The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
News at Home:An Emotional Week
This week had lots of highs and lows for me. Some of you may remember that I had a very close friend pass away suddenly last December, leaving behind an 8 month daughter (now 1) and 5 year old son (now 6). Well Wednesday should have been her 32nd birthday. I miss her all the time, but Wednesday it was so pronounced. I didn’t sleep well, as if my body knew I was supposed to send her that birthday text (I was ALWAYS the first one to roll her happy birthday because I sent a text at midnight). I just missed her all day.
And it was like the universe conspired to make Wednesday very confusing, emotionally, for me. I got two items in the mail that I was so excited to FINALLY receive but that would have made Stephanie so happy. Not being able to share with her definitely stripped some of the joy.
I received my Masters degree on Wednesday, after for longest battle in history for a Masters (we should name the battle it was so long). Stephanie was one of the people who insisted I not give up the fight to get what I’d earned. She would have need through the moon.
I also received my new social security card with my married name on Wednesday . Again, Stephanie wanted me and Kiko to get married so badly. I never thought we’d do it (I mean after 11 years why would we, right?) . She would have need so happy. She also would have a checklist ready for me of all the places I need to change my name now. I could have complained about what a colossal pain in the ass this is . We would have had a great laugh.
As much as I missed her this week, it was still a good week. We had our fall festival Friday after school -which meant I was at work from 7:30-8:30. I was unhappy about that until the festival got started. Gah! I LOVE my school. This event ended up being so much fun to work and watch the families having a good time with their kids, who came on costumes and played games. Nothing like this happened at my old school. I’m so lucky 🙂
My week ended with a Halloween party last night at Frank’s mom’s house. I wore my fairy costume that my mom made and I’ll be wearing to school tomorrow. I don’t have a picture yet, but it’s fairy (hehe ) awesome. My mom also made Buffy a costume from my scraps. Isn’t she cute ?
She actually is comfortable in it and I had to take a toy away to get this picture . Hence the look 🙂
Well blog Ahead ends tomorrow and I’m ten posts ahead. Not my goal of a whole month, but it’s something. I do plan to blog a lot today, so who knows. I might pull it off yet.
I had an okay week, food wise. I did a little more drinking and chocolate eating than normal -I think that was the emotions of the week getting me. And last night I ate like crap at the party. It was a party after all!
Gym was a no-go. I had a man meetings after work this week . I’m sure that didn’t help my emotional state at all. Looking forward to getting back next week.
