today we added a new member to our family. . .
bahhh!! isn't she adorable??
okay not really. don't have a heart attack mom. :)
but i texted sean these pictures and told him it was the newest member of our family. this is how are conversation went:
sean: "no way! you're messin with me aren't ya?"
chloe: "she is going to protect me."
sean: "whose dog is it?"
(i am still trying to text him back but he keeps sending messages)
sean: "but chlo, he is so little."
sean: "he's freakin' cute though. are you being serious?"
"why would i joke about something so serious as this precious little creature? and he is a she. and she is named charlie. and charlie is going to get pretty big. and she is awesome. so you should want me to be serious."
then i tried to change the subject so i said, "how's the drive?"
then he called me and said, "ARE YOU BEING SERIOUS?"
i finally said, "do you really think i would buy a puppy without telling you?"
"absolutely yes. i think you would."
hmmmm.. yeah he is probably right. sean calls me before he buys a pack of gum. just to make sure i am okay with that. i don't expect him to at all. actually, today he called me to let me know that he purposely left his keys on the nightstand. just so that i was aware. i guess?
sean will walk into the bedroom while i am in there lounging in bed, look all around the mess in the room, then look at me, and i will say, "oh, just so you know it's a mess in here." that is how i do it.
i'll go shopping at the mall, spend way too much money and text sean after and say, "don't hate me.."
then he will say, "oh no. how much did you spend?"
i don't really spend a lot on clothes. but i guess i just don't really think about calling him before i make those purchases. maybe i am secretly hoping he just won't notice. maybe he usually doesn't so it all works out. but then he is so considerate and calls me and then i feel guilty because he probably has no idea how much money i actually spend on "stupid/useless but totally awesome shiny things that i have to have".
we have this problem when we grocery shop too. i am terrible. absolutely terrible. i will manage to spend like 2 hours and $100 and not have anything that will make an actual meal. do we have loads of snacks and treats and make-up and air fresheners and $5 movies? yes. but i manage to somehow get everything that we don't really need. well i need it. but whatever.
sean will go to the store and spend 30 minutes and $40 and have enough food to make 37 different meals. i don't get it.
i can't go to target and NOT spend over $100. i did once..i spent $99 and it was probably one of my most happy moments in my life.
hmmm.. maybe i need to find some bigger dreams...
*by the way, the puppy belongs to a girl that i work with. i am so jealous*
