I woke up Saturday morning with a whole new attitude. My new Work Mantra is Show Up-Perform Tasks-Get Check. I am removing myself from all the drama.
Since I had the weekend off, I decided to focus on the things that are making me REALLY happy these days.
I made a big pot of meatballs and sauce and called Sorority Girl to come and spend the weekend. While she was here she painted my toenails, introduced me to The Real Housewives Of New Jersey (no comment) and we played with my new toy.
Mr Sunshine State got me an iPod! My FIRST iPod! A GREEN iPod!!!
Now my new green iPod has about 700 songs on it.
I did something I SWORE I would never do.
I found a friend or two from high school and one childhood buddy, two from my last Cape Cod job, 20 cousins and all my siblings. We started planning my Mom's 75th birthday party that will be later this summer.
I'm trying not to get addicted and I'm not invading my kid's, niece's and nephew's privacy.
I thoroughly enjoyed doing laundry. Our dryer has been on the fritz for months and last week it finally exploded and the motor died. I prayed to Jesus, Mary and Joseph and all the little saints and it worked.
Mr SS found a dryer on Craigslist for $75. We picked it up last Thursday and I can almost see the laundry room floor this morning.
My weekend also included some happiness that involved baking a Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake, steamed edamame sprinkled with Kosher salt and a bottle of Amaretto.
Back to work tonight. Breathe. Just Breathe.
