Just realized I’ve completely fallen off the map with the no fail fall. I haven’t unplugged and I haven’t scrubbed. I did do these before and during my moms visit and on my last extra day off, Friday.
I have made some other progress professionally though and feel positive about that. I’m making more of an effort in department friendships and permanency. A job came up in a dept I love but I opted out and have moved to my permanent team in my current dept. Anyways A++ regardless.
The moment you love, you are.
Every weekend should be a long weekend
If only I could find a .8 position and only work 4 days a week, life would be so much easier. Having Friday off was just what I needed. The hubby wasn’t home and I could neurotically clean the place and catch up with all the laundry without hearing him whine about having to do laundry (oh woe is him). I also did a bunch of shopping and a yoga class so I didn’t feel too bad about cleaning.
Sat/Sun has been a laze fest but yesterday I whipped up a batch of oatmeal pecan cookies and today I am baking up half, and freezing the rest. I also took the pork roast out of the freezer last night and this morning I threw it in some mexican chili marinade and later I am going to throw it in the slow cooker for tomorrow nights dinner (it’s easier to pull apart when it is cold).
Even though I said I wasn’t going to Black Friday…
I ended up buying my sister (who’s expecting) some cutesy little girl baby items, a workout outfit from the gap, 2 scarves (although, to be fair, one was an exchange for one I bought a few weeks ago) and some cheap jeans from old navy. And my Mia 2 came in the mail. I only spent $200 which all in all is pretty good considering. (…what happened to saving???)
I don’t feel guilty about spending, it was my payday, but the shopping has ignited my …must…buy…everything endorphins. I now have a list long of things I want…
Oh and I may or may not have just ordered a pair of boots online…
This morning I slept in (for me) and now I’m up and trying to get atter. I took today off of work because a friend and I were going to go crazy with the Black Friday shopping across the border. We both came to our senses and now I am off work with no plans, amazing.
Speaking of work, yesterday was the last day I will be at my current desk alone. I have been covering someone’s mat leave and then when that’s over I was awarded a permanent position at someone else’s desk to transition to when the mat leave was over, and glorious day, here it is! The girl I was covering comes back Monday and we’ll be doing some hand off stuff and then I go to my new team/desk and do hand off with the coverage that has been there. I’m pretty excited since it feels like a new job without having to go anywhere. There were moments I felt it would never come, and I didn’t exactly get a warm welcome when I first started, but things are okay now, but there is one personality that I will def be happy I am no longer dealing with!
I think Canada is starting to copy with the sales, so I’m going to finish my coffee and see what kind of trouble I can get into.
