Tots!

Hey guys! So first I wanted to apologize, I did not post yesterday. I was going to at first, but then I just lost the energy lol. I’ll explain further in a bit. So, I just wanted to give a big shout out because I reached 20 followers today! I am so happy and so grateful to you guys for caring enough to read my daily ramblings lol. Thank you guys so much! To explain why I did not post yesterday, I’ll start from the beginning. We woke up super excited because it was the day of the beer and tater tots festival. Then we realized there were signs all along our street saying the streets were going to be swept and we had to move our cars. So at the risk of being late to the festival, we had to find a spot for all 3 of our cars, because we were riding with our friends. It normally would not have been a big deal, but our old 80’s Volkswagen does not have the best battery and we had to jump him from the jeep to get it going enough to move it to the side street. Then we rode up to Columbus. I always love the car ride up there. It’s almost 3 hours 1 way. I just love long car rides in general lol. Plus it was a gorgeous day, super sunny and very hot.  It also always reminds me how beautiful all the Ohio farmland is. Miles and miles of crops and animals, always takes my breath away. So when we got there the city was beautiful as usual. The festival was at a park in the middle of town. It was really fun. I had several different varieties of tater tots, and I also had a hard cider from one of the beer vendors that was very good. Over all it was just fun to be out in the sun in the big city. I loved it. I took a couple photos. I’ll be posting those tomorrow. So we got home, and Tommy and I had a very long discussion regarding the house situation. In which I basically told him we told him we don’t have to move, but if we don’t move, we have to get the very best security system humanly possible. It was not up for debate. So after that discussion I was just very mentally exhausted and that is why I did not post anything. Although I think based on his thoughts today, he is ready to move. We have set up a second appointment for the particular house we have really liked. I’m excited but I’m not getting my hopes up in case he backs out, or we make an offer and they don’t take it, really anything could go wrong, so I’m mentally preparing myself. Today was pretty hectic as well. So it is super late here, so I’m going to head to bed, I’ll be back tomorrow. Bye Guys!

Stalemate

Hey guys! So today was a pretty average day at work. So in between calls Tommy and I spent some time discussing the new house thing. He keeps going back to how much cheaper and easier it would be to not move, and I realize this, but no matter how many repairs we do to the house, we can’t fix the neighborhood. The whole reason we are moving is that we cannot trust the neighborhood anymore. He just has a connection with the house and keeps clinging to it. He says we can pay this house off in five years and then move, but in my opinion it’s pointless to throw down another 50 grand on a house you won’t be staying in long term. I also just don’t want to wait five years to start a family, or make bigger plans. I understand sentimental value, but I also know how heartbroken he would be if some junkie broke into the house and stole one of his guitars. I’m not trying to dog my BF, I’m just frustrated about the whole situation lol. So for now we are in the same stalemate about the house thing. In other more positive news, tomorrow is the beer and tater tots festival! I don’t care about the beer, but I love tater tots with a passion. I also love any excuse to go to Columbus. (I also will take any chance to get off work lol) Well guys I have to be up early because its a pretty long drive, so I’m headed to bed, but I’ll catch up with you guys tomorrow. Bye!

Plans and Disappointments

Hey guys! So first I wanted to apologize for not posting yesterday. What happened was, I planned to just do a post with a bunch of cute pics from the game I am playing, but then I found out my stupid chrome book does not support regular sized SD cards! This is just the latest disappointment I have learned about my chrome book. It does not support any software a windows computer does. It gets really frustrating, but I can’t complain too much, because this is my fault. I got this chrome book from a reward program at work for free, and stupid me, did not do enough research about which computer to get. I was just so excited about getting a computer again, I just got the first one I saw. I’m seriously considering getting a little windows laptop as well, but then I would kind of feel stupid for having two computers. I keep going back and forth on that. Anyways lol, by the time I learned I could not upload my pics, it was way too late and I honestly could not think of anything else to write about. Today though, I have some exciting news. We have a ton of stuff planned for the next few weeks. First, we have our local comic book convention. That is set for June 3rd and I am so excited. We even took the day off work so I can really spend some time there. Normally when we go to conventions we can only look around for a minute because we have to do other stuff. I’ll be posting my haul from the con that night. Hopefully, I will be able to get this vintage Rosie O’Donnell Barbie that a vendor had last year. I know it sounds silly, but its something I have never seen before, and I love Rosie O’Donnell, so hopefully they bring it again. Then June 8th is Tommy and I’s  3 year anniversary. He is really bad with dates so I hope he remembers lol. Either way, we will do something special. Then just a couple days later on the 11th, we are attending a Beer and Tater Tots festival in Columbus OH. When our friends first mentioned this, I thought they were joking. They were not. So while I don’t drink beer, I am a huge fan of Tots, so I’m pretty excited. Plus any excuse to go to Columbus is good enough for me lol. It might just be that living in a small city, I enjoy being in a bigger city(because I’m a huge city person), but I really think that its something about this city. So after that, we are planning to go to a higher stakes trivia game. Right now we just do the two at local places for gift cards. We don’t know where they are having the bigger one, but we do know, first prize is 4,000 US Dollars. If we won, there’s 4 of us including me and Tommy, so that’s a grand a piece. I’m super excited. I hope we win. I also kind of hope its in a city I haven’t been to, because again I love a chance to explore a big city lol. I will be posting pics from that as well, especially if we win. Well I think that’s about all for tonight, I will be back tomorrow, Bye Guys!
