What’s up people?  Happy Fri-yay!

I’ve only been back at work for 4 days and I am only treading water.   I was prepared for July to be crazy but that crazy started 3 weeks early.   I came back from vacation to find hundreds of emails and that the next 4 weeks are full of trainings and meetings.  I need more hours in the day.  And more caffeine.  Some of these meetings are 8 hours long.   I apologize now if I start making no sense over the next few weeks.  πŸ˜›

Speaking of long meetings?  Any tips for staying awake?  I have troubles in enclosed spaces and after a few hours a meeting room becomes a small space.

Can I just say that I’m loving the extendable visors in my new car?  It’s the little things right?

There should be a bullshit detector at the DMV.  I have to renew my license this year and my last few have all been by mail.  My picture and information haven’t been updated since I was 19.😯  My weight was wrong then- 40 pounds more than what I really weighed at the time- and I didn’t bother to correct it today.   She asked if it had changed and even though I know full well I weigh 30 lbs more than it says- I said it’s all good.  

How old is your driver’s license picture?

What are you doing this weekend?

Happy Friday Eve!

Nope, it’s Friday now.  πŸ˜›

I am so looking forward to a 3 day weekend.  I have so many things I need to do.  My car has reached a ridiculous level of dirty again.    And I probably should get in a long run.   Seems like a smart thing to do with a race next week.

So I bought a new sports bra.  Realized it was past time to replace some of mine but the store had very few in my size.  Guess it’s a popular size?  The only color they had was white, kind of boring but whatever.   Then I wore it.  Makes no sense but I felt weird having my straps show.  Purple, coral or flowers and I have no problem but something about the white made me want to cover it up!  That doesn’t even make sense!


My stomach has been an asshat of a different level this week.   I was having a pretty good month- still sick everyday but having a good month- but this week the right side has been hurting abnormally.  Not cool.  I’m pretty good at ignoring pain and it’s nothing too severe but it’s not a normal spot.  Boo.

I’m debating seeing a movie this weekend.   I’m on the fence about the new Pirates movie and can’t decide if it’s worth the expense.  Part of me also wants to go car shopping.   nothing wrong with my car, I’ve just had it for 3 years.  That sounds bad I know but this is car number 10… no 9.  Crap, I’ve lost count.

Random- Did you know that Luffa’s are a vegetable?  I had no idea.  I feel like I know nothing now.    So you shower with a vegetable?  Huh?

What are your plans this weekend?

Friday!!!! Yay!!!Β  Oh wait, it’s Thursday.Β Β  But it’s my Friday, I have a 3 day weekend!Β  Woot Woot!

I’ve started this post multiple times over the past 2 weeks but dozed off while writing it…oops!Β  I’ve been so damn tired these past 2 weeks.Β  I have no idea what’s up.Β  Can I blame the weather?Β Β  This is the weirdest damn May I can remember.Β  On day it’s on fire, the next it’s freezing and misting.Β Β  Grrr, just pick one already, me and my allergies can’t take it.

I think the universe is telling me to watch less tv, half the newer shows I watched this year were canceled.Β  With Bones and Grimm gone too, my background distractions are all gone.Β  How can I multitask now? πŸ˜›

Work has been going well with the new company.Β  Yeah we have our days of “huh?” but for the most part things are going well.Β  It’s hard to complain when they treat to breakfast and lunch.Β  πŸ™‚Β  Well, my waistline may have some complaints soon but yumm.

Share something random!

What are you looking forward to?

Happy Friday!!

First week post merger is almost done!  Woo hoo!  I didn’t mess up answering the phones as bad as I thought.  πŸ˜›  Only a few times.

Rain is coming back, boo.   While I am over the rain and dealing with it, it’s kind of shocking how quickly all the lush green started to go brown in the last 2 weeks.   Anyways, it’s only supposed to be for a few days.

from Tuesday’s run

Oh, speaking of the new company- they treated us to lunch on Monday.  Since I always have a late lunch I am weird about what food I will order since it has to wait a couple hours.  I ordered the grilled cheese.  Holy crap, this was the most amazing thing ever.    I ate part of it when it arrived and reheated the rest at lunch.  Seriously, it was awesome.    Oh yeah, the fries were damn good too.

I had to go to an IRS office to prove who I was.  That was fun.    This was after a phone call where I spoke with an unbelievably rude representative from the IRS.    Can the person who tried to fraudulently use my social security number and get a massive refund just pay my taxes this year?  That would be nice, ok, thanks.

I won’t lie, I really just want to spend a day sleeping.  Is that bad?  If it could be on a beach in a hammock, all the better but at this point just sleep.  I’m still feeling a little ragged around the edges after last week.

I totally had something else to say but just completely blanked…oops!  Your turn!

What are you doing this weekend?

What up Friday?!Β  Woot Woot!

Ok, that was cheesy.Β  Sorry, it’s been an odd week.

So today is St. Patrick’s Day but it seems like everyone partied last weekend?Β  I was a little stumped by some things I saw on social media.Β  Then again, I’m kind of homebody so maybe I was the only clueless one.Β Β  I mean I can understand why you wouldn’t want to race the morning after St. Patrick’s Day.Β  Just ouch.

A sinkhole opened in work town!Β  Holy crap!Β  It’s a small one but seriously those things only happen on tv in other places.Β  So weird.Β Β  And freaky.

Speaking of freaky, have seen that Kripsy Kreme is making green donuts for today?Β Β  Ummm, I think they went too far.

Part of me wants to run a 5K this weekend.Β  Part of me wants to sleep in.Β  Am I really that lazy?Β Β Β  Or that I doubt my follow through for running another 8 miles after that to finish my long run.

What are you doing this weekend?

Anyone racing?Β  Any parties?

Anyone sleeping in? πŸ˜›
