Gone Too Far

25 08 2011

I really thought I was going to get better at keeping you all updated.. many apologies.

Don’t tell anyone, but I usually write my blogs at work, but the past while I’ve been super busy basically refurbishing our entire lab. We had to sort through every chemical and decide whether or not we still needed or not and/or if it was expired. Then we scrubbed and swept and organized everything else. At first everyone was helping, but that last about a day. Then it was virtually all me. I’m SO tired of chemicals. I just finished organizing and alphabetizing our dry chemical cabinet and there are 320 some chemicals in there alone. Eff.
So no blog writing at work for me unfortunately.

My slight OCD might have had me secretly enjoying this

It’s been 9 days since I last posted and I MIGHT struggle to remember everything that happened since then. But one thing that comes to my mind pretty quickly is that it was my birthday! I turned 22 on Sunday and had a really great weekend celebrating it! Jeff and I decided to make the weekend a little more ‘us’ focused and slightly romantic since it was my birthday but also because it was Jeff’s last weekend in Fredericton. So Friday we just hung out at home, cleaned up a bit, watched some of our favourite shows, played some games etc. It was relaxed and very necessary after our long week of work.

Saturday we had an upbeat date and the two of us had some drinks and went out! What wasn’t so unfortunate at the time but what turned out to be unfortunate was the amount of alcohol that we decided to consume. We drank everything.
We each had a bottle of wine at home before we went out and split a 6 pack. Then when we got to the bar we had a great time dancing but also had about 5 more drinks of hard liquor at the bar. We met some friends there and went back to their place and they gave us another beer.
We drank too much. I knew we were drinking too much the whole time. Where was my discipline?

Consequently, Sunday was spent trying to heal. I was a wreck. I had to make myself sick in the morning in an attempt to feel better, my head was pounding… not fun at all. So my actual “birthday” was a bit of a write off but I had so much fun Saturday night that it really wasn’t an issue šŸ™‚ Plus it was nice to just lay in bed with Jeff taking care of me.

Monday night a couple friends came to East Side’s for apps and drinks for a modest celebration. The apps were delicious as always and I got some really sweet gifts! If any of you gift givers are reading, I really appreciate your thought! I was smiling all night. However, please note that gifts are not and never will be expected! I’m not huge on birthday attention so if in the future you’re unsure about getting me a gift, you really don’t have to worry about it šŸ™‚

A few other quick mentions of goings-on over the past week, Jeff and I spent one of the nicer afternoons after work at the park! We just brought some snacks, our books, and the iPod+speaker and read in the sun. We also MAY have played a sailor moon drinking game one night too. HILARIOUS. Leave a comment if you’d like me to explain the rules.

We had a skype date with Serena! She’s in Ireland.. err.. was in Ireland, she’s in England again now but she’s coming back to Freddy this weekend! I won’t be seeing her until the 15th though, which really is too bad but I’ll be in Ontario until then.

I also got a haircut!

I think that might be all… I hope you all had a good week!
