Happy Monday! (not really, but I'm trying to be more optimistic!) HA! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. So I didn't blog on Saturday or Sunday, hope I didn't miss out on any views. ;)
Let's start out with a weekend re-cap. Friday, after work, I did head out to the BF's parents' place. They did however, change their minds about the restaurant choice. They had picked La Hacienda, which is a steakhouse/Mexican food place. I had never been, and I always enjoy trying new restaurants, so I was excited. We got there JUST IN TIME, right as we walked in to give our name, a big ass bus pulled in and I swear 40-50 people came in. Whew, close call! Anyway, while we sat and waited with our light-up coaster, (what's up with those weird things anyway?) we had some chips & salsa (I'd kill to get my hands on that recipe) and one of the best margaritas I've ever had. I usually get a marg at every restaurant I have dinner at, so I guess I'm a margarita connoisseur, HA! ;) Anyway, hands down, best fajitas I've ever had! The BF & I did the combo fajitas for two. I ate so many, I was miserably full & drunk when we left, but all in all, it was a good night and fun was had by all. :)
Saturday, while the BF worked his rare Saturday afternoon shift, I headed to spend some time with my dad and little sister. My dad and I headed to the car dealership to see about possibly trading in my car for something with less than 18% interest rate! Yes, 18%. They are screwing me ridiculously. I've had my car for 3 1/2 years, and I just NOW finished paying off the interest. How do these people sleep at night?! Ugh, back to the story. :) Basically, the guy told us that since I still owe more than what the car is even worth, I'm going to need a pretty hefty down payment if I want to trade it in. Efffffff that! The salesman told me, "Well you could sell it outside for about $6000." Why in the HELL would I do that, I owe $9000. I'm still short $3000 buddy! Needless to say, I was pissed. So, I left with my POS car (not really, but I was mad) and I'm stuck with it at least until it's paid off.
Dilemma #1 - We got back to my dad's and we had "the chat". By this, I mean, my dad wants me to move in with him and my little sister. They have an extra bedroom, and I will be without a job in a month for a month. (I have to do an externship for school) he's offering to help me out. I'm having a hard time weighing the pros and cons of the situation. Pros - I will save money (which I won't have a lot of anyway since I won't be working), I won't be lonely (I'm a people person, and don't really feel the need for a lot of "alone time"), I won't have to pay for utilities, I won't have so many leftovers when I cook. Cons - My dad and sister will get on my nerves and vice versa, 2 dogs that shed, which cause my allergies to go haywire, they both smoke (which is also hated by my allergies), having to break my lease (but my dad did say he'd help me pay it out so hopefully they won't report it to my credit because I do not plan on living with them long-term, I want my own place as soon as a I find a job as an MA). Help me people, what would you do in my situation? I know what I NEED to do, but it's not really what I want to do..ya know?
Dilemma #2 - The BF is going out of town this weekend for his Dad's & little brother's birthday/Father's day, so I thought it'd be the perfect weekend for a girls' weekend, right?! :) Well, my 3 best friends live about an hour and a half away from me (they still live where I grew up), and my dilemma is getting them to come to Dallas to see ME! I usually end up going to them, and not that I don't love seeing them, but I only think it's fair that they come to me every now and then too. Am I right? Plus, I am struggling with money lately (obviously by dilemma #1), and I don't really have the gas money to take a 3 hour round-trip drive. Buuut, if they couldn't come, I know I'd come to them because I just love them OH SO MUCH. And I always feel so good after a weekend with my girls. It's like therapy. <3
Dilemma #3 - I am having a very hard time sleeping at night. On the weekends, I sleep SO sound, I think it's mainly because I have the BF right next to me and I feel so safe and secure. My worries just go out the window and I SLEEP! Sunday nights are the hardest nights to fall asleep. For one, I sleep in on Sunday mornings, and two, it's first night away from the BF for a whole week. I have a theory that if I set my alarm for like 30 minutes before I need to actually get out of bed, then I will have the opportunity to hit snooze a couple of times and be "semi-awake" by the time I actually need to get up. This got me in trouble this morning. I think I may have hit "dismiss" instead of "snooze". I have to be at work by 8am, and I woke up at 7:51am. I've never jumped out of bed so fast in my life! I hate, hate, HATE being late (even though I usually always am anyway), so I was rushing around, and needless to say, I look like I partied a little too hard or something last night. My hair is a mess, my outfit looks like I don't give a shit, and I didn't have time for make-up. Ugh!
That's all for now. I'm loving the friends I'm making on here though. You guys are so sweet with your comments. :) See ya tomorrow!! xoxo
