I confess that I’m a ball of stress.

Normally, Friday is the day to start relaxing and unwinding.  Instead, I seem to be winding up!  And here’s why…

Friday confessional high heeled love

Linking up with Aubrey at High Heeled Love!

I confess…that I wish I didn’t become a ball of stress leading up to fun events.  But I do.  Especially ones that I help to organize, like our Canada Day Committee annual golf tourney tomorrow.  Wound up tighter than a bobbin.  You’d think after being involved in as many of these things as I have been over the years, I’d eventually relax.  *sigh*

I confess… the Sens probably aren’t helping me relax today.  It’s do-or-die time tonight.  I had such high hopes after they beat the Penguins in an exciting double-OT game 3.  But then game 4 was kind of a disaster.  7-3.  Yikes.  We’re back in Pittsburgh tonight with our playoff lives on the line.  I don’t handle that kind of tension very well.

never say die

I confess… that you can tell me over and over again that it’s just a game, but it doesn’t change a thing for me.  I’m a basketcase.

I confess… that it’s not normal to be already looking forward to Sunday.  Is it?  No, it is definitely not.

I confess… that usually, working out helps me to feel more calm.  But I got up earlier than normal to get my exercise out of the way today (with a busy evening of cutting grass, setting up for golf tourney, and watching hockey ahead of me after work today), and it did diddly-squat to settle my jangling nerves.  God love me.

I confess.. that this was the first time I got up earlier than usual to complete a work-out, and all it really did was reinforce the fact that I am soooo not a morning person.  It takes me a really, really long time to wake up in the morning, so I kind of felt more like a zombie going through the motions lack-lustrely than anything.

I confess… that when I hopped on the scales this morning, I was inwardly squealing with excitement to see that I’m creeping ever-so-close to that next “magic  number”.  Next week?  Maybe??  Eeeeek!!!

I confess… that I’m finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with Stephen King’s The Stand.  I think I’ve finally hit the last quarter.  I’ve only been reading it since February.  Sheesh!!  I’m actually finding it quite interesting, but it’s SO SO SO LONG!!!!  I have so many books on my shelf that I’m looking forward to reading… Soon.  Soon.

the stand

I confess… that I wish Mother Nature would figure her shit out.  It’s seriously freakin’ freezing out today.  It better not be this cold for golf tomorrow!!!  I mean, usually that’s the day I get my first sunburn of the summer!!!  It is supposed to be a sunnier tomorrow, but not so warm…sunburn is looking doubtful.

I confess… that I’m really going to try to golf more than five holes this year.  Maybe six.  I’m also going to try really hard to not get in trouble for driving my cart in places that carts aren’t supposed to go.  That’d be a first…

OK.  I think that’s all I’ve got for today!  Wish us luck with our tournament tomorrow, and …

Yes on the poor child is having to squeeze into cold weather clothes because it won't warm up enough for her to wear the warm weather clothes that will fit!

Have a great weekend!

Hope it's warm for you tomorrow. Good luck with the golf. The only golf I play is miniature golf. I can see the hole and there are no confusing clubs to figure out.

Jo said...

Hope your weather is warm and sunny tomorrow. And remember to have fun!

Nancy said...

I am sure the day will be a blast. I know Reg is really excited to be a part of it. Have fun, and wear sunscreen!

I hope that the golf tourney went well yesterday, and that there was no trouble with taking your golf cart into restricted areas.

Thanks for joining Friday Confessional this week. I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.

Good luck hitting the magic number! You can do it!

Mrs. Match said...

Yay, creeping closer to that magic number feels awesome! Sorry you've been stressed. Hopefully you had some time to relax this weekend.
