Friday and a Funny Story

Friday, November 22, 2013

It's Friday! So let me tell you a funny (embarrassing) story!

I was on Facebook earlier today and I went to send someone a message, and noticed that on my Messages page, there is a secondary folder labeled "other" that I never knew existed (probably because I rarely read my facebook messages). Well, I clicked on it to see what was in there - mostly spam. Except there was one email from J's youngest sister from May 2012. Umm... that was like a year and a half ago. Asking me for advice on a birthday present for J. Can you just imagine for a second the absolute mortification I am feeling as I see this message and realize that a year and a half has gone by and I NEVER responded!!!

The thing about being in the military and not living near family, is that I've never met J's family, except his mom because she's visited twice this year. J's met my family because he came home with me twice, but I've never gone with him to visit his family. So I've never met his sisters. And to realize that she reached out to me a year and a half ago and I never responded! OMYGOSH! She must think I'm so completely rude!!! I immediately responded and apologized, and she replied with an lol and we laughed it off, but yeah. That doesnt take away the complete embarrassment I am continuing to feel over this! Jeesh! Stupid Facebook!!

So yeah. Went to my jazz dance class last night. Half the class didnt show up, so it was a very small class and we concentrated on more leaps again. We were doing this one leap, and I knew a different variation to it that no one else in the class had done, so I had to demonstrate the leap multiple times. I think my shin pain is coming from using muscles I havent used in so long dancing! It's definitely not the same pain you feel from shin splints. I was sweating a lot during and after this class, so it must have been a good class. Our teacher said that after Thanksgiving we will start doing more combinations instead of only focusing on technique, so I am looking forward to that!

I am also looking forward to the weekend! It is snowing again today - I was once again hoping for work being closed, but that didnt happen so here I am. I actually have to go up to the Air Force Academy this afternoon to meet with a client, and I am really dreading having to make that drive in the snow. But once the meeting is over I am done for the day, and officially on vacation until December 2nd! I am not leaving for NJ until Monday afternoon, but I am excited to not work for a whole week!!

Weekend plans include sewing, running 5 miles on Saturday - looks like it will be a treadmill run because it's going to be in the teens and I am so not ready for cold weather running yet - cleaning the house, doing laundry and dishes, and packing. So, it should be a busy weekend, and hopefully I will stay cozy during this cold weather!

    That is funny....I don't do FB, just no time. SP is all I have and so never even made an account. Most people don't check it all the time or see all the messages, so don't feel bad. My DH has an account and I know he never checks his or responds to anyone, we just use it to get to see pics of the grands and other family members that live far away.

    Add me to the list of people that never noticed the "other" folder in FB. I wish they would stop making changes all the time! emoticon

    Sounds like you have a busy weekend ahead, So not ready for the cold here either... Enjoy your vacation! emoticon emoticon

    That totally happened to me! It was a woman I met at the Westpoint ball complimenting my hair style after she sent me photos! I felt so bad. I think she was in my "other" folder because I hadn't friended her yet. So glad I'm not the only one this has happened to!

    emoticon I don't know what's worse -- having snow and not getting work canceled or living where I do where it never snows and knowing work will only get canceled for a hurricane.

    I agree about Facebook. Something similar has happened to me there and I rarely use FB much. Good on the exercise and the dance!!! emoticon

    You just made me check my Facebook other messages....boy, they're old ;-)
    Don't feel's not your fault it didn't go into your regular folder. It's because you aren't friends that it was filed there....for people who aren't friends they have to pay $1 to send you a message that will go to your inbox.
    Yay for dance class!!
    Yay for a week off of work!!
    Have a good weekend :-)
