This morning, we went to the gym. Traffic was a nightmare due to the Memorial Day parade that was happening in Sewickley. Drew had serious road rage. I was a little annoyed. We finally got to the gym, and I hopped on to a treadmill. Drew texted me while I was on the treadmill, and asked if I wanted to play some basketball? I said, “Sure!” It has been awhile since we played and there was no one in the court.
After we shot some hoops, he went into the weight room, and then I went on the elliptical, and did my 30 mins. After that, I did some machines and BSed with Claylene. I feel like I never get anything done when she is there. We just BS, while I do reps. It was fun. Erin was there. She complimented my weight loss. She said, she can tell in my face that I lost weight. I was glad it is noticeable to other people.
After we finished at the gym, we stopped and grabbed 2 twelve packs, and then we went to the grocery store and picked up ketchup, lemon cake mix, frosting, chips, and salsa. We were finally going to have a cookout to ourselves. When we got home, I showered and put on a cute dress which I ruined while I was baking the cake, so there goes that. I went up to change, and then sat outside for a bit, while Drew grilled. We listened to some classic rock radio, and we had so much fun. I love when he cooks out. He enjoys it, and it makes me happy. After we ate dinner, we got ready to watch Black Sails, so far a lot of the key characters are dying since it is the final season of the show. I was not looking forward to work the next day.
This morning, when we woke up, we felt pretty useless from all the food and beer we consumed the night before. I was laying on the couch with Drew, watching television when he got the text from Dan saying the car is done for the most part, and it should be ready by 1pm. Then Leanne texted me asking me if we were coming to the cookout. I really didn’t want to go and neither did Drew. I just wanted to pick up his car and be on our way. Drew wanted to cookout on his grill, and we wanted to be alone at some point during the weekend.
Well we ended up going to the cookout, and Maci was sick. We didn’t bring anything. We offered, but we didn’t need to, so we didn’t. Dan put the finishing touches on the car, and Drew pulled it out of the garage, finally! We helped them set up the tables, chairs, and tent for the cookout.
At one point Dan started cooking, but then he had to run out and get plates and forks. Everything was behind because he didn’t finish the car on time, and things were rushed. Maci was sick. Leanne was sitting around bullshitting with Gretchen, Shawn’s girlfriend. I was so annoyed. After we ate, we hung out around the table and then they started talking about Bumper’s wedding. George said, “if it even happens. He proposes to every girl he sleeps with.” They all looked at me. I made the motion with my hands like cut it out, stop. It is so awkward when they bring him up, and the fact that I was his girlfriend at one point makes me feel like I am forever marked. It’s fucking awkward for Drew too I am sure. I can’t stand them sometimes. I just put up with the bullshit because I am friends with Leanne.
After the conversation, switched gears we got up to leave. Drew and I had enough of the O’Grodnik House. We needed to go grocery shopping and we wanted to get back, relax, and finish watching Black Sails. I will miss this show. It was full of swashbuckling pirates, Long John Silver, trade deals, and relationships. We said our goodbyes, which always takes a few minutes. Then we were on our way back to Moon. We stopped at the grocery store and did some shopping, then went home and relaxed for the rest of the night.
