just.keep.swimming's Journal, 13 May 2012

Ah, what a week this has been.
I'm obviously not losing weight, but I tried really hard to eat reasonably 6 out of the last 7 days, so that has to count for a little. :)

Highlight of the week is that my mom is happy and excited about her 60th birthday party. That means I'm doing something right, and makes all the time, effort, stress, drama and money worth it. I think I've got a pretty cool theme if I do say so myself. :-D I've got a candy and candy cupcakes for every decade. A food item from every decade to make up the meal, and a drink from each. And it all works together, plus is low-maintenance/can be prepped ahead. I'm still hoping for a miracle, that one of my five brothers will suddenly decide that he's willing to chip in.... but in the event of reality- I think I've budgeted to afford it all. I'm borrowing decorations to fit the theme, and music. I also found an entire tote full of pictures, so I'm doing a collage for each decade. This is a big deal, since my brothers and I were told there are no pictures of our childhoods/dad/anything.

Other happy news: I've mended my relationship with my best friend. It's still fragile, but I'm so happy to have her back.
Also- I got a promotion (kind of) at work. :) 3.5 months into my job and I'm cross-training for a new/very hard department. And I absolutely love it. I'm done with week one of the five week training, and so far what I understand is that it's a gigantic puzzle of code. My job will be to look through this puzzle and figure out what isn't working/matching. It's the type of thing where one segment missing can mean 64 different answers. I even dream about it at night, and it's happy dreams. Wow- I'm weird. Haha.

My sister-in-law tried to be... herself. I guess that's the best way to put it. I'm finally to the point where I can laugh at it, but it's been an interesting week. Four times this week she has tried to swindle me out of money. And where she gets the idea that I don't work during the week, and have no life of my own... I don't know. Well, unfortunately for her, I stood firm in my "No" and can now laugh at all of the absurd schemes she is trying to pull on me. So yay! I've learned to not be a doormat.

Hmm. Other news. My friend was suicidal last week, but he is ok. Thank god. I had a boy ask me out, always nice. I'm making new friends at work. And the friends who are guys very obviously have no interest in me as a girl, which is bliss. :)
I'm counting this as a positive too: I pissed off a good friend of mine, but it's positive because I'm being assertive and honest. If I lose him as a friend, it will be because I stood up for my right not to be stalked, not because I ran away from scary situations. And another blessing: it's now very clear that he is not boyfriend material. This clarity is nice, as he's been toying with me for a while now.

Happy Mother's day to all moms out there! If anyone reads this, sorry to write a long journal after being gone forever.
