dresses they waned me to try and went into the fitting room. Ray and Dylan stood outside the fitting room. Anthony came back with me on his own. I didn’t even ask him. He just came back with me. It was so funny. I laughed so hard.
Well we didn’t find a dress, or anything, so I just wore what I had on for dinner. When we arrived at the strip district. I parked in a parking garage. Ray gave me $8 for the garage. We walked through pride in the streets. It was awesome to see some people swaying to the house music, some people were in costumes, and others were in normal clothes. It was cool. When we past pride in the streets, we were on our way to the restaurant, when I got a call from Drew. He said, “Turn around.” I turned around. I didn’t see him. He said, “do you see me?” He was across the street getting ready to walk across to meet us. I smiled and waved back. I hung up the phone. We waited for him to approach us so we could all walk to the restaurant together.
Once we arrived at Emporio, we had to wait for our table, so we went up to the beer terrace, that was on the second floor. We had a pre dinner drink. Dylan and I took a selfie together. He and I have come a long way with our friendship. We met through Anthony and have had our ups and downs, but now we understand each other. I had a vodka and tonic. Drew had a Moscow mule. We all stood around and talked. Shortly after our table was announced.
We all went downstairs, and took a seat a our table. The waitress explained the menu. I switched to a beer for dinner. I am supposed to be DD. I wasn’t sure what the plans were for tonight. I couldn’t be drunk, that is for sure. Dinner was so good. The meatballs were so big, you could get them in a bowl, sub, plan, etc.  I had the traditional meatballs in a bowl with some pasta. I was basic. I didn’t feel adventurous.
After dinner, we walked through Pride. Anthony said, “Hold on I have to be next Drew. I want to see his face.” we all laughed. Drew has never been to a Pride festival before. At some points he had some look on his face, that was a little like ew gross, at some of the costumes, and etc. I looked up at him and whispered. “Hey you can’t look like that.” he laughed. He said, “I didn’t realize I had a look on my face.”
Eventually Drew went with Anthony and Ray to the bar. Dylan and I hung out in the crowd and talked about everyone. After awhile, they came back with drinks. The drinks were huge. Andrew had a beer. I couldn’t believe how big the drinks were. Andrew stayed for longer, than I thought he would.  🙂 I was proud of him. He saw a few minutes of his first local drag show.
When he left I kissed him good bye, he was walking towards the sidewalk, when he got hit on. A guy stopped him and said, “Whoa Whoa wait.” He turned to look at him. The guy looked at him and down and said, “What’s up?” Drew looked over at me and laughed. I watched the situation and I laughed. I walked up to him and took his hand. We walked to the sidewalk.  I said, “You should be good now. Please text me, when you get to your car.” He laughed and kissed me again. I walked back to my group and we waited for the ABBA tribute concert to begin.
The ABBA tribute band opened with the song everyone knows and loves, no matter if you are gay or straight, “Dancing Queen.” We danced and sang along. Anthony took videos. It was fun. Other than Dancing Queen, I am lost. I am not a huge ABBA fan. At one point, Dylan got a text from Carrie that said, “Richard is here at the Blue Moon.” Okay, since when do Carrie and Dylan text? Are they still friends? Didn’t know that they were still talking. Dylan showed the text to Anthony. Richard is Anthony’s ex, that Dylan messed around with, while he was with Anthony. It is the drama, that goes unspoken. Anthony forgave Dylan, out of convenience. Dylan is someone for Anthony to hang out with, when it is convenient for Anthony, but he doesn’t trust him. I know what you are thinking, then why have him around? Like I said before, Anthony and I are friends even if we don’t agree with the decisions one another makes.
Well we all walked back to my car, and drove to the Blue Moon. I didn’t want to go. There were other places we could go. This was a bad idea. Anthony had been drinking so much already, this was not good. I understand why Anthony wanted to “bump” into him. We all have been there, but not like this, and not now. We are celebrating his birthday!
When we walked into the Blue Moon, and immediately to the left there was this little table, that could only seat two.  There he was, Richard and his boyfriend. I looked at him. He made eye contact with me, smiled, but didn’t say anything. I think it didn’t click in his head who I was. I looked back at Anthony and smiled. Then I turned back to Richard. He recognized me, hugged me and said, “Oh my God. how are you?” I smiled and said, into his ear (the music was so loud) I said, “I am well. Anthony is here. He looked behind me and saw him. He looked at his boyfriend and said, “Oh my God. We have to go.” I looked at him and said, “Dylan too.” He looked at me like he seen a ghost, and then behind me and turned a little and saw Dylan. He said, “Oh my God are you serious?” I said, “If you are going to continue to act like this, then it looks like you are not over him. You need to say hi to him, and be the bigger person. I am sure he would say hi to you, but he hears you acting this way, then perhaps you aren’t over him….” He looked at me and said, “No you are right, but you said, bigger person I am not even going to go there.” He laughed. He was trying to make a fat joke about Anthony. I shook my head.
Eventually Anthony and Richard did talk. Richard introduced him to his boyfriend. Anthony told him about his job, and his apartment, and etc. Anthony has so much going for him. Richard didn’t look good at all. Dylan was at the bar getting a drink, while Anthony and Richard were talking. He turned to watch them talk. He looked at Richard, up and down. It was gross how he was looking at him, in front of Anthony like that. I think Dylan would betray Anthony again. Dylan would do it again with Richard behind Anthony’s back, if Richard would have him. I just know it. It was creepy.
The Blue Moon was packed. There was a drag show tonight. We watched most of the drag show. Bambi Dearest is my favorite drag queen ever. She is the best, but she knows it, which is okay. She puts on a great show. The others not so much. It was around 12:50am when I rounded up the troops. I was getting tired. I asked Anthony if we could leave. He said, he didn’t mind. He was already so drunk. I said to Dylan, “Let’s go, we are leaving.” He said, “By yourself?” I said,”No we all are going to leave now. I am super tired.” He said, “oh okay.” We were walking to the car Anthony is crying and is emotional. He said, “I am just so happy to be gay.” Dylan is super quiet. Ray is laughing and is so drunk. This was going to be a long ride home.
Once we got to Anthony’s,  I went inside and grabbed my bag. I said, Goodbye to Dylan. Anthony walked me out, and then we were talking about the night, Richard, and Dylan. I told him I would text him when I got home. When I arrived home, I texted him that I was home safe. He thanked me for everything tonight. I got a shower, then climbed into bed with Drew. I was exhausted.

