Star Pupil

Yes, I am the good student! I got my first paper back in my Humanities class and I got a 100 on it!! Now this is a tough class, and quite frankly I wasn't sure how he was going to grade. I would have been happy for a B on this, seeing as my quiz grades have been a little less than impressive. But 100?? Yeah, I'm pretty happy about that!

Not much to tell, really. I took the day off yesterday to finish my other paper and some additional homework. That, and I wanted a day off where I wasn't sick. David drove out to Tyler/Longview yesterday so I had the house to myself. Oh, and I had the kitties there, but they're cool. They chill and eat all day, so they don't bug me. Kaylee hung out in the office with me while I worked on my paper, but it's nice to have the warm furry friend in there with you!

I'm still working out and trying to do my best with WW. I've been struggling with the food, but I am getting the exercise in. It's just hard. Mia sent me a very inspirational quote:

"You may have a fresh start at any moment you choose, for the thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down."

I think that is incredibly true. As long as I don't give up, I can't possibly fail. I really like that idea! So I am making this my personal mantra.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

It's been a hard day! I got lots done at work, and then worked out with Susan. It was leg day, so needless to say I am pretty tired. We had dinner with mom, dad, Grampa and Ann this evening, and it was nice. But now I have been working on home work and I am tired! I am about to shower off and go to bed, but wanted to check in with everyone. I am getting myself back on WW this week, so there will be a weigh in on Saturday morning. However, I don't think the news will be good even though I am going to be very good this week.

Hope all is well for everyone! Take care and have a good evening!

Finally! A New Post!

Sorry it's been a week! It's been busy at work, and then I lost my ability to blog from work for a bit while they did something to our Internet up here. But I'm back! I sort of saw Maroon 5 this morning. There is a radio station in my building and they had the band there today. I got to work at 6:30 to see them, and I caught a glimpse. I did take pictures, but I will have to upload them before I can post. That Adam Levine isn't too hard to look at! ;) However, he's nothing compared to my hubby!! :D

It's been a really busy week. I'm settled into my new cube. No more office. No more window with a view. But it's quiet and that's nice. I'm not longer right next to my work BFF, Shanna, but we email each other often so I don't have time to miss cutting up with her. I do get to sit next to my other work BFF, Sandra, so between the three of us we stay pretty entertained. Oh, and we work, too! Sandra is out today, but David is picking Shanna and I up for lunch and taking us to Chipotle, so life is good.

I've been a little spendy this week. I got some new MAC, 4 new pair of shoes (Dillard's is having the 75% off sale, thankyouverymuch!), and a couple of shirts. Yes, I am done for a while. Hey, I can't help it! I'm a member of the shoparazzi! I have needs!

Seriously, I am so ready for spring weather now. Tired of the cold rainy mess we have going on right now. I need some 70 and sunny! I find myself missing the sunny shores of tropical Jamaica right now. *sigh* Maybe for our 5th anniversary we'll head back. Actually, we think we might celebrate the 5th at the Sandals in Antigua. I saw pictures of that resort and we need to check that out! All this travel...I think I drive David nuts with my LONG wish list of places I want to visit. But at least we're going to Paris/London in December! (We wanted to see it all decked out for Christmas!)

And one last can go to courtesy of Kevin! I'm slowly becoming my own website! :)

So that's it for me. Everyone have a wonderful Friday!

Happy Birthday to the Girls!

A quick post to wish Kim and Mia a very happy birthday! We're getting to have dinner tonight to celebrate their fabulousness, and I can't wait!!

It's good to be thirty-faux!

Happy Valentines' Day

I hope everyone is having a nice day. I always used to refer to it as "Singles Awareness Day", but even as a married woman, it's not that big of a deal to me. I now think of it as Birthday Eve for Kim and Mia. :) David is making our annual menu of ribs and mashed potatoes, so I am looking forward to that. My boss brought us all a bag of treats, including Ghiradelli chocolate (damn her!) and some turtles. I am looking forward to a nice evening and a yummy dinner. :)

So I hope everyone has a wonderful day, and if you don't have a significant other, celebrate yourself! Go shopping and eat something decadent for dinner. And know that you are loved!

Have a great day!

A Room With A View

I've moved up in the world, if only for a few days. We're having a bit of shuffling going on here in the office, so until my new cube is ready, I have been relocated to an office. And A pretty good one! It's nice to have a door. For all of you who have one, consider yourself lucky! Although I do miss being right next to my comrades/partners in crime. It's a little quiet in here, but it's fine for the next few days. :) I'll survive. Here's what my view looks like:

Not too bad. There are better views, but there are worse views, for sure. But again, it's nice to have an office, even for a short time. At least it's something different.

Nothing much to report on. I am feeling much better now, and so is David. We're both pretty sick of being sick. Hopefully we're going to be good and healthy for a while now. We've had more than our fair share of germs!

School is going well. I have plenty to keep my busy, so my free time has become a bit of a premium these days. I'm sure friends are wondering why I am such a recluse these days, but I have been a bit worn out. Just trying to recouperate and keep my sanity. Oh, and do well in school!

That's it for today. Everyone have a good Tuesday!

Slightly Less Congested

Yes, I think I am better today. I am still in need of sleep, but I am definitely on the mend. I am going to be laying pretty low this weekend trying to get back 100%. Its been a long week and I am sick of being sick! Mom and I are going to a Valentine's party tomorrow afternoon, but other than that there are no plans. Just lots of relaxing.

Kim and Mia have birthdays next Friday, so I am sure we will be doing something fun to celebrate. After all, it's the anniversary of their 29th birthday! :) (Which anniversary? I'm not saying!) Now I just have to find the perfect birthday gifts!!

Did anyone watch Lipstick Jungle last night? I didn't get to see it all, but I recorded it. I wasn't into Cashmere Mafia when it first started but now I am recording and watching it regularly. Great. I don't need any more TV shows to record! I think I am hoping it will fill the void left by SATC, but nothing really can. That show was absolute greatness!

Seriously, I am so looking forward to getting into my jammies and crawling under the covers tonight. I am a sleepy girl!

Everyone have a great Friday!!

Clawing My Way Back

Man, I have been SICK!! I've had a horrific sinus infection that has really knocked me out. Which sucks because David was sick with a stomach virus all last week, which interferred with birthday fun. And then I got sick, so it's been no fun around our house. But I am better and am going to work tomorrow. And school. It's going to be a long day!

But when I went to the doctor yesterday I lost another pound for a total of 22 now, so that's some good news. :)

I also had a quiz in my health class Saturday and I made an A, so even sick I am still a good student. :)

That's it for now. My NyQuil is kicking in. Hope everyone else is well!
