Happy Humpday world.
It’s that time once again to tell you all my weekly secrets and thoughts via Kathy’s awesome link up.
Here are my confessions…
There are way too many naked old ladies at my gym. BIG naked old ladies. Apparently I go at the old lady time of day (lunch hour) and it is their favorite time to change in the locker room. Now I’m not overly modest, I also change in the locker room, but I don’t strip completely down and sit around and chat. I guess when you are that age you are over being self-conscious? That’s all well and good but honestly I don’t want to see all that skin, on anyone. Obviously it takes them a while to dress/undress due to their elderly pace, but really, I can’t avert my eyes fast enough. It’s a whole lotta something not pleasant and it’s an everyday occurrence. I can’t go one day to the gym without seeing one of the beached whales (sorry for the insensitivity) and it’s starting to wear on me. I might have to re-schedule my gym time.
Seeing naked, pale, overweight elderly ladies makes me really really scared to get old. Does anyone else have that fear? To get old and less mobile and feel yourself slowly deteriorate? Seriously it scares the shit out of me. I’m starting to get wrinkles already. Wrinkles. Mostly on my forehead and it’s like a sign that I’m aging out of control.
I lost the gift certificate I got for my birthday (March) for a gel manicure and a pedicure at a nice salon in town. I tore my house apart Sunday looking for it to no avail. I was distraught. In a final act of desperation I called the place hoping they kept some kind of record of gift certificates – and what do you know, they have it on file!!!! SCORE! My nails are going to be fab for the wedding next weekend.
Speaking of that nail appointment, it is scheduled next Monday. During work hours. Why? Because I realized the most wonderful thing yesterday - it is a work holiday for me! BOOM BABY. Man I love the perks of working for the government.
I don’t think it’s a secret around the blog that I’m in a bit of credit card debt. I did some creative re-arranging of my assets and I am proud to announce that by the end of this week (or even this day) I will be completely credit card debt free. WAHOOOOO!!! The bad part about all this? Now I want to spend and feel like I have the flexibility to do so. I’m trying to push that thought out of my mind. I’ve taken my cards out of my purse and they are living in my bathroom drawer until the urge passes. But let’s be honest, they will be resurfacing for my trip so I that hole will start digging itself again.
They have started calling me a “short timer” at work. It’s the term we throw around when you don’t come to work much and seem completely distracted by upcoming events. This is my last full week and then I ONLY work Tuesday next week (see Monday off above) and then it’s sayonara suckers – vacation and wedding time!
I haven’t decided yet whether or not I am going to be a good blogger while on my week and half long trip. All evidence lends itself to a no on that one. We shall see. Maybe I can get some pre-written posts done prior and shock
myself you all! On that note, would anyone like to be a guest
blogger between October 15th and 24th? Let me know!!
That’s all I’ve got for now. Keep your eyes averted from naked old ladies and go link up!
