I don’t know whether the people at work are playing games or not. The good news is that it looks like I’m NOT working on Saturday. Can I get an Amen? I can finally take the test for my class this weekend because I’m not going anywhere on Sunday. Hallelujah! Shouldn’t this be in the ‘Plans for the weekend’ section? Lol, I’m just so excited after the craziness of last week and weekend.
UPDATE: *^%$. It now looks like I am working on Saturday. I’ll be helping out another department. And you wonder why I think someone at work is reading this blog. Hmmmm.
We had a three-day break from training, and I didn’t really enjoy it. I miss being in training every day. No one told us we would have breaks. I’m sure I will wish for a break when we are in training daily in April through June. That test!! OMG. I needed an 85 to pass. I made an 88. I barely made it. That ish was hard. I don’t know how I passed. I could only get 5 answers wrong. I straight up guessed on two questions.
I never did an update on my carpal tunnel syndrome. Well, what people said on the internet about wearing a brace is true. The articles said that wearing a brace can “cure” CTS. I didn’t believe that because I was in so much pain. I didn’t believe something so simple could “cure” it. I don’t even have to wear my brace every day. Sometimes I even skip a week of wearing it, but that’s probably not wise. Sometimes I feel pain, and I know I need to wear my brace that day. And I got my braces from Amazon. No custom-made braces and it still worked.
I put cure in quotes because as far as I know, I still have CTS. The brace just helps. I’m pretty sure it’s not a cure. If I went two weeks without a brace, the pain would be back.
I did something nuts. What else is new? I told my mom that I wouldn’t be available from June 15 – June 17, but I didn’t explain why. I’m sure she is going to ask why eventually. Sigh. In case you don’t know, those are the dates of my getaway from DC. Btw, I incorrectly assumed the tiny house/cabin would be in Northern VA. Nah, it is near Shenandoah National Park. It should be really nice. YAY for getaways. 🙂 I’m so cheesy.
I forgot to mention how the work meeting went. I didn’t have to talk! This probably won’t last forever. Everyone else had so many complaints about training, I didn’t have to contribute.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Ellie Goulding, Rachel Platten, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Ella Henderson, Broods, Brandi Carlile, Kesha
I’m in love with the new Ellie Goulding single. I don’t know how anyone can hate this song:
TV of the week: Alias Grace, My 600lb life, basketball
Movie of the week: none
STOP THE MOTHERFUCKING PRESS! How did I not know that my favorite man, Michael B. Jordan is going to be in a movie based on one of my favorite books of all time? Too bad it is on HBO. I’m sure I will be able to watch it eventually. Here is a part of the trailer for Fahrenheit 451.
I’ve loved Michael B. Jordan since I went to the theater to see him in Fruitvale Station. I don’t go to the movies anymore. That’s another entry for another day. Very excited to see this movie in the comfort of my home…one day. I’ll probably get an HBO free trial when the movie comes out.
Podcasts of the week: Joyce Meyer, Fresh Air, The Kate & Mike Show, Pop Shop
Books of the week: Now reading –
- All-American Murder: The Rise and Fall of Aaron Hernandez, the Superstar Whose Life Ended on Murderers’ Row by James Patterson and Alex A. (almost done)
- Uninvited: Living Long When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely by Lysa TerKeurst
- Bliss More: How to Succeed in Meditation Without Really Trying by Light Watkins (I really need this book).
I’ve decided I’m going to only read books I’m passionate about for the rest of the year. So there will probably be more 5 star books than usual. I’ve stopped reading so many books these past couple of weeks because I wasn’t captivated. I want passion!!
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Get To Work Book
Plans for the Weekend: Just chilling. Not really. I wish. I’m going grocery shopping on Saturday if I don’t have to work. It should be a quick trip because I don’t have a lot to get. Then wait for it…I’m going to stay home all day Sunday. I will probably take my test for my course because I’ve been MIA. I don’t want to hear from my instructor. I think she’s given up on me. I’m cool with that.
I hope the Nor’easter won’t hit us too hard. It is supposed to be very windy. But we aren’t getting snow or rain. I already picked my trash can and some trash off the ground due to winds. As long as my house and car are okay, I’m fine.
I’m hoping to stay in all next weekend. I don’t care if I have to work as long as I don’t have to leave my house, I’ll be happy.
Thanks for reading. I really appreciate ya for checking in! Have a great weekend. 🙂
