When two houses merge

I’m such a slacker lately. I woke up at 8, 9, and 10 and was wide awake all three times, but stayed in bed because it was so comfortable. Jon and I just switched back to the bed we bought together the first time we were together (I bought a new bed when we broke up, but it was a deep queen bed and not a regular height queen bed) and my favorite sheets finally fit on it! I could lay in bed forever. Which is exactly what I’ve been doing all week. When I get burnt out on school and work, I tend to crave tons of sleep. Sleeping in until 10 (and 11 yesterday) is really not normal for me, but I’m kind of enjoying it. Besides, tomorrow is back to work for me and the next two weeks are busy. Then I have most of the week of Thanksgiving off since both of my sisters and my nephew are coming into town! Holidays are never big in my family at all since we don’t live near any extended family, so I’m super excited that everybody is going to be together for the holiday and my oldest sister is finally getting to meet Jon for the first time. I’m also extremely grateful to have Jon with me over this holiday season since I was without him last year!

Speaking of Jon, he just officially moved his stuff in last week. The house is a disaster. I have a washer just hanging out in the middle of the living room since we can’t put it outside until this coming Sunday (who knew that our trash service had a bulky item pickup?! that could have been gone already!). Jon got two boxes of stuff from his ex girlfriend yesterday and brought those home, which were full of kitchen stuff. While I have more big stuff (and clothes and shoes), Jon seems to have tons of little stuff. Tons of it. And tons of papers. He collects more receipts and papers than I would ever know what to do with. And instead of just putting them in the trashcan, he sets them on the coffee table or kitchen counter or dresser. Random cords appear out of nowhere. Cloths for cleaning his Jeep show up on the kitchen table. While I am so happy that he has moved in with me for good, it is still frustrating for somebody like me (Type A, doesn’t like anything to be out of its place!) to have this stuff all over the place. I’m trying not to nag him to put things away, but it’s not working out so well for me. I think I’m probably the most obnoxious person on the face of the planet right now. That scary thing is that he still has an entire storage unit that we’re going to try and move into this house too. We’re definitely going to be selling things on Craigslist, and then once I buy new furniture we’re trashing what we have.

I’m looking forward to December when we both finish our finals and can really go through everything we have. I feel like I got rid of a bunch of random stuff before I moved into my house in June, so I don’t know how much I’ll have to get rid of. I did tell him I’d try again to slim down my closet, but that’s about all I feel like will be able to go. I’m also really looking forward to being able to afford a laptop and getting rid of my entire computer desk! I’m even considering just trashing it in December when I finish my computer science class because I am so tired of it and it takes up so much space in the extra bedroom.

This is all totally random. I need to go study. My biology test is at 5:30 tonight and I’d like to go running before I take it. I’m only going to do about 2 miles to test out my new running shoes so it should be a quick run and I’ve decided just to do it right outside my condo instead of driving to my preferred running spot. But I’m slacking and haven’t even made it through a full chapter of studying since I’ve been up and am about to have to prepare my chicken for the crockpot. Oh well. I already committed to this being the test grade I’ll probably have to drop. Jon leaves tonight for a hunting trip and I have to spend all weekend working and working on a lab report, which I am really not looking forward to. I have a feeling it’s going to be a struggle to get through the report.

I’m just rambling so I don’t have to study. Time to go be productive.

  1. I hope your test goes well.

    I can only imagine. Tim and I don’t have a ton of stuff minus my clothes. I got rid of so much junk that I just never wanted to deal with again and all his stuff is car related since that is all he does…cars and work LOL.

  2. You should definitely enjoy sleeping in! Sometimes we just need that extra sleep. December will be here before you know it and then you can spend some time nesting 🙂
