It's a Better Day

Waking up was the hardest thing to do this morning.  But a few things got me going...
As much as I wanted to, I couldn't hide and give up on the day.
What got me going: 1) Before Chris left he was extra sweet while I was still wrapped up in blankets, not wanting to go anywhere. 2) Reading encouraging comments from fellow bloggers who some I probably freaked out with my anger and sadness (sorry guys). 3) My mom.  She sent me adorable jokes that were made up by adorable little ones... 

"Where do sailors take their baths?".... my inappropriate response (I'm sure you can all take a good guess at what it was),  answer: "In a tubmarine" Ha. Ha.

Small photographs as my face is covered in pimples and I have gone back to not wearing any make-up.  Stress is the worst thing for my skin. 

Today is better.
I am still stressed out, but maybe it's the holidays... Maybe it's my shrink pushing me to work really hard on my issues. Excuses. Excuses. Excuses...

I took things slowly today, took breaks and did a lot of deep breathing.

Positive things that has happened recently:

~*~ Had a great coffee date with an old friend, Dave.  We've been friends since high school but went our separate ways after college... for no reason in particular.  It's been about three years since he's moved to Ottawa, and last week was the first time we've have gotten together to catch up.  Like good friends, it has felt like no time has passed since we have last hung out. 

~*~ For followers, I have reached my favorite number: 17 :) For whatever reason, that made me happy.  Thank you Ashley from Dare to Unravel! If you haven't checked out her blog, do it.  She's a great writer, has an awesome sense of style and a lot of amazing art posted. 

~*~ I've successfully peer pressured a friend into blogging: YoungChronos from The World Through My Eyes.  That's not his real name, but I won't tell you his secret.  He's a great guy, like a big & older brother to moi, smart and so great to talk to.  There has been countless nights were we will talk about "what ifs" and theories of life. My favorite "what if" is the zombie Apocalypse... speaking of zombies... DUDE, you still have my book!  And we won't talk about how he cheated at a contest for leader of the survival group.  It's always fun times when Chronos is around.  AND Obviously I'm going to tell you all to check him out. 

~*~ There's an exciting Ottawa Fashion Bloggers dinner coming up next week.  Emily from Tinfoil Tiaras was a total sweetheart in setting it all up.  I'm so excited to meet all the beauties. Of course I'll be taking pictures and blogging all about it.

Side note: Spelling behaviour the American way always sits funky with me.... probably because I write out behaviour so many times a day.  For what reason? That's a secret :-p hehe

I'm excited for tomorrow.  It will be a wonderful craft day with a great friend, Mo.  We will be covered in glue and glitter by the end of the day.  Now... I am off to catch up one everyone's blog as I have been M.I.A. since my final exam is December 10th.  But Friday night & the weekend, I think it necessary to take long blogger & other breaks.

That's cool about the get-together. I love Emily's blog. Say hi for me.

Hang in there with the stress of school and the holidays. Things will feel better soon.
