Frustrations!

It's been one of those days!  I finally got notification that the post office had my package.  It got there too late to be delivered today.  I went over there twice trying to get it and I couldn't either time.  The first lady was really helpful and tried her best.  The second time, the guy was an ass.  He is the same one that I can't stand when he works the counter at the other location.  I really want to punch him in the face. UGH.  He is such an ass!

Anyway!  I didn't get my package.  Hopefully it will be delivered tomorrow.  We'll see.  I think that taking 11 days to get here is pretty ridiculous.  The best part?  UPS transferred it to to USPS last night.  It then went to Roanoke and  back to Danville for no apparent reason. ~_~;  So annoying.  I hope all my goodies will be worth it!

The first trip out, I went and hit the Starbucks drive thru.  I got a tall cascara latte.  I needed it!  Later, my friend asked if I wanted to go to lunch.  I did, so we met at a local restaurant.  I've never been to this restaurant before.  It was pretty good.  I had breakfast food.   After I left there, I went to the Food Lion at Ballou Park and was going to buy some of the one touch latte stuff.  They were out of caramel.  I went to the Food Lion on Westover and was able to find some there.  I got in the 12 or fewer line and some woman with 16 items was in front of me.  If that wasn't enough, when I went out to get in my car, she was parked next to me and she was loading her car on the passenger side. ~_~; I wanted to smack her, too!

I finally got in my car and headed home.  There was no way I was going anywhere else!  Hopefully tomorrow will be better.  I wouldn't have gotten Starbucks today, but I really needed it and it was double star day! :p


Friday reflections

I probably should post right now as I'm stressed out.  My friend is still not well and I dressed and drove to his house to carry him to the hospital and he wouldn't go.  I am tired of being stressed and worried when he won't do anything.  He did tell me that the hospital scheduled an MRI on Sunday, so I told him, okay, I'll go home.  I didn't sleep well last night.  I left my phone on in case he had an emergency.  I HATE to leave my phone on when I sleep.  I have enough trouble sleeping without worrying about the phone ringing and waking me up.  Luckily, it didn't, but I still didn't sleep because I kept expecting it to ring. UGH.  I'm glad it's stretch day on the workout calendar.  I definitely need a day of  rest!

In other news, I actually wanted to update my feelings about my layout.  I just got off track there for a bit.  So, after sleeping (barely) on it, I looked at it again today.  I think I really like it.  I might change the background and colors, but everything will stay the same. I'm loving the fonts.  I will probably play around with it today with different backgrounds just to see how I like those.  Hopefully, I will lose some of my stress.  Starbucks would be great, but I don't think even Starbucks would help today!


Stress!!!!!!!!!!!

What a day.  Everything was going as normal until I got to doing my workouts.  I was done with two and had started the third when my neighbor knocked on my window.  I went to see what the issue was and she told me my friend (the one that I walk with) had a medical issue at work and had been taken to the hospital.  I changed clothes and headed to the hospital.  Of course my car was acting up horribly.  I finally got there, parked, and went in.  I talked to the admissions lady and she said he wasn't there and there was no ambulances on the way in!  I didn't know what to think then.  I called his place of work and found out that they had taken him to one of the urgent care places in our city.  I called there and was put on hold and then disconnected. ~_~; I just headed over there.  I get there and ask and the lady goes to check.  She says, yes, he is there and is about to come out.

His nephew was there with him so he had a ride to his next stop.  The hospital.  He had to go to have out patient tests done.  I made sure he didn't need anything and came home.  My nerves were shot at this point.  I saw the neighbor and gave her an update and then came in and fixed lunch.  I did my other workouts and then was going to relax.  My friend texted me that he was home, so I figured he was in for the night and I didn't have to worry.

Not so much!  He texted later and asked if I wanted to ride a few places!? NO.  I told him I would come and get him and pick him up and carry him to the places.  He was still not right and confused.  I took him the places he needed to go and he made my stress level go right back up.  I carried him home and came back here.  Now I'm home and hopefully I won't have to leave again tonight.  I was headed to take a long hot bath when he texted.  I may or may not take one now.  I am so stressed!

