I almost didn’t write this post. Marvelous was kind of the last word I wanted to hear myself utter. Let’s just say I actually feel more stressed than before this weekend. My apartment is in shambles, today was way too long for my liking, my stomach hates me and I have to somehow fix all this before my long day at work on Tuesday. Not ideal. Our first touch of food was 845 pm Sunday night, another not ideal situation. I just have to breathe.
Again, another weekend that seriously blew by. This was my last relatively free weekend in September and last break until Thanksgiving. I also decided going to New York City in two weekends was a bad idea, I just don’t feel my best and think I need to lay low. Let’s forget those little details, shall we? (And of course thank you to Healthy Diva Eats for keeping us positive each Monday!)
Marvelous…a weekend with my dad was somewhat of a success. Basic furniture like table, couch and tv stand – check. Still no chair for the table but I mean who eats sitting down no a days? Jokes. It looks like someone actually lives there! Even better, my craft box came down. I do get excited about the little things.I am hoping to get a grocery shop in because my dad was furious when he saw an empty fridge and bare cabinets.
Marvelous…my dad made an eight hour drive just to run around like a crazy person with me to set up my apartment. We may not have accomplished everything but he seriously made my weekend so wonderful.
Marvelous… my apartment can finally get those ‘Alex’ touches that will come slowly but surely. That will come in pictures for the walls, home-y type activities and maybe even entertaining people. This aspect I would rather take my time with.
Marvelous… I see the GI doctor tomorrow. I have never been more excited to see a doctor. I do worry though I may be on some crazy medicine or dietary restrictions for a bit and with a wedding this weekend, that could be no fun.
Marvelous… it is a three day work week for me because I head off to Lexington for my friend’s wedding on Friday. While I am so freaking excited to see my best friend marry an amazing guy, something she truly deserves, I am not looking forward to the weekend. Selfish, I know. I just already know I will be seeing many college enemies and triggers. So not excited about that. Mentally, I keep trying to prepare myself but I know nothing can truly be prepared for until I hit it.
Questions: What is marvelous today? How do you mentally prepare for a challenge?
