A Rough Weekend

Can I just tell you how glad I am that it's a new week? 

To say this past weekend was rough would be the understatement of the year. Don't get me wrong, there were a few times that were golden (like our girls night). But for the most part, it was really rough. 

My Friday started out with doing chores at home, no big deal. Then going to dinner with my dad and some family friends. That's when it all started to go downhill. I'm not one to say that I'm great and I'm going to go somewhere and do great things, but you know what I do believe in myself. 

It was during this said dinner that one of the people there started to try and challenge me. Telling me that "we'll see if you actually make it into graduate school" and "you just think you're going to go somewhere with your degree." My dad came to my defense,  as my parents always do, but it still stung. 

Then Saturday I filled in at work for a co-worker, then had to go home and literally scrub my sister and I's bathroom. She isn't the neatest person, to say the least. And the bathroom was DISGUSTING. So bang, clean. But while I was doing that, my dad had to go three hours away to my paw-paws camp and cut grass. Normally my aunt and uncle would do it, but he was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. And instead of being able to go through his first chemotherapy session, he had to get a port put in place. 

That was rough, to say the least. But later that night I had girls night with two really awesome people. It was so helpful and really cheered me up. 

However, Sunday came around (with a vengeance) and instead of being a relaxing sunday, it was the exact opposite. Elliot and I got into a huge fight, tears were involved (not him). Things were resolved later on, but it took a few hours to get everything out in the open. 

So for me, Monday is bringing a new beginning. A second chance to get things right. Needless to say, I wanted to post about this because it's my life. It's real, and this is my blog. While things may seem peachy most of the time, it's not all rainbows and sunshine over here!

What did you do this weekend? Did you have a great time?


  1. Man that all sounds rough but I still love that you are looking at Monday in a positive light as a fresh beginning and a new week. Also can't believe the nerve of some people trying to challenge your dreams -- I can't tell you how many times people have made me question my choice of being an English major and have made me feel like I will go nowhere with that path. Keep your chin up, darling.. here's to a great week! xo


  2. Sounds way rough with your dinner. I hate it when people are discouraging or nonbelieving. What is the point in them bringing you down or expressing that they don't think you can do it? All is does is bring everyone down and it drives me crazy. Keep your head up- you can do anything you want to! Just found your blog and have loved looking around and getting to know you better. You're adorable and I'm excited to follow along!
