Dear Diary Thursay,

I am in a real funk lately and I am hoping taking a long weekend will help me get out of it. My attitude is just horrible and I feel like I am just spinning my wheels in a couple areas of my life. One of the things that I am going to be doing to help me out is that Dylan and I are renewing our gym membership this weekend, so I think getting out to the gym is going to help alot. I'm also going to be spending time doing a lot more projects around the house and yard....keeping myself active allows me time to put things in perspective. And finally, I have a different attitude about work. I have decided that putting yourself out there all the time and busting your hump does not get you anywhere in my workplace....other than getting a lot more work. So I am going to come into work, put my hours in, not go "above and beyond" anymore, and come home. I think changing my attitude about work is going to help A LOT with everything else. Keeping my fingers crossed I can do it!

And I believe that I will finally be able to see a movie this weekend with Dylan....or two! WOO HOOO!!!!

Dear Diary Wednesday....

Thank GAWD the week is almost half way over as I can not begin to describe how much I am currently hating my job. Thankfully I realize that my job is only a very small part of who I am and that it is up to me on whether I choose to allow this to ruin my day or not. And I choose not.

I am very excited about the weekend coming up because it looks like I will be able to have an EXTENDED weekend with my husband. We really didn't celebrate V-day at all, so we are going to try and go out and do some fun things this weekend...I hope, I hope, I hope.

And my bitch for the day....I'm gonna keep it to myself.

Dear Diary Tuesday...

Okay, we are gonna try this one more time. Dylan and I are going to ATTEMPT to have a three day weekend together and actually spend some QUALITY time together, just the two of us, hopefully not spending it cleaning, or fixing something, or dealing with a sick pet, etc etc etc. It would be nice to actually have a Valentine's Day with each other....even if it is a week after the fact!

I got home yesterday and was just exhausted. I stopped by the folks house and gave my Mom a shower and then put up her hair, headed home and had dinner and just collapsed. I have not been sleeping well again for about three weeks so it was nice to be able to fall asleep almost instantly and stay asleep (well almost) for the entire night. Hopefully this is a sign of how I will feel tonight since it is 6:55 am and I am already exhausted!

My Mom has another doc appointment this Thursday and the decision will be made on whether she will need physical therapy OR what our next step. Hopefully the next step is not more surgery, but we will have to see what happens. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Oh, and the rotating schedules at work start on March 2nd. Going to be interesting on how that turns out......

Dear Diary Monday...

I can honestly say I am glad the weekend is over with. I am not a big believer in Valentine's Day because I don't think I need to have one day out of the year to remind myself of who I love. Plus, I am not the most romantic person on the earth.

So, Friday I got off work and met up with the group for dinner at Iggy's. Thanks again to Toni for organizing it and the company was awesome!! It was really nice to connect with everyone again.

Saturday we got up and decided to stay home and make chili and then snowblow all day. I know, I are jealous. Thankfully Dylan had rented some movies the day before so we watched "The Lost Kingdom", "Pineapple Express", and "The Rocker".....all pretty entertaining.

Sunday we spent the day relaxing and being lazy. Dylan did due a ton of laundry, which was awesome....but I was totally lazy. The highlights of the weekend being going over to the folks house twice a day (like normal) and the snow. Yep, I know, you are still jealous.
