My boring ass weekend.

with one comment

Man.

Friday was pretty awesome. I fell and skinned my knee while holding a cup of coffee. The coffee survived, the knee was skinned and is still bruised. I went to a WW meeting and lost a pound. Later Kevin bought me an blended latte and I dropped it twice, mainly due to the fact that the chick made a mess of it and put another cup on the outside of it to make it less messy. The second cup didn’t like being squeezed or something. We did some other crap that seems to have slipped my mind. It involved diner and salads. Fat people love salads, they’re delicious. They are, they’re yummy and Ralphie May said so. I had to go to bed pretty early so I could get up pretty early on Saturday to be at work by 5. But, knowing myself all to well I took to much time getting ready for bed aka fucking about in the bathroom and bedroom. I got to bed by 10:30p and couldn’t get to sleep because I had aneixty about getting up at 4:15. 3 hours of sleep isn’t enough for me anymore.

Saturday was pretty uneventful. I got up really early, like 4:15 after remembering looking at the clock a lot and being awake when my alarm didn’t go off. Remember kids, setting the alarm isn’t enough, you have to turn the fucker on as well. I had the beginnings of a cold or some awesome but super early allergies. I worked an awesome 8 hours. Kevin went to Bremerton. I went to the chiropractor before he closed at 3p. After coming home, Abigail and I took a nap. I ate a feast of cheese filled pastas, broccoli with olive oil and salt and pepper and red pepper flakes, and a huge ass salad. It wasn’t that exciting. I drank a glass of wine. Took a bath in Epsom salts. Called it good and went to bed. I slept like crap because Kevin wasn’t home.

So far today was entertaining. I worked pretty damn early, though not as early as yesterday. I was trying to be all awesome and perch on the edge of a milk crate that wasn’t as full and it probably should have been for the task I was trying to do… and the crate tipped forward and I managed to catch my thigh on the tower of crates next to it. You should see my fucking bruise, it is so hot… as in putting off a lot of heat. I’d take a picture but I’m not that flexible and my legs look like sausages and you might be blinded. I then realized that I’m closer to being 40 than I am to being 15?!? I de-pooped the backyard. I washed some dishes. I took a long shower, did all the necessary hygiene bits. I talked to Kevin, he was eating at this dad’s house. I ate a feast of broccoli with olive oil and salt and pepper, a salad, and rice noodle soup. And then I posted this blog. After this I’ll have a glass of wine and dry my hair. Be then, Kevin might be now.

Wow, I’m kind of boring.

tl;dr? Bold stuff is more important but, not that important stuff.

Remember kids…

You are never to old to trip in your driveway and skin you knee.

Ouch.

Monday, Monday.

Last week started out so awful!

I’m so glad I’m starting a fresh week. Yes, I’m starting my week on Monday.

We’re starting fresh by sticking to our diet. We’re starting fresh by not focusing on pain, mainly because it has decreased. We’re starting fresh by going to a wine tasting?

Happy Monday.

The joys of love and my relationship.

with one comment

I love you so much.

Sometimes it hurts, but not in a bad creepy way.

Sometimes I wish we were married.

Other times I’m glad we aren’t.

And yes, sometimes I get so angry that you don’t help me as much with household chores as much as I’d like that I’d take all of my Fiestaware and throw it into a massive heap and say “clean that shit up now, douche!” and run out the door and blow my share of the rent on shoes, an amazing dye job, and new Coach purse.

I love you, but some times you drive me nuts… just as much as I drive you nuts.

this post was brought to you by a full bottle of wine.

This has been a really long week, as I predicted it would be.

Today was one of those days.

One would have thought that after getting a massage and a good crack yesterday would made it so I could conquer the world today. Apparently I could for all of 6 hours. The last 2 hours at work were fought through. I also felt pretty klutzy all day! I broke a bottle of wine within the first hour I was at work. I ran into all sorts of things. I think the klutziness/brain fog is a result of the car accident and my body being so out of whack.

After working for 8 hours, doing grocery shopping, going to the mall only to realize they changed their hours and were closing up shop as I got there, head to Target and only found Fiber One bars and Weight Watchers candy to buy, and going to Fred Meyer to buy deodorant and shave gel but not razors because they were to expensive…. I am beat. Oh, and I had a crappy hair day.

And all I really want to do is crawl into bed and listen to a podcast or two. But, this morning I accidentally removed them all, all 158 of them.

I win at sucking today.

This is sometimes called getting old.

I’m finding this to be true in a lot of aspects of life. Getting older. Losing weight. Dealing with money. The way I react to people. The way I act in my relationships.

Happy Monday.

My mom and I were on the way to the St. Patrick’s Day Dash and got rear ended. Rear ended while stopped at stop light. In line with tons of other cars, stop and going for the past 15 minutes.

Thank you for paying attention, Mr. SUV driver. Just because the light is green doesn’t mean take your foot of the break and run into the car in front of you.

My neck and lumbar region ache a bit. I’m going to soak in Epsom salts when I’m done with this.  I made a call to my chiropractor. I’d like to see if  he can adjust me sometime before Tuesday, he isn’t in his office until then. Kevin has his personal number and said I could try that as well, but I understand its his day off.

This is the second 5k type thing we have missed. We missed the Jingle Bell 5k due to snow/icy stuff and it being 22°.

Random 3 day-ish weekend for me!

leave a comment »

Who doesn’t love a 3 day weekend? Especially when it falls on an actual weekend?

But on Thursday I was asked if I could work on Friday. Our beer guy is out with bronchitis. Um yeah, um wait… um, no! Um wait, I could but only from 6p-10p. (I was hoping that they’d say no due to the fact it was so late.) I sent my boss an email saying I would be able to work those hours due to having prior commitments during the day at 10:30a and at 4p.

Low and behold, I got a voice mail  saying it would be really awesome if I could work that shift and would I please call her back to verify ASAP. Blah. I get to do beer and wine stuff. I get to make sure it all looks full and pretty. Best of all, its Friday night and I can bullshit with a bunch of people about booze.

I still have Saturday and Sunday off. Saturday is full of nothing, maybe a nap or 2? Sunday, my mom and I are doing the St. Patrick’s Day Dash and I’m going to a private wine tasting at a fellow employee’s house. I don’t have to work on Monday until 3p. All in all, it should be a super weekend.
