I think I'm gonna take a break from blogging on the weekends... I seem to have more to talk about come Monday morning.
Saturday - I took down my freakin' tree and cleaned the first floor of my house from 8:00 am until about 4:30 pm. I'm talkin' steam cleaning the carpet, washing the kitchen floor, scrubbing counter tops and vacuuming the umpteen tree needles from every crevice. I think next year my two resolutions will be to check my mailbox more often (right now it's about every 7-10 days). The reason for this is I missed the notice from my HOA that said tree pickups would be the week of January 21st. Nice. Good thing my friend's dad has a dumpster that he offered to haul off my pathetic tree to. I'm so excited though because I rearranged the furniture and everything looks so nice! :)) Oh my other resolution will be to take down my tree for the week of tree pickup.
Sunday - I woke up feeling pretty crappy. Sore throat, feverish, achey, chills, basically the same symptoms everyone else has been feeling lately. Polly had WAAY to much energy yesterday. I was ready to post "does anyone want a dog?". 50+ lbs jumping on my stomach is usually fun except for yesterday. I pretty much slept the entire day until about 6:15 to which I tuned to the Superbowl. Let's just say I'm in mourning. I was supposed to go to my neighbor's house to watch but since I wasn't feeling well, I opted to stay in. They were doing a $1 a spot and I picked ten and guess what? I won $50 bucks! That NEVER happens!
Monday - that's today. I'm feeling better than yesterday. I got on the scale this morning and I was up two pounds. I kinda expected it because I didn't really do too well eating this past week. Not many fruits, veggies.. but stayed on target with the water. I am gonna start exercising again. I am feeling bad about paying 84 bucks a month and not using my membership at all. I think I need to start strength training again. I can't tell you how many times I heard on tv or read online (this week alone) that in order to lose weight, you should exercise with weights. So that's what I'm gonna start doing... tonight, after work. *insert sarcastic yay here*
On a sad note, my boss called me this morning to say that one of his very good friends was hit by a car and killed last night as he tried to cross the highway on foot. If you would, please keep his family and friends in prayer. This is a very sad time for many people I know.
