#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Rage and Excitement

Happy Humpday my friends.

This Wednesday for me is bitter sweet, and full of frustration, rage and excitement. Quite a combo right?

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!

  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag


Alright on to the details. Let's talk about the crap before the good stuff ok?

I went to the foot and ankle specialist yesterday. I had been walking in just my boot for a couple days and feeling AWESOME about it. Yay, not more crutches! I thought he would confirm I was on my way to healing and just to take good care of it and wear the boot a while longer. WRONG. I was chastised for walking on it already and told I probably need to be on crutches for 4-6 more WEEKS plus where the boot for walking for 6 MORE WEEKS after that #FML #ialmostcried #butmostlyiwaspissed

Basically my whole life is turned upside down because of this. I was prepared for 2-4 weeks of my life being off, but this is months of recovery. Months of not being able to do the things I normally do, and especially not the things I enjoy doing, like playing volleyball #oktearsarecoming #newsubject

He did prescribe me an I-walk. Basically a peg leg. Just call me Captain Lolo #argh #wheresmeeyepatch?

So I get to try that out Thursday. I still haven't been to the grocery store this week. I cried today because I didn't have anyone to take me #seriousbreakdownissues

But enough of the boo-hooing. Sorry about that. I did get wonderful news this week! That exciting thing I've hinted to a few times? It's that I've been interviewing for basically my dream job. And guess what... I got it!!! #ballerstatus

Today is bitter sweet because it is the day I give my two weeks notice. It's probably the hardest thing about any job, or at least a job you once loved so much. I will miss the people mostly, and the Fair craziness. I probably will shed some tears. But I won't miss the drama or the drive #commutebluesareover

I'll fill you in once everything is official. Start date is February 15th and I plan to dive in head first, pirate leg and all!

Ok so no it's your turn. What's going on with you this week? Link up!

  5. Congrats on the new job!!! That is exciting. I'm sorry to hear about the extended timeline. Hopefully as more time passes you will be able to find ways to work around it all easier!

  6. Yay congratulations on getting the job!!!!!!! I cried for days when I left my last job but it was an hour away from home so once I had helped open a Centre at home it just made sense to work where I lived. It's never easy leaving though

    And booo for the bad news from your Doctor :(

  7. First of all congratulations on the job! What will you be doing?

    Also I'm sorry about the extended timeline, that's sucks for sure! I actually scratched my contact at work the other day and had to walk around with one eye closed most of the day. My coworkers were joking that I needed an eyepatch and a parrot. So I'm right there with you, Captain Hook.

  8. Whoa... bummer on the leg but CONGRATULATIONS on the job! That's awesome!

  17. AHHH congrats on the dream job! You rock, girl! I'm sorry to hear about wearing that boot for even longer, and having to keep the crutches -- but now you better LISTEN to your Dr., girl!!! ;)