Chiro, Shopping, Church, Snow

This morning, we woke up around 7:30am, and got ready to go to the chiropractor. We had to leave the house in an hour. Drew is not a morning person and was kind of out of it. I was ready to go and start the day. We are different in that respect. We took two separate cars to the Chiro, and after we got adjusted I was going to go to my parents and spend the day with them. I wasn’t sure what Drew was going to do.
When we arrived at the Chiro, we walked in with Dr. Bailey, who just arrived when we did. We talked about getting over the flu and he said, the flu can really damage your joints, so I know you are definitely out of alignment. I definitely was. I was not looking forward to his adjustment.
After we got adjusted we made our appointment for the same time, but two weeks from now. I was going to need it again I am sure. After we left, I kissed Drew goodbye and got in my car. I drove to my parents in Crafton. I couldn’t wait to see my dogs. When I arrived to my parents, I was able to snuggle my dogs and kiss them. I missed them so much. We hung out for a bit, then went to get breakfast at Hanlon’s.
When we arrived at Hanlon’s we ran into Hellena and Vince, my cousins and Lisa and Jim; my mom’s friend’s daughter and husband. In two weeks, my mom and I are attending Lisa’s shower and I am not looking forward to it. Showers are boring when they are not your own. I hugged hellena and Vince. Then I hugged Lisa and Jim. Lisa and I talked about her shower, and her wedding. She said that she is so excited. Jim asked me if I was excited about England? I said, yes, I am so excited! I have no clue where we are staying and what our itinerary is, but I am so excited to go and experience it. I asked Lisa, about her honeymoon and where they are going? She said, “We are going to Vegas. We don’t want to travel out of the country right now.” I laughed inside, and I tried to control my reaction. I said, “Oh okay, well to each their own.” Then she kind of dismissed me and said, “I will see you in a couple weeks.” I smiled and sat down in the booth with my parents.
When I sat in the booth, I rolled my eyes and my mom saw and mouthed, “What?” I said, “passive aggressive comments, like oh we don’t want to go to out of the country. it’s not a good idea  now, so we are going to Vegas. knowing well enough I am getting ready to go to England. How socially awkward she is.” My mom thinks I am sensitive, but I am right. Something you shouldn’t say to someone, who is going out of town in two months. My mom sort of agrees after I explain it, but it wouldn’t be a shock if she disagreed.
After we finished at breakfast, we went home to get the dogs ready to go to the groomers. I sat in the backseat of the car with them on the way to the groomers. We dropped them off, and then went on our way to Robinson. We stopped at Dressbarn. I didn’t find anything, but my mom found jeans and a top. I was happy for her.
We went to the mall and stopped in at American Eagle and I tried on two pairs of High Rise jeans with the help of Kyle, our fabulous sales associate. He helped me with my jeans and I in turn started talking about my friend Anthony and how they should meet. Kyle has never heard of the Blue Moon in Lawerenceville, so I was glad to hear that he wasn’t tainted. Kyle is just like Anthony with his attitude and his sayings. I managed to get them to talk, via text. I added Kyle on facebook and showed him pictures of Anthony and he thought he was cute.
When we left, Kyle and I messaged back and forth about Anthony and that if they wanted to hang out, than great and if not, than no pressure Kyle and I could still be friends. Kyle was cool with it and Anthony seemed cool with it too, so I helped them exchange numbers and it seems they texted all day and into the evening from what I heard.
After the mall, we went to the groomers to pick up the pups. They looked so good. I love how they look when they first come back from the groomers. I sat in the backseat with them on the way back to Crafton. The roads were starting to get slick and I wondered if I should just have my mom and dad drop me off at home. I wasn’t sure what the best thing to do was, but I needed to get on the road.
