Day 166

Monday, December 12, 2016

Temperature: High 41° / Low 25°


What Kind  of Day Did I Have & Why?

My feelings were hurt when I figured out that we didn’t have enough Christmas tree lights to decorate our damn tree today. Apparently, we decided last year that we were going to toss out a few old strings...and fast forwarding to tonight, it turns out that I FORGOT all about this. This means that  I thought I was going to have a holiday-spirity decorating party with my man...but I was wrong. This jacked up my mood for a good part of the night, but Che tried his best to distract me.

Whew, okay! Now that I got that off of my chest, I have to admit that today was still a good day. I got my workout in, got my first P.O. Box & EIN for the biz and got to do a few other things that I can’t think of at the moment.


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

No aches and pains to mention really. It was smooth sailing all day...I’ll give it a 2! Which deserves a happy dance considering the last week that I had!


Workout Time & Duration?


She's baaaack!!! I was back in my element today! A 2-hour afternoon BOOTY DAY workout was just what I needed and I'm believing that I'll carry this energy with me through the rest of the week too! Why was it 2 hours? Because I did an extra set of a few exercises, got a good stretch in and added a little abs into the mix. I said I was back! I felt like a fake ass Beyonce in there!
(Which is a good thing, by the way)


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

So, I did get an email from Lea with what looks like pictures of the textiles she found for the napkins while at the Guatemalan market today. I haven’t had a chance to dig in yet, but it looks promising from the quick scan that I did. I had to push that to tomorrow because I thought I was going to be decorating a tree today.

Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Following up from Saturday’s revelation, we looked at pictures of the restaurant that we are having our Pre-Wedding Night on the Town. Che spent more time on it than I did to be honest… I was too busy having my No Christmas Lights Blues... but we’re still not so sure about the private area options. We need more details, so Che will reach out to see what he can find out from them.

Loving Black Love Moment?

When I say my feelings were hurt, I mean my feelings were HUUURT about my Christmas lights (or lack thereof) tonight. I was sad-faced, with a halfway stank ass attitude all night...I had those I want to cry but I knew it was ridiculous kind of hurt feelings tonight. I’m trying to paint a picture of just how bad it was… So Che tried his best and ended up victorious in defeating my No Christmas Lights Blues but he MUST love me to deal with and work through my shenanigans to make me feel better. He’s just what I need...every day!

What am I happy for?

Michaels craft store for always having what I need for Christmas (and really any holiday). I know they will pull through tomorrow and I may even get a few more ornaments for the tree while I’m there. Who am I kidding??? I definitely will leave with some more ornaments too - but they’ll be on sale! The idea of their sale alone makes me happy!

What could I have done better?

Looking back on it now, I know that I could have realized that not having enough Christmas Lights tonight wasn’t the end of the world per se…I could (and probably should) have snapped out of it and not let it sour the night for me like I did. I’m a brat sometimes...what can I say? There’s always tomorrow. And tomorrow there will be lights!


What am I doing tomorrow?
