I had a bit of a disappointing day. Today is my husband's Birthday. We had a great day celebrating but I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to buy him the present that I wanted to. I really wanted to buy him tickets to a Philadelphia Phillie's game. Of course they are all sold out and the only way (if I'm reading it correctly) to buy them is to purchase them from someone that already bought them and is now selling them to make a profit. That just seem so greedy and wrong. Oh well. I told my husband about it and he doesn't want me to purchase them that way. I hope at some point soon I will figure out a way to get them for him. It's been years since we have gone to a game together and now that I'm working I would really love to buy them.
That was just one of my disappointments for the day. I also had a disappointing doctor's appointment today. I went to my Doctor's to discuss my neck pain and migraines. He saw me for all of a minute and then ordered me a muscle relaxer. Not exactly what I was looking for. :( I'm not saying he is wrong in his thinking but I just wish he would have acknowledged my concerns about my neck instead of just blaming it on my Fibromyalgia and sending me home with more meds. I seriously sat in the office wanting to cry. All I wanted was for someone to listen to me and try to figure out why my pain is so bad and I feel like I got brushed off and that my Doctor was too busy to care. Although I am disappointed in the way my appointment went I am going to give the muscle relaxers a try. I prayed before my appointment that I would get some help and some answers today and I am going to leave it in God's hands.
On an better note I got to meet some really great kids today at an event that we hold at our mall. It's called Classroom in the Mall. We have a Chamber Foundation that puts this event together for local high school students to come to the mall and gain some knowledge on how a mall is run and also work with some of the stores to do some really creative activities. I had a great time talking to them about my life and my career. It's always so much fun to tell the younger generation things that you wish you would have been told when you were their age. I also got to judge the Marketing campaigns that they came up with for products they created. They were all so cute and so creative. It really was a lot of fun spending the day with them.
Tonight I had a major accomplishment. Something that I haven't done in a long time. The girls and I took my husband to Applebee's for his Birthday tonight. Applebee's is one of our favorite restaurants but we don't eat there very much because we can't seem to get out of there without our bill being between $60.00 and $80.00. Although we have never been disappointed with their food. We usually go for a special occasion or a birthday treat. My accomplishment was that I was able to control myself and order one of their Weight Watchers meals. And even better I only ate half of it. I know. It felt so good to have a little control. I hope I can continue to have this type of self control. It will definitely speed up my weight loss.
Now it's time for me to get to sleep. Morning comes way too quickly and I have been dragging all week. I hope the two muscle relaxers I took don't keep me from being able to get up tomorrow morning.
