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?)
