weekend wind down

I had a really nice weekend of nothing. Just relaxing, refreshing, renewing myself.

Doggy sitting was great! Saturday morning snuggles in bed & then I went to the beach for the afternoon. Got some great sun & sand time. Took about a 2 mile walk along the shore which was nice.

Saturday night I went out with my friend Tiffany since we’ve both been super busy & haven’t seen each other. Tried this adorable little German restaurant (thanks Groupon!) that was really good & authentic. I can’t wait to go again!

Sunday was another lazy morning with the puppies before I drove by my house since it’s been awhile to check things out. It looks ok–not sure about the new lawn company that took over so I’ll need to do a few more visits to check their work. Noticed the palm trees looked long so I called my tree guy to get them trimmed. The neighborhood as a whole seems to be on the upswing from when I started looking in there 3.5 years ago for houses. People have made exterior improvements, houses have been cleaned up, the foreclosures seem less. Yay!! I then did some shopping (need dresses for the upcoming wedding trip & then a bachelorette weekend) which was successful! Headed back to the house to let the puppies play outside before the storm hit. Which once it did we climbed in bed & watched TV/slept. Very uneventful day which is good for me.

I didn’t hear from J all weekend after we had drinks after kickball Friday. He had plans with friends coming from out of town. At first I was ok. Then I got bugged. Then I was all right. Then I started worrying. And about what I have no idea?!?!?! God I hate this crappy fear of I don’t know what…him disappearing? Leaving? I never used to feel this way. I think about everything I said & if I was ok? Or how he reacted. I sent him a text later Sunday & he responded a bit later that he just got home. I gave him a bit to settle & then called him. We chatted a bit which was nice. And nothing was wrong. He was fine. I was just having irrational stupid over thinking freak out. I would like to thank the previous douchebag for that! Argh…I really am trying to work on this issue with myself. I don’t want to hold other’s actions against him cause he’s done nothing wrong or even remotely close to it. He’s very sweet, calls me when he says he will & really likes me so I don’t want to blow it. I am glad to have therapy this week so we can discuss it.

Hump day ho hums

Blah the rain. Yes we needed it. Yay we are ok longer a high fire risk. The grass is green & growing. But come on…since last Thursday night it’s been on/off & starting Monday pretty much all day rain. ☔️ So over it. I miss the sun. I miss my activities. I would like to not be wearing my raincoat all the time. 🙄

Monday started out with me driving to work & a low tire pressure light going on. On the tire I just replaced 6 weeks ago. Work was a bit of a shit show cause apparently people didn’t do things while I was gone which made meeting the deadlines that day insane. I left work & hauled ass to the car dealership so they could look at the tire. Turns out another nail (WTF??!!) and the computer needs to be adjusted cause it was the other side that was flat (not the side it was saying). Again wtf??? Thank goodness again for that extra tire warranty cause that’s another $400 I didn’t have to shell out when they ordered the tire. 🙏 I then headed to the gym where my face & jaw was starting to hurt so much I half assed it just get it done. I apologized to my awesome trainer…she knows when I’m not right & isn’t a jerk about it. I had taken a pain pill at work early, but I can’t drive on them so couldn’t take another. Got home, made dinner & went to bed! 👊

Tuesday more rain. More of the same work crap (still catching up). But changed my dinner plans when cornhole cancelled! My favorite local event is going on…restaurants offer fixed menus for a low price for 2 weeks. Usually these are upscale or places I never go so trying to get to a few new ones again this year. Except my frigging tooth pain is really putting a damper on things!! Nevertheless I was determined last night to eat & it was fabulous. Had a good time catching up with my gf & her bf. One of my favorite stores is having their semi annual sale so I stopped there & can you believe I found exactly what I have been looking for?? On sale??!! That never happens so it made for a much improved day!! And I got a cute new dress for peanuts at the thrift store on lunch break. Day improving. 👍

Today again it’s raining. Yeah shocker. 😂 I’m hitting the gym after work & then home. I need an early night to catch up. My tooth is still hurting & it’s been a week so I’m thinking there is something else wrong? I have a follow up dental appointment tomorrow.

