Hey everyone, wanted to check in and let ya all know I’m still alive and kicking over here.  Slowly but surely, every day I start to feel a little better, and I officially haven’t cried since Thursday.  Three days is a major accomplishment when you take into consideration that for those two weeks I was crying every day.  We still have no resolution in terms of the mortgage, and getting my name off of it, so that is just hovering in a cloud of dread over me, but hey that’s life.

Instead of sitting in my house with a straw in a wine bottle, I’ve been out doing things to keep myself occupied.  On Thursday night, my lovely sister-wife Kacy was kind enough to meet me for happy hour at the new Buffalo Wild Wings that just opening in Ballston.

Fiver hours, and about 6 of those giant beers later, we called it a night.  I woke up on Friday morning feeling less than stellar, probably more to blame on the two glasses of wine I indulged in when I got home than the beers, but still made it through a terrible and busy work day.  I’m too old to party hard two nights in a row, so despite a post-work nap I couldn’t pull myself together for Friday night and instead spent it in my glasses on the couch watching the Opening Ceremonies.

I had some errands to run on Saturday, and actually put some effort into my appearance instead of running out in workout clothes with my hair in a ponytail.  Hey ya never know, right?

Please excuse my dirty mirror, I have since windexed it

My errands included a trip to the Apple store to see why my iPod won’t stay charged and a trip to Barnes and  Noble to see why my NOOK won’t turn on.  Come on electronics, get it together.  I am now the owner of a new (but exactly the same) iPod and a NOOK that is charged for now.  I then spent a few hours on the couch with an ice cold beer and the Olympics before cleaning up a bit to head out for a night on the town.

Saturday night was a lot of fun, despite a broken Tory Burch flip flop and blister the size of Montana.  It started out with dinner and drinks with my roommate, Adrienne, at the Green Turtle and ended at a co-workers birthday celebration at Union Jacks.  I did some dancing, a lot of drinking, and a lot of sarcastic mocking to people too drunk to realize it.  Also, it’s really funny when a 21 year-old hits on you, and then his eyes bug out of his head when you tell him you’re 27.  I thought he was literally going to fall over.  Kids.

Anyway, so that was my week/weekend.  Now to get through another week.  If people would stop getting engaged and posting it on Facebook that would be great.  I saw four engagement announcements over the weekend.  Four!  Cool it people, don’t you know I just got dumped?

  1. I feel like the older I get, the more “babies” hit on me when I go out. Cougars are totally in, I guess.

  2. You look SO cute!!! 🙂 (Sometimes it’s worth it to get it together for errands because it’s true, you never know. I met an actor in a grocery store once, which turned into a solid 1 and a half dates. Yep.)

    It sounds like things are on the up and up 🙂 Keep up that momentum!!

  3. Everyone is so young at real bars now. It’s depressing. That’s another reason I mainly stick to happy hours and dinner drinking.
    I had so much fun Thursday! And I love that blue shirt. So cute.

  4. I’m glad you’re starting to feel a bit better. Getting hit on by youngins never hurts either. A couple months ago, some kid from my high school thought I was my brothers YOUNGER sister. I loved him. 🙂

    Also, that blue shirt is adorable. I love it!

  5. I like that you brought the ladies out for a night on the town. No wonder the youngins’ came a-calling 🙂 RAWR!

  6. I don’t mind when the kiddos think I am as old as them. The day that stops is the day I cry. A lot. 🙂 Being 29 and mistaken for 21/22 is a huge ego boost. And you looked hella fab this weekend, miss!

  7. You look AMAZING 🙂 so happy that you are feeling better, and there is nothing wrong with getting hit on my a much younger man, I married a man 8 years younger then me and it’s the best 🙂

  8. Hottie.

  9. Glad you are getting out there and enjoying life. 🙂

  10. Glad you’re getting out and not sitting at home! I think the only way to move on is to keep living life, so good for you 🙂 btw, all the places in your pics are in my neighborhood, so hopefully Arlington will keep you distracted!
