Thank Goodness It's Monday...Seriously!

     


Good Morning, Shopaholics! Welcome to Monday! Never thought I'd be so happy to see the beginning of a new week! 


You guys remember that the DH is traveling a lot now, right? Well he has been gone for almost two weeks now. The first week was actually ok - I had lots of projects, etc keeping me busy and the time flew by. Last week though...that was a different story.


If it were possible for something to break, screw up, or for me to just need someone to talk to - it all happened last week. I was beginning to feel like the universe had it out for me. 


Last Tuesday, the car would.not.start. Naturally, the DH is in our second car (my backup), so I was stuck. Thank goodness my sister and her boys came down to help me. Of course it happened on a day when I had a ton of errands to run and lots of business to handle so I was really in a bind. 


A few days before the car episode, my laptop died. My entire life is on that machine. So many photos, documents, etc that I get dizzy thinking about it. I had to work from a dinosaur desktop computer for several days, until I could get over to Mobile (the closest Best Buy is one hour away) and buy a new laptop. I still have to take the old laptop and the new laptop to my computer guru to see what information he can actually recover. That should be lots of fun. 


Two other absolutely awful things happened, that involve friends of mine, but are just too personal to blog about. But let's just say I have been extremely troubled by this series of events for well over a week. Without the DH around to talk things over, it's been very rough. 


I've been so out of sorts, that I haven't exercised in over a week. Ask me how I feel right now. "Crappy" pretty much sums it up. Back on the wagon today, as I need the stress reduction and I already feel bloated again. All that after eight days. Imagine. I bet I gained 2-3 pounds this week, but I will never know for sure because I don't have the guts to get on the scales. 


So if you are dreading today, because it's a Monday after all, just think "it can always be worse". I, for one, am happy to close the book on last week and start over. 


The DH is *hopefully* returning home on Thursday or Friday for a long 4th of July weekend! I sure hope so! If he doesn't, I'll be talking to myself soon...


Have a Marvelous Monday!

  1. That's the kind of week you just have to forget about and say "NEXT!". My diet was a complete fail last week too but I'm back on wagon today. That's all you can do. You were doing so great don't let this get you down Lori.

    What is your husband doing that is taking him away for such long periods? I'm sure it gets so boring- fun for a day or two but that's it. Hang in there!
