The Visitor Who Stayed Too Long

I like my husband's friends, but when I come home from work counting down the seconds until I can take off my bra, the last thing I want to see is one of their cars in the driveway. It sounds cruel or unwelcoming, but it is what it is.

I can handle having company over if they've been invited, but I just don't get these people who drop by unannounced to just hang out. I don't do that to other people.

Anyway, that happened two days ago and I'm still bitching about it:) My husband was also a little annoyed by the guy because he was cooking dinner and had to stop everything to entertain the guy who stayed for TWO HOURS! WHO DOES THAT?

Thankfully, my back is better and it's given me a boost in the exercise department. I've done really good workouts twice this week plus some yoga and stretching stuff 3 times. 

My eating has been fine, but I'm not really tracking it.

We ate Mexican last night at a restaurant called JalapeƱos and I didn't get a margarita! I'm calling that both an NSV and a spend-less-money victory. I don't drink often, but I love margaritas from Mexican restaurants. 

Work is a little stressful because I'm trying to do a lot of stuff since I'm taking off most of next week and I'm such a stress eater, but I'm really making an effort to not keep food at work. It's mostly helping, but I swear that stupid vending machine winks and nods at me. Sigh.

Oh! I also had another episode a couple of nights ago where my heart started racing while I tried to fall asleep. I took my BP and the bottom number was in the 90s plus my pulse was 99. I've been to the doctor about this and was told not to worry. I guess it could be anxiety. At the risk of sounding like a hippie, I might try out some meditation exercises.


  1. Stress is a bitch and I'm also learning to deal with it better. Meditation sounds interesting.

  2. girl I know what you mean. I also stress so easily
    One of my friends stayed for 2 hours and I had no idea what to talk :( after the first thirty mins

  3. Not getting a margarita is definitely a victory! :-)

    Now you have me wanting to rip my bra off....and I"m HOURS from being home (and yes, I take it off almost as soon as I get home!)
