So much has happened, where do I begin?!?!
Since I’ve started my new job I swear I haven’t stopped. The week flies by so quickly and the weekends are jammed pack with stuff I missed doing during the week. Every week night is spent looking for a house, yes that’s right, the boyfriend and I are looking for a house! How exciting!!
We’ve actually been looking since February, but it’s been serious the last couple of weeks. So serious we put an offer on a house already. We didn’t get it, but I truly believe that we didn’t get it for a reason and that there is a better house out there for us. It’s also a hot market right now, so we are bidding against people who probably have a little more wiggle room.
We are taking this weekend off from house shopping. It’s the Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend so we are dedicated to family gatherings every day. Except tonight. Tonight I am going with work to a football game. I’m pretty excited since we are in the end zone and have unlimited amounts of beer and junk food.
Oh! Speaking of junk food, I’m doing this “cleanse” type diet. It’s actually a powder that you mix with water and drink it before two meals. This product was originally made for people with diabetes. It regulates how fast your body breaks down the food and prevents an insulin spike. Since insulin turns into fat they noticed that people were losing weight on it and decided to turn it into a weight loss product. I’m still doing the traditional stuff, exercise and proper eating, but I thought I could use a little help since we are getting into the “fat” season. I always gain weight between Thanksgiving and Christmas and I would really like to avoid it this year since I had to work so hard to lose weight this year.
Speaking of losing weight, I put on my leather jacket that the boyfriend bought for me last season and it’s too big 😦 I never took that into consideration that any clothes I bought during my little weight slip wouldn’t really fit me now. Oh well, it doesn’t look terrible. I wasn’t THAT much bigger a year ago.
I’ve been a little stressed out about my friendships lately. I have this friend who has been dating the boyfriends friend, which I was all excited for at first. But when she started dating him I had a conversation with her about how I was going to feel when she starts becoming friends with all the other girlfriends and that I didn’t want to ever feel left out. I’m super sensitive to this friend stuff and I’ve lost so many friends I thought were true friends but turned out to not be, so I will do everything I can to avoid that. I told her that I want to be included in everything and that I was afraid that she was going to become better friends with the other girls. Did I mention this friend is my best friend? Well, since she started dating the boyfriends friend, it’s been happening, slowly, exactly what I told her I didn’t want to happen. I haven’t been excluded yet, but I’ve been getting the impression that I’m invited ONLY because I told her I didn’t want to be excluded. I get the feeling I’m not welcome and they would much rather be hanging out without me.
The boyfriend doesn’t understand. Boys are different. They don’t see things the way we do. He doesn’t understand that when we are invited to do something last-minute and our plans are not taken into consideration, they probably thought about us after the fact.
Anyway, I’m complaining. So enough of that!
It’s Friday and a long weekend! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and to my Canadians, I happy Thanksgiving.
