Emotionally drained

Well, it's been quite a weekend. Friday my parents came down to visit and that was really nice. We went out to lunch with some family on a lake. It was really nice to see my mom's cousin and to hang out by a lake! Then we went to target and got some more stuff for my apartment. We came back here and hung some new decorations. I have taken down the last of the things that my ex had given me. That was harder than I thought. I was upset at myself that I broke down after 7 months (I can't believe it's been that long!), but it had to be done. The walls look nice with the new things I got. I will post pictures soon (hopefully if you want to see them!)

Then Saturday I had class from 9-4 (that really should be illegal). I was bored Saturday night. I slept until 11:30 this morning and then got on with my day. I made some cookies and watched some movies. I didn't have too much motivation.

I have my screen saver on my computer set to show my pictures. Well, I hadn't cleared out my pictures yet and was sick of seeing my ex when I would go by my computer. Seeing as I was already drained, I figured I would do that tonight. So I went through and deleted all the pictures that had my ex in them. That was definitely harder than I thought. It's hard to delete those memories, even if it's just from my computer. I got through it though and now I don't have to worry about coming in the computer room and seeing his face on the screen. I'm hoping that helps!

Well, I am off to bed. It's up early tomorrow for me with the start of a very long week. I am going to visit my parents this weekend though so hopefully that will help me get through the week (I miss my puppies!!!!) I also have a quiz in my Saturday class that I need to study for this week. Wish me luck.

Oh and I didn't win the prize of the earphones. Who wants to volunteer to buy them for me? :)

Any big plans this week????

I think that taking those photos off my computer would be the first thing I'd do. I'm sure it will help tremendously!

I think it's really hard to clean house, just reminds you of everything. Good for you though!

Nothing big this week, just trying to get enough sleep :D

I have not been able to get rid of memories in that way. Both of my serious relationships (there have been 2 if you exclude the one from high school) have ended amicably. I mean... I may have been hurt and SUPER sad... even angry. But I didn't feel like I wanted to purge myself of the good times.

Now some things-- things without sentimental value that I was given, those can leave. But things that still hold a lot of value, I keep. In a box, but I keep. I guess everyone deals differently. Then again, I am still not over him so maybe I could be doing better.
