So I got home from work yesterday to find that our previously barren livingroom had been furnished with a brand new coffee table, an end table, and a chair. Our porch now contained two new retro outdoor chairs, and my room a new table as well. Melchor went to the thrift store and cleaned up while I was at work. When I called him on my way home and asked him what he had done all day he said nothing, just kinda laid around. He was hiding under the covers in my bed like a little kid who knew they had been bad. I was just so excited. He said that he went over there and there was a half price sale going on for father's day. He said that there was also a dresser there and some other stuff he wanted to get but hadn't yet. So he and Nicole and I all piled into the SAAB and went. We came home with a new entertainment center (E-U-Nit!) that only cost us $15 AND a friggin couch that JUST happened to be the exact same style as the chair he had just got from there, and it was also $15!! The SAAB can fit more in it than one would think once all the seats are put down. We stuffed this big ass E-U-Nit in there first, and it started to POUR. We got home, unloaded it, and Nicole and I carried it up two flights of stairs while Melchor went back to the thrift store for the couch. Yes, he fit a couch in his car, ppl. It's one of those old ones that is made out of solid wood but has removable cushions. So Melchor came back, and HIMSELF carried the couch all the way up the stairs! So now, our livingroom is almost complete. We just need to get the bigger TV from Nicole's parents when we go for the 4th of July and some more decoration type stuff to put on the mantle and E-U-Nit. Our old coffee table which Sarah had the joy of experiencing is now our diningroom table which we are doing a japanese style with, having really soft cushions ont the floor to sit on and having everything be low to the ground. The Cushions are yet to be purchased, but our diningroom now has a definate star/moon yellow and blue theme which comes from our Van Goh "Starry Night" print that we have hanging on the wall. We got some KICKASS dishes from Big Lots today- for a total of $8. They are mix and match blue and yellow stripes. ( Pictures?Collapse )
I really don't like to brag specifically about my boyfriend because I am not that kind of person, HOWEVER. I would like it to be known that Melchor is the wonderfullest. I know that sometimes we have our ups and downs- just like any couple would... but he is always good to me. He BOUGHT ME FURNITURE and CARRIED IT UP 2 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS! He GAVE me his brand new 5-CD programmable Panasonic stereo for my room because he felt sad that I could only play music on my laptop. He drives here every weekend to see me, and he wants me to be the best person possible. He even bought me the book, "Meditation for Busy Prople" it is so cute. I feel like he wants me to succeed more than anyone else I have ever met, and that just in turn makes me push him further. He is now working TWO Jobs on top of going to school. He got up this morning from here at 3:30am, drove to Durham to deliver bread, did that till 10am, then went home and took a catnap and went over to the new Torrero's that opened up in Carrboro that he's been working at, and he will probably not get home till after eleven. I do not know how he does it. And then he takes off tues. and thurs. nights to go to school. I feel like I am being selfish when I ask him to take a day off once a week to be with me. I know that HE needs it as much as I need him- and that it will benefit both of us for him to be here sometimes during the week- esp. now that Rick finally came back from the Ukraine. Melchor needs a place where he knows he can always come and find peace- and that place is here. I love him, and cannot imagine ever being without him for the rest of my life.
Today was day 1 of Ham's training. I volunteeredto answer the 1st question of the day- and I got it right so I got $20! It was CRAZY having to learn the new computer sustem, probably just because I am so used to the Red Lobster one, and I kept looking for things in all the wrong places. We got to test out all the appetizer and salad items and MAN were they good! and we were all SO full after! We also got our key to the test that's going to be given tomorrow- and it's going to be HARD as crap! Nicole and I have to do some serious studying tonight! I have work at Red Lobster at noon tomorrow and then we are going to go for the night training session at 5:30. I REALLY need some friggin money!
