AND THERE I WAS THINKING IT WOULDNT BE!!!
See Friday I got that closure I had been waiting for.
And it hurt.
Yeah. It really did.
But then Saturday I was telling my mom about it.
And you know what?
She put things into perspective for me based on a biblical view.. And that really helped.
(For example: "Would God have been proud of how you walked in kindness for so long? Would God have been okay with how you were getting treated? Would God have been alright with him lying? Would God have been alright with you standing up for yourself? Would God have been alright with your temper? (Which we decided he might be because even Jesus lost his temper from time to time.))
She also said it hurt so bad because I had been under this pressure, this thing had been weighing me down for 9 months. (7 major months and 2 secretly). And my mom says, "It hurts because your bones and everything got used to this weight, became familiar with it, so when it was lifted, your body had to adjust and that is what caused the hurt."
She goes, "You will be amazed at how easily you will smile and laugh again." And you know what guys?
She was right!
I have not laughed so much as I have this weekend.
I am not compensating.
It was real laughing, real smiles.
I feel WONDERFUL!
Friday night was not a fun night. Well parts of it was.
My amazing and wonderful friend.
She is the Anne to my Dianne.
Sometimes I am her Anne to her Dianne..
But I think we decided because of our hair I am Dianne...
...From Anne of Green Gables.
Anyways this wonderful and sweet person.
Comes to my apartment.
Doesn't mind that I am wearing basketball shorts, and a hoodie I stole from another friend, and carrying around a box of minion kleenexes. Nope. She just goes, "You are going to need shoes."
And we drive all the way the nearest big town. We go to waffle house. Where we compare our lives to Anne of Green Gables.
Where she gave this amazing advice.
"Eat your feelings, or your feelings are going to eat you."
And so I did.
However, I had ham.
Sometimes I think it will be worth it.
Then I always decide it is NEVER worth it!
See not ONLY am I Jewish and don't eat pork anyways.
I CAN'T eat pork.
Like physically CAN NOT!
I get so sick.
And guys I got so sick.
I texted my boss, but still ended up working anyhow.
Also can I just note that I have been blessed with amazing bosses?
After work one of my friends and I decided to go to the nearest big town, Fine. I will just say it. We went to Springfield and we decided to go teacher clothes shopping, but first food. (Not that I was hungry.)
So we hit up TJ Maxx and Marshals and Ross' looking for clothes for this friend.
Katrina both loves and hates to go shopping with me. Loves it because I am helpful, good with sales, we always find SOMETHING, and we have fun. She hates it because I am really convincing/ a great sales woman. (The sweater was over half off. it was 16 bucks.)
Well she was all, "You need to find something."
But she had to meet her fiance, and was a bit disappointed I didn't find anything.
(I am super picky cause clothes fit me weird and I like them to fit a certain way... okay... also because NO ONE EVER CARRIES MY SIZE!!!! And people say skinny girls have it easy. WE DON'T!)
So I dropped off my friend to meet her fiance. And I hit the mall.
Well shopping by oneself is sorta boring. So I turned the data on on my phone *gasp!* and saw my mom was online so I started sending her pictures of the CRAZIEST christmas sweaters I could find.
So we went shopping via Facebook.
Then I went to my FAVORITE store EVER! The Limited.
THEY WERE HAVING A FIFTY-SIXTY PERCENT OFF SALE ON SWEATERS AND ON ALREADY MARKED DOWN ITEMS AND LITERALLY EVERYTHING IN THE STORE WAS ON SALE!
So I went in.
A dangerous and bold thing to do.
BECAUSE THE CLOTHES ARE SO STINKING CUTE!!!!
So first I hit up the sale section. I find a few skirts, and NO tops. So I get a bit braver and ask a sales woman what would go with this one plaid skirt.
(guys. Finding size zero stuff is hard. And I hate it.)
So she starts pulling tops for everything I have found, and I was all, "Look I am on a VERY tight budget..." So that she knows not to pull the whole store for me.
So I try on the MULTITUDES of clothes she has found me. And I trying on all these outfits and sending them to my mom via facebook.
And I just LOVED the plaid skirt.
So I did the math for the sweater and the skirt. Original price was $120 for both. HOWEVER, I came up with $47. Which is REALLY good.
But I decided I needed to check other stores too. So I had them hold my outfit. (Since those were the only ones in my size.)
So me and my mom went scavaging.
I found another outfit that I would have LOVED to get. VERY gypsy. VERY cute! But it was WAYYYYYYY out of my price range!
So I went back to The Limited.
Bought the outfit.
But it wasn't $47.
It was $33!
THIRTY THREE DOLLARS FOR A ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY DOLLAR OUTFIT!!!!
ISN'T GOD JUST AWESOME?!
Then on the car ride home I was jamming out. Like I normally do, and halfway through Springfield I realize there is this car trying to stay even with me.
And I look over and I see this kid jamming out to the same beat I am (I am listening to Pandora so I know he isn't listening to the same song... unless they were playing Minnie The Mooch.
Then On the highway I looked over again, and there they were! The kid was jamming out to beyonce now, and the mom was looking at me CRACKING UP. So I waved!
I have adventures you all!
So I go back home.
Only to go BACK into Springfield with Brady.
Who decided we needed to go see the Peanuts Movie.
(I am squealing for the movie.)
And so we were going to go to this one theater, and I was all:
Brady. No. We need the comfy chair theater.
So we went to the mall (again) and got candy from the candy store.
Well we get to the theater and we end up sitting in the very front.
(OKAY NOW STARTS THE BEST STORY EVER!)
You know how there is always that one person whose laugh makes the movie?
Well during the COMMERCIALS I found out which person that was.
There was this guy. Sitting behind us (obviously) by quite a few rows. And his laugh was AMAZING. I mean he would laugh, then I would laugh at his laugh.
Well the movie is going on. And it is hilarious! And you all need to finish reading this post then go straight out and watch it!
And this hilarious thing happens, and I start cracking up. Which then sets the guy behind us laughing. Which makes me laugh. Which makes him laugh. WE WERE IN A LAUGH CIRCLE.
We were laughing at eachother's laugh.
There was this older guy on the left side of me WHEEZING because he was laughing at the two of us laughing at eachother. He literally leaned over to me and asks, "Are you laughing at his laugh?!" And I laughed and said yes, which than made laugh guy start laughing, which made me laugh, which made my neighbor wheeze. It was a mess. A fantastic and hilarious mess.
Well at the end of the movie I turned around looking for the guy. CAUSE I HAD TO MEET HIM!!!
And I ended up actually walking past this dude. But we were both laughing at eachother at that point so hard that I thought I was going to have an asthma attack.
There was more to the movie, so I stopped walking and turned to watch the rest. This girl comes running up, and guess what?!
I KNOW HER!!!
SHE IS IN MY JUNIOR BLOCK CLASS!!!
We see eachother and screech like normal girls in their habitat. And she goes, "I THOUGHT IT WAS YOU!!! I THOUGHT I RECOGNIZED THAT LAUGH!!!"
And I was all, "WAIT!! YOU?!"
And she goes, "MY TWIN BROTHER IS THE LAUGH!"
WHAT ARE THE ODDS?!
So of course me and him became friends.
Then we all went out for donuts.
BUT GUYS HOW HILARIOUS AND AMAZING IS THAT?!
AND TO THINK WE ALMOST DIDN'T GO TO THAT THEATRE!!!
Yup. That was my weekend! It was awesome!
And I got caught up with Doctor Who.
That is all I am going to say.
Have a good Monday! :D :D :D
