My Best Sunday

Last week was just pure crap.  No way to sugar coat it.  More ridiculous games are being played and I have let it eat me up.  I'm frustrated in myself because I've let the stress just chomp away at my insides.  I wish so badly that I could take my own advice and step away.  I wish so badly that I could not let it destroy me and make me cry. 

But I’m me.  For better or worse, that’s just not how I roll.

However, Sunday was a different story.

For the most part.

When I went to my car to leave, it was broken into.  For the second time in a little over a year. 

But I have no idea, as was the case last time, how it happened.  Because nothing was broken.  My car has automatic locks.  So even if I forget to lock it, which I never do but let’s pretend, it locks by itself.  {So annoying when bringing in groceries.}  But I came out and stuff was everywhere inside.  As I keep about five random CD’s and a stack of McDonald’s napkins and not much else in my car, nothing was taken.  But it was still really strange.

Dealing with it made me late but it didn't dampen my day too much.  I was then off to celebrate Alpha Gamma Delta’s International Reunion Day with my local chapter.  It’s been 14 months since I was last there.  For seven years I barely went four days between visits.  I was a bit nervous to go back, but I have to say it was so amazing!  I loved seeing my advisor friends and catching up.  The time away from the mix has been so healthy for me.  {Though the irony is not lost on me that I stepped away from that to focus on JL only to realize I needed to get the heck out of shady dodge this year.  If I wasn't still crying I would be laughing.}  Tip to tail it was a lovely event. 

And then I was off.  The day was…wait for it…sunny and…warm.  Together.  Sunny AND warm.  Holy moly!  It seems that spring popped into town yesterday.  Is she here to stay?  Who knows.  But it made running errands so much fun!  I felt like I got five times as much accomplished simply because of the amazing weather.  Good music, cheerful sunshine and a Mickey D’s Diet Crack…and these are a few of my favorite things!

When I got home, I cleaned and organized.  I transplanted all of my tomatoes to pots!  {Will finish transplanting everything else this week.}  I took the longest and best walk with Sadie that we've had in six months.  Then I worked out.  And at the end of it all, I watched Call The Midwife.

Seriously…the best day! 

Nothing major happened.  But maybe that’s the point.  It was just simple and productive and light-hearted.

I needed that day so badly.  My cup feels …well maybe not full…but certainly less empty. 

I’m even blogging.  I mean…hello…long time no chat.

I need more weekends like this one.  More Super Sundays to soak up the sunshine and get boxes checked off my to-do list.

My Sunday was awesome.  How was yours?

My Sunday kind of sucked. I was hungover and got stuck on the bus on the way back from NYC, but my Saturday rocked! Glad you can be in your happy place again!

It was a decent day here on Sunday too, it actually felt like spring, so we made margaritas to go with dinner! Glad to hear you had a great day, we all need a pick me up like that. I hope all the other crap resolves itself soon. (((hugs)))

I hate that about your car. I am glad you still had fun that afternoon.
