New social situation

Friday, September 09, 2011

My boss's boss - The Big Guy - has invited several of us to his home tomorrow for a cookout. I am not sure who all will be there, although I know my boss will not. I know of one other person besides The Big Guy who will be there. I bravely said my husband and I would go, even though I did not know who would be there. I doubt I would be so brave without my husband. This is probably a good experience for me to get out of my comfort zone and stretch my social adeptness (I am a homebody and do not enjoy large groups). The bean bag tournament is the big event for the day. I am no good, but I will play anyway and I will have fun. I will not obsess about whether people will laugh at my lack of skill. There is a pool, but there is no way I will be wearing my swimsuit around any coworkers. That would just be too far out of my comfort zone. I will wear jeans and a t-shirt. That will be stretch enough for me. I will even wear a ball cap because I love ball caps. It will be strange to dress that comfortably around the high-muckety-mucks, but I know they are all great and wonderful people, so it will be as comfortable as a new situation could be for me. All will be well and I will be a more well-rounded person for the experience. Hopefully I will not be any rounder after the cookout, but I will be sure to enjoy every bite just in case! emoticon

Over it

Thursday, September 08, 2011

Thanks for all the sweet comments about my yucky egg mess this morning. emoticon I got over it soon enough.

There was a guy outside my building this morning asking for money (again... he just asked me Tuesday night!), and then when I was ready to come in, he was there by the door. emoticon I didn't feel safe coming in with him right there. I was afraid he might follow me in. So the dog and I walked around more, emoticon which put me behind schedule about 15 minutes, so I was already mad about that. emoticon I wanted to do laundry this morning, emoticon so we had to cut our emoticon gym time short since we got there late. emoticon I am short on sleep emoticon (going to bed shortly!) and the broken eggs just made me crankier. emoticon I did get some from the cafeteria at work though. I was tempted to get an omelet or something else, but eventually let myself stick to the two eggs I had wanted to eat at home. emoticon

    That is odd that he continues to hang near the building but just be careful & if he persists then you might have to let the building manager know. Glad you were able to get your workout in & the dog loved being able to spend more time with you.

God bless & enjoy yourself!

Angry

Thursday, September 08, 2011

We went to the gym and did some weight machines this morning. It's been a long time and it felt good. I wanted to fix some eggs for breakfast after we got back, but the stupid carton they came in was flimsy. I think it originally had about 2 1/2 dozen eggs. I'm not sure how many I dropped on the floor today, but it was about a dozen. Now I'm angry and hungry. emoticon

    Interesting way to scramble eggs. Not too efficient, but interesting.

    All that positive energy at the gym, rotten eggs! Don't let that ruin your day. Put it behind you and focus on the good stuff!

    Take heart - they're just eggs, fragile but not really valuable. I was afraid that you were going to say you injured yourself at the gym as I started to read your post. I'm thankful it was the eggs and not you that hit the floor.

I hope you get over it soon.

    Oh man, sorry to hear about the eggs. You would think over the years they would have come up with a better container for eggs since they are so fragile but nope, it still the same.

Congrats on getting to the gym. I went for a nice run last night after I got home from work--the cooler weather makes that a little easier.

Hope your day gets better!! emoticon

    Been there, done that. If you have diabetes, you may be experiencing a BG low. Check if you haven't done so.

    Congrats on the gym work out this morning! We don't cry over spilled milk or dropped eggs. Hope someone was there to help you with the clean up. My sis has a system, if she makes a mess, drops something her husband cleans it up. If he makes the mess, she cleans it up. She says it helps with the frustration. I just have to be extra careful, there is no one but me to clean up the mess and it is still difficult to bend over.

Smile - God loves you and a lot of people here care about you!!!

So far, so good

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Every month, I miss the 1000 fitness minutes trophy by just a little bit. This month, I created a plan to help me get there. So far, I'm on track... even a little ahead of schedule! I even included a weekly day of rest in plan, so let's hope I can make it this time around.
