maybe i'm okay with that?


a year ago from tonight, Sean and i were in Vegas together with a bunch of our friends. we were walking the strip, after eating at ESPN Zone. 



for some reason, we were having a conversation about women who give birth naturally, and women who choose to have the drugs. because i am sure that everybody talks about that with people they have been just sort of dating for a week. right? anyway, i told him i for sure would be one of those people who need the drugs. the next words out of his mouth were, 

"don't worry Chloe, we will make sure you get the drugs."

we? i don't think he even realized what he had said. i didn't know what to think. or how to feel. did i like him saying that? did it freak me out? normally i would have run for the hills. but throughout that night, i thought about how that might not be so bad. maybe i felt okay with him saying we.

the next night we shared our first kiss. this may be TMI. but a few months later, he told me that i had made him bleed. hahaha. oops. i didn't realize i was that aggressive. or maybe Sean is just a wimp. yeah that must be it.

anyway, i never would have thought that a year later we would be where we are now, but it is pretty sweet. sure, we did it all pretty fast. faster than either of us ever would have normally wanted. but when it's right it's right, and we never looked back.

today we went fishing up at Strawberry. and by fishing, i mean that i took a nap in the truck while Sean fished with our friends. last night in our softball tournament, i got hit in my right hand by the ball that someone threw pretty hard at me. my hand was way swollen after, and so i had taken some pain killers on the way up to go fishing. 

Sean caught a crawdad. so that that was pretty cool. i slept, read gossip magazines, ate an entire box of bunch a crunch, and milked my injured hand for all it was worth. okay it is not horribly injured. but really, it does hurt pretty bad and is bruising. and by bruising, i mean that i think it will bruise. there is a little purple coming through the skin. it's pre-bruised right now. that is how serious this injury is guys.

the downside to this hurt hand? i am not sure if i will be able to cook. probably not clean either. or do laundry. especially no dishes. dangit. i guess that is just life sometimes though, right? i am sure i will get through this trial within a few months or so. maybe longer. we will see. 

on a positive note? miraculously i can still type a really long, pointless, grammatically incorrect, rambling blog post. i guess maybe we can pick and choose our battles?

lately i have been bookmarking easy recipes for dinner. and by easy, i mean not too many ingredients. i don't want to spend too long at the store buying the ingredients for Sean. i am sure he will appreciate this though, because i think he is getting tired of cooking the same old things for dinner. he needs some new recipes. 

feel free to contribute any that you think Sean would be willing to make. he made a killer potato salad the other night, if anyone is interested in the recipe, let Sean know! he might need a lot of recipes, because i certainly am out of commission for the next several months.

p.s. our fridge broke. again. right after i went shopping. i know this is why we are not meant to cook. and by we i mean i. guess we will have to eat out for the next week. dang.

That sucks about your fridge. At least it's getting cold. You can just leave the heater off and let everything stay cold naturally....

OK.. so what's up with the "advice for the psycho.." part above this comment box? You're no psycho. You can visit C's work to meet one of those.

There is the greatest website ever! It's called stolenmomentscooking.com She is amazing, and kind of taught me how to cook because she posts pictures of what it's supposed to look like and her instructions are pretty clear. Not all of them are short on ingredients, but they're easy to follow.
