Today has been such a weird day.
It started with my roommates cats frolicking around the house around 4/5am and knocking over our hallway mirror. Luckily it didn’t break, so I thought I’d have some good luck today.
Not so much.
I ran 4 miles this morning, but unfortunately, I felt a major tingling and painful sensation in my right shoulder-blade, again. I slathered on some Tiger Balm, aka my perfume of the day, and got on with my morning.
I was surprised when I saw that my sidekick Jen coworker was already at work. So early. Turns out, she gave her notice. I am about to cry. Monday will be my 1 year with the firm and of knowing Jen, and I literally do not know what I will do without her. I always said if she leaves, I’m leaving. Thankfully she’s only moving a building over, and I will still see her for our workout classes, but being able to plop myself in her office and talk relationships and dating woes will no longer be happening.. except via email and texting.
A lot of stress has been put upon me now, as I have to decide very very soon if I want to take her position or stay in the one I’m currently happy in. There are pros and cons to both, which I will have to weigh heavily this weekend.
In happier news, Lindsay and I were photographed running pretty. I feel like there is no such thing as running attractively, even though when a guy finds out I run, he thinks it’s so sexy. Knowing I run is sexy, watching me run isn’t.
So when I was emailed my race pictures from the professional photographer, I jumped in happiness when I saw that Lindsay and I got a keeper.
Yay for not having to submit a picture for “worst race photo ever” this year!
So Wednesday night when I played tennis with Jenny, she was telling me about this book that she is obsessed with. It’s called Get the Guy, and it’s by Matthew Hussey, who is the man behind the show, Ready for Love. Anyways, he’s supposed to be this genius with helping girls land a great guy. When Jenny told me the price for the book, I laughed and said hell no.
Then yesterday I spent my day watching his videos and reading interviews. Holy shazam. Man is a genius! After work, I headed to Barnes & Noble to get the book. What a disaster. The older lady helping me started judging me right when I told her the name of the book. She brought me to the “Sex” section and when we couldn’t find it, she forced me to continue looking and “wait there” while she checked another area. After feeling uncomfortable just standing among all the sex related books, I went to go find her. She eventually helped me locate it, and kept making snide remarks about understanding men. I thanked her, and as I walked away, she yelled, across the store, “good luck with the guys!” Thank you. Thank you.
Anyways, last night after buying the book, I ran home quickly to make dinner, which was shoved down my throat in a minute flat.
I then met Jenny at the tennis courts for another night of tennis. On my drive over, she mentioned there were cute tennis guys playing, and we decided that she had to start using some of the techniques she learned in the book so far.
Well, the girl got cute tennis player’s number, and now I’m a belieber.
Back to me. I need to go throw things around at the gym and clear my mind.
Aside from making a pros and cons list, how do you decide on a BIG decision?
