{SQT} Reintroductions, Being Useless, and some GIFs

Everyone take a moment to look over there ----> 

That's me. 
Yep, I know. Sorry about the blur. 

So, before my darling Hunky Husband left for his vacation to Colorado (withOUT me... see #3), I was reading an article from Dwija... and then felt so inclined to read it aloud to him as he innocently sat watching Chuck. 

"She's funny," was his first response... to which I was all like, WELL DUH.
And then he said it. The thing that changed this blog forever. 
"Well, you can use our names, and a picture with most of your face could be okay." You!Can!Use!Our!Names!

I had to check and make sure it wasn't just the 'you're-interrupting-my-show-leave-me-alone' talking. It wasn't, apparently. We talked about it at length (ie, talked about it incessantly until he said it was time for bed; and then while he took a shower, I stood outside blabbing at him; and then blabbed at him while he brushed his teeth, too) and we're doing this thing. 

I'm Adrie. He's Zeke. No more ridiculous screen names! Huzzah! 

Although, I do call him Hunky Husband every once in awhile in real life, so I'm gonna just keep doing that sometimes. 

 Can we talk about how much time I have that I'm clicking through all the archives of the bloggers I love? (Or maybe it's just because folding laundry is dumb and I hate it.)

Zeke went on a trip to Colorado, to visit his brother and go snowmobiling and snowboarding and all that. He left last night, and I got a text at 2:50 am that said, "I'm going to bed now. Have a good night." 
Which I think means that they made it to Colorado, and that he'll sleep until about noon. 

Apparently, I'm completely useless without Zeke. 
I have to be at our morning meeting at work at 8:30 every morning. This morning, I woke up in a panic at 8:33. Because (oh duh) my Hunky Husband has the good morning alarm on his iPod touch, which he took to Colorado and I didn't think to set an alarm myself. 
I made it to work at 8:40. And lets be honest, my co-workers will have to suffer through the squirrel on my head looking at 'em all day, cuz I didn't have time to brush my hair. 
 The reason Zeke's going withOUT me to Colorado--- 

Is cuz I'm going on a women's retreat this weekend! 

I'm very excited. I'm leaving in.... five hours. FIVE HOURS?

I need to pack. So far, I have Combos and Pretzel thins in my bag. And that is all. Oh man.

I have a stack of registrations on my desk right now (yeah, the ones I'm avoiding... what of it?). 

In part, I wanna go like this... 

... just for the joy of it, 

but really? Lots of registrations is such a good thing! And it means that summer is coming!

 Does anyone want to tell the weather that summer is coming? 

NEGATIVE FOUR. As the "high temp." 

I put "high temp" in quoties, because anything below zero cannot really be considered a high.

Come on summertime! 

See the rest of the Quick Takes over at Conversion Diary!


  1. I SO agree - come on, summertime! We're supposed to get 3 to 8 inches of snow this weekend in the midwest. Really???? I'm so done with winter.

    Nice to finally know your names. Have fun at your retreat.

    1. Thanks! On one hand, I'm ready for nice weather... but spring makes me stress because there's so much to get done before summer! Ah!

  2. Nice to meet you Adrie!!! I had the same dilemma about using my real name but it does make it feel a little more like your making "real" blog friends when its a real name!! Have a great retreat... pray for me if you think of it.

    1. I like the fact that I have a name again! Haha! Nice to meet you, too, Amy!

  3. Yes, I would like someone to tell the weather that it's practical spring. Instead of telling us that we're supposed to get a few more inches of snow today.
    Nice to finally meet ya!

    1. Last year, we had more snow in April than in January... I'm hoping the weather doesn't get confused on its seasons again. I'm tired of the cold!
