Oh, gosh.... I leave for a week and great things happen!

I have been INSANELY busy. And do you know what happened while I was gone? I got TWO AWARDS! :) It seriously has made my morning. My day, even!! But the thing is, I have to leave in 10 minutes and I won't be home until 10:30 tonight, after class.
I'll have to learn how to go accept it. I've been trying to figure out how to tag people in a post so that you can click on it and get to their blog... people gave me instructions, and I've googled it, but blogger seems to suck just a wee bit much!!
So when I have some time in a couple days, I'm gonna figure this out. You ladies rock. Thank you SO much!

In other news, I am exhausted, but well. I spent the whole holiday weekend catching up on dangerously foul dishes, laundry, and shoving my nose in my schoolbooks. Oh, and a bit of gym-going, too :) I got a gift certificate to Target from my job, and I bought a fitness ball with it. I'm excited about the new possibilities! It's a turning point for me; I'm a shopping fanatic. Clothes, shoes, jewelry; you give me an excuse, and I'll blow money like nobody's business. The fact that I chose to spend it on my health has made me super-happy with myself.

I'm so sorry that I've been absent, but I can't tell you this isn't what it's gonna be like all semester! I'll get here when I can. I read your blogs on my break at work - which always energizes me. For some reason, my employer has blocked the ability to POST somehow. Oh, well. It just makes sure I have time to read up on all of you wonderful women!!

Due to the holiday, my weight loss meeting on monday was cancelled; so no weigh in this week. It's a good thing, though, because I wasn't an angel this weekend! I had a kids meal from McDonald's one day; and a big family lasagna dinner the other. It was delicious, and I don't regret a minute of that dinner! (The McDonald's... not so much). My mother in law even made brownies with black beans to try to make a healthier dessert for me. It was so sweet; and surprisingly yummy.

Well, it's that time. 8 hours of office work, followed by 45 minutes at the gym, followed by 30 minutes for dinner, 4 hours of class, and then HEAD HITS PILLOW!!!!

(is it bad that I'm already excited to go to sleep tonight?)


  1. Congratulations on your two awards. How very exciting.

    I don't envy your schedule at all. I remember those days all too well. You'll get through it though and feel so wonderful afterwards.

    Fitting the exercise into your schedule is great. You will feel good about yourself for doing it and it will most likely give you more energy as well as help you relieve any stress.

  2. I am exhausted just thinking about your daily schedule! You can do it! I am proud of you for making time to hit the gym. With a busy schedule, it totally helps stress relief!

  3. I actually have been trying to catch up on blogs reading them on my phone at work...but I can't comment there! I find myself marking all the ones I want to comment on (who am I kidding, it's all of them) and having to go back anyway once I get home :) for my own blog though...I'm testing out writing it just in an email on my breaks at work and then posting it from home. Oh, and of course I try to fit some actual work in there somewhere!
