The 4-1-1

What I've been doing lately... working...weight lifting...yoga... meditation...self care.   What I plan to do after tax season is over... all of the above... plus, get a tan.... go outside more and explore nature... meet with friends more often...

Sooo close!

It's Thursday... after this week I only have 2 more weeks of tax season. Boy am I ready! lol. It has felt like I hardly have any time to do more than my basic needs. Keep the house chores up minimally, do my exercising (weight lifting, yoga and...

Tuesday Tuesday

No, not Monday Monday... lol ;)   Pretty much no one is in the office right now... and the phones have been quiet. It's nice. :) It's only Tuesday but man does it feel like Thursday. Every week just seems to bleed into the next with short breaks...

Humans yes, Animals not as much...

What is it about men and cheating? Like seriously... can you not think with your brain when it comes to a pretty girl? What is it about marriage that you cannot take seriously? This is not happening to me personally, but it is happening to someone I...

Busy times

During really busy times in life, at work I find myself seeing the time fly by and wondering what I really did for me.   I work in a tax office... so during tax season I'm doing bookkeeping, payroll and tax returns. I stay later because there's...

Life Struggles

When you do something bad that hurts someone without meaning to, is it hard for you to think you're a good person in that moment? Even if you've done countless kind things and you always intend to be a nice person or treat people fairly?   ...

Trusting People

It's just too hard, I give up... why can't people just be honest? Especially when you know something is true in  your gut and that person tells you it's not, but then later you apologize for how you acted and they tell you what you believed was...

Bad Dreams

Every once in a while I have bad dreams about my boyfriend cheating on me... this is the first boyfriend I've really had this issue with periodically. I'm sure it stems from the fact that he is flirty, he was a date-a-holic before me and he's been...

New Year, New Me! (hold the applause please) ;P

Ok ok, I've been working on myself for probably most of my life and more intensely as a person (physically, mentally, spiritually) for about 8 years. This year I started yoga (finally), meditation, weightlifting... it's been quite a transformation for...

Difficulty & Love

Relationships... especially healthy ones.. are so damn difficult. You have to always be compassionate, empathetic, selfless, loving, caring, understanding, open, honest... the list goes on...if you awnt it to work, of course.   Don't get me...

Christmas is coming!

It seems like every year I'm never "fully" prepared for Christmas.  One of these years I wanna be done with my shopping before the middle of December.  I want to have my plan for what I'm making/baking to take to my family's house or bringing to work....

Happy Friday!

It's been pretty slow here at work this past week... luckily, today my boss is off, one of my coworkers is off and the other one leaves @ 2pm everyday. I asked my boss since it was slow if I could leave early and he said yes... so I might just leave...

Ramblings on a Monday morning

My boyfriend and I were talking yesterday morning and he mentioned a conversation he had with his friend who is also dating someone but they are not yet exclusive yet.  He was talking about how dating women (without being in a relationship) is akin to...

Birthday Dinner night

My birthday is on Thanksgiving. I have two friends that have early November birthdays (Nov 7 and Nov 11) and so since I assumed they would want to celebrate my birthday as well as theirs I set a Birthday dinner (for me) with girls only and sent...

Living for Happiness -- Ponderings

Over the past 6 years I've read books on happiness. How to be happy, how to change your brain and your thinking to be happier, how to focus on the positive that life gives you... for years I struggled with negative thought patterns (still do on a lot...

I got a case of the Mondays...

I haven't wanted to be at work since the moment I walked in... I had stuff to do for about 2-3 hours this morning and I was worried I'd run out... luckily a client sent me their stuff early so it's been keeping me busy. It's weird because normally I...

The end of the year..

I can't believe how October just flew right by... I was sort of bummed we didn't dress up for Halloween. I told my boyfriend that next year it's a must. We just had so much going on this year. My step sister had her wedding on saturday anyway, so by...

Weekend here I come!

Hi again everybody! So last night I got in an argument with my boyfriend. He's still friends with a woman he dated (and had a healthy relationship with) on facebook and yeah of course it bugs me but I'm NOT going to be that girlfriend. He needs to...

Hump day

It's Wednesday. I'm working. My coworker and I are planning a trip for next June to go see my friend in Boston (I've known her for almost 4 years and haven't met her irl). My old coworker came by for lunch to say hi and my boss is ALWAYS interested in...

Monterey

My boyfriend and I went to Monterey this last weekend for his birthday... I thought it was so beautiful driving along the 17 mile drive road that I told him how nice it would be for us to live there...   The next day I was looking up jobs just...

Back from vacation

I left on vacation day before yesterday to Monterey, CA. It was my boyfriend's birthday last wednesday so we planned to go to Monterey and go to the Aquarium.  We were supposed to leave about 9am, but I was running a bit behind so I got there around...

My friday

I paid for a trip for my boyfriend and I to go to Monterey together for his birthday. We're going to the aquarium because that's what he wanted to do. I was thinking he might want to do something else like an amusement park or something, but I think...

My boyfriend's back... well he will be.

He's flying in tonight and he said he's not gonna be too tired to see me, but I told him I'm not holding my breath. I'm dropping off his garage clicker (since he doesn't have house keys lol) and leaving it for him until he comes back which is a couple...
