I spent a lot of time worrying and stressing this weekend even though there were many marvelous things happening.
I was somehow blinded by:
what I wanted–right then and there,
what wasn’t working,
cleaning up messes,
unanticipated shenanigans late into the night when I had articles due,
a blog transfer that isn’t going so smoothly…mainly due to the fact that apparently I was sent an e-mail in February of last year with information needed for the transfer that I don’t even remember receiving. (< seriously??)
There is something I am definitely still working on: being flexible. I have come a long way, but there are still those times when I should be focusing on the positive instead of letting the negative cloud my mind. So if you don’t mind, I am going to practice this positivity right now!
My weekend was filled with:
Dave decided he wanted to make steak fajitas from scratch (seriously–he even made the seasoning from scratch) and holy cow did they turn out great! It took approximately half of the game to make them and the second half to clean it all up; it was serious business.
We also tried a new restaurant, Lakes Tavern and Grill where I got “The. Best. Burger. Ever.” I even made a pumpkin spiced skillet cookie with cinnamon glaze.
We had a friend come over who is also from Nebraska for the game and to help us eat the fajitas. Then we forced him into watching The New Girl with us. (I cannot get enough of that show!) After that we went to that new restaurant with a couple who was in town. They came back to our apartment where we played the Big Bang Theory board game, watched way too many YouTube videos and ate my delicious dessert.
Great football game. (Go Huskers!!)
Seriously, how awesome is it when your team is doing well?? As a Nebraskan, I am required to follow the Huskers no matter what (I think it’s somewhere in the state laws), but it was so fun watching the good plays and the “sacks” (I now know what a “sack” is). It also makes me feel more at home knowing that family in friends back in good ol’ Nebraska are watching the game at the same time. So cheesy, but so true!
A glorious walk on a gorgeous day.
Dave walked my normal trail with me for the first time since we have moved here. We moved here in June, by the way. I was excited to show him the new trail I found a couple of weeks ago until I realized that my “old” trail was new to him! It was a lovely fall day and I really enjoyed spending that time with him getting some exercise in the fresh air and being silly together.
So here’s to having a marvelous Monday and looking on the bright side of things!
Side note: if anyone can help me out with my Blogger transfer issue, it would make my day even better!! Basically we are just trying to figure out how to get my admin info without that original e-mail.
