Stressful Day!

I’m in a mood! We will see which direction this goes lol! It’s a sad day….#1 I had to take Anton back to work today after 2 wonderful weeks together! Luckily, I will be joining him in just 1 week! #2 I got another speeding ticket today! :O I managed to make it through most of my driving years and could say “I’ve never gotten a ticket” Until a few years ago….I seem to be trying to catch up for all the years I went ticketless! This time I was clueless! I honestly thought I was doing the correct speed limit! Had cruise set and everything! GrRRR!!!! I was as nervous as could be the rest of the ride home! Had a cop pull out behind me and it tore me to pieces until he finally passed me! #3 I have to go back to work in the morning after 6 days off!!! 😦 and to make it all worse…I am short staffed all week and have tons and tons of work to get done! I went in this evening after hours and did a little bit but couldn’t concentrate well enough to do anything major. #4 I have an issue that has me worrying….I am already doing everything I can do to resolve the issue at the moment, lots of sitting and waiting, which I am not good at! I try keeping it out of my mind since  no good can come from the constant worry, but it always seems to creep back up. I feel as if I am in need of a very good cry. One of those ugly face cries. I feel it building up!

On the bright side! We had a wonderful weekend away! We visited my family & Anton’s family. It was an extremely busy, on the go time, but lots of fun! My family proved yet again to be dysfunctional and full of drama! (Uggghh! Thanks guys!) While his family proved to be entertaining, fun, and so easy to be around! I love every second of our time together and I long for it the second we are not together. It’s gonna be a long week! I’m sure I will write more later! xoxo

Weekend Away!

The weekends always seem so short!!! Especially when they are as busy as this past weekend was for us! We went back to my boyfriend’s hometown to move some more of his belongings here (YAY! 🙂 ) While we were there we were invited to an authentic Japanese dinner by a friend of the family. WOW! The food was out of this world…amazing….delicious!! And so much of it! I even tried sushi for the very first time! Talk about stepping out of one’s box…that is something I would have never tried before. Fortunately the new me is open to new experiences! I have to admit I was a little nervous about trying it! Everyone watching …waiting for my reaction. And it was ….o.k.! I didn’t feel the need to spit any  part of it out! Definitely a win for new experiences! We were also served fried and steamed dumplings for our appetizers. Dinner started with a salad with this awesome Oriental Salad Dressing that I must find for sell somewhere! Then came the miso soup (yesss…just like in the Japanese restaurants!) Then we had a chicken dish with some type of chow mein type noodles and a beef and noodle dish. Both were very good! Just when we thought dinner was over, we were presented with yet another plate full of a variety of food. Shrimp, chicken, salads, steak marinated in ginger, rice…..we ate until we couldn’t move! It was all delicious! The entertainment that went along with our dinner was just as good as the food. A 70 year old Japanese woman telling stories about her life, about her culture and her family. The evening ended with everyone taking turns singing karaoke! Our hostess even sang two beautiful Japanese songs! It was a delightful evening spent with family and friends and I only wish we all lived closer and could have these type of evenings together more often!
