TGIF Baby!

Have you ever had one of those weeks?  The kind that start off good and don’t necessarily end badly, but it certainly doesn’t live up to the expectations you had at the beginning.  I think I am on my way to having one of those weeks.  The final deciding factor will be league bowling tonight.

I am by no means a pro when it comes to bowling but I still love it anyway.  Currently my average is a 160.  It’s not the highest it’s ever been, but it’s a work in progress.  I give props to myself for having bowled a 289 in the past.  That’s pretty damn close to a perfect 300.  Unfortunately, the elusive 300 has taunted me ever since.  I doubt I will get one in my lifetime but no worries, if I do, you’ll hear all about it.  I’m hoping that our team can pull another 7 points (max to win) this week as we are getting down to the wire and towards the end of the season.  We are in 8th place out of 36 teams so even if we finish in the top ten I will be happy with that.  It should be a decent chunk of change for the team.

So back to the week I’m having.  It started out with losing a good friend and since I don’t have many, it really really sucks.  Even more importantly, because they were a friend for a long time and they unknowingly helped me through some really rough times in my youth.  It’s hard not being able to just say hi and talk about anything or nothing with them.  Mind you, it’s not because they are gone, but rather because they just can’t or are not permitted to talk to me anymore.

Someone once told me that if you have even five really good friends that you are doing excellent.  I was an extremely private person growing up and it’s hard to break that habit once it’s started.  So making a multitude of friends wasn’t for me and when you put yourself out there and get burned, it makes it even worse.  The other strike against me is having three brothers which means relating to the opposite sex comes a little easier than talking ‘shopping’ with one of the girls.

Alas, good things are on the way because after that, I received my first ever blogging award.  And I confess, I am still giddy over it.  It’s such a great feeling knowing that others get a kick out of my writing as much as I do when reading theirs.  I have my very own ‘followers’.  How awesome is that??

As with any good thing, a bad thing must follow so that you don’t get too excited over how great your week is turning out to be.  Last night as I walked into my bedroom, in a hurry, not paying attention to where I was going, I ran into my solid wood dresser with my foot.  My pinky toe is now sporting various shades of blue and purple.  And I was sporting various swear words as soon as it happened, hopping up and down on one foot while holding the other as if that would really make the throbbing in my now broken or jammed toe better.  The day before bowling!?!? Come on already.

So as the work day and the weekend officially begins, I am still going to hold out hope that my week will end better than it started. Of course, a couple of margaritas might help things out a bit.  All I know is…thank God it’s Friday!

    • we took 5 out of 7 points so not too bad. I even bowled over a 200 my first game. Hopefully we are still in 5th place or better. 😉
