  • I total get what you're saying. I've felt that way pretty much entire life. I'm really good one on one...... but bring in a 3rd person and the dynamics get all weird for me. I get really jealous, have a pity party - the whole thing. I've had "friends" who would forget to pick me up for things.......... or say they would come over and then never show up. That's not a real friend, and someone I'd rather not hang around with.

    It isn't very nice of them excluding you........... if it were me, I'd find new friends to hang out with. Hope that doesn't sound too harsh - but if the relationship isn't close to 50/50 then its not worth it. Stop calling and see what happens.

    • I'm new at this too. There is an element of roller coasterdom (is that even a word) as we come off sugar and grains....it may last longer than a couple of days. Mine has. Every time
      I sneak a little sugar it's worse. I agree with the Whole 30, my efforts can't be diluted at the beginning. Just hold on, it's worth it.

      • Just got a call for a job interview next week. It's for the budget analyst position. *fingers crossed*

        • here's hoping!
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

            Tomi, you're absolutely right, but it's impossible to avoid them. One is the future spouse of a pit crew member and the other is family.

            • well, that makes it tough. Maybe when you're with them you could think of them as sorta just acquaintances....... you know, with no expectations for a real friendship.

              • I fell off the wagon this weekend. Went to a graduation party and broke my detox with potato salad and barbecue pork. Then they passed out cake and I chose to have some. Holy balls my stomach was SO upset after that. Sour sour sour! All that sugar nearly killed me. And then yesterday my gut was in turmoil... Back at it today.

                Headed to the gym at lunch today. I need to get back to regular movement. I know it'll make me feel better both mentally and physically.

                I realized last night that this Thirty-One thing is getting CRAZY! I initially made a plan to do 2 parties per month and right now I have SIX scheduled for June. 2 in-home parties (one is already past) and 4 catalog parties. Holy crap! On Friday, a gal approached me at the track and said she'd like to have a book party. Then a gal I'd sent a catalog to (at her request) asked if she could have a book party too. Then I have a vendor fair (which I'm treating as a book party) and I have the Summer Six Pack thing going right now too - with more than 6 people saying they're interested. I'm trying to determine how I can do it with more than 6 people... All in all, this month's Thirty-One activities has the potential to bring in $900 extra for us this month... this is huge and way more than I ever expected!

                In any event, I'm busy! So glad Brady's got only one day of ball games this week! He's got a double header on Thursday. Should make for a really tired young boy.

                He started College for Kids today. He's taking Mudworks - a building and fabricating class, Science Rocks - a class about the sciences (chemistry, physics, natural sciences), and (I think it's called) Environmental Explorers - a class that will have him outside examining bugs and other life forms. I'm really excited for him. I think he'll love it.

                Busy weekend but didn't get nearly as much stuff done as I would have liked. Brad worked on Saturday, then we went to the graduation party Saturday evening. Sunday morning was Father's Day stuff, then groceries, then laundry, housework, meal prep, etc, etc, etc. I could have really used a nap yesterday. Today I'm really tired, but I think I'll survive.

                I have a job interview on Thursday for a Budget Analyst position. It would be an immediate promotion to GS-09 (likely at the same pay I'm getting now as part of the temporary promotion I'm currently on), with promotion to GS-11 in a year or two. The first year would be spent getting trained up and familiar with the job, laws, etc. My fingers are definitely crossed for this one!

                My Monday started out rough. I hope everyone else's has been smooth and easy.

                      • Jenn Awesome news on the 31 parties! Hope it all works out and you see that $900 bonus money! Yeah!

                        I fell off the wagon too............. curry and rice yesterday - and face plant in the cookie container! No ill effects except for a very bloated mid-section.

                        I'm vowing to be 100% Monday-Friday -- and give myself just a slight bit of wiggle room over the weekends. I think that might be a good approach for me.

                        Hope the job interview goes well - I think you'd be great be that position as much as you love crunching numbers!

                          • The house was starting to get out of control again, so I took action yesterday. I cleared 1/2 the counters in the kitchen of their clutter (kids papers, little scraps of paper trash, cookbooks, etc) and swept the kitchen floor. I got all the dishes washed and the stuff in the drainer that I'd handwashed put away. I got the kids to pick up their stuff in the living room and vacuumed the floor. Tonight I think I'll work on the dining room. I have 4 or 5 baskets of laundry stacked in the dining room. Before you cringe, the clothes are folded - just not put away. I want to tackle that tonight. Yesterday I cleared the kids' dresser drawers and closets of any clothes they don't wear or don't fit - now I can fill it up with clothes that fit and get worn so I can take a better inventory of what they need. I know Brady needs shorts. We usually recycle at least one pair a week after closely inspecting it to ensure it's not filthy (hey, I don't wash my jeans every time I wear them, or my work pants - as long as there's no visible dirt on them, I rewear them. No reason my kid can't do the same). All the laundry is washed and dried with the exception of the sheets on Makenna's bed which I had to wash this morning b/c she'd peed the bed... *sigh* They're in the washer waiting patiently for someone to toss them in the dryer.

                            Tonight, like I said, I want to put those clothes away and finish folding whatever might remain (very little), clear the clutter off the sideboard in the dining room, take the card table and chairs back to MIL's house, then sweep the floor. Once I have all that done and two kids in bed, I will probably mop the floors.

                            Then I will feel like the house is back under control again.

                            • I figure as long as do a couple things every day - I will stay in pretty good shape............ that being said, I have no kids at home, and now only one cat to feed and clean up after. The house is staying amazingly clean and organized these days!

                              • I can completely get that. I had friends over for 2 days! Only 2 days, and of that 2 days, we spent probably about 24 hours not at the house and they STILL messed it up. A bit. It's fixable haha. But still, not having people around, when they got there, they asked if I had just cleaned it for them or hired someone to (I have a bad habit of hiring cleaners... Waste of money), but truth be told I hadn't! I had just maintained it for the past month and it was super easy...

                                Laundry is still a pain to me for some reason. It's so easy, but I just HATE it. I would cook, clean EVERYTHING else, do all the yard work, and watch the kids for my wife while working a full time job... Just to not have to do laundry (naturally this is a hypothetical situation, as the wife and kids are also hypotheticals).

                                Anyways, yeah... Ugh... Stupid friends messin' up my HOME!
