I am so exhausted today that I fell asleep in the train on the way home from work. I missed my stop and woke up in another state. I woke up in Stamford, CT, okay it is only 30/40 minutes from my home in NY, but still, at the end of a long day at work all I wanted to do was get home and not have to 40 minutes past my home, then have to wait 20 minutes for the next train back.
Luckily my co-worker had given me a loaf of Irish soda bread (which I am nuts for lately), so enjoyed my train ride back eating bread – I had to do something not to fall asleep again! Plus lately if I go more than 3 hours without eating I go nuts. The bread he gave me looks exactly like the one in this picture.
I am a bit down that I was not called upon to volunteer on Saturday. I had pretty much my heart set on volunteering every Saturday for the rest of my life. I love the cleaning and gutting of the houses, I love manual labor. I am not sure why I was not asked to go. I had sent an e-mail and didn’t receive a reply. Since the person in charge knows my intentions I felt weird contacting her again. I hate being pushy about anything. I know that not being a good worker is not reason they haven’t called, as a matter of fact, I was singled out as working too hard in a smelly storage shed. Perhaps they thought I was a show off! 🙂 oh well, I am sending another email tomorrow asking about next Saturday. If I don’t hear anything I am looking for agencies to contact, or perhaps I am going to go out knocking on doors and offering help.
Sunday I went to The Radio City Christmas Show. The man I met on E-harmony ( from this post http://blessedwithastarontheforehead.com/2012/05/29/first-e-harmony-date/) came to his farm in upstate NY and stopped in NY City to take me out. He knows we are just friends but I think that he is hoping that things will change. I don’t see how. I don’t see how can chemistry magically appear. We do have a great time together, but I am not sure if continuing the friendship will only give him false hope. And the last thing I want to do is hurt anyone.
The show was great, the Rockettes rocked! I was seated in the same row as Jimmy Fallon. Some people were going nuts because of him and asking for autographs, pictures, etc. I am thinking: what is the big deal he is just a human being, it is not like he is Ben Afleck, in which case I would be going nuts!
My co-worker is on vacation so things are busier than usual for me. We are also having to deal with a lot of new regulations in our industry. We under the wire, in danger of having our doors closed come 2013. Yep, a bit stressing!
But in all the stress, I am dreaming about a skiing vacation. To feel that I am close to going skiing I went ahead and bought myself skiing boots. I am like a child, every now and then I open the box and look at them!
I was going to go somewhere close by in the Northeast, but I will have to rent a car, so it seems simpler to just jump on a plane. Since I am going to Colorado in February, I am thinking either Utah or Canada in January, but there are so many choices. (suggestions on good (cheap) resorts for beginners are welcomed and appreciated 🙂 )
One of the problems with singlehood is when you see a great vacation deal and you are ready to buy and then you read the small print that says: double occupancy! I saw this great deal on this luxury hotel in Whistler, almost too good to be true, I tried to book it and there it is, that double occupancy requirement to mess things up. 🙂
You know you are desperate when you consider putting an ad on craigslist for a travel companion. 🙁
Got run, I want to get to bed earlier. I don’t want a repeat of falling asleep on the train tomorrow… and the sooner I go to sleep, the sooner I can get up and have Irish soda bread with coffee. I am so blessed and happy!!
