One month, tenth days and other lengths of time that are stressing me out.

I haven't abandoned you blog. I've just been stressed/busy with wedding planning, work, Bosco and life in general

Wedding planning - our wedding is one month from today! When did that happen? I'm excited but stressing about everything going smoothly. I'm taking a gamble by ordering my flowers through the internets but every florist I called couldn't do it. Here is my tip for you. Order you bouquet way early. IT WILL ALL BE OK. If you say it in caps it makes it true.

work - still very busy and still understaffed. We have a new assistant starting May 1st and a college student working over the summer helping out. My desk looks like a paper factory exploded.

Bosco - had some teeth pulled a biopsy on a small spot on his leg. He's been in a cone for TEN DAYS. It has felt like a damn lifetime! He was not pleased which means I'm not pleased and it has not been fun for anyone. I tried explaining this to Bosco but he is, after all, a cat. The good new is his stitches were removed today and he doesn't need the cone anymore. *paw five*

I will catch up on blogs soon. I need to check in on my internet peeps.

Change of plans

Too much fun on Friday night = ordering Zaftigs and lounging around in PJs on Saturday night.

I love the Ferris Bueller Dominos commercials with Joe Keery (Steve from Stranger Things). He's a good Ferris and is adorable.

I also love looking at our wedding registries and seeing what's been bought. Exciting! My shower is on the 23rd.

Why am I blogging when I should be sleeping

Who finally did her taxes tonight? This girl. I also ate a homemade pizza for dinner and had a piece of Derek's leftover birthday cake.

I finished watching Broadchurch on Netflix. I thought it was pretty good but I don't think I'm going to watch the second season. I know who the killer is and I just don't see the point in continuing the series after that. If you've seen the second season let me know if it's worth it.

Weekend plans include celebrating Derek's birthday back in our old hood and NOT DOING TAXES BECAUSE I ALREADY DID THEM *cackles*

Opening Day

Today is Opening Day for the Red Sox. I'm not a baseball fan but I do consider Opening Day an unofficial sign of spring. It also means I have to start walking from my office to Kenmore to be able to get on the T. At least it's nice out today so I won't mind the walk. And now I want a ballpark hot dog.

On a sadder note, a young man went missing in Boston last week. 23-year-old Michael Kelleher went missing Wednesday night after attending a Celtics game with a co-worker. His last known location was Paul Revere Park where he tried to hire an Uber but was never picked up. Unfortunately when a young man goes missing in Boston after a night of drinking he's usually found in the water. I hope that's not the case but it doesn't look good.

Good Morning!

It took me 20 minutes to get the shower curtain up so I could take a shower this morning. They're still working on the bathroom so it was taken down while Vlad Contractor worked (I will explain this in another post). It kept falling down and since I'm short it's not easy to get it back up. I'm pretty sure I pulled a muscle in my back trying. At one point it fell down on me while I was in the shower. You can laugh, Derek did when I told him. I think I've reached my swearing quota for the day.

Someone had a "fun" Saint Patrick's Day

Derek woke me up at 4 in the morning to tell me that there was a major leak in the bathroom. There was water coming down from the ceiling and it was getting everywhere. Just what you want to be dealing with at 4 in the morning. Derek rigged up a trash bag and a pot to get the water into the tub rather than all over the floor. I left a message for our landlord and called property management. I didn't think this was something that could wait.

We found out what the issue was fairly quickly. A woman who lives two floors above us got drunk on Saint Patrick's Day, clogged her sink and left the water running. She passed out in bed while the bathroom flooded. The unit above us has even worse water damage than we do. It was coming out through the electrical outlets in their bathroom. I didn't see any water coming out of the outlets but I won't be using them until they're checked out by an electrician.

I stay home and I still have to deal with the drunks on Saint Patrick's Day. I bet she has a hell of a hangover.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

In my younger years I would rarely stay home on Saint Patrick's Day. I even went to the parade in Southie one year. The highlight of the parade was seeing a drunk girl get tackled by two cops for running out onto the parade route and attempting to run away from the police. Now that I'm a bit older I'd rather stay home and avoid the crowded bars. The time change has left me feeling pretty tired too so I think I'll be celebrating from my bed tonight.
