Well, this will probably be the last time I post this week. Can I just say that I hate not having Internet? It would make life so much easier and I'd be so much more entertained when I'm at home!
Yesterday I stayed at home while Sean went to his EMT class on-post. He only has one more week of it and I know he's excited that it's coming to a close. Staying at home was....boring. I had the laptop, Boomer and my books to amuse me. I wanted to take Boomer on a long walk yesterday, but it was raining...again. So I chose instead to give him a bath. I don't think he was thrilled about my choice.
Today I went to the gas company again and got most of the paperwork taken care of. Minus the two pages I have to fax back to them, because the ladies at the Tax Relief Office didn't have Sean sign them. I don't mean to be rude, but isn't that your job? And isn't that the reason why I couldn't pick them up the original day I dropped them off because he had to sign them? I'm just saying......
I'm not sure what Sean and I are doing this weekend. I'd like to meet Casey, because she's in-country, but I'm unsure of how I would get to wherever to meet her. Yes, I'm aware we have buses and trains, but I'm not sure how I'd get to said train station. ARGH! Where is my car!
I'm sorry to be somewhat grouchy, I just have to say that waiting for my things and car to get to Europe is getting really frustrating. I DON'T like having to rely on someone to take me places.
Anyway, Sean and I wanted to go to Venice this weekend, since it's Carnivale there (aka their version of Mardi Gras) but I don't think we'll be able to. I dropped the big hint today that I don't expect anything big for Valentines Day, but I do expect something.
I'm not kidding when I tell you that my husband is possibly the least romantic man I've ever been involved with. He simply does not do presents well....at all. It's like I have to give him a detailed print-out of what I want or go with him to pick it out. I don't like doing that. I like the element of suprise. I actually told him at lunch today that him not trying to do something on holidays sends the message to me that I'm not special. He tried to tell me that's not how he feels, but it just comes off like that to me.
I'm not sure if that stems from him not really liking to receive presents himself, but I actually handed him a book in the PX that's title was something like "1001 Romantic Ideas" and told him to read and apply.
I don't mean to vent about my husband, but I have to admit that after reading some of your posts about the sweet things your husbands buy you or things of that nature make me a teensy bit jealous.
Perhaps your husbands can give mine some tips?
Anyway, I hope that all of you have a wonderful and romantic Valentine's Day. Care to share your plans with me?
