what a weekend

Filed under: absolutely fabulous — notsojenny @ 10:22 am

it was a great weekend overall.  over the course of the last few years my weekends have become fairly predictable.  M and i meet up after work on friday and then we split for work on monday morning.  i do love this, spending so much time with someone you love never feels like a hassle or gets on your nerves.  then every once in a while we’ll spend a weekend apart, he’ll go away on a trip, i’ll go away, or one of us will have company in town.  this weekend was the latter.  i got to spend time with someone i’ve been very glad to have met and made such good friends with.  and while i always miss M when we’re apart it’s nice to sometimes just pull yourself away from each other for a little bit.  i’m not trying to make anyone roll their eyes, because i know when i was not part of a couple like this i sat back and bitched about the friends i lost to their new relationships.  you know those girls who suddenly spent all their time with their beau and you never heard from them anymore?  yah, i didn’t want to be that.  but there’s a reason for it.  and i haven’t sacrificed my life for him, i still have friends and i make alot of effort to never lose them, i just prefer being with him and we like spending so much of our time together. 

anyway, a weekend like this past one was definitely needed.  once she arrived we went out for beers at the local smokey bars, took a rickshaw home, did some damage to bank accounts and lines of credit at the outlets, had a fantastically romantic dinner for two with a bottle of wine in a dimly lit restaurant, drank white russians while cookies baked, and caught an early brunch.  and she liked scungili!!  it was nice to get out of the apt, to spend some time with someone i don’t get to hang out with on a regular basis, to be able to talk about relationships and problems, and families, and whatever we wanted to talk about.  i know i have a tendency to drop the ‘ol “M this” and “M that” into conversations but i can’t help it.  it’s one of those subconscious things that i hear once it’s left my mouth and i cringe a little telling myself “shut up notsojenny.  there’s more to life than your man”  but at the same time i can justify it because he’s such an important part of my life, i just can’t help bringing him up sometimes.

all in all, it was a successful weekend on many levels.  the weather was gorgeous!  i finished up birthday gifts for everyone that i need to drop off when i head to CT this week.  i showed M the shoes i bought my brother in law and he really liked them, he loved them when i told him the price.  so we hopped in the car and headed back to the outlets, he now has them in black & brown and i returned a pair of pants that were too short (story of my life).  we ate leftover lamb sausage for dinner with some extra fixins, i knew he’d be excited that i had leftovers… he was curious why i didn’t bring home any scungili though… oh well, it was too good and we finished it all off : )
then we ate cookies and snuggled up in front of football where i began my napping.

it was a good weekend.

and my place is SO clean!!

  2. I totally agree that weekends like this are the best. The best! There’s something really nice about spicing up the ordinary, and hanging out with new friends is always an excellent diversion from the usual. I’m sitting here at work now, wishing I had some scungili. Alas.

  3. That sounds like an excellent weekend! Sometimes you need to shake it up a little. Love what your doing and love what you usually do even more.

  4. I’m like you I used to feel guilty about spending my whole weekend with my boyfriend and then I realized he’s the most important person in my life and our relationship is very important to me so I don’t feel so guilty anymore.
