also, when i tried to "drizzle" chocolate on top it just plopped on top of it can you tell? like that one up front? i tried to just spread the chocolate around but it didn't work out too well. actually it worked out just as it should, it looks messed up. i don't know why i thought that would make it look better. i almost tried washing it off but that seemed a little to extreme so i gave up. i was so frustrated and still kept doing it on 5 more thinking that magically it would work with out me changing up the technique. anyway, that is why some of the balls are "special", just so you know. haha. special balls.
i was so confused at first as to what almond bark was. i don't care for almonds but then when i went to the store and saw that it is pretty much just bricks of chocolate and way easier to used then a bag of chocolate chips or hershey bars, i went for it. very easy!
so lately i have been having a lot of fun messing around with blog layouts. i am not pro or anything, by any means. but i have forced myself how to figure out HTML which i am surprised that i even bothered messing around with. it has been kinda fun though and i figured out how to make a favicon, that is the little heart thing up in the URL instead of the blogger symbol. i asked my smart co-worker what that thing was even called and when he first told me i thought he said "flavicon" which i thought was so much cooler...like flava flave or something. i was sort of disappointed to find out it was not really called that. i even made one for my sisters photography website :) it was fun. if anyone is ever having layout issues, or wants to move something around on their blog but don't want to mess anything up, i would be happy to help! free of charge of course! keep in mind i only know a little so don't expect much! anyway, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
anyway, things have been so crazy busy lately. as much as i love the holidays and all of the breaks, i am kind of looking forward to getting back on a normal schedule/routine. i guess i never really have a consistent one anyway. last night i went to bed at 4 a.m. 4 a.m? what is wrong with me? sean went to bed at 11.
i am learning that we only spend like 3 hours in our actual bed together. last night it was actually less because he got a phone call at 4 in the morning and had to leave to go help out a friend. so we spent like no time in the bed together. because when he got back he went and tried to sleep on the couch but couldn't.
i think when we got married i thought we would learn to compromise on things like this. perhaps i would go to bed earlier, and he would sleep in a little or something. well no, that hasn't happened. we are both not willing to budge. sean was up since 4 am and i fell asleep around 5 am and woke up at 12:30. he never went back to bed. even though he wanted to. he said he didn't want to not be able to sleep that night.
i don't think like that? i am like this.. "i am tired. i am taking a nap."
sean is like, "i am tired but will not be able to get a good night's rest if i take a nap. so i will do laundry instead."
sean says, "oh man, i only have 4 pairs of clean underwear left. guess i better do some laundry."
i am like, "LUCKY. don't rub it in. guess i should run to the store and get some more."
sean is like, "i am gaining weight. i need to go to the gym every other day. even at 6 am on a saturday morning."
i am like, "that is freaking against my religion and i will not do that. that is a disgrace to the sleep gods."
sean complains about being sore from the gym.
i laugh and say, "that is why i don't work out. because then your body is sore, and you have to keep up with it, and when you don't? it gets sore all over again when you start back up. i don't think my body would appreciate me treating it that way. why would it want to be in pain? my body likes to be comfortable on the couch. i think it makes me healthier. inactivity. it's better on the joints and bones."
sean is like, "we should plan dinner out for the week."
i am like, "great, i will call chili's and see if they deliver."
sean wants to put the christmas tree away.
i feel like that is kind of insensitive to the spirt of christmas. if crazy christmas lady can keep her stuff up til april, i think we can keep it up a little longer. besides, i don't want to put it up yet because there is a marathon on tv right now and i really don't want to miss it kill the christmas spirit just yet.
when sean has about a week or 2 before he is going to run out of a prescription, he gets it ordered and filled ahead of time.
i usually miss 3 or 4 days of whatever medication i am on because i run out and "don't have time to get to the store because i can't miss the biggest loser am way too busy. being all productive and stuff."
guess if we end up prego it's my fault. but at the same time, it's not really, right? why can't guys use the ring or take birth control. WTH (who the hell... i think i just made up my own OMG slang) came up with that? probably a dude. i wanna smack him in his baby maker and show him what's up.
have you ever seen "What Happens in Vegas"? with Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz? my favorite part is the end when her friend and his friend go to the ex's house and she punches him in the privates and he says, "WHY?" and she says, "YOU KNOW WHY." that is what i would like to do. to the MAN that invented birth control for women to take.
here is the clip. i love it so much.
anyway, i mentioned before that sean got up in the middle of the night to go help a friend. i started to feel guilty because i have turned my phone on silent at night ever since that incident with my cousin missing. remember that? what if someone really needed me? i act like i am a store or something that is only available from 8 am to midnight. well anyway, sean got up with no hesitation and went to help his buddy out. he drove up the canyon to help get his truck un-stuck. i wish i was more like him. that is why i have decided to help out anyone that needs yummy treat recipes, cool TV show suggestions, or help with their blog layouts :) it is my contribution to feel less bad about myself since i am married to freaking Gahndi.
p.s. i am sorry my posts are so long. i know i need to cut them down, because let's face it, who really has time to read the whole thing? sigh. i just feel incomplete if i don't say everything that i am trying to say. even if it makes no sense to anyone else. that is just the kind of person i am. remember this post? yeah, it is like that.
