Humpday Confessions #3

Scrreeeeeech. What?

This is only my 3rd Humpday Confessions post? 

Coming up with the things I want to put in here is as second nature to me as counting the ounces of water I drink in a day (which isn't enough, people!!). When I looked at my list this week I realized that it was a little more ranty than I wanted to be today so you're welcome for scrapping those ideas and just ranting here in the very first one.

+ This weekend I got irrationally upset at Costco. It was a horrible personal experience and probably a bad idea to go on a weekend in the first place. From sample stands not being full, to slow walkers, to meat blood spilling on my hands when I was checking out some ground beef. Done. Over it. If another cart cuts me off I'm gonna scream.... internally. 





+ Ha-ha I feel so bad for the sorry sucker who has to share a bed with me next. After sleeping alone for 5 months I've had a great time getting re-acquainted with the starfish position and using all the pillows and all the covers. And also falling asleep to a bedtime playlist that soothes me. It's the little things. 



+ Attention span is close to zero these days. I get on a conference call, I sit in a meeting. I take notes, I make eye contact. Just having a rough time focusing, which makes me feel somehow like I'm not listening. Can I voice record all of my meetings and play them back just in case I missed something?



+ I never do my nails unless I have a date lined up or an important meeting. The rest of the work week is looking p-r-e-t-t-y easy at work so..... hey! Also, the color is Turquoise and Caicos by Essie.

+ I tried giving up chocolate for lent and I failed, okay? So - new thought is to give up chocolate *at work* since that's where all the magic happens chocolate tempts me anyway!


Come join Kathy while all the ladies spill their confessions!

hahah oh Costco, you can be both a joy and a terror. when it's empty and there are free samples galore, I'm in heaven. outside of that, it drives me insane.

i have a gorgeous and adorable pink polish ready to be painted as soon as this dumb weather gets a grip and stops being an asshole. IT'S SNOWING RIGHT NOW and tonight will be -26. WTF. yesterday was warm and glorious and sunny and magical.

i avoid costco anytime after 11am. i go there as soon as it opens to avoid all the morons because being there after 11am is not good for my rage.

thanks for linking up!

Essie is my favorite! Im such a brand snob. Whoops. Also all the yesses to the starfish. Im so used to a bed to myself o dont even want to share with anyone else now!

Lauren said...

Not my beloved Costco! But I feel you, it is a total zoo on the weekends. I try to just get in and get out. I need to spend time there on a weekday... maybe next week when I am off a few days for spring break. I am so wild and crazy, spending spring break at Costco, wow...

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

I go to BJs not Costco but same diff I think. I try to go during off hours or I can't handle the chaos.

Ashley - Married to the Game said...

I'm all about the starfish position. I can only do it when Kory is on the road, but it's better than nothing!

Jordan said...

I have also been feeling extremely unfocused! I have a long weekend coming up and I'm hoping I can get recharged and refocused.

Good luck with the no chocolate at work, that's the place I feel like I need it most haaaa. And love that polish! Gorgeous!

Slow walkers drive me crazy everywhere, but especially at Costco!

As a pilot, Andrew is gone a lot (ex. He hasn't been home for the past three days). A friend once said to me, "It must be so hard for you to deal with the fact that your boyfriend is gone all the time." My response was, "Are you kidding me? I get the bed to myself and I don't have to hear him snore! It's wonderful!"

Win.

Where is that cute sweater from? Love the nail polish and large coffee. I need to get my nails done- it always makes me feel more put together during the work week. And so many people at Costco need to get what they need and get out- stop lollygaggin' around!

lisacng @ expandng.com said...

Visiting from Kathy's link up! I know what you mean about busy supermarkets. And ewwww about the raw meat juice! I'd be over-the-top mad at that point! Hope next week is better for ya. (I complained about Wegman's in my confessions post. A store with a bad layout + too many customers. No thank you)

Helene in Between said...

now i want chocolate. --> this is me with my short attention span. and sometimes you just need to freak out.

Whitney Alison said...

Went to costco with my mom on sunday. I almost had a panic attack. What IS that? People were so aggressive and nutty. Over what? Bulk TP???? Pretty nails girl ;)

Tracey said...

Oh god, not meat blood spillage! So gross, so gross!!!!!

brooke lyn said...

meat blood on your hands... i bet you did.

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I love your nails AND ring! AND YOUR BALLSACK!

Melissa Suggitt said...

i just read brooke's comment and died. that is all.

MacKensie said...

Pretty sure that color is on my toes right now. BOOM. #twinning

Rachel said...

That trip to Costco sounds like my biggest nightmare!! And I used to record lectures in college, it was really helpful!

lil desiqua said...

I once was in a position where I had to record and transcribe every word from meetings... so I started spacing out on purpose so I wouldn't have to listen to the same things over again! Also, Starfish is my fave position.

Anna @ A Dash of Quirky said...

Fella and I do not sleep in the same room. He snores and I'm a light sleeper, I go to bed earlier and he stays up late. It's so not romantic, but what's less romantic is me nearly killing him in the night because he's woken me up. Homegirl likes her sleep - like I vaue it more than many other things in life lol!

Lions, Tigers and Fashion OH MY! said...

I hear ya! haha I have been home for a couple months and love sleeping alone, back to NY monday and sharing a bed with my bf :(

You had meat blood spill on your hands?? Oh my gosh, I would've thrown up in my mouth. Costco runs either go REALLY well or REALLY bad for me...and I never know what I'm gonna get until I'm inside. But those samples!!!

Kym @ Travel Babbles said...

lala love the nail polish! I just had mine painted lilac but turquoise is IT next time ;) xo

now i'm all worked up just from reading about your Costco frustration. Costco is hell on earth. who needs a gallon tub of capers, or 700 bars of ivory spring soap, or a lifetimes supply of razor cartridges THAT badly? and who has that kind of storage space in their home? Jake is a die hard Costco fan but after a few shitty weekend experiences in there I've made a pledge to never go back. unless I'm starving and happen to be driving by one, because you can't beat the free samples. Also, you look beautiful and I love the nails!

kailyn marie said...

why would you give up chocolate?! IT'S SO GOOD!!!!!

p.s. i have a similar sweater, and you look so perty in that pic.

kbye.

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

I think I almost shanked someone the last time I went to Costco....stop stealing my samples and walking so slow! Mark goes by himself now in the middle of the week I am protesting for a little while. Grabbing your button pretty lady! xoxoxoxo

Christina said...

sample stands not being full, hahah! seriously how annoying is that. like you smell it but it's not there for you to taste it?! rude.