When we got back to my parents, I said goodbye to them and the dogs. I drove to Greentree and looked at the time I had 15 mins until 4pm. I thought well maybe I will go to 4pm mass. I drove to Saint Simon and Jude, parked, and got out of the car. I walked inside and took a seat at the third pew. I had such a spiritual experience here last year and I want to get back to that feeling make it last. I was so close with my faith last year and revisiting my faith as an adult has been so different.
When mass started, I stood up and noticed a particular priest was presiding the mass. I was a little excited for all the wrong reasons. He and I had a few moments of flirtation, last year while my dad was becoming a catholic. He was easy on the eyes, but he was a priest and most importantly I am a married woman!
When he was up at the altar preparing the Eucharist, he noticed me and his eyes went up some in surprise, but he had to stay in the moment. It was nice to be acknowledged. After mass he said the sin bin is now open, I will be back in the confessional after mass today.
After mass, I went to confession. I swear I did go for the right reasons. I was due. I went inside the confessional and knelt down at first, and he said “Wow it is nice to see you again.” I said, “same here Father.” He said, “What are you sorry for?” I looked down and raised my eyebrows some, if he only knew. I said, “Well I haven’t been able to attend church as much as I should be, and I am in grad school and that takes up a huge chunk of my time. He nodded his head and congratulated me on grad school. He encouraged me to make time for prayer and maybe write in a journal, how did Jesus love me today?
Throughout the confession, he provided me with guidance on homosexuality in the Catholic faith, because I told him about my friend Anthony that I am very close with, and he said that he wants me to make sure my friendships are not above my marriage, and that is is my job to get my husband to heaven. I was floored and never thought of it like that. He asked me if I would want to share my experiences with newly engaged couples, who are looking to get married with in the catholic faith. I was excited and thought that I would definitely want to do that, but when am I going to have the time now?
After the confession, he gave me my penance, which was to go home and give my husband a big hug and tell him I love him. I was surprised. I typically have to say quite a few prayers for penance. He absolved me from my sins and told me to not be a stranger and how great it was to see me. I feel better so much better, and so determined to be the best version of myself.
On the way home, I called Andrew and I told him about my day, and he had just woke up. He was not feeling well all day. I felt bad, but he really needed to just take the day. I asked him about what the priest said, about sharing our story of marriage, and giving advice.  He was excited about it, but asked me when we were going to have time for that? I agreed with him. It may not be something we can take on, until after grad school. He supports me being involved in my faith and for that I am glad.
When I got off the phone with him, I stopped at WalMart and got his shampoo, and a cute st. Patrick’s day skirt, that lights up and two hair bows for when we guest bar tend at the Cafe on St. Patrick’s day. I need to amp up my gear for st. Patrick’s day. I already have wings and beads. Drew has a t-shirt, and a bow tie. We should be good, but we will see. Then, I picked up Chinese food take out for us, and then it was finally home bound.
When I walked in the door, Drew walked over to me and gave me a big hug, and my penance was finished. I was so happy to see him. He looked like he was better, but I felt bad that he was out of it. We ate dinner, and he helped me bring stuff in the house. I got a shower, then we watched Smallville together. I am trying to get him into it. I think it is working. We have 10 seasons to watch. It was a long show!

