Interesting weekend. Met some people Sat who I haven't seen in 15-20 years. We used to get together every Friday for coffee. Helped me get through hard times. One died recently, so was...(cont.)

...a mini reunion/memorial. Disappointed a lot of people I remember didn't show, but I knew a couple. Left me feeling very nostalgic. Those were hard times mentally, but some very good times as well.

One woman I barely remember added me on FB last night and starts messaging me. She's married with 3 kids. Then she starts saying that I'm 'still cute' and 'why aren't you married'... Um...awkward. Not sure how to respond to that.

Jeff M

But hey, kinda nice to hear someone thinks I'm attractive. Second woman to compliment me recently, even though neither are options for me. So I guess that's something...

Anyway, was hard coming home after that, feeling very lonely with no one to talk to. Sometimes, I just want to talk about things, old times and feelings... I almost typed that I miss having someone to talk to, but that's silly. I never really did.

Anyway, the weekend was very lonely. Ran 10 miles Saturday morning but not at all Sunday. Watched some football by myself at a bar (literally, almost. Two other people there and not for the game). Made a healthy dinner/lunches this week. And back...

Been a long week, and have a lot of meetings and trainings to do today. No plans at all this weekend, which means it will probably be lonely. That's okay, I guess. Good run last night.

Slept better last night and feeling better today. Didn't run yesterday. Work stress and lack of sleep just had me feeling rough. Will run tonight in the rain. Feeling I need a vacation.

Jeff, I'm starting a second job and worried about the lack of personal time! So I get how you feel on at least a small sense.

Jeff M

Good luck with that, Reba. That is a big commitment, I know. You have to leave some time for you.

So sleepy. Another night of too few hours. Another rainy day. Another stressful day of work. Feel crummy and anxious.

Good but short run last night with the group. Terrible night's sleep though. Dog had me up at 2 and kept barking until nearly 3:30. Feel really crummy this morning, and a long day today at work. Ugh.

Oh, MP looks different! Anyway, not a bad weekend. Busy Saturday with a race and big cook-out/party. Quiet, relaxing Sunday alone. Going to be another stressful, long work week. Sigh.

Ran with the group but then sat by myself for beers after because I don't really know anyone well enough to talk to beyond simple small talk. Oh well. Friday. I'm very tired. A little sad.

Stressful day at work yesterday. Almost skipped run again, but glad I went. Nice and cool. Another stressful day, but run tonight and football (US) is back! So that's good at least.
Jeff M

Used to go out and watch the early Sunday game every week at a bar with folks, but that probably won't happen this year since my ex-friend has pushed all of his friends out of his life and isn't any fun even when he is around.

Jeff M

It's almost cold this morning! Also, didn't sleep well. Dog kept barking. Skunk must have passed in middle of night. Could smell it strongly! Blah. Going to be a long, coffee day.

Not a bad three-day weekend. Don't often post here on weekends, but sad to come back after three days and see so few of my friends post. So much quieter here than it used to be.
Jeff M

Work: Going to be another difficult few days. Lots of things to do in too little time, and this project officially goes live today. Means my team will get blamed for all the failures of the staff, when I've done so much...

Jeff M

Running: 15 on Sat and 6 on Sun with my friend/former training partner. Hope to run with her more. 5 last night with Mon group. Legs are tired. Trying to ramp up miles again to at least 35/week.

Jeff M
03 Sep 2019 · LEGEND

Weekend: Ate and drank too much, as always. Yesterday was really dreary, and I did so little. I feel bad for not cleaning and getting other things accomplished. Maybe I needed a rest weekend after previous few weeks.

Haven't really slept well all week, and dog had me up again way too early. Head hurts, and more training today. But last night's run was good, and 3-day weekend coming up, so a tentative 5, I guess.

Yesterday sucked. Work stress and anxiety (probably compounded from poor sleep). Should have run, but went out and ate/drank instead. Now feeling guilty and weak.

Pretty good weekend. Ran 15 miles Saturday morning then volunteered at a trail race. Had a good dinner there, then beers with an old coworker later. BBQ/beer dinner Sun night.
Jeff M

The 6 is much more for a good weekend around people without feeling completely alone. This morning, I'm feeling the effect of all the food and beer. Feeling gross and facing a really hard week ahead.

Stress and anxiety really got to me yesterday. Felt so sick after work. Went to run anyway and had best run in a while. Beautiful weather and nice run along river. Felt so much better after! Grateful!

So tired this morning. Burned out at work, but so much to do. Beer/dinner tonight should be good, but socially tough. Trying so hard to shut up, since no one cares what I say or think...
Jeff M
20 Aug 2019 · LEGEND

I keep reminding myself that. It's obvious as people check out when I'm talking or don't even notice if I stop in mid-sentence. They're off on another conversation or thought.

Jeff M
20 Aug 2019 · LEGEND

I just wish I could stop having the need to speak. It's that lack of social contact that does me in every time. I hate that I need people. I want to be able to be ok being totally alone, because that's my lot in life. But I'm not...and suffer for it.

Jeff M
20 Aug 2019 · LEGEND

Supposed to call someone for work right now. Don't want to. Won't be a bad conversation, just hate having to do it. More of that work burnout, probably. Just want to sleep. I guess more coffee...:/

Jeff M
