The other morning, I was in my room, waiting for my house guest to leave for work.
I know, it’s my house and I should be able to go out to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee, but it was also 6am and my house guest can be extremely chatty, even in the wee hours of the morning.
I’ve wondered why she’s chatty. Is it because she thinks I want to chat? That because I don’t have much person to person contact on a daily basis, that I need to chat? I mean, I say ‘hi’ to the gym receptionist and interact with the Target cashier when she asks me how my day is, but at the end of the day, do I look like I’m friend deficient?
After the first few days of her stay, there was a decline in my ability to keep up in conversation.
Are you okay? I’m concerned because you’re not acting normal.
The truth is, I’m an introvert, and while I can be extroverted for a short moment in time, I can’t make a marathon of it. I found it funny that after a few days of knowing me, she thought that being chatty was normal for me.
Perhaps she wanted me to open up about my life, tell her my deepest secrets, and then become joy luck club sisters. I don’t know. The thing is, I’m pretty selective about who I really open to, and even then, I don’t do it quite often. It’s a trust thing… so if you’ve seen me ugly cry. Congratulations. You’re a part of my selective ugly cry squad.
Every girl needs one, a group of girls – with maybe a gay guy mixed in there – who doesn’t judge you, will drink wine with you, eat mochi cake, and candy while your waterproof mascara runs down you face. In light of Thanksgiving, my go-to gals are the best and I’m forever thankful for them.
I know, it just got emotional there, but you know what – finding amazing friends is a beautiful thing
Anyways, it’s almost Thanksgiving. Husbands mom and stepdad are coming into town soon. I’m been trying pretty hard to clean up the house, but can’t clean the spares til house guest leaves in a couple of days. Husband’s mom likes to clean while she visits, but my goal is to have her visit us and having nothing to clean
As for things I like :
Gigi Hadid Mabelline lip. They upped the price for her Mabelline line (because of her name) and it made me hesitant about getting anything from her in the first place. You can get somewhat of the same thing for less but I did get her lipstick. It’s surprisingly smooth, and moisturizing if you want to spend the extra $3-4
Starbucks – Holiday Drinks! It’s still hot in the desert (highs in the 80s), but gets cold enough in the morning to get a warm drink. My favorite part of the holidays is the peppermint drinks at Starbucks.
Christmas Display – I’ve been really good about not getting excited about Christmas too early, but ever since Michael’s and Target put up their displays in their stores, I’ve gone out of my way to peruse the aisles and just be… with my Peppermint Coffee from Starbucks. I can’t wait to decorate after Thanksgiving.
Quay Sunglasses. While a lot of the country is battling high winds and rain and storms, I’m on the market for new sunglasses.
Anyways, that’s it for know. I hope every one has a great rest of your week. 🙂 Until next time.
