Fitting it all in

Life has been busy. This time of year always seems to be. Lots going on which is great, but I’m trying not to over do it either. 

I worked my side job last weekend. Which it had been raining on off for like 2 weeks. That’s getting old! Will got back from his work trip & we had a great dinner Sunday night (date #2). It was a really nice way to wrap up the weekend.

Monday I played cornhole, but Tuesday it got rained out. Impromptu dinner with friends which I invited Will also. I figured he’s seen me dressed up nice twice so this was casual jeans stuffing down wings. 🤣 He wasn’t fazed at all which was nice to see. I am enjoying hanging out & slowly getting to know him. He went out of town again for a few days & now his mom is here visiting until next week. I told him if he needs a break he knows how to find me. 😉

I had therapy last week. I do enjoy meeting with her. I know I’ve made a lot of improvements since last summer, but sometimes all I see is that hot mess still. She keeps it in perspective & we talk out things. Between the gym & a bday party I had a FULL week! Definitely going low key this weekend. 

Last night had a concert with the girls which was a blast!! Then we headed next door to the casino for a bit. I don’t play but it’s fun to hang & watch. Today I’ve been running errands which FL summer had kicked in. It’s hot! I really wish I could get some beach time. Perhaps tomorrow? I sent my dad his Father’s Day stuff this week so I’ll give him a call.

I leave next Monday for Canada for 2 weeks so I’ve been getting things organized for that. I’m trying not to leave it til the last minute to get ready, but you know in some way it always ends up that way. Even work I’ve been trying to get ready so it’s not a complete mess this week or when I return.

Tonight is a life celebration for a friend’s family member. But it’s at a bar & then the beach for sunset. Not sure what to expect. Maybe the bar is a good idea?

Not the plan this weekend

Well…Friday night kickball got a little rough. Like my right ankle & 1st base didn’t agree so there was a “pop snap” noise & I saw it bend in a not good way. You know it’s not good when your team is huddled around you while you lay in the dirt & they are whispering on the swelling bulge (hello I can hear you it’s not my ears that were hurt!). So I got carried to the bench & my season ended a little early. I didn’t walk on it, kept it elevated, iced & wrapped. The next morning it wasn’t looking that great–we figured it was a sprain & the outter ligaments, but the bulge was making me a tad wary. So my FL family picked me up & off to urgent care we went for an X-ray. Luckily everything came back clear & it is just a sprain so I need to keep continuing what I’m doing. Which is nothing. BORING 😐

By Saturday night I couldn’t take it anymore & my friend Zac picked me up for church. I really didn’t want to miss the new series they were starting called Hot Mess (aren’t we all?? 😄) & I needed a field trip. It was a good service & on the way home we went for ice cream. It was really nice to hang out & catch up cause it’s been awhile.

Today I did nothing. Watched tv. Caught up on This Is Us & most of Nashville. My ankle didn’t feel so great in the morning but by late afternoon it was feeling better. I stood on it to make dinner & then took a light easy walk around the neighborhood after I ate. Iced when I got home & now all set for bed. It’s looking pretty today (yeah I still have a cankle happening)


I was supposed to have dinner with Anthony (the guy I had met for drinks last week) tonight, but I cancelled. Not being able to drive and it hurting I was afraid I wouldn’t be good company. I’d rather have a good date to start than just go cause I do like him & don’t want a bad outing. We texted a little today & he was cool. We’re going to reschedule for this week. 

I think I’ll be ok to drive to work tomorrow & I’ll wear sneakers with it padded up for support. Good times!! As long as I’m better for Costa Rica in a few weeks I’m happy!
