Let’s Toast to Friday!


some people dream world

This week flew by in a haze of hormones and work was insanely busy and more stressful than usual.  Was it a great week? No, but it wasn’t a bad one either. I did manage to lose 3 1/2 lbs, which is fantastic considering the hormones make me really hungry lol. Down 6 lbs total as of week 2. I definitely have to kick it into high gear this week and get moving.

Through it all, who calls just to say he loves me or make me laugh when I’m sad?  Who is always there for me with love and support? My husband. He has never given up on me or on us, even when I was ready to. I had forgotten just how wonderful a man and a person he is and how much I enjoy being with him. Somewhere along the way we lost that part of our relationship and I am so happy to be rediscovering it. I still don’t know what will happen but it’s looking pretty good. I am having Friday pizza with my family tonight and then tomorrow a date night with my H after I pick my brother and his family up from the airport. They took the kids to Disneyworld for the first time and I cannot wait to hear all about it! I am definitely going where the love is and hopefully there will be some great sex too lol! Fingers crossed. Enjoy your weekend everyone 😉

A Valuable Lesson I Learned In Life

A reblog of a post from earlier this year.
This may not be a pleasant truth but it is, indeed, a valuable lesson. I was always taught to be good to people and they will be good to you. And yes for the most part you do get back what you give. Unfortunately this IS NOT always the case.

Whether it be in relationships, friendships, coworkers, even a fellow blogger here on WordPress. Some people are just too self-absorbed, screwed up, depressed, moody, disrespectful or just plain weird to reciprocate our kindnesses.

Or even worse, some people mistake kindness for weakness. With me, this mistake is only made once lol. I am very kind but extremely strong and have no problem saying how I feel.

While we cannot control what others do or how they act, we can choose how we respond. Personally I wish them well, wallow for a day or 2, maybe blog about it or write in my journal and then thankfully once I have worked it through in my mind and heart, I just let it go.

Please remember just because someone does not treat you as you do them, it usually has very little to do with you. It is their own difficulties and issues. So just keep being who you are because you are special and wonderful.

Go where the love is 🙂

Positive Outlooks

Life has taught me that you can’t control someone’s loyalty. No matter how good you are to them, doesn’t mean that they will treat you the same. No matter how much they mean to you, doesn’t mean that they’ll value you the same. Sometimes the people you love the most, turn out to be the people you can trust the least. — Trent Shelton

Life is too short to waste on people who are too scared and damaged to keep you in their life. I must remember NEVER to make a priority of anyone who makes me an option. I definitely believe that everything happens for a reason. But I will be damned if I know why I cared so much for someone who proved himself to be worth so little.

How could I have loved such a totally clueless fool? LOL  I get love being blind, but is it deaf and dumb as well???  I know everyone is probably as sick of hearing about all this as I am of feeling like such an idiot.  But I would implore you for your patience and support for just a short while. I am sorting through all that has happened and then I promise you will not have to hear anything more about Putz (yes I thought it was a fitting name). Then I will forget about him and never let him bother me again. I love hard and true, but when I am done? I’m done and there is no going back.  That is just who I am.

Sorry I am not yet back to my positive, happy self but at least it’s real n honest. I think that’s always better than being fake.

A Fair

I woke up feeling a little tired and lazy (thank you antidepressant side effect lol).  With depression you never really know how you will feel from day to day. But I have many more good days than bad so I am definitely not complaining.

So my husband wanted to go to a local fair. I thought I would be up for it but then I really wasn’t. I could see he was upset so I pushed myself. As those with depression know, this isn’t always possible. Thankfully today it was.

We got there and I started looking at the jewelry,  handbags, scarves, etc. Basically all things I love to buy, wear and browse through lol.  And because I hadn’t wanted to come, hubby was extremely sweet about me buying a few things. I know most men, including him, could care less about those things so I appreciated his patience.

We stopped at a jewelry cleaner table and it was really cool! It worked magic on my platinum diamond wedding rings, my silver hoops and even my grandmother’s antique sapphire and diamond ring from the 1920’s. I couldn’t believe it when my H asked the man if he could clean his platinum band. I think he’s let me clean it twice in ten years lol. I happily bought a huge bottle of the non-toxic cleaner.

Then we met a friend of his, stopped and ate together.  He’s quite a colorful character,  always with a hilarious story to make me laugh.

I am really glad I was able to go and we had such a great time just walking around and laughing.  I enjoy simple pleasures in life, especially since losing my Mom. I just don’t think I realized that we really need to have fun together.

I truly remembered why we fell in love in the first place.  I didn’t think about P all day!

Today I have to say
Me: 1 and Depression: 0
