Left earlyish. Not in any of the pictures posted to FB, of course. No one cared that I was there or that I left. Oh well...better than sitting at home and going to bed early, I guess. I enjoyed the beer and food.
Next time just try to have an interesting conversation with just one person. You can do it, you would be surprised how it can turn the night around.
Maybe you should join your friends and party with them
...something on my car fixed, and they couldn't fix it, so have to go back again another time. Pulled over by cop for using my phone (was looking at map), but at least he didn't give me a ticket.
'Ugly sweater' party tonight. I'm anxious...this is the group that used to be my friends and who I felt so left out of. Glad to be invited, but it might be awkward. Hope it goes ok. I'm making my chicken wing dip to bring...
Forgot: Dog had me up in the middle of the night to go outside. Turns out, he had been sick downstairs, but didn't notice until this morning. Ugh. Really tired all day. Going to be tough to stay awake for this party.
Hope you enjoy the party. xx
The feel-like temp has been below 0F this week. Supposed to warm up a bit for next week (near freezing). One more week of work before xmas. Can't believe it's xmas already. Don't feel in the mood at all. Feel low.
5 suggests you know the low is temporary and there is no crisis. Keep going day by day, you'll get through this Jeff.
Sorry for how you are feeling Jeff. I so miss running. Been 2 months now and still no where near well enough. Maybe 2018. Be well dear Panda
Glad to at least see a 5 when you've been in the red. We've had some cold temps, but not THAT cold. Sorry you have to suffer through that. Hope your last week before Christmas goes quickly!
yeah, one of those days.
Maybe weekend will improve things?
My 22nd birthday was ***. I spent it driving I-35 in Thanksgiving traffic. This year was one of my best. There'll be other birthdays and they won't suck as bad. Happy birthday.
Sorry to hear that Jeff. Again many happy returns
Happy birthday 🌟
Tomorrow is just another day...
I think about you. So not totaly alone.
Feeling very low tonight. Very woe-is-me. So f-ing weak. Always so weak. Tomorrow, I'll put a good face on things and eat stupidly and drink a lot. But tonight it hurts. It will hurt even more tomorrow.
I'm glad I can express these thoughts here. I have no other way to vent these kinds of thoughts. I hold them in until I feel like I'll explode...
Happy birthday Jeff! We can celebrate your day in our panda's world. Hope you have a little happiness
Happy birthday for tomorrow!! Sending love
I know just how you feel Jeff. The age doesn't matter in terms of emotional attatchment I place on my own birthday. And I have beaten myself up a lot over the years saying my family and friends don't care enough about me.
Jeff many happy returns. Have a great day and know you are loved and respected by many Pandas
Happy early bday, wish we could have a party together!
our birthdays are a week apart. Happy birthday, bro.
Happy birthday Jeff!! Hopelijk your day won't be as bad as you thought it'd be.
Happy birthday Jeff, sending you lots of hugs to celebrate. 🤗🤗🤗🎁🎂
Happy Happy Birthday, Jeff!!! See here? There are loads of people that care! I hope your day is going better than imagined. 💚
Happy Birthday, Jeff! Sorry I wasn't on earlier. Wishing you many fulfilling connections with nice people both on and offline. 💜
Thank you, pandas! <3
Was so hard to leave the house last night to go to my group run. It was 24F and snowing, but I got out there. Glad I did. New person joined. Just a few of us, but got a few cold miles in and then talked to new guy over beers.
Ran a few more miles on the treadmill this morning while watching Punisher on Netflix. Don't want to have to run tomorrow.
Bit worried snow will get in the way of birthday things tomorrow. But then, I guess it doesn't matter much. No real plans...just want to go out to eat in evening and have beers. Supposed to get ice cream with work ppl, but that might not happen.
Well done on making it to work in the snow! It's terrifying for me so I feel your pain. Glad you met a new running buddy. Hopefully you guys will become friends. And HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY, JEFF!!!!! 🎉
ieehhh. snow is scary to drive in. It's almost your birthday then!!!!
...mentally more than physically today. Ah well, it's just another day.
monday december mornings can be the most bleak but christmas is on the horizon
The race was 15 miles - 3 5-mile loops through a local park. I forgot how hard this course is. Tons of hills, including two crazy ones. And in 3 loops, you have to do them all 3 times! Wow, that's a struggle.
Weather was good for winter race, though. Not much mud. Last year, I dropped after 2 loops, so this year I wanted to make up for it, to prove to myself I'm stronger. My calves cramped up last year and did again this year. Don't know why.
But I kept going. The third loop was pretty slow, but I finished it! Felt good to be done! It's a hard 15 miles, but a good last race of the year. Think next year I'd just do the 5 or 10.
Had people to my house last night for a beer share. It went ok. Dog was much better behaved than usual. We had some good food, which most people didn't eat (too much crappy food leftovers means I'll eat badly now)...
Was afraid the beer would really effect me because I was dehydrated all day. Didn't drink too much. Felt like maybe I was letting people down for ending things early, but I was glad they left before 10. Meant a decent night's sleep.
Was fun to have people over and just relax and talk. Didn't even get to the special beer I was saving for last. Will bring it to xmas party I was invited to next weekend.
Tired this morning. Just watching TV. Hopefully going out and watching football later. Have to clean and get groceries and do all the stupid boring weekend stuff that is such a drag. Cold and snowy today. Feeling loggy. Ah well.
Well done, Jeff! Sounds like you kicked a**! And good job on having people over afterwards. I hate when people come to our house.
Good job Jeff, 15 Miles! That's far... Especially with all the loops. Having some people over afterwards is a great job, i understand that you wanted them to leave a bit early, you must've been exausted. How r ur claves now?
Thank you all! I'm doing ok today, Emma!
