Thoughtful Posting
So, I was reading over at my old friend SeanMC's blog, and saw that he has posted for the first time in a very long time. I was so impressed by what he wrote about marriage that I thought I would link to it so all of you can take a look if you feel so inclined.

It is in two parts, so here they are:

Part I

Part II

I promise that things are going to start getting less hectic in the coming weeks, and I will be able to post more regularly. What with the new job, the new house, and the loss of Miss Annabelle, I seem to have little time for this little corner of the Internet. I am going to start making more time, however, because I'm really beginning to miss it!

St. Paddy's Day Fun
Last night we all went to Pete's Duelling Piano Bar to celebrate our friend Matt's 30th birthday. It was a lot of fun, and I drank way too many martinis. In my inebriated state, I decided to invite everyone over after we left the bar, so after grabbing Taco Cabana on the way, we made it home and Eric, Dean, and Frank showed up shortly after, and we partied until dawn! Well, not exactly. More like 2 am, but I was impressed that I could keep up until then!

Here's a photo representative of the night--the rest of them are over at my Flickr page.

Today, I woke up reminded of exactly why I don't drink very often, for I had quite the hangover. DH went to meet Eric for lunch, but I spent most of the day on the couch and watched Marie Antoinette. Not a bad movie--loved the costumes, scenery, and music, but the dialogue was very stilted, and I can't say that I was very impressed with Kirsten Dunst's performance.

Right now I'm waiting for the lasagna to cook so DH and I can have dinner and gear up to watch Battlestar Galactica. Yee Haw!

New Look

I thought it was time for a template change. What do you think??

Happy Friday, everyone......after a quite stressful day, DH and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings for some dinner. I had some chicken tenders and two very large beers, so I believe I am participating in what Liz calls "blunking." Although I really don't have anything interesting to say, so I guess I'm not a very good blunker.

We also bought the new Dance Dance Revolution for the XBOX 360, which is quite interesting, especially when you're a bit tipsy. I think I'm going to go supervise DH's dancing now....

Thoughts on the Past Week
Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments on the passing of Annabelle. We're all doing a lot better now, but the first couple of days after were very hard. I'm constantly watching Joey now, looking for the slightest sign of depression or mopiness, because now I'm so paranoid that he's going to get really depressed since she's not here anymore and just start wasting away. So far, I think he's fine--he's still eating, and aside from being a little clingier than usual, it doesn't seem like anything's changed. I still get a little catch in my heart, though, when I walk into the bedroom and see him curled up in a sunbeam all by himself, when he used to have Annabelle next to him. I just don't know if I'm projecting my feelings of sadness and loneliness on to him, or if he really is sad and lonely. I guess all I can do is wait and watch, huh?

I also feel guilty that now he's the odd cat out in the household, because Blackjack and Kino are their own little pair, and now Joey has no one. I feel like he needs a companion, but want to wait until a bit more time passes to get another friend for him.

The house is going along pretty well. We bought a table for the hallway between the front room and the back rooms, along with a mirror to top it. DH has also really made his video game room look very nice, and when we get the pictures hung in there I will be sure to take pictures. We're also waiting on the delivery of our new couch, which hopefully should come in the next week or so. Can't wait for that! :)

The majority of the stuff we need to do for the house is to just buy stuff. We need pictures for the walls, tables and barstools--I didn't realize just how much space we had to fill until we moved in! Even my kitchen cabinets are twice as large!

I'd better get moving and keep on unpacking. Sometimes I wonder if we'll ever be done....
