NutriSystem is controlling me for now!

Sorry I have been MIA. Really, aren't you used to it? I'm going to try to be better AGAIN, but with work, school, 2 dogs, a diet and a long distance boyfriend, what do you expect? lol

On that note, here is your super quick and dirty update...

Work is the same. I worked 6 days this week. I'm beat.

School? Well, tomorrow is the end of week 8 out of 9 weeks. So, next week will be rough since it's finals. New classes start the very following week, but week 1 is pretty chill. At this rate, I'll have my associates the first week of August. WooHoo!

Puppies? Dega and Indy are fine. They are both sleeping at my feet now. All they have lined up tomorrow is grooming. They are OVERDUE. So, it'll be nice to not to have to stay home with them. They'll be so cute and have to go out.

The diet? Well, I started NutriSystem. I get on the scale when I go see the boy, but I started at 208. Isn't that nuts? Food is decent, and I think it will work. I guess you will get to see.

The boy? Could I love him any more? Nope. He's perfect for me, and we are just busy planning a Daytona 500 party and our vacation in May.

That's it for now.

Hmmm... 2009?

I'm in Ohio. I normally get up at about 8am CST especially when I don't have to be at work until 10am. This morning, though, I got up with Eric. So, that would be 5am CST. I was tempted to go back to sleep, but it is much easier to sleep when he sleeps. So, I got up and did some homework. I found clothes in my mess of a suitcase to wear to my seminar today. I had time to kill; so, I bought a few albums for my iPod. Since I don't have to call Mom for a ride (my car is going to get new tires today) until 7:30am, I thought it might be a good time to blog some. I always wish that I had more time to do this. Life seems to catch up on me, and next thing you know, I'm behind the 8 ball. I don't even play pool. (lol)

So, I got to thinking.... 2009! Wow. Really? It seems like ten years ago I was a world away. The funny thing is that it seems I have come full circle on some things. Most of you know that Eric and I dated before. Well, ten years ago, that's what I was doing. I was working as a waitress, going to Sinclair and dating Eric. I hadn't joined the Navy yet, and I had just gotten my first tattoo the month before. I didn't have a driver's license, and I had this cute 1 bedroom apartment across the street from Cleveland Elementary. Life seemed so much simpler then. Though, I'm happier now then I have ever been. I am very lucky, and I know that. I have a good job, a great man and a life. I'm not in Iraq, and I'm not on the verge of losing my job. So, it can't be that bad, right? School is going well, and I should have my Associate's (FINALLY!!!) by the end of this year.

I don't normally make resolutions. It really is a great way to set yourself up to fail, but I do want to live better this year. I want to get healthy, and I want to be proud of who I am and what I do. (Not that I'm not proud currently...) I'm just cleaning out the cobwebs so to speak.

So, that's it for now. I'm going to start getting dressed. I desperately need coffee already, and I'm wondering if I should take socks to knit to the seminar in case we get a long lunch.

just another Sunday

I can't believe that I slept so late. I had plans of actually being productive today. I wanted to get up and take a shower. I wanted to go to church. (Though, I can go tonight. So, that's not a total bust.) I wanted to come home and do all the laundry and finish hanging it up or putting it away in the dresser. I wanted to go to Home Depot or something like that and get screws to attach the headboard to the frame. (Why it doesn't come with screws? I don't know.) I wanted to make the bed and set the alarm clock. I wanted to knit and hopefully finish some knitting projects that are so close, but I can't finish cause I keep starting new things. I wanted to go to the post office to send back my latest movies I finished watching. Oh, well... I guess a late start is better than nothing.

In happier news, I get to go to Ohio on Tuesday for 5 days. God, I can't wait to be able to see Eric for 5 days!!! I have a work seminar on Wednesday and Thursday. So, I took a vacation day for Friday. It'll be nice.

That means I have more stuff to do though. I need to take the car in for new tires for the trip. I need to take the dogs to the kennel. Joy...

Well, I'm off to start the fun. Hopefully, I won't fall asleep on the couch and sleep the day away.
