Here’s all the stuff that we posted this week.

Our Lives This Week

In Asti’s Life…

Dave and Asti

We’re Sexy And We Know It

Did I mention Dave and I saw Mockingjay Pt. 1 last week?  Yeah, it was alright. It met my expectations, but I didn’t really have high expectations to begin with, so it’s all good. I actually have a post about movie adaptations going live later this week, so make sure to stop by and check it out ;)

On Sunday, I also watched Dave play football (soccer) as I usually do each weekend, and he scored! Woohoo! Dave is one of those guys who is always so hard on himself and sort of lets his own head games get in the way of the actual game, so usually his games consist of him getting frustrated with himself or getting sick and being subbed off. But not this time! I was so happy for him. <3

Apart from that, I had two sick days this week and a roller coaster of emotions. There’s something definitely wrong with my mind right now, but I’m just trying to ride it out in hopes that it’ll get back to where it needs to be soon. It’s absolutely exhausting when this kind of thing happens though. One minute I am incredibly giggly and happy, and the next I feel numb and void of emotion. It’s just so extreme. It makes me want to sleep forever.

Football Fog

Beautiful weather to watch football…

Oh, and Orion has asked me to stay on for a bit longer. They requested I stay until January, but as that is my last month in the country I said I could only stay on until Christmas. So I have two more weeks of work to go (which means two more weeks of not responding to comments and being pretty fail as a blogger, sorry). But hey, it’s nice they like me enough to keep me around.

Hope you all had a lovely week. x

In Kelley’s Life…

Ahem. Hello, friends. Um, my life is just… kind of… crazy right now. It’s ridiculous. It’s so crazy that I haven’t even gotten to enjoy feeding all of the adorable kitties that loiter by my house when I get home from work. My husband has found a job that is likely perfect for him, and it’s an amazing opportunity, which makes me both excited for him and proud of him! The only thing I dislike about this job is that it’s basically going to uproot us and it will be a major change for our lives. There are a lot of things still up in the air, a lot of unknowns and uncertainties (which drive a brain like mine just *crazy*), so we don’t have everything planned out yet. But. Yes. Deep breaths… lots of changes ahead. Don’t worry, I can blog from anywhere, and I don’t intend to stop!)

Aside from that, my week has been especially busy, and weird, and just… unsual? Don’t believe me? I’ll leave you with this:

  1. I didn’t have crazy expectations for Mockingjay either so it was alright for me as well, Asti. And I know what you mean about the crazy extremes of emotions in one week. That was essentially me. One moment I was floating on a high and the next I was rolling in the low of lows. Gah. I need some good sleep (3 days of 3 hours. Smooth Jess, smooth.) OF COURSE ORION WOULD LOVE YOU! Enjoy the last two weeks! Obviously you’re rocking their world.

    Congrats on your husband’s job! I know what you mean about unknowns. They scare me so much. I like to understand things, see where things are heading. I like a clear picture. The changes sound big but hopefully they work out for the better.

    The holiday season is coming up so we can all put our feet up soon! Sleep well, you two (unlike me) and keep healthy! <3 x

  2. I loved the link of Shakespeare phrases, especially “Cruel to be Kind,” which amuses me because that one’s also a song that Letters to Cleo did for 10 Things I Hate About You… which is of course based on a Shakespeare play. My mind likes finding little connections like that.

    Sounds like things are a bit crazy for both of you right now. Here’s hoping it all gets sorted, and Asti, that you’re able to enjoy your time in London before you come back to the States (definitely the right call not working right up until the end).

  3. @ Asti I am kinda behind on watching the Hunger Games movies, I’ve only seen the first movie so far, although I plan on eventually watchign the other ones as well. I hope you’re feeling beter soon Asti! Emotional rollercoasters are no fun :(. It’s a good sign Orion wanted to keep you around!

    @Kelley, I am sad to hear your life is a bit crazy right now, I hope things get sorted soon! I hate changes, especiall big ones. Maybe you get some more information soon, that might help.

    Thanks for linking to one of my posts! I always get happy when I see you linked to one of my posts :)

  4. Asti, I don’t wonder your mind is all over the place these days. It’s a difficult time for you and I can’t even imagine dealing with having to leave a country and life that you seemed to settle so well into :( I’m thinking of you.
    Kelley, that’s exciting and SCARY! But congrats to your husband! You will figure it out together, one step at a time.

  5. Thanks a lot for linking up to me, guys! I hope you’re feeling better, Asti, and I’m so happy that your bosses want you! I hope things work out for you.

    As for Kelley, I hope life stops being so crazy for you soon! I also hope that the whole job matter gets settled soon, and if you do move, I hope it all be smooth sailing! :D
