Dear Diary Friday....

YAY for Friday!

I took the folks to Costco and Petsmart after work, so I didin't get home to late. Thankfully I still was a bundle of energy so I got a few things done around the house and then finally sat down to relax. I love having the motivation and drive and ENERGY again to do normal, every day things.

Today is going to be a busy day at my work. I have to send a special e-mail to all of my clients, I have two reports I need to run, have a lunch date, AND am getting my hair done at 2:00. However, I know it will make the day go by fast, so I like it.

I brought in my wedding pictures today to show a guy friend of mine at work and it gave me an opportunity to go through the pictures and see all of my beautiful friends...the ones that bring positive energy and support to my life. I know I don't get to tell them as much as I should how much I love and appreciate all they have done for me, and I am going to work on that more for 2008. The process of "growing up" is sometimes a hard one and you have to move many negative forces to the side of your Path so that you can move on unhindered, but I have discovered it is worth it to be surrounded by love and support, of which I am blessed.

Happy weekend everyone!

Dear Diary Thursday....

Dylan is now officially on his OT schedule that started last night. We got to see each other, off and on while he was getting ready, for about 3 minutes yesterday. I probably won't see him again until Saturday morning as I have plans after work tonight and tomorrow night. Yep, it sucks but the money will be helpful for Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, I started our Christmas cards last night and managed to get 18 of them completed. I plan on doing anywhere from anotehr 10-20 in the next few days and will get them mailed probably sometimes this weekend. Just one more thing that I am accomplishing for Christmas as early as I can. I think next week I will probably start some wrapping of gifts...everything in moderation but getting done before the big DAY.

Oh, and Saturday....Christmas shopping extravaganza. I am spending the morning taking my Mom shopping and then Dylan and I will spend the evening shopping. I am wondering when I will finally be tired of Christmas?

Dear Diary Wednesday...

Oh, it is a wonderful day! I got home from getting my nails done last night and the weather, and the roads, were so bad that Dylan and I decided to just have dinner, curl upon the couch, and watch tv....then go to bed. He had not slept very well yesterday so he needed to catch a couple of hours before going in to work. Me, on the other hand, went right to sleep and slept the entire night through, and only awakened when my alarm went off this morning. WOO HOO!!!!! I think the insomnia is finally on it's way out the door. I feel so good today, that I am actually scared of myself.

Tonight....not sure what I am doing. Dylan is going in at 5:00 for the next three nights, so I might do a bit of shopping with my folks, maybe a bit of cleaning at our house, a bit of laundry, or a bit of nothing....just gonna have to see. Oh, and I want to get a start on my X-mas cards....I will be doing that at least one night this week.

Okay, here is my irritation of the day....not sure why this is irritating me. People that are in constant need of affirmation from ANYONE who will listen. Seriously. If you are so pathetic that you need to involve yourself in 40 different projects, 40 different relationships, 40 different religions, 40 different ANYTHINGS just so that somebody pats you on the back, you are in need of some help. GOOD GAWD! Seriously.

Dear Diary Tuesday...

Don't you hate it when you can't remember whether you took a pill or not? That is where I am at right now....I can't remember if I took my medication or not and am feeling a bit "strange". I think I am actually causing myself some undue stress over it. Gotta calm down.

Last night I went and had my old set of nails removed as I am getting a new set tonight. My old set looked absolutely HORRIBLE and they were pulling up, had discolored, and I just didn't like them at all. I am really excited about trying a new place tonight. I have seen their work and am impressed...the downside is that they are a bit more expensive than what I normally pay. Oh well...I'm worth it!

After that I headed over to my folks house to run my Mom to the pharmacy to get my Daddy's prescription. And then I finally headed home. Dylan made us a yummy dinner and we watched a couple of TiVo programs and then I went to bed. One of the side effects of my medication is insomnia so I sleep when I can. I was doing fine, right up to the point that somebody called my house at 11:00pm last night. Lucky for them that they hung up before I answered or they probably would not have liked what I had to say. So, after that, I was pretty much wide awake for the rest of the night/early morning.

After getting my nails done tonight, Dylan and I are headed over to WW to sign up again. Now that I have motivation and determination, we want to make another go of a healthy lifestyle change. I am actually pretty darn excited about this!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Dear Diary Monday...

Wow...what a four day weekend. Let's catch up, shall we?

Wednesday, after work, we headed over to Dylan's folks house for Thanksgiving dinner. As always, the food was fantastic and the company was wonderful. We brought the wine and the pies, and being on the medication I am currently on, I am not suppose to drink at all, but I did have a couple of glasses of wine and was fine.

Thursday I got up and headed over to my folks house with the HUGE turkey and we made stuffing and got it in the oven. I was seriously shocked that the huge think fit, but it did! I then headed home and did some laundry, made garlic rolls, and got all pretty. I then headed back over to my parent's house and we got dinner ready and had a great time. Unfortunately, Dylan had to work that night, but he had some wondeful leftovers to take with him!

Friday I got up, got dressed, and headed over to my folks house to SHOP! It was actually a lot of fun and my Daddy did great keeping up with us. They are almost finished with their Christmas shopping. That night, Dylan and I had PIZZA and watched was wonderful.

Saturday, I took my Mom to Instcare and found out that she has stress-induced psoriasis all over her arms. Four prescriptions later, we headed home. I got them a big crockpot of ham and beans going, got her medicated, and headed home. I did a little bit of laundry and then got dressed and Dylan and I headed out for dinner and some minor shopping. We ended up coming home a little early as we both had headaches, but still had a fantastic time.

Sunday...oh Gawd, Sunday! We got up and scrubbed the entire house down....floorboards, some walls, the mirrored name it. Everything has been dusted, scrubbed, disinfected....all of it! I can't believe how beautiful the house looks AND smells.

Coal is still doing awesome. He will have an appointment in a couple of weeks but I am sure that the doctor is going to be very impressed with how well is he is coming along...and the we can get him shaved down for CHRISTMAS!

Is it sick and wrong that I am really looking forward to Christmas this year??

Happy Monday everyone!