Good news…William & I have continued to stay in touch. He’s back in Seattle, but coming home Sunday so we’re doing dinner that night. Date #2!! I’m trying not to be too excited or get ahead, but I am looking forward to seeing him & spending actual time together. It’s been almost a month we’ve been “talking” yet have only met that one time. Which is really weird for me (I’ve never done anything like this before) although I like it! How crazy is that? Things are moving slow which is good right now cause I have a lot of my own stuff going on. Fingers crossed 🤞 

Fabulous weekend…

So true!!! What an overall great weekend. I really needed it too.  

Friday started with the St Patrick’s Day celebration. Got my green on, met up with the group & we had a blast. Just kept hopping from bar & food places all night. So much fun to kick back & laugh! 🍀🌈

Saturday started with a trip to WalMart which never disappoints on the entertainment scale. Did you know there is more than 1 way to shave a rat? Apparently there is according to the cashier who was very frustrated with their computer not working. I wasn’t sure how to respond. 🤔 Then I went with my girlfriends & their daughters (total girl trip!) to see Beauty & the Beast. I thought it was good!!! On the way home texting my friend Zac about night plans & he asks me to go with to a wedding. Why not!?!? What girl doesn’t love to glam it up a little? It turned out to be at this absolutely beautiful place on the water all outside. The ceremony by the beach, the sunset with cocktails, dinner under lights & dancing by the stars. What an amazing event & evening! I love going to weddings (even if I don’t know anyone lol) cause it’s so wonderful to see all the love and be a part of people’s special day. 💕

Sunday I actually slept in. My ankle needed some elevating time. That afternoon I went with the guys to the beach for a few hours. What a way to say good bye to winter! It was a little chilly from the wind but otherwise a gorgeous day to be out there. Relaxed, read, watched the waves, toes in the sand…..ahhhh. 

It really was one of those very great enjoyable weekends. No drama. No bullshit. Nothing. I guess my only issue could have been my car which is less than a year old has a leaky tire but the dealership found the nail, ordered the new tire & it’s all covered under the extra tire policy warrant I purchased. Yay!!! So even that isn’t bad. lol  I went back to work today feeling very refreshed & happy. 😊

Don’t overthink

I’m having a good weekend & just trying not to ruin it. Lol

Friday I went dress shopping after work. Found some dresses for the reunion. It’s weird…I’m not quite sure what to wear? It says not formal but it’s drinks & appetizers so I’m thinking along the lines of a cocktail dress? I have a feeling people will be dressed all over the board so I’m aiming for the middle. I’m getting dresses as I find ones I like and then I’ll decide. 

Friday night was spent at the beach with my cornhole partner celebrating his birthday. He wanted low key and sunset so that’s what he got! It was a nice evening just hanging out, watching the water & chatting with friends. I forget how spoiled we are to have the beach so close and not take advantage more often. It really is great therapy! Saturday I actually slept in which never happens! Went shopping again and then stopped by POS’s house on the way home to touch base for later on. We went to dinner at a place on the water which was very nice and relaxing. Then we met my friend & her BF for a drink. It was a very nice night. 

Today I went to church & some more shopping before meeting POS for a late lunch after he finished work. Another friend joined us. She’s having major relationship issues with a guy (who is also a friend of ours). I feel bad for her & him…it’s gotten so crazy I really doubt it’s fixable. POS & I listened but afterwards we were both like wow. It made me realize we really are trying to work on things and how I have grown in dealing with relationship issues when I hear her say how they are acting or doing things. It’s a lot of drama and I am so glad not to be in any of it!

The rest of today has just been bumming. Took a nap during the football game. POS must of woke up cause now I hear the lawn mower going. And I’m just trying to sit back, enjoy the little moments & not overthink anything. Saw this little gem of wisdom in the bathroom at a bar this weekend (it cracks me up these bathroom inspirations): I’m going to follow that ❤️😊
