What's going on with you guys this weekend? Anything relaxing? Anything that is making you anxious/panicky?
We were supposed to go away overnight to a water park but the weather where it is located is being forecasted as storms and a 40% chance of rain. Boo. So we'll be staying home. We may hit up the local amusement park and/or the outlets.
Of course it makes me anxious to go to the outlets. I feel like everyone is staring at me. And for good reason—when I was pregnant with my DD, I had gone into Jockey to get some underwear. I wanted regular underwear, just bigger. Mind you I was maybe 4 months pregnant. I was having a horrid time with acne (from the hormones) and it was bad and I was uber self-conscious about it. Well anyway, the woman at the register said to me, "Do you know what you're having?" and I said, "No, not yet." and she said, "Well you're having a girl. Do you know how I know?" and I said, "No, how?" and she said, "Because they say girls steal their mother's beauty and I see you have a lot of acne."
Yep. Left sobbing. And infuriated. But with the knowledge that my anxiety is not something that happens because I'm imagining these thoughts in my head. People ARE looking at me and judging me. She just proved it.
Anyway, lol, I hope your weekend is full of calm fun!
