relieved it's Friday
Fri, 11-15-2013 - 8:05am

I am so relieved that this week is almost over!  Although I am proud of myself for talking to my manager, I still find him to be arrogant and annoying.  However, I also believe that arrogance is a deep seeded need to be appreciated...or is it?!  Whatever.  Work today, physical therapy and yoga, and, then, dh's holiday party with whirlyball.  It should be an interesting evening.  Karlwild you are like me, having the place clean is what YOU will notice, and it will allow YOU to relax lthough your event.  Jean, I find that I drink less, tooit now, but it is more because it makes me toured.  :(. GR, there are days when I think we should have more rentals, and then "retire" from the corporate world.  In five years, we hope that our children will be out of college so that we can really think areality at reality!  SJ, enjoy FL!  That sounds vunderbaar about now when there is frost on the ground!

have a great weekend, everyone!

FSN, one of my "therapy tricks" for dealing with obnoxious people is reminding myself that they developed that trait for a reason - it has helped them "survive" in some way.  It doesn't fix the problem obviously but it makes me less frustrated and I have more sympathy for the person.  

I'm glad it's Friday too.  The birthday party was a lot of fun last night.  I didn't sleep as much as I would have liked but that's alright. I've got a client this morning and will be workin on freelance stuff.  I'm sore from yesterday's workout so I'll be doing just cardio today.

Fresh, you are right, I clean for me. Now that I am busier, however, I have found that I can now relax in far more mess than I used to be able to. lol And good for you for talking to your manager. Where you able to say everything you wanted to?

I had a bad run this morning. I was cold (35) but not like the last few days. I went out today thinking it would be an easier run but it wasn't. A mile and half in I couldn't believe how fatigued I felt. I felt very tired and heavy and I could not get into a comfortable pace. By mile 3 I was breathing much harder than I should have been. At mile 4 I stopped and walked home the remaining 1.5 miles. Ugg. I think maybe I need to get a few extra calories in. 

I have an electrician coming tomorrow to install track lighting and to change out my outdoor lights and a light in my hallway. Other than that I am just going to work on the house and try to get in a long run this weekend before the storms hit (possible severe weather).

Good for you for talking to your manager!  I find that when you call people on their behavior, they realize your onto them (they can't bury their heads in the sand).  

I had a good day so far, some clients, parkour class and am going to dog lessons.  Today's is complimentary but I was talking to a friend yesterday and it turns out she knows a ton about dogs, does rescues, is certified as vets assistant and she said she'd be happy to work with us.  She said she wouldnt' charge us but I'd still want to pay her.
