I'm so ready for this week to end and it's only going to be a three day work week. My husband's 50th anniversary party is this Saturday. I don't know if I've talked about it but it's been driving me crazy on what to do for him, since I want it to be something he wants, too. My first thought was renting a house in the Shenandoah for the weekend for family and friends. Thankfully, we didn't do that because we'd probably be in two feet of wet snow, no electricity. We decided to go w/ a Chinese banquet. What's been bothering me, and maybe you all can add some perspective, is that I really try hard to do what he would like. It takes a lot of time and effort because he has no idea or is indecisive. But, when it comes to my things, he just haphazardly throws things together, most often things I have no interest in (Let's take mom to the air and space museum...) and buys me things I've said repeatedly I don't want. It's become a running joke that I know I'm going to get what I've just said I don't want ("I don't want the garmin, I think it's too clunky" and that's what I get). Most recently for our anniversary he gave me jewelry...again. I've told him repeatedly I don't wear jewelry, but he doesn't seem to care/listen. Ugh. Maybe I just needed to vent because I have thousands of dollars worth of junk I've never used. What do I do with a $150 book on the history of calligraphy??? So, this banquet is fine, it'll cost a lot but it's his 50th and it's what he wants. I just know when mine comes around, I'll get something like a golf outing. And, yes, I've tried lists. It doesn't work. I gave him a list of purses I wanted from a certain store. He went to the store, ignored the list and bought me something else, that doesn't work well for me. Am I being ungrateful?
Anyway, that aside, I'm teaching step this morning. I've choreographed a conditioning routine to Gangnam Style for the dance girls to do for parents observation week next month. No jazz class and I'm thankful because I need a break. Oh, and I have one client I have to travel for an hour for. I'm in a whining mood because the boss called me into a meeting w/ this new client and told me she wanted me to do one session a week for the next month w/ her on functional exercises. Then it comes up that it's far away. I can't back out at that point, not in front of the client. Ugh, so I'm doing this for a month. My boss has to travel even farther to take her but that's her choice to accept her as a client. I think they could hire a trainer to do something that far away. I'm obviously just in a pissy mood.
