Journal Entry #154

Oh wow, how lucky are we that the 13th landed on a Saturday instead of a Friday this weekend!?

I’m starting to feel all crabby and groggy again. I checked my period tracker app and saw that I am 10 days away from my period, ha. This always happens! I wish my hormones didn’t get so wacky; I seriously feel like a complete different person every month for 10-12 days.

I’m sooo not in the mood for work tonight but, I know I’ll only feel worse if I don’t go.

Thursday night went really well for me. I stayed until close (5 AM) and got there around 11 PM. I was lucky to find one very generous and kind man to spend my time with.

Boyfriend worked that evening so I had to whip something up for myself to eat. We had some leftover cooked chicken that didn’t have much flavor so I made a noodle stir-fry with it and added some frozen veggies we had in the freezer.


I mixed unknown amounts of oyster, soy sauce, honey, Hawaiian teriyaki sauce, and minced garlic to create the sauce. It actually turned out quite tasty and I was very impressed with myself. πŸ˜€

I started watching this show called UnREAL and I’m already hooked 3 episodes in. Love, love, love the consistent drama. It really sucks me in– to the point I can turn my brain all the way off.

Yesterday, boyfriend had the day off so he was able to make us a yummy dinner. We had quite a few errands to run so we were in a rush to get them done after eating. When we got home from all the driving around, I sat and poked around on the computer for a little bit before I started to get ready. After getting ready, I did a lot more sitting and poking around lol.

I asked boyfriend if he wanted go check out the Love Store before he dropped me off.

It says “where the fun begins” above the doors.

I had never been there before so I was excited!! It was such a cute place. There were a lot of work clothes to choose from but, what I really need are some new work shoes. Too bad they didn’t have a great selection of those… so I just bought a new outfit and some hosiery, hehe. I’ll have to go to Red Shoes for my heels next week sometime.

Work was alright, there weren’t that many customers for a Friday night but, I managed to get enough attention… more than I had hoped for, to be honest, because I was feeling so unsociable and drained. I ended my night a little before 3 AM hit and it felt so good to go home.

Today, I feel a little better than yesterday… by like an eyelash hair lol. I was going to order delivery for dinner but, my card is in boyfriend’s wallet so I didn’t know my card info (he’s at work). I, instead, took a quick walk to Alberston’s and bought White Bean Chicken Chili Soup and an Asian Chicken Salad.


I ate it in front of an episode of UnREAL and continued watching until I decided to get to writing this.

I think I wanna go to a haunted house tomorrow but, I also just wanna lay down and never get up lol. On Monday, boyfriend’s co-worker is having an SNL themed Halloween party. We might go but, don’t know what we’d do for our costumes. Suggestions, anyone?? I want to match/be one of the infamous couples, for sure.

Our 4 year anniversary is coming up, too. It’s the first of next month and I wanna go to Mt. Charleston (about an hour away) to stay in a cabin for one night. We’ll probably go and celebrate a day early though so we can be home for my “work week”/ the weekend.

None of those plans are actually set in stone yet but, they are all on the agenda. The party is probably not going to happen because I am not a party-person but, boyfriend has been invited to so many co-worker parties and each time he has asked me to go with him, I have completely bailed or pretended to forget. I think he really wants to go though, so I may be a trooper for him just this once!!

Hope you’ve all had a nice weekend so far! ❀

  1. Here in India it is that period of time when the entire nation is celebrating the WELCOME OF GODESS DURGA into our planet. Every year she comes in October and the autumns become festive. Where as, I am celebrating this weekend to take a breath from work. I so hate going to job, but bills and credit cards are so not good for health.

    1. Halloween is so fun! Just because others don’t make it a “big thing” doesn’t mean you can’t, right?! πŸ˜‰ I laughed at that costume, too!! Hahaha thanks for sharing it with me. ❀


  2. Hahaha I am so with, I hate parties & am so antisocial. Although SNL themed does sound fun (funnily enough we at watching SNL skits as I type) I think we would go as β€˜The Festrunk Brothers’ or I would be Stefon. xxx

    1. Ugh, parties are just not my thing!! I wanted to be Nuni & Nuni but, we probably aren’t going lol. We were also thinkin’ bout those boy scout boys hahaha. The Festrunk Brothers & Stefon would’ve been great, too!! I also love Gilly. πŸ˜€

    1. I know, doesn’t it sound amazing?! Ahhh! I can’t wait. ❀ I've never slept in away in a cabin before. The one we're going to doesn't even have wi-fi available & bad phone service. I think we'll be there on Halloween so it'll be kind of spooky!!

  3. Wow – that noodle dish you made looks amazing! I would totally eat that right this second if it were available to me. It’s still early, though, and I’m feeling lazy and haven’t had enough coffee yet. πŸ˜€

  4. That stir-fry looks amazing!! ❀ Also, how fun would it be to stay in a cabin for your anniversary?? That's so romantic! πŸ˜‰ I totally want to do that sometime with Joshua for like a snowy vacation lol. And I get it about going to the work parties. I get so anxious when Joshua and I do any of that stuff with his work. It's just not my thing haha.

    1. Hehe, thank you. πŸ˜‰ The stir-fry really wasn’t all that great lol! & yes! We’re so excited for the cabin! I sure hope it won’t be snowing though…

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like parties– seriously makes me feel so much better. ❀ ❀

  5. Parties can definitely be overwhelming! So many people and their energy! But, I bet you two would be the coolest costumed cats at the shindig! Congratulations on your four year anniversary! A cabin sounds very romantic…and based on your comment-reply….a little spooky! Have an awesome week!

    1. Yeah!! Parties are just hard because it feels like you have to interact & get to know every single person especially since I’ve met like none of them before. πŸ˜› Boyfriend thinks I’m crazy when I tell him about feeling other people’s energies… but I do! & I’m so so glad you get that!! ❀ ❀

      Are you dressing up for Halloween this year? Or going to any fun parties?!

      Thank you so much! It's been the best 4 years of my life! ❀ Cabins have just always given me a spooky feel & we won't have any wi-fi or cell phone service just like in a horror film lol. Hope you have an awesome week, too!! ❀

      1. Feeling people’s energies is a real thing…especially at parties… everyone seems to know everyone and you are like, um hi….can i go hide in a corner and read a book for five minutes? Like an introverted time-out?

        Halloween is on a Wednesday…so I am not sure what we are going to do! I teach a yoga class afterwork…so i might dress up as cat woman for that πŸ˜‰ K and I have flapper/roaring 20’s costumes….so maybe go downtown and admire everyone’s costumes πŸ™‚ I might go to a party the Saturday before πŸ˜‰

        Enjoy your haunted cabin retreat and have an awesome week πŸ™‚

        1. Hahah yess! You explained it perfectly. ❀

          Dressing up as cat woman to teach yoga would just be cutest thing ever!! I love the Roaring 20's style so much. πŸ˜€ Hope you have so much fun on Halloween & on Saturday!!

          Thank you!! ❀ ❀


  6. Lol, I had the SAME thought about the 13th being on a Saturday!

    Girl, PMSing is the worst. I empathize big time. I can turn into an entirely different person, haha.

    Those noodles look amazing!!!

    I love UnReal! I am not all the way caught up- that reminds me that I need to pick it back up. I left off a lot of shows last year when work got intense, but that one is a goodie that I need to get back to.

    Glad work was ok for ya- I totally know what you mean about feeling unsociable and drained- we all get in those moods, and I wear my emotions on my face so it’s a bit rough haha.

    Oooo gimme that salad! YUMMY!

    I’m eager to see if you went to the Halloween party!! Sounds like fun!

    Aw, four years?! That’s wonderful ❀

    1. Hahah yay! I’m not the only superstitious out there. πŸ˜€ & seriously, PMS is so hard. I feel so much anger inside all the time but I have nothing to yell & get it out about!!

      UnReal is so good!! I’m only in the middle of Season 02 right now but I’m loving it. I have a few shows that I’ve just dropped out of busy-ness that I need to get back to, too!!

      Same here!! If I am crabby, you can totally see that on my face… and no one wants to be around that, y’know?! I so wish I had a better poker face.

      Lol we didn’t go to the Halloween party. πŸ˜› & yes! Thank you!! 4 years on the 1st. πŸ™‚

      1. Ha ha, they do not have meat. The trialed it for a while in the one near me that you can buy protein for an extra amount but it did not last long. They have a huge range of salads and usually some thick hearty soups, chili and a pasta dish so boyfriend won’t be hungry
