Oh Monday.... How I Loathe You...

Well this weekend was very uneventful. It rained and rained and rained. Milo and I didn't get our usual Saturday and Sunday morning walks in, so he was pissed. He was also pissed because Mama didn't have time this morning to put his bed back together after putting it in the wash last night. So he's 'enjoying' a makeshift bed as we speak.

I cleaned the house (well most of it) and we're almost ready for the Mr. and Charlie to come home. We, meaning me, have a lot of laundry to fold and put away, sheets to wash and change on the bed (lil pug sleeps with me in Mr.'s absence), and I have to take everything out of the office that I've stowed away in his 'man space'.
*Sorry ladies, he's taken! My hubby on our flight to the DR. He hates getting his picture taken, can you tell...

Mr. Jetplane and Charlie will be home on Wednesday! As in the day 2 days away. Mr. Jetplane knows I grocery shop on Sundays so he called me to ask if I could buy a couple of things that he likes - his cereal, lunch meat, and soy milk. Yes, Mr. Jetplane drinks soy milk. But since I've never bought it for him before, he provided me with a detailed explanation of the type he wanted. It had to be plain, it had to be 1/2 the fat of regular soy milk, and yada yada yada.

Funny story, Mr. Jetplane loved milk and all milk products for his whole life. He drank a gallon a milk a week and ate cereal every morning. He adored cheese and ice cream. Well, when Mr. Jetplane began flight school and more importantly flying with his g-suit on, he got sick ALOT. He threw up ALOT. Well, someone asked him what he was eating and drinking. One of the guys, ask him if he thought he could potentially be lactose intolerant. Surely not, this boy eats milk products all day everyday and never had an issue until now. So Mr. Jetplane started drinking soy milk and taking some medicine before he eats milk products, and what do you know... he's all better. Very strange..

Sorry for the long story about Mr. Jetplane's lactose intolerance... he'd kill me...

Total side note... does anyone out there watch Big Love? Umm.... hello, is it not totally awesome this year? Next week is the season finale, thoughts on what's going to happen? One of my co-workers told me that the rumor was 2 major characters die this season, 1 already has so who's next? My co-worker thinks its going to be Nikki...

I watch Big Love religiously. Josh is mad he isn't able to watch this season. I loathe Nikki--don't know what it is about her, i just can't stand her...

My baby brother developed a lactose intolerance when he was like 13. Before then, he hadn't had any problems at all. Now if he so much as eats a scoop of ice cream he is barfing for days. So strange!!! Glad MR. J found the cure though. Even though it involves you hunting down the precise brand of soy milk he likes, haha!

Big love is the best show! We are a couple seasons behind though because we wait for it on dvd. We get really good coupons online for soy milk, and it can usually be cheaper than milk!

Big Love is one of my favorites!! I cannot believe that the season is almost over...it goes by too quickly.

Nikki is crazy; I never understood how Bill could love, or even like her. I hadn't heard that rumor...interesting!

Mandy said...

Glad you got your house put back together before he comes home.

Morning Jetette,
2 more days! Big Love is my favorite show! I just feel it building to something big with Nikki, but don't you think someone would have leaked it by now. Thank goodness is was a great season, you know they almost didn't get renewed this past year. I so want to search the web for a spoiler, but then again it would ruin it. Can't believe it's the end of the season either. We will miss you when you are love festing!

Big Love rocks. Especially this season. Last season, I was a fare weather fan. Not so much this season. I'm addicted. Can't believe we're already at the Season Finale. Yuck.

2 days= so soon!! Yippee for the Jet Planes!!

Chic Runner said...

Hooray for the reunion! :) I can't believe that it's so close and that is too funny about him being lactose intolerant. Glad he found a cure for flying though.

Casey said...

I didn't figure out I was lactose intolerant until college. They say you can develop it (or lose it) as you get older. Mine came after mono. Luckily, they have lots of soy stuff. Too bad almost everything has milk in it. Ugh.

And I LOVE big love! Can't wait until this season is out on Netflix. It's already in my queue!

I looove me some Big Love. I don't watch much TV but a recent new fan of Lost as well.

I love big love and was also upset that October Road got cancelled. There have been so many shows to get cancelled that I am upset about. I was also sad to see Men in Trees and windfall get cancelled. There are way to many to name. I am glad I am not the only tv addict around. ;)
