Hey There!

Happy Friday to you!

It wasn’t even a complete week at work, yet it really seemed to drag.  I don’t even want to imagine next week, as it’ll be my first full week in the office since before Christmas.  Maybe it’ll surprise me though.  You never know. Staying positive!

Want to know my positive thought of the day? Aside from obviously being happy that it’s Friday, of course!

OUR FLOORS WILL BEGIN TO BE PUT IN THIS WEEKEND!!

OMG, Guys, I can’t tell you how happy I am.  We’re getting so close to being able to move back home.  We still have until at least the end of the month before we’ll be able to get back in there and make our house a home again, but at least I see the light at the end of the tunnel.  We’re almost there!

After the floors we still have to paint, finish the molding, buy furniture and get appliances; however, Rob and I are SO ready to get back home that we’ll move in with a blowup mattress the first chance we can get!  It’ll be nice to have our own space again and not have to live on concrete that is swarming with ants that like to attack me!!

So, that’s what’s making me smile this Friday, how about you?  What’s something positive that you’re looking forward to?

Hi There!

How’s this Friday treating you so far?  Honestly, I can’t believe it’s already Friday.  The days off earlier this week, due to the Christmas holiday, threw my schedule off.  It was refreshing to have so many days off in a row, especially since I got to spend some time with friends and family.  Rob and I also took a HUGE weight off our chests by completing the itemization of the contents in our house that were lost in the storm.  When the last item had been entered and we clicked “save”, Rob and I looked at each other and slapped each other 5.  LOL.  Knowing that we had to finish that spreadsheet really was weighing on our minds ever since Sandy did her damage.  Now, we just have to wait to see what the insurance company says.  Please keep your fingers crossed for us.

Random Thought of the Day

 Last night, I was in one of my grumpy moods again. 

 

Man, this funk has got to go! 

 

I feel HORRIBLE because when I am down it brings Rob down, as well.  In the past, when I was single, I was able to sulk in my apartment all night and put on a smile during work hours and no one had any clue that I wasn’t as happy as I let on.  Now, it isn’t quite so easy.  I’m still able to put that smile on at work, but when I get home I try to keep it up since Rob is there.  I’m not always able to keep it up though and last night was one of those nights.  I saw the concern in his face.  He just wants me to be happy.  Maybe when we move back into our home I’ll be able to slip out of the funk, but that is about 2 months away.  I can’t torture this poor man (and myself) for that long!

 I keep reminding myself what I stated in yesterday’s post“Focus on the positive and keep busy with those things!”   This weekend I think I’m going to take one of those hot yoga classes that I mentioned.  Next week will be the time to try the boot camp class with my friend from work.  Exercise has always been a great stress reliever for me. 

I’m also trying to go to bed earlier.  I find that being up too late leads to bad eating behaviors. 

Last night, I left Rob while he watched tv and found my way into the bedroom with a book that I’ve been reading.  I was about 1 ½ pages in when my eyelids grew heavy and I fell asleep.  That was the first full night’s sleep I’ve had in forever.  Lately, I’ve been up until 2, 3 and even 4 in the morning.  My body hated me!  I think that going into the bedroom at a normal hour, even if it isn’t to go to sleep right away, is going to help a lot.

Now, it’s time to get this work day started.  There are only hours between me and the upcoming long weekend.  Yay!!

 Have a great day!
