Turn Around

The other side to one of those days, is that they sometimes turn themselves around. You can finally overcome that slump and decide that you're going to be in a good mood and not waste your day being grumpy and irritated.

Today is one of those days. One of the ones that turned around. The bf helped by making me smile (and, lets be honest, he gave me a piece of dark chocolate, who can't smile at that?) Got a few pleasant, not annoying phone calls, which always helps make me happier and less annoyed.

My mom also called, and we have the green light for the patio project this weekend, I am SO excited. The bf and I are going to buy all the materials after work. The plan is to seal and paint the wood down here, and we'll cut everything and build it up there. (with the help of my best friend Jasa of course) I think his gf Tenel is going to come hang out too, which should be fun. The bf and I are stopping at my aunt's house on the way up Friday night for the after-graduation party for my cousins. They're graduating from 8th grade this week, and since I can't make the ceremony I'll at least get to see them afterwards. We're bringing my grandparents and littlest brother home with us. It should be a lot of fun.

...later this evening...
Didn't have time to finish this at work, more on that later though. The bf and I spent about 3 1/2 hours at Lowe's getting all of the materials we need for the weekend. The poor bf was starting to get frustrated second guessing himself, but a wonderful worker came and helped us, and ended up saving us a good $200 at least with his experience and helpful suggestions. The bf felt much better afterwards. The main reason he was stressing? Because he wants this to be perfect for my family. Perfect. So we spent much more time than planned, but we got out for a grand total of $886 and some odd cents...the bf original priced it at $1200 or under. Not bad, eh? We got 10% from my opening a Lowe's credit card to pay for it...or rather, so I could purchase it and my mom can pay it bit by bit. The only other thing we have to get is the shingling-ish stuff for the roofing, which will be a finishing touch on another trip. I'm super excited, that was about the biggest purchase I've ever made, if you don't count my car...which I don't think is quite the same thing. I can't wait to go up this weekend!

Yay for moods turning around and days ending with kissing the most perfect guy around. I hope you all have had a wonderful Tuesday, and lovely evenings.

Glad to hear your having a better day and your mood is turning around. When I get in my "Moody Blues" days, I just want to be left alone until I feel better. But, it's not always possible. So then I just put on my "Smiley Face" and try to be as nice to everyone as I can;)

Hope your week-end with friends, relatives and BF go smoothly and lots of work gets done!!!
