So... we went to the game. It was a lot of fun, even though ASU lost. I owe Shirley big time (Shirley, I owe you big time!)! Sorry, we didn't take any pictures. I know, my blog is boring and pictureless lately, but at least i'm writing. Here's one i just found though.
Today is our One-Monthiversary! Shirley got up early and made me breakfast! I love her. We're going to the temple after work to celebrate. We love the temple.
There's something to be said for waking up early. I won't tell you what I say when i wake up early... but once i get going, i feel pretty great! It's 8:30, I've been up for 2 hours now, and i feel very awake.
Went to the bookstore. They still don't have my book on the shelve, so i come back here to the institute building and chill. Literally. My hands are freezing. I'm wearing my little gloves. And my jacket. Cause i'm cold.
My computer crashed this weekend. It was sad. I lost everything; all my pictures and music and old saved files and software - everything. But i'm ok with it. I didn't even cry. Maybe that's because i haven't yet thought of a picture that i want to look at and tried to look at it and remembered that it's gone. Maybe when that happens I'll be sad.
I broke Shirley's glasses this weekend too (everything's breaking lately). Sat on 'em. Since it was a saturday, not very many eyeglass places were open. We did find one though, and since we needed a more immediate fix than ordering a pair of glasses, she walked out of the office with contacts. She's a contact wearer now. And i love her. Even though i brake her stuff.
Shirley loves to cook. For that I am immensely grateful. She loves to put out a meal for people. I'm sure if it were up to her, we'd have someone or some couple over for dinner every night. She also loves to make up new recipes and just throw stuff together. Don't worry, everything she's thrown together so far has been just great.
I'm blogging that:
So last night, we got home from school and she says: "What do you want for dinner?" I say "Oh, just cereal or something, it's late and we're tired, don't worry about it." She says "How about Shepherd's Pie? It's easy to make."
So we sit down for dinner and she wants to tell me a story about something that happened at school today. She begins...
"So i was at school today, and I see this man walking across campus with this big stick, and it had the big crook neck thing at the top. And there're sheep following him! Well, he sat down and took out his lunch and was eating it, and i said 'What's that you're eating?' and he said 'Oh, it's just something my wife put together for me.' So i got the recipe and thought I'd try it out tonight! Eat up!"
I laughed. And kinda rolled my eyes. And probably called her a Dork.
So, I love Shirley. And if any of you know Shirley or myself very well, you know that sometimes we can be kinda weird. Well, there is no exception to this when it's just the two of us home alone. Often times one of us (though since I'm the one blogging this, I'll say it's mostly her) will do something just really weird, or awkward, or strange. Our latest threat is: "I can't believe you just did that. I'm totally gonna blog about that so all the world will know how weird you are." Scares me straight every time.
Except neither of us are very devout bloggers... hmm... if we were though, you'd know all the weird stuff we do. Which could be awkward for you. Right now though, i am in the mood to divulge. Luckily for her i can't remember any of her awkward 'haha-I'm-gonna-blog-about-that' moments right now. Darn.
School starts today. Since my car is in trouble, Shirley and I are sharing her car. And since she has a 7:30 class.... I get to wake up with her and drive to school. I've decided that this will give me extra time every Tuesday and Thursday morning to do productive things like sleep, or study, or blog. So here I am, sitting in the institute blogging. Ah, it's too early.
I married Shirley 15 days ago. I love her. For our one and two weekiversaries we went to the temple. We love that place.
Until we break down and pay for it ourselves, we only get wireless interenet reception when the computer sits on the corner of the bed in the bedroom. Thus I haven't blogged in a while.
We're still unpacking things. There always seems to be things to do; family parties, dinner invitations, shopping that needs to be done. So, some of our boxes are left unpacked, just sitting there. Maybe someday soon things will quiet down and we'll find time to finish putting our little place together.
