Today was rough. I thought I was going to leave work early because I had a 2 hour meeting scheduled on my day off. But about an hour and a half before I was going to head out, the meeting got cancelled. I missed out on a nap.
I then went to a very low key bachelorette party. We sat around talking and sharing stories, eating, watching The Princess Bride. I had to call it a night very early on, but other people had work in the morning anyway. It was very nice to get out and hang out with friends.
Wow! 17 days of posts. I only missed 1 post, but made that up. I almost missed tonight’s post, too. I came home exhausted, got dinner, and then a friend came over to watch a movie with my finace and I.
Let’s just say, the first bit of The Conjuring 2 was scary, and it was made 10x scarier by our friend’s comments. Otherwise, it was a disappointing movie and I thought The Conjuring was scarier. I don’t get scared easily by horror movies. So far, out of the ones I have watched, Creep (2004), Sinister (2012), and The Conjuring (2013) got to me.
I am posting day 15 and day 16 tonight because I was so busy with laundry yesterday and had work last night. Then I had to be at work in the morning. On Sundays I usually come home, shower, and go straight to be so I can get at least 6 hours of sleep for my Monday shift.
However, I just discovered the 2017 Beauty And The Beast is on Netflix and I am distracted while writing this.
It’s Friday the 13th and it’s in October!!!! YAY! I have some errands and chores to do today so I wanted to get this post done before I do them. Since later I will be with friends and family watching Lore on Amazon Prime. It is based off of Aaron Mahnke’s podcast by the same name. Go check it out if you haven’t already. It’s spooky, which is great for October, and his voice is perfect for what he talks about.
I don’t have anything to report from today because I didn’t really do much. It was my day off from work and I spent most of it in bed due to terrible back pain. In fact, I am still in pain, but it isn’t as bad as it was earlier.
Yesterday, after I wrote my post, my fiance surprised me with 3 out of the 4 “Portal” Pop Funkos. That made me very happy since “Portal” is one of my favorite games and we collect Pop Funkos.
Today I had my annual review at work and got a raise. It went very well, and although my expectations for how much of a raise I was going to get was high, I am very happy with the praise that I got. Some of the things said was a surprise to me. I didn’t think anyone noticed some of the small things I did, but my manager did and that makes me feel good.
I briefly discussed a project with friends in one of my other posts. It’s really starting to come along and (hopefully) soon I can announce it and share it on my blog. I’m getting really excited and appreciate all the work that my friend have put into it.
Today was my first day back at work after a staycation and it feels nice to be home. I couldn’t wait to get home and start writing.
