1. I met the baby on Saturday.  She's beautiful and I fell instantly in love.  At first, I was worried to be around her and my 4 year old niece (the new niece's sister), thinking that they would make me "miss" not having a baby of my own.  However, that is not the case.  They make me feel better.  I think it is because these two children are in my life and I get to love them as much as I want.  And, they love me back.

2. Work is ABSOLUTELY crazy busy right now.  I don't understand, nor do I approve.  I'm supposed to have some free time to get organized and get a head start on my huge winter / spring project.  That is not to be as I've been sucked into some crazy vortex.  Not cool.

3. Christmas shopping is progressing, but has hit a bit of a standstill.  I haven't even started shopping for my husband yet.  I had planned to head out at lunch a few times this week, but that didn't happen (see number 2).

4. I'm doing really good and having fun with my exercise program.  I've gotten to where I feel like I can run.  I did a hill workout today on the treadmill that about killed me.  It was so hard that it was fun.  And, I'm only five pounds away from my goal that I set with Dr. B.

5. My giant dog is a nut.  He ate a book today while we were at work because we left the armoire open.  Jackass.  It was set aside for my Hawaii trip.


  1. Your work sounds a lot like mine lately!! Way to go on only 5 pounds to your goal...that's AWESOME! Sorry to hear the dog ate your book...I guess that means it was good, right? :-)

  2. I'm so glad that the visit went well. :-) You're doing an awesome job and way to go on your weight loss!

  3. Congrats on your weight loss!

    I'm not doing nearly as much as you and have yet to start shopping for my husband. Though with a bunch of online stores offering free shipping today, that very well may change!

    What's with dogs and paper? If we leave a cardboard box or paper gift bag where our dog can reach it - watch out. It's as if the item in question is possessed and must be thrashed into submission.

  4. Our dog once ate an entire pillowcase filled with Halloween trick-or-treat candy, wrappers and all. Dogs are so weird sometimes! ;)

    Congrats on being so close to your weight loss goal!
