Ever have those moments where you feel like life is good but there’s nothing new to report?
I’ve been feeling like that. My life is moving along swimmingly. (sidenote: I wonder why the word swimmingly means “effortless” because if you’ve ever been a competitive swimmer, you know it’s not effortless at all but a killer workout instead)
There’s no drama, no friends I’m fighting with, I haven’t argued with my mom in a long time (have I finally outgrown it?), Eric and I haven’t had one of our silly fights, I actually like my job…I mean the list of happy things just goes on and on.
But what happened to the drama? Quite honestly, I don’t really miss it. So I’m not going to complain that my life is so simple and easy going right now. Could we have more money? Sure. But we’re not destitute, we enjoy small things here and there, go on mini vacations and have a grand ole time most of the time.
This weekend, I went to happy hour with my friends Friday night, and three out of the four were married. We definitely clung on to our single friend for some dating drama.The excitement!
No, I don’t miss it, but it is fun to reminisce. On Saturday, Eric and I went to a co-ed baby shower. Talk about scary. The couple is the exact same age as us, but now they’re in a whole other ball game. And our other married couple friends are preggers, too. Babies are everywhere! On a sidenote, the baby shower had little mini diaper cakes as centerpieces, and I showed Eric how cute they were, and he asked me what they were. He didn’t know they were diapers…oh dear.
That evening, we went on a long walk with the only (furry) child we need in our life right now, watched Dexter, and then spent Sunday at my parents’ house, where I saved $10 by doing my laundry there rather than the laundromat. Life is good.
How was your weekend? Any drama? Let me live vicariously through you.
