For some reason Sunday night was rough. What makes me mad, is there was no reason for it to be that way. I had a great day (ignoring the stomach pain portion). Something I am beginning to notice about myself is that physical pain wear me down. My stomach has not improved, I have moments of light but then back to square one. That leads me to what I like to call self sabotage. I feel a feeling and rather than talking it out with someone, reaching out I dwell alone. I make stupid decisions when I am physically feeling terrible. Woof.
Moving on, in an ideal world I would like this week to just fast forward. Instead, I am going to focus on what I have to look forward to. I just experienced my last free weekend for the next month – yep the next month. Between traveling and working, my weekends in September are planned out to the max. Not ideal but got to roll with it. Ready for a Monday?
Marvelous… MY PARENTS AND SISTER may visit this upcoming long weekend. Eeeeeek I am seriously crossing my fingers over this because I need them to visit badly. Not only will they be bringing my couch but they will have a car aka I can shop for my apartment for the first time. It will be like I actually live here! Ha, but seriously I will just be more excited to see them than anything else. I think they will all stay in my apartment so giant one room sleepover. Giggle. Man, family is the best.
Marvelous… that my sister may accompany them. She goes abroad the second week of September meaning I won’t see her until Christmas. That is insane and the longest we will have not seen each other. Sad! The worst part is she is going somewhere without a lot of communication means (I mean she only gets one real shower a week!). I am happy for her though, I am proud of her for taking this abroad trip.
Marvelous… I may be (will be!) visiting my Aunt in NYC the third weekend of September. The bolt buses are $23 dollars round trip. Heck ya! I haven’t seen her in ages plus I think I need a break from work, routine and DC. It will be good for me. I keep telling myself that because I still haven’t fully booked it because I keep saying I should just stay here. I struggle with letting myself actually do something I want to do. Terrible quality of mine.
Marvelous… my legs have felt amazing on my runs. While my stomach refuses to stop the constant trips to the bathroom, my legs at least get this training game. Without the antibiotics they are feeling fresh and alive. Boo ya.
Marvelous… I got to spend time with this girl (oh and meet her freaking adorable dog). I am not the sappy type person but it is so nice to have someone that gets you, that you can text at any hour and you know she will respond, that you can tell anything and you know she won’t judge. I haven’t had someone like that in my life for a while. Not sure if it is because I am finally more open to friendships or it is just a new environment, new people that are doing me some good. Forever grateful to say the least.
