I have a (wonderful) friend Lauren, she came to visit this weekend bringing along her super awesome boyfriend Gene. We were in the car when she mentioned she hadn’t posted her “What I like Wednesdays” in a week or two. It became a topic and we all decided she should be more realistic and do a “What I don’t like Mondays” both EverSoLightly and I agreed we would start it as well, so she wasn’t alone!
So here is my first “What I don’t like Monday”
Goodbyes. In the past week and a half I’ve had to say goodbye to a lot of people, things, and even for almost 3 weeks, my health! I do not like goodbyes, I didn’t like having to say good bye to my best buddies Drew, Kieran, and Sarah and I didn’t like saying goodbye to my boss when they left town for a month. I had to say goodbye to Lauren and Gene this weekend when they left for Ellensburg, and I had to say goodbye to my family when they headed back home. So to go along with my lack of love for Mondays, I also don’t like goodbyes. They leave me feeling bored, lonely, and they make me come back to the realization that vacations and good times don’t last forever! Enjoy them while you can!
I feel like all I do is work work work work work, and before anyone comments about that being life as an adult or anything remotely along those lines, I know. That doesn’t change how I feel though. Working 12 hour shifts, followed by 10 hour shifts = not fun. Yesterday I worked from 8:30 to 7:30, Today 8:30 – 8:30 tomorrow 8:30 – 7:30. I feel like I don’t ever get to go on a real vacation. Yes, last weekend we went to Oregon, to say goodbye to Ellee May ( 😦 I’m still not ready to let go of her.) and to see family of course. But that’s not a real vacation. Not a real break. I doubt one will happen anytime soon. Especially once school starts back up. I LOVE my job, I love just about everything dealing with what I do, but that doesn’t change how I feel. sometimes I feel over-worked, and stressed. This week is one of those weeks. little to no breaks or days off, and the time I do have off theres no one to hang out with or do anything with 😦
I’ll get over it. I always do.
P.S. Title = a Quote from my youngest nephew last weekend at a basketball game hahahaha oh man. Oh also, that same little boy (he’s not so little now though) took this photo!
EDIT: After posting this entry, wordpress sent me the following video:
It was a nice surprise!
That even if this means I can’t do anything else exciting this year, I want to go to the beach with my brother and his wonderful mateys, our Mom, and EverSoLightly (wordpress won’t let me link to his blog right now). After watching
, and looking at photos from the time we went for my 21st birthday makes me want to re-live the amazing time we had.
I truly am blessed to have them in my life, I love my family so much and am so proud of how far we all have come over the past years. Watching the end of that video “I love you, C…” “You too!” “I love you, C” “You too” I love you, Collin” “You too.” Reminded me of our most recent visit to see them, we walked in the door and the first person to greet us was Q… then right as G was about to hug me C pushed his way in and tackled me. So the first thing I said “You love me” his response? “nope!” Later that day I went into the younger boys’ room and saw this
on C’s desk. He walked in right as I was looking at the photo smiled at me and I said “SEE! YOU DO LOVE ME! You have a photo of us on your desk!” his response? “No, I just don’t get to see you that often…” HA kid! I knew it! It’s okay – your secret is safe with me 🙂
