Thankful for the Weekend

April 4th, 2015 at 07:26 am

I put in my first full week at work this past week in a few weeks.

This morning as I woke up and rolled over I was thinking, "What day is it today? Oh yeah, Saturday! I don't have to get up anytime soon." Big Grin

Health wise I'm feeling much, much better than a week ago. I still have the deep hacking cough which makes people look at me like "why is she out and about spreading germs?" But I've finished my antibiotics so shouldn't be germy. Smile

I somehow have managed to maintain the weight I lost last week, even with a return to almost normal eating habits. I haven't done any real exercise in nearly two weeks now.

Friday after work NE and I went to "The Mother of All Garage Sales" held at the local events center. It cost $3 each to get in. Mostly, it was 30 minutes worth of slow walking.

Most of what was being sold in there was overpriced junk and stuff to clutter your home. Neither NE nor I bought anything - he was hoping to find home/car audio deals. There were a couple vendors in there that made me think of Brooklyn Girl? with all her CVS finds that she resells. Tons of shampoo, etc products.

I'll be heading off to church here soon. Hopefully I don't annoy people too much with my coughing.

Am debating about whether I'll join the biking/walking group this afternoon. I want to go, but I'm just not sure if I should go - really don't want to exacerbate my cough.

I'm really frustrated with my brother right now. Back in early February HE raised the idea of having him and mom come out here to NE in May. Since then it's been a game of tag for us to actually connect to finalize plans and let mom in on the plans (you know, so we can make sure she doesn't have plans for that weekend.) Over the last six weeks he's set appointments to talk with me at least 5 times ... which when I text him an hour or so beforehand to make sure we're still on, he cancels for one reason or another.

The last time this happened was this past Sunday. I haven't texted or tried calling him since .. mainly to see if he's going to do anything. Nada.

Times running short if we're going to get reasonable plane tickets - and possibly the hotel accommodations too. He only has ONE weekend available between May and August (otherwise has friend's weddings or work shindigs.)

I feel like saying forget it! But I would really like to have them come out here to visit, etc. Ugh.

    That would be Banker Gurl. Smile
    I am usually disappointed by big, hyped-up garage and rummage sales. I do much better just tooling around town in garage sale season and finding the little family sales.

  2. Looking Forward Says:

    Glad you are feeling better. Smile Enjoy your weekend!

    Glad you are feeling better! As for annoying family things, I am holidaying with my husband and inlaws. It is 50% fun, 50% I deserve a medal for spending three full days with them! But it is creating a memory amongst his family members so I am being nice. And that's kind of the way you should think with your family get together. It will be a nice memory for years to come. (Thrown in with a dash of annoyness!)

    CB - that's it! I knew it was spelled a bit differently. Smile I honestly wasn't expecting much more than what was there, but NE was excited about the possibilities ... so, all it cost was $3 and some gas. Smile
    LF - Thanks Smile I hope you have a good one too.

    VS - With NE I don't have too worry too much about putting up with in-laws ... he on the other hand might eventually have to deal with my relatives ... I wouldn't be so annoyed with my brother if I didn't feel like he was putting me off for something HE came up with in the first place. Actually spending time with mom/brother will be good - it's just the getting to that point that is being very frustrating.

  5. VS_ozgirl Says:

    Yeah it's one of those situations where you have to put aside the frustrating aspects and focus on creating a good memory (which I'm sure it will be) Smile

    Just keep trying to call and get him on the phone. Maybe if you call five times in one day leaving vague messages he might get curious enough to call you back! Just a thought.