Okay, sorry for the long stress post!  Hopefully tomorrow's post will be more fun.  All this after not being able to get to sleep until after 4 am. ~_~;


UGH!!!!!!!!

I gave in to my cravings today and ate too much. :(  I'm never going to get to my goal weight or my previous weight at this rate.  I really need to be more proactive with my health.  I keep telling myself I will and then I just don't. I suck! :(  I need to quit wanting the wrong kinds of food.  I have a lot of frozen fruit.  I need to start making smoothies.  I could substitute one of those when I want a snack or something bad for me.  I really need to do that.  I remember at one time, I saw a site that had 'premade' smoothie bags. You put your ingredients (that you use for a smoothie) in a freezer bag and then when you want a smoothie, you just toss the contents in the blender.  I need to do that!  I forget how much I love them.  I always have unsweetened almond milk in the house, so I have something to blend the fruit with.  I just need to get my butt to doing that.  If I do make a smoothie 'make ahead pack' I'll take pictures! :P

Today was stretch day on the calendar.  I love stretch day.  I still can't do a split.  I'm beginning to think I never will. :(  I just don't think my body is made to do it.  I can do Pigeon pose all damn day, but no splits.  Oh well, I'll keep trying!  


Yikes!

I did all my first of the month stuff today. I got a lot accomplished.  I got gas, groceries, essentials, and more.  I'm broke again. lol  Oh well.  I have all I need until next month.  I had a bad experience at the grocery store.  So much so I actually sent in a complaint!  I don't usually have a hard time at the store.  Today was different.  I had some coupons that the cashier wouldn't let me use.  I have the items, too.  I was so upset.  They were busy and I didn't want to hold the line up anymore so I let it go while there.  I was fuming all the way home.  I contacted Food Lion Corp and let them know what happened.  It was only $3, but I live on a very low income, so $3 is a lot of money to me!

Other that that, the other places I went to get my things went well.  I got some bottled water at Kmart.  They had the 24 packs for $1.99 each.  I got five of those.  That will get me through the month and probably a little longer than that.  I put gas in my car because it hadn't been acting up lately.  Guess what?  After I put the gas in, it started to act up again. ~_~;  I just can't win!


Well....

This has been a very frustrating day!  I had a major calamity.  I am sure I mentioned that there was a leak in one of the rooms of my house.  Well, when I got up this morning, the ceiling tiles finally gave way.  I just spent a long time trying to fix it.  First I sprayed some stuff on the ceiling (hoping it will help with the leak)  I put some cardboard and styrofoam in there and then secured it.  I covered all that with some Contact paper.  It doesn't look great, but it's a a good temporary fix.  Plus, it looks a heck of a lot better than that hole!

Other than that, I didn't do a lot.  I did my workouts, I went to the park to Pokemon Go.  I also was able to get some Chinese for dinner!  My friend felt bad for the day I'd been having and gave me enough money to get some Chinese.  I got some homestyle bean curd.  So good!  It helped make up for all the frustations a bit.  Now I'm going to relax for a bit.  I have a killer headache from the stuff I sprayed.  Ugh!


Car troubles on a Sunday....

Well, technically I've been having car troubles for over two years now.  They are just worse today.  I had to run to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I needed.  It took awhile, but I finally got my car to start.  It's acting up worse than usual, so it didn't want to drive down to the grocery store. I got it there, though.  I debated on leaving it running, but I was afraid it would overheat. I turned it off and went in and got my groceries.  In line, I was freaking out beaause my keys weren't in my purse.  I thought I was going to have to call a friend to come get me, carry me home to get my spare keys and come back.  Scratch that.  The spare key was in my car as I had thought about leaving it running!  Luckily for me, I put my keys in the hand basket I was using so I was able to check out and got out to my car with no issues.  It started up fine and I was able to get home with no issues.  I was so happy!  I need to sit down and write pen pal lettters as I'm behind because of my beach trip.  I hope to get those done today and somehow get to the post office tomorrow to mail them and check my box for any new ones.  I might type up this batch.  I hate to send typed letters, but sometimes it's the easiest when I'm so behind!  Plus, I want to get them done so I can get them out. :)

