Late Day Confessions

I'm a bit late to join the Confessionals, but better late than never, right? :o)

**I am very conscious of my actions when I'm in a new situation.  I'm not really comfortable at work yet so I find myself constantly apologizing, playing with my phone, picking at my nail polish or saying yes/no ma'am (or sir) to people who are YOUNGER than me.  This is not okay!  I'm driving myself crazy but I can't stop.  Can we fast forward a few months so I feel like me please??

**I have good news...I found my planner!  It was behind my couch.  I don't know why or how or what it was doing there but I'm not asking questions.  Planner is found, I'm a happy and (hopefully) organized girl! 

**I'm thrilled to be back in the gym.  I am NOT thrilled I pulled my hamstring last Thusday. (Of course I did.  For whatever reason, I have to "injure" myself at least once a week.  Otherwise it's just not a normal week.)  What was I doing?  Oh you know, just WALKING ON THE TREADMILL.  This whole getting back into shape thing is no picnic.  Fortunately, I have a few months before bathing suit season!

**I'm avid about not having regrets.  I like to think everything happens for a reason.  While I've always regretted not keeping in touch with my nearest and dearest college friends, for some reason, this has been on my mind more than ever lately.  (I spoke to my little sis a few weeks ago, maybe that's what started it.)  It was never my plan to come back (or stay) in Texas after going to WVU.  If anything, I thought I'd start an amazing life in Pittsburgh, Baltimore or DC.  That didn't happen but that's okay.  I do think I'm where I was meant to be.  My roomates, Mere and Emily, along with my sorority sisters, have a special place in my heart.  I hate that I'm not really close with those who were such an important part of my life.  I keep up with everyone on Facebook but it's not the same.  If any of ya'll are reading this, I love you.  I'm so happy you're happy and I hope one day you will make the trek to the deep South for a few days!  And as fake as it sounds, I don't care...xoxo) :o)   

**I was dreading work today because I had to do a floor set and from what I've been hearing all week, I expected hell.  Maybe I'm nuts, but I had fun!  Yes, it's a ton of work but I loved seeing it all pay off at the end of the day.  The only hell I suffered is that I put myself on a spending freeze and refused to let myself buy anything. :o) (I may have had an incident with a few plastic pegs too. I'd advise you to not sit on one of those...ever.)

**I'm still really upset about Lucy.  A few people have tried to tease me about it and call me emotional and sensitive when I don't laugh at their jokes.  I like to think I have a good sense of humor.  But as far as I'm concerned, Lucy is my dog.  She's gone and that's on me, no matter what anyone says.  It's not funny, it's not amusing and it's absolutely nothing to joke about.  I don't expect everyone to agree with my feelings but I do expect people to respect them.  How has it been a month already??  I just want my girl home. :o(  We had news of a sighting on Wednesday but no luck finding her.  Please pray we find her soon!   

**I tend to say this a lot, but now I'm serious.  I think I may be on Lifetime one day.  The trusty police officers of Dallas have knocked on my door twice in the past two weeks looking for my neighbor.  The first time I didn't think much of it.  This week, I asked for "the reason behind their search."  (At work, I'm a nervous wreck...with the police, I'm apparently refined and polished.  ???)  They said not to worry and that I'm not in danger.  Maybe I should have paid more attention to the city notices taped to her door the past few weeks...YIKES.  Good thing I have a 5 pound guard dog!        

My parents are coming in this weekend and I'm looking forward to some low key quality parental time.  It's my Dad's birthday on Sunday and I'm looking forward to brunch with "old" family friends and I hope ya'll have a fabulous weekend! 

PS-I'm SO EXCITED about my new followers!!!!  Thank you for following me.  I promise I'll make it as entertaing as possible. :o)

Update & Confesional

Good Morning peeps!  (Or really Good Evening since I’m writing this at 10:30 Thursday night but whatever…details, details.)  ANYWAY, YAY FOR FRIDAY!! 
This is an update/confessional since I’m linking up with Leslie from A Blonde Ambition today but haven’t written since early December.  Let’s kill 2 birds with one stone, shall we?
**I apologize for stepping away from the blog, friends.  There’s a bit to catch you up on but let’s start with how HAPPY I am that 2012 is O-V-E-R.  The year ended with a loud THUD when my foster pup ran away on December 21st in my attempt to transport her.  Long story short, she freaked out when I tried to put her in the car and got away.  We still haven’t found her.  And when I say “we” I mean upwards of 200 people.  It eats at me every day and I hope to God my Lucy girl is okay and will come home soon.   (You can find info on the situation by looking up Duck Team 6 on Facebook.)   
**On the bright side, my new job has taken over my world (as most new jobs do) but I am happy, healthy and loving it.  It’s a lot of work, a lot to learn and very overwhelming but I’m anxious to get to the point where I can keep up with everyone else and hopefully one day, become as good at my job as they are at theirs!  (Seriously, these people are amazing.  Sometimes I wonder if they hired me by mistake!)
** I have 2 resolutions for 2013. The first one is to get and stay organized.  I love to have things in certain places all nice and pretty; it just doesn’t come naturally to me.  My 2nd resolution is to enjoy my life.  I’m 31 and catch myself wishing I was in my 20s again.  In 5 years, I’ll wish I was 31 again so I want to enjoy and love this time.  Resolution #1: EPIC FAIL.  It’s January 17th and I’ve already lost my daily planner.  Resolution #2: so far so good!  WOO-HOO!
**I was FINALLY cleared by my doctor to start working out again.  I’ve never considered myself athletic but O-M-GEE.  I love a good workout.  I had no idea how much I missed it until I realized how happy I was to leave the gym, wake up sore and NOT CRAVE WINE.  Healthy Me=Happy Me.  Who knew??
**It’s possible I’m becoming a ridiculous amount of girlie.  I’m not happy with my outfit I picked for tomorrow (although I LOVE it) because it clashes with my nail polish.  On top of being girlie-er than girlie, I’m also stubborn.  So even though I hate that my outfit doesn’t compliment my nail polish, I’m still going to wear it.  Simply because I want to.
Happy Weekend loves!!  I hope ya’ll have a fabulous one :o)
