Two Mondays in one

I am tormented yet again today. I am doubting myself. I don’t know why I bother going on sometimes.

I had a very bad night last night. I got upset at something I probably should not have when Lisa Toebben posted a picture of herself with Brittany Davidson and their significant others from Saturday night while celebrating Brittany’s birthday. I ran out of Buffalo Wild Wings in a huff without saying goodbye, broke down and cried after checking in to the Courtyard Briarcliff, and then couldn’t get it out of my head even after a trip to The Cheesecake Factory, a stop at QuikTrip in Merriam, and then a return to Buffalo Wild Wings to talk things out with Elizabeth Psesnski and Tori Weber.

Today got off to a horrendous start. I could not get going in the morning, largely because I exhausted myself last night by crying myself out. I fell behind with my work, and then I seriously could not decide whether or not I would go to Buffalo Wild Wings. Braidey Howe told me she was working, so I figured I would go and see what was going on.

About the only good thing from the first part of today was the tiramisu cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. I still have two slices of Kahlua in the refrigerator. I thought about eating a slice tonight, but I now have other plans for that.

At first I was very apprehensive when I got to Buffalo Wild Wings at 2:40. I said on Facebook I was scared, but Tori tried to tell me I was seriously overthinking and everything would be okay. I hoped she was wright. I had my doubts.

Fortunately, Tori was right. Lisa came in at 4 and everything was fine. She understood why I was upset about not going out besides going to Buffalo Wild Wings, but reminded me I have so much to be thankful for. I do. Lisa is too good a friend to ever hurt me, as are Liz, Tori, Brittany and a lot of the others I’ve met through the years at Buffalo Wild Wings.

It turned out to be a pretty good night. I posted my second highest score all-time on Buzztime’s The Pulse, 29,170, which should get me #1 in the nation for the fifth consecutive week. The food was outstanding. I made the right call with the blackened chicken breast instead of just grilled.

I just played my last round of trivia. Time to work until I leave for the hotel. Taco Bell is a possibility. At least I have the hotel room for another night in case I need it past noon. I’m going to have to go to Buffalo Wild Wings for 11 to give Lisa the Kahlua cheesecake. Maybe Brittany will show up and she can take the other piece.
