Friday Feats & Fails 11/14/2014

I know we missed Feats & Fails last week with everything I had going on... and we're running late this week.  Maybe we should make it something we post in the evening?  To purge all that Friday Work Day stuff and free our minds for the weekend?  Let me know what you think in the comments.

FAIL:
-  I made a big boo-boo and did the thing I always tell people not to do to me and I surprised someone with my presence.  Which is fine, except it seriously messed some things up and I feel bad about it. 

-  I didn't get my house cleaned so I could have a fresh new start at home when I started my new job.  Sucky pants.

-  It was a week full of my exes.  Literally.
 I saw The Boyfriend That Was twice this week and he showed up on my newsfeed in a promotion for a local radio station (I have him blocked)... which sucked because I don't even want to see a picture of him. 
I got hate mail from another ex.  I call him The White Demon. Yes... HATE MAIL, with a stamp and everything.  The thing is... he probably doesn't even realize how hateful his message was because it was a mix between insulting me and sexually harassing me.  I'm sure he thinks his sexual harassment is uber-charming or something.  Asshat.
Last but not least, the ex who just won't go away kept messaging me.  His greeting?  "Boobies".  Wish I was kidding.  But yes, my ex sends me a single word message when he wants to talk, and it is "Boobies".  Gawd.  I just quit answering.  Ain't nobody got time fo' dat, fool!

-  Being a cat lady is hard sometimes.  There was some kitty sickness this week and it was not awesome.

-  I still haven't gotten my sister's birthday present.  Shh, don't tell her.


 FEATS:
+  I had an AWESOME first week at my new job.  My new boss is awesome.  His wife is awesome.  My coworkers... I don't know about awesome, but they don't bother me so there's that. I seem to be catching on quick.  My boss said he is very happy and thinks I will do well.  I'm really, really excited and thrilled.

+  Last week, I was really nervous about sitting down, facing rejection, owning up to my behaviors and holding someone accountable for theirs.  Long story short... Bonehead and I had a fight.  BUT... it is in the FEAT section because while I was terrified to face rejection, I still showed up.  And you know what?  While I may have messed some things up, I'm ok that I did because I needed to straighten things out between us.

+  About that fight... we wouldn't have made up if it wasn't for a good friend who helped me through it and stayed on my ass about not chickening out.  Sometimes, you just need someone who knows you to be like, "Hey, trying is the best thing for you".  And I'm so thankful for that.

+  Mom's birthday went well.  I got a cake.  I made a lasagna.  It was a huge lasagna.  And when I say huge I mean I suspect it weighed in at 30 pounds.  So I did a little TOO well, but everyone liked it and I'm proud of myself so I guess that is really all that matters.  And dessert was incredible...see below.


+  It snowed.  Which SUCKED.  But it didn't stick on the sidewalk.  So that is a positive. 

+  I didn't shit myself at the Post Office today.  Thank god for small favors.

+  I got my first Ipsy box.  Review coming shortly.

+  I got my Thanksgiving cards out.  Fucking Yay Me!!


I think that is everything.  Overall, very tiring but super awesome week.  Thanks for reading.
