Friday Feats & Fails 10/17/2014

I PROMISE not to sing "Friday" again.  I'm just SO excited for my weekend.  People always tell me I'm wishing my life away when I wish it was Friday and I always say I don't do much living when I'm working 40 hours a week.  I guess it all comes down to how you want to look at things.  Speaking of how we want to look at things, let's get into the Feats & Fails...

-  I took last Friday afternoon off.  I got out of work 30 minutes late.  Then, I got out of town late.  Then I didn't get where I was going in time.  I hate it when that shit happens.

-  Woke up Saturday with a sore throat which turned into a sore throat and a fever, so I didn't get to have my nephew that night because I don't want him or my sister getting sick.

-  I let myself be sucked into drama by a crazy person who seems to spread misery for no other reason than Misery loves company.  And then I nicknamed her Crazy Horse and I'm waiting to see how long it is before she gets wind of that, which might be a fail or just really funny.  Also, in hindsight, I should have nicknamed her "Misery", but she's way scarier than Kathy Bates.  Either way, I'm annoyed with myself that I got sucked in and I'm being an ass.

-  I'm having nightmares again.  And the thing is... they aren't really even nightmares.  They just upset me, and my exes keep showing up in them.  But the fact that I consider just their presence something that makes a dream a nightmare really says a lot.

-  Speaking of exes...  So, I decided to write my first guest post for another blogger.  She asked me months ago, and I worked on it and then set it aside.  Then it magically disappeared off my laptop.  Then she reminded me about it a few days ago and I've been working on it again.  Well, the subject matter is a little sensitive and I was having a hard time remembering some of the details surrounding my life at the time everything happened.  And I reached out to my ex for help.  Not my crazy, abusive ex who still slow rolls past my house, but someone who has made it pretty clear they don't respect or appreciate me in any capacity (even as a friend).  Basically, I'm mad at myself for reaching out and opening the door when I should have left it shut when I closed it last time.

- I haven't been tracking my calories, exercising or doing anything good for myself.  I'm kind of in fuck it mode.

+  Quality time with Bonehead last Friday.  He makes me smile.

+  After spending time with Bonehead, I went to see "Dracula Untold" with my brother and got to spend some time with him.  I love my brother.  Last night I was hanging out at my mom's with my brother and I got to pretend I could play guitar with my favorite guitar, and we started watching the Godzilla movie.  So that was awesome.

+  I got to see my sister yesterday.  Which is always good.  We really don't spend enough time together which is sad because sometimes she is exactly what I need.

+  I got cool stuff in my Birchbox this month, traded in some points and actually got around to writing a review for it.  Yay Me!

+  My sore throat and fever didn't turn into full blown cold or Ebola.  So there's that.

+  I finally shared my Signs It Is About to Get Weird post.

+  I got overtime.

+  There might be a super positive change in the near future.  I can't really be more specific, but I'm feeling optimistic.

+  I'm feeling really good and full of ideas this week.  Super awesome feeling!
