I unfortunately have no photos to accompany this post, because I’ve been horrible with taking pictures lately! This makes me sad, because I’m normally really great about it. Maybe next week!
This work week was fine, but went by SO slowly which killed my soul. We don’t really take many vacation days at my office, so it was brutal to have to work my usual Tuesday – Saturday schedule while it seemed like everyone and their mother had at least three days to a week off. We haven’t had a vacation since January 1st, and we will not have another until fourth of July. I am dead inside.
But this weekend made up for it! On Saturday night, Evan and I went to Carroll Place to celebrate our friend Julia’s birthday. It was really great to see Julia. I’d love to say that I had a fantastic time, but I ended up having severe anxiety and we left early. This might be the first time I’ve mentioned this here, but I do have moderate anxiety. It’s not severe because I’m fine 90% of the time, but I get panic attacks whenever I feel nauseous. Lately I’ve been getting severe panic attacks that can last for hours every time I go out to a bar (mostly at night once I’m back home). I used to think it was because my stomach reacted poorly to alcohol, but I didn’t drink at all this weekend. I think maybe it has to do more with taking cabs. I get car sickness in the back of cars (and you KNOW those taxi drivers are driving like maniacs and braking hard every five feet), so maybe I should avoid cabs. It’s not fun. I think this was the first time I had a panic attack in public, although I hid it pretty well. I’m still so happy that I got to see Julia.
I woke up the next morning feeling much better, and Evan and I went to celebrate Easter with my extended family members in Purchase, NY. For the past few years, we’ve gotten brunch at the same place. Since my parents moved to Florida, this was my first time hanging out with my family without them there. It’s really nice that my family is keeping me in the loop! I had a fantastic time and I laughed a lot — I cannot handle my family members at all, everyone is SO funny. And I got to hang out with my cousin’s twins, and meet her new baby. Evan and I had three plates of food. It was a really great time! I wish I took pictures.
When we got home, we did absolutely NOTHING for the rest of the day. We just ordered in and continued re-watching Game of Thrones, and I feel asleep on the couch. It was absolutely fantastic. Sundays are my favorite day of the week.
But I hate Mondays. I always get a serious case of the “Monday” scaries, since I go back to work on Tuesday. Today I already did some cleaning, and I’m going to try to ignore the fact that it’s snowing, go food shopping, and maybe try to do some yoga because I couldn’t sleep last night and my shoulders are insanely tense. This weekend went by TOO quickly. I’m not ready to go back to work!!!!!!
Update: this is my 100th post of this blog! Woo!!!!
