Sunday Sunshine

Hey chickens!  How was your week?  I hope it at least pretty decent, because mine was downright shitty.  Actually, it's been rather shitty for the past three weeks or so, but who's counting at this point.  

It's funny how you get really comfortable and are so happy when things are going smoothly, but when the smallest thing (or biggest thing) goes wrong it just throws you way off. That's me, though it may not be you.  When something goes awry, I pretty much shut down and feel paralyzed.  Now, this isn't in every aspect of my life, but I'm not one of you chicks who falls down and immediately gets right back up and keeps going.  Nosireebob, I will lay there for hours thinking about why I fell down, all the different avenues I can take in getting up, and what outfit I will wear with each option.  I wallow, scream, wail, I might take a nap.  And then I do it all over again.  Yes, friends, I am an "overanalyzer" (I know that's not a word), but that's what I am.  Is there a support group for this kind of thing?  I don't know if I would have time for it anyways, because it would probably take too much time away from my analysis.

In an effort to pull myself out of my funk, I decided to go un-casual on casual Friday.  In a sea of tee shirts, jeans, and flip flops, I stuck out like a nicely manicured sore thumb in one of my staple dresses from the mothership.  Now, I am never one to wear the aforementioned articles of clothing on Fridays.  My idea of casual is wearing flats, but I felt good and some good stuff happened.  My first boss in the mortgage business, an impeccably dressed, handsome man who became a wonderful friend and mentor, always told me that beautiful clothes breed success and he was right.  He also told me that if I wore pink moccasins in his presence ever again, he would fire me.  He was serious, too.  I still have those shoes in my closet as a reminder, but I will never wear them again.

On another note, you crazy folks have been hounding me to start an Instagram account, so your wish is my command.  Follow workdayweekend to join me in my day to day ridiculousness!
