I’ll be honest, it hasn’t been the best day.
Greg and I had a little disagreement last night (which I will get into later) and the mood carried over to today. Plus, I’m stressed out at work. Oh, and this is my off week, so I am sure my hormones are wreaking havoc on me as well.
Greg left his ring home today (I’m surprised he remember to wear it the first week back) and I called him when Amelia found it on his nightstand and pretended to be upset (I really wasn’t upset) and he asked me to bring it to work and he’ll stop by to pick it up during my lunch. So, I wore his ring and showed it off at work until 2pm.
As a surprise, Greg brough me a few of my favorite items from Houlihan’s; their tai chile wings and this amazing dessert called “Ganahe Smores Envelope” and the description is:
Ganache chocolate and marshmallow melted together for a heavenly dip. Crystallized graham crackers and strawberries on the side.
really, the description doesn’t do justice for the actual dessert; and given that I don’t even like marshmallows – I want to swim in this stuff!
Also, Greg brough me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and wrote a really touching note in the card (nearly brought tears to my eyes).
After Greg’s visit, the rest of the day went down hill; I am drowning in work and begged my manager to allow me access to work from home just so I feel like I am catching-up; I developed a wicked headache that continued to get worse and worse with each passing hour (and I still have it).
Towards the end of the day Greg called me at work and was like “We’re going out to dinner! Where do you want to go?” Apparently, his co-workers were talking about restuarants they recently visisted and Greg was getting hungry and decided that he wasnt going to cook dinner tonight. So, we went to Famous Daves for some BBQ. Dinner was good, especially the ribs! And, Amelia loved her mini corn dogs.
While at Famous Daves, and in the restroom, I decided to try out one of the iPhone Apps I downloaded on Sunday: Shazam; LOVE IT! I had the pleasures of listening to:
as I pee’d.
Then, as we were waiting for our entree to arrive I heard this:
which is a really enjoyable song.
Also, I totally love the GPS feature on the phone. I got to test it out tonight because I didn’t know how to get to Famous Daves from the babysitters. So, I searched the address and it automatically found me (the blue dot) and where I wanted to go and highlighted the route. Awesome! The only downside is that it doesn’t provide the actual directions (although, I’m sure there is an App for that) so I was zoomed in and watched the street names. Either way, still a freaking awesome feature.
I believe the iPhone is the best present I’ve ever received (for my birthday); I don’t know how Greg is going to top this next year. And, as shocking as this sounds, I don’t think I want any other phone again! That is saying a lot given my cell phone addiction.