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.

First Day

So, I am finally laying down, and I have the chance to write something. I am not sure how I feel about how today went. So, it being my first day, there is so much to learn, but I was excited to be back to work at a University again, especially since it is Pitt.

However, out of habit and a fear of being late, I show up a half hour early. After I got coffee with Drew, I was still early. I stood outside and ate my hard boiled egg, and waited around for a familiar face from my interview to approach me. I face-timed my mom. She was excited for me. I showed her the building from the outside and how close it was to the cathedral. She was happy!

When Wendy approached the chapel, she saw me standing outside. She said wow you are early. I said “yes, I am typically either right on time, or running a few minutes late. You never know with the buses.”

When she unlocked the door, we went inside and she immediately turned on the lights, and then she said I could put my lunch in the fridge that was located in the book closet, then we walked around how the chapel gets unlocked. We put out the open sign, to let people know we are open.

Then Sharon walked into the chapel. I was to shadow her all day today. We shook hands, and then we went down to Wendy’s office and she handed me a set of keys. Then, I went back upstairs, and sat with Sharon. She seemed kind of distant and cold. I thought here we go again! I was waiting for her to tell me what the day-to-day is like, and she said I don’t know what to tell you, so just read over your stuff. You are like the 10th one I have seen here, every time I turn my back we have someone new. I didn’t say anything I just picked up my stuff and started reading. I didn’t really say anything to her.

Eventually Sharon was called down to Wendy’s office and it seemed like she was there for a while, so I just read the information and hoped no one came in that needed anything or had any questions because I wouldn’t have the answers.

When she came back, I got up to go to the rest room and went downstairs to see Pat, after I got out of the restroom. She and I talked. She officially welcomed me in so many words, but then she told me to curb my enthusiasm, since we are doing this before orientation. I need to not say anything. I said, well the only people who know are you, Wendy, my husband, and she then cut me off and said, Paula knows. I said yes, but she is like my mother and she has been trying to get me in to Pitt, and has helped me and I trust her.” She didn’t have much to say about that, but then she said all your references from Music were fabulous, however one was not in your favor, and I said, oh? Well that is upsetting, because I worked really hard to network here and build a good relationship during all my assignments. I find it hard to believe, and so unfortunate. May I ask who? And she said, I can’t say. I said, “I am sure, but I think I may know who it is. We have had a run in before and she is the only one I had an issue with, but I can’t be sure.” She said, all I am going to say is be careful who you step to in HR.” That right there was enough for me. I knew exactly who it was. I wanted to tell her the situation, and when I started she raised her hands up and said, “no I don’t want to hear it. Let’s just move on.” I said, “okay.” Then she said, we all have had complaints about us, that have gone to HR. I have and I have been here 30 years, but learn from it, that is all.”

Then we went over, my schedule for June. She told me this Saturday, I am to shadow Frank and not open my mouth for anything, unless it is to ask a question. I tried not to raise my eyebrows this woman was a straight shooter, and so am I, but two straight shooters in one building? Look out!

