That Awkward Moment...

Sunday, August 07, 2016

That awkward moment when you feel like you SHOULD update but you don't want to relive the horror that has been your life the last few days!

I sure don't want to go through it all again, because it makes my blood pressure rise, and I am finally now just getting over things.

I will give you the biggest annoyance and the short version of that one detail of my madness...

Some buttheads decided to hack our cell phone account, upgrade our phones to iphones, which meant we could no longer use our phones. It took a week to sort this out, I had no phone for a week (and I do not have a house phone). Then we are told to go to the AT&T store to get our phones reactivated. While waiting for them to do that, my dad's car gets hit in the parking lot (luckily they saw her trying to walk away and saw her do it so she was stuck having to pretend like she wasn't trying to walk away, I yelled at her for sure LOL)... so then we find out they can't activate our phones because of the fraud. And the fraud department has to okay it but they are already closed for the day. So yeah that was the cluster to end all clusters.

Some drama at work about some girl taking a non story and turning it into a story, funny cuz I confronted her yesterday and told her that on her story that she was telling about me, I just wanted her to have the correct facts. Yeah you should have seen her stupid face... I have learned that now that I'm 30, I no longer play around. If you are wrong, and it concerns me I'm going to tell you.

So Wed-Fri was all crap. I ate and I ate, because I am a stress eater. That doesn't make it right, but it's how I react to stress. The funny part about that is the actual stress eating leads to more stress because it leads to weight gain and anxiety because of the overeating. So the fact I continue to do it makes NO SENSE. So I'm working on that. Yesterday was okay, I ate over my calories but still enough to have a slight calorie deficit. I am trying to make today a better day. I have to say part of me really wants to lose this weight and part of me doesn't give a tiny rats butt if I lose it. I am hoping that is just the stress talking... I guess time will tell. emoticon

    Glad you called the colleague out on the silliness. There's no need for drama at work. Good on you to stop it.

    What an awful week! I hope that everything starts going more smoothly soon.

    This line hit me like a sledgehammer: " I have to say part of me really wants to lose this weight and part of me doesn't give a tiny rats butt if I lose it. " It has summed up my feelings for just over a week now. And I've been hating myself for it. But I think I'm working my way past the hatred at least...slowly.

    Take care of yourself!

    I'm also a stress eater, so I understand. I'm sorry all that happened, one thing after another, some weeks are like that! Glad you're starting to get things sorted out but I know it's a big annoyance and ordeal when it's happening!

    Girl, I'm so sorry that you've have such a week and have been put through the ringer. You and I are in the same boat. It's been almost a year since, I've been told NO EXERCSING! Yet, when I asked the surgeon, about exercising, he told me to go for it, and there would be nothing that could stop me. WRONG!!! because of the surgery, the latter part of July, I haven't been even able to walking from one room to another, without being in pain, so I will do my baby steps one day at a time, and I will go as God allows me to go.

    Having NO phone for a week sounds absolutely awful!! I hope the situation resolves today....
    The car being hit in the lot and the woman trying to leave = anger boiling point!
    Love that you are assertive and taking care of things head on.... Good for you!!

    Nasty stuff out there! I hope they find the hackers and deal with them. Sometimes you just have to call them out (person at work, lady who hit your dad's car). But just for today, good eating day!
    1771 days ago
    You have had a weeeeeeek! Wow, and to think I thought mine was rough...perspective! May karma totally seize the creepsters who hacked into your account...for realsies. Yay for Dad catching the despicable woman responsible for the hit and run fiasco. Keeping things real and to the point with the person at work, do what feels right to you. Clueless rarely get stuff, even when we try and clarify. Then again, if more people called out the untruths and false crud...maybe some of that nonsense would end. If you figure that one out...let me know, okay?!

    Stress eating won out early last week for this girl, no doubt about it. Then I fought really hard to let go of its hold over me...major improvement by week's end. Food becomes the problem and center stage, annnnnd I just have to move beyond that nonsense. This is a kick some major hiney/take control, play your best game kind of week. Join me...

    Love and hugs, young friend!

    What a nightmare - that all sounds horrible! Glad you are confronting people who are talking bull about you - I was over 50 before I was able to do that - now I am making up for lost opportunities!
    I am a stress eater too, but for the past month I have told myself that cravings are not an emergency and I put a little plastic box of almonds and chewing gum in my purse instead! Only lost a pound, but am happy to have not become frantic too often for a change.... Hope your cell phones are fine again really soon, sweetheart!

    OH my gosh, sweetie, that is BAD days! Hope that this week is better. Sorry that your acdt. was hacked. That would make me furious.

    That young lady trying to walk away fro hitting your Dad's car! THAT'S AWFUL. Glad you got to "speak to her!"

    good for you for confronting that person who wasn't getting the facts straight. Yup. . . you reach a certain age and it's just not scary to confront people who are not being honest! And when it's about you . . . well, not gonna happen!

    Sorry to hear all the problems,I do know how you feel. Been going through stuff for a couple of weeks And I am a stress eater too. Praying that all will be well and I know you can get it back. One day at a time, even one moment at a time is great. emoticon

    Whoa, poor baby - what a horrible week! I would be stress eating, too. I had no idea someone could hack a phone account and upgrade without your knowledge - and why? Unless it's just to mess with you - I mean, what does the hacker get out of it $$ ? Isn't that basically the point in hacking accounts? To get $$?

    Good for you for confronting the story teller - and the hit & walker! Boom - busted, chica - pay up.

    Hey, here's something funny. I'm getting tweets from your boy Luke Bryan (OK, really the tweets start out as "popular in your network", and there's one from Blake Shelton, too). Every time I see anything about him, I think of you.
