I could've sworn today was Friday. Bummer.
Long ago, I was a serious Negative Nelly. And an unpleasant person to be around. I wasn't happy unless I could find something to bitch about. One day, way back in college, a co-worker and semi-friend gave me a wake up call. He told me I'd never get anywhere if I didn't change my attitude. With way more words and in his pervasive jokester way. I looked at myself and my life, where I was and where I wanted to be, and l changed my attitude. Oh, I still get cases of the negatives from time to time... who doesn't? But I am a way happier person. Now, there's a negative person in the building where I work. Not a co-worker, but I see her from time to time and it seems like she's always bitching about something. I see a bit of my old self in her and I don't like it. I'm using it, though, to make sure I stay on a more positive track.
Toxic people... Ugh. They aren't who the mainstream want you to believe they are.
Anyway, let's be happy. Let's be positive. Spread that shit everywhere. I think the next time I encounter the negative, I'm going to positive all over it. Say 'isn't it a BEE YOU TEE FULL day?'. Or something. I have to work on my delivery.
Hubs is driving me to work today so he can take my car in to get the new squeaky brakes replaced by newer not-squeaky brakes. Warranty work. Yay. And thus will end the brakes saga that's been going on for-EVER. (Okay, so mainly just a lot of this year. It just feels like forever. First, the old brakes squealed because they were going bad. Then the new brakes squeaked because they weren't adjusted right, supposedly. Now, they just squeak because they were manufactured with a flaw. Derp.) Anyway, three cheers for Hubs! And fingers crossed the mechanics get it right this time.
I don't have to pack a lunch today because the office is buying lunch. Yay. I guess it's a kind of thank you for the good job we're doing.
It's finally cool enough for me to wear all the old work clothes that have been hanging in my closet for ages. Yesterday, I pulled out a sport jacket (blazer?) that I didn't even remember owning. Once I brushed the dust off the shoulders, it was quite nice. Just your basic black blazer. I also have one in dark blue with burgundy accents. And a gray one. And a black one with light nubbies. And a tan and black one that's done in a very tiny plaid. Dude, I was all about the blazers 20 years ago. Thank goodness they're back in fashion. I'd wear them even if they weren't, though. They're my style. But the 20-yr-old in the office assures me they're very cute, so I'm hip. Or 'gooch', as the kids these days are saying.
Okay, it's 7 o'clock here, which means I should probably get moving in a workerly direction. Have a great day. And remember to stay positive!
