When I was not yet going out with now Hubby, we did not talk much. However, there were some incidents here and there leading up to our courtship that we do remember fondly. Now that we are married, I ask him to tell me those stories over and over again.
One of them involves an emoji. We were going over to a family’s house for lunch, and I happened to be grabbing potato salad for the event. I was running late. A certain boy was busy barbecuing in the backyard and texted me to say something like “Take your time. We’ll save food for you =)”. I remember getting that text while I was on the way to the store with someone I can’t remember who, and smiling to myself. “How nice!” I thought. But I also had another thought cross my mind, “He used a smiley face. That’s interesting… he’s never done that before. I wonder if he likes me? But he could be just a nice person. Hm. Whatever!” When I got to the house, I went to say hi to the boys barbecuing. Hubby remembers that hello very clearly. I guess it was the first time I actually came to say hi to him? So there you have it. The moral of the story is, be careful about sending emojis, guys. Unless of course if that’s what you’re going for, then send away!
Summer is almost here, and the teachers and students are all counting the days. I myself have some projects I want to work on, including finishing Marie Kondo’s book about tidying up and cleaning out the mess that is my closet. I’ve been looking into different options for my old clothes, from donating to selling both locally and online. Sometimes I get lost in the research and information out there. It is the same for cooking. There are just so many recipes to try, and not enough time in life to get through all of them! I don’t know if it’s because I’m 27 now, but time seems awfully short. The amount of things I could possibly learn is endless, never mind the things I could do. I also have a little bit of an itch to bake. My KitchenAid mixer is sitting somewhere in our kitchen all by itself. It might just be time to bring it out, now that we’ve finally adjusted the height! But really, where are my priorities? Often I feel I am spread thin in my head. So I curl up into a ball and watch the latest YouTube videos or check on my Neko Atsume cats. Let me just close my eyes, and sleep.
