Jorge and I woke up around noon, only because the sun was shining through my closed eyelids. I squinted at my phone: 12:01pm. NICE. I hadn’t slept that long in a while! Either we have to work, have kiddos to feed or the cat’s meowing to be fed. But it was Sunday: no work, kiddos are with the other parents, and Ruffles’ bowl was full :).
Mom greeted us as we groggily passed by the living room in PJs. “Morning, mija. Made you guys some coffee.” Wonderful woman!
I prepared our coffees as Jorge sat at the breakfast table. We knew what we were having for breakfast/lunch: leftover shrimp from last night’s dinner!
We totally wanted to have Red Mango, so we ate light. I only had about 5 little shrimp. I’d bought 2 of those Deal of the Day coupons ($10 for $6) and we need to use them before they expire.
We showered, got ready, and Jorge took a short nap while I fixed my hair. Big mistake: he woke up grumpy . He was less than cheery when I realized I hadn’t shaved my legs and had to run back inside to change into jeans buahaha.
It was 105, ugh. I’m glad we were going for some cool yogurt. I’m not sure I like that Red Mango; it’s self-serve so you serve yourself way too much and then they weigh it and charge you by the ounce. We ended up spending a full $10 anyway!
Oh, but it was delicious!
I’m always wary of writing openly about Jorge and I, especially when we have an argument, since there are a couple of RL lurkers who’d revel in the fact that we indeed fight at times. But, since being added to that group on Facebook and giving it some thought, I decided I wasn’t going to hold back: I want to write about the good and the bad, like I always have. (Perhaps, in my past marriage I should have written more about the bad times instead of sugar-coating so much.)
So with that being said, Jorge was still a bit moody and made several comments here and there. When we got in the car and were almost home he said something, something I can’t remember, but he was rude and snapped at me. That was it. I retorted, “Quit being rude! I can only take so much of your bad mood before it rubs off on me.” He answers, “I don’t even know what I said!” And we both sat in silence and stewed the rest of the drive home. He went straight to the bedroom and I followed, much slower, leaving my purse on the table. When I got to the bedroom the door was locked. I told him to open it, he did reluctantly. I went to the bathroom, came back out and went to the living room. I walked back to the bedroom and plopped myself next to him and put my head on his shoulder. I felt him soften up. He said, “I’m sorry I was rude.” I nodded that it was ok. He asks, “Do you love me?” I answer yes. Then we laughed at the 80’s karate movie he was watching. And we were fine :). I hate when we argue, but I love that we can talk and get over it quickly.
We made plans to watch a movie, after dinner. We headed to Taco Palenque with mom a while later, her treat. It was GREAT. And all the food I’d been eating the past two days reminded me of this pin:
We stopped by HEB afterwards to get some drinks and stopped at the Red Box to get “Haywire” and “The Immortals”.
We watched “Haywire” first. OMG. I wanted to kick someone’s ass afterwards! It was a bit confusing, but it was a good movie. The next one was a little long, but it was good, too. I couldn’t believe we actually managed to watch 2 movies without one of us falling asleep LOL. By the time we knew it it was 11pm. I showered and fell asleep pretty quickly. And when I felt like I’d slept too much I woke up, and thank God, too, because I’d set the alarm wrong!
It was a long day, same-ol-same-ol. Nothing exciting. I met my love and his friends at Dai Tung for lunch. I had already looked up calorie counts on myfitnesspal so I knew exactly what I was getting LOL.
I found a parking space right away, our food came right away and we laughed and ate. It’s always nice seeing him for lunch; makes the day go by a tad faster :).
The afternoon went by, I wrote out at least 75 PO’s (no, really) and then I got home and had a chat with my babies. Can’t wait for them to be home on Wednesday!! Now it’s time to make dinner and then we’ll see what the evening brings :).
[edit 9:59pm] Oh yes, movie night! Again, hehe :D. “The Woman in Black” and:
