Special Day

I have been looking forward to this day all month.  I was really excited to come into work, until no one mentioned anything to me about today.  What's so special about today you ask?  Well it's my 8 year working anniversary.  I've been at this same job for 8 years.  I did start earlier this year to get my paralegal degree but time, money, energy, etc. have all played a part in me not actually getting it when I would have liked. 

In other news, it's finally raining.  After it being dark, windy, tornado watches, and such, it's finally started raning.  At 4:30 this morning I woke up to what I thought was the bathroom sink being left on and water running all over.  I was a little hestitant to walk in there but when I flipped on the light, I discovered that it was raining outside and the noise I was hearing was the rain coming off the side of the house and collecting in a puddle under the bathroom window.  Considering I shouldn't have watched The Strangers, so close to bedtime, I probably wouldn't have been phased by the sound.

Yeah, I made a dumb mistake last night before bed.  I like scary movies, but only when it's light outside.  Strange I know, but last night The Strangers was on FX.  Me, thinking that since I've seen the movie, it wouldn't bother me, walked into the living room at 10 last night asking the hubs if he was ready for bed because I had just finished watching a movie I knew I shouldn't have and now I was scared to go to bed by myself.  Needless to say I had to wait 30 minutes before he would come back there and then he kept messing with me, asking me questions about the movie, etc.  I know I shouldn't do things like that but I'll never learn my lesson.

On the running front, I'm happy to say I've ran almost 9 miles this week.  This afternoon, if it's not raining, I plan on running 3 miles, then Saturday I'll run 7 miles.  That will round out this week at a little over 18 miles.  I'm feeling good and am excited about how well this week went.  I know I didn't get to abs class or spin class Tuesday, but I'm going to abs class today and then running this evening, so missing one day isn't too terribly bad.

Well I hope that everyone has a great Thursday.

See ya tomorrow!!!!

  1. I don't do scary movies. I always want to and I always try to, but I just can't, I'm too much of a wimp. I scare myself enough as it is, I'd be a real basket case if I watched scary movies!

  2. That movie is the only one that really gets to me. It's freaky because I can see it becoming real. I kid you not, it took me almost all day to watch it the first time I saw it. I was home sick and let's just say there was a lot of pausing and flipping from the DVR to regular t.v. while trying to watch it.

  3. I was in a hotel room by myself when channel surfing and I saw The Strangers. I stopped for a second then thought "this is a really bad idea" and decided to watch Halloween instead. Somehow that was better because it wasn't about a couple in a hotel room!?!? Love scary movies and I have been a freak about Fear Fest on AMC!
