I contemplated not posting anything today as I have done nothing of note, but I'm really getting into the bloggy spirit and I figured even if this ended up being a short post I would be content.
Today I made my Chicken Alfredo again. While I was cooking we put on The Hobbit series. Extended edition, of course. After I finished cooking I sat down in the living room and watched the series from the couch. When that ended I proceeded to watch the start of the appendices. Just the first disc from the first Hobbit is four and a half hours long. Oh my.
I enjoy knowing the little stories behind the scenes, though, so I didn't mind.
I picked up my brother from school, as my sister had a dentist appointment. Will hasn't seen the extended version of the last movie.... so we watched it again LOL.
I will say, The Hobbit doesn't hold a candle to Lord of the Rings, but it does grow on you. I feel like tomorrow we're going to have to put on the original trilogy.
I forgot to mention yesterday that it was Michael and I's 8 year anniversary. Not marriage years. Just... together years. I honestly could not tell you our marriage anniversary. It does not matter to me as much as the other date. It's really weird to think that we've been together so long. The past four years especially have just flown by. People our age have children!! That's crazy to me! Not in a bad way... just a very surreal kind of way. We keep getting questions asking about our plans to have kids and I can't say anything besides "children are not in our plans at this time." Which they really aren't. I feel like that's too far away to think about. I'm still a kid in my eyes. How can I bring another being into this world??
Michael and I have an agreement not to bring up the kids talk until after my current birth control expires, which is in about 3 years. Even then I'm not sure I'd be ready. He wants kids so badly, but he's willing to wait. I'm thankful that he understands and is not pushing me to make any decisions right this minute, or anywhere in the near future.
Anyway, that's how my day went. I'm sure it'll pick up again soon, as we have yet to do any Christmas shopping. I think we're waiting for my mom to come back from her work trip to go out.
How much Christmas shopping have you done?
