Double Standard?

I couldn't resist taking a picture of and posting this. This is my boss' trash can in his otherwise neat office. Lovely no?

This is the same guy who has told my other boss to tell me and my co-workers that our areas look cluttered and that we may not put Walmart bags in the refrigerator because it doesn't look good.

Hmmm....kinda strange, don't you think?

And yes, it always looks like this!

Lets just hope my boss doesn't look at my blog :) I really do get along with my bosses for the most part...but I thought this was just begging for a post. :)

In other news...lets see. I haven't posted for a few days cause I've been SICK AS A DOG. It started with what seemed to be allergies - watering eyes and that rubber band, tight feeling around my temples along with stuffed up nose. Well, starting about Tuesday night, it just got worse and worse. I woke up Wednesday miserable. Had to go to work because we are under the gun to get stuff done for our pending trip to Washington DC. Went home and went to bed at 6:30 p.m. WEd night. Felt horrible - mentally and physically. After a restless night of sleep, I decided to go to the doctor on Thursday. Bad sinus infection. Now I'm taking four different kinds of medication and trying to recover. Went to work Thursday and today, and I must say, I am feeling a bit better today, though not nearly well.

I toyed with going out of town this weekend to visit some friends, because I HATE being home with nothing to do over a Holiday weekend. It somehow makes me feel extremelly lonely for some reason. Silly I know because for one thing, I really don't feel that great and I need to rest, second, I have a bunch of stuff to do around here before I leave on my trip and this weekend is my only chance to do that and third it is kind of silly to go somewhere just because I don't want to be home "with nothing to do." So, I've elected to stay here and try to fully recuperate from my sickness as well as cleaning the house and maybe throwing a few "fun" things in like going to a movie or possibly going fishing with my dad on Monday (that depends on how I'm feeling and if I get my packing and stuff done before then...)

I'm also feeling a bit melancholy because remember the nice guy who I had gone out with a few times (who was nice enough to fix my garbage disposal, etc.)? Well, he has now decided he wants to date someone else. Found that out earlier this week and it came as quite a shocker. It literally happened overnight. Unfortunately, that is the breaks in dating isn't it? You win some, you lose some, etc. It just tends to throw me for a loop because I guess I always have such high hopes and time after time, it just doesn't work out for one reason or another. I'm fine, but just quite a bit disapointed that it didn't work out. It wasn't anything I could have prevented but still, it hurts nonetheless. One day you are talking to someone almost 24/7 and the next, they are out of your life. And this hit about the same day as my sickness did so it was a double whammy.

Kind of ironic/funny/not so funny - we had talked about being able to have a date this Friday night without kiddos - maybe finding someone for Brandon to spend the night we could have a real "date night" sans kids. Then, tonight, I get a call from his buddy's mom asking if he can come over and hang out and spend the night. So...Brandon is at his buddy's house and I am here all alone - with no date. Kind of like the "all dressed up, but nowhere to go" kind of thing. Oh well, its not like I feel that great anyway, but it is just the timing - tends to sorta suck! So, I thought I'd update the blog and try to get a few things done around here. Figured I'd go to bed early too, but I guess that isn't happening.

Tomorrow I'm attending the funeral of a good friend of mine's brother. He passed away a couple of days ago from cancer. Really sad. I'm reminded that I really need to try to look at the positives and the good things in my life - that life is too short to dwell on the little negatives and disapointments. Now if only I can remember that for more than 10 minutes! That is the challenge.

I hope to update my blog again soon, but I'll be leaving for Washington DC in a few days and will be gone for a few days so I'll update when I can. Have a great weekend everyone.

That bin is something else!! :) Wow!

I'm sorry to hear about the guy. I've had that happen to me before where I didn't see it coming. :(

Sorry to hear about 'guy'. I know what you mean about holiday weekends. I hated being at home during the holidays- made me so homesick.

Make the best of your time this weekend and get some rest before your trip

Robyn said...

I'm sorry you're feeling so sick, and that the relationship didn't work out :(
I hope your weekend has been refreshing and relaxing and that you're feeling MUCH better now.
Ewww to that bin!

I am so bummed that you are hurting and sick! I am adding "Send Dana a Godly HunkaSpunk to the prayer list, Oakalydoke? :) You deserve such a fantastic man.

Michelle said...

that is a messy trash can! Sorry to hear the guy you were going out with now wants to date someone else. It sounds like you were really enjoying your time with him. His loss now though! I hope you are feeling better!

HILARIOUS about the boss. Not fun about the sickness. I'm right there with you. I have horrible allergies that I am afraid are on their way to becoming a killer sinus infection!
