Happy Friday! I am sitting here fighting a terrible hangover. I wish I could say I was out last night having a great time and may have had a little too much to drink. Sadly, I was at home reading the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire. I had to take benadryl late last night because I started breaking out in hives (I blame the stress of the books LOL). Benadryl gives me terrible hangovers the next morning. But I guess its better than if I had left it fester. (I occasionally break out in hives for whatever reason. No one can give me a cause. They can be mild or really severe, never in the middle)
I think they were caused my by tude yesterday. The day started ok. I left for work and it took me much longer than normal (over an hour and 15 mins) because of traffic. I decided while I was sitting at a stand still to check my work email….mistake 1. There were two emails that irritated me and I couldnt do anything about them until I got to the office. I keep telling myself to stop checking emails before I get to work, but when the traffic gods prevent me from getting to work on time, I feel like I have to check just out of guilt.
The day didnt get any better. We are getting ready for a big show in July and while I like to get things done early, not everyone shares that view. Cluster!
I texted my mom and told her we were going to the outlet mall this weekend because I had a little spending money. Plus I only go shopping like this once, maybe twice a year. I had to deposit a check I received and my bank hasnt really made it to Georgia yet, there are only limited locations. It was a nightmare to get to that location. I was done. It took me almost two hours to get to the bank. Seriously?
When I got to the bank I had two choices, get back in that mess or go shopping. I dont need to tell you what I chose.
I scored the cutest dress from New York and Company for $30 (50% off)! I also bought a white cardigan which I desperately need.
I love how springy/summery it is. I can dress it up or dress it down. Its a little big in the top (which is usually NOT the case for me).
After I got home, I made the night a very quiet one. I left the tv off, turned the computer off, and read. My other friend just finished reading Hunger Games and loved it. You must read it (ahem Megan). I took a hot bath and tried hard to unwind.
How do you remedy bad days? Since Im
saving my money pinching pennies, I like to craft or clean. Or go for a run.
What are your plans for the weekend?
Have I mentioned how much I have missed running this month? I do and I hope my leg is 100% in two weeks. Its better to be safe than sorry, right?
