Grown Up Things

I'm SUCH a grown up. It's awesome. Lol.

Wynel's having a boy! Yay! Let's all celebrate! Nehemiah Wesley! So exciting!! She still has 3 more months until he gets here.

Remember the bowling ball? So one of Wynel's old roommates just had a son who was 9 LBS. 14 OZ!!!!! Let's say a prayer right now. Dear Jesus, Please do not let me have a child who comes out a grown man. Thanks. Love Jameil.

"You hang up, no you hang up." I know that's so not grown up but I actually regularly have a variation of this conversation after hours and hours of talking! Who does this??? Hilarious.

I went to bed at 5:30 and was wide awake at 9. I'M NOT A PARENT!! I WANT TO SLEEP IN!! My dad is snoring in the chair behind me right now. SHARE YOUR SLEEP!! So selfish.

I had fire roasted tomato chipotle salsa, guac and chips for breakfast this morning. Oh yes, it was as delicious as it sounds, my friends!! I had to make myself stop eating it despite the faucet formerly known as my nose as a result. D(ad) says, "Get up and cook you some food and stop eating snacks." I retort, "This is what I feel like eating." "Good point." I know. Because I'm a grown up. Too bad there's no ice cream. I'd eat that, too. Actually I really want one of those soy orange creamsicles from TJs. I would tear that bad boy up! Come here boy! Show you who's boss.

I cannot even begin to describe how much packing I have left to do. Try everything but my books which my sister packed when she was here what? 2 weeks ago? Why won't someone come do this for me? Probably because I'm a grown up. Haters.

I'm going to a wedding tonight. One of my coworkers. I'm really excited. I think it will be really pretty. Now if I can just tackle that pesky closet and find something to wear. I want to make a fascinator... clearly mine will not look crazy like those! Lol. I'm good at crafts, I just don't take the time have the patience anymore.

15 days of work left!! Just 3 more weekends!! AND 2 more Fridays!!! You know even those can't get me down anymore!! They're about to stop being my least-favorite day of the week. My coworkers are in the full-on throes of planning my 2-day Pittsburgh farewell extravaganza! Yeah!!!

I'm so excited!! Like wiggling and dancing with anticipation excited! Champagne, beer and limes on the house, aka me. Yeah!!

I've had oreos for breakfast a few dozen times since i've been a 'grown up'- i love it...

i can't say i've had a 'you hang up, no you hang up' convo...ever... but it's cute when it's done the right way... sometimes, you just want to keep talkin...

i HATE packing and have contemplated throwing out everything i own and buying all new things versus packing (but that can only happen if i suddenly become rich...*sigh*)

you gotta have a 2 day 'welcome to gainsville' party as well... you know, for balance...lol

oh yeh...FIRST!

the "you hang up no you hang up" convos are so cute! people must want to talk sooooo bad and can't bear the thought of not hearing the other's voice!! drew and I used to do that. then i'd fall asleep.

i'll eat cupcakes or apple pie for brekky and be allllllright!

i LOOOOOOOOOVE night weddings! i want one, but they are more expensive :-( well, since i'll be saving on my dress... :-)

My grandmother likes to tell the story of when she had to move house with a husband and three young kids. They hired the moving company to pack up their stuff because they were too busy. The movers packed everything. EVERYTHING. There was an empty peanut butter jar out on the counter. They packed the jar in tissue paper, and the lid too, separately, also cushioned in paper. It was silly.

" Let's say a prayer right now. Dear Jesus, Please do not let me have a child who comes out a grown man. Thanks. Love Jameil."

I said that prayer once I got a wiff of me and my sisters birth certificates with all of us 9 pounds or more.

*hands together* God no long, heavy babies please.

My mother said that's the most futile prayer ever with my genes. But it'd be wrong to pray for good drugs, don't cha think?

"You hang up" convos? Wow, that's lame. LOL

Lemme get some of that salsa, yo!

LOL @ you showing a creamsicle who's boss!

Seriously, sleep in when you can. Parenthood doesn't allow it, ever again!

Oh, and please include me in that prayer. 9 pounds 14 ounces? OUCH!
