Weekend Recap

Monday, January 06, 2014

Well, the first weekend of the New Year has come and gone. It didnt really go how I had planned, and honestly it was difficult emotionally for me. I didnt cry, but I was definitely feeling sorry for myself, and my poor food choices mirrored that. I knew better - I was just not caring so much. I'll accept it and move on. No more bad food choices, though.

Friday after work I ran some errands and picked up a few things that I needed. Then got some Chinese takeout for dinner. I spent the evening watching tv and working on a cross-stitch I had started back in May and then forgot about for a while. All of my new bedding arrived on Friday so I also washed it and put it on my bed! Ahh new bedding makes me happy.

Saturday morning I woke up early because I was supposed to pick my friend up at the airport at 7am. I was running a little bit late, but as I was on my way, she texted me that her flight was delayed and she wouldnt be boarding for another 2 hours (she was at her connecting airport which was Denver). So, since I was already dressed to go to the gym, instead of going home I just drove there and did my 8 mile treadmill run. It was snowing when I got to the gym, and I picked up a treadmill that looked out at the track/football field. When I started my run, you could see the grass very clearly. When my run ended an hour and a half later, the grass and track was completely covered! It was snowing pretty hard, but very relaxing to watch. The 8 miles on the treadmill wasnt bad either. I ran it at an 11:30 avg pace. The only annoying thing is that the treadmill shuts off afte ran hour, so I had to restart it. Otherwise, it wasnt bad. I went home and showered afterwards, and then my friend texted that she had just boarded her plane, so I headed to the airport (since the flight from Denver to Colorado Springs is literally 10 minutes long). But her plane never took off. I waited 2 hours at the airport :/ and then finally left and went home. Since the airport is so close to my house I figured I could just drive there when she texted me she landed. She ended up stuck on a plane on the runway for 4 hours before they sent them back to the terminal and cancelled the flight! She was then put on a different flight and finally made it here at around 4:30pm. And then the airline lost her luggage. What an annoying day. I finally picked her up, and we got some takeout for dinner and I drove her to the Academy because she was already late for a meeting. Again, not at all how I had planned to spend my day. I spent the evening watching tv and doing more cross-stitching.

On Sunday I had an hour and a half hot stone massage at 10am. It was very nice. I have a hard time "relaxing" but I did enjoy this massage, especially the hot stones. It helped ease the tension in my muscles. Afterwards, I ran some errands. The weather was still pretty crappy so once I finished my errands, I just spend the day at home doing laundry and watching tv/cross-stitching. I bought a ton more scrapbooking stuff, so I need to finally start working on my scrapbooks again.

Most of the weekend I was feeling pretty sad. I knew I would so it wasnt a surprise. First weekend as a single girl, and all. I know it will get easier with time. I, of course, feel like I am the only one that is hurting and think that he probably doesnt feel hurt or sad at all. I shouldnt even be thinking about that at all, but I guess its normal. I am glad I at least got my run in. I really need to get my nails redone, and just didnt feel like doing it, so now I have to make some time this week - they are acrylics and need to be filled in pretty badly.

This week should hopefully be a good week. I RSVPed for a meetup dinner tonight, so I WILL be going to that, even if I am super shy and nervous. I have to make friends somehow. Tuesday and Thursday I have dance class. My friend who is in town for work this week wants to go see a movie either Wednesday or Friday night. And her and I are running a 10k on Saturday before she heads back to Alaska. So I should have things to keep me busy. Plus, work is starting to pick up again, too.

Hopefully I will feel less sad/hurt this week, too.

    Grieving is natural. Time heals all wounds. but I have to say, darn 8 miles, I could only wish. The message sounds great. Take care of you.

    Oooh, 8 miles... you are a bad ass!

    When ever I went through a breakup I always gave myself like 2 full weeks to just feel really hurt and sorry for myself. Two weeks was the limit though. Then I'd just force myself to look at the bright side of things... he annoyed the piss out of me when he did such and such and now I don't have to put up with it anymore... at least I'm no longer in limbo land and a decision was made... it's his damn loss because I'm are a catch... I'd just force those thoughts through my head instead of the sadder feelings.

    Eventually, I'd start feeling a bit better.

    But I'm totally jealous about the massage. I've been wanting to do one of those for a while now. Sounds amazeballs.

    So glad you are keeping busy and attacking your New Years goals.. good for you!!

    I ran 8 miles on the treadmill on Saturday too. It had snowed over here in MD on Friday and I didn't feel like running over ice and snow in the road (cause sidewalks were not cleared.) PLUS the overnight low was like, 3 degrees and I was not too keen on running in the cold either.

    If he is human, then he is grieving too.. everyone grieves differently. Two years is a good chunk of time in his life too, and I'm sure he's feeling your absence. Try not to think too hard on it though.. focus on you right now.

    I am picking up my DIL at the Denver airport Thursday night. I sure hope her flights are better than your friends. My DS, DIL and four grandkids are moving from Washington DC to the Boulder/Loveland area in February so we are meeting to look for a rental house for them. Try to keep the snow away for the weekend!

    Congratulations on doing that 8-mile run on the treadmill! I find treadmill running so boring that even a mile feels like a really long way on one!

    Give yourself permission to grieve and heal. The pain WILL go away with time, I promise! Use this time to do nice things for yourself. emoticon
