I am more stubborn than my cheap bathroom fixtures

I just spent a half an hour struggling to put up a new shower curtain I just bought.
I also bought a liner, but then it occurred to me the only one who sees me in my shower is Ari. I bought these very nice looking metal hooks to go with it, and tried several times to put them on a cheap hollowed out aluminum shower curtain rod. *sigh* Fortunately, I had some of the cheap plastic hooks from Target so I used those. I managed to break the end off the curtain rod, so it took me a while to get the curtain rod to stay without collapsing again. Then I got the curtain up. My arms ache, but I won't spray water all over the floor tomorrow. It does look nice, even with plastic hooks. I can't wait to have my own house so I can decorate it the way I want. *grin*
Jason and I joined a gym on Thursday. It's really nice. IT HAS A POOL. Words cannot express how excited I am about this. I'm going swimming tomorrow after work.
I have Thanksgiving at Jason's cousin's house on Thursday. Now that Jason has told me what his parents' issue with me is (and honestly, it's even more ridiculous than I ever could have imagined) I think it's going to be even weirder than before.
But I'm going...because when you love someone, you support them. Even if it means putting up with their wack-job family. *snicker* And I have dinner with my family the next day to balance it out.

So Ari and I are going over to Jason's today and tomorrow. We have this thing where we spend holidays together at his place. It's fun. We invited my parents to come for dinner on Monday since they are coming back from visiting my Grammy in New Jersey. And my sister and brother-in-law are coming too. It should be fun. So I started packing some toys for Ari in a paper bag, which he watched me do. He decided that he HAD to have his little mouse on a string toy, so he got up on the chair, and leaned over the bag and fished it out. Now he's chasing it across the living room. Heee.
I'm still doing well, I just finished up a big paper assignment so I'm about 2/3rds done with my classwork for this semester. I think it's pretty good. Work is okay. I'm looking forward to our cruise in February. It should be awesome. Oh, and my hockey team sucks donkey's butt. I don't know what it is, but the natives (fans) are getting restless. *sigh* The owner in response posted the definition of Mass Hysteria on his blog. As you can imagine, it went over really well. Sheesh.
Uh oh, Ari's trying to eat some thread that fell from my dresser, so I'd better go. He's such a funny little guy.
