If We Were Having (a Quick) Coffee – Falling Behind at Work and Messy Birthday Plans

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I was sorry that I couldn’t stay long. This weekend is the beginning of the many birthday celebrations and today I am visiting with family for the celebration of both mine and my moms.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that so far every time I have made plans for my birthday they have not worked out. I wanted to throw a party at a place I like that has food, darts, billiards, and a bar. Unfortunately they wanted a substantial amount of money for the event. Much, much more than I thought a 30th birthday party was worth.

Because of that I now have to celebrate with all of the groups of people in my life separately. My mother and sisters, my father and brother, my in-laws, my cousins, and my friends, not to mention my girlfriend.

Speaking of which, I had a great time celebrating with my girlfriend yesterday. She felt bad because I had been so disappointed in the event falling through and then tickets to the movie I wanted to see were sold out. It was the 30th anniversary showing of The Breakfast Club so there wasn’t going to be another chance. She wanted to make things better and took me out to brunch, then shopping, then dinner.

It was pretty much the most amazing day I’ve had in a long, long time.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that this past week rough. I had so much work to do and me and my co-workers weren’t getting along and I got behind in my writing.  I forgot that there was so much work to be done and I didn’t plan ahead. I tried I really did but I got overwhelmed and shut down.

In addition to that there was so much bickering going on around me that I couldn’t think straight. I couldn’t get my work done and I couldn’t get any writing done. Thank God for having to wake up earlier in the morning or else I wouldn’t have been able to get anything accomplished.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had planned on taking the day off tomorrow, but then I had planned on going in, then I decided again to stay home. I hate to take off work but since there were so many issues at work last week and so much to catch up on I have decided I should stay home.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had better go now. I have to try to visit with family, write a few A to Z Challenge posts, and work on a few things for the day job. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
