See ya next week!

Every single time we have a road trip, TheCount stays up really late the night before, forcing me to drive the entire way because I don't want him to fall asleep and kill us on the road. Last night he went to bed at 4am and had to get up at 7 for work. I'm beginning to think he does it on purpose cuz dude never stays awake that late. Our first road trip was a 13 hour trip to South Carolina- this fool did not go to bed the night before. I had to drive the entire trip (well I didn't have to, but stubbornness kicked in halfway there and I refused to give up the wheel). I just don't understand why he waits until the night before to pack, do laundry, get a haircut, go to his friend's house to pick up some clothes, clean the fish tank, open his perfect push up package and try it out, play with his toes for no good reason, sit and watch new tv shows, clean the bathroom (something he hasn't done in our year of marriage, lol), and cuddle up behind me so close I fell off the bed at 4 in the frikking morning. Yep, all of those things occurred at the apartment last night. I just kept looking at him like he was crazy and then got in the bed. He doesn't even remember me elbowing him in the face as I got back in the bed from falling. I was so mad at him, but my sleep was so good, I fell right back out. Humidifier + Heated Mattress Pad= Heaven
Now that I finished putting TheCount on blast, let me put myself on blast. I have lost my everloving mind. I don't know where my self control went, but I will be happy when it returns. I have a new pair of jeans, 3 new shirts, a necklace, a bracelet,a pair of earrings, and 2 new purses that I bought because I hadddddddd to have it. I got a dang snug.gie because "ohhhh pink! And I have a coupon, it's only $10 now." What is wrong with me? I've been sneaking bags into the house and hiding them in the closet- if that doesn't scream issues and horrible wife, what does? Ughhhh. I think I got it out of my system though. No more buying things- even if the deal is really good. Unless it's $2.99, cuz that's my magic price, I'll buy anything for $2.99.
So, TheCount has a new position at work, that he's really excited about. He's been at it a week so far going through training and such. Next week he has to fly out twice to go somewhere and do some work. Then on October 19 he has to go to Tampa for a project. I'm excited too- cooking and cleaning for one is a breeze. We don't know about the pay yet. His company tends to give raises after the training is completed because they want to make sure you pass all your tests and get certified. I think he should get 2 raises. One for switching departments, and another when training is complete. We'll see what happens.

LOL to Mr. C's shenanigans the night before a trip...LOL
Congrats on his new position as well. I hope he gets to take you along on some of the trips. I know a couple where the husband sometimes has to go to China, India etc. and his wife goes with him from time to time...FUN!
Have a great trip and enjoy the drive..LOL

Enjoy your trip and try to just relax and enjoy yourself. Where you eat and what you do isn't half as important as who you are with.
