Journal Entry #180

Jeez, I knew that December was going to fly by but, I had no idea that it would go this fast. Have we already been through a whole week? This is getting crazy, guys.

Yesterday, we didn’t do much. We both had the day off and I woke up around 3 PM… again. Boyfriend woke up at like noon, I think. It’s so hard to wake up when the house is at the perfect under-the-blankies temp.

Before dinner, we had to go to the dispensary and I also wanted to do a little more shopping at Ross. I got a few things to send out for Christmas now, I just need to go to Target to get a couple more items and then, I’ll be done with the holiday shopping. What should I buy my cats? Some toys or just a bunch of shipping boxes to sit in and scratch? Hahaha.

Dinner was really absolutely fantastic. Boyfriend is starting to call himself the Dairy-Free King because he has been able to perfect so many recipes. I don’t think he’s being cocky at all, either. His food is YUM and you can’t even tell he doesn’t use dairy. It’ll be a little bit until last night’s dinner makes it into a Recipe Reviews post so I just have to tell you!! He made a faux-CHEESY baked ziti!! We were both pleasantly surprised about how well it turned out.

While boyfriend cooked dinner, I played my Disneyland Adventures game. πŸ˜€ When it was time to eat, I watched the second half of Life-Size 2 ❀ and then, I wrote my blog post. After I published it, boyfriend and I played the Indiana Jones Lego game. We are just switching off at every stage and it takes awhile to get through each one, so when boyfriend would play, I tried to fit in reading some blogs. We went into bed around 2 AM.

Boyfriend is working the evening shift tonight but, he left earlier than usual so he could get a haircut. He sent me a picture of his new look and said “I’m hot” lol so I woke up with a giggle way past 2 PM but not quite 3 PM.

I laid in bed and read blogs on my Reader. Then, I got an e-mail saying that one of my packages had arrived but, when I got to the office they had a “We’ll be right back” sign on their door. 😑 I was so angry because it was cold and rainy outside! Also, I want my freakin’ package but I know they won’t be back until tomorrow morning. It seems they are never in the office whenever I go!

For half an hour before I decided to take a shower, I read With Love at Christmas. I am so close to the ending and while it was fun… not sure I can do another Christmas novel… they are too pointless for me. Maybe I’ll do a Christmas cozy mystery next?

When I was done with my shower and moisturizing, I heated up a bowl of that awesome ziti and watched half an episode of Star. I added some book reviews to my Goodreads account (ones I had written here but, not yet there), replied to your lovely comments, and then I started typing this.

I can’t believe it’s already almost 8 PM. Boyfriend hasn’t texted me that he’s on the way home yet which is usually when I like to start getting ready but when he is home, I start getting ready around this time so I’m starting to feel antsy like I’m not doing something I should be.

If I’m being honest… I’m probably just gonna sit here, sing, and watch lyrics on YouTube until he texts me LOL. I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend!! ❀

    1. LOL my one boy cat plays fetch but only with a balled up receipt paper and most of the time he comes back for me to throw something else when he hasn’t even brought back the first one… My girl cat will play fetch with any toy that has a bell on it & my other boy cat rolls his eyes at any and all toys, he only likes boxes lol. It seems they like household items better than the toys we get them. But we will probably end up getting them some anyways & we are also gonna get them some fancy treats!! Even though they are picky with those, too. Ours are spoiled as well!! ;D

  1. It is wild how quick this month is going by! I totally agree.
    When I used to have a cat it was so funny when I would buy her gifts, but she always preferred playing with foil more than anything. I stopped buying her gifts entirely. That faux cheesy baked ziti sounds absolutely incredible! YUM! I’d love to hear which β€œcheeses” he used? xo

    1. Yeah, seriously. December needs to slow its roll just a tiny bit… PLEASE! lol.

      Cats are so silly! Their favorite things are never store-bought toys. I used to buy them so much but, I have definitely cut back now… I can’t help myself sometimes though!! Everything is so cute lol. πŸ˜›

      & for the ziti, he actually didn’t use any faux cheese in it. It was a cashew cream sauce that turned into something similar to ricotta. It was amazing. Then, we shredded and baked that Lisanatti Original Almond cheese I always talk about on top!!

      1. Oooo he made the real-real stuff!!! That sounds SO good. I have never tried to make the cashew cream, but I bet it was tremendous! This is motivating- I may need to try my hand at homemade cheese sauce rather than just buying store bought stuff all the time!

  2. I love that cats get such a kick out of boxes so much haha. We used to just keep a box around for Zelda all the time because she loved playing with it so much! Whenever we get a package, we will inevitably find her in the box. XD We’ll be getting her a new bed for Christmas since hers has scratching posts and she’s pretty much torn them completely up lol.
    That ziti sounds absolutely fantastic!! Your boyfriend is super skilled at cooking!
    That totally sucks about your office. I hate when that happens! You know, when we toured the townhouse last Saturday, the leasing consultant said that even though they don’t have a parcel locker, if we won’t be able to get to the office before they close, we can send them an email or call and they’ll drop it off by the apartment door. Maybe that would be worth asking about at your apartment!

    1. We don’t even throw our bigger boxes away anymore. We just leave them for the cats until they shred ’em to bits– we seriously have a box corner play area for them. Boyfriend cut out a door on one of them and it’s like a little house now lol they love it. They do love their cat beds, too but, it always takes awhile of it sitting in the apartment before they’ll even touch it. The toys though… most of them are left unbothered forever lol.

      He really is such a good cook. I always tell him to be a chef but he doesn’t think he could come up with his own recipes even though he’s always tweaking the ones we use to make them perfect! I even told him I’d write his blog for him if he wants a recipe site hahaha.

      That sounds amazing about the townhouse. I would so move there just for that benefit LOL. Our office people would NEVER do that. They’d look at me crazy for asking, I think. πŸ˜›

      1. Hahaha that’s perfect for your cats!! That’s a cat’s paradise! I’m too OCD to leave boxes around but I wish I could because Zelda loves playing in them so much. I need to just ignore it lol. I love that he cut a door in one of them!! It’s like a little tower just for them! Too cute.
        I would definitely follow that blog, lol! I think it’s a great idea. And if he’s unsure about writing recipes, he could always just try with the blog on a small scale to see how it goes at first. πŸ˜‰
        Hahaha I know right, I wouldn’t ask our current office either because they would think it’s crazy too. You could maybe ask your office to consider putting in a parcel locker, though. πŸ˜‰

        1. I actually feel bad about throwing the boxes away if I see one of them sit in it. I’m like “aww you like it??” & let them keep it forever… ugh lol.

          Well, I guess until he realizes his true calling is becoming a chef– we’re stuck with just reviewing his meals using others’ recipes. πŸ˜‰

          That would be too cool if they’d install a parcel locker. I prefer not talking to them if I can help it though. πŸ˜›

          1. Hahaha aww that’s too sweet. We just ordered Zelda a fancy new cat tree for Christmas, so hopefully she likes it. πŸ˜‰ She will probably always prefer boxes though lol.

            I get it!! I prefer not talking to our office too. Sometimes they are nice and then sometimes they act like I am bothering them by coming in for a package.
