I hope y’all had a great day today! WOW, I can not believe it is ONLY Tuesday. Just think, we are pretty much half way through the week! I am very excited for this weekend for several reasons. One reason is easy to figure out, I don’t have to work the weekend and I can sleep in! Another reason is, I am getting my nails and toes done. I love having my nails and does done! It is so incredibly relaxing and makes me feel so good!!!
Today, even though I was still in a lot of pain, I worked almost 9 hours! My goodness, it was so difficult getting through the day, because all I really wanted to do at about 11 am was lay down, considering that actually takes some of pressure off my back. In all honesty, my pain level right now in my back, legs and shoulder is above a 10. But, at least I made it through an entire day without having to cut my day short, which I consider a success! I am so thankful to be home now with the ability to rest with my wonderful husband and sweet cats. One of the best parts of my day is, coming home to be greeted by both of my cats at the door and changing into my comfortable clothes!
I am very excited that my manager approved my PTO request for next Friday! I am going to be spending the day with my mother to celebrate my birthday, which is next Saturday. My mother and I will have a nice time going out to lunch and maybe going to the mall. Next weekend is an exciting time for me and my husband. My birthday being Saturday, September 30th and Sunday October 1st, being mine and Jon’s 6th wedding anniversary! October 1st is also the anniversary of 7 years since Jon proposed to me on stage with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. It should be a great weekend and I can not wait! It is hard to believe that it has been 6 years already. My wedding day was the most relaxed that I have ever been. I knew I was marrying the love of my life and soul mate. For someone who is always stressed, my wedding day when most brides are a little on the stressed side, I was very relaxed. I was a little emotional because my Grandfather could not be there and my father choose not to be there, but everyone else that matters to me was there supporting us!
I am very hopeful that by making it through an entire day at work, maybe my pain will start getting better. I think I have been suffering for long enough and it is time for it to start decreasing. Even though it was hard to get through the day, I did it! Maybe tomorrow will be easier, but we will see. I have been pretty frustrated because it doesn’t seem like people really understand and probably think I am blowing things out of proportion. One of my co-workers asked me today if I was feeling better. When I started to explain how I was feeling, they changed the subject. I mean, why ask if you don’t really care to hear the answer? Others that claim to be a friend, didn’t even bother asking. But truth is, none of that really matters. I know that I have the love and support of my husband!
I hope y’all have a great evening and a fantastic Wednesday! Tomorrow, when you are ready for the day to be over and the clock is not moving fast enough, think positive, it is almost the weekend! Sometimes finding the positive in every situation will make you feel better. Earlier today, my boss was talking about how much extra work we have and will continue to have because of the Hurricanes and I said, “Well at least we are not dealing with the tragedies the victims are dealing with.” all he could say was “I guess that is true.” Turing negative to positive is a good thing to be able to do! Next time someone says something truly negative to you, try flipping things around and saying something positive to them and see what their response is!
