Remember the rules:

– Write a blog post with the Pit & Peak of your week.
– Pit = The low part
– Peak = The high part
-Follow your hosts
– Grab a button
-Jump around, meet some new ladies (and men), and encourage and congratulate!


When left alone my mood is down rather than up.  Still a result of the other week’s discovery about my ex? Maybe.

My dad was sick all week and now my mom is.  Hope I don’t get what they have!!


I switched desks at work so my adding machine is on my right side so I can actually key rather than peck at the numbers.  And I’m farther away from the one woman who drives me nuts at work.  (Think late every day and takes time away from her desk more than you would think is appropriate.)  And the computer screen is nicer!  Hopefully I remember where I sit on Monday!

This Means War is on TV right now.  I absolutely love this movie.  Chelsea and I went to see it in the theaters and then rented it one night to watch again because we loved it so much.



Two good-looking men, how can you go wrong? 🙂

What is one of your peaks from the week?



It’s that time of the week again for Pit & Peak with Tales of a Twenty Something & Bold Butter Baby!

The rules for Pit & Peak are to write a post about the Pit (low part) and Peak (high part) of your week, grab the button (see above), and link up your post on one of the posts done by the lovely hosts.  Easy enough right?


I kind of have two pits this week.

The first one being Monday I found out my ex (2+ years ago the relationship ended) is “in a relationship”.  Can someone please explain to me why this made me feel so down when I found out?!  It definitely didn’t help that it’s that time of the month (TMI?) for me so I’m a little extra emotional.  I have been single these last two years with two guys that I thought there would be something with but of course men were men and what started out well didn’t end well for me.  Not huge heartbreak but just “ugh, why are men like that?!” feelings of disappointment.

The second pit being that I seem to get a headache every afternoon at work.  I wish I knew what was causing these headaches other than work.  I’m thinking it may be the super warm temperature of the room I work in all day every day.  I have no idea how I am going to figure out what the cause is, or what I would do if I did figure it out if it’s something that I cannot change.


My peak for the week is I made plans to go out with one of my good friends either tonight or tomorrow night.  We haven’t seen each other in a couple of weeks now so it will be good to see her and have some drinks.  Also, I need a good girls night out thanks to above mentioned pit of the week involving the ex.

I’m linking up again with Tales of a Twenty Something and Bold Butter Baby for Pit & Peak.

I’ve thought about it since last night (when I meant to do this post) and I really couldn’t come up with something I thought was really a low point of my week.  I’m definitely not complaining about that though and am incredibly thankful for that.  So I chose the fact that I weighed in 0.7 of a pound heavier this week for my weigh in as my pit.  This is definitely something that is in my control though so I’m not going to stay too bummed out about it.


The peak of my week actually last all week long for me.  I was able to observe and learn how to do something new at work.  It helped the days go by faster which was awesome.  And now that I have observed for a week I will get to do the new task this week with someone supervising me.  I am more than ready to be doing more at my job so I am pretty happy about this.

I’m doing my first ever link up and I am excited for it!

Allie of Tales of a Twenty Something and Brin of Bold Butter Baby have teamed up to host the Pit & Peak.  The point is that you share the high point (peak) of your week and your low point (pit) of your week.  (Can someone help me figure out how to insert the logo [picture or I don’t know what you call it] for Pit & Peak into my blog post?)

Pit ~ I had to attend a visitation for a family friend that passed away unexpectedly.  I babysat two of her grandkids while I was in middle and the early years of high school.  It is never easy to lose someone but to unexpectedly lose someone is a bit tougher since there is no warning and no time to wrap your head around the fact that it will happen.  I am certainly not saying that knowing you will lose someone is any easier so I hope you don’t interpret what I said in that way.

Peak ~ I seem to have fallen in love with blogging.  I have done the most posting ever in my now 4th blog this past week.  I also became sponsors for some lovely ladies so I hope to have some more exposure to gain some new readers.  Please say hi to these lovely ladies; Lex of Life by Lex, Rebekah of All That Glitters, and Allie of Tales of a Twenty Something.