OH! I have been using my Macbook since the beach trip and I noticed that my zero key doesn't work. Luckily there is a work around.  I can pull up an on screen keyboard and get it that way. Thank you Google! :D 

One more thing.  Did I mention that I got BACON at the store? I love me some bacon.  Bacon is life, bacon is good. lol


Good things!

It has been a really long day and I'm about to get on my bed and relax for the rest of the evening.  Before I do, I wanted to do a post.  I had a checkup today at the doctor.  My appointment was at 1 pm, but I didn't actually see her until 2:15!  I was annoyed that I had to wait so long, but I got through and came home.  I did my workouts and then ate lunch.  I haven't done a lot since then.  I have done more work on my Moleskine bujo!  I added some new pages.  Also, I went in and took out some of the printables an re-did them with pen!  I will take a new video soon of the update.  So far I'm loving it.  I can't wait to move into it.   I have two more two page spreads that I want to do.  I am not sure what I'll use them for.  Probably collections.  I just have to decide what!  I am going to look at some bujo inspiration sites while relaxing on the bed.  I'm hoping to find something cool.  I have some idea, but I'm not sure exactly how I want to use them.  I will do an updated video and share it soon!


Long day!

Good grief! It has been a really long day!  Last night I bought some room darkening blinds.  I put them up and then noticed when I got up today that they didn't really block that much light.  I didn't see keeping them, so after  breakfast, I headed out and returned them.  I put the old ones back up.  

After that, I went to Office Max to look at the Tul notebooks.  I know some people use them for bullet journaling.  I didn't really care for them, but I did find a cute little plastic envelope that was teal and had polka dots.  I got that and then headed out.  After leaving there, I went to the park for a bit to hit a few Pokestops.  I then headed home.  I did my stretches and then went to a friend's house.  I ended up going with them to pick up pizza.  I ate too much pizza!  I also rode with them later to Gamestop and then to Starbucks.  Yes, I got a Cascara latte. :P  I stayed at their house a bit after we got back and then I headed home.  I have been working at my desk ever since..... Oh wait!  I did run back out in my own car to Taco bell and got some bean burritos.  

I am now ready to get in my bed and relax until bedtime.  I still have to take a picture for Insta for the #stretchrevolution project I'm doing.  I'll get that picture taken and then crash on my bed to post to Insta.  Then I'm just going to relax.  I way over ate today and I'm feeling it. BLEAH!


Sleep, it alludes me!

This is day three of waking up way too early!  Each day this happens, I have just gotten up and gone on a earlier walk. It's a little bit cooler, but not too much.  Today, I used Pokemon Go during the walk.  I used it for most of the walk.  My battery was at 22% when I got home. LOL!  It's okay, I charged it while doing my workouts and relaxing.  I was able to hatch several eggs and picked up some 'new' Pokemon along with some extra of others.  I also tried to hit all the Pokestops along my walk.  It was fun!  I have gotten where walking was a chore.  I do it because I want to continue to be fit, but it's such a pain sometimes.  Playing Pokemon Go while I walk makes it more fun.  I don't want to skip a walk. I want to go and play! :)  

I am hoping to get back to my regular sleep schedule.  I'm going to try to go out and walk earlier.  My normal routine is to get up, check out things on my phone for a while, get up, eat, and watch a couple of episodes of Judge Judy and then head out for my walk.  I may just get up, relax a bit and then eat and go.  This way I will get done in time to do my workouts before lunch.  I also won't have to worry about hurrying if I feel like I'm getting behind.  It will give me extra time.  This is important as it's so darn hot!  Hopefully I will sleep right through tonight and not wake up until the silent alarm on my Fitbit goes off!  Wish me luck.
