Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 69

This has been another pretty uneventful week. I have felt pretty crappy... so I guess that is okay.

By far the best thing that happened to me this week was on Friday, my dad invited me over for a BBQ because both my parents were going to be gone last weekend. I got there before my sister and her family showed up and my dad was showing me the new garden that they had all been working on. When My sister's family showed up usually they run to Grandma & Grandpa and give them big hugs... but I had been gone the last few weeks and had not seen them. I didn't really think they would care or take notice, but Sierra came running to me and calling my name and gave me a hug and then Grant came running to me and gave me a big hug and said "Tracy, I missed you". I felt like a million bucks. Can't tell you how much I love all of my nieces and nephews. Seriously.

After the BBQ, I got a call from my BFF neighbor. I spent the rest of the night talking to him, which I always enjoy. I am so glad that he called me, otherwise I would have been sitting at home by my lonesome and I never like that.

I hate being one of those girls that over thinks things when you should just go with the flow... but sometimes its so hard not to. I mean... I hate it when I hear from a guy... and then I don't all of the sudden, and when I text him, he doesn't text back. I mean... it could be nothing, he could just be really busy, but I just assume the worst. Why do we do that as girls. I guess guys probably do that too, but I know it is so easy for me to do that. I wish I didn't care so much. I just want a simple answer, is that so hard? Just text me back and say sorry and your busy. Or tell me you hate me and you never want to talk to me again. I don't know.... but say something.... so I at least know. Instead I just wait, and try not to care, when in reality, I do. Ugh.

I am pretty amazed by how many people don't care about the cleanliness of the place that they live in. Especially girls. I know its not fun to clean... but don't you feel better when your house is clean? More sanitary? I am not even just talking dishes here. Although I can't tell you how annoying it is when I want to clean my dishes, but I can't because the sink is blocked with other people's dirty dishes that they didn't feel like cleaning because they would rather be watching shows on their computer. Even though when a lot of people think they are cleaning... they just think that means doing their dishes. I am talking about other chores that NOBODY cares if they ever get done or not. 90% of the time I dump the trash. 95% of the time I wipe the counters of crumbs and spills and stains. 100% of the time I sweep & mop the floor (and I have let it get pretty bad to see if anyone else would do it) and when its freshly mopped, people don't care and spill and don't clean it up or walk across it with dirty foot prints. 100% of the time I vacuum floors. 95% of the time I am tidying up and picking up after everyone else. 100% of the time I clean the microwave and stove. Seriously... if I wasn't doing this, do you know how gross the house would be? It makes me sick to even think about it. Why don't people care? Ewww

Last night I saw Kung Fu Panda 2 with a group of friends. It was actually really cute and quite funny. I may have even liked it better than the first one. If you saw and liked the first one... I would recommend seeing this one. I think one of my favorite lines was "I have so many questions, like... why was I in a box? Why didn't I like to wear pants? And who am I?" Maybe you had to be there... but that made me laugh.

I am not going to lie. I have been watching the Bachelorette. This last episode really got me worked up. I couldn't believe how dumb Ashley was being. Why did you set the guys up to do a Roast about you and then go off crying being all sensitive about it. Why are you taking comfort with Bentley when he is the biggest DB that I have ever seen in my life. How can you not see that he is the biggest DB ever? Bentley, where did you learn to be such a DB and what makes you feel the need to be such a jerk? You are not even as good looking as you think you are. You give Utah a bad name. Ugh. Why do I watch this show?

I wish I could say that my pain from my wisdom teeth went away after the first day. Even right now... my mouth still hurts. I am waiting for this to go away. I have not taken a lortab yet today ( I have taken at least one every day) but I feel like I am going to need to if I want to go to sleep. I am very much over my mouth hurting and having a hard time eating anything that isn't soft. It also kind of hurts when I smile and laugh... which I also hate because I love to smile and laugh.

Speaking of lortab.... I had never taken that stuff until now. That stuff is STRONG!! Seriously. I can barely function on it. Guess what, I took it at work. Do you know how hard that was? ha ha. I felt so useless. I would want to sleep so bad and I couldn't. I could barely walk... it is kind of pathetic. However, it does make the pain go away. I can't argue with that.  I had just never felt a drug so powerful that you knew the moment it goes into affect.

I have to say... it was kind of a spare of the moment appointment to get my wisdom teeth out. When they called me to do it I just set up the soonest appointment to get it over with, so I didn't really tell anyone. Not even my family knew or my roommates, just a couple of people that I happened to be talking to the night before. Those few people that knew were so great to me. I got a text message from Lawanna telling me good luck that morning and to let her know if I needed anything. She text me the next morning to follow up with me too. So sweet. I had lots of people write on my facebook to send their love and make sure I was okay and to let them know if I needed anything. I also got lots of hugs.. which is what I wanted and needed... because when I feel like crap, I just want to feel loved. Jessica went and got me ice cream, Sara made sure I got home okay when I was on lortab. Rachel was super sweet and came by the next day and brought me a mini cake that was wrapped in purple... one of my favorite colors. And a little card. She is so sweet. It totally made my day. I really do have great friends and I appreciate them a lot. So thank you!

The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are like the worst kind of shows on TV. But funny, Amy actually was talking about the same thing to me yesterday. I still refuse to watch.

PS all that cleaning up after others is just preparing you to be a wife and mom.

That cake looks amazing! That is my kind of drug, it takes all kinds of pain away. Hope you are feeling better soon.
