Dear Diary Thursday....

Today and tomorrow and I have a LONG weekend...YEAH! I took Monday and Tuesday off so that I can prepare myself for Halloween.....and unfortunately, I am not as excited as I have been in past years. I am hoping a weekend PRIOR to my favorite holiday will put me in better spirits.

Dylan and I went to dinner with his folks last night to Olive Garden and had a great time....even driving home in snow. We were there for about three hours and it felt like three minutes. It was nice just hanging out with his parents, who always seem to be full of energy.

Today I am going to work on staying productive, getting as much done as I possibly can both at work and at home. I know I have a few small projects that I need to take care of at home, so I plan on doing those as soon as I can. As for work, I have a few small projects that I came in early to take care of so that I can spend the day training for another position, as well as training somebody to handle my groups. And I am very excited that I get to go to lunch today with an old co-worker to Su Casa! It will be nice to touch base and enjoy each other's company.

As for this coming weekend, Dylan and I are going out on a date on Friday....not sure exactly what we will be doing, but it will be fun. Whatever we don't do on Friday night, we will do on Saturday and then the next three days (Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday) I will be spending with my folks getting ready for HALLOWEEN!

Happy Thursday to everyone!

Dear Diary Wednesday...

Oh, something just happened to me here at work that put me in such a bad mood that I decided I needed to blog and get my mind focused elsewhere!

Came into work today with all the lights in downtown off....and it was eerie! We had a "flicker" in our building which corrupted our server so it took them about two hours to get us all back up and running. It was irritating to not be able to do what I had come in to work on!! Oh well, guess somebody was trying to tell me it was "relaxation time".

Last night was a mildly relaxing night. I ran my Mom to the bank and then went home to have dinner with Dylan. We watched a bit of tv and then I took a bubble bath, and we both relaxed in bed, reading. I tossed and turned the rest of the night because I was just too warm and couldn't cool my core temperature down. Oh well, I probably have slept too much the last few days anyways.

Things on the "personal front" have changed as well. I have been working on "personal projects" all week and have made some improvments and have cleared out some "road blocks" to making myself a healthier person. I have come to realize that I have allowed some very selfish behavior enter into my life and have removed it....which was a blessing. I have also opened myself up to some new experiences.....and have gained some great insight with those. I am going to continue "weeding" my behaviors and see what I can be left with....hopefully a healthier person in the end. If not healthier, at least with a lot less emotional baggage!!!

Dear Diary Tuesday...

My hours at work have changed....and I could not be more pleased. I will be working 6:00am - 3:00pm starting on Monday. If you know me, than you know how much I like coming in early and getting home early. Even a 30 minute change makes me ecstatic. This way I will have that much more time to get to the gym early.

Last night I went home and took my Mom grocery shopping. I then headed back to my home and watched a PPV wrestling match with Dylan and ate dinner. I wish I could say I "enjoyed" the wrestling match but I can say that I was entertained. I couldn't watch it very long as I was longing for some "me time" in a bubble bath and then reading a bit. It was nice to have a nice that was not hectic.

This week, I believe, is going to be a pretty quiet one. I have just a couple of things that "need" to be done like going to dinner with the in-laws on Wednesday. Other than that, I can do some much needed relaxing and enjoy some time with Dylan that doesn't involve scrubbing our house or getting ready for a get-together. Ahhh.....relaxation......

Dear Diary Monday...

Holy shit I am glad the weekend is over!!!

Thursday I took the day off from work and Dylan and I scrubbed the entire house down! It was insane!! We just took out time and did some MUCH needed cleaning, laundry, vacuuming, and decorating. It was just nuts!

Friday we got up early and took the dogs in to be groomed, grabbed some breakfast, and got all of our grocery shopping done for the party. We then picked up the dogs and did some running around...just something fun to relax ourselves and spend the day together. We went to Rodizio for dinner and then hit the sack early as we were both exhausted.

Saturday was THE DAY. We spent the day setting up for the party, cooking, organizing, and last minute shopping. We then had our friends (AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR COMING!) arrive and ate, watched movies, and most of all, just spent some great time with great people. After the festivities had been completed, Dylan and I spent a couple of hours cleaning the house back up, taking out the garbage, and just putting things back in their proper place so that we wouldn't have to do it in the morning.

Sunday....was a weird day! I was up a great deal of the night after the party not feeling very well and just not able to sleep, so I eventually just got up for the day and went downstairs to sit in front of the tv. Now, keep in mind that I didn't go to bed until 1:00 am, was completely sick and out off bed from 2:00 am until 4:00 am and got up at 6:30 am. Dylan got up around 8:00 and joined me downstairs....and we literally did not move the entire was pathetic. We watched all of the TiVo and just relaxed. Dylan got some much needed, and well deserved sleep all day.

So, off to the start of another FANTASTIC week. My attitude is going to be much better this week and I am going to start to work on some "self projects" that I have been putting off. Time for me this week!
