Last week around this time, I was feeling pretty pathetic. I had a sinus infection that wasn’t going away, I was coming home from work and just feeling winded walking up the stairs. The idea of writing a blog post became the most horrifying thing on the planet simply because I’d have to move and think more than I already had. Something was up with me and I wasn’t sure if it was in my mind or in my body.

So, I gave in. I stopped going to the gym, I stopped writing blog posts, I wrote something on my Facebook page about taking the week off, but I just didn’t really allow myself to stress about it. I spent my spare time taking baths, watching TV, and preparing for Jesse’s visit. You’ve never seen a kitchen so clean.

It was just what I needed. I feel so much better. A little dose of “me” time and a little dose of Jesse time really did the trick. We celebrated all weekend and I dropped him off at the airport yesterday. It was bittersweet. I’ll miss him, but he’ll be back really soon for my birthday!

It was a good weekend filled with appropriate amounts of busyness and relaxation. All the guys in the above picture have been friends for over 10 years. They were all in a band through college and are still besties till this day. Jim came back to our place and he and Jesse finally played on the set-up we’ve had in the garage for months without Jesse playing it.

Yes, my boyfriend is quite attractive. I know.

Buff came over and hung out for a while, too. He was eager to meet Jesse and they hit it off right away.

Then, Jesse packed his bags. It was a bummer, but everyday that passes is one day closer to the move to Seattle. So, I’m willing to let him go. 😉

Plus, I got another boy to come over and hang with me for the week.

Life’s not too shabby. Glad I got some rest and I look forward to writing again. I’ve been applying to jobs this week and let’s just say it’s… not fun. I don’t want to write a cover letter for every job ever. I just don’t.

I like writing about what I think about what I think. I also like writing about what other people think and what I think about that. Yes? Yes.
