Day 13 - An Apology {to myself}

Day 13 of the Blog Challenge and today we're supposed to issue a public apology {this could be as funny or serious or creative as you want it to be}.  

There are probably a lot of people that I need to offer a public apology to.  But I decided that  I would apologize to myself.  Please excuse my writing in the third person.

Dear Self,

I want to apologize for being so hard on you.  I know you work hard and that you need to take better care of yourself.  I'm sorry that we haven't been able to get to the gym in a while.  I need to do a better job in getting us back into a routine again.
I'm sorry that we haven't kept a work-life balance.  We need less work and more life!  Let's work on that.  I'm sorry that when I look in the mirror that sometimes I don't like what I see even though we've worked hard on losing weight.  For some reason I still want more.  I need to make sure we're happy just being in the present and realize what we've accomplished should be celebrated and not ever torn down.
Let's keep staying positive and strong!  We'll get there.



Come back tomorrow for Ten Things That Make Me Happy!

Day 12 - Missing Simplicity and Missing Him

Day 12 of the Blog Challenge and today we get to talk about Something We Miss {this could be a person, a place, a time in your life, etc....}

When I saw this post coming up my thoughts immediately went to my Grandfather.  It's been several years since he's passed but at times it still feels as though he was just here. They say that time heals all wounds but I'm not so sure.  There isn't a day that goes by that my mind doesn't wander to thoughts of him.

I miss having him in my life.  The way I could just bounce things off of him and get his thoughts and opinions always gave me comfort.  Even with the miles between us I always knew he was right there if I needed him.  He raised me.  He was my family.  I miss that and I miss him.

I also miss the days of simplicity.  The days where the hubs and I could jaunt off on weekends without a care in the world.  To the beach; on a road-trip; out on the lake; a quick 9 holes walking around the golf course; just sitting on the couch enjoying each other's company without having to worry about the million things we had to do or get done.  I miss those days on a daily basis.  I want them back in our life.  I need them back in our life.  We all do.

Day 10 - Most Embarrassing

Day Ten of the Challenge and today we are supposed to spill the beans about an Embarrassing Moment{s} in our life.

Oh boy!  Where do I begin?  I've had many an embarrassing moment in my life and I'm sure there will be many more to come.  A few stand out in my memory that had me wishing I could run for the hills never to be seen or heard from again.  Some are too embarrassing to even write for public viewing so my apologies but I won't be going there!

I attend large conferences a lot.  One year we were all in a very nice large ball room with marble floors during an opening cocktail social.  There had to be over 200 of my industry peers in the room.

For those of you that know me, you know that I tend to talk with my hands a lot when telling a story.  So there I was talking with a group of people, telling a funny story when all of a sudden my waving, animated hands knocked over not one but TWO glasses of wine off the top of the bar.  The glassed filled with red wine proceeded to go flying onto the floor with the loudest crash in all the land.  At that moment I felt like things were moving in slow motion.  Not only did the whole room go instantly silent but my so called friends were now looking and pointing at me showing the whole conference who the clumsy culprit was.  I was pretty mortified to say the least!  The sad thing is I hadn't even had a sip yet.

Sorry...but I can only dish out the G rated version of one of my embarrassing moments! Check back in tomorrow where I will try and Sell Myself in 10 Words or Less.

Happy Weekend!

Day 9 - A Tiny Moment

Day 9 of the Blog Everyday in May Challenge and today is just a Moment of Our Day (in a photo or words).
We took the MIL out for an early Mother's Day dinner.  She wanted to go to Japanese which was fine by me because is it my FAVORITE eating spot.  The chef made this fun "sponge bob" that made us all laugh.  It was a tiny but fun moment in the day with family.

Stay tuned tomorrow where we get to share a Most Embarrassing Moment {yikes}!