After my meeting with her, I went back up to sit again with Sharon. It was almost lunch time. I watched some people come in and out of the chapel, visitors, and the like. Then, it was time to chat about a lunch schedule. Someone should always try to be up front in the chapel at all times. Frank was going to go to lunch first, me, and then Sharon.

Before I went to lunch, I went down to see Wendy, and I wanted to talk to her about my schedule, and something about what Pat said to me. I told her the story, and she said it wasn’t HR. It was someone from your first assignment. The reason why you didn’t get offered the position, is because they thought you were unprofessional. At times, it is hard for us to separate our fun personality from our work personality. We wouldn’t talk the same way we do with our friends, as we would at work. I said, oh well I never heard anyone there give me a bad review from Katz. I was told I didn’t get the job, because I didn’t have enough experience as an executive assistant, and then I was immediately placed with Music. She shrugged her shoulders. I have a hard time beliving it was anyone from Katz. Then again, who knows, but I can only think of one person who would drag my name through the mud.

After that conversation, we went over my schedule. What time I need to arrive on Friday, and Saturday, and I apologized again for what they heard from one of my references, and she said, well you are here because you did so well at Music and Dr. Rice loves you, and thinks you did an amazing job over there and was so upset you didn’t get the position, just do the same here, and I feel as though you already learned from it, or else Music wouldn’t have raved about you. I thanked her for her advice and off I went. What a day!

When I left her office, I went up to the office Frank wasn’t there, so I just sat down and read over somethings, and Frank approached me and sat down next to me. We talked about the history of the chapel, the high points to it, when giving tours, and how he was the Heinz family archivist and historian. I was interested in the history of the building. People came in and out of the chapel as we talked. I was kind of amazed how many people came in off the streets to see this place. I listened in on one of his tours. It was pretty cool how much he knew and he gave a great tour, so informative!

When Sharon came back, she and I chit chatted some more and talked to some visitors, but I couldn’t stop thinking about what the hell happened and was it really that woman from HR, or was it Katz? I don’t know I can’t get over it. It is bugging me. Gawd!

When it was 10 minutes to 5pm, we started to close up, and Drew came over to see me and the chapel. I have been texting him off and on about all this and he was upset for me. When he came into the chapel, I introduced him to Sharon, and then I followed her around as she closed. Then, I was out of there.

As we walked to the bus, I talked to Drew about everything and he felt so bad for me. He and I racked out brain, but still came to the same person. I hope I can get over this soon. I fought back tears all day.  When we got on the bus, we talked about it some more, and then before you know it, we had to get off to catch our transfer bus. I had to take the G2 so I could meet up with my mom in Crafton. She was taking me dress shopping, and to dinner.

When I said goodbye to Drew, I got on the G2, took a seat, and put my earbuds in and played some rock music. My mom and I texted and kept in touch, while I was on my way to Crafton. I didn’t want to leave Drew. I wanted to stay with him, and have him make me happy again.

When I got to Crafton, my mom picked me up and we went to dress barn, and she bought me three dresses and a pair of no show socks for my flats, then to Walmart, and then Max and Erma’s for dinner.

When we got to Max and Erma’s, she and I talked the entire time and she said for me to get over it and learn from it, and don’t let it affect my work in this new opportunity. I agree. I won’t, but it just sucks. Always seems to be something that sets me back, whether it is myself or someone else.

Dinner was yummy. I had a salad again. Salad for lunch and a salad for dinner, and a salad tomorrow. I don’t want to put on any extra weight with this job, and I want to try to get the gym in whenever I can.

Thankfully, Drew is around to help me get ready for our Father’s Day cookout on Sunday. He is going to clean the house and go grocery shopping, and pick me up from work. I am one lucky girl. I have such a busy weekend. Rehearsal until 5:45 tomorrow, wedding Friday, and 3 weddings on Saturday. Then Sunday Monday, and Tuesday I am off. Whew!

Hopefully, tomorrow is a better day.

