Weekend Update

I'm so excited!! I get to go to Orlando this week for a conference. I don't really see the point in conferences because my company is far ahead of the game, but it's in Orlando and I'm not turning down this trip!!

Very uneventful weekend. I think I got a case of the crappiness. I was super cranky this weekend. I'm not sure if I'm PMSing or just in a short funk. I'm out of it and ready to take on the world! I have my advisor meeting tonight and then I must pack for Orlando because I leave tomorrow.

The one thing I did do this weekend was go to the movies with Dave last night. I hate going to movies. I think it’s because of it being a public place where everyone is suppose to be attentively paying attention to the big screen, only there's always someone who's not. Like the people sitting in front of me last night who were texting on their cell phones. There was no noise, just a glare in the lower part of my eye every time they flipped open their cell phones. Were they texting each other? Was what they were talking about so important that it couldn't wait until after the 2 hour movie? I mean if you have that much going on in your life maybe National Treasure should take a backseat. Really.

Thursday morning should not feel like Monday choas

My morning:

6:15am - my father wakes me up from a deep dead sleep to give me my cell phone because apparently the alarm had been going off.
6:16am - I convince myself that if I lay down for 5 minutes I will wake up and that my back up plan is the 2nd alarm that is set for 6:45am
7:30am - wake up from deep dead sleep again, this time by trash men outside. I'm thinking its weird they are at my house so early until I look at my phone which says it's really 7:30.
I then try to get up in a hurry but feel like I'm drunk from sleep. I believe I ran into the same wall at least 3 times.
7:55am - driving to work when I realize I have my contacts switched. At a stop light I take out one contact only to realize I only put one in. I put contact into the worst seeing eye (even though its not the correct one) and look down at my lap like my other contact would magically be sitting there.
8:15am - get to work, still groggy, can't really see, and worried I will pulled in for a drug test because I still can't walk without running into walls.

From there I try to work. Nothing got accomplished and I'm exhausted. So I decide to turn out my light, crawl underneath my desk (I have window where you can see into my office so I didn't want anyone to see me) and closed my eyes while breathing in the positive and breathing out the negative. I told you I was weird. After what felt like 3 minutes which I'm sure was 10 minutes I crawled back out, turned on my light, and tried to work. I then immediately decided I needed to take my lunch even though it's only 11:30 and go to Sonic. I ended up going to Wendy's because it closer.

On a totally different note (which is hopefully more positive)

I heard this question yesterday so I'm posing it to you.

What was your favorite thing about yesterday.
Mine - my 15 minute work out class at work. There were probably about 8 women, we worked out our arms and laughed at ourselves. Lots of fun.

Update on wedding stuff: Honeymoon is booked! We're going to Monetgo Bay, Jamaica!!

Why I believe I'm weird

1. I'm paranoid about going to an actual stylist to get my hair cut.
It's stupid and silly, I know. But I can get away with paying $35 for a cut and color and feel fine. But apparently when you are about to walk down the aisle, you need a "professional" to do your hair. Therefore, I'll be spending a car payment on a trial run. Slow deep breaths, slow deep breaths.

2. I can rewatch just about any television show a hundred times, but can't stand going to the movies.
I know how CSI will end or who gets kicked off of Project Runway, ANTM, or even Tila Tequila. But ask me what movies are out or the last time I saw one and I couldn't tell you. I blame it on the fact that I truly believe I should have my own show.

3. I'm scared of being judge at the gym.
I feel like ever time I got to the gym people are 1) wondering why I don't know how to work a stupid machine 2) don't believe I should be there because I'm "skinny" 3) are scared I'm going to die of a heart attack when I try running on the treadmill or bike because of the pain that's on my face

4. I can't remember outfits.
I'm almost positive that I've worn the same outfit to work in the same week. Probably more than once. Not only can I not remember what I've worn, I only pair things with certain items. Blue sweater always goes with gray pants, so therefore if I did wear the same outfit it's the entire outfit and not just an article.

5. I hate calling the pizza place.
That is one of the worst things I can think of. I don't know why. I can call our accrediting body and ask questions, I call our state licensing and see where our approvals stand, but I can't calling the pizza place. Thank god we can order over the Internet.

I'm sure my friends can think of things that are abnormal about me. These were just a few that popped into my head!
