Cold and damp

So, I was debating what to write for a post, since I know you all have been waiting over a week. Then I read AD's post on perspective, and in turn I had to go to the cop's site and the nurse's site. And that was a tear-jerker (of course I'm a sap for those sad stories anyway). Please read their posts on perspectives. Start at the Cop, go to AD's and end up at the Nurse's.
No, nothing exciting happening in my life, I go to work, come home, wait for Kevin to get off work/watch TV/play on the computer, hang out with Kevin, go to bed and start the process all over again. Exciting huh?
Actually this week, I've been taking care of my parents house while they ran away for a tiny get away. You'd think it wouldn't be that hard, but Thurs night I get home from work, and couldn't find their paper, so figured I'd call the paper people in the morning. Then it pours Thurs night, Friday morning, I get the weird feeling that someone is in their house (after getting my bathroom remodeled I can hear when someone's walking on the stairs), so I go downstairs, look around, go outside, and find the paper on the steps soaked. So, I brought it inside and unfolded it and layed flat to dry, most people would just buy a new newspaper. And today, I get to mow the lawn, and water plants, not really looking forward to that. Course I've put off getting out of bed until now (and most likely later), it's almost 2pm.
I found out from my dad that our condo week in Okoboji is open, so it looks like Kevin and I are going up there on the Sat it starts and coming back on Tues of that week, since neither of us can afford to take a week off. I hope that will last me til December when I might take a vacation. I haven't had a real vacation in a couple years, and after having a set schedule where I work, I hate not having a bit of time away from work (and before school).
I was debating posting about a couple things that have bothered me lately. They're just little quotes/sayings made by people I know (OK, it's only 2 things, but they've been bothering me).
The first one, I have a friend T, who I knew in HS, and had a couple of classes with in college. We started getting together for lunch after these classes to talk and eat. Well, after I graduated in Dec, I wanted to keep this tradition, but as I didn't have a job, I wasn't able to afford dinner, so we were going to cook each other dinner. This worked out for the time I went to her house, when I was going to reciprocate (yes, I was going to cook, OK it was a complete meal from a box, but still...), she kept saying her schedule didn't work, and then she just cancelled on me with no other date in mind. Then she sends me a "Free Gift" on facebook (an online community), with the message that My life is complicated. That annoyed me so much, the fact that I was actually happy with a job, and a guy, suddenly my life is complicated. I've been debating whether to blow up at her about that, because it's bullshit. It was like she was telling me it's ok if I have to schedule my life around her schedule to get together but GOD FORBID her do the same thing for me, when it's inconvenient to me to meet her schedule. If I did, it's not like I'd lose a great friend, we didn't hang out much in HS, we were in different groups. I think part of the reason we got together in college, was the fact that it was someone I knew in the class, that makes a huge difference no matter what year you are in school, if you know one person in a class, it makes it easier.
The other thing was said last weekend when Kevin and I were cuddling, I decided after it happened we were not going to that degree of cuddling again. It was a moment thing with a shitload of things happening, plus a mood I was in after finishing a book (Yes, I'm still a virgin, get over it). Anyways, he said something to the extent of "I'm glad life brought us together" I know it didn't mean anything, guys say tons of shit when they're turned on and getting something exciting. But I hate the idea that fate exists that something made us get together, and I figure there's something else that bugs me, but I'm not quite sure about what it is.
I just realized I didn't clue y'all in about my weekend at Kevin's parents house. It wasn't too bad, but I don't think I'm gonna get used to anyone sleeping in a bed with me anytime soon. We were in a king size bed, on complete opposite sides of the bed, I kept nudging him over when he got too close. And his family reminds me of mom's family when we have get-togethers, so I felt very comfortable there. It was fun, and I wouldn't mind going again sometime.
Alright, that's all you get, I gotta do some shit today.

Instead of making me better, you're making me ill

Does it mean anything when a guy asks you to meet his parents?
Kevin wants me to go home with him this weekend, I want to, but of course George decided to come this week, so it's gonna depend on how I feel.
We've been dating officially for about a month, I'm thinking unofficially, about 2 months, and we've known (been getting together) each other since January.
Thoughts would be appreciative.

You're my Mississippi Princess

Life is good.
So, Saturday, Kevin and I went to the Fairgrounds for the Good Guys car show, they were expecting 3,000 cars and 9,000 people. There were way more than that. I got 199 pictures before my camera ran out of battery power, I still had 211 pictures left on my card, I was pissed. Most of my pics are Cameros and Chevelles, damn I love those cars (at least the late 60's early 70's models). Found a couple old squads as well as a couple impalas for the fairground cops. Almost got a pic of a couple hotties, but the cart they were in moved too fast :(
Got me a little sunburn too. Apparently there's a couple spots I can't reach on my back. Kevin said next time, he'll just have to do it for me.
Went to my uncles for a "birthday" celebration. I may or may not have scared Kevin away from my family. No offense to my dad's family or anything, but I'm not as big a fan of those get-togethers as I am of my mom's. In my dad's family, everyone is either way older or way younger than me, at least in my mom's family there are people closer to my age.
Sunday, we planned to go to an art fair, but I decided I wasn't interested anymore, so we went to Walmart instead, and then ended up at Kevin's apt which was about as hot inside as it was outside (close to 90 degrees) because one of his roomies won't turn the AC on. I was sitting there sweating, I didn't wanna move and exert any energy.
Yesterday, I woke up to it raining, so I went on part of my walk in the rain. Damn, I've needed that therapy for a LONG time. That felt great.

Finally got my birthday present from my brother. He nicely stuck to my list this year, I was surprised at the amount he sent me, but not complaining ;) Received Nickelback All the Right Reasons, The Pussycat Dolls, Kuffs DVD, and the TMNT trilogy.

24, already? When did that happen?

So, today is my birthday. Here's a list of what I want:
1. A guy (oops I got one of those)
2. A job (got one of those too)
3. Officer Anthony Pilutik to come visit and have some pics taken with him (good luck getting that one, huh?)
4. Pictures of my local cops (also not gonna happen)
5. Time with my friends (that may happen, having a little get together later)
6. Lots of comments (you all can help me with that)

So, Kevin and I were out today, and he said he finally found someone that makes him happy, that he can also make happy.
Also, I love being called his girlfriend, but it feels weird saying he is, or that I have a boyfriend

I love seeing my favorite cops on Cops, but it would be so much better to see new hotties.
Work has been slow, but we keep hoping for lots of customers buying $100 purchases.

And that is all the updates I have as of now. If anything fun and exciting happens, I'll let ya know.

Last week

On our way home from Chicago, we stopped off at a Hobby Lobby, but unlike some other stores I feel all Hobby Lobby's have the same stuf...
