Terrible twos

I took this hiatus because I was sick.  It was only supposed to last for a week, starting February 6 .  A chance to catch up on blogs while taking a break from my own.  Well, that was two weeks ago and this is the first post I've written since then.  A lot has happened in the past two weeks and instead of boring you with a few posts about the weeks that was, I figured a maybe not so condensed post might be more fun.  

Let's just start from the beginning.  I was sick.  OMG, I was sick.  It wasn't the flu, but I definitely was sick.  When I went to the doctor, she even was shocked that I was breathing so well because of how swollen everything was.  I have a nebulizer and I was using it religiously.  So, I missed two days of work, and went back on Wednesday.  That Thursday, I feel like I took a trip around the northern part of my state because I had three future job sites to visit.  That was fun, but it made for a long, medicated day.  However, during the long ride (because I was not able to drive), I was able to catch up on some posts and leave some comments!  That's always fun for me.  

Well, Thursday gets us to Friday.  I was so excited about Friday.  Seriously, I spent my entire day at work thrilled because of what was happening when I got off from work.  I was going to get something I have wanted for years and was just finally able to get - a dog!  She was perfect!!! A yorkie.  Sad part - I ended up having to take her back on Sunday (yes, a blessed 48 hours later) because my allergies didn't agree with her.  I was so looking forward to giving her a good home, but I know she's in good hands.  But, I do miss her so.  

In between that, I had to go check on my parents because they were both sick.  So, in total Saturday, I spent 4 hours on the road driving, still very much medicated myself.  But, I'm an only child and I needed to make sure my parents were OK.  It was just the right thing to do.  

Sunday was good.  I was able to get a pedicure.  Didn't get to go to my regular place because it was packed because I totally didn't think about people getting stuff done for Valentine's Day (we'll talk about that in a totally different post).  Basically, had to try a new place.  I was in there way longer than I expected, but those massage chairs were 

Then came Monday.  I don't dread Mondays.  Each day is a gift, even if it comes wrapped in a Monday.  But Monday of this week was a MONDAY!!!  Let's just say it like this, I spent my lunch break in my car crying instead of eating because I had an anxiety attack at work.  When I got home, I spent the next 3 hours trying to get back on track. I ate, cleaned up my kitchen, and organized my closet. However, I was so done with the day that I was in bed by 8:30.  It was some good sleep though! 

Sidenote: Now that I think about it, I've slept good all week!!!  Ok, let me get back to this regularly broadcast post. 

My anxiety attack took a lot out of me, but I decided to fight back.  I did kickboxing on Tuesday and Wednesday.  My body paid for it, but I also feel so good.  Maybe that's why I've been sleeping so well.  Thursday, my buddy had to come to my office for a class and that meant we got to go out for lunch.  Hadn't seen him in a few months and he always has excellent work stories.  

That leads us to today.  Yes, I know I skipped Valentine's Day, but like I told you earlier, that's a whole 'nother post!  Today was good.  My love started his new job, a group of us went out to celebrate my boss' birthday, and my day went by super fast without any madness and even ended with me getting a good laugh at my wall buddy running to the elevator because he thought I was going to let it close before he got on.  I'm not that mean.  

Let's see what tomorrow holds.  

What's been going on with you over the past couple of weeks?  Inquiring minds want to know!!!!

Save Yourself

I am so proud of myself.  I have a tendency to just want to help people, even if it hurts myself.  This year, I've made it a point to focus on self-care.  Not being mean or selfish, but I need to make sure Tameika is good first.  

A couple of weeks ago, someone in my life needed something.  They never asked, but they kept dropping hints about what they needed.  Last year, I would have just offered to help.  This year, that's not going to be the case.  Well, the situation has worked itself out.  That's a great thing.  

Honestly, even if the question would have been asked, I would not have helped.  Why?  I'm glad you asked...

It's because for the first time in a few years, I'm finally coming first in my own life.  I'm taking my life back and it feels so wonderful.  I hope this lasts and that the people around me support what I'm doing.  

I can't keep draining myself in order to support others.  Since I'm such an advocate for self-care, it's time f…

Days of family past

My final post of the year had some cool questions.  I'm going to use this post to answer those questions.  Do not worry, I'm not going to tell who asked what (because I want to protect you from the possible wrath).  I'm just going to answer them.

1 - What is your relationship with your cousin? I have no relationship with my cousin.  In fact, I reference this person as my dad's sister's child.  That relationship ended on August 21, 2017.
2 - What do you think caused this reaction from your cousin? Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  Of course, my parentals and I have talked at length about it and both told me what they believe to be the cause.  I would rather not say because I want to keep their lives as peaceful as possible and not have to deal with this particular person.  
3 - How do you feel about being around your cousin? I don't want to be around my dad's sister's child.  As far as I am concerned, this person told me exactly what they felt abo…

Year End Review - Edition 2017

This is typically the hardest post for me to write.  You would think I would be used to it by now since I do it every single year, but it doesn't get easier.  I truly think they get more interesting though.  And believe me, 2017 was one for the books.  But let's get to how amazing this year actually was.  

First quarter of the year is always a bit interesting because I get to enjoy Winter and my birthday!  A new person was born into the family and she was absolutely perfect.  She still is and I just enjoy her so, even though I don't see her often.  But what makes her so great to me is that she was born on my actual due date.  Kindred spirit, maybe?  And in thrilling fashion, I celebrated my birthday an entire usual.  It was fun times with my friends and I absolutely had a blast with my parentals.  
The second quarter was a bit quiet.  I finally came up with a blog schedule and I really needed that to happen.  That was also when I sort of regrouped and decided to t…
