I consider myself a perky person but I also do tend to look on the wrong sides of things. I use humor to take that little flaw and turn it around. Probably why I came up with Trade em Up Tuesday. I get to giggle at all the little things that would be better if they were the opposite. (Oh and check out my guest post I did for Laura yesterday! )
As positive as I want to be – I feel like I was just mauled over by an 18 wheeler. I want a break yet everything seems to just keep piling up. Yesterday, a day that was supposed to be spent running errands around my hometown was spent in a dentist office learning that a. I need a root canal asap b. they can’t do it there c. I need to find a place to get in done in DC d. have to find a time to get it done in DC e. HAVE TO PAY FOR A FREAKING ROOT CANAL (like a months paycheck or more) and f. have to stay on antibiotics 4 times a day until I get it done (aka the pills of death that make my stomach freaking unhappy). This negative nancy came a knocking.
I would trade… not getting my couch until the end of September for an earlier visit time. Because of everyone’s work schedule, my parents can’t drive down the couch which luckily fits in their car until late September. Floor living for life.
I would trade….the fact that I am at work for being on the beach with my family. I mean who wouldn’t? Of course it is beautiful, 80 degrees bliss on the Cape Cod beach today. I got rain but they got sun. Seems unfair to me.
I would trade… my lack of food this weekend due to my stomach for being able to enjoy the food aspect of home. I basically could get no food in me this weekend (besides the lobster) so I am not feeling my best going into this crazy week. Lesson learned… being allergic to gluten means I need to be super careful in new environments so this doesn’t happen again and ruin a weekend.
I would trade… the almost hilarious amount of things I have to do on my blog for the normalcy of blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I welcome the opportunities that many companies have given me, but at the same time I blog for free and I blog for me. I feel like I am in a little bit of a pressure cooker, like I don’t want to let people down pressure cooker.
I would trade… the next two days on a campsite with 20 high school students for just working in the office. I am a nature girl but I am no camp counselor. Unfortunately, it is launch camp season meaning I won’t have internet or any alone time all day Wednesday and Thursday. We live Wednesday at 5 am (aka 430 am for me to get there) and come back Thursday around 10 pm. Wow, not what I need when I am recovering from a massive stomach upset and lack of rest. EEEEEk. No internet just tops that cake.
I would trade… the lack of time to grocery shop for a moment to breathe. With coming back to DC so late Monday night, working all day Tuesday and leaving early am Wednesday – no time was left to stock my fridge. I can’t wait for it to be Friday so I can do a big shop. The fridge is empty, like bare.
I would trade… no race in my near future for a buttload of money so I can sign up for some races. I keep having mild panic money attacks just about my spending. That being said, I am having trouble justifying signing up for any races in DC despite me really wanting to run a race. Like freaking itching to run a race.
I would trade… my DC buddy being down the Cape for her in DC to hang with me. Truth be told though, I am happy she gets a little break. She deserves it.
I would trade… a mom less Monday of running errands for running errands with my mom. Who doesn’t love doing errands with their mom? I spent Monday alone in my hometown before my flight at 6 pm. I wanted my mom, I actually almost cried out of pure stress and homesickness despite being home. It was just the fact that I knew I was flying back to Dc and the face I was alone. Man, who knew I was such a homebody.
Home is where the heart is.
Questions: What would you trade up this Tuesday?
I will also be installing Snack a Day where I review (and sometimes giveaway!) some great new snack foods for all allergy needs! Get excited!
