Weekend Coffee Post: January 29, 2017


Evening Bloggers! I hope everyone had a productive and/or relaxing weekend. I haven’t been feeling well and more or less tried to takr it easy this weekend. Honestly, I didn’t do much more than sit in my chair watching movies on Netflix. It was soothing though.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that this weather really sucks. It’s currently 51 degrees in my part of Texas. That might not seem cold to some, but for me, it’s unpleasant. I’m ready for summer.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that last week I had a panic attack while driving to pick up my Little People from school and had to call my Mister to come get us. I wasn’t sure how long it would last and I was terrified to drive with the kids in the car. It wasn’t a terribly awful panic attack, but I was pretty shaky and overall unbalanced. I’m sure it was a combination of things that brought it on. I’m still not feeling 100%, but I’m doing better than I was Friday.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I found out last week that my student counselor will be graduating soon and so if I want to continue counseling at the college I have been going to for counseling, I will have to start all over again with a new counselor. My current counselor assures me that she will only pick the best counselor and that she will give her detailed notes about our talks, but I’m not sure I want to start over with someone new. It’s taken me nearly five months to build the level of trust I have with my current counselor and I’m not sure I have the strength to go through that again. Alas, I have no health insurance and cannot go to a professional. It is what it is.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that a few weeks ago my supervisor named me as the new Associate Coach. He asked for volunteers for various positions and I’m not really the volunteering type. I enjoy what I do. My job is fairly simple and extremely soothing. It’s repetitive and I enjoy that. There are never any surprises and now I have been put in charge of showing new associates what to do, answer their questions, be friendly and available, all the things I was thankful my job previously didn’t involve. My position previously involved very little contact with other employees and now it seems this is about to change. It makes me anxious. 😕 Alas I am a team player and a people pleaser and my Boss along with several other teammates volunteered me for the position so… yeah.

If we were having coffee I would ask if I had mentioned that I bought a new journal… I lost count of how many that is in the past year and a half… I’m going to guess somewhere around ten-ish… I haven’t stayed consistent so far, mostly because I haven’t been feeling well. I also haven’t written anything in quite some time, but I have been reading quite a bit this weekend and actually finished a murder mystery. Maybe it’s considered a thriller. I’m not really sure. I really liked it though. It was a good story.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I’ve been staying as consistent with checking my emails as I can between not feeling well, taking care of three children, my Mister and our new puppy. I’ve read some wonderful posts, posts that have given me glimpses into the lives of bloggers I love to read the fictional words of, words that allow me to catch glimpses of dreams and desires, tidbits about the happenings in everyone’s lives. Reading everyone’s posts helps me to not feel as disconnected as I have been the past week or so. Your words matter to me. 💖

Anyhow, that’s all I’ve got for tonight. I hope everyone is doing well and is able to be productive in their writing and daily lives this week. 🙂
