I have a good opportunity today to get out of this living situation and hopefully actually start getting my life back on track. I need this so desperately I'm not considering another option atthis point. All fingers are crossed and I'm saying a few prayers I hope Goddess hears.
Just emailed my bosses my resignation letter and handing in a hard copy tomorrow...I'm scared it's going to be awkward...
I really want to know HOW this dude drives at all.
I'm a little late lol, but I totally get that OP, Fran! I just want to be helpful and to the point, not get in the way or say something intrustive/awkward/rude... but when you see some one on a daily basis it's natural to want to be friends. Some people are really good at bridging that gap. I'm not. At all. D: Same with training people's dogs. I want to have a respectful trainer/client relationship, how do I do that if we share personal non-dog stuff about our lives?
Speaking of jobs... my BFF runs her own dog training/walking business. She just bought a new house with acreage for daycare and I've been going over there a couple days a week to watch the dogs for 5 hours while she picks up, drops off and does outings. I really like it but it literally hurts my heart to leave my baby. I have noooo idea how I'm going to start working part time much less full time. I don't know how working moms do it.
About moving. There are two things I have learned, two mistakes I made while moving that I WILL NOT MAKE this time.
Leaving either Zander or my Keurig in the hands of other people. I will not trust. I will not rest. These things will be in my car WITH ME when I move. Period.
"Oh, did you want me to help you move the Keurig? Doesn't look like you have much room in your car, I could put it in mine."
Eggs in coffee. Marks Daily Apple suggest I put EGGS in my COFFEE.
It sounded so ridiculous I had to try it.
And it's actually ridiculously good.
WTF MIND BLOWN.
With his feet ? I wonder how safe it is? I guess pretty safe if he still has his license?
Yes, there are modifications for them to drive with their feet. We had a motivational speaker come into my highschool years ago and he had no arms and basically showed us how he does day to day tasks like drinking his morning coffee, driving and even playing the drums.
This isn't a vent or really anything it's just weighing on my mind. I feel silly because its a good friend of one of my good friends so its not like ts even really to do with me but its just sad and makes me wonder what went so wrong.
My friend's best friend got married in the spring. My friend was in the wedding as a bridesmaid. All good. The newly married girl discovered she was pregnant and then a week later her husband committed suicide.
I just....don't even know what to say. I just can't even comprehend.
Wow... OMG. That is so sad. =<
I know, it's been upsetting me all day to even think about. The whole thing is just beyond my ability to understand. I can't even imagine what she's going through.
Chris and I are in this limbo stage. We're not together. But we still, for the most part, act like a couple. Its not freaking me out now, but I don't know how much longer that will last. I don't think either of us know what we want. I never saw myself as a friend's with benefits kind of girl. I'm not sure what to think of myself. Or my situation. Meh.
So I've been seeing this guy, it's fun, it's all good... But I'm super uncomfortable with him always paying. Even though he insists. I dunno. It makes me feel really bad. We went to a very trendy and pretty expensive bar last night and I just... feel bad that he paid for the whole thing. :/
I don't think it's strange that you're uncomfortable with it. I'm the same way, it took my boyfriend a little while to get use to it though as he grew up in a traditional "guy pays for everything on dates" type place. If it were me, I'd say next time just tell the guy that you really want to pay for the date this time, or if you are the one to decide were to go then it might be easier for you to pay without issues.
I totally muscled in ahead of my now DH on our first date so I could pay for myself (our first date was at a sandwich shop). LOL Totally caught him off guard. I think it's worth suggesting a date and making clear you'll pay ahead of time - so many guys have been taught to always pay that they do it without a thought.
Thanks for the ideas, guys. Glad it's not just me. LOL
I have to assist with an orthopedic surgery tomorrow, which I've never done before and I'm just kind of like.... gah. There is really nothing I dislike more than not knowing what I'm doing. I'm not necessarily nervous about it, I'm just not looking forward to it lol. Just hope the surgeon is cool about guiding me and that I don't feel too stupid!
I hate orthopedic surgeries. I always try to trade off if one falls on my surgery day.
Thankfully it went fine! But I don't want to do another one any time soon lol. Too much involved.
