Confessions of a Bored Housewife

While my husband is gone, I decided to tap into my inner Superwoman persona — I assembled a bookcase, a shoe rack, a metal bath tier rack that I decided to put in the sun room and use for my plants… and then I got to the curio.

One of my father-in-law’s doctor colleagues bought us a curio cabinet from our wedding registry. It’s very lovely (and solid wood). Danny didn’t assemble it before he left for Texas, but it was starting to nag me just leaning up against the wall, still in its humongous box, so I decided to assemble it. Over three hours later, I gave up and decided to wait for my husband to come home and fix it instead. I did get most of it done, but the doors require two people to help assemble; I also put two of the shelves in the wrong way, wasn’t able to tighten some of the screws (and some of the screws went in crooked instead of straight, and the edge of the glass chipped a bit on one of the sides — it’s not noticeable, but I noticed it because I assembled it, but it’s so superficial that I’m not even going to contact the manufacturer for a replacement part. At around 11:30p.m. I gave up and put the doors in the closet so they’ll be out of the way and safe from damage.

My dining set will arrive on Monday, and we got a washer and dryer (hooray!); my new vacuum also shipped. Now we just need a living room set… and something for the sunroom, which I decided to make into my “sewing room” (mostly for my crafts and crocheting). I think my husband is so wonderful to basically let me have all the say in the home space, he’s definitely very accommodating.

I am upset that we forgot my kitchen utensils in one of my drawers while we were packing, and they were accidentally left behind. Very upsetting since they aren’t even a year old yet and because I can’t cook without them! I hate having to buy a new set especially since that one was over $50.

We got mostly money from our guests at our wedding, but some bought us things from our registry. (I am still waiting for my flatware to ship, those will be my fancy flatware… it’ll go with my fancy plates that I’ll use only during the holidays, ha!) Since I don’t have any of my cooking utensils, we have been eating out every day (or eating Cup O’Noodles… it’s like college all over again), so I have not been grocery shopping, and am a bit depress waiting for the furniture because of all the empty space.

My anxiety went through the roof on Saturday and I spent most of the day crying. I was very emotional and thought perhaps I was ovulating. My baby app predicted this week to be my fertile week, so we shall see in two weeks whether or not the stork is bringing us a baby!

I told Danny I wanted to go home (New York City) for the summer, and he said okay. I have the best husband in the world. Pinch me, I’m dreaming — I can’t believe it!

Happy First Father’s Day ♡

My husband had his first Father’s Day today… I spent all day yesterday crying and having a meltdown… and then went on some crazy shopping spree buying mostly junk to calm myself down.

I forgot it was Father’s Day today, and rolled out of bed at about 10a.m., and by the time I showered and crawled back to bed, it was almost 11 — my daughter was disappointed that she wasn’t able to use her Father’s Day McDonald’s breakfast coupon. (I only remembered after seeing the presents I bought last month on the kitchen counter.)

I quietly went into my daughter’s room and shut the door and told her today was Father’s Day, but it was too late for her to use her coupon to take daddy to breakfast. Since we had such a crazy busy few weeks (our wedding, honeymoon, relocating… now waiting for the rest of Danny’s furniture and buying new furniture) — I’m disappointed that my husband’s first Father’s Day wasn’t better for him. (He spent most of it doing homework for his MBA — I spent most of it sleeping.)

We didn’t even get him a card, and I was too lazy to make him a card (I’m quite a card-making expert, if I do say so myself), so I had my daughter draw him a Father’s Day picture on her art easel (which she calls her “big X” because the legs on the easel look like a big X to her). Thankfully I like to do things ASAP, so I had at least gotten him presents in May for the occassion.

He has to go back to Texas to move out of his apartment, so we are dropping him off at the airport tomorrow. His furniture will arrive by the end of the week, and he bought me the dining set I wanted today; we looked at living room sets also, and once we buy a living room set we’ll be complete. (We still need a washer and dryer too… it’s been so crazy, it’s hard to believe it’s only been three days at our new home.)

A most happiest first Father’s Day to my wonderful husband. We love him so much. He goes broke spending all his money on us, and we are spoiled rotten by him. He does everything he can to make us happy. We are so grateful to God for such an amazing man. ♡
