Hi there! Happy Friday!! I’m so glad that it’s finally Friday! This week went by awfully quick though so I’m not complaining. What are you doing this weekend? Tonight I have my work’s holiday party. They are letting us leave work at 3pm today to prepare for the party tonight. They are finally allowing us to bring guests after two years of not allowing us. I’m pretty excited because it’s being held at a really nice place. It should be a nice time. I’m looking forward to getting dressed up and having a nice night with some of my co-workers. I always find that it’s interesting to watch how people behave at work holiday parties. Something interesting always happens and I love hearing the stories the following Monday. I have no doubt that there will be stories to share from people on Monday. I’m hoping they have enough food. We had the party at this place three years ago and there was barely any food. People complained so I sure hope they fix the situation or we might need to stop to get something to eat after the party. Then on Saturday afternoon, we have a Hanukkah party to go to and on Sunday it’s my Dad’s birthday. So we are going out to dinner to celebrate. Overall, I think it should be a nice weekend and I’m looking forward to relaxing and catching up on my dvr shows too! My dvr is getting very filled up.
Yesterday after work, I picked up Melissa and we went out to run some errands. I had a few items to get for what I am making to bring to the Hanukkah party. We were going to actually make them last night but it was getting late and we just didn’t feel like it. So I think I will probably be getting up early Saturday morning to make everything before the party. Talk about waiting to the last-minute! We also decided to pick up food from Red Robin .
I went with my usual turkey burger that I get from there and for some reason they put some spicy sauce and it came on a different bun. It was terrible! Not to mention my stomach wasn’t too happy about what I ate. I was so disappointed and pissed off. I hate when you order something and spend money on it and it’s wrong. I can’t stand that especially since I enjoy going to Red Robin. GR!
Anyway, I have been wanting to write about something for a while now and I just haven’t got around to writing it. The weekend after Thanksgiving was my 10 year high school reunion. Ten years! I seriously cannot believe I have been out of high school for that long of a period of time.
That is almost what I felt like. For a while, I had my heart set on the fact that I wanted to go to my reunion. Then I saw who was rsvping to attend and I really sat down and thought hard about going. I feel as though I am not in the place where I want to be with my life right now. I have some things that I want to change and I am not ready to see those people who I went to high school with again just yet. I don’t think ten years has been a long enough time for me to accomplish all that I want to before seeing those people.
I was extremely shy and quiet all through high school despite the fact I participated in all of the musicals and choirs. Go figure. I have changed dramatically since high school. I am still a little on the quiet/reserved side but I have come out of my shell completely. I am not afraid to go up and talk to a stranger. Sometimes if I am in awkward situations I can be quiet but it’s nothing like how I was back in school.
Do I regret not going? No, especially since I saw some pictures on Facebook, and read some things. I’m actually happy that I didn’t go. I’m not ready yet. If my school has a 15 year reunion, I think that will give me enough time to change some things about my life that I want to talk about. So I will probably attend that one. A thing that is hard is that Mike and I both graduated high school the same year and from local high schools within 15 minutes of each other. His reunion was the same night as mine and he didn’t attend either. I have a feeling that our reunions will always be on the same night. So we are going to have to make the decision of who’s we go to. It’s going to be interesting.
Would you or have you gone to a high school reunion? I always thought growing up that I would because I remember seeing my parents go to theirs. I know that I will attend one in the future. I’m just not ready now and I accept that.
Well there you have it! My reunion story. On that note, I’m going to get started with my day. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!
