Ok, so I just finished reading all the AMAZING comments you guys left on last Friday’s post…
My heart is truly warmed through and through!
I cannot thank you enough for the commiseration, suggestions, and new perspectives.
THIS really is what blogging is all about.
I love you guys SO much!
And guess what!
Over the last week, there HAVE been a few changes and I can definitely feel the impact they’ve made even in such a short time.
Like “checking out” for a few hours and walking around downtown with BB glued to my camera…
FINALLY finding my groove at the gym…
I’ve mixed it up a LOT…different times, different workouts, different music…and it’s all helping! In fact, yesterday, as I left from work, I was actually excited to get to the gym.
You like that stank face, don’t you?
Just do me a favor and in your best Austin Powers voice say…”Grr baby!”
And last but CERTAINLY not least, just enjoying life!
A life full of “skinny cocktail” tasting, nail painting, dollar store alphabet magnets, cookie topped yogurts, delicious meals out with BB, loving on kiddie foods (you’ve GOT to try these Buddy Fruits…so good!), stress-relieveing Crayola sessions, crisp morning juices, foodie pen pal shopping, book reading, and tv watching….
You know, just to name a few!
Oh, but there’s still one more thing…
I’ve realized that a lot of my stress lately has been work related. When I found out that one of our night shift techs was looking to retire, I started doing some thinking and I think I’ve decided to take the shift.
Sunday – Wednesday 8pm-6:30AM!
I know, right?!
Luckily, since the position is not officially posted, but we still need someone to cover, I will be able to take over and “try on” the shift until a final decision is made.
I’ve worked graveyard shifts before and I know that there WILL most definitely be times where I feel like an extra from Night of the Living Dead, but I think that the decreased stress of the evening shift along with having more days off (advantage of working four 10 hour shifts) will be good for me.
But ask me how I feel after Wednesday of next week to know for sure!
When’s the last time you “checked out” and what did you do?
Any big plans for the weekend? Do tell!
