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.
