Late trainer ride since my power was out for 2+ hours. I had literally just gotten into my bike clothes and shoes and picked a Trainer Road workout when a huge storm came through and I thought... "I'm probably going to lose power" and about 10 seconds later I did. It's one of the more frustrating parts of living where I do. Every. Single. Time. it storms - big or small - my power goes out.

Mid year performance review day with my boss - it went great for the most part - she said many times how much she values my contributions, appreciates my professionalism and even said twice she didn't know what she would do without me. Yay. But something she mentioned to "work on" struck a nerve with me - how I sometimes show my "frustration" when dealing with rapid rounds of changes from executive work and that I should keep an eye on my facial expressions, emotions, etc. When I pressed her for an example (because, as I told her, I actually PRIDE myself on keeping my emotions in check and it's the reputation EVERYONE knows me by, so this was 100% a surprise to me), she could only reference something from last fall. An event where she's admitted that she knew she was catching me off guard, that we talked about last year and moved on from. And it was in 2018! This is my 2019 performance check in.

Anyway, she went on to say I'm free to vent and express frustration to her - great - I do that when I think I should - and not in front of executives. I asked her point blank if that's something she's noticed me doing in front of executives and she said "No, you do a great job of keeping it in check with them." So I'm like "what's the issue then, if it's appropriate to show emotion to you and that's where I keep it?" and she didn't have an answer. I had to then say that it was confusing to see that example written multiple times in my review if it wasn't really an issue, so she said she agreed and would go back and take out all but one of the references (noting just to keep an eye on it as I have been doing).

I honestly think she couldn't come up with anything constructive for me to work on, so was grasping at a one-time event from last year to put something on paper.

Seriously considering purchasing my own gel manicure kit. I go in spurts where I love getting my nails done, and I adore that gel polish truly lasts for 2 weeks without chipping. But the frugal side of me is looking at the cost. I can get a UV curing lamp for $18.99 on Amazon, and a set of 6 gel polish colors + base and top coats for $19.99. COMBINED, that's about the cost of one gel manicure. I feel like I owe it to myself and my bank account to try

Didn’t feel like driving over an hour to the Tri club ride at Silk Sheets. Would have likely taken 2 hours to drive home. So I headed to Silver Comet Trail solo and had a great ride. Had to get off the bike 3 miles from the end as my hot foot was getting unbearable. Saw an armadillo, random!

Found out yesterday that my former boss from my old company passed away. I knew he had been battling brain cancer, but it's never easy to hear news like that. My Dad knew him, too, and he reminded me of my Dad in some ways.

BUUUUUUUt in better news, we are celebrating Christina's bday tomorrow night with Mexican food and a drag show in Midtown. I'm SO looking forward to this! 

I will swim tonight. I will swim tonight. I will swim tonight.
