It's a good thing he buys me shoes.

Skirt: Anthro; Cardigan & shoes: Nords

those are the shoes!

Story #1: 
I have a nightly ritual before I go to bed. It's normal. I just go downstairs and I check all the locks. Sometimes I open the garage door to make sure the actual garage door is closed. When I check our sliding door that goes to out backyard, I always turn on the porch light really quick. I hope that if there is a robber or a rapist out there, I will catch him mid-breaking-in-plans, and he will run away scared. Last night though, when I turned on the light, the screen door was completely OFF and stuck to the side. Obviously we haven't gone in the backyard since like....September?? So I woke McKay up to ask him about it. This is what happened-

Me: McKay
Me: McKay
Me: Mckaaaaaayyyyy
McKay: Whaaaaaatttt?!!
Me: Did you move the screen door?
McKay: Whatttt?
Me: The sliding screen door in the kitchen...did you move it?
McKay: Whatttt?
Me: I was making sure everything was locked and the screen door was off. 
McKay: (sitting up now) Whatttt?
McKay: No.
Me: Okay, well I am scared then because someone took it off!
McKay: Whatttt?
'           '
'           '
'           '
(he really did say what like 25 times.) 

Me: Can you just go check it please?
McKay: Ali, I took it off. I took it off because it kept coming know... (he means the track)

Story #2: Which is happening as I type this.

Tonight is McKay's monthly campout with the scouts. You know, the night that I check the locks like a jillion times and eat a whole pan of brownies by myself. Anyways- I usually don't say that McKay's leaving the day he's leaving because I am scared of internet weirdos coming here and stealing me and Jax...but for the sake of the story...
Okay, this is not a lie. I seriously had a daydream today that McKay surprised me and said he was not going camping, but that he was instead going to take me on a date. And then we started texting:

McKay: How bout I don't go camping tonight?
(44 minutes pass)
McKay: Or I will...
Me: Sorry babe! I went to the post office and had to charge my phone because it died! I wish you didn't have to go
McKay: What r u doing tonight?
Me: I don't know
McKay: How about go to a restaurant?
Me: Wait am i dreaming
McKay: Probably
Me: Ugh dangit
McKay: R u chillin with ur fam tonight?


then I didn't respond. 

I mean...seriously??!

*******Recent- almost-immidiately-after update: Bittersweet.

Sweet: He came home from work and the camping trip got cancelledddddd! Yay! 

Bitter: We are poor so we can't go to a restaurant. Probably because of the shoes.

    I had the dream the other night that i went to prom (yup at my current age) with ZACK HANSON...basically i woke up fan-girling before realizing it was all fake...womp womp...
    I check my locks nightly, sometimes multiple times a night...i'll even wake up in the middle of the night sometimes and check them! Yay for being neurotic!
