Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 68

I already told you about my trip to Arizona. Besides that... it has been a pretty uneventful week. I have been really tired. I have been feeling a little under the weather, but not too bad and I have just been taking it easy since I got back. Work has been pretty crazy, a little bit stressful because of taking on new responsibilities without having the time to really train for it. I just try and take one day at a time though and not worry too much about things I don't really have a lot of control over. Its funny because I had another interview with my boss (we have them a few times a year to check up on how things are going and how you are doing with your goals and such) and he told me that we all handle stress very differently at work and he was very appreciative of how I handle stress aka I don't really stress out as much as my other co-workers. He asked me if I go home and vent about work. I told him no, once I go home I don't really talk about work nor do I really want to think about work. He was so shocked with amazement that I didn't talk about work at home AND I don't stress at work. I had never really thought about it... but unless someone asks me about work, what am I really going to say about it? Its not like anyone else is going to relate or care about the stresses that I deal with at work. I don't know. I would just rather not think about work once I leave work. When I get home I want to relax and have fun.

The only other cool thing that happened this week was on our drive back to Utah from Arizona, we we needed to fill up on gas. We ended up in this small town in between Vegas and Mesquite that I didn't even know exist because it is hidden far off the exit in the dessert. As we were filling up on gas this guy got out of his car to do the same. This guy looked EXACTLY like Hagrid. No joke. Huge, big beard. He just happened to be wearing overalls instead of Gamekeepers clothes. I tried to take a picture with my phone, but was not that successful. Sad, I know.

Well, since I don't have a lot to report about this week, I was looking through my regular blogs today and one of them posted a summer wish list. I thought that was such a cute idea that I thought I would do the same.  So here it goes.

My Summer Wish List includes:

Making my patio garden the most beautiful that it can possibly be and spend lots of time in it talking with friends, Dinner's, Breakfast, reading, etc...

LOTS of BBQ's.

Going on lots of night walks with friends.

Reading at the Park.

Watching More Sunsets.

Going Camping.

Lots of Bonfires with friends and eat S'mores.

Drink lots of fruit smoothies.

Go somewhere beautiful and paint.

Have more fun Girl's nights out on the town.

Tea Parties.

Star Gazing (Mountain man helped me start the summer accomplishing this already. Hopefully there will be more)

Watching movies and sleep overs in a fort.

Watching movies outside.

But most of all, relaxing!

I hope to accomplish all of this and photograph it all. I heart the Summer! So glad it is finally here. I feel like I have been waiting forever for it to come.

Sounds like a fun summer line up.
Nice job with the stress. You are good at letting stuff roll off your back.
That is so funny about the Hagrid guy!