Monday, Prepping and Shopping

This morning, I went to goodwill in search of some dresses for work. I was hoping I would have some luck. I found 2. One for play and one for work. After the goodwill, I went home and got some gym clothes on and went to the gym. I actually did some running today it felt pretty good.
When I got home, I did some laundry and got a tote bag from the garage to take to work. I figured just use this until I get acclimated and won’t need to drag it around, or until his mom buys me a Pitt one from Vera Bradley. I managed to get the laundry done and did some work on my blog. One more sleep in day!

Dermatologist & A Day with Mom

This morning, I had to go to the dermatologist, and get some blemishes checked out. It turns out that I was 17 minutes late. I thought my appointment was at 8:30am. It was at 8am. Whoops! I did go to Starbucks before, and they took a little longer with my drink. Today was going to be a long day.

Once I got to the dermatologist, they were able to take me in right away. Nick, the dermatologist, said they can’t biopsy my blemish, because it is not raised or cancerous, they suggested a cosmetic dermatologist, but it won’t be covered under insurance, so he is going to prescribe me this chemical peel stuff, Retin-a cream. It could make it go away after a few weeks, and will help me down the road with preventing fine lines and wrinkles. Also, I have little bumps on my legs, they are keto something, and fair skinned women get them more frequently over the years, hardly noticeable, but they are there. There is no cure, yet, but a lotion will help minimize the appearance smooth them, and make them not so red. so far 29 year old skin sucks!

When I left the dermatologist, I went home and Drew put some last minute things in his suitcase, showered, and then we left for the airport. I was starting to get so sad. 😦 I was going to miss him so much. When we arrived to the airport, he parked his car at the curbside, checked in, and we kissed. I turned to leave. He said, “wait bub.” I turned around and he took me in his arms, and kissed me over and over again. He told me he loved me. It was so hot. I am going to miss him like crazy.

When I finally let him go, and got back in the car, I drove off and called my mom. I was going to meet her at Eat n Park. When I arrived at the Eat n Park, I got a booth and ordered a latte and waited for my mom to arrive. We had a light breakfast, and it was nice to see her.

After breakfast, we went shopping she bought me coach flats, since mine have a hole in them, and I had to throw them away. Then we went to kohl’s, she bought me a work top, and a top to wear to the Tom Petty concert. this woman is amazing!

After we went shopping, we went back to the house, and I got to see my dogs. My dad made dinner for us around 4pm. I dosed off during Dr. Phil, but I was pretty hungry. I needed to get back home and do some laundry. I was ready to go back to my house, even if it was going to be empty. Right now, I am watching the Pens game, texting Drew off and on and doing laundry. I am not sure when I will go to sleep. I am not looking forward to sleeping by myself tonight.

Church & Beauty and The Beast

This morning, I woke up early to get up and go to my parents house. I was going to church with them.  When I got to my parents, I was able to see my dogs for bit, then it was time to go to church. Church was church, and I got to shake hands with Father J after mass.

After church, my mom and I went to breakfast at Hanlon’s. Daddy had to go to his RCIA class. After breakfast, my mom and I went shopping. I got a sweater and a dress at TJ Maxx, and she bought me some black pants that fit for work. I desperately need black pants in a smaller size, and I like the thinner look in the legs, not the wide look. I have so many that have that wide look, and I don’t really wear them.

Before we knew it, it was time for the movie, when we got to the to movies, it was packed with little girls in their fairy tale princess outfits. It makes me want a little girl one day! The movie was amazing! I loved it! The beginning showed how he Prince was vain and frivolous and the French fashion. Then it explained how the curse was put on the Prince.
Throughout the movie, it showed the backstory of Belle’s childhood and the Beast’s, which is something you didn’t see in the Disney version from the 90s. I definitely want to own it when it comes out on blu-ray. I still mourned the beast, when he turned into the handsome Prince. There was a ton of adult humor and innuendos throughout the movie, but it was classy, and tasteful. I just loved it. I can’t say anything bad about it, and there is not one thing I didn’t like about it.

When I got home, Drew was home working on the basement. I started doing my training for work. I could only manage to do it for an hour. I just think this material is so dry, and my heart is elsewhere when it comes to my job situation, so he was going to have to be good with only an hour of training. We will see, what tomorrow brings.
