Fun Facts Friday - Pet Peeves

Friday Rambling
Oh we finally have some sunshine today. Sun + Friday + Rest Day = Great Day. Now if only I had been off work, oh the possibilities. Oh well, can't have it all right?

It always feels a bit odd to post on Fridays when I don't have a workout or recipe to share. I know that's not the only reason you all read of course, but you do get used to a format. I really don't feel like I have any spectacular insights today either. I'm sort of trying to talk myself off the proverbial ledge. I have to go to Dallas Sunday-Wednesday for work. Thankfully no flying is involved, but I just get stressed about my meals and not knowing if there will be any decent vegetarian options for me. Plus, plain and simple, I don't like to be away from home without the hubs. 

I don't know if the facility where we are attending the training has a break room or cafeteria (the contact has yet to reply back dang it). Anyway, the guys I'm going with are full-on meat eaters. Not thinking I can get them to hit up a vegetarian's dream like Spiral Diner (thanks Jenny for the suggestion).

I do plan on taking a cooler of food though. The guys let me pick the hotel, so I opted for one that had rooms with a fridge and microwave. Oh, and of course it has a gym. I'm really excited that this hotel actually has a fitness center with free weights - usually it's a machine or nothing at all. So, workouts will be on track if nothing else. We're staying near the Galleria Mall - so if any of you know of any great places to eat in that area, please please please share.

I know the advice from everyone will be to just relax and try to enjoy the trip. That's what I am going to try to do. I mean, who knows, maybe I'll stumble upon a great place to eat, plus we are close to a mall. So, maybe some shopping?

Fun Facts Friday - Pet Peeves
Some of you have noticed that I haven't been quite myself. I think we all go through lulls and rough patches though. We can't be sunshine and rainbows all the time right? Today's Fun Facts Friday was inspired by a recent post by Shannon @ The Daily Balance. It might sound a bit down - but it was a list of things she hates. Oh come on, we ALL have pet peeves and things that just get under our skins. So let's get real and vent a bit today with the Fun Facts Friday - Pet Peeves Addition.

1. Tailgaters - get off my freaking bumper. You make me want to slow down, not speed up. Besides, I am typically speeding myself so back the eff off. Especially if there is a car in front of me. Am I supposed to drive over them?

2. Office Manicures - coworkers, please stop trimming your nails at work. It's ok to repair a snagged or torn nail, but to sit and cut each and every nail once or twice a week???

3. Elevator Abusers
- folks, it's ok to exert some energy and take the stairs for a few flights. Please stop hogging the elevator to ride only one floor up or down (directed solely towards able-body individuals of course) when some of us have to get to the 10th floor. It really sucks to stop 9 times. 

4. Text Addicts
- please don't text while we're supposed to be having a conversation. To me, it's rude. It makes me feel like our conversation is unimportant. I think this is more of a generational thing. I see this more from my younger friends. I honestly don't think they see it as being rude at all. But I always try to give my full attention to the other persons or people I'm with.

Ok, I'm done. You're turn. What totally peeves you? Let it out.
