This week has been the same as pretty much every other week has been. Work, work, and work. Spending my free time with M.
On Wednesday, we took my parents out to dinner. We went to a Mexican restaurant by the name of Azteca. It was actually a really nice time. We’d been out with M’s parents several times, so it was nice to catch up with my parents; have M get some face time with them. I’m not really a huge family kind of person – I mean, I love my family, don’t get me wrong – but compared to M, I don’t have that strong of a connection with them. I think it really comes from the military life M and his family had. Moving around a lot like that really pulled them all closer together. Where as with my family, while we did move around a little bit, we didn’t really bond quite that strongly. I’ll always be there for my family when they need me, but I’m not really compelled to spend that much time with them.
Tomorrow is my 26th birthday. I have the day off work (thank you, paid time off!), and M took the day off, too. The plan was to be able to spend two whole days together (we have Sundays off, too). Well, the plan was to do things for Father’s Day with our respective fathers, but that all kinda went down the drain when M’s cold or virus or whatever kind of disease he has caught up with him and made him very sick all day. At the rate my poor M was throwing up, I doubt we’ll be able to spend much time together tomorrow, either. He’s finally going to see a doctor, so hopefully he’ll get his health straightened out.
At least my dad had a nice Father’s Day. My brother and I were able to be home and have dinner together as a family. Dad was recently in the hospital (he’s fine now, it was just a bit of an issue with his heart), so it was nice to be able to have everyone together. I know my dad appreciated it, and that’s what really matters.
In other news, my parents put down a chunk of money towards an iPad for my birthday. I got the last part of my signing bonus on this last paycheck, too, so it really was a happy birthday for me! Well, at least so far. I still have all of tomorrow for my birthday to get even better. My lovely, amazing boyfriend got me Japanese versions of Red, Blue, Yellow, Crystal, the TCG and Green! Those are Pokemon games, if you weren’t aware, dear readers. It’s a really thoughtful and sweet gift, especially because M knew I had copies of most of those games, but they got stolen when my apartment was robbed a couple of years ago.
And now, as a continuation of my birthday celebration, I think I’m going to play some Borderlands. I haven’t sat down and had myself a good gaming session outside of Pokemon Y, and I’m long overdue. Cuddle up with the kittens in my chair and shoot the living shit out of some skags.
